Thank you all so much for reading the blogs and chiming in - makes my day, I'll tell you!
DEBRA0818: your theory about having more difficulty damping down the unwanted emotional responses as we age makes great sense. Are we shedding, then, ... Read more
That is, totally inadequate when it comes to writing a blog tonight. Bleh.
I'm telling you, my emotional state seems to bounce around more now than it did in my teens (which may be saying some). Far into post-menopausal, so - what gives?

Remember a couple weeks ago when I said I had been thinking about some of the old Herman's Hermits' songs? I think I even used this one: "No Milk Today."
No blog tonight.
It's been a lazy day. Couldn't do yardwork - more rain. Didn't ... Read more
I'm a little early tonight, but we're going to watch a movie and I won't have time to get online again before my coach turns back into a pumpkin. Hah.
One of my fellow Sparklers has a couple of 'off-Spark' blogsites she posts to - she usual... Read more
I was reading thru some things today and came across that. It spoke to me.
Like so many people, I can get hung up on perfection. There are probably a gazillion reasons for this, but for me, it's a bit of convoluted thinking:

...so I said to Himself "I'm hungry all the time. I mean, ALL the time. It's like low-level noise in the background: it's always there, I just don't always acknowledge it.
"Take right now, for example. It's only been a couple of hours since... Read more
Dunno if that's good or bad. We tend to have quiet weekends - is that a sign of old fogeyism? Used to be that Friday and Saturday nights were for going out, but that long since went by the boards - by choice. I like my routine, and that means ge... Read more
Well, you know, ain't that always the case?
Today was mostly doubled-up housework. This weekend is a race weekend, and as Himself will be parked on the sofa for a couple hours tomorrow and hours and hours (lol) on Sunday, and since I like t... Read more
...outta ideas, outta time, just plain outta.
Over the course of my checkered career I've worked at a couple of newspapers - nothing fancy, just hometown dailies.
At the last job I had a weekly column in the Features section, every Wed... Read more
Got in another couple of hours in the yard, but the rain moved in this afternoon, and it's been torrential off and on the last few hours, so - reprieve for tomorrow!
Which is just as well, since it's grocery day, plus we go to order Himself... Read more
I am lazy.
No, I mean it: I really am.
I don't do things until I feel absolutely forced to. Take the yard. (I hear the voice of Henny Youngman add 'Please!')
What needs doing is the result of years of neglect. Oh, I don't mean to ... Read more
Got the grocery list made up, went to two - count 'em, two - different supermarkets. Got home just in time to fix lunch. Did that - an hour's break - and off to the doctor to get (finally) the report about the knee x-ray.
It shows nothing. ... Read more
Well, it's not really about Sunday morning, exactly. When I sat down here to do a blog, Spanky and Our Gang's (the group, that is, not the old B&W comedy shorts) old song came into my head. Remember them?
Anyway, this will be a short one. ... Read more
