  1. Bad Times

    by , 03-20-2012 at 06:35 AM
    My sister is one of those people who I always seem to only see and hear from during the bad times in our lives. I saw her a lot when my mom was in the nursing home, and dealing with Alzheimer's. Now that my brother has had a heart attack, and is facing open heart surgery tomorrow, I have seen and heard a lot from her lately as well.

    I guess that I could call her more on the telephone. I guess I could try and visit her, even if she does live in the suburbs, and I don't drive. I ...
  2. 70 days

    My Disneyland vacation is just 70 days away. I am really looking forward to my four glorious days in the parks.

    Not looking forward to the actual traveling part. That is the one thing that I don't like about vacations. My flight is a late one this time. I don't leave Chicago until about 3 something p.m., which means that I arrive in Santa Ana, after 5 p.m. That's the latest that I have ever arrived.

    It's probably better that way, since I am traveling on Memorial ...
  3. Arrogant

    I couldn't believe what I was seeing the other day when I received an e-mail from my 2nd contractor. The last time that I e-mailed him was January, I believe. I also called him, on his cell phone. Did he respond at that point in time? No, he did not.

    This latest e-mail was more of the same. Excuses, apologies, and empty promises. I can't believe that he really thought that I was still waiting on him to complete my project.

    The man has closed his construction company. ...
  4. Some Day

    Life has been throwing me a lot of curves lately. There just doesn't seem to be enough time to do all the things that I want to do. There's definitely not enough time in a day to do the things that I should be doing.

    Years ago, I was prompted by my husband to begin scrapbooking our family photos. I started scrapbooks of myself, my two boys, and of my grandson. Those scrapbooks have been sitting way too long. Unfinished. I have completed many scrapbooks. My closet is full of ...
  5. Breakfast

    by , 03-12-2012 at 06:38 AM
    Today I find myself down on my knees.

    I have lived in my house for about 25 years, and ever since I moved in, there has been this carpeting on the stairs and floor of my enclosed back porch. Well after all this time, this carpet has a really horrible odor. Most of that I contribute to the cats that live in my 2 flat building. First my tenant with her two cats, and then my grandson moves in with two more.

    Now cats will do what cats will do, Can't blame them for that. ...
