The Friday after

I stayed home with a hammering headache today. The car interior has two days to dry out, then we get a new storm on Monday. Meantime, I'm feeling kind of draggy and out of it.... Read more

How rainy is it?

Some old dude was lining up pairs of animals outside my apartment. Well, not quite. But we've had flooding and my office closed early today. I drive to and from work every day on Lakeville road, and today it definitely lived up to that name... Read more

A little good, a little bad

On the up-side, my boss has actually gone three days without chewing me out for anything. She continues to pile on the work, but at least she hasn't jumped all over me. It's a pleasant switch. The Blue Bombshell developed a bit of a hiccup.... Read more

Rainy Monday evening

Monday, December 08, 2014      16 comments

Well, I think my Blue Bombshell was a bit taken aback that her ten-month vacation was over! I was sure she was bound for Pick-N-Pull, but thanks to Sacha, her husband and their friend it runs like a dream. You wouldn't think a 21yo car could run... Read more

I'm stunned right now

Oh, my God. My former carpool buddy Sacha came by tonight. Back in September she and her husband took my nonworking car and said he'd "take a look at it." They also loaned me their second car for the three months they had it. Tonight she gave me... Read more

I owe everybody an apology

Saturday, December 06, 2014      22 comments

I know I've been completely AWOL lately. There's no excuse, but there are reasons. This is going to be a long, whining vent, so please feel free to ignore it. I feel like I'm one step from the edge of the cliff. I know nobody gets everythin... Read more

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

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

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
