“Daily” personal journal. Simplistic, old-school journaling for peace of mind, memory collection, and re-establishment of habitual writing practice. ;-)

Add to Dictionary: Wordwork


It’s been a busy couple of weeks. Work has picked up, which is a good thing overall; but it’s also making it harder to find time for writing, which is a bad thing. This morning is the first morning in a short while that there isn’t any work available immediately after logging in, so I’m taking the opportunity to get in a little wordwork. Spellcheck does not like the word...

I Really Dislike the World Today


It’s been just over a week since my last blog post. I’ve been struggling with some stuff and kind of falling into a bit of a depressive pit. Not at all unusual for this time of year, though the winter has been especially mild this season, so perhaps the weather of the season isn’t as responsible as I once thought it was. There have been several absolutely gorgeous days–warm (60s Fahrenheit) and...

I Should Be Sleeping but I’m Not


I meant to be. Really, I did. But then I thought Eh, how about reading just a little? Big mistake. Huge. I was only planning on a chapter or two. Instead, I finished the book. And it didn’t stop there. After I closed my Kindle and snuggled down to actually go to sleep, my brain suddenly kicked into high gear. I guess I could have shrugged it off and forced myself to sleep. Hooked myself up with...

Just Me and My Dog on This Sunday Morning


It’s Sunday morning. My coffee is lukewarm. It’s cool outside, but not cold. Warm enough that my senior dog opts to plop down in the corner of the deck, rest her nose on the bottom railing, and stare off into the distance. I’m not sure what she can see. She will be 15 this summer. Her eyes are hazed over. When she was a bit younger, this was the spot from which she’d wait...

The Dreaded Physical


I really dislike annual physical appointments. So much so, that this time I put it off an extra two months. I also kept “forgetting” that I needed to get my fasting bloodwork done. Driving to the lab first thing in the morning without even a sip of coffee is nightmare level for me. Coffee is one of the very first things I do in the morning to get my eyes open and my brain working...

Clearing Spaces Within and Without


Last night, basically on a whim of “Okay, that’s it, I’ve had enough!” I cleared off the entire top of my desk, dropped all the clutter and junk it’s accumulated into a cardboard box, took down six million (slight exaggeration here) mini Post-it notes, unplugged all the cords and wires, and piled all my computer components and accessories on the bed. Then I just...

February, Already?


Wasn’t New Year’s just yesterday? Okay, that’s a bit of a stretch, I guess. It’s feeling like this year is going to fly by again. I think they’re going faster the older I get…. Sometimes I wish there was a way to slow it down. How crazy would it be to have one of those universal remotes, you know, like the one in the movie Click? That’s a throwback, for...

Someone Tell My Brain it’s Still Sleepytime!


I’ve been awake since 4:17 am this morning. Just cannot seem to get back to sleep. Too much on my mind, I guess. Though not much of it shareable in this public format. It’s strange though, because I had absolutely no problem falling asleep last night. Brains are quirky. They do as they please. Obviously I’m not speaking from a scientific angle here, just from the foggy place of...

Another Morning, Another Coffee


I reluctantly slid out of bed this morning after having only snoozed my alarm five times. I wasn’t really ready to start my day yet and was feeling quite unrefreshed. Despite how tired I was, I was definitely way more tired of it repeatedly waking me up every nine minutes! It wore me down. Alarm 1, sleeping in 0. My favorite coffee mug didn’t make it into the dishwasher yesterday, so...

I Miss the Sun


Saturday morning. I hoped to be up on the early side today, like I somehow managed to yesterday. But I stayed up too late. And I also left my watch on the charger last night, so it got to ding-ding-ding forever on the other side of the room until I finally heard it and got up. The doggoes have since been fed and let out, and are now once again happily curled up peacefully slumbering in the living...
