Happy Birthday Dad! Love you lots! (posting is gonna be light folks, as I am cramming)
I've done a lot of getting up early and a lot of driving this weekend and I'm a bit tired. I made stops in the majority of the towns dotting Weakley County this weekend, and some places were blessed/cursed with my presence multiple times. I accomplished a lot though and got to visit my other grandparents who I've felt... Continue Reading →
Here's a timely photo (although bad quality) plucked out of my mother's photo box last weekend. My brother and I in our amazingly creative and original Halloween costumes. I have no idea what year it is but aren't we a pair? Of what, I'm not so sure. What do you think I am here? A pirate,... Continue Reading →
Where would we be without computers? I for one, would be in a much happier place this week. We've been having major trouble with a certain website that our livelihoods depend on at the-place-that-shall-not-be-named and it has been driving me batty (excellent use of a Halloween pun don't you think?). All this trouble in cyberland got... Continue Reading →
I'm on edge this week. I've had a headache and stiff muscles for three days now. I wake up with a headache that tylenol won't ease and a tenseness in my neck and shoulders that doesn't go away. I would say it has something to do with the weather but I usually love dreary rainy days like... Continue Reading →
My grandmother is doing well according to the doctors and was discharged from the hospital yesterday and transferred to a rehab facility. She'll be there for a few weeks and I guess we'll go from there. It's hard to still think of yourself as a kid and to watch the adults in your life age... Continue Reading →
I know I said I wasn't going to speak of this again but I feel I must share this valuable information with you that you might not be aware of; a public service announcement if you will. Apparently when you grow up, become an adult and have been an active participant in the "real world"... Continue Reading →
Fridays make me a happy girl. I haven't felt well today though and if it weren't for it being Friday, I think I might have bitten someone's head off. I still might so watch out. It's late and I really should be asleep since I'm driving to Weakley tomorrow to see my grandma in the... Continue Reading →
Those Nationwide commercials with the slogan "Life comes at you fast" are so true aren't they? Yesterday I was cooking supper, er, well, ok so I was on the phone ordering pizza and I received a call on the other line. As a complete aside here, you should know that I loathe call waiting. I think it is a tool of Satan. ... Continue Reading →
In spite of the warm weather it cannot be avoided. They will not be denied and will never be defeated no matter how hard we try. It comes around each year and yet, the first one to make an appearance shocks me every time. It's time for the onslaught of those very loud and quite... Continue Reading →
Dogs are gross. Cooper can stink up a room with some of the most horrendous passing of the gas you've ever had waft by your nose. Oh my goodness. I think some of the treats we bought don't agree with him. And the humping of his bed isn't too pretty either. He's a disgusting creature and if... Continue Reading →
It could not have been a better weekend weather wise for the Southern Festival of Books. Mom, Bro, Scout and I headed for the big city Saturday morning and spent the next six hours perusing tents full of every type book imaginable and listening to author discussions and readings. I felt quite intellectual afterwards. 🙂 There was a good... Continue Reading →
If your weekend plans happen to include the Southern Festival of Books be sure to stop by the booth of the Williamson County Council for the Written Word and check out Muscadine Lines. The anthology contains the writings of contributors to the online magazine, Muscadine Lines: A Southern Journal. I have a couple of pieces in it, as... Continue Reading →
Looks like the Kats are gone again. At a time when the Sommet Center management group is trying to prevent the loss of one tenant, it has lost another. Nashville Kats owner Bud Adams announced Wednesday that he decided to cease operations of the local Arena Football League team. Can't say that I really have... Continue Reading →
I think I'm developing a permanent hunchback from being bent over the keyboard all day. It's not attractive. And neither are these $9.00 shoes from Walmart that I've been wearing for two years now because they seem to be indestructable. Or this pair of black dress pants that I've worn twice this week because I only have... Continue Reading →
I wasted 20 minutes of my precious lunch hour fighting traffic and red lights to go to the post office today. Only to remember as I looked in puzzlement at the empty parking lot, that the post office is CLOSED FOR COLUMBUS DAY!!! Argghhhhh!!
I'm going to give a quick update on today's GRE experience just because I'm the one who brought it up in the first place and now I need to close it out. If that makes any sense to anyone but me. It took three hours and was your typical computer administered test. I am pretty sure... Continue Reading →
Ohmagoodness, I had lunch at some Mexican restaurant on White Bridge that I can't remember the name of and I am stuffed to the max. Not good. It was nice though because The Accountant is working in town this week and we were able to go to lunch together, a rare occasion indeed! Apparently there is still some room in... Continue Reading →
Hallelujah, it's Friday! The Accountant will be helping to roof his grandparent's house this weekend (see I told you he can do ANYTHING!). I just hope this doesn't end up happening to anyone.... I love LOL Cats.
Sometimes I just feel like typing. Maybe saying nothing but typing away. I have a severe love of sentence fragments at all times but especially when I just freewrite. I think I think in fragments. But does anyone think in complete sentences? And I also love to begin sentences with the words "and" and "but". ... Continue Reading →
It's the most perfect day outside. I walked across the street to grab lunch and for some reason it surprised me how gorgeous it was out there. Guess that can happen when you come clawing out from your cave and squint into the sunlight for the first time in several hours.
I'm so tired. My eyes are red and bloodshot, my face feels hot and I'm dragging through the day. I've come to the conclusion that I just plain don't sleep well five out of seven nights a week. I wake up with my neck and shoulder muscles all tense and stiff. I don't have this problem on... Continue Reading →
