Challenge, Day #26

Hubby was a dear and let me sleep in today.  He actually told me before we went to bed not to worry about Cleo if it was 4:00am or later.  I slept until 7:45 this morning!  (And a couple of hours during the night, too.)   Oh yes - the time is...

Scribbles & Bits #78

touchdown, zone read, tight end, Buffalo wings, pass interference, point after, offside, punt, throw the flag, delay of game, two minute warning, chip dip, long bomb, another beer, and Seahawks win. (Okay..that last one is optional)    Barbara...

Challenge, Day #25

I'm so tired, and I have nothing, absolutely nothing to write about.  Everyone has to be super-sick of hearing about my trials and tribulations with Cleo the Cat, so I'm not going to mention her again today.  Oh yeah - almost forgot - it's 2:52pm,...

Challenge, Day #24

It is now 10:45pm, January 29, 2014.   Up all last night with Cleo again.  When I won't get up, she starts at my feet and walks all the way up my side, then sticks her nose in my ear.  It's a very effective way to wake me up!   I slept...

Challenge, Day #23

Cleo Cat kept me up half the night again.  Hubby gallantly took the 5:30am feeding and I slept until 7:30!  He made a big breakfast.  We had half a nice pork chop, so he chopped it up and fried some eggs to go with it, and we had toast and orange...

Challenge, Day #22

Challenge, Day #22   The time is now 12:48pm.  I’m going to do this 30-minute segment in Microsoft Word and then paste it into the posting spot on Thoughts to save myself from typing the whole 30-minutes’ worth 2 ½ times like I did yesterday. ...

Challenge, Day #21 (again)

The time is now 2:04pm, Sunday, January 26, 2014.   I just finished the whole 30 minutes, starting at 1:25pm.  I had the topic typed in the topic box, his Post and my internet crapped out.  I logged on with the post still on the screen, but...

Challenge, Day #20

The time is now approximately 2:30pm on Saturday, January 25, 2014.  Now I won't have to keep trying to remember what time I started typing.  Ha!  I'm such a clever old broad.  And what to write about today?  How about the time I was rudely (but not...

Challenge, Day #19

I've been up all night.  Well, that isn't technically accurate.  I did sleep from around 11:30 until 1:45.  I hate my cat.   Hubby got up at 4:00am because he heard her squalling and didn't realize I was feeding her.  I guess he can't decipher...

Challenge, Day #18

I just finished typing my 30 minutes worth of nonsense.  I was reaching for the "W" to say, "Well, I've just finished my time," when somehow, I must have hit the wrong key and I was suddenly sitting there looking at my home page with no link showing...

Scribbles & Bits #77

Joey strung out the meeting with his last client of the day.  It wasn't difficult to do.  The old blow-hard would have spent two hours talking to his damn chickens if the chickens would stand still.  He really thought his little nest egg must be one...

30-min. Challenge, Day #17

This time, I checked to see what number I used last time ... doesn't mean it's right, just that it's one more than the last number I used!   We went out on errands today.  It hasn't snowed for a day or so and the plows have been through.  It's...

Nauvoo!!

Does anyone know anything about Nauvoo, IL?  My favorite cousin and his wife (Members of LDS) will be going there in March for a mission - I believe he said for a year.  It's the equivalent of two states away from us and I'd really like to go see...

Challenge Day #16

Once again, I'm not that's right - might be #15 or #17 - I've really got to remember to check before I open the text box.   Hubby went bravely through the ice and snow to Walmart yesterday morning.  I went back to bed and slept another hour. ...

Writing Challenge Day#15

Okay, I think it's Day #15, but I'm too lazy to go check.  If that's wrong, I'll fix it next time (if I'm not too lazy).   Back to my medical problems of the past.  That's the easiest thing I can think of to write about!   When last we...

Writing Challenge, Day #14

I started this a few hours ago, but of course Cleo elected to get up about 8 minutes into my attempt.  By the time she finished eating and I came back in here, I just decided to go back to bed and try to sleep a while before the next "feeding."  Can't...

Just Waitin' ...

We fed Cleo at 9:00pm, more or less, and it's 10:40 now.  That means she's going to wake up, hop off her heating pad and start yowling for more food any minute.  I'm really tired, but there's no use getting into bed, getting all cozy and warm and then...

30-Day Challenge, Day #13

It's Saturday morning, 04:33.  Cleo let me sleep from midnight until 04:00am, so I shouldn't complain too much!  She's totally zonked on her heating pad now, but of course I can't get back to sleep.   I think I've gotten past the worst of my...

Can't Sleep - Again! So, 30-day Writing Challenge, Day #12

I'm not even sure I'm up to Day #12, but I'm too lazy to go look.  I also really don't have anything to say this time.  There must be something in my past that I can write about.  The trouble is, I think I've posted my entire life story and am now...

30-Day Challenge, Day #11

Those of you (poor pitiful people) who have been following my exciting exploits so far are aware that I have one of my very widely-spaced colds.  I have been suffering with copious snot production.  That particular problem seems much better today.  I...

Spontaneous Snot

I've been fighting some sort of bug for weeks now.  I truly do have a wonderful immune system.  I haven't had a cold in years.  Having said that - I have a cold.   Since before my neural implant surgery, I've had a lot of sinus headaches, a...
