It’s easily been 2 decades since I colored my hair last. I remember my dad saying, ” Sure, you can dye your hair if you want to but rebelling by imitating a stereotype isn’t really being unique is it?” In my teens I definitely looked like a few stereotypes and quite often “rebelled” by following a path someone had already laid before me such as attempting to be unique by dying my hair with my friends. ^_^Read more

Like most of the people we know, we have been blessed to only have a couple noteworthy points of impact during this pandemic (so far). The primary impact has really been social. Not being able to hang out in groups has changed our routine greatly. The second highest impact has been the availability of groceries. We’ve been blessed to not have been impacted financially by this.Read more
Time to schedule some betterment! In 2020 I am setting a resolution to…
Not drink alcohol
Since I quit smoking in 2019 I figured it would be advantageous for my health not drink in 2020. This is pretty big because I easily drank beer five days a week in 2019.
Run over 1,020 Kilometers
I managed to run over 1,250 kilometers in 2019 and that took quite an effort that I want to keep up! Follow me on MapMyFitness.
Read at least 10 books
I wasn’t counting the number of books I read in 2019 but I don’t think I read 10. I tend to listen to audio books when I jog and I’m sure I listened to more than 10 but I’m not going to count my audible consumption as reading. ^_^ Follow my progress on GoodReads
This Christmas was perfect…
After 24 years of smoking and attempting to quit many many many times, I feel like I’ve finally quit for the last time! I don’t even remember when I quit but it had to have been more than a couple months ago and I no longer feel extremely compelled to find nicotine! I get an occasional light desire to smoke but it’s no longer hard to deal with.
Wow, I can hardly believe it, we’ve lived in Scottsdale Arizona for a year now, Maxine is over a year and a half and I haven’t posted once. Life happens fast. My blog missed 2018 entirely.
As my last post shows, Maxine was born July 15 2017. Not long after that, in October 2017, Z and I bought a Town home in Scottsdale, a Trolly ride from all the awesome stuff. We got moved in to our new home as 2017 came to a close.
Z and I have moved to Castaic, California! We were presented with an opportunity to check out sweet new digs in California so during the last week of April 2017 we packed up our apartment in Greeley and made the trek to California!
Weekends are always too short when you’re having fun! I had the pleasure of hanging out in Steamboat Springs for the first time just this last weekend. Five of us got together to celebrate 3 of our birthdays and enjoy the wonderful town of Steamboat springs. Read more
