Tomorrow, I go back to work. Things are delayed for a day because the silly drug test last week was delayed by a day (the testing center's computer was down. Sheesh!).
No worrie... Read more
I had a rather mixed week recently.
Because of getting a job, people suddenly want to see me/us. This is nice, but I was out of work for over a year and a half. I... Read more
Well, I got a lovely 49th birthday present, one week late, on the 9th.
I got a job.
Now, it is pending a drug test (I will test positive for Claritin and Unithroid - oh no!) ... Read more
A few things have happened recently. First off, I turned 49 on the 2nd (hence the song -- many thanks to Pseudobritchick for reminding me of it). One more year and I will hit a new ru... Read more
So we did have rain, and a few gusts, and there was some cellar water, but that's all gone and it's a beautiful day. I don't mean to gloat -- I hope it doesn't sound like that -- but ... Read more

I have thinking about budgets a LOT lately.
There's a pretty obvious reason. Unemployment is now gone. So we have to, quite literally, watch our pennies. We turn off fans and lig... Read more
This is my 5K finisher song. I try to be hitting the end somewhere during this song. I like it and, because I am more of a lyrics than a music gal, the lyrics have some meaning to me.... Read more
I have been thinking a lot about messages and communications lately. How we talk past each other. How we disagree ... kinda. How we say one thing but imply another. How being online ... Read more
Y'know, today I am wearing a top that -- gasp! -- shows my navel.
The top is short and the capris are low and so, yeah, you can see it. It's, eh, it's not the nicest one in the w... Read more
Ah, and here is the week where I lose 1/3 of what I gained last week.
So why is it so often that the highs are no so high, but the lows can be devastating?
