Gone KonMari crazy with a little weep

For about the last 18 months, I have been on a mission to declutter. I mean, it seems like I am always decluttering my closet (that infinite space that reproduces even more crap the minute I close the doors). But I'm more serious this time. I'm even openly attacking Mark's clothes, albeit rarely worn dress…

Car stuff, weekend random

First and foremost, thanks so much for all the kindness and support from my┬álast post. While there are still several days left in March, my personal March madness has quietly concluded.

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere

Today started out as wonky, confusing weekend, but not at all bad or unpleasant - just me trying to catch up on unusual happenings the last few days.

“Hope is kinda the whole point”

So I was watching an episode of Supernatural while huffing and puffing away on my arc trainer and that's one of the final lines in the most recent episode. The two brothers were discussing what happens after death when Sam says that what happens after doesn't really matter, because "hope is kinda the whole point."…
