Money Always Buys Happiness

(This is a reblog of my 7th blog, but with people eagerly anticipating more stimulus money, and with all of the excitement surrounding the lotteries this week, I thought it would be a good time to reblog it.) I grew up always hearing that “money can’t buy happiness,” and I would hear that from peopleContinue reading “Money Always Buys Happiness”

Biden/Harris fears

So, we have a new government in power now, and I know there’s a lot of optimism swirling around something like that, but I must confess I have my doubts and fears as to whether I will be able to get accustomed to a new way of doing things. Joe Biden seems to be tryingContinue reading “Biden/Harris fears”


4000. Four thousand. FOUR THOUSAND. I’ve done a blog in the past where I talked about how amazed I was about the number of people dying from Covid-19, but this number is really hard to wrap my brain around. 4000 people dying in 24 hours. It’s just crazy. When this all started last Spring, andContinue reading “4000”

Men of Character

The great Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that “men of character are the conscience of the society to which they belong….(i)mpure men consider life as it is reflected in opinions, events and persons. They cannot see the action until it is done. Yet its moral element preexisted in the actor, and its quality as right orContinue reading “Men of Character”

Capitol Crazies

Yesterday morning I was trying to figure out what kind of blog I was going to write for the day, and I procrastinated until the afternoon. I’m glad I did, because then the craziness at the Capitol happened, and consequently decided my blog topic for me. So, for my blog, I’m going to tie inContinue reading “Capitol Crazies”


Happy New Year everyone! Today, I’m going to talk about one of my New Year’s goals, and that is to write 3 blogs a week every week for the entire year. 156 blogs! 156 blogs sounds like a big task, but luckily I’ve been blessed with a great education and lots of weird experiences fromContinue reading “156”

2020 is over…Hooray!

This year, we decided not to do a Christmas card. Instead we sent out a New Year’s Eve card that said “2020 is over, Hooray!” We’re so glad this year is over, but I kind of hate to start the new year with such a bad opinion of the last, so this morning I googled,Continue reading “2020 is over…Hooray!”

Super nurses

On Sunday afternoon I went to a memorial chapel for someone that died right before Christmas. I’ve always felt uncomfortable dealing with death and the loved ones left behind, and especially at Christmastime. I felt awkward and nervous and I’m ashamed to say that I was so relieved once I was out of there. ButContinue reading “Super nurses”

You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s Coronagone

We have had to give up a lot of normalcy this year, but now we are entering the season where I really feel the loss. It’s no secret that emotions run higher at Christmas, so when things are going great, they’re really going great, and when problems arise at Christmas the sinking feeling is thatContinue reading “You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s Coronagone”
