Sunday, October 12, 2014      8 comments

I heard on the news that the average kid who will be out trick or treating will bring home candy that totals about 11,000 calories. When I was shopping for a new dentist, I walked into a nearby office and was surprised to see a bowl of can... Read more
My Computer is Slowly Dying
Saturday, October 11, 2014      13 comments

My trusty computer has been showing signs of uh-oh. And it may be unfixable, and necessitate a purchase. If I disappear suddenly and for awhile, that might be what happened. I do have a laptop and will try to use that to bridge the gap until ... Read more
Halloween Zit, Trader Joe's, Portion Control, Weigh-in Loss
Friday, October 10, 2014      10 comments

It never fails; almost every year, I get a big, honkin' zit right at the end of my nose. No kidding, it's hilarious. It's not the kind that you can take care of or cover up with makeup. It's also the kind that gets worse before it gets better... Read more

Updates on Scale, Painting Project, etc.

Okay, I switched brands of paint for the fence and it's a world of difference. They matched the color, and this brand not only goes on easier, but also is more forgiving for unevenness. My last section of these two sides will be done tomorrow.... Read more

This is A Total Comedy, This Fence Painting
Monday, September 29, 2014      17 comments

So, yesterday I went back to Home Depot to get more paint. I discussed my woes with the staff there in the paint dept. She replies, "oh, that brand is hard to apply, no matter what surface." Well, gee, I went in there with tons of questi... Read more

Blood Test vs. Physical for Potential Job?
Tuesday, September 23, 2014      14 comments

Maybe it's just me, but I really think that a blood test is too personal and invasive by a potential employer. I've nothing to hide, and am in good health, but I feel there is too much information that is no one's business that is contained in ... Read more
Woke Up with A Bee in my Bonnet
Monday, September 22, 2014      14 comments

Honestly, when I have a grouchy day, I don't take it out on anyone. But I feel totally off kilter and everything looks yucky. Ever have one of those days? Even walking didn't help. I think I had a strange dream that left me with emotions ril... Read more
