So, New Year’s Eve

December 31st, 2009 · 1 Comment

Tomorrow Cameron and I are driving down to Fairborn in one car and Der Bingle is going in another . . . and we hope to get the latter settled back in the Ohio Redoubt following the interpretative representation of “Planes, Trains & Automobiles”.  We will need to stock him up with food and straighten […]

Aha, it is cold

December 28th, 2009 · No Comments

This morning, oh about and hour and a half ago, I stepped out in the vestibule and grabbed a Diet Coke and a Coke and thought they felt pretty damn cold. Well, I just looked at the weather and it is 17 degrees, but feels like five. I suppose somewhere the sodas are not herded […]

A little of this . . . a little of that

Alison, Robert and Summer went to Indianapolis to visit Colin; they are staying overnight. Cameron and Der Bingle and I are here holding down the fort. It is quieter, although my little dance at their departure was almost jolly.  The cat is pissed – she is with her not favorite people and I must keep […]

Still Christmas Day . . . aka Nap Afternoon

December 25th, 2009 · No Comments

The turkey went in the roaster just before six this morning and, no, I did not have to do any cold water thawing. However, getting the bag of yuck out of the stuffing cavity was challenging. Fortunately, the turkey was already dead or I would have killed it. I have conquered the task of preparing […]

Christmas Eve

December 24th, 2009 · No Comments

Alison put in to “be called off” today, but she didn’t get it . . . so she worked and is working as I type. We had a real slow-paced Christmas Eve Day here at the house – I got my hair colored and went to the grocery for a short trip. Made some deviled […]

Stretched out in the sitting room

December 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

I am up here alone – Der Bingle is feeling well enough to go downstairs and had an egg salad sandwich and tomato soup and while I puttered around in the kitchen and crawled under the tree with sustaining water, he plopped his leg up on a chair and talked with Summer. They are still […]

A spike in my energy

December 18th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Yes, at nine in the evening I have felt a little oomph in my body, as opposed to a little ooph. Yesterday was busy with a trip to the doctor’s office which involved a really big wheelchair and a pulled-over desk to support the leg. After Dr. Warrener looked at it, he sent us to […]

We are home

December 16th, 2009 · 1 Comment

We got back from the hospital yesterday afternoon, at least a day earlier than we expected; the doctor in charge had determined one blood chemical level at which Der Bingle was to reach before being discharged, but another doctor  – slam, bam, thank you, ma’am – had him discharged and “out of the computer” before […]

Some excitement

December 12th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I’ve been spending the week in Fort Wayne at Parkview Hospital with Der Bingle who dealing with a blood clot in his leg. Knock on wood, I think he’s better today so I came up here for personal hygiene and new clothes and a Sydney check up . . . and now I have to […]
