Dry August…

…haven’t sat down to read or write this month.  There’s a partial reason. As some of you may have read, I lost my sweet kitty a few weeks back.  He was nearly 18 and it broke my heart to let him go.  So on a random Friday, my daughter and myself walked the dog in…

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #6

Taking a break for the birthday lunch. I’m bringing my ereader so I’m going to get some reading done in the car. Happy reading!

I Bought Books…

…but hear me out before you scold me! We all know I put a book buying ban on myself, and I’ve had a hard time sticking with it in the past. But this isn’t what you think… Sort of… Well it is and it isn’t. Last night I decided to use the computer to check…

I Am Such…

…a dumbass! So as anyone who follows me knows, I belong to Paperback Swap.  Well they have sister sites for DVD and CD swapping.  I had a few doubles and DVDs that no one wanted so I figured I join and swap them and maybe get a few DVDs for my collection.  So most of the…

Sick Pup

So after dealing with the neighbor’s dog trying to kill mine, now we have the possibility of cancer hanging over our heads. Our Chevy had surgery today to remove a tumor from his paw. We have to wait for a biopsy to find out if it’s benign or malignant.  Fingers crossed that it’s all nothing…

Happy Friggin’ Mother’s Day to Me

So on a day where I was allowed to sleep in and was promised bbq’d ribs, asparagus, cake and wine, we had a near tragedy, and I don’t know how to feel about it.  That’s a lie, I should feel sad and angry and that is how I feel. My not-direct next-door neighbors lost a dog…

Someone Talk Me Down!

I’m on Amazon–but it’s not what you’re thinking, I swear!  I’m ordering something for the house and it comes to $21.37, but it’s eligible for one day shipping if I spend $35 on edible items. I think we all know where this is going and I’m having a hard time controlling myself!!

I’m a Naughty Girl

I’ve been bad. I’ve broken two promises to myself: I ordered books after promising myself that I would not spend money on books, or add to my ridiculously large collection of books that I have yet to read. I ordered from Thriftbooks after swearing off this site forever. I couldn’t resist.  After the debacle with the book…

Having a ‘Grrrr’ Moment

So I’m a member of Paperback Swap.  It’s changed since I first joined and now costs either an annual membership fee, or a $0.55 fee when swapping.  That sucks, but it’s not that big of a deal to me.  But that’s not the point of this post. The point is that, I had an incident with…

Not Better, But Definitely Not Worse

I have been reminded to be kind to myself and to utilize my support system.  I have a great one, I just sometimes need reminding that I can lean on them.  I am not better, but I’m getting there.  It was my bestie that finally talked me down, as only a bestie can, with brutal…

Bad Days Suck

I’m having such a bad day today mentally, emotionlly…I am feeling despair and not a whole lot else..  *ugh*  Whatever, I’ll get over it. I don’t want/mean to bring anyone else down with me.  I just needed to get that out.  Thank you for allowing me.

April Book Haul

So, I was completely irresponsible and bought a small stack of books the other day. Now I have two meanings to ‘irresponsible’ in this case. The first, and probably biggest, is that I really shouldn’t have spent the money in general. The second, and funnier meaning (at least I think it’s funny), is that I…
