Public Restrooms

I hate public restrooms. Public restrooms should be avoided at all cost. (Well, almost, all cost.) Let’s just take a look at the definition of the word: Public: 1 open to or shared by all the people of an area or country 2 done, perceived, or existing in open view Restroom: a room containing a…

Cell Phones and Selfies

Ok,  this is very embarrassing for me but I’ll come clean and confess: “I have used a Selfie Stick”. “There, I said it, are you happy?”  If you are like me, you will probably have to take a few moments to Google “Selfie Stick” to make sure you know what I’m talking about.  For those not…

Re-gifting Etiquette

PS, if it’s not too much trouble, I would like…

(See what I did there?) This could possibly be classified as a lame joke. Lets…


“I’m Thankful For…”

“My family” “Food” “My sister” “Jesus” “My house” “Football!” Just some of the things that the kids shared they were thankful for during our Thanksgiving party at Kid’s Club this week.  It was eye-opening for me to hear these kids mention some things that I often take for granted.  It is good that we have one day…

The Squeaky Wheel

Have you ever felt like every single time you get a cart at a store it is the one that has a bad squeak?  Or maybe it has a severe flat spot on one of the wheels and it goes “bumpbumpbumpbumpbump” as you wander throughout the store.  I have on occasion, found a cart that…

“Don’t touch my knob!”

So, have you ever wondered what really goes on at an ISP headquarters?  I have, because I am currently experiencing some issues with my connection, and I am happy to inform you that I have spent some time looking into this matter and can now divulge the fruits of my labors.  If you remember correctly, my research…

Fall is here.

This time of year is always a bittersweet time for me. On one hand you have the beauty of all the autumn color and the cooling off after a normally hot late summer, but on the other hand you realize that it is time to say goodbye to summer and winter will be here soon.
