2018 The Year Of….


The year of what? I have absolutely no idea. but I have been doing some thinking about some things. The biggest thing is social media. I hate it. I’m not a person who needs to know every moment of a person’s life. I’m not the girl who sits on Facebook 24/7. I have other things to do. Books to read. Life to live. Don’t get me wrong, I do things on Facebook. I have pages and groups I follow. It’s just not my life. I go in, I do what I want to do and then I leave.

I turned 47 a week ago. A couple weeks prior to Christmas I had reality hit me in the face and I sort of went into a mild depression. I realized that life passes us by. We get older. Others get older and we don’t give it another thought. Until something comes across a news feed and you’re like “wow when did that happen” or “They can’t be that old” or “They haven’t been married that long” but then you realize that yeah they are and they have because you, yourself, are pushing 50. Slam dunk right into reality.

So, as a result, I made a couple desicions. I’m going to go out more. I have friends. I need to spend time with them. I have a guy whom I’ve pushed away and pushed away, yet he’s still there. I want to dig deeper into that.

Life is for living.


So So Much Going On…

It seems as though I am always doing SOMETHING, never nothing.  Even though I am sitting here on my laptop for hours I’m not just playing around. I’m either doing blogs for my volunteer work, I’m writing or working on my ideas for NaNoWriMo, I’m working on graphic designs for my Built of Barnwood blog. Tweeting about BOB or working on the Facebook page for BOB. busy busy busy.  I talked to my dad Monday for his birthday and he said I make him tired just seeing all the things that come across Facebook. Truth is I make me tired too. It’s all a labor of love though. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t enjoy it. A lot of great things have come out of it all. I’ve met some amazing people.


It’s interesting how, as time goes on, social media changes. MSN groups and chat rooms started it all. Then came Myspace.  I remember there was a time when Myspace was the only thing out there and everyone in the world was addicted to it. Then came Facebook and everyone slowly migrated over to it. Myself  included.  It took a while to get use to and I remember starting my page, not liking it and sticking with myspace. Then as more and more people I knew were moving to Facebook I soon decided to conform and join the masses.  I haven’t been back to myspace since.  Then came Twitter.  Now I’m so addicted to Twitter it’s pathetic but Twitter is where I’ve had the most fun and met the greatest bunch of people and also where my sis Becka got me the ultimate follow. I won’t name names but I will say I’ve loved him since the 90’s and when I post pics of my guilty pleasures his will be in there..hint hint.

So while we’re talking about guilty pleasures. I’m also addicted to this little company I help promote called Built of Barnwood. I won’t say too much because I run a blog dedicated to it and it’s listed up on my blogs page. When I see an awesome “Nobody’s Perfect” cross on eBay, not only do I tweet it to promote it, I have GOT to bid on it.  I’m not sure if I need an intervention or not. I’ve got 3 so far. One I purchased without bidding and 2 I won bids on.  The latest was yesterday.  My bank account hates me. That is if a bank account can feel such an emotion, which I’m convinced it can.

Another guilty pleasure. Television. I have shows on pretty much every day of the week. Sundays are hard because 2 come on at the same time.  Now the difficulty comes by virtue of the fact (ha ha that was a quote) that 2 shows come on at the same time after I’ve gone to bed. So recording both on the DVR would lock up the TV so I’ve had to make a difficult choice. I chose TWD. There are only 2 shows I won’t, for any reason, make recording adjustments for. The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural. The world could be coming to an end, hell freezing over, the sky falling, you name it..I’m watching my vampires and my boys.

Guilty pleasure #1 and ultimate Twitter follower. Could you just die.
