Ok , married ladies. Oops, ladies married to men. I have some wonderful friends who are married who don't fit in that category. Times are a'changing. If you haven't already found out...guys don't make it through the night. I didn't equate my... Read more

Disclaimer: I had cervical cancer, well watched, and surgery -no chemo or radiation needed. I can't state from personal experience how those things feel BECAUSE I DON"T HAVE TOO! I have been a caregiver for multiple relatives who didn't do, ... Read more
You have to be in it to win it, according to the add. Lottery of life.
Saturday, June 07, 2014      8 comments

Every once in a while I contemplate winning lotteries. Today as I gaze at my dirty carpet, I realize I haven't "washed" it since the dog died. I used to clean it 4-5 times a year due to dog stuff. Now it's 2 people. If I won a lottery ... Read more
Lightening strikes again. Not sleeping

I met my brother's finance guy and was pleased with the results. We spoke about my family so I called my brother while I was driving home--hands-free--. He laughed and told me he had so much going on he didn't know where to start. So he start... Read more

I attended another wake for a young person last night. This 26year young man fought a very courageous battle with sarcoma. Not much to say. You expect to loose parents, spouses, friends. Loosing kids is just so damned hard. Work is... Read more

The intrepid traveling grandparents. My DH, his brother and wife traveled to Hawaii a few years back and had a blast. We've picked Olympic National Park for our next venture. I found 3 homes to rent. One on a river where salmon should be sp... Read more
Feeling Classical; literature, that is.

My Wonderland blog had me thinking of the books I've read that turned into movies. There have been a lot and I do prefer the written word. Be forewarned most of my books, and movies are from a few years ago. Andromeda Strain-like the b... Read more
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall.
Thursday, May 29, 2014      7 comments

Alice would say,this get curiouser and curiouser! I followed the rabbit down the hole and ran into every character in Wonderland. Nothing is as it seems. Lewis Carroll's imaginations' got nothing on my reality. Now I'm getting hit wit... Read more
Hmmm is my downfall related to non-tracking?
Tuesday, May 27, 2014      7 comments

One day I didn't have time. The next I told myself, "You're having the same things." One day led to another and I stopped using the tracker. I can't remember why I really "stopped" Yikes! I haven't tracked any food since the second week o... Read more

Another Memorial Day. I used to call Dad and tease him that today meant I should remember to call him; my favorite veteran. Today I'll simply remember him. My family was full of military service people. Most of my uncles, one of my aun... Read more
Throwing the lemons back.
Saturday, May 24, 2014      2 comments

My intention was to move the stones, play with grand kids and do some cooking. Sure. DD's migraine made her cry "Uncle" and she asked if I could take her to the hospital. Nothing unusual; she's had these since she was 10. Now she's 31.... Read more
Calm weather, lots to do.

We escaped the storm; it was pretty neat watching TWC pictures of DD's area turn black with rain and how much lightening was around. Haven't spoken to her yet to find out how she fared. Probably slept through it. Things should dry up for th... Read more
Oh, the weather outside is frightful...
Friday, May 23, 2014      6 comments

Thunderstorms. I'm getting tired of listening to the Weather Channel beeping and I'm not even at ground zero! Mega lightening strikes, flash flood warnings and hail. I can take 2 of 3, the hail makes me nervous as I have skylights. Hail is n... Read more
Change of plans. My pool will be replaced Sunday
Thursday, May 22, 2014      5 comments

Yikes! Now I have to run home from work tomorrow for the parts delivery, run back to work then run home again to dig more stones. I enlisted DD, SIL and even GS to help move the stones on Saturday. GS will probably eat the rocks. He's into g... Read more
Something about Thursday. My weekend planning day.
Thursday, May 22, 2014      7 comments

Anticipatory? Almost over? I'm done with this week already. I'd like to have 2-3 days to get my house in order, it's been badly neglected. No dust bunnies but we've both been overworked and there's a pile of mail here, a pair of shoes ... Read more
