Enjoying my life as well as complaining about it yesterday
Sunday, March 03, 2019      9 comments

It can be fun and useful. Having family members with "name-able" issues doesn't change who they are. It gives me a sense of "Gee, I knew I wasn't imagining that" to give me validation in my angst. In an attempt to win me over, my now 4... Read more
24 hours for me.

Today I read WATERMELLEN's blog about "magic" and found a small sliver of enlightenment on one section. She related a person's "release from a huge burden" as perhaps a source of gaining that "magic". That makes sense to me in my current e... Read more
Just like that, it's the last day of February and what do I have to show for it?

A higher weight. I hit the scale at 211 yesterday. I've been bouncing around 207 for years. I'm in much better shape now. My muscles feel well-toned, I've spring in my step and I breathe well when I walk or climb stairs. ... Read more

DEBVNE wanted to know what exercises I did. I use all the equipment the gym has to offer. I am fairly regular with this. ... Read more
My just reward for having candy
Saturday, February 23, 2019      14 comments

My ultimate reward for caving and buying and eating candy? A mouth full of crunchy stuff that sounded different and definitely did not dissolve into the sweet treat I had intended to have! Sigh. My dentist has told me that these issu... Read more

I had all the toys packed, dog walked and ready to go back to his family but the flakes fell fast, furiously and early! Not wanting to die on the 50 mile trip on one of America's busiest roads, I unpacked everything and spent another day/night b... Read more
Hooray for repairmen!
Tuesday, February 19, 2019      12 comments

DH and I managed to move out the dryer so the repairman could easily access the washer. New motor and some kind of electrical panel (the culprit) later we were back in business! The nice repairman sat on the living room floor and played with t... Read more
Whining about dogs. Yes, this has affected my diet!
Sunday, February 17, 2019      18 comments

Did I say how much I do not like sleeping with a dog? It sounds all cute and cuddly until someone brings in squeaky toys. He sleeps with fuzzy toys IN his mouth. Decides to wrap around my head. Settles on my feet. I traded to the pull-out ... Read more
I can't wait til they come home.

I awoke to a 10 pound lamb on my chest! You'd think that might be cute, but in his mouth and right above my nose was a green, smelly patch of cloth that used to be a frog toy. OK, I'll get up. Dash to the loo for myself, put on boots, robe... Read more

Life throws lemons. Make Margaritas.

The very nice repair guy sadly told me "Sorry, ma'am we don't store parts and will have to order" (for your fancy as$$ed Bosch front load washer you blow kisses to daily). Electrical parts are on order and he "hopes" they'll fix it in a few d... Read more
Ah, the closeness of winter, schools and kids

Well that was fun...I think. My eldest daughter, so happy on the phone with that voice that always "speaks" of favors to be asked. "So, Mom, what are you doing tonight?" This was followed by a harried description of 35 bags of items outsi... Read more
