How much pain…is too much pain?

My right leg; calf, knee and thigh are just killing me right now. I’ve graduated to 800 MG Ibuprophen for the day, hoping that it will alleviate more of the pain than the 1000 MG of Extra Strength Tylenol (3 times a day, eek!), that I’ve been taking. Since we got back, I’ve had 3 whole…

This life…

I can’t sleep. Lately, I’ve been so tied up in knots, that by the time I fall into bed, my brain just won’t shut off. As so often happens, it just races from thought to thought, memory to memory, unfinished chore to don’t-feel-like-finishing chore (and the ensuing guilt thereof), ad nauseum. It’s a never ending…

Coincidence or…?

Coincidence is one of those really odd things that you just don’t think about until it really hits you in the face. In October, I went up to my “daughter Tarra’s” wedding in SF. I always wear one or two certain pair of earrings–Pair 1, with rubies and diamonds in a leaf design and Pair…

According to my horoscope…

Not that I really believe in these things, but sometimes when you chance to read them, they just strike a nerve. The headache is at the temples and doesn’t appear to be going anywhere soon, so I guess I’d better break down and take something for it. The more I try NOT to think about…

“What is WRONG with me?”

I can’t see for the tears streaming down my face and I’m shaking, so it’s actually hard to type. Why is it, the first thing that goes through a woman’s mind with a break up; the first thing she can come up with for the reasoning behind it, is—-“What is wrong with ME?” This is…

Doing the Dance thing

Sierra, Skyler and Treena (briefly) when Sierra was home from college in 2011. Playing the music loud, doing goofy things, I know they’re going to just LOVE me for this one!!!

Lo-o-ong Trip!

Just got back from our trek to the Midwest. Took my Mother in Law to see her daughter Linda in Wathena, Kansas. Was quite an interesting trip. I love driving, done a lot of it over the years, been to California numerous times, Canada, all the western states of course. Actually drove from Quantico, Virginia…

Next stage of life.

Well, the last of the kidlets is off to college, now it’s my turn (again). Different set of priorities now, trying to have more definition in my life. Still taking care of my ex’s Mom, it’s nice to have someone else in the house, so its not TOTALLY empty nest! We seem to have a…

Ennui or…?

I just can’t seem to shake this unbelieveable ennui. Maybe it’s the female problems I’ve been going through the last 6 months, this new onslaught with the blood clots in my legs, taking a crapload of new meds that may or may not be helping. Maybe it’s the loss of a job I had for…
