Choices

Sigh, I don’t have anything profound or particularly funny – or even much of an update. I’ve been thinking about the future – mostly the near future as you no doubt realized long ago (tunnel vision R us). Anywho, I have several irons in the fire and one I’d like to throw in. Unemployment –…

I’m So Blue!

Well, in more ways than one. So, yesterday, I got a LOT of letters in the mail. A hearing I didn’t ask for (translation: the Dept of Labor has found a way to make sure that I don’t get any money from unemployment), the discharge notice for the bankruptcy, my food stamp card (yay?), nothing…

Didja Miss Me?

What? You didn’t even notice I was gone? WAAAHHHH!!!!   Okay, I’m over it. So, yesterday started off really well – got calls made, letters written, stuff washed. Still hunting for the computer tower – but otherwise, did not too shabby until about 11:30. I’d taken my potassium and when I suddenly felt bad, I…

Very Human, With Cats

Truth is, I don’t think there’s anything extraordinary about my faith. I’ve had a lot of kind things said about it but there’s nothing special about me or my faith.   I guess that’s true of Job, too. We think of Job as this great icon of patience and faith – he hung in there…

Okay, Yeah, They Are My Dogs

Beware: Approach with Caution: Preachy Girl on the Loose! When I started this blog, I had in mind to look at buildings I like, make the occasional observation from the ‘look guys, this does not work for me’ POV and mostly just have fun with cool buildings, mostly of yore. I still want to do…

Yeah, They’re My Dogs Alright…

Chocolate figured out how to get out of the backyard on Tuesday. He also figured out that when I told him to stay in the yard, it meant stay in the yard. This worked out okay – I could open the front gate without him tearing into the street and Rocket could eat breakfast by…

Recorder Meanderings

Today for no other reason than it seems more interesting than what all isn’t going on in my life, I am going to discuss my recorders, recorders in general, why I’m learning to play these things, plans for the future and anything else mildly related that happens to come to mind. Run away now while…

Writer’s Blockhead

Spent a lovely day at the house. Had devotional. Prayed. Cleaned things. Practiced recorder. Read. Thought. Cleaned more things (seriously, just how many times a day do you little fur balls have to go potty anyway?). Fed things (which starts a vicious cycle of later having to clean more things, I know). Played with things…

Poetic License

They probably shouldn’t give those away – unfortunately for the readership and probably the universe in general, I’m in a poetic mood… Ahem..   Love Lithe and lively, Gray and small, Bundle of curiosity and calm, Warm and loving, Softly on my shoulder lying, Or kneading my arm as I try to play. Someday, we’ll…

Chatter

So, what was a pretty good day ended a little sour. First, I finally – on the sixth try – got food stamps. Yay. I still have paperwork to turn in – so next month isn’t guaranteed but hey, progress. On the unemployment side, I just found out Legal Services won’t help me. Very nice…

Coupon Score!

And now for something completely different…. Because of the gastric bypass, I take a LOT of supplements – a lot more than you’d think. Some just help keep me feeling okay – others keep me from waking up screaming – neither is actually optional. I buy Rexall from Dollar General, usually on Saturdays ($5 off…

And Go It Sos

I think I panic too easily. So, looking over the paperwork, my bankruptcy was filed in late March – and I still haven’t gotten the discharge or heard from the finance company. It’s just a matter of time I think – but that is still a good thing. Anyway, I got to go to church…
