At least we got a laugh
Friday, May 14, 2021      8 comments

This was just about the funniest thing I can remember, but I don't think the humor will carry over well into the written word. Dd and I laughed and laughed and laughed - I doubt it will seem funny on paper, but I also want to remember it, just ... Read more
So Blessed

Today I went with my son and his lovely fiancee to visit a possible venue for their wedding reception. They are considering two other venues, both of which are very expensive, and I admit I didn't have high hopes for this one, largely because i... Read more

I saw my primary care doctor today. It is quite difficult to get in to see him. Unfortunately for me, I am a very complicated patient, and a PA really isn't a good option for me, so I make the effort to get him. Not to mention that he also lo... Read more
Easter Day
Monday, April 05, 2021      5 comments

I had such a nice Easter! Last night, my son, future dil, daughter, and I all went to the Easter Vigil. It was long, but very beautiful. After it was over, and the final hymn sung, the choir went into the Hallelujah Chorus. It was SO lovely,... Read more

Short blog about a pleasant surprise
Tuesday, March 16, 2021      6 comments

Our school had spring break last week, so today was our first day back. I was ever so pleasantly surprised to have the woman who is in charge of school aides tell me that she had asked the principal if I could have a key to the Recovery Room, a... Read more
Headaches with doors and keys
Tuesday, March 09, 2021      7 comments

I wonder sometimes why I seem to be the only one who manages to have problems with door locking at work. First there's the Recovery Room where I work every day. Normally I replace another aide, so she is in the room when I come, and the do... Read more
There went my freezer
Sunday, March 07, 2021      3 comments

My upright freezer decided to pick Friday evening as the time to break down. I say this because, naturally, no appliance repair company is open on the weekends. And even if I call first thing on Monday, dollars to doughnuts no one will be able... Read more
Latest embarrassing moment at work
Friday, February 26, 2021      8 comments

This week, I have done after(school)care every day. I am always the last person to leave, since my co-worker has to clock out at 5:30. If there are any children not picked up by then, and there nearly always are one or two, I have to do the cl... Read more
Weather woes on Wednesday
Wednesday, February 17, 2021      6 comments

It's no smiling matter, but I couldn't help the alliteration - it just begged to be written. Things are very dire here in Texas. Millions of people are without power, and thus heat, during the coldest weather of the winter, much colder tha... Read more
Worst weather of the winter
Monday, February 15, 2021      7 comments

Today the forecast was for extreme cold (at least for Texas), freezing rain, perhaps snow, and general weatherly misery. But this morning it wasn't bad. There was ice on the car, and of course the ice scraper I used to have got broken probably... Read more

The school I work at is extremely conscientious about sanitizing everything. They have to be - they have parents to answer to. So when I work at after school care, as I did today, one of the things I do is disinfect all the tables and chairs a... Read more
Doctor's visit
Tuesday, February 09, 2021      6 comments

Today I went to the doctor about my vertigo episode on Friday. Even though the episode only lasted a few hours, and nothing similar has happened since, I wanted to know if the doctor could find any reason why it should have happened. I also go... Read more
Very scary
Saturday, February 06, 2021      9 comments

So this morning I woke up earlier than usual, and got out of bed. It was still dark, and I didn't turn the light on. I do know the way from the bed to the door. I hadn't taken more than a few steps when something happened to me. I don't reme... Read more
How I ruined the fire drill...
Thursday, January 28, 2021      11 comments

So, today I managed to single-handedly ruin the time record for my school's fire drill. At the time, I was mortified, but now I am finding it somewhat funny. Last week, I got warned that a surprise fire drill was coming up, supposedly th... Read more
