My life got hit by another hurricane. Actually, it's probably still the same one and these are the outer bands of the longest lasting hurricane ever! I find myself feeling as though I'm spinning out of control a bit more like I'm stuck in the middle of a tornado. These mental natural disasters are killing … Continue reading Oxygen Mask
This year is a continuation of the past couple of years. I don't seem to get a break. I keep getting hit with wave after wave of desperation. I'm now in a tailspin trying to figure out how to pull up and level out this out of control plane called life. When my father first … Continue reading Wave after wave

I had what I thought was a cold for over a week before my husband finally caught it this past Saturday. By Monday night, he was questioning why I was calling it a cold.

Webinars have become my new form of downtime. I have watched them on almost any topic you can imagine. Personally, I think I've gained a lot from them.
