Ok--what's your 25 things? Please click and link up with Shaunna!


  1. Ha-I am the morning-est person on the planet. I wish the day would END at 7pm. I'm always amazed at night people. And no, I don't want to be one.........

    This was a cute list. Sometimes being a grown-up IS sucky.....but I do like being able to eat cookies for dinner if I want!

    1. Your list made me smile! My dog is very sensitive to words, too. Pee, out, walk, treat...., etc. Even if we weren't planning on taking her for a walk at a certain moment, she gets so excited to hear the word "walk" that she guilts us into walking her.

      P.S. Ditto on the wish for working in the recliner in PJs. And I don't even own a recliner.


    2. @Sue-you crack me up. If it is 5am and I am awake it means that I awake--from the day before! Yeah being able to eat cookies for dinner IS awesome! Almost as awesome as Pizza for breakfast!

      @Jenny--Haha I know my dogs crack me up. I call them my little furry kids. You should TOTALLY get a recliner. They are so comfortable! Everyone that comes to my house wants to nap in it!

  2. i sure hope if you wish for a job ... you will find one soon. i've been out of one for a while now ...but i think the hubby like it & i love not having a boss yelling at me all the time. i would love to work from home. that would be such fun. (:

    1. Thanks Beth! I know I will have to get a job...eventually. It is kinda nice to actually have time to do the things I said I would do...if I had time. Before I had money and no time. Now I no (or very little) money and lots of time. I am actually happier now. So old adage is true. Money can't buy happiness. Though it sure can pay for a good time, hehe

  3. Found you on the 25 Things Link Party! I'm a new follower! Would love for you to visit me at

  4. I hated being in management, too. ICK! Have a great day!

  5. My son and daughter are in management, boy, the things I've heard.LOL Loved your 25 things, I am so not a morning person but my husband is!

  6. Love your 25.

    On the management front, I remember a work seminar (many, many moons ago) where they talked about "rising to your level of incompetency" ...

    ... that idea has stuck with me for 20+ years. The idea that 'because you wrote a great press release" or 'because you sold that this or that" suddenly you are now worthy and capable of managing (and mentoring) others ...



    1. Linda--Wow that's awesome. I am definitely gonna remember that! The reason I hated being in management is because I was nothing more than a glorified babysitter. AND I had no authority to hire/ fire. My "management" never did anything to address the issues. My performance was held accountable based on the non-performance of others...bleh. Do you know how bad I wanted to shout "Suck it up and get your big boy/ girl panties on. It is called work for a reason!" GGGRRRRR....Never never again! (Ok and that's the pg13 version--No one REALLY wants to know what I wanted to say, haha)

  7. I am so sorry to hear about your job loss, however, I hope you find something you truly love (at home in your PJs)! Life is too short to spend all day at a job you are not happy with.

    Love the list of 25--so many could apply to me!
