Dementia Is Very Trying At Times

It Will Never Be Decided

She Was A Good Cat

Writing Prompt: 12 and The Future
Heyyyy, everyone. I found a writing prompt that I want to try out, and it asks "If you were 12 and looked at yourself in the future, would you be happy?" The answer would be yes. Yes, I would definitely be happy. I didn't have many friends when I was 12 y
Cold, Wet and Miserable
Yes, it's a very British thing to moan about the #weather. But I'm going to do it anyway. It has been MISERABLE here today. No other word for it. It has been raining all day on and off, and the barometers in my knees are telling me they're Not Happy. It's
Another Sunrise, Another Lesson
The sun had not yet risen when I left home to come to school this morning. Even now, it is just finding its way above the horizon. December is doing a good job of hiding behind unseasonably warm temperatures, but the hours of darkness we are enduring gives

Why, Germ, Why
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a germ as "a small living thing that causes disease." (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/germ) I define it a little differently. Germ - an evil creature of minute size who, when joined by millions of

Arnold Addiction I Am Having...
Hey, The title of this post may sound nuts, but it's not a bad thing. Ok, for the past week almost every night I have been watching Hey Arnold episodes on YouTube. I've gotten as far as losing time watching it. All the nights I watch
The Precious Gift....A Folk Tale
I recently read a #folk-tale and wanted to share it with you because I think it teaches two very important lessons. Once upon a time, a #desert nomad filled an earthen pot with clean #water from an #oasis and traveled across the vast desert to presen

Make Like a Mad EBay Listing Maniac
My most popular post on the other site was about #eBay. I started selling my #unwanted clothes and other #household items on the well known auction site in May 2013. First off I had a 10 item limit, then a 40 item limit. Eventually, after a few months, I
-4c You Say
I knew when I arrived at work after an hour of being on my #bicycle that it was #cold because I couldn't feel my fingers even though I had two pairs of gloves on and my gears had stopped working with two miles left to go, but I had no idea that it was minu
Cold And Wet Ride Home
One of the massive downsides of #cycling to work and back every day is when it is cold and wet, and boy was it a cold ride home in the rain tonight. Monday and Tuesday this week were super cold days, but as they were dry the twenty mile round trip was very
I Sent Away For An Appraisal
A couple years ago while I was in Great Falls, MT I visited a little community sale at a nursing home(?) and I bought a couple of antiques from there. I bought a salt and pepper shaker set (unopened, cats holding fish) for 25 cents, an "old time desk" jew
It was bound to happen! I am getting sick.
Yesterday, my husband, sons and I went to visit my step daughter and her little children. My step daughter is my husband's daughter from his first very brief marriage and she has two kids ages 13 and 18 months. They are SO adorable! We celebrated
No furnace! I'm freezing my butt off!
It's in the single digits here as far as temperature and...our furnace decided now would be a good time to die. We are getting by with just a couple of space heaters and the stove for heat. We called everywhere and they are backed up and can't get t
Here Comes the Freeze!
We have skated through November and December with pretty decent weather here in the Midwest. Granted, there have been some crazy up and down temperatures, but considering what Illinois winters used to be like (snow, snow and more snow) it hasn’t been
Seems Like Our Christmas will be Rainy or a Stormy one
Well it is a dark #dreary day. #Cold like how Christmas should be but the winds are kind of strong and it has been raining on and off. According to the #weather #report another "super typhoon" is coming. I wish they would pick #summer or in the middle of t
Yay! I Caught a Cold!
Yeah, my title is complete sarcasm. Yes, I caught a cold. No, I'm not excited about it.I probably caught it days ago since the munchkin we babysit has been sick most of the week, but I really started to feel it on Friday. I walked to the post office and ba
Cold or no cold, the crates have to be sorted
After finally managing to fall asleep around 2am, I woke up at 9.30am feeling reasonable. Still sneezing and sniffing, but reasonably confident that I was capable of more than simply sitting in bed getting a numb bum typing all day. So I put a wash in to
Yes, it is warmer in my unheated house than in my aircooled office...
Yes, it is #warmer in my #UNHEATED house than in the super-airchilled office where I spend my days. This morning I put my #fleece on by 9.30am. 10.30-11.00am is when my #blood sugar begins to drop and I always get cold, but this was worse than that. Lunch
A Light Show in the Oven Canâ€™t be Good!
It never fails does it? Just when I thought I was going to manage Christmas expenses along with regular bills, something had to happen, right? Well, instead of going Christmas shopping, I went appliance shopping, but I guess that is Merry Christmas to me!

From Nov 18 to the 26th we have a nine day #novena to #Our #Lady #of #the #Miraculous #Medal. Nine houses within the barangay or town. Just the street of Quezon. Just walking distance. The #prayer starts around 5:30pm and some members of each #household wi
Just 226 More Members To Go; I'm Excited!
So, I see our membership at #PersonaPaper has #grown to 774, thus far. Wow! It's fun to watch this grow from just a few hundred (and most of them inactive for awhile there) to heading up to the first 1,000! And, when we hit that point, the member with the
Back to Taking Echinacea
I seems I was going full steam ahead a few days ago, but yesterday and today I've been dragging my sorry behind around. I've gotten a few posts written and done some interacting. But it's been such slow going the last bit! Yes, I know I've been fighting o
So What Are You Listening To Right Now?
Always been a big music fan. Never really cared for #musicgenres , always listened to stuff that sounded good to my ears. I have my preferences but I always keep an ear out for some of the newer stuff that's coming out. That's doesn't mean though that I do
Currently we are having a new awning put up in the yard. The old one was put up when I was only 5 years old. The year was 1967. Can you imagine that? Wow, 47 years ago. Amazing. Well, before I begin, let me explain. The house I live in is my fathers house.
THE OLD LADY IN BLACK
I have a story for you. This is something strange that happened to me many years ago. Now, before I start, let me just say that I do not believe in ghosts or spirits at all. So this story, although a bit strange, was an experience for me. And I actually en
