Holy cow! What a way to wake up! I can think of a dozen ways right off the top of my head. A nightmare would be preferable over shooting pain. Sadly, that’s how my morning began. I was in that “special time”. The period long before you usually wake up, but for some reason, you… Read more »

Reading is hard

So, I spent most of yesterday in the hospital. Dad was experiencing heart pains and my Stepmom made him go to the hospital. Stubborn as he is, he demanded to drive himself. More on that later. Bottom line, though, what later ensued proves that reading is hard. As is often the case with my Dad,… Read more »

Challenging my waistline

Good gosh, the last day of April is upon me and I haven’t cooked anything this month! In order to hit my monthly cooking challenge, I needed a recipe fast. I have one, it’s just that it will be challenging my waistline. Now, technically, I actually have cooked something this month. I made a new… Read more »

Annoying things come in small packages

The cold hard facts

I’ve joked about it for years. Really, long before I was blogging. It makes for quick laughs, but it’s actually quite bothersome. I don’t just dislike cold, I’m actually allergic to it. Think that’s a myth? Here are some cold hard facts. I always wonder why I have physical reactions to cold. It has gotten… Read more »

Why not just walk in the daytime?

Yet another cold front is heading down our way. Of course, it’s right after we got a couple of nice days for my morning walk. When I bemoan the fact to family and friends, I always get the same question. Why not just walk in the daytime? I’ve got very good reasons for my pre-dawn… Read more »

Thinking about thinking

Okay, two political posts is my limit for the week. Any more than that and I’ll be changing the name of the blog from “Ramblings” to “Grumblings”. I think it’s time for a change. Of course, that’s actually the problem. Thinking. Or, more accurately, thinking about thinking. Here’s the deal. Basically, I think I think… Read more »

Welp, it’s that time of year again. The obsessing. The imagination running wild. It’s all about to come true. Or not. Either way, there’s no need to get all physical about it. That’s someone else’s job, actually.
