Possibilities

We are making good progress packing up the house. All the rooms, closets, and drawers are nearly empty except for the kitchen and bathroom. I am leaving those for last. After that I will have to work on the back porch and basement. I’m…

Nice & Boring

The days of this summer are passing by with one day blending into another without much change. I don’t mind that. Sometimes co-workers ask EJ “How’s life?” When he replies, “Nice and boring,” they respond, “What? Really? No, you want it EXCITING!” EJ says,…

Busy Doing Nothing

This morning my phone rang at about 6:30 a.m. I saw it was from my sister-in-law and my mind immediately leaped to a list of possible bad news. People, especially family, don’t call during sleeping hours unless something is wrong. Bracing myself, I answered…

Interesting Things

There And Back Again

JJ starts college this coming Monday. We have been teaching him the route to the college by having him drive us there and back again several times over the last couple months. The last time he drove us to the college, I wrote down…

A Crappy Life

Lately I have had a rather crappy life. I mean, really. One of our cats has had diarrhea. Badly. I was constantly discovering it and cleaning it up and mopping the floors. I’ve also dumped out and washed the litter boxes because the cat…

Laundry Day

Today we did laundry. When we first moved into our house, the washer and dryer were in the unfinished basement. I had to constantly run down to the basement through our unheated very-cold-in-the-winter back porch to do laundry. So when we redid our downstairs…
