Good GRIEF

Grief is a sneaky little sucker. It comes packing a rainbow of emotions ranging from neon bright to the darkest of dark. Grief is terribly uncomfortable. Any person who has experienced true grief I believe would agree and testify that it's a bizarre chain reaction experience.  Grief is weird because it gets all balled up… Continue reading Good GRIEF

Have friends will travel

Traveling with friends can be risky move! It's only my opinion but I think it takes a special kind of chemistry to travel with friends, and all of the little ones and teenagers in tow! But, thanks to Mr. Chicken Fry and his 27 year friendship with these guys...our family vacation hit the MARK! Once upon… Continue reading Have friends will travel

In your dreams

One morning last week I woke up mad.  Y'all, I was seriously angry, like hotter than a match mad, AT MY HUSBAND! (aka Mr. Chicken Fry) I had a dream.  In this dream, things between us weren't going so well.  I was very upset. In actuality, I was in our bed in what I call… Continue reading In your dreams

Time Out – Injury 101

Muscle pain or strains putting a cramp in your style? ME TOO! Muscle injuries and sore muscles are a real pain in the neck! I cringe and hesitate to admit this but the older I get the more aches and pains I have. For instance, last week I woke up, stepped out of bed and… Continue reading Time Out – Injury 101

Parasitic

There is nothing attractive about this word or what I'm about to share but I wanted to come clean. I have been a bit off of my blogging regimen due to some unforeseen issues that have put me down in the dumps. When I was in Mexico I apparently contracted some type of intestinal parasite,… Continue reading Parasitic

Mexico Gains

Mr. Chicken Fry nailed it.  He booked us five prime time nights in a familiar, close to our hearts, sunny beach destination....Cancun, Mexico.  We share a deep love for clear ocean water and white sand beaches and Cancun was a perfect hop skip and jump from Dallas, Texas. We were greeted and treated like royalty… Continue reading Mexico Gains

Bad Days

Even energetic sunshiny happy people have the occasional bad day. Because if you are a living breathing technology owning or running human you might experience "technical difficulties". And because sometimes we just can't remember the stinking password and because of that we might sit on the phone unable to do what we originally set out… Continue reading Bad Days

Getting out of town

Does anyone else feel like a crazed lunatic before leaving town? I was so much better at it in my mid twenties when less adulting and thought played into leaving the house for a week. Now it looks and feels a lot more like chaotic torture coupled with an endorphin rush that I have come… Continue reading Getting out of town
