Ok, it must be admitted, this tale of woe is probably at least partly my own fault.
I’d noticed that my beloved DVR had been acting a little wonky lately, with odd seconds of pixelated or blank spots showing up randomly here and there in recorded shows, like during Lance and Lacey’s Not-Quite-A-Paso-Doble-But-I-Liked-It on Dancing with […]

*Brief Blogging Break
The Good news: I’m getting ready to do some fun weekend stuff with J and some other family. Yay!
The Bad news: I spent most of Tuesday night (from midnight until around 5 AM) in the ER with severe abdominal pain and nausea. They think it was probably a gallbladder attack, although that hasn’t […]

I almost skipped participating in the Self-Portrait Challenge this week, not because I don’t still enjoy the challenge (I do!), but because I’ve felt so crappy the past couple of days that I couldn’t manage to get anything done. I don’t just mean photography, photo-editing, and writing, I mean anything. (***More on this at the […]

Mostly I believe in focusing on the positive, but now and then I need a robust whine. So. Something I Am Not Enjoying So Far About June:
Cicadas.
Sure, They (you know, those vague, shadowy, know-it-all experts on any old thing….”They“) say cicadas only come out every 17 years, but what They don’t tell you - at […]

Dateline: Thursday, May 8, around 4:30 PM
The scene: An office, where, toward the end of a very long and uber-busy day, our heroine (that would be me, because it’s my blog and if I can’t be the heroine of my own blog, then what’s the point!) is whizzing between one desk and another on her […]

Today is my brother’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Mark!! I wish I could see you!!!
That is the main reason I’ve been so frustrated with the weather this weekend. Not that I would have loved it anyway, since I make no secret of the fact that I am so not a snowbunny! But it was one of […]

I am frustrated.
I am annoyed.
I just checked myself for cabin fever and the thermometer said 106, which I’m pretty sure could cause convulsions, death, or at least extreme whining. (What, you don’t have a cabin fever thermometer?? Shocking! )
I strongly suspect my plans for the weekend are Snow-on-Toast, aka a big, soggy, non-happening mess. […]
