Kicking the blues to the curb
Wednesday, July 27, 2011      14 comments

Since learning that my work hours were going to be cut and how little help I would be getting from unemployment, I was doing my best to cover up the blue mood this caused. That backfired into too much self-pity; and I am now doing all that I can... Read more
Not one of my best days
Tuesday, July 26, 2011      13 comments

Sunday was not one of my best days and late in the evening I wrote a blog about giving up. Shortly before that something stupid an insignificant felt like the piece of straw that was going to break this camel’s back. I had called my mom to vent ... Read more
A perfect summer morning

This morning I was wide awake at 6 a.m. so I decided to get out of bed, get ready for work, go in early and get in my morning walk before my 8:30 a.m. meeting. Boy, am I glad that I did because it was a perfect summer morning - temps in the midd... Read more

I had planned on writing this blog Monday but had to catch up on work at the office and home; and was so tired from the weekend and heat that I fell asleep on the couch. I then planned on writing it yesterday but was unable to due to a computer ... Read more

Yesterday was a wonderful day! My youngest son and I traveled to Duluth to pick up our new glasses and took the opportunity to spend a few hours on the shores of Lake Superior. I have always loved the lake and try to get there as often as possib... Read more
Not going to let the bad get me down
Tuesday, July 12, 2011      15 comments

Early Sunday evening I was having a major pity party and was about ready to throw in the towel. The reasons for the party were: 1. My yard trimmer bit the dust (in June) 2. About one fifth of the way through mowing my yard (I have five city ... Read more
An amazing Fourth of July and reunion weekend
Tuesday, July 05, 2011      14 comments

In my hometown the Fourth of July is always celebrated to the hilt – usually celebrated for two to four days. It has been this way since before I was born and I hope there is no end in sight for our annual celebration. ... Read more
If you could delete a year from your life
Friday, June 24, 2011      23 comments

Yesterday’s question of the day on a local radio station was “If you could delete one year from your life, which year would it be?” Almost immediately the year 2006 popped in my head – during that year I had reached my highest weight ever, my bu... Read more

Friday was our last vacation day and we tried to pack in a lot before we left. We took the water taxi a little over half way down the Laughlin strip, played a few slot machines, lunched at Joe's Crab Shack (awesome coconut shrimp), walked to Har... Read more

Day 4 started a little late due to staying out until 2 a.m. While we were getting ready for the day I received a phone call from a cousin who lives in Arizona, and was in Vegas for business. He invited us out for lunch and it was so wonderful to... Read more

We arrived at Riverside Resort in Laughlin about 5 p.m. last night. Made the rounds in the casino and checked out a few more. Lost about $20 (I am not a gambling person so that is a lot for me). Today we are taking a short cruise on the Col... Read more

Another survey
Thursday, May 26, 2011      6 comments

I copied this survey from my SparkFriend Yaminokodomo. 1. When was the last time you cried? I’m pre-menopause, I cry at anything and everything. I did have a good cry last weekend when I watched the move “8 Seconds” again. 2. Have... Read more
