In case you were wondering, NYE wasn't bad, not at all. There was a lot of alcohol flowing, but they were happy drunks. And I do find happy drunks entertaining. One of those, "Sit back and enjoy" moments. hahaha I had been worried about finding something that we could all chat about, but luckily, there… Continue reading 2018!!
It's the annual "resolutions" time and I have several. hahaha Just kidding. Once upon a time, I tried, but I no longer bother. They just don't work for me. My goals are accomplished with steps and habits, not with resolutions. But hey, if they work for you, rock on! I am, however, one of those… Continue reading Happy New Year!
Perhaps it's rude to write a blog while sitting in a funeral home, but hey, it's what I do. I'm also the kind of person to make a joke and think of funny memories at a place like this. Someone has to brighten things up. (Insert eye roll here.) I know wakes are supposed to… Continue reading Birth, Death, In-Between
Goodness, I hope I caught all the December holidays in that title! It's December. Tis the season to bicker over how to wish someone happiness and joy. Which to me is complete nonsense. ***WARNING*** The below is how I view religion, which some may find offensive. Here's the thing. If I go to someone's home,… Continue reading Happy Christmahanakwanzikayule!
Hi there, Catie here! Big news! Well, for us anyway... This post could have just as easily been called "We Will Never Take A Family Vacation Again" because..... Bina Got A Job!!!! Hip Hip Hooray!! We have been gently pushing her to get a job since she graduated high school. This is a great big… Continue reading Wednesday – Changes In The Air
Would you like to get into a passionate discussion in this house? Here are some of the things you should mention: Biggles/Felix/Horace/Prix (pick one) is the best cat in the house. This will open up a whole conversation on who's the best. We all have our favorites, but Prix is, of course, the cutest, most… Continue reading Oh, Those Are Fighting Words!
September has been incredibly busy for me, and so far, it hasn't stopped. Which is good and bad. Here's the thing... I like to bounce. I'm in the middle of a novel, I volunteer as the treasurer for my writer's group, I paint and opened an Etsy shop for my doodles, I have a full… Continue reading Such a Flake
Sorry, folks. September has been quite a busy month for us, and it's only been a couple of weeks. T started high school at the end of August and Bina started college right after Labor Day. I had to put my Treasurer's hat on again for my writers group (our fiscal year begins in September)… Continue reading Sunday Not-So-Funnies
First, I should mention that Catie and I don't have letters after our names; no LPN, PhD, or MD. We are not what you would call "professionals." So everything we share is our personal experiences, thoughts, and opinions. Please consider this when you read our posts. Because this kind of life isn't for everyone. When… Continue reading Do you want it too?!
When I think of polar opposites, I think of contradictory things: black/white, good/bad, tall/short. But when you think about it, that's actually a misnomer. Because both polar points on Earth are ice cold. Catie and I are quite different. More like polar ice and desert heat. She likes bright sun; I like rain. She likes… Continue reading Black vs White: Polar opposites
