Seems like I haven’t been here in months

I’m still getting used to not living by myself, but I sure do enjoy living just 4 minutes from work and not having to deal with the Evil Twin being dirty and dusty all the time.

My divorce should be final sometime next month and I’ll be taking my mom’s maiden name.  I still have to go to court over it.

July is the court date for the issue of not getting paid by Brookfield Washington Homes.  The trial date is set for two days.  I’m happy about this finally coming to an end, hopefully a good end!

Silly is doing fine and is getting along well with Patches, the other cat that lives here.  They spend all day chasing each other and then lay knocked out on my bed.


Patches thinks he’s hot shit!


I hope that everyone had enjoyable holidays.  I was very disappointed that Santa had been kidnapped and hope that he’s okay now…..


I get three days off a year.  One at Thanksgiving and two at Christmas.  Last Thursday I started coughing while I was at work.  Friday I had a fever of 103.7, Saturday 101.4 and Sunday the fever broke after I took some Feverfew tincture.  I didn’t get back to work until this past Tuesday.  Crap, it just doesn’t pay for me to get time off.  I’m either sick or having some kind of surgery.  I’m back to feeling awesome and very happy that I didn’t go out and buy anything to cure the symptoms.  Our bodies are pretty amazing at healing themselves if you give them the things that they need to work with. 

I just ordered a “Squeeeeek No More Kit” and hope to get it some time next week.  The squeaking floors upstairs are getting on my last nerve and they have to go away.  The noise while I’m trying to sleep is driving me nuts and I’m sick and tired of it, so I hope this works.  LOL….It’s either fixing it or not allowing anyone to walk around upstairs between the hours of 10 PM and 6 AM.  Thanks for all the suggestions, Guy, I’ll let you know if it works.

Things didn’t work out for T-Jay in Atlanta, so he will be coming home on Monday.  I’ve missed him terribly and even though he hates Virginia, I’ll be glad to have him back on my end.

Time to go to work.  Wonder if anyone will come out to buy a car on New Year’s Eve?

Here’s hoping that everyone has a safe and happy slide into the new year!!!!


  1. Well, it's about damn time. Don't you ever leave us like that again.

  2. Sir! Sorry Sir! :):):)
    I didn't realize that anyone had missed me.

  3. Welcome back. It's pretty good when MY readers start wondering what happened to YOU. Hmph. I'm a bit under the weather myself, couple degrees of temperature, chills, sore throat and cough. This is day 2, and it had better be the last.

  4. I was worried bout you but still let time slip by w/o calling to ck on ya! Good to cat-ch up and love the photos of Silly and Patches. Sorry to hear you are still suffering with the squeak--I would be insane by now. And I hope that T-Jay can work things out back here in VA, disappointment sucks!

  5., that is too funny!
    Hope you feel better. Fix yourself a nice cup of tea with some honey and put your feet up.....relax, it's the end of the year. :)

  6. Teri...LOL...insane? I think I'm past insane, but the squeaks are on their way out...Rat Bastards!
    T-Jay will be alright, he's young and I'm sure he'll catch a break soon.

  7. Welcome back I was wondering how you were! I missed you!

    Happy New Year!

  8. Welcome back! I wondered where you were. Glad you are well and enjoying the short distance to work. Happy New Year! Sheila


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
