early onset something or other…

Happy Memorial Day Weekend !

For a lot of people, this means a three-day weekend, but for me it means, I’m working this morning, and meeting with people on Monday. Oh ‘Merica, the wheels of commerce never stop spinning.

So, last night, I was laying in bed, fueled with a few Dos Equis, two margaritas and a Stella Cidre, and I had the BEST idea for a blog post. Seriously, award-winning stuff. I thought about reaching over for my laptop and start writing it, but I specifically remember thinking “oh, this can wait until the morning.”

Well Guess what ‘Merica? I can’t, for the life of me, remember what the hell was so awesome that I thought I could get an award for that specific blog entry.

Seriously, no clue. I just remember that it was good. Inspirational, and meaningful. Maybe I found the secret of life? Hell if I know, because less than 8 hours later, I couldn’t tell you any part of this big idea.

I clearly have early onset dumbassitis. Or something.

Here is what I know to be true today:

1.) I need to feed ALL of my plants and roses.

2.) I’m going to my favorite grocery store today and with a pre-stop at a little winery. Should be fun.

3.) I am really annoyed that I can’t remember what I was going to write.


Wow, this was the opposite of award-winning. Have a good three-day weekend if you get one. Suck it up buttercup and deal with it if you don’t. Be thankful for what we have today because of those who fought for our country and perished.  I wonder what the Vets of WW2 would say if they saw the likes of reality Tv? Would they say “We gave our lives for Honey Boo Boo and the likes of Snooki?”





Summer Days

feed me, things that will make you less fat May 19, 2014

Over the weekend, I was invited to go on a pontoon in Austin in a few weeks.

Yay fun, right?

Reality sunk in: My sizable body will have to don a swim suit of some kind, and expose many, many bits of flesh to the world that otherwise, I like to keep well covered under layers of clothing.

I woke up this morning, and thought “this is it, this is the day that I’m going to get out of bed, walk a few miles and dominate this fluffy body of mine.”

Instead, I grabbed a protein shake and tried to plank for 20 seconds.

Gravity isn’t kind dear readers. Gravity, she is a bitch.


I decided that if I can’t drag myself to do necessary cardio each morning, I’m going to control what goes into my food hole.

This week, I’m going to make this pasta salad so I can cure my bathing suit drama:



Monday Morning Musings

random me May 19, 2014

As I grow older, I realize I have less tolerance for stupidity, carelessness and overall bitchery.

I have always had a hard time keeping my filter on, and these days I’m finding that it is barely hanging on by a zip tie.

Here is what I know to be true:


1.) We are given one life to live. It’s up to us to take advantage of this one life. If you choose to piss away your opportunity, I’m not going to fight you on that. Instead, I’m going to try to make my precious minutes worth something.

2.) I love the fact that as I accumulate more birthdays I have gained a clearer view of what is important, and what is not.

3.) I love friends that accept me for who I am, bossy attitude, snarky mouth, and messy house.

4.) My dogs make me happy. I’m glad I can share my home with these squirrel chasing animals.

5.) I refuse to work for, or with, assholes. Life is too short.

6.) There are going to be times where I just don’t want to do anything. I’m ok with that.

7.) Never underestimate the value of a good alcoholic beverage.


I used to know a woman. She was much older than me, and she had strong opinions on most everything. One of my favorite things she used to say (and there were many sayings) was “put a fork in me, i’m done.”


Yep,  put a fork in me, I’m done. I’m done fighting battles that aren’t worth fighting. I’m done being a passive participant in others shit shows.

Instead, I’m going to continue on my never ending quest to have my house not look like a bomb exploded. I’m going to focus, selfishly, on the things that make me happy. I’m going to try to keep the filter attached, and most importantly:

I’m going to stop giving a shit about things I can’t control or fix.


There you have it. My Monday Morning Musings.
