I Will Just Start Tomorrow…

This is the year I get healthy and look smoking hot in a bikini.  I start today! Now that I think about it… It is New Year’s Day and I’m still hung-over from the night before and fried chicken sounds good.  It is no problem if I start tomorrow, right? I was going to start […]

Preparing Your Home for Sale

For some of you, oil is in your blood.  You have grown up around it and many family members are in it, it is simply what you know.  Real estate is like that for me.  As a child, it was Saturday mornings at Home Depot so my Dad could repair something at his rental property. […]

Let’s Get Real

I’m not sure if “The Real World” from MTV is even on anymore, I believe I’ve moved out of the prime demographic for MTV.  Nonetheless, I’m reminded of the tagline from the show, “… Find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real.”  I would like to change that to, find […]

He said, “I don’t want you to lose your head about this, but I just got laid off.”  My mind was going in a million different directions.  He continued, “We aren’t going to cry about this because we don’t have time to feel sorry for ourselves.  I need you to be strong, we are going […]

Do You Have Children?

Do you have children?  I find that it is one of the most common questions people ask when you first meet.  It’s a quick way to find common ground with new friends or acquaintances.  I can watch as other people answer and quickly can discuss ages, teaches, toys, and similar experiences.

Get Prepared

I think each one of us is watching oil prices as they dip lower.  The average American is excited about the low price at the pump.  Oilfield families know that low prices at the pump could mean job loss.  What scares me even more is that if the oilfield slows down, the US economy will […]

Just Keeping It Real

This post is dedicated to the ladies who have spent the whole day smiling with spinach in their teeth, a nipple peeking out of a swimsuit, the back of your dress tucked into panties, or foreign objects hanging out of a nostril.  You’re awesome. If you ever hear me bragging about being humble (because Jesus […]

Stop Judging, Start Loving

Why do we do this to each other as women?  I’ve done it.  I’m sure you’ve done it.  We take something that has happened, put it through our own filter of personal experiences and think someone has wronged us or doesn’t understand us.  We are OFFENDED.  We are going to let them know about it. […]
