I’m pretty much a typical girl when it comes to creepy crawly things. I’m all about getting as far away as possible from any critter that crosses my path and finding someone to deal with the killing and the removal process. This year though we have had a really big problem with spiders in the house, and I have had to kill more of them then I ever thought was possible. I guess you do anything often enough it gets easier and less painful.

I went shopping at the Home Depot earlier today and found some spray for spiders and I also purchased a box of bombs that I made sure dealt with spiders and I’m going to set off one morning before leaving for work and let it do it’s job all day while I’m gone. Hopefully that will make a big difference in the amount of these nasty spiders that have no business in my place!

You Are Never Too Old To Learn

I know so many people who are furthering their formal education, most of them doing online, which I think is awesome! I have thought about going back to school myself, from time to time, but keep putting it on the back burner for one reason or another so I think I really need to buckle down and really check into it a bit further.

Walden University is a very popular, well established and well-respected and it is one of the top ten online degree Universities, since 1970, which is designed to be a University for working professionals who want to pursue advanced degrees without having to leave the workplace. They are known for their saying “A Higher Degree. A Higher Purpose” which is a pretty powerful statement, wouldn’t you say?

The Chronicle is a great resource for folks like me looking into a higher education for themselves and I would urge anyone interested in something like this for themselves to take the time and read it.

I just read an interesting and enlightening article in The Chronicle about the problem of a drink called Four Loko and how it is coming to light that this drink is a major concern for students in high school and colleges every where. I have never heard of Four Loko, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I won’t be drinking any of it any time soon, sounds like real bad news for our young adults that don’t always display the best judgement when it comes to drinking alcohol, no matter what it is called, what it looks like or how it tastes.

Your Spring is Showing

I’ve noticed that the pear trees are blooming, and I’m pretty sure that the redbuds are, too. I’m happy to have been seeing daffodils along the roadside the past couple weeks – especially those in median strips between divided highways; that makes the roads look really nice!  With this extremely strange winter weather that we have experienced this year I’m real curious as to how many of the plants do this year. I’m certainly looking at my own flower garden with much anticipation about what flowers will be showing!  I’m seeing plenty of greenery, and I’m pretty sure it is NOT all weeds!

So Many Pictures, So Little Time

I have always owned a camera and have always enjoyed taking pictures. I have boxes and boxes of pictures that I’ve never taken the time to organize and put into albums or scrapbooks. It is so time-consuming and with all of the pictures that I have, it is so very overwhelming. I have started and stopped so many times throughout the years, never really getting anywhere.

My cell phone is always filled up with pictures and I find that I have to end up deleting some from time to time in order to make room for more and it breaks my heart to have to hit the delete button, but you gotta do what you gotta do, right? I almost always have my camera with me, I usually carry it in my purse so that I have it available to snap a photo when I need and want to.
