Pet Peeve Paradigm Shift


Coffee’s gone before cereal


Tears in pieces


Fitbit lies to me


“Sit and talk to me,” he says, then he texts.

Paradigm shift!


I get to have coffee and cereal!


Paper towels sure save laundry.


Is technology amazing, or what?


How nice it is to keep in touch with those we love.

What are your pet peeves? What is the paradigm shift you need to see them as blessings?

Share if you dare!


Back on Track II

Version 2

It is far easier to get off track, than to get back on. It can be difficult and messy. It’s especially frustrating because I was doing so good before I got derailed. I struggle having grace for myself when I can’t seem to get it right. Yet, I know that if I persevere, I will get there. It is a matter establishing and maintaining routine.

And so, I persevere …

How do you attack your goals?

Hang in there, Fellow Track Jumpers!

Eagle Summit Ranch Run

Today was a day of excuses.

I was too tired. My knee hurt.

The dog’s feelings will be hurt if I go without her, again.

(Okay, so that last one is pretty desperate.)

The real reason I ended up going was to get the shirt.

(sigh) Material Girl.

But … I was also curious.

They do work with our Wounded Warriors

and I was pleased to be part of the fund raiser.

It was a small event,

the first of an annual run,

a worthy run.

As you can see, it is

age friendly and dog friendly!

1st Annual Eagle Summit Ranch Run

The highlight of my day was that

I ended up crossing the finish line with a vet who had benefitted from this program.

He and his wife were giving back by working with other couples

who struggle reconnecting after the vet’s return.

It was an honor to hear even a tiny part of his story.

I am so glad I did not give in to my excuses

– and next year the dog goes with!
