Time warp

I really can’t explain it…

I don’t have a clue where all the time has gone.

It’s August. 

I think it was still spring the last time I posted….


I need to write. To catch you up. To empty my thoughts.  To straighten some things out.

Somehow all my time has been sucked up. So has my energy.  And some days I think my sanity. 😉

That there is reason enough for my need to write.

So I will… just not right now.

Soon though, I promise.

For now, it’s time to let the storms take me to dreamland. 

Sweet dreams my friends.

As always,

The Energizer Bunny…


This is who I’d liken myself to recently.

Running here, there & everywhere these days… from errands to commitments to a concert to dinner with a friend to pulling some incredibly long days…  only one day this week did I crawl into bed before 1:00 AM.

Some of the hecticness is for fun; some outta responsibilities & duty; some due to my procrastinating; and some just because.

Some tell me I overextend myself; some say I need to prioritize; some say I should practice using the word “no.”

Those who know me best know I generally function very well under pressure. At times I think I thrive on stress. Honestly,  sometimes I even create more stress for myself without even realizing it… it just happens to be a big part of who I am.

Some of my best papers written were finished at 4 AM.

Some of my best crafty projects weren’t finished until 2 hours before it’s to be given as a gift. 

Some of my most productive days extend through the evening into the weeeeeee hours of the morning.

This is how I’ve always been for as long as i can remember.

I don’t necessarily foresee this changing in the near future either. I have good intentions; I just end up scheduling too many things in one week or let a few too many deadlines approach too quickly without paying much mind to them.

It all gets done eventually…who needs sleep anyways?!?! 😉

This girl does…. just doesn’t happen all the time. On the days where I’m running on empty, I remind myself of all I’ve accomplished just under the wire.

Everything will get finished ; I will have time to just chill out & “veg” one day.

Even if it’s not until the cows come home or when pigs fly, someday I’ll get there!

Until then I’ll just keep going & going until the battery wears out…

I just wish that I looked as cool & chill as the ever going, somewhat annoying Energizer Bunny… cool shades & all.

Such as my day!

Not gonna bore ya with all the details,  but it’s been a LONG two days.

In reality though, when putting things into perspective with all that is going on in the world today, my day wasn’t so bad.

I’m alive & breathing with a roof over my head.

So instead of venting & babbling about my day, I’m gonna leave it at this…


All is good in my neighborhood …

How about you? How was your day?

A little bit of chocolate…

When you need a little pick me up…

…A little bit of Chocolate goes a long way.

A little bit of chocolate makes just about anything and everything better.  🙂 Admit it, you’ve been there one time or another!

Today was just one of those days that I needed some chocolate.  Didn’t much matter what kind…Dark, milk, candy bar or chocolate chips.  I wanted chocolate.



Yummy, chocolate-y, minty, goodness

Thankfully, with valentine’s day being this week and me working in a school, I was showered with little bits of chocolate goodness from the kiddos.  Andes candies, giant Hershey Kisses, chocolates with caramel.  Plus, there was left over chocolate chip cookie cake sitting in the kitchen at work.  Mom made homemade gobs for our sisters/mom meal.  Lots of chocolate to be had.

Today, I had a choice to make… WHAT KIND OF CHOCOLATE DID I WANT TO EAT???

The winner was…. Andes Candies. 

Something about the creamy milk chocolate and the refreshing but not overpowering minty taste just screamed to me today. The minty, chocolate-y goodness was just what the Doctor ordered for this middle of the week, hectic, busy, emotionally draining, stressful, is it Friday yet kinda Wednesday.

It’s a good thing I didn’t bring the chocolate home… I could be sitting here eating more as I type.  That could be a good or bad thing, depending upon how you look at it… For me, it’s best just not to have it around, if you know what I’m saying. 😉

What’s your chocolate treat of choice?  I’ve got too many to list!  Kit Kats come close to the top of the list though…Just sayin’…
