The Joy of Throwing Things Out!

For the past few years I’ve seen people doing this “40 bags in 40 days” challenge during Lent. I always found it intriguing but it seemed impossible. Get rid of one bag of stuff every day for FORTY days?! Insanity! I won’t have anything left. This year I decided to try it though. Im aContinue reading “The Joy of Throwing Things Out!”

We Have Met The Enemy…

“We have met the enemy and they are us!” This phrase was first used in its current form by Walt Kelly to describe the War in Vietnam.

Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome!

“Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome!” This phrase means oh so much to me. It has become my mantra.
