Photos of what I'm stocking up on for post-op

Sunday, January 04, 2015      3 comments

I won't show pictures of the liquid diet items, but I'll give you an inventory none the less. One of my problems is food allergies, particularly to corn, so all Ensure products are off the table so to speak. I've managed to get 18 protein dri... Read more

Trying to organize before surgery

Friday, January 02, 2015      0 comments

Next month is FINALLY the surgery on my jaw. I'll be out of work for 3 weeks. For some period of time, I won't be allowed to drive. I'm also the one who does all the bill paying and grocery shopping so I need to plan things out. First is... Read more

Things could be worse doesn't mean things don't suck

Monday, December 29, 2014      1 comments

This is entirely a 1st world vent with attempts to off-set it. Yes, things could be so much worse, but that doesn't mean life is all happy and good. My middle son is smart and talented and lazy. My side of the family has struggled with ... Read more

How this Pagan does Advent

Monday, December 15, 2014      4 comments

When I attended the Unitarian-Universalist church, there was a giving tree for advent. I liked the idea then and I still try to follow it. Back then they told us what to bring, so week 1 might have been gloves, hats, mittens, week 2 might have... Read more

December with a semi-fresh start

Monday, December 01, 2014      1 comments

This is not my usual fresh start when I've lost focus of my goals, though it does have some of that too. This month, I have a few different kinds of goals and I thought it would be best to get it all down on er, um, electronic paper. ... Read more

The best parts of yesterday with many photos

Wednesday, November 05, 2014      6 comments

Yesterday was the first day without the neighbors. The last day with them went about as smoothly as it could've really. The kid held it together until we went home and the family headed to the airport. This first shot is the photo of the ... Read more

Tomorrow will be a sad day

Sunday, November 02, 2014      3 comments

Roughly 3 years ago, our neighbors moved in. They fit rather well with the core group. The N family has 3 kids, the oldest son is the same age as the daughter in the O family. The son in the O family is in the same grade as the younger boy in... Read more

This was me at work. The other witch is actually from our sister company. The kid doing home... Read more

A weekend update, zombies, parties, and parades, oh my!

Tuesday, October 28, 2014      4 comments

This Saturday was a true test of the limits to my sanity. The zombie 5K. Just a reminder... I LOATHE running and I'm scared to death of zombies. It also was the same day as the annual family Halloween party. I still have no idea of why I did... Read more

Quick update and photos from New Hampshire

Wednesday, October 15, 2014      2 comments

First, Spot the tick. The nurse said it was a female dog tick and another group said a female black legged deer tick - probably. Either way, the meds should eradicate anything either one might have passed along. Those antibiotics have wreaked... Read more

The email I sent at work

Wednesday, October 08, 2014      2 comments

To preface, I have an immediate supervisor, a boss (boss of both of us, but I used to answer directly to him, so I always still keep him in the loop), my payroll person (who is also a work friend), and a co-worker who is friends with my dad and ... Read more

Sunday was all about taking a mental health day

Monday, September 29, 2014      2 comments

The weather for Sunday was unseasonably warm. The high temps were in the mid-July range. My husband mentioned we could drive down the Cape (Cape Cod) and go to one of the National Seashore beaches. Now I love the beach. I'm a little we... Read more

Check list for my 5k's

Friday, September 26, 2014      2 comments

Not so much a check list. I'm just trying to gage where I've timed in the 3 5k's I've run so I can make a realistic goal for the zombie run next month. The first one... Read more

What a difference in my mood

Thursday, September 25, 2014      3 comments

The issue with the orthodontist/surgeon was more of a weight on my mood that I think I realized. I knew I was incredibly frustrated, but I didn't see how much that frustration pulled me down until some of it lifted. Quick background for th... Read more
