One thing I have yet to conquer is cooking for 2. I unfortunately am still stuck in the mindset of cooking for a family. Out comes the community pot for whatever I can find to put together to feed the masses...except the masses are just the 2 of...

Rambling and wandering

1 day at a time

I had all 4 grandkids here yesterday for most of the day, and the oldest. this was supposed to be my day off. I love my babies, really I do, but not all at the same time, not when its dam near 100 degrees and the son is on his cell, talking at a...

things that make you go HMMMMM

I think I had a "there's your sign" moment last night.....well, atleast to me it was. It was rumbled about that one of our part-timers quit...not good, just for the manpower issue, not good because I really liked the guy...a gentle soul, honest as all...

ramblings and reasonings

I deleted a few of my posts after reading some of them. I know I didnt put any specifics(i.e. names, places) but if you know how to track a name, finding them wouldnt have been  difficult. I overheard a conversation in which another person was talking...

Observations of an old lady

old movies, or an old lady..

Today, because it was just too dam hot to go outside for any more than 2 minutes, I actually watched an old movie, not black/white old, just old for todays standards. Geez, I cried just as hard this time as I did the first time I saw it. "Urban...

I was going to try and get through the day without letting stuff get to me, but it circles around in my head and keeps coming to the top, why am I letting outside negativity get to me like this. your supposed to leave home life behind at work, so why...

Balloons... and the boss from hell

I blew up over 40 ballons with my son today..no, not by mouth, I would have been laying right out on the floor if I wouldve tried that. I went to his work with him and they do a lot of these "atta-boys" and give balloons to their people when they have...

Well, I'm working on it!

Today we got quite a bit done really, little piddly stuff, but still, stuff that needed to get done. I called the son and asked him if he had gotten the lab values from when he had to go in and have his knees drained and was he going to get them...

We r still here

Told my other half this morning that either we got left behind or it didnt happen... I have to wonder just who and why there are actually people that acctually believe that crap. When my time comes, I just want to go, I dont want to see it coming...

OK, so I went and had the "big" physical for work, the eyes, the ears, the drug test, breathalizer...passing everything with flying colors, and then we get to the physician..a dowdy little prune that acted like she didnt know what she was doing,...

Last nite was a surprise

Last night was my monday so to speak. My regular sup wasnt there, we had the Lt. and thats kool, prior to his promotion to Lt., he WAS our supervisor, so its good to work with him once in a while. He says to me, did you get my message????well, no......

It finally came in...sort of

Today I picked up my new tool, but it wasnt what I wanted originally, instead of the 9MM, I ended up with a 380. A little smaller, not as heavy, a little less kick, but it will do I suppose... I got it home, took it out of the box, drew the slide a...

empty nest.......finally.......

The last one finally left to make a nest of his own...thank god. I thought he was never going to leave. I feel bad about the grandkids not being here, I worry about them, but they are not my kids and not my responsibility. My responsibility is...
