Probably Comes As No Surprise

I’ve been blogging, seriously, for about ten years now. Ten years! It’s been so much fun. And it’s been not much fun, too. I’ve gone through the blogging blues, breakups of blogging companies and blogging communities, blogging for money and blogging that cost me money, blogging fame and blogging notoriety, and have even had the […]

The Little Things

I had a dozen little, wonderful stories to write here, things I’ve “saved up” throughout the week … but then I log in and I’ve completely forgotten them. 😯 They were REALLY good stories, believe me! Oh, well. The daughter snapped a photo of the first dusting of snow, last week. Those things are more […]

Checking in with some random thoughts. The blogs are still frequently on my mind, I’m just busy during the day, and by evening I am too exhausted to write. I will also admit, a bit guiltily, that I am really enjoying my life without going on the computer every day. I check email and peruse […]

This is unreal. This is the first time in about ten years of blogging that I have not blogged for such an extended period of time. And I’m looking at my computer keyboard with its dingy, dirty white keys and wonder How the heck could I let this go for so long?! This keyboard is […]

It’s Been a While And All I Have to Offer is Crumbs

For the first time in my life, I haven’t felt like writing. NOTHING. I may have milked the cow dry. Life has been really hectic and I’m spending a lot of time doing volunteer work for people in need. Did you know that there are a LOT of people in need?! I’m exhausted! Maybe if […]

Classic FAIL. And it doesn’t look staged to me. Ouch. But hey — at least that pricey windshield wiper is OK! *** I finally had to break down and get Windows 8 (required for work). It should be here in a few days. UGH. I’m dreading the change. I’d downloaded the Preview Beta version as […]

Postcards From the Hedge – Mr. Rogers, Russia, and Rice

When my husband and I were first married, we got an answering machine for our telephone. This was in the telemarketer heyday, in the early 1990s, and we were literally plagued with solicitor phone calls. (This was before I knew to remove our number from the public directory). Anyway, instead of opting for the boring […]

Boy, have I been neglecting this blog or what. You’d think I was on vacation or something. Well, I’m definitely not on vacation, but I have taken some time off work. Winter is fast approaching so we are scrambling to batten down the hatches. I am *still* working on the enormous bookcase project — 4 […]

Bad Night For Leaving Comments

Well I know when it’s time to quit. I haven’t visited blogs much all week so I thought I’d cram all the visiting in tonight. For some reason, every single time I wrote a comment on a blog, the blog either crashed, the comment system crashed, or the comment just never went through. And in […]

I think it stinks that Google does not include our non-Blogspot blogger email avatars when we comment on other blogs. That’s just so mean. *** Most email programs “ding” when you have new email. Mine dings ALL. THE. TIME. It “dings” out of the blue, whether I have new email or not. I’m still gullible […]
