Colon who?

I’d be the first to admit that I have weird dreams but lots of people do right? Last night while I dreamt I was thinking about all of you, the good people of blogit. I am scheduled to have a colonoscopy on the twenty-sixth of this month. I’ve had one before and am trying not to think too much about... Sign in to see full entry.

The playdate from hell!

It had been arranged weeks in advance and happened to coincide with both of the youngster’s birthdays. Like a good mother I bought a couple of small gifts for our guest and some treats for the boys to enjoy. The boy’s mother and I were planning to go out for lunch and hoping to leave the little guys... Sign in to see full entry.

“Sorry seems to be the hardest word”

“Elton John sang the lyrics to his song loud and clear: “Oh it seems to me that sorry seems to be the hardest word.” I have to agree with him, in oh-so-many ways. I have never worked directly in the customer service world, but over the years I have learned that when something goes wrong with a... Sign in to see full entry.

Have you ever had this?

We’ve all heard of writer’s block but does the opposite affliction exist? If it does, I think I may have come down with it. I just can’t stop thinking of things to write about! While painting a small bathroom over the span of two days, I had to stop dozens of times to write down ideas for fiction... Sign in to see full entry.

Are you bugged?

There are many little annoyances in our day-to-day lives, some that can impact a whole day in a negative way and others that are brief irritations but nonetheless exasperating. Here are my two of the latter kind but feel free to add your own. Stickers of many sorts and kinds; the ones that come... Sign in to see full entry.

They sure is friendly!

It’s been said, (though I’m not sure by whom), that folks from the Midwest are a friendly bunch. I’ve been living in this part of America for the past seven years and I have to say I agree with ‘them’! While we were out at a restaurant we frequent, one of the waitresses we’ve had a few times came... Sign in to see full entry.

There’s absolutely nothing to do!

Last night I met Steve over at the hotel where he spends his days. He was working late and we decided to grab a quick bite at one of the eateries there. As a vegetarian, restaurants in the Midwest offer very few options but at least my carnivorous mate always has plenty to choose from. It was a... Sign in to see full entry.

What a day!

I type sitting in front of the television, witnessing history in the making. What optimism! What hopefulness! What joy! What love! The faces of those in the crowd elicit tears, tears of anticipation, tears from the tyranny of the past, tears of faith that equality and love can prevail. In the midst... Sign in to see full entry.

How long do you keep it up?

How long is too long to keep it up? Christmas decorations I mean. Do you take yours down right after Christmas? After New Year’s? Or do you leave it all up even longer? Because we have two Christmases in our house, one on the actual day and one early into the New Year, I don’t completely decorate... Sign in to see full entry.

What to do on a winter’s day?

It’s –13F here in Wisconsin with a windchill of –45F! I don’t mind the cold though...I always figure, if it’s gonna be winter then dammit, be winter! There is a puppy beside me who would love to head out into the great outdoors and sits pining at the window, gazing out across a yard alive with birds... Sign in to see full entry.
