Dark Already?

Man, this stinks. Come back, daylight!!! I can already feel Seasonal Affective Discorder creeping in. I don’t exactly know that I have it, but I do know that it monkeys with your thyroid, and folks like me may need a little more medication in the winter. *sigh*

Sock Impaired

I have some serious sock issues. All is not well in the land of the sock drawer, you know? Today, the socks I’m wearing keep trying to escape. If I didn’t keep pulling them up, eventually they’d be bunched in the toe of my shoes. Annoying? You bet! I currently have three drawers dedicated to […]

Tied for 4th

And in the last seconds of the Fantasy Baseball League Regular Season, I pulled into a 4th place tie. I’ve been doing this league for four years now, and while I usually start off strong, I think this might be my best finish. I usually spiral into the toilet, which is why I’m glad it’s […]

Why Yes, That Was Me on the Radio!

If you listened to WXLO this morning and heard someone give “brilliant” [their word] baby advice to Jen, that would have been yours truly. It’s hard enough going back to work after having a baby without thinking of all the bad stuff – like missing all the milestones. Junior went to daycare at 12 weeks, […]

Jody 1, House 0

Okay, for those of you who have been reading for a while, my house isn’t a showplace, unless you mean showing clutter and more clutter. And more clutter. So I feel the need to update all of you whenever I actually get something de-cluttered. Today’s success was the downstairs hallway between the kitchen and the […]

Not So Much Sunday as Rainday

I had heard rain predicted, so I knew that it probably would rain today, but that doesn’t make me any happier about it. I really did want to go over to the Bolton Fair for a few, and I know it’s rain or shine, but I’m not rain or shine. So after I go pick […]

No New Cows

Went to the Ferncol fair again this year, and no cows gave birth. We went down for the dairy barn tour anyway, and I asked about last year’s fair calf and our tour guide said THREE calves were born over the weekend last year! She said our cow would have been out in the field […]

54 is Too Young to Die

I’m starting to really freak about the people dying lately – they’re too young! Today we learned Robert Palmer died of a heart attack at 54. He was healthy, didn’t partake in all the typical celeb excesses (according to people who would know) and yet…he’s gone now. I need to go home and listen to […]

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

GO RED SOX! Damn, I was only off by three nights. I wish they had clinched while we were at the game.

Well, That’s an Interesting Look

I got my hair cut last night. I like 75% of the cut. 75% of it looks the way I suspected it would when I made the decision to get my hair cut. But there’s about 25% of the cut that makes me want to scream and harm the she-devil who was wielding the scissors. […]
