Monday motivator

Just like anyone else Monday is not my favorite day but hey it is what it is, like it or not we have to get through it! I've learned over the years that reading something positive or even at times humorous can really help shape the day I will have and wanted to share that here with all of you as a way to jump start the week.


I know this may come across a little cheesy but close your eyes and take a deep breath and slowly let it out (trust me this works), now read the quote below and at some point today take a moment to reflect on how it relates to you.



Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.
Brian Tracy

www.3twentysix.com Ari posts a little bit of everything on her blog from TV to music to cool apps and book reviews mixed in with bits of silliness. I promise you’ll find something of interest there if not you will at least get to enjoy some pictures of her furkids.

happy fab five friday

To kick off my first fab five Friday I’ll be sharing 5 random facts about myself.

1. I played the violin, cello, and clarinet as a kid. I would love to pick up the violin again but just haven’t made the commitment, I’m not sure if it’s just laziness that’s preventing me or the fear of failure.

2. I’m a pipeliner’s wife. What’s that you may ask? To answer that question I have to first give a little back ground on what a pipeliner is. LOL usually when people ask what my husband does my favorite response is “He lays pipe” that always gets a laugh. But, in all seriousness pipeliners travel the country installing underground gas lines, it’s a dirty and dangerous job but somebody has to do it. There are 2 different types of pipeline wives; your travelling wife who travels with her husband from job to job living the gypsy life and your stay at home and hold down the fort wife– I fall into group two. The distance is hard but in my opinion it leads to a stronger marriage. I believe the fo…
