Valium for GrandmaPixy

I’m not v.interesting lately, am I. I feel tired, and don’t get great sleep.  I ache all over . . . at times my joints, especially my thumbs, feel warm and bother me . . . my right shoulder, I don’t know WHAT I’ve done to it but when trying to push myself up off […]

“Cest la fille dun roi.”

I suppose you have given up on me, I’ve been absent from the blog for so long. But I’m still here.  Just busy, or resting from the busy. I’ve had a little break from Voice, since the recital.  I resume lessons soon, and I’ve been deliberating what we will tackle next.  I found myself stuck […]

Whirlwind Week

We had a very busy week leading up to the Memorial Day holiday. There were doctor appointments, beauty appointments, Knobby felt like going for multi-hour shopping trips that left us arriving home worn out (Shopping is hard, yo.), I had my shattered crown taken off and replaced with the temporary new crown, Knobby got a […]

Charlottenburg

Nothing will wake one up three whole hours earlier than they are used to waking . . . . . . like one’s husband emerging from his ComputerCave at two in the morning — just as one was ready for bed — and greeting you with “Oh hey, so I just remembered the DirecTV guy […]

Spring Sprung

Whether we realized it or not, Spring has sprung. It brings a lift in the spirits, a desire to attack and air the house, and projects. The house smells of delicious lemon and lavender cleaning products.  I depend daily on: Method Kitchen Hand Wash (lemongrass),   Williams-Sonoma Meyer Lemon Dish Soap (my mother so loved […]

Forget Campers

I’ve woken up early this morning. I blame my tiny bladder. Laid in bed waiting for sleep to return, but that was a hopeless cause. Drank many sips of water hoping to eradicate the feeling that my innards were as dry as a saltine cracker. Gave up on sleep, dragged myself out of oven-temperature covers […]

Doozy of a Day

Oof. Today.  Was.  A.  Doozy. There was nothing special in particular . . . Minion played a lot, slept a little.  I think he must be going through a growth spurt because there was a constant sense of underlying fuss really close to his surface.  We were just barely fending it off through most of […]

Of Choirs and Carpets

I am having a devil of a time deciding on carpet. I could bore you to tears . . . so, simply.  I have always lived on a beige carpet.  I have never really had much say in that matter. For Christmas, my big surprise was Knobby telling me we were going to carpet the […]

Waiting.

Irked. I know that to all you every-weekday-workers with your 9-to-5’s will think this is a bit silly. But. I am an introvert.  I am a homebody.  If I have just ONE appointment on my week’s calendar, that’s a day I either dread or simply don’t look forward to . . . and after that’s […]

Neverending House Projects

I am all over the place with house projects right now. Mimi’s bedroom has long been the storage space.  All the leftovers and things to catalogue have been sitting in there, and slowly the pile dwindled until it was pushed into JUST the closet (and it is just a little closet, since this house was […]
