I'm really not whining, but...

The guests I'd invited for Thanksgiving aren't coming so I'll be alone. People tell me to do volunteer work on Thanksgiving, but I've looked and there are no opportunities for people with my mobility issues. I've recorded a marathon of Thanksgiv... Read more

Chilly Sunday morning

Sunday, November 16, 2014      19 comments

Last night was the first time in years I slept in a made-up bed. And the first time EVER that I slept on 300 thread count Egyptian cotton. I may be spoiled -- not sure I could go back to bargain-store sheets after that. I didn't finish making it... Read more

Workweek is over, thank God, and I'm having coffee and getting ready to make breakfast. I've been trying to do decent cooking with a five-year-old set of K-Mart knives, which are now not so great (and two of them have somehow gone missing).... Read more

What am I doing? And why?

Thursday, November 13, 2014      27 comments

I've made a couple of decisions that are a bit of a struggle. And one is going to involve an admission I hope won't make you think less of me. First, my routine every Sunday is to watch the Snapped marathon on the Oxygen channel. If you're ... Read more

Tell me this is Friday night

Thursday, November 13, 2014      15 comments

What a week, and it's only Wednesday. Monday my boss gave me a list of insurance papers to print out. I printed them out and put them in her in-basket. Yesterday she asked me if I'd given them to her. I told her what I'd done with them, and... Read more

Turning to stone

Wednesday, November 05, 2014      19 comments

I can't move and I can't feel. Not even anger. I think I've just exhausted my emotional capacity. I stayed home with a bad stomach today. I didn't eat a bite of solid food until 5pm and only had one cup of coffee. I find myself doing that m... Read more

Do I still have a brain?

Friday, October 31, 2014      19 comments

I'm so fried right now, I think a zombie who tried to eat my brain would starve to death. Not only have we had all the usual month-end nuttiness at work, but ANOTHER member of my department has gone out on leave. Wednesday my boss chewed me... Read more

Is it just me, or...

I'm so crabby, I can't see straight. And I don't even know if I have a real reason or not. I'm on the Social Committee at work. We've been trying to organize a Halloween competition among the departments, with different themed costumes and ... Read more

Saturday randomness

Saturday, October 18, 2014      16 comments

It's been another long week at work. But my boss was out sick the last two days, so I was able to get a lot more done. My former carpool buddy has loaned me her spare car while her husband works on mine. I can't believe what kind of friends they... Read more

The Friday befuddle

Friday, October 10, 2014      18 comments

(Warning: This is going to be long and likely boring.) Today my manager told me that our lead representative is quitting in two weeks and guess who is inheriting a nice-sized chunk of her workload? With no corresponding raise in pay? But j... Read more

Is there still a point?

Saturday, October 04, 2014      23 comments

I still don't know for sure what's happening with the car. My friend's husband wants to try to fix it. I hope he can, because Friday is Sacha's last day at our job. Friday my boss asked me what I was working on. I told her I'd caught up all... Read more

A bit of hope?

Saturday, September 27, 2014      17 comments

Ex went home from the hospital today with some very stern instructions from his doctor. Frank can't come home yet because Glenn has to recuperate. Frank is in no hurry, however -- all those nurses! Today my carpool buddy and her husband cam... Read more

I'm exhausted

Friday, September 26, 2014      16 comments

On top of everything else that's happened lately my ex and son are both in the hospital. Ex is having heart issues, but he says all the tests are looking good. With Frank it's a caretaking issue, but he's totally not complaining. They put him in... Read more

So what's happening?

Sunday, September 21, 2014      23 comments

I've lost my sister and I'm losing my best co-worker who's also a dear friend. I've been sick and had the humiliation of having to be rescued by the fire department when I couldn't get off the floor. My boss is never happy with me. The last week... Read more
