We Are Going To Make It

Is anyone out there as old as I am? I grew up to the Mary Tyler Moore show, on every week as I recall. When I was 10 or so, she was beautiful to me, not just as a pretty woman (which she was and is, if she is still alive, is she?…)but as a […]

Hello from a NEW Perspective!

I have been spinning my wheels today, trying for hours to get my blogs here on WordPress all straightened out. It is very difficult to keep settings and numbers straight in my head since I sustained that TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) in a fall in 2013.

Bipolar Disorder. What an illness, huh? It seems to wait, like a kitty under the covers, to pounce on your feet when you least expect it, and least desire it! Such as that cozy twilight of consciousness right before you drift to sleep. Only that is not a good example, because bipolar disorder is no […]

We Never Moved, Just Moved On…

This is Baby Izzy. Her full name is Aiko XoXo Izabella, and she is a shih-tzu, as are my other 2 babies. This is her older brother, Kiko San Majestic: He looks like a wookie from star wars here. Or an Ewok, I can’t remember what that furry creature as called. Both of the kids […]

A Mess of a Blog!

Today I was running around, trying to get all my work done and I was having a hard time catching my breath. So I have been calling a local Pulmonologist (sp?) to make an appointment. I just can not abide with this proposed course of blood thinners, all the while not knowing where this blood […]

Dreaming a Dance

I am borrowing a line from a fellow blogger who has a rescue dog. The dog has a wild poopy dance, and since she lived in a crate for her first 8 years of life, Rachel said: “She must have been dreaming this dance her whole life”. You can read this post on The Cricket […]

The Who I Once Was, and Am Not

I am working on being a well person. My visiting nurse had called my Neurosurgeon this morning to ask for a refill on my break-thru pain meds, and I really am a miserable girl, but I think I am going to try not to take them anymore. I will go thru more intense withdrawals the […]
