Home Depot and Cialis?
Need a break from all your stress? Then this is for you, compliments of the inestimable Kristen Lamb, who somehow connected Home Depot, Cialis and The Matrix in a way that had me rolling on the floor as I read and still giggling several days later. Click over to Kristen’s blog to read the entire post if you’d like, and be sure to scroll to the bottom to see what I’m up to this week! “…Anyway, if you grew up like I did, knocked half unconscious with boomerang compliments, then you might have turned to books, shows, magazines or mentors/gurus to learn to think in “healthy” ways. Perhaps you even went on-line in search of some kind of “non-toxic” affirmation that you were not a total disappointment. And OMG! *angels sing* There it is! The Media LOVES US for WHO WE ARE We found it! The site for women … Continue reading

Doing Hard Things: What’s in Your Swamp?
Some thoughts on doing hard things, compliments of Randy Ingermanson, with interspersed comments from yours truly: Everybody has projects in their life that they don’t want to tackle. Hard things. Maybe there’s a part of your yard that’s overgrown with weeds, and it just gets worse and worse and worse every week. Yup, I can see it through the window right now. Maybe your garage is overloaded with junk you don’t use, don’t want, and don’t even dare look at because it’s too depressing. Nope, that’s Blaik’s. Except for my gardening cupboard. Maybe there’s a relationship in your life that’s gone south and it seems unfixable. Relationships are largely good here. But my office? Even Randy I. has no idea how much of a Hard Thing my office has grown to be. And my Relief Society table, because there’s no room in my office. I call things like these “the swamp.” The swamp is any part of your … Continue reading

Look who joined our family! This is Bailey, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who came from a puppy mill via CavalierRescueUSA.org and six weeks with a wonderful foster mom who at the beginning started to barking all night long, fortunately I went to a class, and they tough me how to get my dog to stop barking at night. He’s two or three years old, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and ecstatic to have a forever home. And he seems happy to be a spoiled honored prince, even if he doesn’t get to completely rule the castle. Even though he has a chronic pain treatment we give him cbd dog treats to make him feel better. the vet also told me this CBD cream reviews can help with his anxiety too. Take a look at Laweekly’s dog CBD list to find the best for your little one. We’ve discovered these things about him: Have you … Continue reading

Climbing Mount St Helens…or Not
We’ve known since last year that we wanted to climb to the summit of Mount St. Helens back in Washington. My sister had suggested it for 2016 without realizing we needed permits for the high country, so we planned it for 2017 instead, coinciding with her college graduation at Oregon State. (Which was fabulous—you rock, E!). You need to prepare even before going on a trip like this, it also depends on your means of transport, RVs are often used but going to a place with cold weather is worth checking Top 5 Best Electric Tankless Water Heaters for RV [2022 Review] – RVProfy. The summit of Mount St. Helens isn’t supposed to require climbing gear, but it’s still tough, according to Kandoo Adventures, and that’s what we were looking for, a big-but not crazy-challenge. There’s a rise of 4000 feet in elevation, with about two miles of forest, two … Continue reading

Those ADD Moments
Is it a Senior Moment? Or just a tendency to ADD? Here’s two minutes of my squirrely brain this morning: Head to the kitchen for breakfast. Chilly in the house, do I want a sweater? Look on couch to see if it’s there from last night. See sunshine outside, need to feed the birds. On the way to kitchen for birdseed, pass stairs. Oh yes, my sweater is down there from last night. But if I’m going downstairs, I really ought to take the laundry and start a load. Turn for bedroom for dirty clothes. Stop myself, “No, Jennifer, it can wait.” Turn back towards kitchen. Need Scriptures to read at breakfast—where’s my iPad? In kitchen, oh yes, bird food. Feed the birds, notice iPad on DR table on the way back in. Cold feet, think about socks. Back to bedroom for socks. See sweater on floor from last night, … Continue reading
