MARCHOne year ago, on March 16, I had an eye doctor appointment. I remember the news becoming more and moreContinue reading “Marking one year”

Sing it with me: Oh whoa whoa, I got those winter blues …

Hello! It’s still winter. And this has been quite a wintry winter. Last winter, it was really mild, and we didn’t have much snow at all. This year, though, it has snowed a million times, including last night. It’s still snowing today. Granted, we haven’t gotten a lot of accumulation (knock on wood), but theContinue reading “Sing it with me: Oh whoa whoa, I got those winter blues …”

2020 hindsight: Part two

Hello! I was going to make this hindsight summary just one post, but man, I really don’t know how to shut up. So many words! Hahahaha, so here’s part two. (Part one here) July: I set up my blog on June 30, but I really didn’t get into it until July. And I loved it.Continue reading “2020 hindsight: Part two”

2020 hindsight: Part one

Hello! I hope everyone had nice holiday. I sure did. I am looking forward to saying goodbye to 2020. I know that a new year won’t make everything magically OK, but it sure will be nice to kick 2020 to the curb.

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.

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 …”

Right steps, slow results

Hello, hello, hello. It’s been such a stressful week. It’s been good stress mixed with bad stress, but, unfortunately, there has been more bad stress. A couple people were laid off at work. And guess who gets to do their jobs? The copy desk. And guess who is also getting laid off sometime soon? TheContinue reading “Right steps, slow results”

Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies

Good afternoon, everyone! I finally got a chance to sleep in today, and it was glorious. And it’s a beautiful, cloudless day today! You may recall that I wrote a post recently about how difficult it is to hire contractors. My mom was trying to get someone here to trim three trees. Well, she finallyContinue reading “Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies”

Busy, busy, busy!

Howdy, folks! I’m so busy today that I almost forgot to write a post. So, this will be short, as I haven’t eaten yet, and I need to take my meds! First, my shoulder is doing MUCH better today. It’s just sore from being so inflamed yesterday. But I can lift my arm again, whichContinue reading “Busy, busy, busy!”
