Hello, Pals

May 16, 2013


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 disgusting!

You guys have probably all forgotten about me. It’s OK. No scintillating stories here (I do have them, but sharing them is forbidden by my employer), no personal updates, not much. I guess I’m going through that “life change” where blogging has to take a back seat for a while. I work all day and by the time I get home, the cats and the dogs and the kids and the husband need me. And I’m too exhausted to concoct a tale and sit in front of this dirty keyboard, lol.

BUT. My mind is starting to slowly — slowly, mind you — think about blogs again. Such as “What a great story for the blog!” or “What a good photo that would make for the blog!” thoughts. But everything is so scattered, and then exhaustion takes over again. Whew.

But while I’m here, I’ll mention a few snippets of things that have been going on with me.

The news headlines scare me to pieces. I do not like this new America that politicians and apathy have built.

My gallbladder is doing better. I had a small bout of pain earlier in the week, although I don’t know what set it off. I hadn’t eaten anything different! Then, I had some stuffed grape leaves. Oh dear, the GB threw a bit of a fit, so right now I’m on an all-fruit diet with water (and coffee, on occasion).

By the way, did you know that you can use those coffee K-cups twice? Yes! And they make a pretty good second cup of coffee, too.

We had about 2 weeks of spring (cool, wet weather) before summer hit for a day. Then winter was back for a week. Now it’s looking like summer again.

Working AT the USPS is fun. Working WITH the USPS is frustrating. Enough said.

I read all your blogs when you update them. I have them in my mobile phone feed reader. I am SO GLAD I got a mobile phone. With it, I can still stay connected to my email, text messaging, everything. I love that little thing. It’s too bad I’ll have to chuck it once the Gubment uses it as a monitoring device.

The family and I try to get together one night a week and relax together. Lately, we’ve been watching movies: Captain America, Thor, and Marvel’s Avengers. All are pretty cute although I do not like the sneaky innuendos that the filmmakers inject in the movies. I used to be in the acting/drama business, so I am sensitive to those things. Our favorite is Captain America. I like Thor because I like Viking history and because the actor is so good and funny. The Avengers is OK. We will not watch Iron Man because of all the sleaze. It’s a shame that movie makers put that stuff in there. It’s wicked to market it to kids. But no love lost, lol.

That’s enough for now. I’m exhausted again and duty calls. Happy trails, my pals.

    It does seem strange that your post frequency has dropped so much. But that’s okay. This blogging adventure should take second place to life itself.

    Good to hear from you again. I always use the kcups twice. Too strong the first brew!

    I feel your pain–I’ve been working more lately too and the stories I have from work….I can’t share them either. Which is a bummer because they are doozies.
