Exhilarated Relief

Tremendous relief. Tremendous exhilaration. Recital time is quickly bearing down on me, and I have spent So. Much. Time. on my main piece. So. Much. Time. being from the first of June through now.   (We did spend about a month on Standards for a little open mic night at a cocktail bar/coffeehouse that fell […]

The Verdict

Friday, we had our second appointment with my Rheumatologist. Two weeks ago, he had predicted Rheumatoid Arthritis but ordered up a platter of tests for the sake of confirmation.  This was our meeting to review the results and begin a treatment plan. Honestly, I had not given the diagnosis a lot of weight in my […]

Push Me.

Between laying on my heating pad to abet this arthritis business, and spending one and a half weeks in a hotel with no pause-and-play. I have been watching a lot of television. With television inevitably comes commercials. And, so. It still evades my understanding. How a Ford Edge would be anyone’s “Fight Song”. —– (After […]

Well Bred

Ava died in her sleep on Saturday night/Sunday morning.   For twelve years she was the littlest lady in our household.   Never “just a dog” . . . Ava was more human than canine.  And attitude!  Ava had attitude.   I brought her home from the breeder, and we lived in Mimi’s basement apartment. […]

Happy Birthday Week

Busy busy busy. Mother’s Day, then my Birthday. A squirrel on the power line prevented us from making church on Mother’s Day, and on my birthday I had to get up early for a hair cut and color, then visit to my doctor. The doctor’s visit was quite a rigamarole.  At my last appointment, I […]

Stick a Pin in me, I’m done.

Yes, you’re right. I disappeared. There we were recapping our jaunt to Atlanta in over five the times it actually TOOK TO MAKE THE TRIP, and I left you before the final installment. You know what it was? We went to IKEA.  Yes.  Bow down to the almighty IKEA. And I got so excited about […]

Atlanta: Two

After failing at the Lenox Square Mall Closing Time guessing game, (that should be trademarked) we made our way to our hotel and checked in somewhere between 9:30 and 10. We had been back and forth our typical 21254 times about the hotel. Knobby learned there would be travelling that would require a passport. He […]

Sunday ShortList

Weekend Recap: Let’s see . . . We: 1.  Picked up my carpet samples from the second store on Friday with about five minutes to spare before closing time.  Took them to the first store for comparison.  Took approximately 32983654 pictures so could debate further when home. 2.  Despite this and carrying them all around […]

Service Singalong

Well, we’re not getting the Jeep back today, either. It had been intermittently (but more often than not) been popping up a “Service needed for 4×4” message on the dash, and disabling the traction control.  The message was annoying, and obviously the traction disabling didn’t make me think comfy thoughts about riding in it, either. […]

Auto-Pilot

The recital. The recital . . . was disappointing.  I did not do my best.  Anywhere near my best. We were stressed beforehand.  I was upstairs getting ready . . . and this was full-makeup, hair-in-hot-rollers kind of getting ready.  Minion was downstairs as I was attempting to figure out what to wear (AKA:  Destroying […]
