Micromanaging

Boy this is so tough. I’ve tried to find replacements and I keep failing. Way back when microwaves were the size of small houses and you had to get little wind-up things to get your dishes to spin around (okay, maybe those are still needed), there were a couple of “high-end” microwave dinners offered at… Read more »

Loving, touching, reading

(Apologies to Journey) When we were last together, I talked about jumping into my New Year’s resolutions early. In the short span of time from then to now, I’ve done just that. The house is fixed, the car is beautiful and by the end of the week the patio should be upgraded. And everyday I’ve… Read more »

Crossing over

When did it happen? Was it just the trip or has it been building for some time? In my quest to get “back” to health, I’ve been attempting to get myself up to my previous walking distance.

GNABRT Day 26 – Nowhere left to roam

With the unfortunate (but probably inevitable) “item left behind”, this blog and tomorrow’s will have to be kept miserly. Sadly, I left my ac adapter to the laptop still plugged into the wall in Kalispell.  Unfortunate, but replaceable.  I tried this little town’s (supposed) version of Wal-Mart and it turned out it was more like… Read more »

Get it back!

Ugh.  That sinking feeling after you press publish, post, comment, tweet or send.  Then comes the mad rush to figure out how to save the situation. At least when it came to my books, people are required to plunk down money before they can see my blunders (granted, this makes them extra mad, but the… Read more »
