Lemons

Life has been kind of sour for us this year, but this post isn't about a metaphor. Aldi's had a 2 pound bag of lemons for only .99! I don't like lemons or lemonade or really anything that tastes like lemons. It's a side effect of having to use lemon scented cleaning products my whole…

Summer Bucket List

I'M SO EXCITED THAT IT'S SUMMER!!! I like being warm. I was born in August. Summer is my season. Even when I complain about being too hot. I love it. So, there should be no shock that I put together my own summer bucket list. Like the spring one, I'll post my progress as I…

Mom’s Summer Reading List

Every summer I'm the good mom. I drag my kids down to the library, sign them up for the summer reading program, and hold them accountable for it. But I'm not the good mom because during all the shuffle of everyday life, they never actually see me read. Like a physical, page-turning book. They see…

Speed Limit of Life

"When we opened the speed limit was 100 and you all ran around going 250". I paraphrased that, but that's pretty much what my boss's boss's boss said to all of us on the last day of the semester. The older supervisors got offended and started defending themselves and raising their voices, but geez he…

Priorities

This past week at work has been hard. I've been called in early, required to work late, worked off the clock, been yelled at for something that had nothing to do with me, and found out that there are non-supervisors that get paid more than me. I'm tired, unhappy, and it's getting in the way…

Insecurities

I'm not a good Christian. I wasn't raised in a Christian household. I don't pray before I eat. I swear.....a lot. I haven't read the Bible in it's entirety because some of it is boring. I stopped going to church because I found the people to be fake. Christian music is ear rape to me.…

Stress Faced

So remember when I dedicated this year to not being so high-strung? Well, work started back up. As a supervisor, I had to work extra hours to get our new building and new stores up and running. That means I had to work day shift. WITH THE DAY SHIFT SUPERVISORS! That's something that I now know…
