Tuesday: Trials, Tribulations and Throwing in the Towel

2 Apr

“Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
Sold my soul and yeah, the truth hurts.”
― Marina Diamandis Marina and the Diamonds
Today was the last day of the first day of the rest of my life. I’ve been tossed a few curve balls, and I’m too tired or just not strong enough to keep ducking. I’ve been walloped too hard. So, I decided this would be my last day of blogging, sharing my ups and downs, and talking about the wonderful people who make this world amazing. I started blogging January 1, 2013 and haven’t missed a day. I’ve had almost 15,000 views and have made some interesting friends. But now, I’ve run out of things to say or things to be happy about.

I think it’s time to hang up my “pen”, as it were, throw in the towel, and thank you all for reading, commenting, and supporting me. So, here is a quick look at my last day.

8:30 Tuesday Zumba class at the YMCA. Everyone is “HAPPY.”
Then over to Sweet Spot Bakery with Miss Kathy and Miss Elizabeth and friends.


It was a good day, but a long day. I think I only slept two hours this morning, which can lead to the fulmination. I don’t want to write or sleep or watch tv. I just want to curl up and throw in the proverbial towel. Maybe I should just pack up my tent and move back home to Chicago. Texas was just too tough!




(OK, did you see this coming? I bet you did!)


Are you kidding? I love writing every day, I love Texas, I love McKinney, I love everyone.(well almost) I will continue to bore you with my brownie mix faces, my off key karaoke, and the mundane madness that is my life. I’m no quitter! See you tomorrow!

      Let’s see how many fall for it.

      I’m glad I read to the end. I almost picked up the phone to “urge you” not to quit writing…
