The Crossroads of Dreams and Imagination



Sadness and disappointment

It’s been a rough few days. Between disappointment at work and the death of a friend I’m just drained. I’m trying to stay focused on the idea that tomorrow is a new day. A new chance. A new
adventure. I can only hope that it ls easier to hang on to that lifeline tomorrow, after a good night’s rest.



I finished my interview and I believe it went well! I know that I answered all the questions to the best of my ability and now it’s in the hands of the powers that be. I feel great knowing that I tried and even though I really want the job and know that I would kick ass at it I will be happy whichever way it goes. I was the last to interview so hopefully I left them with a superior example. It’s odd the feelings that get stirred up with an interview. Am I wasting my time? And theirs? Am I really ready for the change? Will I be able to make the transition smoothly? And how am I going to feel if they offer it to me? Or if they don’t? So many possibilities and so many opportunities. For now I just pray they offer me the job and will continue doing my best with the job I currently have!

It’s gonna be a Great Day!!!!


I’m so nervous. I’ve been awake for hours and that is going to make for a really, really long day. But it will all be worth it if my interview today results in a promotion! I plan to do my best, I believe I’m exactly what the position is looking for – now I just have to prove it!

In the meantime I’m trying to focus on my writing this morning…but my mind keeps wandering. School is going well, for the first week, but we will see how it goes as the quarter progresses.

Its going to be a wonderful weekend. I’m spending time with family tomorrow and lets hope I don’t have to work tomorrow night. Though I guess it won’t be too bad if I do. I just don’t want cut my visit with family short.

Guess I’d better get focused and start getting ready for the day. The sooner I get going the quicker I get to my interview and hopefully to the start of my new future!

And so the chaos begins again…

Grad school is back in session and although I’m not quite sure how this class is going to go…it’s one step closer to graduation! In the meantime I’m trying to get back into my study habits. Not really looking forward to having one more thing on my To Do list…but it will be worth it in the end…I hope!


This was my inspiration for today…love the picture, just wish I had taken it. And now that I have procrastinated homework enough I guess I should get to it!

Monday Morning Madness

The weekend passed in a haze. It’s always a drag to wake up on Monday morning and realize that whatever I had planned for the weekend didn’t get done. Of course working all weekend didn’t help my To Do list but it will help pay the bills. And I have the best parents in the world because while I was working 10 hours yesterday they were putting together my kitchen pantry. It was a wonderful surprise to come home to and will be even more exciting once I get all the food transferred to it. Which in turn will give me space for my scrapbooking stuff and is one step closer to having a clean and organized house!


This is my mantra for today. I fully intend to live in the moment and think happy thoughts all day so that I will get to the end of the chaos sooner! If I’m lucky Tinkerbell will come and sprinkle me with pixie dust so I can sail away to Neverland. If that doesn’t work then it will just be getting through the day and getting back to the To Do list when I return. Especially since graduate school starts again next week so my days are about to get even more complex.

Thought for today…

Thursday morning….and I wish it was Friday. I’m sooooo ready for the weekend. Even with work and my painting project in the kitchen this weekend. Lots and lots to do, especially with school starting soon. But today is Thursday, so those are plans for another day.

My writing is going well…and I’m excited to see where my characters will lead me! The journey so far has been great and I’m confident that one day I will be published…just not sure what day that is…but someday!

Work is calling so I guess I’d better get going. Don’t want to be late…even if I’d rather not be going at all.



Can’t believe it’s been 9 days since I’ve written anything. At least online! Lots has been going on and I’m not sure how I feel about all of it but for now I’m just trying to grow through the change.

In the meantime, I’m staying focused on getting my story completed and ready to share. I would love it to be published but it won’t get there until I finish the darn thing and that’s a few thousand words away still – so I’d better get back to it.


Remembering Uncle Jack

Today is the anniversary of Uncle Jack’s death and I’m sad. I freely admit that I didn’t know him as well as I could have but I miss him. It’s always sad when someone is taken from us unexpectedly.

On top of the emotional roller coaster that is remembering Uncle Jack I’m heading to work, so I’m just praying for a calm and cool day at the office.

Death is a funny thing…it makes you re-prioritize your life and focus on what’s truly important. As I write this post I look around my house and wonder why I’m holding on to such nonsense? Why am I afraid to let go of the physical items and just keep the memories? And how do I get out of such a rut?

I’m going to have to start at the beginning, do my best and focus on finding a balance between my possessions and my dreams. There is no reason to be overrun with knickknacks and I refuse to become a Hoarder.



Uncle Jack and Haley

One of my favorite pictures of Uncle Jack. I know that he is looking down on his family and smiling as he watches out for all of us.
