Blogmas Day 22: Viewing Christmas Decorations

One of the things I enjoy most about the Christmas season is checking out the Christmas displays in different neighborhoods. While Andy and I were in South Jersey today, we took some time to view Christmas lights/decorations. Since I’m a huge Snoopy fan, we went searching for homes with Snoopy/Peanuts displays. We managed to locateContinue reading “Blogmas Day 22: Viewing Christmas Decorations”

December 22, 2018: Change

Life moves in such a fast pace, it’s easy to lose touch with people you were once in close contact with. The reasons could vary: crazy schedules, moving far from one another, or simply not maintaining connections as frequently. Then suddenly, they’re no longer in your life. Today I just discovered that a good friendContinue reading “December 22, 2018: Change”

Blogmas Day 21: Enjoying Coquito

Every time the Christmas season rolls around, I get excited about preparing Coquito to bring to parties and gatherings.

December 21, 2018: Appointments and Sharings

Thursday was such a hectic time for me after I left work. I didn’t think that was possible, but it was. I finally had a medical appointment that did so many tests, and I need to follow up next month. It was all necessary, yet I was taken aback at how much I needed toContinue reading “December 21, 2018: Appointments and Sharings”

December 20, 2018: Time for Reading

I wish I could read more of my current story during the week, since it’s a high page count. I’m still tackling my books about a couple chapters a night. Some days I have some time during my break, but I don’t want to get to used to reading then, since I usually get workContinue reading “December 20, 2018: Time for Reading”

Blogmas Day 19: Christmas Memories

This photo features myself with my good friend Melinda, and her sister-in-law Allyson. This was taken about four years ago. Andy and I were visiting them in Morris County, NJ during Christmastime.

December 19, 2018: Twelve Days Left/NY Mets Changes

It’s amazing that 2018 is coming to a close soon! The year has flown by quickly. I began the year in a period of uncertainty, and it’s ending with a (somewhat) clear goal. I’m definitely going to reflect on this further. I’m not going to write about my year just yet…there are 12 days leftContinue reading “December 19, 2018: Twelve Days Left/NY Mets Changes”
