PJF Trail: The Trail’s End?

So tomorrow is my 45th birthday, and if you have been reading for a while and keeping track of my goals (because you have nothing better to do with your life, and let’s face it, I am fascinating), you may recall my first post about the Peaceful Joyful Free Trail in which I set the…

Update All of the Things

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and there really is a lot going on in my life. I figured I owed it to you to share some updates.  Where to begin… Kittens!  I has them!  Mama Cats had her babies just one week after I rescued her (and her siblings) from their hellish situation. …

And Then This Happened

Today at the New Job…(It shall be called the New Job until it is no longer new.  Which will be when I get used to it all and these sorts of things stop completely shocking me.) My boss was struggling with creating a flyer/poster, and I was kinda not doing much, plus I love doing…

So How’s the New Job?

Last week was my first week at my new job, and I know everyone wants details about how it went.  (Because you are fascinated by me and my life, right?  No?  Well, I’m gonna tell you anyway.) Basically the new job is awesome.  I really like the people, and I feel like I’m respected and my…

Battle of the Bargain Beauty Boxes

I love getting a good deal, and I love beauty products.  Beauty box subscriptions are great way to score both of those things, plus, it’s like Christmas every time a new box arrives in the mail.  I thought I would share what I got in the Walmart and Target boxes this month as well as…

I don’t like my job, and I don’t think I’m gonna go anymore.

When I started this blog, I went back and forth in my mind over whether to make it anonymous, thus allowing me to be brutally honest about anything and everything happening in my life, or whether to attach my real name and identifying details, and therefore have to be a bit more careful about what…

Mani Monday: Some Bargains and Where I Found Them

I’ve gotten way behind on my Mani Monday posts, so once again we’re doing several manicures at once.  Let’s start with this past week.  I wore Zoya Azalea, which I found half price at my local Ulta.  Ulta is hit or miss for bargains on polishes.  I either totally score, or I walk away with…

On Why I Like Most Cats Better than I Like Most People

I haven’t been posting much lately, because my life has just been unbelievably hard for an unbelievably long time.  Every time I sit down thinking I’ll post about my manicure or some other deep thoughts, I just don’t have the strength.  But yesterday things took a definitive turn for the better in a variety of…

People at Walmart are A$$holes

These aren’t my words.  I would be much more likely to say, “All of the stupid people in Columbia are at Walmart today.”  As they often are. I haven’t done an “Overheard at Walmart” post in a while.  I suppose this one might not truly qualify, as it wasn’t overheard.  It was said directly to…

Mani Mondays: Catching Up

It’s been weeks since I’ve posted a Mani Monday, and I have a lot to say about the polishes I’ve been wearing lately.  Some good, some bad, some…no.  Just no. Let’s start with a springy mint green with a wintery name,  OPI My Dogsled is a Hybrid.  I snapped a picture of this one when Olivia…
