How I felt this morning

October 31st, 2011 · 2 Comments

I felt like shit this morning. I had a hard time typing that; my father would not be pleased with my using that expression. So I guess I really meant it. But I feel better now. I don’t feel as if I am incredibly out of sync with things; I have taken my deep breath […]

This is not like Mr. Smith Goes to Washington; this is about the HO HO Man. He went to the Ohio Redoubt of the West Facing Cave today and is already mingling with the troops and giving pep talks. Let’s hear it for the Green Oh, no. I forgot the picture first time around.

Just like LZP

October 30th, 2011 · No Comments

Cameron, Summer, Der Bingle and I went to PetSmart yesterday, looking for Wubbas and more soothing shampoo for Shane. Der Bingle and I were in one aisle when Cameron came around the corner holding one of these: Der Bingle gave a bit of a whimper and sagged some. Yes, Cameron has the Rubber Chicken Gene, […]

Morning napping

October 30th, 2011 · No Comments

I am thinking of napping, even though it is early in the morning. I think it is pressure around my eyes – sinus maybe. I have already worked the Sudoku, checked the headlines, weather and  my email. Oh, the glossy ads in the Sunday paper? I don’t know . . . I think I’ll pass […]

October 29th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Hello

October 27th, 2011 · No Comments

I pulled lots of stuff out of a walk-in closet yesterday and threw away a lot, set some aside for Goodwill and – suspend belief – did some organizing. I did other stuff too. I was so pleased with myself. Smug. Now today, I didn’t too much, but it’s probably for the best because too […]

Waxing and waning

October 25th, 2011 · 2 Comments

For a period of time I will just write of trivial things. There is no purpose in doing so, other than in marking one day from another. And then I will take spells when I will write more emotionally. I suppose the purpose in that is just actually writing it down for me – making […]

Meeting new jeans

October 25th, 2011 · 1 Comment

I am adapting; it is not easy. New jeans style from CJ Banks. Actually, I thought my jeans genes were just fine, but no, the designers had to do a little therapy. More Spandex. First I thought they had just changed the cut – offerring four styles with MODERATELY CURVY on one end of the […]
