Why I Keep The Calendar Pages Part #2

A couple of months ago I shared with you how I couldn’t let go of three years of pages from my You Are A Badass page a day calendars.

As I read through my calendar pages I keep them because I feel inspired.

They make me think. I get ideas. I see opportunities.

I feel powerful and feel I can achieve my dreams.

The pages speak to me.

They make my heart happy.

As I read through the pages I keep what motivates me and let go of the rest.

When I need motivation I can grab the pile and read what speaks to me.

This is why I keep them.

Fun Friday:  Start The Day With Love

This morning I noticed a heart on my bar of soap.

I wondered what would happen if people started their day with love?

Love for themselves.  Their jobs.  The planet.  Strangers.

I know I always don’t.  I sometimes wake up angry or sad or overwhelmed.

I’m getting better at this since we rescued Scooby.  He is full of love all day long.  His tail is always wagging and he’s always willing to give kisses.

He is love. That’s one of the nicknames I call him.


Instead of getting up right away Scooby and I have Mommy Puppy time.  I pet him as he lies on my belly and looks out the window

Its teaching me to relax and not rush to get up. To breathe and just be in the moment. To pet Scooby and give him some extra love.

Isn’t it something when soap reminds you to love more?

My higher power speaks in mysterious ways.

Fun Friday: Open For Business

I am officially open for business!


I’ve been handing out flyers and talking to people about my new side hustle.

I started a business page on facebook and posted once. The name of my page is Lighten Your Load Organizing. If you get a chance checkout my page and let me know what you think.

I don’t have any customers yet but I’m excited to see where this road leads.

What an awesome way to start 2023!

Fall Trees At The Campgroumd

Here are a couple of pics of the trees changing color at the campground.

I was too lazy to get out of my truck. I was too tired after raking leaves and picking up branches. The guys cut down five trees that were on our site, my brother’s site and a neighbor’s site.

Here’s 3 more pics.

I’m feeling better and it was nice to get out in the fresh air and burn some calories.

Kindness Month

I know I still have four days left of kindness month, but I’m not going to finish because I’m sick.

I feel better today but I’ve had this crap for the last week or so.  It feels like a head cold and allergies all in one.

I’m going to take a break for awhile.

I’ll let you know what I have learned when I get back in a week or two

Day 27 of Kindness Month: You Go Girl!

Rumor has it that on Monday a coordinator and his subordinate were fired.


Someone caught them having sex in the janitors closet.

Yes really.

I know it’s not a good thing. It never is a good thing.

But I’m looking at it from this perspective:

Since menopause I lost my desire for sex. My brain no longer talks to my vagina like it used to. I try, but….

For that 50 year old women to have the drive to be that turned to by her new boyfriend that she can’t wait…

I’m jealous.

Now I realize that this is what played out in my brain. It may not be what truly happened.

I can’t tell you the last time I felt like that

Kudos to all of you menopausal women out there who still have the desire to get it on.

Day 30 of Kindness Month: Being Kind To Myself

On the last day of kindness month I am being kind to myself.

I went to acupuncture, shopped a little bit and now I am having lunch in this cute little restaurant I love.

I am also thinking about what I learned about myself and being kind this month.

It’s been a interesting month. I’ve learned a lot.

I’ll share this in a future post.

I can’t belive its almost October!
