I Love it when I'm Right!

My story is set in the 1840's.  I had the husband cut a window in the cabin, which his wife then covered in oil cloth.  Hubby said it hadn't been invented yet, which would have been a bummer.  How-some-ever, he was wrong.  It was invented in the...

WHAT I DID AT THE ORAL SURGEON'S OFFICE TODAY

Well, not a hell of a lot, as it turns out!  He looked in my mouth and poked around and said,"You mean this tiny bump?" and poked it.   I said that was the one, and he said it wasn't anything to worry about, it was just a little bulge in the...

Tomorrow's the Day - Again!

I'm going to the oral surgeon tomorrow, oh joy.  I was supposed to go early this month, but I hurt my back just two days before and knew I couldn't do it.  No excuses this time - and anyway, I really want to find out what the odd little lump on my gum...

The Hair

It seems like I went from "just right" to "too long" overnight.  How does that happen?  One day, I can just run my fingers through it in the morning and I'm good to go all day.  The next day, I get up and it's all standing on end and refuses to...

Another Errand Day

First stop was the recycle - paper, cardboard, cans, plastic.  Then we went to Dad's so Hubby could make his shots.  I took that damn baby blanket along and tried to work on it, but Dad's lighting is so bad I couldn't see the light yellow against the...

New Stuff to Try

In desperation for a little relief without pills, I called the Medtronic rep who helped set up my neural implant.  She came right up here and met us in the lobby of the hospital.  She can read all the activity on my implant from the battery in my...

Scribbles #93

Joe & Billy were bored.  They were always bored.   "Whatcha doin', Billy?" asked Joe.   "Nothin', Joe," Billy replied.  They sat on a fallen log together and looked into the shallow creek beneath their feet.   "Well, watcha wanna...

Writing

This book thing has taken on a life of its own.  I had a careful outline all prepared, knowing just where I wanted to start and end.  However- the middle isn't cooperating!  I keep thinking of more stuff to add.  I've even gone back to the beginning...

A Rough Night Ahead - Maybe

This will be my first night without pain pills since I hurt my back last week.  I'm not looking forward to it!  I will probably take an over-the-counter sleeping pill, though, which will help some.    I really want to get better in a hurry.  Our...

Things We Still Do (now that we're catless)

Hubby goes into my bathroom first thing every morning and sometimes makes it all the way to the shower (where the cat pan used to be) before he remembers ...   We check the carpet for barf every morning.   We wonder if we've got enough...

SCRIBBLES #92

Joe and Carol really hit it off.  They weren't even sleeping together yet, but he couldn't seem to think about or talk about anyone else.  For one think, he told his secretary, Carol was such a good cook.  She didn't mind having him over for supper...

Happy Mother's Day to Me!

I'm looking forward to my day.  I'll be doing only minimum cooking, and Hubby will be helping with that.  Meanwhile, I'll have leisure time for the computer or stitching projects.  I'll hear from my kids at some point, which is always nice.  All in...

TLC #8, Fortune Teller

"I am the most bored fortune teller on the face of the earth," I sigh, as I watch everyone at the carnival walk past my tent.  I wonder for the hundredth time why I agreed to do this.  I've only made a few dollars for the PTA so far, and I'm about to...

Calling the Vet

As soon as the vet's office opens this morning, I'm going to call and tell them I want to bring Cleo in to have her put to sleep.   She cries all the time; she can't eat; she's losing so much weight; she's never happy; she doesn't even purr...

Crossing the Pass - an Excerpt

I need some help here, please.  Is this all too corny?  Some honest criticism, please!!   Soon after they began their trek down the mountain pass, the sun was covered by low grey clouds.  Charlotte took one look at them and knew they were snow...

Letting the Cat out of ... the Bedroom

It's pushing 5:00am.  I usually let her out around 4:00am, but thought I might let Hubby get a little more sleep today.  I got close to 4 hours myself, which is a little more than usual.   We got Arby's sandwiches and had lunch with Hubby's Dad...

A Whole New Bedroom

Chrissie woke up in the dark.  She didn't like doing that.  Usually, she slept through the whole night and saw sunshine outside her windows in the morning.  She shut her eyes tightly and pulled the covers over her head.  She noticed that her blanket...

A Nice, Lazy Day

We had hamburgers for lunch with a side of greenbeans from yesterday.  I love greenbeans- done up with little potatoes, bacon and mushrooms and then sauteed for hours!  We had gotten up very early, so we ate lunch at brunch time.  That gave me extra...

Off to the Dentist I Went!

Had a dental appointment this afternoon.  It was just for cleaning - no cavities - but I do have a strange, hard little lump way at the bottom of my gum on the left side.  The hygienist took a couple of x-rays of it.  The dentist looked at the x-rays...
