Down To The Wire

Today was my bi-annual follow up appointment with the White Russian. In a nutshell, I’m fine. My blood pressure was a little high, but it was probably because I was worried about not getting there on time. I left work about 30 minutes later than I had planned with an admonition from Terri not to…

Let The Games Begin…

It’s July. The time of year when drinks are cold and asphalt is hot. When clothing appears to be optional and old men wear black socks with their sandals and bermudas. When sweaty people gravitate toward pools, beaches, water parks and the like. And every four years in July we have the Olympics. It’s also…

Flashback

Because I still haven’t taken the time to write the myriad of posts I have stuck in my head I’m going to cheat by reposting something from five years ago – May 16, 2007. Am I lazy? Yes. Am I taking the easy way out? Yes. **** Ten Things About Me A little while ago…

The first book I read was “Pope Joan” by Donna Woolfolk Cross and was fascinating. Here’s a synopsis: For a thousand years, her existence has…

Another Six on Saturday

I intensely dislike grocery shopping on a good day. I thoroughly loathe grocery shopping right before a natural disaster. But shop I did. It’s nearly…

Maybe, Just Maybe…

I mentioned in my last post that I have sleep apnea. I go for my actual sleep study in July so I don’t know how severe it is yet, but according to Todd (and Taylor who came to tell me he was home the other night but I was sound asleep, though I had been…

Back To School

I haven’t really gone back to school, but I did start an on-line writing class last week. The teacher is none other than Andrea, previously of Pass the Zoloft fame. Her new website is Life Happins. Be a doll and go check her out. Anyhoo, the class isn’t about the mechanics of writing, but how…

Learning New Tricks

This old dog has learned something new. Friday night I was¬†inducted into the world that is Bunco. It wasn’t the first time I had the opportunity to play the game – I just never really had the desire before. I’m not a huge game player so I always declined the invitations. But Melinda¬†across the street…

Happy Friday

I can’t stay and chat because as soon as Katie gets home from school, which should be any minute, we’re going to pack up and head into Philly. She and I bought tickets to go see Les Miserables with some Christmas money and we’re staying overnight. It’s not a weekend trip to NYC, but we’re…
