Week Three of Project Happy

I have to admit that this week has been a struggle. For over a week I have been feeling really anxious and not sure why.  I guess people with generalized anxiety disorder don’t really need an exact reason to feel anxious – it just happens. The weather has also been horrible.  I have been stuck…

Queen of Procrastination

If it weren’t for the last minute, I wouldn’t get anything done. Author Unknown You know that old saying, “never put off til tomorrow what can do today?” I totally do not live by it. My days are filled with, “oh, I can do that tomorrow.” But what if tomorrow never comes? (Gosh, I am…

Minimize Monday: Donations

Mommy Moment started a new weekly feature called Minimize Monday. I decided to take her up on her challenge and join her in getting rid of some of the clutter from my own house.  Shh, don’t tell my husband.  He doesn’t like it when I get rid of things we still can potentially use.

Week Two of Project Happy

I am into my second week of #ProjectHappy and am loving it.

Here is Week Two…

Give a snapshot of your life.  Married?  Kids?  Pets?  Career?  I am married and have…

The Slow Death of the Soap Opera

Today another television soap opera will say a final farewell. One Life to Live is airing it’s final act. And now I will be down to one, The Young and The Restless. Yes, I am one of those people – a soap opera addict.  I freely admit it.  I do enjoy my “stories.” I started…

In Need of a Morning Routine

Lately I have been thinking that I need a structured morning routine. For the past couple of years my morning routine consist of:   1.  Wake up around 7 am  2.  Get Little Man out of his crib and Big Boy out of his room (if he isn’t already up)  3.  Feed kids breakfast  4….

Week One of Project Happy

I did not make any New Year’s Resolutions this year.  See Welcome to 2012 & #Project Happy. Instead, I will be making a conscious effort to try to find a HAPPY moment in each day. Here was Week One of #ProjectHappy: 1) I bought Just Dance 3 for the Wii for myself.  But I will share…
