Owen and Marty

Knobby feels good today because he’s cancelled our Sirius. I’m somewhat sad to lose it, because I enjoyed commercial-free music and not having to search for new radio stations whenever we travel. But. Sirius has been incompetent at every turn.  Incompetent any time we had to deal with employees doing anything whatsoever to our account. […]

Revenge of the Scentsy

Weekend Recovery Day. I haven’t yet started on painting the last wall in the guest bedroom (you really have to wait for the mood to strike)(and the Minion to cooperate), but I HAVE been trying to organize and de-clutter that room. The trick to keeping spaces clean for me seems to be using them.  You’d […]

Bitter Pill

Two positive things today. 1.  I’ve just finished a run of Metronidazole that was prescribed while in the hospital.  A giant, uncoated, bitter pill.  (Just like ME!)  Impossible to swallow.   Oh, you’d finally manage it, but rarely before the bitter powder had distributed itself on your tongue and down your throat . . .

Merry Christmas 2013

I was feeling pretty uncharacteristically positive about the size of my face . . . until I’ve browsed the pictures that Knobby took on Christmas Day just now.  Whew, SCARY. But we can still picture-recap the holiday. Needed a dresser for the Minion’s room, and Mom found this buffet in an antique store.  I’ve been […]

Thanksgiving 2013

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. We had dinner reservations at the RedRockerInn with Mom, Dad, and Aunt T.  The Inn is a B&B, and it was a pretty intimate little gathering.  People all gathered in the living room and waited to all be seated at once in the dining room.  After we found our […]

Business As Usual

~YankeeCandle is having their Buy Two, Get Two Free promotion on large candles.  Time for you to stock up on your Christmas candles (or, whatever else you may enjoy).  Me, I’m Balsam & Cedar ALL THE WAY.   One’s house should smell like a Christmas tree for at least four months out of the year. […]
