When you’re falling behind, but don’t seem to care…

I don't know what it is, but I've let so many things slide this week. Things I've absolutely had to do, like coursework and finals (which I'm going to try to take tomorrow, hell or high water), house-cleaning and exercise. I did get quite a bit accomplished outside, I have to admit. I spray-painted my … Continue reading When you’re falling behind, but don’t seem to care…

When the mind just doesn’t want to work…

My brain's been on the back burner the past few days. No matter what I tried to do, it just wasn't going to work. Now, there were things I needed to do--and could, actually--outside, so it wasn't so bad and it wasn't a totally useless weekend. Today was supposed to be different, though. Today I … Continue reading When the mind just doesn’t want to work…

Biting the bullet & making a tough choice that feels like lancing a boil… in the brain.

As fun and accomplished as yesterday turned out to be, today, sadly, was not quite so accomplished. At least, not on paper... but emotionally it's been something else. All I managed to do yesterday, I think I'd be generous to say I'd gotten 1/4 of the same done today. I woke up an hour late … Continue reading Biting the bullet & making a tough choice that feels like lancing a boil… in the brain.

I forgot what a full (& productive) day felt like, til now.

I'm trying to figure out how it happened. Other than a quick go early this morning online to do a few basic things for my gaming team to get points, I got started with my day. I think I only touched YouTube most of the day to put some stuff on for noise come mid … Continue reading I forgot what a full (& productive) day felt like, til now.

Getting past a week of migraines through rest, yard work, & glasses… who knew?

I've been offline the past several days because I had a hard time concentrating through the pain. I hated it because I wanted to read posts and catch up on what has been happening. Well, some interesting things helped knock my migraines and eye pain out, things I didn't expect. When I couldn't stand looking … Continue reading Getting past a week of migraines through rest, yard work, & glasses… who knew?

Needing Help from the Freelancers: I’m drowning in app options for task managing / productivity

I'm not exactly a luddite, but I'm one of those folks whom the weekly/ monthly planner book, pencil and highlighters have generally done a good enough job for decades. I hate having to sign in through services like Google (which has 30 things I don't care about and maybe 1 or 2 I need, but … Continue reading Needing Help from the Freelancers: I’m drowning in app options for task managing / productivity

In spite of everything, we’ve had some crazy beautiful weather out there…

I had to remind myself of that. So. Damned. Many. Times. Too many. I was feeling tired, worn down, depressed, annoyed, headachy, and just trying to find something--anything--to do. I didn't wanna clean house, and it was a bit hot outside so I didn't take the dogs out right away when I got home. Rather, … Continue reading In spite of everything, we’ve had some crazy beautiful weather out there…

Feels like it’s going to be weeks & weeks of Sundays (most of the time).

For those who've read here before, you know I generally HATE Sundays. I've hated them because of how some places just aren't open, or close so early, or open so late, and that hour between 2 and 3 just drags on forever. By the time you decide to go somewhere, everybody else has had the … Continue reading Feels like it’s going to be weeks & weeks of Sundays (most of the time).

Q#121–Where’s the line between Multi-Level Marketing & a Pyramid Scheme?

Over the years, I've seen a lot of "opportunities" on the web and on TV that have made me just paranoid by reflex. I never have gotten into home distribution or some marketing opportunity, though I've had others try to get me into them. As far as I know, nobody is trying to get to … Continue reading Q#121–Where’s the line between Multi-Level Marketing & a Pyramid Scheme?

Maintenance is far better than having to do a major fix later…

Funny how that could apply to a house or the human body--both, in my case. I mean, the maintenance part will work well with the house (working on that). The body's nearly at "gotta fix what's broke" stage. I'm not saying that because I hate my body or anything (okay, I'll admit, sometimes I do--a … Continue reading Maintenance is far better than having to do a major fix later…
