So, I slept funny on Wednesday, and when I woke up and tried to move my neck it was excruciating, complete with a scream and tears. I couldn't even get upright without help. I took a muscle relaxant, had my husband try to give me a neck massage, pain killers, and nothing helped. On top … Continue reading Bummer: Neck Injury
We've had a difficult time keeping our vanity clean because there's so much stuff on it. I cleared a lot off lately, but it's still frustrating, and I've wanted a shelf in the bathroom for a long time. This weekend, my husband put one in! It was a bit intimidating drilling into plaster, but I … Continue reading A New Shelf in the Bathroom!
I've been excited about gardening which is probably why it's snowing right this minute and we have three or four inches on the ground. But here are some photos of what I'm looking at. First of all, I'm using this garden planner to help me out this year. A close up of the spring side: … Continue reading Garden Planning!
I've tried a few different Keto pancake recipes, and I really haven't liked them, especially those with cream cheese in them. But I've kept an eye out, and there was one suggested on a Keto Facebook Group that looked promising. This one at Low Carb Yum. So I thought I'd give it a try, and … Continue reading Keto: Waffles
I love playing in the garden, but I'm not physically able to do a lot, so it almost always requires help from my husband. Unfortunately, during peak gardening season is when his work is crazy busy with meetings all evening, and it gets delayed until late June, and I plant everything late. I hate it. … Continue reading Setting Up Raised Beds in the Garden!
Normally, my house's cleanliness is directly related to my level of mania or depression. If I'm depressed it looks like it was hit by a tornado. If I'm manic it's picked up at least and dishes done, if not really clean. I don't like cleaning. And the only time I can convince myself to do … Continue reading FlyLady and Cleaning My House
The weather has been mild here lately, and while it isn't late enough in the year yet to plant without risking losing your plants, it IS late enough that I was able to talk my husband into helping me move around some of the raised bed bags I have and to mostly fill a new … Continue reading Playing in the Garden
Every Friday, one of our local bars has a fish fry, including grilled fish which is my favorite, and sometimes I really, really want to go. But I'm cheap. The meal is expensive, and I figure if I can afford to eat out I should tip well. (Often, I tip well because the people around … Continue reading I Want Fish, But I’m a Miser
The Ocooch Mountains novel's first draft is coming along - I have just over 35,000 words. That's about 1/3 of the way there for a first draft in this genre! I'm working hard on trying to make sure I write at least a little every day. Prior to this, I had written during NaNoWriMo primarily, … Continue reading Ocooch and Content Editors
I was helping out at an event this week, and I met someone new and interesting. It turns out she's a history buff, loves sewing her own period clothes, loves calligraphy and learning how they did it back in the day, and spins as a hobby. "Oh, so you're in the SCA," I said. "What's … Continue reading How Did You Not Know About: The SCA
Just because this game has SO MUCH eye candy, I'm letting you all know what my husband is playing. The game is Elite Dangerous on PS4, and it is PRETTY. It's a space exploration game that's fairly geeky, and the graphics are amazing. The inside of your ship with what I think is a Red … Continue reading What My Husband Is Playing: Elite Dangerous
Second practice from the Finding Your Voice class I bought from Holly Lisle. This is not an affiliate link, although if you decide you want to buy a class from her, you can contact me, and I'll set on up so we both benefit. *smile* She thought she ought to move, but the sun soaked … Continue reading Finding Your Voice: Practice 07
If you know me, you'll know I'm not a fan of Shmups (Shoot 'em ups), but my husband does enjoy them, and he INSISTED that I give Steredenn a try in two-player mode. I am, frankly, not very good at fast paced and fast moving games, and I have definite difficulties telling which character is … Continue reading Steredenn: We Beat a Shmup!
There are few things in the world that I loathe more than being late for something. I will turn around and not attend an event rather than be late to it, and this is a constant point of conflict with my husband and I. He wants to arrive exactly on time with no time spent … Continue reading LATE and How I Loathe Being Late
So, at work I make a ton of phone calls where I have to get certain bits of information verbally confirmed. I research each first request, call, ask the same questions, and have different processes depending on the answers. I've done about 500 of these phone calls (according to my stats) now, which is a … Continue reading I Sound Like a Flight Attendant #Lifegoals
My husband and I were talking recently about what the happiest periods in our lives were, and I strongly believe mine is Right Now. And then I thought about it a little more. Our parents are all alive. Our siblings are alive. We visit them often. In fact, every Friday or so we visit my … Continue reading Those Happy Golden Years
If you know me, you know that I have food allergies. One is wheat, which is uncomfortable but not dangerous - hives, phlegm, coughing, some wheezing, and stomach pain. It's the one that almost killed me years ago because we didn't know about it. I would eat wheat, it would foam up out of my … Continue reading In Good News I Did Not Die
It's a well known fact among my family and friends that I'm impossible to wake up and just plain stupid once I'm awake, not to mention snarly. It's bad enough that to get up for work each day, I have a bottle of caffeine pills across the room with the alarm. An old fashioned, metal … Continue reading Ring, Ring! And How I Was a Jerk to My Momma
My husband just bought a new car, and everything looked fine until he went to register it. Turns out there were two owners on it, and both needed to sign, not just the one we met with. So he drove an hour to register it, had to turn around and drive an hour back to … Continue reading Car Stress and Car Win
It's Easter Sunday (as I type this), and I have spent the day with my family, so there's no post for you, sorry! I'm enjoying a relaxing meal and chatting with my parents, brother, and husband. See you Wednesday!
