Tuesday: Trials, Tribulations and Throwing in the Towel

2 Apr

Sold my soul and yeah, the truth hurts.”

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!)

APRIL FOOLS!!!!!!!!

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!
