Come Take a Walk with Me (Not doing this right, but oh well!)

I'm fourteen years old.  It's January and I'm going to walk to the library to study.  I've got my books and my coat - I usually don't take gloves or a hat because I always lose them.  It's early evening and pitch black outside because we're in a new...

Change of Plans

I was going to post a nice, pleasant blog about the highlights of my past year; however, by the time I finished catching up on all the blogs my friends have posted, I'm too pooped to write, or think, or just about anything else!  I'm going to turn off...

My Birthday

So here's how it went:   Sat around and waited for Hubby to make up his mind what time he wanted to get started.  We wanted to go to a nice restaurant one town over, and we wanted to get dinner rather than lunch.  They have better food and more...

Bragging a Little

Okay, this is bragging, but it illustrates part of the point I was trying to make with my question earlier, which was, "If you could spend 24 hours with anyone living in the world, who would it be and why?"   One person mentioned perhaps Steven...

What If ....?

What if you could spend one day - 24 hours - with anyone currently living on earth, who would it be and what would you do?

Christmas Morning

My sister and I used to get up about now (04:00am) on Christmas morning.  We'd rush down the stairs, stopping just before the last step.  Then we'd sit down and wait for Mom  & Dad to get up.  We'd giggle and whisper, not really thinking we were...

So, Here's the Plan:

I think this may have been #3 or so on my original list.  On Tuesday, 12/25, I will make up the lasagna, that is, make the sauce, combine the cheeses, cook the noodles and assemble the dish, but not bake it.  I will also probably make a few deviled...

Yet More Problems.

Those of you who are sick of hearing me whine may skip to the next blog.  Thank you.   The pain dude had me on Cymbalta, 60 mg. a day.  I'm not supposed to need it now, so he gave me a little sample (7 pills) of 30 mg. a day, and now that those...

Proved Myself Wrong

I started out the past couple of days with great plans for all the things I wanted to do now that my post-op restrictions are sort of lifted.  I still have to move with care, the doctor says, no sudden twists or stretches.   Okay, I thought, I...

Sweet Miss Kitty

Hubby's beloved cat went to kitty heaven this morning.  I almost said "That Great Cathouse in the Sky" but I controlled myself.  She was an adorable cat, if you were Hubby.  She didn't think much of me unless I was the only human available.   It...

Merry Ho Ho

There once was an elf named Ollie Who really wasn't so jolly He hated his job Making toys in a mob Said he, "I'm off for Christmas, by golly!"   Santa had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb Santa had a little lamb that...

Round & Around We Go!

The cats asked to be fed.  They usually pounce at the same time, which is unfortunate since they're on two different kinds of food now.   Hubby's old girl (age 20) is eating a special enriched food from the vet for older cats.  It's very high in...

More Dang Limericks.

I sit here quietly and watch it snow Because there's really nowhere to go The snow's so deep I nearly weep But it has to melt someday, I know.   What's that sound I hear on the air? Is it Christmas Carols from voices fair? No,...

Is it the Crappy Weather or ...

So, am I catching a cold or is it just this weird weather messing up my sinuses?  I have a follow-up appt. with the pain dude tomorrow and I'm not supposed to come if I'm sick.  Trouble is, I don't know whether I'm sick or just having problems with...

Recharging - Literally!

I fired up my battery to turn off the neural implant at about 10:30 tonight and saw that it was down to 1/4 power.  I thought I might as well sit here and play on the computer and charge it up before I go to bed.  If I don't, I'll just have to do it...

The Whole House Smells

Maybe that's not quite the right title.  I should have said, "The Whole House Smells like Pot Roast."  Hubby is out there now, adding a little water.  He's fixing it in the electric skillet, just the way I always do.  He's unsure of how soon to add...

And yet another ...

There once was a drunk with a bottle Whom his dear wife wanted to throttle She told  him no more But he went to the store By the time he left, he'd spent a lottle.

OMG ... It Can't Be!

There once was a gardener named Pat Who really knew where it was at She weeded and hoed She chopped up a toad 'Cause she didn't know where he sat.   Poor Pat hated everything tacky Some people thought she was whacky Pink...

Saints Preserve Us - She's At It Again!

There once was a little black cat Who ate so much that she got fat. She gobbled and chewed She wailed and mewed So I simply bailed out - Where's my hat?   There once was an old man named Santa Who, when told of his job said,...

Afraid of the Dark Scribbles & Bits #72

She lay quietly on her back in the pitch-black room.  Her heart was beating slowly, rhythmicly as she came gradually out of a sound sleep.  She opened her eyes to nothing and closed them again.  "It will be all right," she said to herself, "I'll go...
