Finally knuckled down & did something that made sense for my goals: I bought a microwave.

That may not seem like much, but I haven't had a working microwave in over three years and was totally okay with never getting one. Every one I was looking at was so damned big when I considered it before. I have plenty of counter space, but most of it isn't very deep in this … Continue reading Finally knuckled down & did something that made sense for my goals: I bought a microwave.

My Christmas today could’ve been a cut-scene from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

That's probably my fave part of the film. Still don't think I've seen the whole thing. Anyhoo-- My plans were a bit boring. I didn't get to bed til about 1:30, and with only the furry kids in the house today, I took my time waking up. I gave 'em hugs for puppy kisses, fed … Continue reading My Christmas today could’ve been a cut-scene from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Family has come to the house, or when you realize you’re a true introvert…

My past few blog-less days were spent frantically cleaning my house and yard (mostly the house) as much as I could and then having my mom and stepdad over.

I’ve spent about 10 hours today trying to scour my new place…& I’m totally happy about it.

(Not my chair, but definitely one of my rugs because carpet sucks [pic from esalerugs.com]) Rest assured, I have not suddenly become a Stepford wife or something that's gone the route of June Cleaver wannabe. I made some plans and finally figured out how to get a good dose of cleaning done today instead of … Continue reading I’ve spent about 10 hours today trying to scour my new place…& I’m totally happy about it.

I Think I Found What Will Snap Me Out of My Depressive Apathy Toward Taking Care of My House…

My Wednesday isn't done quite yet. It's just after 1 a.m., I have the dryer going, and just came back from Mos Walmart ("you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy") where I was buying mousetraps. Yeah, I had all but decided to say "screw plans" and go to bed (as … Continue reading I Think I Found What Will Snap Me Out of My Depressive Apathy Toward Taking Care of My House…

Those Wednesdays You Wish Just Weren’t, Because it Means You Gotta Wait That Much Longer For a Well-Deserved Drinking Weekend…

And to think, I'm not much of a drinker in the first place. I knew this was the week for it when I started on Monday, and I won't have a semblance of calm til at least Saturday night. Today was the pits, however. I had to be at work and went in early because … Continue reading Those Wednesdays You Wish Just Weren’t, Because it Means You Gotta Wait That Much Longer For a Well-Deserved Drinking Weekend…
