  1. My Birthday

    by , 08-19-2011 at 05:31 AM
    My birthday is just 16 days away. I will be 64 on September the 4th. I don't feel that old. Well not inside my head anyway. The body is another story. The knees don't want to work sometimes. Especially when I am down, and I need to get up. Or I am pulling my wagon through a store, and my lower back starts hurting. I must make sure that I always travel with the ibuprofen, and the immodium for my nasty stomach.

    I don't mean to complain. I am quite content with my life. Except ...

  2. Summertime.

    by , 08-01-2011 at 05:08 AM
    I guess Summertime isn't meant for remodeling. Especially when one's contractor decides to take a 6 week vacation all the way to Serbia. Now, I'd have to get my atlas out to know exactly where Serbia is. My contractor is due back August the 15th, and 12 days later after that I am due to leave on my yearly vacation to Wisconsin with my husband and grandson.

    It's been hot in Chicago. Temperatures in the 90's. The attic isn't airconditioned yet, of course, so workers would have a ...

  3. Away From My Computer

    by , 07-07-2011 at 06:51 PM
    I need a break. A break from so many things, even MiceChat, which for me is very rare. I need to do things differently for a little while. Summer is a good time to get away, and rediscover things.

  4. Cautiously Excited

    by , 07-01-2011 at 08:08 PM
    Almost two years ago, on July 29, 2009, I signed the contract on my attic. It has been a real life lesson, and also a nightmare of a project. We are now very close to getting done. Work is scheduled for next week, that could put us very close to finally getting this project finished. Of course, it won't be livable, until the city comes in and inspects it, and presents me with a Certificate of Occupancy.

    I have been waiting so long for this to happen, that I probably won't believe ...

  5. Our Missing Cruise

    by , 06-16-2011 at 07:24 AM
    When my grandson graduated from grammar school, my husband gave me some money to put away so that we could take a Disney cruise when Sean completed high school. That was four years ago.

    Sean used to love going on Disney vacations. He took his very first Disney vacation, in 1997 at the age of 4 with his grandfather, and me. We had a wonderful time at Disney World. The castle was a cake, and Sean loved it. The Polynesian was a perfect place for the three of us to stay, and my husband ...
