Some Days

Some days I just don't want to be strong any more.
Some days I don't feel like "sucking it up."
Some days I just don't want to get on with daily life.

Some days I would just rather throw my hands up in the air ...
I GIVE.

Today is one of those days.

The morning started off "normal" - whatever that is ...
The kids got ready for school.
Showered.
Breakfast.
Homework.
Lunches made.
I got ready for work.
Stopped by the school for PTO business.
Got to work to "do my thing."
Chatted with co-workers.
Made some entries.
Papers all over my desk.

Then I received a phone call.
It started off with the dreaded statement, "I'm sorry to tell you this Ms. Gage ..."

The data on my external hard drive (that fell on the concrete garage floor last week) is unrecoverable.

Not.One.Single.Thing. can be recovered.

I think that is just crap.
And now I'm done adulting for the day.

Some days .......

Moments are memories

Every moment we experience life is a memory created.


We've been blessed this past month to create a bunch of memories with people we love.


Even though we were away from home for a few days, there were others thinking of us and missing us. What an amazing feeling!



Remember to document your life. Make memories and give yourself the chance to recall them later in life.  Write down your thoughts - your family wants to know about you AND it helps them learn about themselves!





Even those old grocery lists bring back some great memories.

It's a brand new year!

Happy New Year!!!!

Yes ... we are well into the year of 2016, and I'm just now posting about the new year.  There is no better time than the present!  Let's start now.




We finally have some sun in the lower west side of the PNW.  Yahoo!!!

Every new year is a brand new start - an opportunity to start new things and refresh daily life.  Update the thoughts going through your mind.  Revamp your diet if you're so inclined!  Give yourself a reason to make a positive change.

The truth is that we don't need the calendar to tell us when it's time to start something.

The time is now.

THERE ARE SEVEN DAYS IN A WEEK.
SOMEDAY IS NOT ONE OF THEM.
