Potholes & Craters - Another Honest Blog

Tomorrow is Bell Let’s Talk day….I am not going to dispute whether it is a good inniative or not, but I believe that mental health issues are definitely something that should be talked openly about. Even for me…and I feel I am pretty open when it comes to my mental health, if you read back through my posts there are several that are solely about my struggles and others that mention them within the context of other things. I wrote a blog near the end of last year about how crappy the year 2022 had been for us. I did...

I'm a Gamer Now?

Is there anything that you are proud of..that really isn’t ‘proud’ worthy? I assume we all do it…I will elaborate the one I thought was so important.  I have never been a video gamer, I was never very good when anyone wanted me to play with them. I did ok at the Wii fit stuff or the sports but any of the actual games…not so much.  On my phone I would play things like Toy Blast or Candy Crush, basically games that did not require knowing how to drive or move characters around. I never played any type of open...

Inner Peace!

It’s the start of a new year…yay or nay, whichever you feel it is upon us. No one has the choice, the world keeps spinning and time keeps turning… To be completely honest, I mean when am I not?

But just a peaceful year, ideally it would be no big surprises and a gentle year….but since that is also a tall order these days, I am more hoping for...

Even The Small Linings Count

This week I am thankful for projects that work out. hahaha Now, you may think that is a very small silver lining to celebrate...and while in the grand scheme of things, you are right...but I am seriously taking ANY and ALL positives I can get this year. lol As for Christmas decorating, usually I just put up whatever decorations we have, what people have given us (yes, we have people who give us Christmas decorations almost every year...mostly my mother...hahaha) whenever I feel like for that year. Sometimes some of them stay in the boxes downstairs, other years I bring...

The Nine Lives of Madaline Stevens

If you know us, you have heard us talk about our dog, Maddie. When they say (whoever they are...everyone I guess haha) that dogs are man's best friend, they are not kidding. This dog has been with us through the last 12 years of our lives. She has been a constant for us, even when everything else around us was changing...she was Maddie, there to comfort and rejoice with us through every stage of our lives.  She has seriously had nine lives, there have been so many times over the years that she could have died/should have....another dog might have....
