Reminiscing About The Florida Sunrise

It's dreary outside, my work is done for the day and I sit here thinking about all the sunrises I experienced when I was on the road.  My bed (in the van) is across the back.

Reflections From Solitary Confinement

I believe this is week 3 of our lockdown, quarantine, stay at home, shelter in place whatchamacallit orders. I've heard it called many things but I often (jokingly) call it Solitary Confinement.

Nikki, Cookie and I had just been to Petco. Pets are allowed in Petco so we took Cookie inside. He went into… Continue reading 2 Years Ago Today – Living Life With No Regrets

I don't make official resolutions but I do narrow down what I want to focus on in the upcoming year. Focus #1 - Health My Multiple Chemical… Continue reading 2020 New Year’s Resolutions – Or Not!?

December Is Half Over Already!? Exhaustion Sets In

December is half over already and I really have no clue where the first half of it went. I've been exhausted lately and it's not easy taking care of Dad when I feel like I can't take another step (no kidding - it's that bad!). I can barely get my booty out of bed in… Continue reading December Is Half Over Already!? Exhaustion Sets In
