Yes, I’m Still Here!!!

Yes, the Marvelous one is still alive.

No I have not fallen off the face of the earth, gone into hiding (sorry to my haters but I’m going to stick around), or been dumped in a ditch.

Coffee cup with steamLife has taken some twists and turns lately, thankfully with me prayerfully behind the wheel.  Grab your coffee, y’all, I’ll explain.

Let’s just get the dirty laundry out of the way first, shall we?

The Badge is history.  I had made it so perfectly clear that I have ZERO tolerance for liars.  It is a pity he opted to not heed my warning, because I did have a very good time with him and was so looking forward to vacation this summer and moving there.  However he chose to paint a very deceptive picture of who he was and that landed him on the not-a-chance-in-hell list.  My heart ended up not being as broken as I had thought it would be, because once you find out someone is not at all who they portray themselves to be, you realize you were not in love with anyone real, and he goes the way of the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause…nice while they lasted but nothing more than fantasy material.  SO he is off to his next relationship (my seat in the Mercedes didn’t even get cold before the next one was on the line), and I bid her the best of luck.

I started back to school this past week for what is thankfully only 2 weeks of classes.  I had let my STNA (state tested nursing assistant) certification expire while I was off working another job and well now that I need it to work, I had to go back.  It is going very well, though, and I’m looking forward to the clinicals this next week.

In recent weeks I’ve joined what I am rather certain is a cult.  I have an Erin Condren planner, which is super wonderful.  I was attending a Pinterest Party (a local, quarterly event where a bunch of women come together and share food we made from Pinterest recipes and do sponsored projects also found on Pinterest), and someone showed me their planner and OMG my fun and creative side went bonkers.  It was a thing of beauty, a work of art, an addiction I now call planner-crack.

This is an Erin Condren planner as it would look when it arrives and normal women have it:


And THESE are images of what happens when planner crack addicts get their hands on a planner and some stickers, colored pens, washi tape etc:

It is insane, colorful, creative and I’m so hooked that I am in need of planner-crack intervention.  There are Facebook groups full of addicts trading info, ideas, stickers etc.  This is my week just ending, it’s a start!


I’m a newbie so cut me some slack.  Many of these women need a semi truck to follow them with their supplies, I have some catching up to do.  If you feel yourself being drawn in, you can click HERE and save $10 on your own.  And I now feel like an enabler.  You can thank me later.

After this next week I will be back here writing more. So hang in there and try not to miss me too much!
