Sharpies Are Awesome

I'm not going to lie, I'm an office supplies Sharpie nerd, and wee bit of a pen snob. If it doesn't write smooth, I truthfully won't use it. (Don't tell my husband about the numerous pens that I've tossed simply because I didn't like them).

But Sharpies don't usually disappoint. 

And the Premium pen  is no exception. I love the fine point and the ink flows freely with minimum pressure. 

This pen was small enough to write in the tiniest of margins on my desk calender. But it was also bold enough in color that I could easily see what I had written. I've claimed this pen for 'my use'. I even told Hubby that he will need to get his own because I don't plan to share. 

And it probably won't surprise you that I immediately fell in love with the Neon Permanent Markers. It's no secret that I am a lover of neon. These pens are bright. The color flows easy. And I loved how I could use the different colors to color code my calendar to help keep my family organized. I should also mention that since they are permanent, they are great for organizing boxes for storage. I've been doing a lot of organizing lately, and having bold neon colors labeling the boxes will make it easy when I'm looking for something that I happened to store. 

And who doesn't love a little metallic ink in their life? The Metallic Permanent Markers work great on dark paper. But I also found that they work great on white and other colored paper also. But using them on black paper really makes the metallic ink stand out. 

So yes, among other things, I'm a Sharpie nerd. And if you are like me and picky about your pens, I really suggest giving these a try. They definitely did not disappoint.

  1. Glad to see someone else that is an office supply nerd. I LOVE to go to office supply store and get new things to write with or color with or to just look to see what is new. I am a former educator and I could not wait until tax free weekend here each year just so that I could stock up on all kinds of new office supplies.

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
