Catch Up

It's been a busy week.  I've gotten some of my writing stuff done but mostly spent time with family.  My daughters came to visit.  We played this new game called Ticket to Ride.  It was fun.  On the surface it was simple - pick tickets and build your trains from one station to the next. … Continue reading Catch Up

Long Weekend

Three days off was nice but it makes for an odd start to the week.  It's Tuesday already and I feel like I'm behind but I'm not. The weekend was busy.  Vicki and I did the errands.  This included grocery shopping, visit to the butcher, Walmart, Aldis, and Hobby Lobby.  We grabbed lunch on the run … Continue reading Long Weekend

Grumpiness Abounds

It's been a week.  The weather changed and my pain level is up.  I try to remember this most days but sort of lost it at work.  My student worker got to listen to me complain and curse.  I apologized it shouldn't have happened.  I did close my door, call my sister and complain to … Continue reading Grumpiness Abounds

Long Long Day

Ken left for Georgia yesterday.  Vicki and I took him to the airport at 3:30 in the morning.  This meant we were up at 2:30. Not being a morning person, this was not a great start to the day.  Vicki and I were home by 6:00 but we didn't come back and go back to … Continue reading Long Long Day

Back to the Routine

It's a normal pay weekend.  I've gotten up, paid bills, talked to one daughter, and am about to head out to run errands. Once the errands are done, I'm going to be sitting at the computer to work on several projects.  I'm avoiding my phone which is telling me the two games I've been playing … Continue reading Back to the Routine

Errands are run.  Coupons are clipped.  Ken will grocery shop tomorrow.  Once I get up, we will prep the meat we got for the freezer and hopefully prep stuff for breakfast and lunches next week. A headache has settled in the last few days.  At times, it is migraine level and at others it is … Continue reading Drawing to an End
