WHOOSHxThree

Lately I feel we have seen more (figural) money fly out of our hands than ever before; bested only by the WHOOSH felt when closing on our houses. (Figural money = numbers upon numbers of calculations, really.) 1. We are getting a third heat pump installed. Knobby’s office has long been a suffering point.  Think […]

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 […]
