Honestly, I’m gonna have to say: Netflix! I have subscriptions to a few streaming apps but Netflix is by far my favorite.

I love to settle in with a good series. Some of my favorites were:



Blood Sisters



The Night Agent



Working Moms

Good Girls

Stay Close

Welcome to Eden

Grace & Frankie

Inventing Anna

Pretty Little Liars

Gossip Girl


13 Reasons Why


I love kicking back with Netflix and a pint of Ben & Jerrys! I know I didn’t get all of my favorites on the list though. Right now, I’m trying to get back into the new season of Welcome to Eden. I may have to go back and watch the last season. It’s been a minute!

What are some of your recommendations for good series? What should I watch next?

God Has Been Speaking to Me

For the last week or so I’ve felt the cloak of depression. At first, I wasn’t really sure what I was feeling, but as the days went on, I realized it for what it was. I told my husband that I was feeling frustrated, and he asked me about what? At the time, I didn’t have an answer. I was just feeling irritated and stressed and didn’t know why.

Last night, I realized why. I’m frustrated with myself. I get so down on myself sometimes when I think about my limitations. I’m afraid about my dental appointment coming up and I’m feeling more and more pain in my hips, but I know it’s from inactivity. I’m frustrated because I’m not progressing the way I should be.

I’m tired of letting things hold me back from doing what I need to do.

I had a long prayer with God today. I really need his help. I need strength. And I KNOW I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! Thank you, Lord, for clarity. Help me to do the things daily that I need to do to get to the next level of my life. I’m tired of holding myself back.

Positive Change from Attitude of Poverty

Daily writing prompt
Describe one positive change you have made in your life.

One positive change that my husband helped me with was letting go of my attitude of poverty.

When he met me, I was a single parent of a 17-year-old. We had been on our own since my son was 3. It was a really long, hard road and my son and I had been through so much. I was so used to surviving that I didn’t really know what “living” was about.

Everything I bought was the cheapest. I had to save every penny I could. I never splurged on anything! Everything was about survival for me and my son.

My husband came into my life and taught me how to treat myself. He convinced me that I did indeed deserve good things. He helped me to break out of my poverty mentality and learn to live a little. I’m so thankful that I didn’t waste my whole life in survival mode.

The Long Walk by Stephen King

What book could you read over and over again?

The Long Walk by Stephen King

I first read this book many years ago and I will never forget it. I’m not sure I can do it justice but let me just say it was powerful!

“In this number-one national best seller, “master storyteller” (Houston Chronicle) Stephen King, written as Richard Bachman, tells the tale of the contestants of a grueling walking competition where there can be only one winner – the one who survives.

In the near future, when America has become a police state, 100 boys are selected to enter an annual contest where the winner will be awarded whatever he wants for the rest of his life. Among them is 16-year-old Ray Garraty, and he knows the rules – keep a steady walking pace of four miles per hour without stopping. Three warnings and you’re out – permanently.

With an introduction by Stephen King on “The Importance of Being Bachman”. ~~~from Amazon.com

Love is Blind Season 4 vs. Anxiety

Love is Blind Season 4

You know what I hate? Being woken up unexpectedly by a dog doing her morning shake next to your head!

Which means: I now have to get up, go downstairs and let her out…wait for her to pee and then let her back in.

Most people could then get back in bed and fall back asleep.


If that had not happened this morning, I would still be asleep until at least 10am. If you’ve read this blog for a minute then you know how much sleep is an effort for me. But today it was totally my fault cause when hubby asked if I wanted her in bed with me, I said yes.


Ok, I’m done ranting…time for coffee and Love is Blind Season 4!

I still love you, Moki. Mommy just gets anxious. 🤪🤪🤪
