Summer 2018

Posted on June 9, 2018 at 6:10pm 2 Comments

I made it through the flu okay, I've had a lingering cough that seems to disappear on the weekends. Go figure, at least I don't have to worry about choking while gardening.

I finally bought a new phone today, the Samsung S9+. It's pretty spiffy, and learning all of the bells and whistles could take me a few years. There's something in it called Bixby that may drive me a bit nuts, it's some kind of virtual assistant…


Feeling Better, but Not

Tamiflu, DayQuil, NyQuil, Cepacol lozenges, Halls cough drops, generic pseudoephedrin, generic guaifenesin. I think the Cepacol lozenges are what saved me by numbing my throat, my ribs are about sprung from coughing. The -Quils don't use pseudoephedrin anymore, thanks to the meth addicts, so I supplemented very occasionally. That stuff just works. My voice is, nonetheless, wrecked right now and I had to exercise it on the guy from the pest control service who…


Don't Count on Amazon if you're Sick

I am, once again, taking care of myself through a viral infestation. I caught it from Dad last Thursday, he had himself 911'd to the hospital for "chest pains" from bronchitis so I had to go pick him up and tote him home. He spent the 20 minute ride in my car coughing and talking, so here I am.

I should add, for the sake of clarity, that he is stressing me into having stroke symptoms with all of his bullshit. I have…


Four Days Later and Things are Looking Up!

My house is clean!! And my back hurts, but my house is clean!! It's not totally done, I need to burn some trash and go through the "stuff" room and sort my clothes, but I have a huge!!! living room. The table next to the sofa is clean, as is the counter in the kitchen where the TV sits. The cats are sleeping in their favorite furniture. Space is wonderful.

Keeping up a living space is never done, though, is it. It's…

I got a little too busy cleaning house and inadvertently deleted stuff I didn't mean to. Hadn't realized the comment on your post was one of them. Red's a caution. I wrote about her on our 35th anniversary in November.

Let me be the first to wish you happy birthday Phyllis!
And don't you dare worry about life's contingencies today.
Sit back and glide thru it. Think happy thoughts of
a happy place
all that happy shit they say you should do!
And DO NOT rake
nor volunteer

Do something life affirming & fun
like sit around all day on the computer in yer jammies
or something..

Hey -- thanks for the note, Phyllis !  Yes, it is a major disappointment.... I hope for news soon, but since the car's been wrecked, it's all over anyway. It was an '84 bmw and the clean body was why this 'old lady' loved it so much -- the teens around here love this old car, lots of them in town. Mine was just too tempting for that 16 year-old idiot...

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your reaching out ~ thanks again,
