Snow

Snow – I love it, and I can’t get around in it. Oh, I can drive in it just fine, but I can’t walk in it anymore. I am afraid of falling, so guess I will just have to stay in.

I do have to say that the snow outside my house is beautiful to . . . → Read More: Snow

Stand up for yourself

It is not up to someone else to decide when and where you stand up for yourself. You are not weak just because you decide to let something slide. It is not required that you call out every jerk you come across. You just may not be up to it sometimes, or you may not . . . → Read More: Stand up for yourself

Government shutdown Part 2

So, by the time you read this it will be old news – at least I hope so. I just read that a deal has been reached to open the government for three weeks. I think that’s great – really I do; it is WAY past time to reopen the government. We should not be . . . → Read More: Government shutdown Part 2

Government shutdown

It is past time to open our government back up, and let people get back to work and receiving their paychecks. We can argue about the best way to protect our borders once the government is open. It is disingenuous for some people to characterize this as people who want protected borders versus people who . . . → Read More: Government shutdown

New things

I try to be open to new things, but it is hard sometimes. For instance, they have changed the interface for writing posts for this site. I had no warning (that I saw, anyway), and now I have already spent over 60 minutes doing what I used to do in about 20 . . . → Read More: New things

Congress is finally starting to look like the people they represent

Wow! It is so good to see a Congress that is starting to look like the people they represent! But as I watch all the news about it, I can’t help but think, “Won’t it really be great one day when this will be the norm, and it is no big deal.”

Because really, isn’t . . . → Read More: Congress is finally starting to look like the people they represent

My New Year’s Wish

For this New Year, I wish that we could all see the beauty in ourselves. I wish that we could all realize that we are enough, just the way we are now. And I wish that we could all realize that it is okay to acknowledge the good in us, just like it is okay . . . → Read More: My New Year’s Wish

Do what you say you are going to do

Do what you say you are going to do. At least don’t say what you are going to do until you know you can do it.

There are people who rely on you to do what you say you are going to do. You may think that you are doing someone a favor by saying . . . → Read More: Do what you say you are going to do

Customer Service

I don’t want to cast aspersions on all customer service people; I have run into some who are actually quite good. But I have too many times run into people who don’t seem to know what “customer service” even means. I believe the problem starts with companies who want to say that they take care . . . → Read More: Customer Service

Common decency is common decency

I am learning, though slowly. Someone who doesn’t really know me accused me of being negative on social media the other day. I thought about it for a bit, and then unfriended her. It was a political post I commented on, and frankly, right now, I see very little to be positive about in politics.
