I’m tired.

Check that… I’m EXHAUSTED!

Not only that, I am done… had it… kaput… the lights are on but nobody’s home.

I think you get the picture.

These last 3 weeks have be tough on this old broad.  At precisely 9 am on Thursday morning I hit the proverbial brick wall.

I was dead.  I wanted to lock the door and crawl under my desk and take a nap.  This was a totally plausible option, except for the fact that my supervisor has a key to the office and probably would have found it quite curious that I was curled up in the fetal position sawing logs.

Or not.

Last night after I got home my body decided to totally crash, and every time I got up from my chair, it screamed “NO!”.  I didn’t even have the energy to talk on the phone.  I haven’t been this bad in a long time.

They’d better find a qualified applicant for the vacancy in our office pretty soon, or I may just go a little loony on them.


We finally got some rain this week.

It was beautiful.  The plants gave a collective sigh and sang “hallelujah”.  It was a glorious site.

But it is halfway through June and we have reverted back to May temperatures.  Hell, I still have my winter blankets on the bed.

I sure hope that Mother Nature makes up her mind soon, because I need me some sun, heat and humidity, dammit!


It seems that my commod cheese post gave Nichole inspiration for Thursday’s supper menu.

She broke out some of her stash that I gave her a few months ago and made the family a big ‘ol batch of homemade mac & cheese.  This was “from scratch” cooking at it’s best starting with the roux and turning out ooey gooey cheesy perfection!

How do I know?  She sent me a text of the picture, of course!

Unfortunately, I don’t have the “tools” to transfer it properly to my computer to share with everyone, so you’ll just have to trust me on this one.  It looked nummers!!

Your great grandma Larson would be proud.


If I wasn’t already at work, I think I would be crying great big crocodile tears!

Actually, I know I would be, because I am doing my best to hold them back.

The outpouring of support and encouragement and love that came from yesterday’s post touched me so deeply.

I wish I could give each and every one of you a great big squeeze, but our virtual environment has not evolved to that point yet, so a ginormous THANK YOU will have to suffice for now.

I love you all!


It is Friday.

Glorious Friday.

I was ready for this day on Wednesday.

Not only does it mark the end of the workweek, but it also ushers in the arrival of munchkins tonight.

Look at those smiley faces!

I will gladly yell at summon my body to wake up and enjoy every minute with these youngins!

Grandma and Grandpa are waiting for your hugs, kisses and unending energy, so bring it on!

Well, not full-blast “on”, but you know the level, right?  Save the good stuff for your folks, Okay?
