Forgiving

Grapes on the table, unnamed furpuff on the shoulder, everything fed, watered and cleaned, a better ending than the start of the day. On of the blessings of Sunday is fellowship – that’s attending church for those who don’t speak Christian. I rarely miss but this morning I wasn’t feeling well. At first I planned…

Hints From Someone Other Than Heloise

Yeah, still cleaning things. Today is mopping day – I finally got a good mop (yarn mops are great for picking up, lousy for really cleaning) and we’re doing the whole house (we being me and the furpuff). Or at least as much as my legs stand up for. So, while I’m waiting for the…

Humpy

It’s that kind of day. So, got up on time, rushed breakfast but made it to the hearing (it’s a phone hearing but I don’t have good reception so I made the call in the car in the front yard – eh, it worked). It went – no idea how well. I made nearly two…

Happy Anniversary!!!

Okay, I suppose technically, a month isn’t an ‘anniversary’ but what the hey – I’m celebrating! One month ago today, I was blessed with a place to stay! Praise be to God – and thank you, everyone! So far, none of the other impending disasters seem to have impended. Yes, my bridge failed but super…

Then Again, Maybe Not

Not three hours later, the stupid mongrels decide to tour the neighborhood again. This time, Rocket got in a fight with the neighbor’s dog. According to the neighbor, he’s been able to get out, and the two dogs had been playing together. Until today when they decided to fight instead. Doesn’t matter, my dogs aren’t…

Dishes and Musings

I’m working on cabinets which means things need to be washed and re-organized. I do a lot more dishes than I have in years – being a single and having the ‘wash it when you use it’ habit finally established means no stacks of dishes in the morning. Unless you cleaned out a drawer full…

Bucket Bucking

Number three and final (thought I’d forgotten, huh?): Legal changes If I could change one law – set of laws – it would be those that allow Congress and state legislatures to enact incomplete legislation. The hodge-podge, Byzantine, irrational and flat out silly behavior of various agencies and programs is directly related to this. Congress…

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Court is NOT in Session.

I was a good girl and called in on time. I couldn’t reach the lady that had called me last week so I told the examiner about the call. She checked and said that today’s hearing had been cancelled (really? ‘Cause she came on the line expecting a hearing!), that I have a hearing on…

Cliffhanger!

When last we left our intrepid bridge, it was dangling unsupported above the chasm of despair! Well, okay, technically, friction was keeping it in place – just not very well. And it wasn’t exactly a chasm – and really, wasn’t despairing, either… So, I learned a few things. One, there is no live tooth under…

Bigger Things Than Myself, Too – My Bucket List

Number Two: Housing People. It’s an insane system that expects people making less than $16000 a year to spend forty percent of that – minimum – on housing they will never own. Minimum wage paid forty hours each week – the only options are find something better or work there until you earn more. The…

Quickie Update

I try not to post more than once a day but I want to separate the update from the next post. Anywho, my bridge just failed – but oddly enough, the glue is holding. It actually held for almost two days – a record. I’m hoping that means I can keep it stabilized with glue…

Bigger Things Than Myself – My Bucket List

There are things I want to do now – that I’ve become passionate about. Things I wouldn’t have thought of in the same way before. A better super glue cap – okay, that one I’ll leave to others but it’s the first thing coming to mind as I glue in my teeth for the day……
