A ramble about the weekend

I had a relapse last night. And by relapse I mean several things, but especially my neck and spine injury which I managed to aggravate somehow just as I was feeling better. 😟

Sometimes it takes an American friend…

Today I went to the post office inside a drug store. They have a counter at the back and handle the mail from there.

When I was done, I wandered slowly back to my car which I parked on a residential street.

I didn’t want to go home.

Edging closer to the covid-abyss

Every night I look at the global covid maps. I want to see how other places are doing with reopening and easing of restrictions.

I leave America last. Sometimes I skip it all together. Sorry, it’s not you, dear readers, it’s your dear leader…😳 Continue reading “Edging closer to the covid-abyss”

Continuation of my drama-filled day

This is part 2 of this morning’s post. (Did you know I was making this a 2-part post? Me either. 😀)

***

I know some of you are sitting on the edge if your seat wondering how my anxiety-fueled 24-hours have passed.

Lucky for you I’m currently ticked off at my family which is why I’m typing from the relative safety (and isolation) of my bedroom.

Trekking toward Christmas – part I

Me and shopping do not get along. 🙄

Not usually, that is. There are odd times every blue moon or so when I actually feel like browsing though stores and looking at things, touching and trying on things, fantasizing about things and even very occasionally buying things.

But this does not happen often.

Now we’re in the first week of December and Christmas is looming. ⏳

Christmas. This is another thing that I am ambivalent about.

I have these visions of nicely decorated rooms, scented candles, cookies and other special treats lying about, relaxing music to listen to…

It doesn’t often work out this way. And I realize this is entirely my own fault.

I have a case of the If-Onlys.

Tuesday happiness

Tuesday is usually my favorite day of the week.

This morning however started off not so good. Actually, the grief carried over from last night, but I’ll spare you the issues.

I’m determined to get my Tuesday back. I’m going to be happy today! Or, at least content.

I have reasons for happiness if I can let go the crappy stuff. Like these: Continue reading “Tuesday happiness”
