I’m Not Ready for This

Tomorrow is April 1. That means tomorrow begins the A to Z Challenge. I am truly unprepared for this thing. I said I would be writing some kind of short fiction every day based on random words beginning with each day's appropriate letter. Thus far, I've received words from friends and family for A through … Continue reading I’m Not Ready for This

No Movie Today…

This week's movie is supposed to be The Third Man. But I haven't watched it yet. And I'm not in the mood to watch it yet. I don't know what the deal is. It's like I'm in a funk today. I'm stressed out about work. I'm anxious over a potential change that I'd kind of … Continue reading No Movie Today…

Pain

What’s your response when someone you love is hurting? The pain I’m referring to isn’t a physical one. It’s not as if you just saw your best friend trip over their own feet and skin their knee. If it were me watching that happen, there’s a good chance I’d laugh. Sure, I’d ask if they … Continue reading Pain

No Worries

Most people I know worry more than I do. I’m generally not a worrier. In fact, when problems come along, I probably don’t worry enough about them. But maybe that’s a good thing. It’s not that I don’t get stressed out over stuff. If you’ve been reading this blog for just about any length of … Continue reading No Worries

That Line from Office Space

I always feel funny starting off a blog post by saying, "Can I be honest?" Of course I can be honest. It's my blog. I could lie if I wanted to and no one would know the difference. But I'm not gonna lie. I'm going to admit that I'm pretty sure I'm dealing with a … Continue reading That Line from Office Space

These Dreams

I've been having some memorable and vivid dreams lately. Now, I have a tendency to go through phases in my sleep where I'll go a month or so not remembering any of my dreams. And then I'll have a week where I have one or two dreams per night that I can very easily recall. … Continue reading These Dreams

Question of the Week #139

Would you rather spend a month on vacation with your parents or put in overtime at your current job for four weeks without extra compensation? I'm not sure how to answer this question. I mean, I love my job. So if I were asked to do extra work out of the kindness of my heart, … Continue reading Question of the Week #139

His Eye Is On the Sparrow

I'm not really sure why I act surprised when God comes through and provides for my needs when all seems lost. It's happened time and again. Maybe it's in my nature to doubt. I know it's my nature to try and rely on myself first, even though I know I should go to Him first. … Continue reading His Eye Is On the Sparrow

Eureka

Molly stepped into the warmth of her bathtub and prepared for a long evening of allowing her stress to soak away. Her hope was to lean back, let the scented candles do their thing, and eventually throw her day out with the bath water. With her roommate out of town for the week, she knew … Continue reading Eureka

A Road Rage Rant

I drive a lot. Mostly to and from work. Believe me, that's more than enough. They say the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Well, the closest thing I can find to a straight line is one of the curviest roads that you can find in this part of Virginia. See, it's … Continue reading A Road Rage Rant
