Dead Bees

I’ve been doing a lot of reading on writing lately. A lot of reading – not writing. As I read, the one thing that keeps playing in my head over and over is to be a writer, you MUST WRITE and I don’t write enough. I’m a procrastinator. Whether it’s out of laziness or just …

Habit Paralyzation

A few weeks back when I was blog reading about “changing my path in life” – well let’s be honest more like reading about depression and self-worth… I started thinking more about the HOW part. HOW did I lose 30lbs doing the Body for Life program 12 years ago? HOW did I go to the …

My dog is a candy ass

I’ve been thinking about starting to run with Rogue on a regular basis. I’m not sure about running through my town with her because of the crazy dogs that come out of their backyards and surprise you… but when I’m running the prairie path trail having her along would be nice for sure. So on …
