Self Talk And Angry Cleaning

They say talking to yourself is a sign of intelligence. Good Lord I hope that’s true because yesterday there was a whole new level of chatter going on and I swear to you….only the dog was listening.  If you’d been a fly on the wall, the “oh so positive self talk” you wold have heard […]

Finding The Happy?

This week we celebrated “International Happiness Day“.  A day where everyone is invited to join the movement to create a happier world.  Did we though?  Did you?  I sure didn’t.  For me, this past Monday was a big old grumpy blur.  In reality it was just another manic Monday and I don’t think I did […]
