My daughter has a friend who is pretty picky about what she eats. A lot of what we eat she has never tried. My daughter and I both like to cook and mostly from scratch. We aren't much for meals from a box or jar. My daughter's friend has bee... Read more

In my blog yesterday I mentioned yoga. I do like yoga and how good I feel afterwards. I had found a fabulous instructor at one point. A friend and I would go regularly. She was great at encouraging you to not compete and go as far as your bo... Read more
Work/life Balance
Saturday, November 21, 2020      3 comments

I have been back to work for a month now. I am still trying to figure out a work/life balance. I thought I was doing well and then the time change hit. I am slowing working on getting it back. I really need to get back on my routines. Those... Read more
Flying Solo at Work

I got to the point in my training I am able to answer the phones on my own. It does feel good to be running on my own now. I was only working in two phone queues that were easy to handle. This morning I said I would probably take on debit car... Read more

Today is my dad's birthday. With covid, it proves harder to celebrate together. On Wednesday when I was off, my daughter and I surprised my parents with a lunch for his birthday. I knew mom was taking him for breakfast and being he is diabeti... Read more
Messing Me Up
Thursday, November 12, 2020      6 comments

I tell ya, a day off messes me up. Last night it felt like Sunday evening. I kept wanting to put my garbage at the end of the driveway last night. I do this Sunday nights since my garbage man comes early and I don't want to be missed. It fel... Read more

Boy have I gotten spoiled with my online shopping. It is so nice to sit at my table or on my couch to do my grocery shopping. The next morning I merely drive over, text them I am there, and they bring it out to my car. The only real work I ha... Read more
Ice Event
Tuesday, November 10, 2020      6 comments

We were to have a winter storm today. Instead some warm air came in making it rain. It poured today! If that rain had been snow, we would have gotten a fair amount of snow. One inch of rain equals 10 inches of snow. I am not sure on the amo... Read more

Covid numbers are on the rise in my state. The hospitals have put the visitor limits back in place. A local elementary school is going full distance learning as of tomorrow. Another school is going to the hybrid model soon too. I expect the ... Read more
Falling Back

I must say this time change has been rough on me. One would think an extra hour of sleep would help me. Nope, my brain and body haven't adjusted. All week I have been very tired. Part of it may be that it is so dark shortly after I get home ... Read more
Weird Weather
Tuesday, November 03, 2020      6 comments

Mother Nature sure is mixed up right now. Two weeks ago we had nearly 6 inches of snow on the ground (depending on your location). The 20 minute drive took me 45 minutes. Fast forward to today, we hit 75 degrees F. Tomorrow should be a tad w... Read more
Welcome November
Sunday, November 01, 2020      7 comments

November came roaring in like a lion. In my neck of the woods, Nov is typically the windiest and cloudiest month of the year. The first morning of Nov sure made that true (well, the windy part anyway). We woke up to a rip roaring wind advisor... Read more
Happy Halloween 2020!
Saturday, October 31, 2020      4 comments

Well it is Halloween. Happy Halloween! It doesn't feel like today is Halloween. Just par for the year. My neighborhood used to be crawling with kids trick or treating. My house was a built in 2000. When we moved in, it was a young neighbor... Read more

So 17 years ago today my life forever changed for the good. My dear daughter entered the world. This young lady has been a spitfire from the get go. My pregnancy with her could have been much worse than it was. Her dad was overseas in Iraq f... Read more
"Driving" the Computer
Thursday, October 29, 2020      3 comments

IT finally got all my stuff on my work computer that I will need. Being there is a lot to learn, I am still shadowing. Now that I have my data processing systems, I can "steer" the computer. My lead still talks to the member. I get to push th... Read more
