“What’s the Word?” Wednesday: December 26, 2012

The holidays are almost over. That mad rush to get from A to Z while making everyone happy and doubling up on the social calendar. It’s time to wind down from all the excitement and regroup with some personal R&R. But something great is just around the corner.

We made it past the predicted Mayan apocalypse. The New Year is almost here.

Can you feel it?

It’s called Hope.

Some expectations I had for this week have been postponed. That’s not the same as canceled. Disappointment is not a disaster.

In the last year or so I’ve seen in hindsight … read the rest. . .

“What’s the Word?” Wednesday: December 12, 2012

My Word this week is “Better”. I opted to trade in my frustrations and instead look for ways to make things Better.

I can’t change other people: their actions, reactions, lack of action… but I can take what’s at my control and manage my life Better. Sometimes people need a nudge in the right direction… or a push out the door.

I can’t be sad when things don’t work out. If there’s one thing I’ve learned lately, it’s that things work out with or without my interference. The best that I can do is to make any situation Better.

I love “What’s the Word?” Wednesdays. It’s the chance to share with other Bloggers and blog readers all ’round the world. Okay, so my little outreach doesn’t quite get to Siberia (that I know of), but it does help me keep in touch with other Blogs I respect.

So this week, I’m running down a list of links to the Blogs I love most. Check them out! There’s Family and Mommy Blogs. Food Blogs. College Blogs. Poetry Blogs. A variety of posts for a variety of reading.

“What’s the Word?” Wednesday: November 21, 2012

I cannot tell a lie: I’m glad this is the easy post. I need the break. What with all the goings-on around here lately, extra house cleaning and holiday prepping… I welcome the break.

I still have four or more giveaways to do in the next two weeks, and before the week’s end I’m making my Holiday Doo Dads.

I’m going through Mission Inn withdrawals and trying to schedule several day trips there with friends between now and New Year’s. I am absolutely craving a Casey’s Cupcake and Coffee.

Now that I’m working again, a spring weekend is at … read the rest. . .

“What’s the Word?” Wednesday: November 14, 2012

We’re one day away from being halfway through November. It’s been a busy first two weeks around here! I’ve been baring my soul, earning my keep, and all things in between. Right now I’m fighting a cold with the help of vinegar and Vicks (no, not together!).

Thanksgiving comes early this year. Does that mean we have an extra week in the holiday season? I hope so! I’m so ready to get this Party started!

Let’s make this week’s “What’s the Word?” more interactive. For every post you link up, leave a question in the comments. Something you’ve always wanted … read the rest. . .
