Screw It I’m Eating Tater Tots-Part 14

How are we all doing? I see some of you (and me) getting ragged and weary because May sucked, plain and simple. More than any other month during the quarantine.

Keeping Calendars is My Hoarding Cats

I have a secret hoarding issue. I keep old calendars.     I have kept a day planner on my kitchen counter (and now one for blogging on my desk) for so many years, I don't even remember when I started.

I’m Okay. Trust Me, I’m Shocked Too

  Recently, I wrote about Anna leaving for college and talked about how it was difficult but that it was also good. That wasn't just for keeping face. Since she's been gone, I have been good. Really good, in fact. So good that at times it kind of scares me. Like, is this it or are… Continue reading I’m Okay. Trust Me, I’m Shocked Too
