I forgot how exhausting job searches are, and how NOT user friendly and time consuming the sites are… til today.

I should've figured waiting a couple weeks to try again with applications would've led to a drastic reduction in available jobs. So, I'm partially kicking myself, but at the same time, I was waiting for word (or a lack of word) to let me know if I should keep trying. I forgot that it'd be … Continue reading I forgot how exhausting job searches are, and how NOT user friendly and time consuming the sites are… til today.

Oh, how the monkey wrenches keep coming… I just hope I can duck & dodge a little better this time around.

It would've been nicer if I'd been a little quicker on the "idea train" this morning, but oh well. There's always tomorrow. I had a good thing going with my exercise and eating schedule. Had a few missteps and some tweaks I needed to make, but nothing terrible. I was going along pretty well the … Continue reading Oh, how the monkey wrenches keep coming… I just hope I can duck & dodge a little better this time around.

When you’re screwed & you know it, & get even more screwed, to the point where you’re ready for the meteor to hit & end it already… but still hanging onto a thread of hope

Well, no meteor, but the dog suddenly revealing what "supposedly yummy treasure" she ingested from who-knows-who's yard all over blankets and the floor a couple hours before bedtime is a helluva substitute for a universal F-you. I'd planned to stay up a while with a list of things to at least get a good start … Continue reading When you’re screwed & you know it, & get even more screwed, to the point where you’re ready for the meteor to hit & end it already… but still hanging onto a thread of hope

My mind has been out of action for nearly a week… & it’s slowly coming back online.

If you were to ask me what I did this week, I'd be hard pressed to give you little more than a very vague answer. I know there's a bunch of things I was THINKING about doing, but somehow the week slipped by (and yes, I went to work...wasn't THAT far gone) and I realized … Continue reading My mind has been out of action for nearly a week… & it’s slowly coming back online.

Q #163: What’s the best way to get rid of slimy/sticky hands after cutting up melons, (because soap doesn’t seem to work that well)?

I went a bit nuts last week when I was at the store and they had sales on all kinds of melons. So, being an impulsive twerp, I bought one of just about every kind I could. Some I weren't able to use in time (I found myself in the middle of an infestation in … Continue reading Q #163: What’s the best way to get rid of slimy/sticky hands after cutting up melons, (because soap doesn’t seem to work that well)?

The oh-so important core of your body, & why it’s a damned nuisance, too.

Maybe I'm being a bit hyperbolic, but I can't help it. I'd finally gotten a chance to sit down after deep cleaning both fish tanks and hauling water most of the afternoon. I was happy to find my internet back on and working after a day without. When I had to get up and get … Continue reading The oh-so important core of your body, & why it’s a damned nuisance, too.

Blitz Q #158: When your sleeping patterns have been interrupted for a while, which is the worse scenario…?

I've pondered this one for years and still can't make up my mind on which would be worse when you've had lousy sleep for a week or so, and then one morning either: A. You wake up, and you're wide awake. Not a trace of sleepiness, must've been a deep sleep. You're awake enough that … Continue reading Blitz Q #158: When your sleeping patterns have been interrupted for a while, which is the worse scenario…?

My near-week of dizzy hell points most likely to Vestibular Migraines

Even now, I'm typing this in my darkened living room, occasionally looking at the TV screen with one eye shut from 10 feet away to keep out the super-brightness coming through the blinds. I just went online out of desperation and ordered some indoor migraine/gamer glasses to keep on the end table and desk in … Continue reading My near-week of dizzy hell points most likely to Vestibular Migraines

Maybe it’s the novelty of new appliances in the house, but I just might enjoy doing the laundry from now on…

I'm gonna sound like a 1950s housewife, stereotypically gushing about the latest chore-saving gadget that my loving husband bought for me to keep me a happy modern woman. Ugh. (Cool colors, though.) I'm not married and I picked out my new washer and dryer on my lonesome after weeks of comparison shopping over the internet. … Continue reading Maybe it’s the novelty of new appliances in the house, but I just might enjoy doing the laundry from now on…

Actor Samuel L. Jackson Gives Us A Message Regarding Covid-19

I fully credit Xena from the blog We Hold These Truths to Be Self Evident for posting this one yesterday. It was a much needed laugh, but damned true, too. If you haven't seen him read this poem yet, then you've missed something short and sweet. Definitely not work friendly, though, because--you know--it's Samuel L. … Continue reading Actor Samuel L.
