Been a while

If you read my facebook, you already know about the weddings of my daughters. You know that Owen is now three years old, and Decky is done with his worst school year ever. You know I am recovering from yet another bout of scleritis, albeit a quickly-resolved one. You know that I have a happy hectic life.

So there’s not much to write about regarding my day-to-day activity. You see it all in short blurbs on the facebook.

That’s why I think I’ll just resume writing in the blog for more in-depth coverage of things I’m interested in, opinions, etc.

I’m not sure how I’ll work this, but I’ll let you know. Give me a day or two to figure things out.

Nice to see you again.

Effort on behalf of my sister

My sister gets concerned when I don’t post for a while. Truth be told, facebook has sucked me in. It is now my preferred method of recording my thoughts on the internet. The pithy appeal of quick sound bytes really got me.

But lately, I find I miss the extended entry, the paragraph of exploratory thought, that a blog provides.

So I figured I’d keep my blog dashboard on one of the tabs I have open on my desktop. Maybe then I can enter my stupid thoughts as they pop up, only to regret them later. At least I would be ‘blogging’, I guess.

We’ll see if this works.


I’ve decided I’m going to paint my bedroom. I also decided weeks ago that I would repaint my front door brown. I taped it up and bought the paint and supplies and everything. That was weeks ago. It still hasn’t been painted.

Koby told me today that if it wasn’t painted the next time he came over, he’d just do it. Okay I get it.

Anyway, I am in the process of picking a color for the bedroom. I’m leaning toward a pale turquoise. It will look nice with the brown curtains and the mahogany bedroom furniture and the white trim. I will have to take down the border, fix the holes in the walls and move furniture before I start. And this project will inevitably lead to me taking down all the wallpaper in the adjoining master bathroom and repainting or repapering that room too. That will be a nasty project.

So first things first. I will paint the front door tomorrow. Although tonight would be better. But I will do it tomorrow.

After I drop Decky off at school. And go for a killer walk/run before it gets too hot out. And shower, of course. Even if it’s going to be 94 and sunny all day. And the front door faces west. And the air will be on. And the color I chose for the front door is a dark glossy brown.

I will get it done. And it will look great.

Notice something different?

I’ve blogged every day this year so far.

Yeah – I know it’s only been two days, but lately I’ve been pretty reticent about posting, so it’s something.

Today I didn’t have to work, so I took down the indoor Christmas decorations, took down the tree, started the new year purge.

I also discovered I’m down over three pounds, so I’m almost back to my lowest weight on this diet. w00t! w00t!

So what did this stupid woman do to reward herself? Ate four pieces of fudge and a peanut butter ball.

Jeez. I’m just so into self-sabotage it’s ridiculous.

Oh my gosh! I figured something out!

Unbelievable, but true!  I just figured out a way to forward any visitors to my old blog, Orphie the Wonder Dog, to this site!  I’m so excited!

If you would be so kind as to leave a comment containing the link to your blog (if you have one), I would appreciate it.  The blogrolling website is having major problems and I can’t get my list of links from them.

Heck – you could even tell me about a site you think I may be interested in!  I’m always open to reading new sites.

Also, if you’d like to comment on an entry, it should be much easier now.  I fixed it so it would be (Mom).

Thanks for visiting!
