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

Playing with New Years Resolutions. Learning how to prioritize me.

Naturally, health is going to be on the list. The difficulty is this week especially, I have to focus on finances and getting things corrected before all the tax season stuff gets really going. That's what I hate the most, but today and tomorrow I'm dedicating myself to getting it all cleared up as best … Continue reading Playing with New Years Resolutions. Learning how to prioritize me.

A Pathetically Boring Thanksgiving That’ll Give Way to a Great Weekend…

I wasn't alone, not really. Had my finned, feathered, and pawed family around me all day, and the weather was nice enough (temperature-wise) that we spent a good chunk of time outside.

Overhauling my life choices again, but with anemia this time…

Well, that was an enlightening sucker-punch by the doctor when I went to visit yesterday. I'd done blood-work a month and a half ago (and had a hard time getting a follow-up appointment because of all the stressful crap going on), and went in yesterday. I was told a couple of things: First, I'm pre-diabetic. … Continue reading Overhauling my life choices again, but with anemia this time…

Haven’t had my head screwed on straight in over a week, & boy has it showed…

I should still be in bed dozing a while longer on my day off, waking up slowly. Instead, I'm sitting here at 6:30 a.m. with my first cup of coffee, trying to figure out how I could've oh-so thoroughly screwed up my week (and month by extension). I should be sitting out on the porch … Continue reading Haven’t had my head screwed on straight in over a week, & boy has it showed…

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…
