Happy Thanksgiving eve eve eve eve ……..

Howdy, folks. Hoooooweeeeeee, I am still full from yesterday. My mom cooked up her always fabulous Thanksgiving dinner, and I ate wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much, like always. We had ham (neither of us like turkey), which is made the way my grandma made it, with a ketchup, mustard and brown sugar coating. SO GOOD. And theContinue reading “Happy Thanksgiving eve eve eve eve ……..”

Milestone

Howdy, folks. I hit a strange milestone today. It has officially been half my life since I was diagnosed in 2001 with my autoimmune condition. On Nov. 16, 2001, I was admitted to the hospital, near death. On Nov. 21, the day before Thanksgiving, I left the hospital. That was 19 years ago, when IContinue reading “Milestone”

Some ramblings

Hiya, folks! I’m on day three of my three-day weekend. It’s been quite relaxing and busy at the same time. First, our lawn mower broke. It broke before, and we went and got it fixed. Then it broke again, so we said “forget it” and bought a new one this week. The cost would haveContinue reading “Some ramblings”

Catching up

Hey, folks! It’s been a bit of a while since I’ve posted, but I’ve been super busy with the new job. I’ve also been getting used to the hours and my different days off. I am absolutely loving the job, though. I have been mostly training for two weeks, but I’ve been designing papers inContinue reading “Catching up”

It’s almost Halloween!

Howdy! It’s been a while! I started my new job last Saturday, and it’s been a very busy week. I have gone through a lot of training, and I’m really looking forward to really getting into things. It looks like it’s going to be a great fit for me. I’ve got my little office allContinue reading “It’s almost Halloween!”

Four months later …

Hi! Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I started this blog as a fun project, and it got to the point where forcing myself to post every day wasn’t fun. I was struggling to come up with anything to write about. So, I’m changing things up a bit, and I’ll post when IContinue reading “Four months later …”

Onto the next chapter

Hello! Yesterday was my last day at my job at the local newspaper. I am starting a new job this Saturday, and I’m really excited about it. I really loved the job I just had, but they were bought out by another company. And that led to being told that my job would be eliminatedContinue reading “Onto the next chapter”

Might as well be comfy

Hello! I’m so excited because my new chair arrived yesterday. It’s a really nice, big, squishy, comfy chair. And it’s so much bigger than the other one! And more comfortable. For one thing, the armrests are cushioned. The old chair has plastic ones, and my elbows were killing me. This chair already feels better onContinue reading “Might as well be comfy”

Staying put

Hello, hello! As you know, I got a new job and am starting it soon. I have written about how cool is it that I don’t have to move, and I started thinking about all the things I don’t have to do. First, I don’t have to pack. I don’t have to go out andContinue reading “Staying put”

Going solo

Hello! There isn’t a ton of stuff going on right now that I haven’t already talked about lately, so I’m going to share something random today. Up until 2018, I lived alone for my adult life. People would pity me for some reason, as if my life would only be whole if I lived withContinue reading “Going solo”
