WASTING TIME - BUT HOW MUCH TIME??

I hate standing in line or waiting in waiting rooms or waiting in exam rooms - well, you get the picture.  I got to wondering exactly how much time I'm wasting.  The math was too complicated for me to figure out exactly how much time, mostly because I...

WHAT A WAY TO WAKE UP!

I got up to let Cleo out of her nightly prison at 4:30am.  She went out, hollered a few times, and came right back to bed!  I went back to sleep and slept until almost 5:00am, at which time I was awakened by the sound of a barfing cat.  Oh boy!  Just...

JUST WAITING AROUND

Hubby's cousin called at 9:00am today to say they wanted to get together tomorrow.  They called just in time, because I was about to get dressed.  I had been saving my best underwear for our little get-together, which was supposed to be today.  Now...

From the New Short-Haired Me:

We never heard from Hubby's cousin.  After thinking about it for a while, we  believe we sent our email too late, that they had probably already left home without a computer.  Anyway, now we don't know where they're staying and we don't have a cell...

HAIR CUT DAY!

It's hair cut day.  Hooray!  I figure when my hair gets long enough to touch my glasses in front, it's time to get it cut.  Since our hairdresser changed shops, she's a lot farther away than she used to be.  She's out by the hospital & Hubby's...

Getting to be 93

Hubby's dear aunt (well, mine too, by marriage) will celebrate her 93rd birthday on Thursday.  She is such a sweet thing.  She has only recently begun to get confused and forgetful.  She got ill and had to go to a nursing home, ostensibly for physical...

That Old Fat Lady

Charles shuddered.  It was time for Mrs. Hippenhammer's adjustments.  She came every two weeks, like clockwork, and he dreaded it every time.  She was just a nasty old woman, he told himself, he had dealt with so many before.  He didn't know precisely...

Scribbles #88 – Stand Back!

scintillating, soporific, slobber, solo, salami, scenario, schnieder, sandbagger, Sheboygan, studious, Scotch and Soda, scandulous, spaghetti, splatter, sphincter.   Sharon sat on her sofa with her sugary soda to watch what she thought would be...

The Walk-in Clinic

My throat was even worse this morning, so I called the doctor to see if she could work me in today.  The best her office could do was 11:20am tomorrow, which would be during Dad's early Easter dinner, so I declined.  The hospital recently opened a...

IT'S TOO SOON TO TELL!

So, I got up yesterday morning with a horrible sore throat, congestion and a headache.  Is it a cold?  Is it the flu?  Is it just the change in the weather?   I'm pretty sure now (since I've felt like this for two days) that it isn't just the...

Happy Easter to Me

My sister-in-law is fixing an Easter dinner next Wednesday for Dad.  I emailed her yesterday to ask what she wants me to bring and she hasn't answered.  Hubby suggested deviled eggs, which is a good idea.  Those go with everything, right?  I was...

WATCH OUT, DUCKY!

Okay, I'm going to write this the way I see it, and if you get another meaning from it, Ducky, so be it!   Since the weather has been nice and warm and sunny (all the way up to 70 degrees today), I've been working more on my cross-stitch...

Just Waiting Around

Hubby is tucked into his comfy chair with his blankee on his lap and a cat on the blankee!  He wants to take a little nap before we start watching some more shows on tape.  I think first up will be "Mr. Selfridge."  That will most likely be followed...

Another Day Bopping Around in the Little City

First we went to Dad's to give him a couple of week's worth of medications and make up his insulin shots for another two weeks.  When we got there, he was sound asleep in his recliner with the door unlocked!  It took us some effort to wake him up. ...

Rain, Rain

We were supposed to get up to 2 inches of rain today.  I think we must have gotten at least 4.  There were rivers down the outer edges of all the roads.  One good thing about rain:  it discourages (but does not quite prevent) the garage salers who...

Just Babbling

Anyone else see "Criminal Minds" tonight?  I'll need more than a lullaby to get to sleep tonight.  It doesn't really matter.  I'm on midnight Cleo watch anyway.   Hubby looked out the upstairs bathroom window around 6:30pm today and saw a deer...

Backwards Appliances and Other Complaints

My toaster has the push-down thingie and the electric cord on the same side of the toaster.  If you turn it around to get to the push-down thingie, the cord is wrapped around the bottom of the toaster and gets in the way.   We've had many...

Friends in Mourning

I have two friends whose husbands died young; one died from leukemia, the other in a boating accident.  They were in their early 40's.   My two friends never knew each other and the deaths occurred several years apart.   The first death was ...
