Jury Duty?

I’ve never done Jury Duty. This is like the 3rd time I’ve gotten a notice. I’m thankful. I’m in Group 8, which means most likely not having to do anything, but sheesh.

I’m going to be very thankful for my Kindle, because that is most likely going to be what I’ll be doing, while I’m waiting, if I do have to go in.

Ugh, I really don’t want to, though!

I’m a Failure (but I’m trying)

So, I had planned to blog daily in June. And May. And April. Yeah, I haven’t succeeded at that at all. Work has been crazy. For a while, we were down a cashier and a dishwasher. Now, We’re not down anyone!! My daughter was hired on as the cashier, and a sweetheart was hired for the dishwasher. Both of them are doing pretty good. They both finished off their first week today. I’m ready to see how that all works out!

Life has been pretty hectic too. Madison graduated from high school in May. She then proceeded to turn 18 this month (on the 20th, aka Father’s Day). Monday, she started her first ever job, as I mentioned above. First everything. First job. First interview. First drug test. First (and second) TB test.First orientation. First FULL-TIME job! This kid is rocking this adult life already!
Ethan turned 16 in March and did driver’s ed this summer. He just has to do the driving part with the DMV folks next month, and he’s good to go. So glad that’s one less thing that we have to worry about.

In March, I’d bought a new computer. That got zapped within 60 days, and the return policy for Sam’s is 90 days, so we took advantage of that. So, I have another new computer that still doesn’t have all the apps and programs installed. Oh well.

Right now I’m updating from a Kindle Fire and a Bluetooth keyboard. I guess I won’t be able to make any excuses when it comes to getting things done. I’m hoping, since Office is now available on them that I’ll be able to use it for NaNoWriMo this year, since my laptop isn’t lasting, battery-wise.

Welcome to January

So, I completely failed on the daily blogging. At like day 3 or 4.

No excuses. I just didn’t feel like opening any device to upload a post.

Heck, I’m not even sure I want to do it right now.

My schedule at work is all up in the air after Saturday, and I’m not a fan of that. I’m also really not a fan of getting used to a schedule, and knowing that it’s going to be changed. Which is will be.

The rest of January should be pretty quiet. February is going to be the month of insanity!

Trying to Eat Healthier


I’m trying to make healthier, smarter choices. Just small ones here and there (as I sit here, nomming on some Pumpkin Pie KitKats ). Each morning, especially before work, I make sure I have myself a shake. I switched to non-lactose containing milks (Fairlife ultra-processed or almondmilk), and I’ve noticed a HUGE change in how my body is digesting! Yay for that win against IBS!

Trying Something New

I did a little training about growing my Instagram story following. Organically. Not like buying them, or scamming, or anything. But little things you can do to change things up.

I’m excited to see how it works! I’ll be putting it to use starting tomorrow, though I did play around with it some tonight afterwards.

Today was a bit of a lazy day. Like I slept half the day because my body said sleep. Like, I was walking and getting dizzy, and had to sit. Sitting led to laying down, which led to sleeping. Stupid sinuses!
