Days gone by…

It’s 8AM and the alarm is blaring
but hear it I do not
My eyes blink open and are staring
it is now 10 o’clock
Hardly time to brush the dust
from my sleepy eyes
In an hour leave I must
Let’s go, get up, arise!
Squeeze my pants over the buns
no time for a pose
Can’t wear sneakers so grab the ones
that hurt my pinky toes!
Wash face, brush teeth, ponytail
pet cat, and kiss my beau.
Grab my lunch and hit the trail
no time for moving slow
Drive in traffic, honk at cars
scream that’s not a LANE!
Frustrations got me seeing stars
driving is a pain
Get to work and circle block
until a space I find
Must punch in by 1 o’clock
some cuss words cross my mind
They want books, staplers, computers
and rooms to study in
I also point them to the tutors
and do it all with a grin
The printers either have a jam
or paper they are out
They open and close them with a BAM!
I stare over with a pout
Counting five, six, seven, eight
hours do go by
Make sure all the books are straight
Maybe tomorrow I’ll have Thai
Punch out the day is finally done
Quick run to the car!
Pass the others one-by-one
I can’t wait to take off this bra!
Park and open up the door
Shoes come off fast
Fall into the arms of my amour
Good to be home at last!
Three weeks flew by I forgot to blog
Give up I thought I must
Forget it! No! Push away the smog
In my readers I must trust

The guest list debate…

The guest list debate…

Planning a wedding is more stressful than I thought it would be. I decided to hold the ceremony at a destination and the reception back home so I am having guest list stress. I wasn’t planning on inviting everyone out to the destination due to the added cost of travel and hotel. I figured it would be our immediate families, wedding party, and best friends. We then plan on showing the video of the ceremony as part of the reception dinner about two weeks later. The venue has already been picked and deposit placed but I find myself pulling my hair out over the invites.

This is part of my fear complex. I am afraid of offending people when there is no intention to do so. It is a money issue more than anything. If thought everyone would come out to the destination ceremony I would say screw the second party but that isn’t reality. I am in love with the venue but I know not everyone can attend. Yet I want to be able to include everyone so splitting the wedding into two separate parts seemed like the best option (and surprising more affordable… the venue was a great deal).

I am seeking advice on how to deal with guest lists!

Vacation break

Vacation break

I have emerged from my vacation realizing that I need to seriously stop thinking I can do these blogging challenges. Let’s face it I set myself up to fail every single time. Problem is that I feel these challenges stunt my ability to blog. I stress myself out trying to keep on schedule and I feel as though I’m forcing out posts just to satisfy the challenge. I feel like I haven’t written anything all that great recently so I’m going to stop forcing challenges and just blog with the flow. My brain just doesn’t want to work that way. I like to be all over the place. It makes me interesting! Least I think so. 

Anyway I am finally able to take some time to myself and jot down a few words for you. I spent last week on our annual trip to Las Vegas and then went for a road trip to the Grand Canyon.  I had a lot more work to do this time around in Vegas so there are not many pictures but I will write on that later. 

Y’all let me tell you if you haven’t been try try try to get to the Grand Canyon. It is absolutely breathtaking. I took soooo many photos because the beauty of it keeps changing with each viewing location, passing cloud, and movement of the sun across the sky. I never in my life felt so small and being a bigger girl that is a rarity. Normally I feel extra big… especially on anything transportation related.

We spent two days viewing as much of the Canyon as possible. We saw so much of it and yet nothing at all. It is that big! My goal or wish is that someday I can get myself in enough shape to actually hike down into the Canyon. Going down is the easy part it is the upward hike that I am most concerned about!


Mother Nature is so beautiful and amazing. She is truly the master sculpture and deserves our respect.

Below is just a small sampling of the pictures that I took.
