Nightmares

September 30th, 2012 · No Comments

I am not in a great hurry to go to sleep tonight since last night Der Bingle had to shake me awake . . . because I was yelling, “Help me! Help me!” Then when I fell back to sleep – and he had taken the precaution of leaving the light on, I dreamed I […]

You’d think there’d be a story

September 28th, 2012 · 1 Comment

After the whole work-up of getting to the bottom of the problem with my high calcium – to use a roller coaster of a phrase – one would think I would be chockful of stories of “the surgery”.  In fact, some even remarked, “I’ll bet this will be on the blog.” But, no. That’s not […]

Splurging on Mexican Food

September 25th, 2012 · 2 Comments

After midnight, my instructions are “nothing by mouth” . . . That means a “tiny sip” of water with necessary medicine.  I’m scheduled for surgery at noon. TWELVE HOURS + the amount of  time for the neckomy and time to wake up. So Der Bingle stopped at Taco Bell  on his way home and got […]

Done with mowing

September 24th, 2012 · 1 Comment

I did it. Mowed the yard and pruned rose bushes and cutback some vines trying to grow up the bricks. I’ve gotten better at minding where the cord is and where the mower is – no close calls today. I also am becoming more adept at planning how to mow so the cord stays between […]

The urge has worn off

September 24th, 2012 · No Comments

During the previous three days I’ve been thinking, “I want to mow this little lawn here.” Really, I wanted to go out, do it and get it done. But it rained on and off and the grass was always damp and the temperature was chilly. This morning the sun is out and the temperature getting […]

I was lucky the first time around

September 23rd, 2012 · No Comments

Little House on the Prairie. Remember it? Wellllll, I just looked up an episode that aired in December of 1978 – I would have been 30. I missed it and apparently I missed any rerun of it. I didn’t know a good thing had happened; I do now. Katherine was sleeping and Clara found the […]

Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse Update

September 20th, 2012 · No Comments

We have a new refugee here; she saw me when I was out today and, out of nowhere, she jumped in the car when I opened the door in a parking lot. She hopped to the passenger seat, gave me eye and said, “Drive, just drive.” So I did. We are not certain, but think […]

Shane, Pottermom and irony

September 20th, 2012 · 1 Comment

A couple of days ago, Cameron alerted me to a note Shane had left for me. (See here) And, well, then I left a post about all the Halloween decorations, and Pottermom left a comment and asked what about the important matters, such as Shane’s new Wubba. I was going to take a picture of […]

Casting the dye

September 20th, 2012 · No Comments

This early morning I am just about to get dressed and head on down to Lutheran Hospital to have the last two preparatory tests for my surgery – an EKG and a mapping of where this little tumor is in my neck. The mapping part – which actually involves an isotope and not a dye […]

It is Talk Like a Pirate Day

September 19th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Talk Like a Pirate Day used to be something something that showed up on special Internet sites and in blurbs by radio DJ’s, but this morning I awoke to see it highlighted on a major Internet news site. Soon this may be the next Wal-Mart holiday – meaning a couple of aisles of pirate paraphernalia […]
