Use it or Lose it
Sunday, January 12, 2020      11 comments

This is sort of my "new year new me" blog, except that it's really not. This is stuff I've been thinking about a lot lately, and it just happens to coincide with the new year. I'd like to think I'd be working on the same things in August if th... Read more

I realized I never posted anything from my Nov. 19th appointment with the new cardiologist. She wants to do the ablation, but I'm not sure. She gave me a few options from "do nothing and see if it happens again" to "immediately schedule an abl... Read more
Update PSVT

I saw the cardiologist on Wednesday. He seemed competent and was very nice, his nurse was really great. Unfortunately he practices the wrong specialty of cardiology. I know my primary dr. was just trying to get me in with someone asap, but he... Read more
Stalled out and health issue
Saturday, October 19, 2019      9 comments

After a couple of really great weeks of exercise I stalled out. I had parent/teacher conferences one week, so there was time prepping for that and then after 2 late nights I was exhausted, and then out of town on the weekend. So then it was a ... Read more
Wild hair in my eye

I know that's not the real saying, but it's more PG friendly than the real thing. I decided this morning that I want to run a 5K. Or more accurately, I want to be able to run a 5K. I'm not a runner. I hate running. Even as a kid I hated... Read more
Refrigerator advice please
Saturday, July 13, 2019      13 comments

I got back in town from a family vacation yesterday. Last night when I opened my freezer for the first time I saw that all the ice in the bin was melted. I stuck thermometers in the fridge and freezer compartments, and sure enough - the fridge... Read more
Monthly mini - January
Friday, January 04, 2019      8 comments

So after some thought I decided that my mini-resolution for January is to eat every meal at the kitchen table instead of some meals in the living room. I know it's a better habit, I know it's healthier, I know it's the way "civilized" people ea... Read more
New year, new you?
Wednesday, January 02, 2019      8 comments

New year, new you. I kind of hate that saying. Sure it's a new year, but I'm still the same old me. The turning of a calendar page can feel like a fresh start, but it's not some miracle of change. I'm not suddenly going to love t... Read more

Yesterday I had to make the difficult decision to euthanize my "old lady" cat. Her name was Jerrie, and she was 17 years old. My ex-husband rescued her from the back of a truck at his work place when she was young enough that we had to feed her... Read more
Let's play a game

Now that the weather is turning cold, and we are wearing jackets for the first time since last winter, am I the only one finding "treasure" in my pockets? Tell me in the comments what you've found, this year or in past years. This year... Read more
The tomatoes that took over the world
Sunday, September 16, 2018      6 comments

This is mostly a blog asking my gardener friends for advice. I planted two tomato plants last spring, and a volunteer from last year's seeds popped up as well. Between the three plants I have more tomatoes than I can use or give away. I don't... Read more
My indoor pool - and other summer projects
Saturday, July 28, 2018      6 comments

I live in an area with a dry climate, not quite a desert but close. A desert is defined as getting 10" or less rainfall per year and we get about 13". We had a really wet year last year, followed by the driest winter I can remember and only a ... Read more
I'm so cool
Monday, June 18, 2018      10 comments

I didn't grow an ego overnight to proclaim myself the queen of cool. I finally, for the first time ever, have air conditioning in my house. The installers finished today and I may never leave my house again. Ever since I moved here I've had a... Read more
So done
Wednesday, April 18, 2018      14 comments

I'm really upset tonight. I'm actually shaking. I can't go into details, because I don't feel right doing so. But I can blog about how upset I am and get it off my chest. This person did something that is just not ok. It's something tha... Read more
This is the blog I wrote instead of...

...doing everything else I should have been doing tonight. Gotta love a good procrastination inspired blog. Follow up on the Hello Fresh blog - I really liked the other two recipes as well. One made 3 servings and the other made the 2 it ... Read more
