Dark Fate Review

I got to see Terminator Dark Fate yesterday. And I have to say, I like this one, too. It has a different spin to the same story line, but I’m totally ok with that. It’s a fun storyline. The action was phenomenal. And Linda Hamilton….yeah she owns badassery for sure. I’m not super versed in the history, timelines and all the technical stuff about the Terminator universe, so keep that in mind as I start my next sentence. It appears the movie picks up from Terminator 2, like the third one (with Claire Danes) didn’t happen. I’m sure I’m missing[…]

RIP, Floater Fred

This year has been one of repair…My foot a few weeks ago, and today…my eye. I won’t lie, I’m a little nervous having something surgically fixed on my eye today. I have to repeatedly tell myself, with frequent reminders from those closest to me, my eye doc sees this stuff all the time, does these procedures all the time, it’ll be fine. And if it’s not, we’ll deal. Total logic and truth, right? Why do nerves insist on throwing WHAT IF in after every thought? I mean, I use those words a lot when I write. They can be VERY[…]

Candy Hangover? #TheRunningWriter

Happy November, my friends. Anyone suffering from a candy hangover? I’m looking forward to a great month. Getting back on the trails after foot surgery, enjoying the cooler weather, and writing more. I got the all clear from Doc to start biking, and while I’m not a huge fan of the stationary bike, I was all like, “YES! I’ll take it.” It’s amazing what you appreciate after some forced down time. What you take for granted. Sure makes you rethink things. Here’s to a great November, everyone. A month filled with positivity, strength and adventure. What goals do you have[…]

Setbacks and Comebacks

**Your greatest SETBACK could lead to your greatest COMEBACK** I heard that phrase at church this past weekend and it really encouraged me. I hope it can encourage you, too. No matter what we’ve done–the good, the bad, the ugly–it can used to fuel our greatest comeback from our low points. Hang in there, my friends. You are strong! You can use whatever you’re dealing with right now and let it be the start to an amazing comeback.

A Day of Nothing #TheRunningWriter

This morning, about the time I’m typing this, I had been scheduled to be running down the South Rim of the Grand Canyon on my grand adventure of running Rim to Rim to Rim (R2R2R). Instead. Here I am:  I get to spend the next week pretty much like this. Foot up. Netflix binge-watching on the TV. And my little friend Rocket carrying me around the house. I’d been planning the R2R2R adventure for over a year. My sweet hubby and I were going to do it together. He’s never done Rim to Rim, and I’ve done it twice. But[…]
