Lady Luck smiled today

So my husband went four-wheeling today. The Black Friday ride is an annual tradition (though it was Black Saturday this year due to rain) and is what’s called an LFD ride.

Left. For. Dead.

This is a bunch of idiots pounding through the woods on ATVs at speeds you’d probably be surprised ATVs can reach. Seriously. During one Black Friday LFD ride, a machine broke down and had to be towed. They towed that machine through … Read More »

Not-so-Black Friday

There is one true constant in my life: I hate shopping. I don’t care if it’s food, shoes, clothes or toys—I don’t wanna go. I didn’t even do the bridesmaid dress thing with my sisters.

My most anticipated read of the year is here

When this post goes live, I’ll be on my way to the Chevy dealership to have the fan motor resistor thingy in my truck fixed. And I can’t wait! Why? Because, thanks to the wonders of preorder and digital reading, Stephanie Tyler’s Hard to Hold will be magically appearing on my iPod in the morning and I’m going to curl up in a corner of the waiting room with a coffee and the book I’ve most wanted to read this … Read More »
