My Week: A White Christmas Nightmare

It was pretty routine up until Thursday. I’d taken that day off, thinking I’d be going to DS1’s place in the afternoon so I could be there bright and early Christmas Eve. Since Christmas was falling on Sabbath this year (makes it sound like an accident, doesn’t it?), that was when the family was planning […]

A Real Blessing

That’s what the Wii is. I wouldn’t have bought one yet. I was waiting for my finances to be in better shape so I could justify the purchase. However, things work out in mysterious ways. I can’t say it was an answer to prayer because I hadn’t prayed for one. I’ve heard of people who […]

My Week: Mii, Myself and I

Sunday was a busy day. I got up that morning with every intention of getting lots of things done before I had to leave for my friend and fellow church member’s memorial. I can’t say I got everything done I’d planned but I did get quite a bit accomplished before I left. I’d taken a […]

My Week: Surprise, Surprise

Sunday morning, I got up after daylight and when I looked out to see if the clouds weren’t blocking the sun, I was amazed to see snow! Not a lot but enough to cover the ground. It had evidently been carried to the deck by the wind because about half of it was covered in […]

My Week: It’s All in the Past

That’s the way it usually goes. What’s past is past. The future is uncertain. All I have is the present. What is that quote? “Yesterday is History, Tomorrow a Mystery, Today is a Gift, Thats why it’s called the Present.” You can find anything on the Internet. I was looking that up and found the […]

More Results

Last Monday, I spent enough time at the track to put in 2.5 miles. I didn’t want to be late to my 8 am appointment with my nurse practitioner so I didn’t stay long enough to make it three miles even. First, I found a bathroom and made sure I was comfortable, bladder-wise, and decent. […]

My Week: And Then There Were Four

Sunday, I did most of what I wanted to get done before I went to town to Trade. That included washing four sets of sheets complete with pillowcases and hanging them on the line. I didn’t plan to be caught short again any time soon. Throwing on some jeans and other clothing items, I left […]

My Week: Gone With the Wind

Sunday was overcast with rain off and on. I was caught without clean sheets. I should have washed them two weeks before but I was busy destroying almost all of the garden. The arugula has still been holding on, as has some volunteer dill, and the little tomatoes I picked are ripening. For that I […]

I’m Back?

Just a quick update before I go to bed. My energy level is increasing and the headaches and other symptoms are fewer and fewer. The tremor is still hanging around but it isn’t as bad as it once was. Last Monday, there was an open house for the four retiring doctors. I went over right […]

My Week: Wii Wii Wii

Another seven days is down and I lived through every one. It was a long week but I made it. That was an accomplishment in itself. On Sunday, I geared up to go to Trade, as my mother would say. It wasn’t something I wanted to do but with the time change, it gets dark […]
