i'm going to share the cooking class adventure but first i want to talk about some things that happened with the Dying Daughter friend Anne. that were seriously creepy. now i've told you about her telling me that her daughter is dying. i began to be suspicious when she said that she spends wednesdays with her kid. just one day a week? so i finally asked her full out what the prognosis is and she said anywhere from 2 days to 20 years.…Continue
(i need to preface this by apologizing for not having read any of the very intriguing posts i have noted on the Main page. as you will see below, i had a series of challenging days and have now tipped over in to a Bipolar 2 Depression. BP goes in cycles so this too shall pass and all that jazz. but today, right now, it took all my energy to write this Cathartic piece. as soon as i begin to surface again, i will read Other People's…Continue
there was some kind of Error and i went back to the previous page hoping against hope that it was still there but it wasn't. is this my laptop or has this happened to anyone else? obviously from now on i will keep saving to draft and will keep backing things to the cloud -- whatever the freak that is -- and to Word.
well, whatever. i needed to vent and i vented about week 2 of the Subsidized Senior Housing Cooking Class which involved a big dose of Major Suckitude because of the soul…Continue
my wifi crashed. except it didn't. it works on my phone and on my kindle but not on the laptop which i used to write my superb post. i rebooted so it works now. but when i hit Save As Draft? not so much. hence my being pretty much devastated and homicidal. which has a lot to do with the fact that a week or so ago i hired this awful loud stubborn emotionally retarded Russian computer guy to fix my 2 computers. i found this sheer delight of a human on Craigslist.
and, yes, i know, he…Continue
(shit, i just realized that a freaking miracle could occur -- i'm a believer in the universe bending or doing whatever it has to do to makes this possible -- and some people on here could read my post. people who usually don't do that. i was told by someone who posts here that there are people who think my writing is creative. great news. wish i knew who they were, but, whatever. it's fine. but just wanted to be clear that i am Agoraphobic (AG for short) and that is why i rarely go out and…Continue
i am refusing to have a panic attack or to jump off something -- for now -- about this, even though it is extremely disturbing and disappointing. CC was doing so well. she had regular poop and she was eating. she was even happily chewing one of her enzymatic dental bones. so, silly me, i got complacent, let my guard down, and then when i got up today... Powww!
what particularly sucks is that i finally had an appointment with a Physical Therapist at OHSU (oregon health and sciences…Continue
first of all, almost grown gary cooper posing against a red marimekko background. he told me he loves scandinavian products and bright colors. he may have an inner interior decorator.
gary on top of his Kitty Kondo, tuckered out after surveying his kingdom.
my boy draped over the top of the fridge. this is a first for him. he is constantly finding new places on or over which he can perch.
kitten with his favorite toy. a long stick with some brightly colored feathers…Continue
so i'm going to choose to not be insane for the rest of the day/night. i got curried chicken salad. my chiropractor says curry is good for heartburn. and got canned pumpkin. apparently it calms a dog's stomach down. she was chasing the kitty. so we'll share those foods. my mantra is now: cocoa is NOT ella fitzgerald. she is not going to drop dead tonight. she doesn't have a heart murmur. one minute one hour at a time...
i'm getting very nervous. it was very bad (in the past she's had…Continue
