After 9 years - home sweet home!

Well, it's finally happened, with lots of help from friends, relatives and hired hands. I'm in my own apartment and loving it more, each day. Only 1 drawback to deal with - several boxes came that were to have stayed at my son's storage shed out back. I have to get… Read full post »

Movin' on out and up

Great news, sports fans. I may be able to move by the 1st of Sept. or the 7th, at the latest. The loan was approved to allow me to do this and, hopefully, by this time, next month, I'll be in my new place. For now, I'm trying to round upRead full post »

It's amazing how quickly 2 months can fly by, even though one's not having a good time. I sincerely  hope it's been much nicer for everyone else. I'm at the top of the list for my apartment, and am waiting for an opening - which can be quickly, or a matter/Read full post »

It's cold and wet outside, anticipating what could be our last snow of Spring. I'm watching "Julie & Julia", yet again, and contemplating the past month's events. I've qualified for a major drug company's study for a depression medication and will receive my first supply tomorrow.

You CAN go home again, but . . .

Past sins have a way of returning to bite you in the sit-upons when you've just about convinced yourself, through absolute denial, that you've been absolved of them. Even though they've been handled, as much as can be, under the circumstances, up comes an upper or lower burp to remind youRead full post »

Hoping y 'all are enjoying a great St. Patrick's Day, I'm watching "You've Got Mail" yet again. It's a light, easy to listen to movie that's become like a favorite song you enjoy in the background. But enough about that.  My daily elements will be explored later, and I'm ready to/Read full post »

Make Yourself Useful

Discipline can free you from the tediousness of daily duties, otherwise resented chores, and wasted time spent on resisting what's unavoidable, anyway. But, while this is a positive, if not managed to help yourself, it can, truly, become a burden capable of pre-empting positive progress in your own l… Read full post »
