I Forgot To Pause

Spouting riposte to a criticism or a comment with which I disagree is one thing I usually quickly rue. I am definitely one that needs to pause and to consider, and not say what had first come to mind. I try to watch that, but I am so, so human and my tongue often flaps at both ends before I stop to...

Thinking Up Stuff

Used to, when I was out and about (I'm holed up here at the time being), it wasn't too difficult to think up interesting things to write about. My favorite was to go out to breakfast on the way home from work (I was a nurse on the graveyard shift) carrying a book and a pad of paper and a pen. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Diary Of An Injured Grandma

It was eight days ago I fell and broke my rib. In all that time since, I have managed to refrain from coughing (because that is very painful) by faithfully using my Aerobika to keep my lungs open and to breathe deeply. Also, in all that time, I have not sneezed, not once...until just a few minutes... Sign in to see full entry.

No Place To Hide

What do you do with a phone pest? Yes he is kin. Yes I love him, but I just don't want to talk to him again today. How do I not hurt his feelings but get rid of him for now without telling him some kind of lies? He thinks he is the authority on everything. He, like, interogates for every detail of...

It's Not An April Fool's Joke

In addition to my falling and breaking my rib, Ribcage fell and broke his leg (upper femur) so we are both stove in. He is a bit grouchy about that and I don't blame him. I'm still trying not to cough or sneeze or hiccup or laugh. Needless to say, I am not entertaining anyone for Easter Dinner. Snow... Sign in to see full entry.

Potential Threats

Worry -- the thoughts, images, and emotions of a negative nature in a repetitive, uncontrollable manner that results from a proactive cognitive risk analysis made to avoid or solve anticipated potential threats and their potential consequences. Today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday.... Sign in to see full entry.

Poor Ribcage

It is not easy for a man to live with his aged mother and feel the pressure of her getting old and decrepit and helpless, and feel he has to take care of her when he already has problems of his own. His health problems center around his lower back and lifting, so he is not a whole lot of good in... Sign in to see full entry.

Oh Boy

Opening Day at the Kauffman Stadium, the Kansas City Royals baseball team's home turf. It's busy, busy with activity, fun and happy fans. Cooking from the tailgates is going strong, and even though I am squatting at home I think the pleasant aromas are floating clear across the river and up the hill... Sign in to see full entry.

You wouldn't believe how difficult it was for me to get out of bed this morning--not because I was sleepy, or lazy, not because there was a lion in the streets, but because every time I moved any part of me a screech would emanate from my depths and I would cease all movement and clutch the pillow...

Dreamy Santorini

A man thinks a woman has nothing to do when she is home alone. He does not understand that home alone is a haven from the outside world, and a place that a woman loves, where her interests lie, and her imagination soars. It is a place that always needs something done or a place to rest from doing.... Sign in to see full entry.
