I Need A Hug, Maybe?

I Need A Hug, Maybe?

A couple weeks ago I talked about how I have changed as I grow older. That one was about my new found love of animals.  Today I want to talk about hugs. I know so many people LOVE hugs...some love them from everyone and anyone, some people love giving them and receiving them. You are not my people. hahahaha I have a really hard time with physical touch. I have always been very particular whom I choose to share my physical self with, even just hugs. I cannot pinpoint exactly when it started but it has been an ongoing problem...

When Christmas Doesn't Feel Like Christmas

Today's blog may not happen. Maybe it will end up being a list of things I love or a list of things I hate.  Maybe it will just be a jumbled mess of all the lists running around in my head. I doubt anyone could make sense of it, I surely cannot.  Christmas season is here. There are lists of things to do, places to go, people to see....and each of those are both personally and business related for us.  Christmas used to be my favourite time of the year. I loved everything about it. I still try to enjoy...

The Ballet of Sports

This past week on my Facebook feed some guys were showing pictures of their "trip of a lifetime". They went away together to see their favourite sports team perform. They looked like they had a great time...I am so happy that they were able to take that trip together. But it did remind me of this blog that I wrote ages ago (sometimes I pre-write them and then use them when I don't have time to write a new one....today I technically have the time...but since I saw their pictures, I figured now was as good a time as any to...

A Change Of Heart

I talk a lot of how things have changed the older I get....mainly cause they really do. As I move further into my 40's (will be 42 in less than a month), everything seems to be changing, my body, my mind, my heart.  I am going to talk on the last one in this blog post. My heart...and what I mean by that is things that give me joy, that make me happy and calm me.  As far back as I can remember, I always loved babies. I loved looking at them, cuddling them, smelling them....it was my happy place....

Bring on the Rain, Halloween!

Bring on the Rain, Halloween!

I have had many different opinions of Halloween over the years. As a child, I loved Halloween. I enjoyed going through our own "tickle trunk" and picking out what I was going to wear. We were not a family that bought costumes at the store (very often) we always made our own/dressed up in things we already had. More often than not, I went as a hobo (maybe not politically correct anymore but it was an easy costume....lol) or a postman, since that is what my dad was, we always had a costume ready to go! lol  My greatest childhood...
