I am a Girl.

Please forgive the vent. . . I just couldn’t help myself today.

I think this often lately, yet it’s one of the subjects I try not to talk or write about. . .

It’s uncomfortable. . . Slightly embarrassing (not just for me, but sometimes for the reader/listener, I am sure). . . Kinda personal. . . Occasionally disgusting. . . Downright unpleasant. . .

Yet, I know I am not the only one who currently struggles with this — or has or will have to deal with it, for that matter.

It is a fact of life.

Keep scrolling or click away if you must. . . Or keep reading if you’re curious, I suppose — just don’t say I didn’t warn you.

The problem is the fact that I am a girl. . . That’s what my grandmother would call it, anyway. . .

It’s time for another Ultimate Coffee Date (UCD) — which I am going to attempt to combine with this week’s Ten Things of Thankful (TToT) post, so tell me how I do!! (I didn’t want to choose! Can you blame me?? 😉 )

(On a similar note, if you’re popping over from the Blog-tember Challenge, please know that today’s prompt, (A “currently…” post. Tell us what you’re loving, hating, reading, eating, etc.) will be done on Monday, because I already participate in a weekly “Currently.” link-up that I quite enjoy. SO, I hope y’all don’t mind me improvising to fit it all in!)

Now, COFFEE!! 😀 Instead of meeting up at a local coffee joint this month, why don’t you come join me at my place? I love Starbucks & all, but I am really  trying hard not to get completely hooked on an endless amount of coffee each day — & they’re just so darn expensive! Now, I don’t have a coffee maker, as mine broke a while back — BUT the handsome husband surprised me by coming home with a mini French-press this week! (Thankful #1) We’ll have to make our coffee a cup at a time (which will help us savor it that much more!) & I can whip up some of my delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies while we chat! 😉 Make yourself at home!

If we were having coffee today, I would tell you that Little RJ’s visit went quite well. (more…)

I don’t know about y’all, but it’s been a pretty fabulous week in my world. . .

Even though I had to say goodbye to my Little RJ on Monday (& won’t get to see him in person for another three months or so), I am still super grateful that I got the chance to spend some time with him this summer. (Thankful #1) (I don’t have that luxury with my oldest son — long story. Perhaps I will get into it another time. . . Then again, perhaps not. We’ll see.)

On Tuesday, I very nervously went to my first day of face-to-face classes at the local community college! It is a beautiful thing to be able to “start over” 15 years after leaving high school, huh? (Thankful #2) My mother fell ill the end of my junior year of high school & at the beginning of my senior year, I transferred to our district’s alternative high school, which screwed up any hopes I had of going straight to a four-year university after high school. My mother passed away half-way through my senior year & I barely graduated on time. I attempted classes at the local community college that next fall, but I had not allowed myself to properly grieve & wound up doing a hardship withdrawal. There’s been a stint at a career school (which I left around the time I found out I was pregnant & it was closed down just a couple of months later) & an attempt through a for-profit online school (but I was also single, working full-time with an infant at home & I over-extended myself). The third time’s a charm, right? This time around, I have the support of a loving (handsome) husband & the added confidence that comes with 15 years of some major ups & downs. It feels good. (more…)

I started a few weeks ago, then took an unscheduled hiatus. Thought I’d try again. . .

Take a little mental trip with me. . . A few random thoughts. . .
