#amediting #editinghell – Essential oils to the rescue.

I really do use essential oils all the time. In my diffuser, topically, and even internally. I’ve been using Young Living’s Stress Away oil for a while topically and in my diffuser, and finally ordered one of the roller balls for it. Makes it even easier to use it. And I cannot live without their … Read More

Packing level: #Tetrismaster. (And fuck you, Alzheimer’s.)

I know I’ve been quiet the past couple of weeks. My mother-in-law finally lost her long battle with Alzheimer’s last week (capping off the shittiest of Februaries EVER). I hate that disease with a passion. It spent years slowly robbing a wonderful, loving, talented woman of her mind and her life. The past year has … Read More

Eating crow doesn’t taste so bad, and new beginnings. Welcome Kiwi.

It’s been just over a week since we lost our sweet Gidget. Hubby picked up her ashes and pawprint impression yesterday from the vet’s office. (A week to the day since we lost her. Some Valentine’s Day gift, huh?) Thank you to everyone who’s messaged and wrote Hubby and myself to express your condolences. They’re … Read More

New Pre-Order, Time Machine Discount, Adventures in Gardening 2017

So I’ve decided to seriously undertake vegetable gardening again. I use a combination of containers/raised beds because I cannot physically do traditional gardening methods with my fibromyalgia. (And I’ll be looking into straw bale gardening, too.) So I ordered a Mr. Stacky set of pots for strawberries, herbs, and greens, in addition to the other … Read More

#HomeImprovementHell – More joys of old-house plumbing troubles…

I’ve discussed the joys of having a 60+ year-old house before. The latest saga… Son is home for a visit. And when I was standing in the kitchen yesterday, I heard the hot water heater running. Which, to be honest, I’d heard before over the past couple of weeks, but attributed it to normal use. … Read More

Hurricane #Matthew – Heads up and weather resources.

I wish that image was one of those, “Hurricane forecasters in Florida,” memes…but it’s not. That is a screenshot of the latest Hurricane Matthew models as of 10:30am Thursday, 10/6/2016. Um…yeah. The thing is, this has been trending for DAYS and the National Hurricane Center (NHC) uses the most conservative estimates for track forecasts. But … Read More

Think BEFORE you blow up and don’t do THIS…

So I posted a couple of comments on Facebook this morning about that Anonymous Author book that’s “supposedly” a retelling of a story by one author to another about how the other author cheated on her husband and isn’t fond of her kids, etc. (Despite the copyright page clearly stating that it’s fiction.) And people … Read More


Sooo…been a couple of stressful weeks around here. I didn’t want to post anything publicly about this until we had all the answers, because I honestly couldn’t deal with the extra stress and spoons it would require to try to keep everyone posted. (Plus, I have enough health issues, so I didn’t want to dump incomplete … Read More

Nineteen years and counting…

So nineteen years ago today, a really sweet and laid-back Buckeye guy married a really intense and stubborn native Floridian woman. Somehow, they made it work. And as far as I’m concerned, it’s working even better now than it did nineteen years ago. (And it was working pretty damn well back then, too.) Thing is, he made … Read More

Go away, #Colin

Tropical Storm Warning issued for Florida… Everyone else: PANIC! Florida Natives: Better charge my Kindle/phone/iPad… This is mostly going to be a rain event. There will be some coastal flooding due to high tide coinciding with the arrival of the rain, but Colin is a sheared system. It’s no Ivan, Charley, or Katrina, for sure. … Read More
