Preparing for the unknown

My heart is elsewhere this week.  Not that I don’t want to write, but I just don’t have the mental capacity to put together anything substantial.  I’m just so incredibly tired.  I can’t believe this time last year I was preparing for my own surgery and here I am less than a year later find […]

Buffets and my introduction to 7 Spice

With Comfort Food on the brain, I’ve been dreaming of deep-fried falafel stuffed into pita and drenched with tahini sauce.  While we’re here we might as well throw in some baba ganoush and hummus on the side, right?  I mean, if you’re going to dream, you’d might as well dream big! Just for fun, I […]

Gratitude Photo Friday

You may remember reading about my recent altercation with a certain male duck who was trying to mate with a female while she was tending to her young. After that evening Mama and ducklings just disappeared – like, for days and days. I found myself worrying a bit;  then yesterday here they came, swimming downstream. […]

The impatient patient

Over the past couple of weeks now, Craig and I have been either at a doctor’s office, at the Emergency Room or at the office of a specialist.  We’ve done more waiting than the doctor’s have done searching.  During my practice of Patient Patience, I’ve entertained myself with a comedy bit by Jerry Seinfeld from […]

Continuing to wait

I am continually amazed by how my husband and I handle a crisis.  Like clockwork and without fail, whenever I’m ill he is well enough to care for me.  When he has fallen ill, it’s generally around the time I begin feeling better from whatever has been ailing me.  The only time I can think […]

The Good, the Bad–and the Night of a Thousand Waterfalls

I’ve got the Good, the Bad and the Ugly all over the place this week – take your pick: The Good~ my back is getting better.  It is finally happening.  I am a happy camper about this news, and I don’t mind saying that it’s about darned time.  The Good and the Bad – Craig […]

Reclaim what is mine.

Did you all have a great holiday yesterday? Anyone get any snow for Christmas?  We did not, however since this is Indiana, I’m sure that we will soon have more than we can handle.  I found the jar that I’m going to use for our HL Challenge exercise in January.  Now all I need to […]

Heave Ho: My Syrup of Ipecac Story

“You mean you’ve been blogging for over two years and you’ve never shared the Chicken Story?” asks my husband, in disbelief.  Someone please tell me, when is it appropriate to write a good vomit story?  “Anytime is a good time!” laughs Craig.  My view is this: there are stories that deserve to be shared in […]

Purging a Secret

Part of a text conversation between me and Craig on Friday:  Me:  I made a big mistake. Craig: What happened? Me:  I ate the expired yogurt.  Think I’m going to vomit. Craig:  Oh, no.  How long ago did you eat it? Me:  3 hrs Craig:  Right on schedule.  Better to vomit. Me:  No! As I […]

Over 4 Decades of Bucket Lists

My Life-Long bucket list:  From the seventies (ages 1-9):  1.  Marry Mac Davis.  2.  Rescue abused animals from circuses and take care of them on my big farm. 3.  Never, ever have to clean my room again. **Progress Note**  I didn’t get any of these things crossed off my bucket list.  I know you were […]
