Which day is this?
Yesterday the love of my adolescent life passed away. Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy. I'm sure Heaven is a much more logical place!
Yesterday was also month-end at work,... Read more
Yesterday I had a near panic attack at work and almost quit my job. The situation I reacted to turned out to be not nearly as bad as I thought, so luckily I kept my head on (sort of) and I'm still employed.
I've had a problem with using the... Read more
Long week at work, poor sleep the last few nights. I'm drowsy and unmotivated today. But there's SO much I need to do. Cooking meals seems overwhelming lately. I stay in bed in the morning until I have to run, never mind breakfast. And at night,... Read more
Relighting a dead Spark
I have had literally no Spark for months. I've even been kicked off of a team I used to lead. I want it back, but I don't know how.... Read more
One of the handiest tools I bought at the restaurant supply store turned out to be one of the ones I initially paid the least attention to.
When I was a kid my parents had a small, long spatula (called a burger spatula in the trade) with a ... Read more
Okay, for the record salt-scrubbing does NOT work at cleaning cast iron. I tried to avoid using water at all but ended up having to anyway because I couldn't get all the salt out by dusting. Keep reminding myself -- most decades-old cast iron ha... Read more
I sort of haven't been eating
Well, of course I've been eating, just not properly. I will go a full workday not eating until dinner, and then it's frequently takeout. I who so love the culinary arts that I'll spend extra time in the produce section just looking at the colors... Read more
Apparently I dodged a cannon ball
Due to some revisions and adjustments to state Medicaid payments we got a payment statement of over 1,000 pages, and I was looking at having to hand post all of it. Given that each page is 25 line items, so that would be 25,000 individual posts.... Read more
Another cold wet day, but at least I don't have to go to work today.
I did use one of the new pans this morning. I beat eggs in it to make French toast, which I had with some sausages.
I'm knitting and resting my still-achy legs. I'm ... Read more
I'm not going anywhere today. I'm sleepy and my legs hurt. I'm slowly doing a few tasks but mostly just resting. I'm going to try to go to the computer store and the pharmacy tomorrow. I don't know if they're closed for the holiday or not.

Cold wet weekend
Getting more done than I usually do but less than I'd hoped to.
Yesterday I went to the DMV and FINALLY got my tag fixed. I figured that since it was a workday it wouldn't be crowded. I got there at a quarter after two and didn't get out until... Read more
Today a coworker came to my desk. She wanted me to transfer a payment from one invoice to another (a skill my entire department is supposed to have mastered). I can transfer a payment in my sleep. Just one little problem. She didn't know the inv... Read more
Is it even possible?
I've got a four-day weekend this week. Our office gets Monday off, and my boss just approved my personal holiday on Friday.
Friday I'm going to the DMV and finally fixing my years-out-of-date registration tag. So I'll FINALLY be able to dri... Read more
Finally, a good Sunday
Yesterday I had a visit from my nieces Sam and Leslie (my late sister's middle and youngest daughters, respectively) and Sam's boyfriend Jonathan. I thought I was supposed to wait on them, but they wouldn't let me do a thing! The girls even hand... Read more
Can I breathe now?
My ex came into a rather large windfall and gave me some of it. It was enough to accomplish some things I haven't been able to do in a long time (after, of course, I paid the rent). Now I have new shoes coming. Easy Spirits, to be precise. The S... Read more
