Hello Sophie

September 23rd, 2011 · 2 Comments

Sophie has been at the Ohio Redoubt and tonight she came back to do an intervention because the guys and I have just let everyond flop around on sofas and pillows – even Rose. Gone to pot is how she is describing us here. And we are not protesting. She will probably send us to […]

Mercy

September 22nd, 2011 · No Comments

Well, let’s see. Alison’s back was acting up and she had a nerve block and a bolt on  the roll-a-bout sheared off and Robert collapsed onto the concrete of the vestibule, smacking his cast.  We spent over three hours in the ER last night. Summer’s been sick for three days. But it’s a new day, […]

Cast again

September 19th, 2011 · No Comments

Robert’s leg is navy blue this time. Another x-ray; another inconclusive; another probing with very definite pain. Thursday he is scheduled for a cat scan; the doctor would prefer an MRI but since he has metal in his leg, that is not possible. At least with the cast on, the leg will be stabilized and […]

Wetness

September 19th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Yesterday when we cleaned the garage, we attacked the corner where some afghans, blankets and jackets were tossed after dirty car rides – or other dreaded accidents. And I started washing these big items now that the washer has been repaired and no longer bangs itself to near-oblivion unless babied with half loads. We put […]

Clean garage

September 18th, 2011 · No Comments

All three grandkids earned some money today cleaning out the garage. You do not want to know how much junk we had out there – and how much dirt. But now I can call the men to repair the garage door. And that will be one remote I will cherish. I was doing okay and […]

Ironically, I’m back

September 17th, 2011 · 1 Comment

When Donna swiveled me around to look in the mirror I was kind of nervous, but, to my surprise, I recognized myself – the old me. Well, I guess I’m now the “old me” but you know what I mean. Der Bingle came out to meet me in the driveway and had the same reaction. […]

Fall lawnmowing

September 16th, 2011 · No Comments

Well, I got out there and pushed my mower on the little lawn. I didn’t like it, but I did it. Usually, I think, “Oh dear, I must mow the lawn.” Then I do. This week has been different – I thought I would prefer to pound my head with a hammer than mow that […]

Hair continued

September 16th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Scizzor Worx – tomorrow at nine. Me in the chair; Donna with the coloring stuff and the scizzors. I am going to go with the flow – or floe – however you want to picture me: riding a canoe or sitting on an ice floe. Ah, my mind is tired and I am trending toward […]

Thinking hair

September 15th, 2011 · 4 Comments

Well, I looked at that post title I just typed and I thought about the fantasy ambiguity of it: If hair could think, we could all get smarter by growing long, long hair. Well, never mind. Yes, never mind at all. What I was actually thinking about was hair color. I am wondering if my […]
