In my life I have had a couple of times where I just knew something in my bones. I’m a very good judge of character usually and can tell a lot from a person by what they say and also what they don’t.

It saddens me to feel the way I do about people sometimes and to feel that they are being so very deceitful.

People don’t like to be be taken for a fool and have someone lie to them. The truth will come out.. It always does.


Technology stinks sometimes

Last weekend Robert and I drove out to North Wilkesboro. I had told him I didn’t want to use the GPS, who is affectionately known as Gloria and has been for years since I got her. I wanted to just use road signs and explore. Once we got on 421 I saw signs for the winery out there, Rafaldini. I had been wanting to go out there and take some pictures. I turned off on that exit and saw a sign that pointed the way. We kept going and we were talking and laughing. It felt like we had been going longer than the 3.7 miles the sign had said it was. When we got to Jonesville, I knew we had missed a turn. On the way we had passed a skydive place (I’m NOT doing that) and Robert wanted to stop and check it out. We talked to a girl in there and she gave him all the details about it…I’m still not doing it. While we were in there I saw a brochure for the winery we were trying to find. I asked the girl where it was and she said its back that way, pointing to the way we had originally came from. We had missed the turn. Back on the road again (we will be going back to the skydiving place one of these days, but not fir me) we drove some more. I never saw any signs for it though and we ended up back on the road that takes you back to 421. I said let’s just forget it and go on to North Wilkesboro. Robert said no let’s just get out Gloria and see where to go. So I am pulled over on the side of the road under an overpass and we wait for her to warm up…and wait….and wait. I finally have no patience left because I barely have any to start with. So I start driving again so she can get a satellite signal. By this time Robert has looked it up on his phone and starts telling me which way to go. We had originally missed the road because we were talking and I was looking at a pretty old barn and thinking what a pretty picture it would be. So as we turn into the driveway, Gloria then pipes up from the floorboard….”you have reached your destination.” Thanks Gloria, you were such a help!!! We died laughing and I had to talk Robert out of throwing her out the window. We got there at 10:30 and they don’t open until 11, but the gate was open and I just wanted pictures outside anyway so we probably were trespassing, but no one said anything and there were some cars there. Anyway, it was worth it to get these….

Robert had a spit bubble in the side of his mouth LOL…I was going to edit it out, but I think it’s cute 🙂




I love my new camera!!!

Grumbling because I can…

…and I’m good at it!!

What know what chaps my hind end? (Well, besides the 56 other things I have probably blogged about on here…) runners who run on the white line on a busy main road. I know pedestrians have the right of way, but they need to realize how dangerous that is. I can understand if there is a ditch or no good place to go but the road, but when there is a good 6-7 feet of short green grass, get over!!

Another thing…liquorsickles…don’t even get me started on how much I hate those things!! If you have no license then you shouldn’t be allowed to drive those either, especially on a busy main road. They are more dangerous than the runners.

I’m tired of driving, can you tell??


There have been lots of incidents in my life that I could have let affect who I was as a person…I could have turned bitter or angry or mean or even crazy (and I may be those ways at times, but in general not as a person).

I see a lot of people who let their circumstances define who they are as a person. They have something terrible that has happened to them or a loved one and they can’t overcome it. It changes them. I try my best to live my life for the positives and not the negatives. I have also tried to teach my son that as well. When his daddy and I separated I told him to not be a “victim” but to think about the positives and how instead of two parents, he now has four people in his life that love him and have his best interest at heart. He’s turning out pretty good so far.

I also think if people who let the negatives define them, they become miserable people and they are the ones who you really dread asking how they are, because they are going to tell you.

Define yourself in a positive way and live a happier life, no matter what anyone thinks of you or how someone else may think you are supposed to react to situations, you are the one who has to live your own life!! Be happy…life’s too short to not be.

Now I’m back over here

Hey guys, I’m back to this blog because it seems to be easier for me to keep up with this way….

I haven’t had too much time lately to blog due to running the roads about 120 miles a day. So, needless to say, blogging isn’t at the top of my to do list. Maybe I can figure out a way to record it on some audio in my car then post it….hmmm, I’ll look into that.

I’m glad to be at my new job still and I am still shocked about how wonderful it is. I never dreamed I could have this kind of job and feel more like a nurse than in the hospital. I get to use my brain now more and it’s kind of nice to not run myself ragged. I won’t lie thigh, I will be extra glad when I get to come home to work in about 6-8 more weeks.

I’m also geared up for homeschool for Colby for seventh grade, I have all of his curriculum and have seven weeks of lesson plans already made out. He’s going to be a busy guy 🙂

Speaking of my busy guy, he is now as tall (almost taller) than me and his face is loosing the babified look and his voice is getting different. He isn’t supposed to be this way yet. Where did my “little boy” go?

Over all, I am loving my life and the people in it. Thanks for still reading and hanging in there with me.
