March 1st - reflections on February

Sunday, March 01, 2015      1 comments

February was a kind of big deal for me. We had one snow storm after another with no melting in between. Almost 100 inches of snow all told. I love the snow, but I was worried about it interfering with my scheduled jaw surgery (It didn't) and ... Read more

Wired shut for at least one more week.

It's snowing again. There are leaks in the kitchen and bathroom downstairs. Ice dams on the roof line there. Visited with the surgeon who assisted my DR during surgery. My DR got called out of state for a family emergency. Short versi... Read more

Well, we've gotten a bit more snow. No school for the kid today or tomorrow. More snow coming Thursday and Sunday. With highs in the teens, there won't be much melting. It's unbelievable how much snow there is. Read more

Post-op stuff

Saturday, February 07, 2015      4 comments

Let's start with the snow in the driveway. It's snowing again now and is supposed to go on for a few days, dropping another foot (or more) by Monday. There is no place to put more snow. Read more

Super Bowl Sunday ~ Last day before surgery (and perhaps another snow storm)

Sunday, February 01, 2015      4 comments

This is a quick one today. For those not following my "saga", I am having jaw surgery tomorrow. I've known I've needed this for a while (I've needed the surgery longer than I have not needed it - I was 19 when I found out my jaw wasn't aligned... Read more

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

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

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
