Happy New Year’s Eve from Ms. Moxie xoxo

Dear readers, Welcome to 2017... I had a wonderful New Year's Eve. From the moment my night started, to the very end when I walked home at 2 am in my sparkly mini-dress. Well, that part wasn't exceptionally wonderful, but I was happy to not drink and drive. I felt like a glowing ball of love all night because I was so happy to be around my friends and co-workers. I felt so blessed. I also threw up the rocker…

Ms. Moxie Goes Back to School…

And I thought I loved coffee before... Dear readers, I have decided to go back to school. It was pretty much a no-brainer. The hospital where I work offered to pay for two of it's departments to take a coding class. It's one three hour class, every Wednesday, for the next year. Plus tons of self training and reading. You think one class isn't that big of a deal, think again. Medical coding is hard. And also pretty amazing. Do…

15 Goals of Summer 2015: The Recap

  Dear readers, I want you to know that you are officially a part of history, as this is the very first "recap blog" I have ever written. On June 8th,  I posted 15 Goals of Summer 2015, today my post will be a review of how well I managed to reach those goals. Since I haven't actually monitored my success throughout the summer, I am very interested in doing this recap. Here goes nothing Moxie people! 1. Go kayaking on various…

Camping with my Best Friend

Dear readers, I have the best friend in the whole world. We met when we were seven. We were in the same class together. We walked home from school one day and we realized that her family had moved in to my family's old house. I'd like to think we knew it was meant to be. We did ridiculous things together as kids. I think my child is weird, but when I look back on the things my best friend and I…

The Soo Locks With Sam

Dear readers, A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of taking my friend Samantha out on a date. The hospital offered it's employees a free dinner cruise with the Soo Locks Boat Tour, and I knew just who needed a night out. She's crazy, I'm crazy, it just works. If you are ever in Sault Ste. Marie,  I highly suggest you take the Soo Locks Boat Tour. Here are the beautiful photos from our night on the St. Mary's River.…

While We Were Out…

Dear readers, What a crazy few weeks it has been. With all the company visiting and fun events to attend, I decided it would be a wonderful time to take a writing vacation. However, now I'm back, and I have some updates!   1. My washing my machine (the one I just paid off) broke down, of course. The pump was broken, water leaked all over the motor, and totally destroyed it. One more thing to pay off yet again.…

The Whiskey River

Dear readers, Last week was an exhausting week, and this one isn't starting out much better. I wish I could curl up with Squeak and sleep a thousand years. Or maybe take a vacation somewhere exotic and warm. However, I can do neither of those things, so instead I'm stuck toiling around Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. I may not have palm trees, but damn if I don't have The Whiskey River. Here are the photos from my trip down the river. I'd like…

Happy Sunday

Dear readers, Happy Sunday! Today is a good day for dreamers. The minestrone soup is in the crock pot and I am two precious hours away from a three hour kayak trip down the Whiskey River. Can't wait to grab the camera and ditch the phone in the car. Yesterday morning, I got up at the crack of dawn with a head full of thoughts, as dreamers often do. Since this is Squeak's weekend with her dad, I was able to head over…

Ms. Moxie Kayaks

Dearest readers, I've never considered kayaking a "thing". Quite frankly, kayaking never crossed my mind in general. However, as of last week, I went on my very first 1.5 hour trip and I fell madly in love. Thus, I put kayaking on the very top of my 15 Goals of Summer 2015 list. Kayaking in the Upper Peninsula is always a beautiful adventure. I took quite a few photos with my iPhone on this little adventure, but I will post…

15 Goals of Summer 2015

Dear readers, I'm big on writing out lists and goals, doing this helps me focus on the major things that I need to accomplish daily, weekly, monthly, seasonally or whatever. Every Saturday morning, I write out a "To Do List" for the weekend as I'm working on this website. Naturally, now that it's officially June, I have written out my summer goals for 2015. I've been contemplating all week what my summer goals for 2015 should be. I sat and thought about them…
