A very odd blog…

Can Bad seem Good?

Did you ever notice that when we change something for the better we often get stuck and don’t move ahead to achieve exactly what we pictured when we began? Something happens when we go from Horrible to better, even bad to OK… We don’t recognize that things are still not good. We can be tricked into […]

Room Cleaning 101

I used to be so overwhelmed with housework, especially when a room was a real mess. To avoid going to bed with a pint of Hagendaz and a spoon, setting a goal to get the house cleaned up needed to be done specifically. We can’t just say “My Goal is to have a clean kitchen.” […]
