Ramblings

Political Affiliation Divide

UNITED STATES—If you think one political party is better than the other you would be wrong. I hate the fact that our country is so divided on a political front. If you’re a Democrat you can’t be friends with a Republican, if you’re a Republican you can’t be friends with a Democrat, we can’t have a civil argument about...

Retail Therapy

UNITED STATES—We all engage in it, some much more than others, I’m talking about retail therapy. It seems in 2020 during the thick of the pandemic that we were all sheltered from engaging in it. When I talk about retail therapy I mean actually visiting the brick and mortar stores people. Not online shopping. Why? There are some major...

Be A Bit More Patient

UNITED STATES—I am learning something about life and myself as I get older. I have to have a bit more patience. When I was younger I think I had more patience than what I currently have and I am trying everything in my power to get back to that place. Why? Not having patience can get the best of...

Veterans Day Tribute

UNITED STATES—This used to be a federal holiday that I didn’t think much about until my grandfather recently died as a result of COVID-19 back in April. I’m referring to Veterans Day, a federal holiday that is aimed to pay tribute to those who sacrificed their own lives so that people like myself and so many other Americans could...

Communication Is Hard America!

UNITED STATES—There is something I have to admit America. I don’t have the best communication skills. I like to think I do, but I know it is indeed a constant work in progress, after nearly 4 decades on this planet you learn something new about yourself each day. One thing that always struck me odd as a kid is...

Gain An Hour Of Sleep, Lose More Sunlight

UNITED STATES—Well, if you don’t know by now, let me remind you, this Sunday is Daylight Savings Time. What does that mean? Well it happens twice a year. In November, we set our clocks back 1 hour gaining an extra hour of sleep. In April, we spring forward 1 hour losing an hour of sleep. I always like November...

Candy Overload

UNITED STATES—Is there ever a thing as having too much candy? Well, after trick-or-treating with my nieces I think I can say yes. Why? Talk about having nearly 5 pounds of candy each between the two of them that is a total of 10 pounds of candy. I mean a Halloween bag was full to the top with candy,...

Finding A Work Balance

UNITED STATES—It is hard people, we can say all the time that it is so easy to find a work/life balance. We are told countless times we have to find a balance between work and our personal lives. However, it seems more and more our focus is all work and very little play. Why? Why is that? What can...

Get Rid Of It People, Declutter Your Life!

UNITED STATES—Clutter, clutter people, we talk about it all the time and I’m realizing once you get things organized and in order, it just makes your life so much easier. This past week I did a massive and I mean massive overhaul of the basement. There were things in the furnace room, the laundry room, the closets, and just...

Take A Risk When It Comes To Life

UNITED STATES—If there is anything that I am learning about life as I get older it is that things don’t always go your way in life. You’re told that if you work hard you’ll always see the results you want and I used to think that, but I don’t. Sometimes you can be the hardest worker in the world...
