She's recovered from COVID, but still has a bit of brain fog. Told her I fully understand the brain fog. She might have occasional brain fog (looking at paperwork, knowing she knows what to do, but at the same time confused by it all) but she worked my asterisk off.... Continue reading
I thought Simon the Sadist was a tough physio-therapist. That isn't anything compared to him as an exercise therapist. As an exercise therapist, he makes you push yourself, but not to the point you cause damage. Picture this: while getting ready to do a session on the reformer, of which... Continue reading

My ass hurts. That being typed, I can also say I don't have another session on Friday, as Meg tested positive for COVID. As much as my ass hurts, this stop and go (dare I say) exercise routine leaves much to be desired. I'm supposed to be going twice a... Continue reading

Hey Skype; I didn't ask for, request your Bing chat bot, or Skype chat bot to be attached to my Skype account/window. It's bad enough you turned the desktop program into a mobile phone look-a-like. Continue reading

Doesn't do a damned thing. I went to bed early, because I had an appointment to see my exercise therapist. I groggily get up, manage to get dressed. Staggered off to get first cup of coffee in the morning. In between sips of coffee, got my hair brushed and braided.... Continue reading

Because of IINETs' shoddy handling of unloading email service, and then with almost no notice, deleted the websites. Why? because their corporate monkeys have decided websites and email has nothing to do with the internet(?) Regardless, I managed to get the website downloaded. Good thing, too, because my custom mood... Continue reading

So to type. Alan had to have a double hernia repaired. Wing and I have been doing what's needed to take care of him. I have to admit, I am knackered. Had to change his surgical dressings. Ugh. At least the incisions are looking good. But standing at a 45... Continue reading

Because of circumstances mostly beyond my control (neighbor selling house to move to east coast to be closer to elderly parents) and from me no longer begging family in the U.S. for some form of communication (email, text message, even a FB message) I have become very isolated. I can't... Continue reading

No scarring, not signs of any growths or other abnormalities. But the I had one helluva surprise a few weeks later. I started having chest pains. Just a little, then it got worse and worse. I ended up taking an ambulance ride to the hospital emergency. After many blood tests,... Continue reading

If you want to get out of the open sewer that Twitter has become, 3 invite codes for Bluesky. I have found Bluesky to be what Twitter used to be before that jackass Elon took over. You want invite code, send me a message. Continue reading

And I went to my counseling session dressed as Queen Victoria, the widow years. And yes, they let me go home. I kind of staggered off to bed, and I was so wrung out, I didn't hear the purr kids' morning antics, and slept through. Wing said I was deeply... Continue reading

I'm still getting so tired after doing the simplest of tasks. Even taking a shower and getting dressed makes me feel as if I am in need of a good nights' sleep, starting before noon. Nagging cough hasn't quite gone away. In better news, Isis has settled right in. She... Continue reading

Well, I guess not everything has vanished. I also got a WordPress blog, which I find much more user friendly. I don't know what Typepad has against using offline, or what they call 3rd party, blogging tool. Strange, isn't it, that they don't consider using email program a 3rd party toll, when it clearly is?
I found a great use for all the excess hand sanitizer. Get a small microfiber cloth, squirt some on it, make sure the cloth is damp with it. If your computer is on, open notepad and close everything else. Maximize note pad, and start cleaning. It's easier if your computer... Continue reading

I really don't know how much longer I'm going to be on antibiotics, but I am well and truly tired of taking them three times a day. Using the inhaler makes me dizzy, because you have to hold your breath between the two doses. And ick. And I'm not kidding... Continue reading

Still recovering from upper respiratory infection. I don't mind taking the antibiotics, but that steroid inhaler makes everything taste funny, even if I rinse and brush. Been thinking at lot about Loki. I miss him so much, but I'm so grateful that the last few weeks, he would seek me... Continue reading

I have followed the instructions that Typepad support gave me, regarding being able to use a '3rd party' program, rather than posting via their webpage. I know this works for WordPress. Not too sure about Blogger. Posting a blog entry should not be so laborious! # Continue reading

Last Sunday, when walking around a corner to MiL's favorite noodle house, I walked into a thick cloud of cigarette smoke. In one day, I went from an asthmatic with seasonal allergies to having a severe upper respiratory infection. The high fever gave me something else, too, but hey, gotta... Continue reading

They informed me that Isis' sibling, who was adopted 4 weeks before we got Isis, died of FIP and Isis might have been exposed. This is not the kind of news one wants to hear. Especially after making an appointment for our vet to give her a once over, and... Continue reading

I saw this perfect little void floof/house panther. She isn't a replacement for Loki. Even my counselor said getting her was a good move, as she in no way resembled any of our previous moggies. Her name: Her rescue name was "Gladys". No, thank you. I had considered calling her... Continue reading

And it did, last night. We had our first feline interloper in our back yard last night. It walked around the back yard, unchallenged. Without the voice of Loki, Lord of the Manor, and his scent lessened, if not totally washed away by the recent rain, it was bound to... Continue reading

Loki's absence is truly felt. No snoring which could be heard from across the room. No rumbling purr. Even the kittens (who aren't really kittens anymore) aren't as vocal. They keep looking for him. I know how they feel. I have Loki's urn on my desk, slightly in the way... Continue reading

Loki, my beautiful cat, has crossed the rainbow bridge. We took him to the vet this evening, in hopes that some antibiotics and pain meds would ease his discomfort for a little while longer, but alas, that wasn't meant to be. The cancer had spread very rapidly and was now... Continue reading

I read that mini series on Apple+ was an Apple+ original. I read what the mini series was and said Whohuhwha? Said Apple+ Original was the same thing I had watched on Curiosity stream. That's not very Apple+ original to me. How about you? Continue reading
