Pain, I Has It

I went to sleep with my hair wet the other day and woke up with a stiff neck. We are on day two of this and it is absolute misery.

It hurts to get into my car, and I can barely turn my head, which makes driving difficult. So needless to say, I'm not going anywhere, except when I went to do laundry this morning.

I'm hoping that by tomorrow I'll be able to function, because there is a lot of stuff that I want to do. Oh and my neck hurts so much that I can't read.


I'm in pain and I'm miserable and cranky.

'nuff said.

What I Did With My Weekend

14 inches of snow fell in Charleroi, PA and our road crews have done nothing.

What have I done with my time?

I baked some bread

Caught up with some reading.

Got around to finally watching Maleficent, which I'll be reviewing later on Wenches.

And cleaned my kitchen.

Woo hoo!

Great weekend!

Preparing For The Storm

I hope Bill has a nice supply of toilet paper and milk since his area is about to get buried by snow.  I'm not going to be getting as much snow, but it will be enough to make this weekednd a stay home and relax weekend.

Thank you God!

I have some recipes I want to try out.

I have these books out from the library

I have some movies I can watch too.

I'm actually kind of excited about this, so you want to make a bet the storm tracks south and we don't get as much as they planned for us.

This Year Officially Sucks

I'm still not over David Bowie's death. I know its stupid to feel so bad about someone I never met, but regardless, I do.

Then to find out that Alan Rickman has died, at the same age, from cancer too. It is kind of surreal.

I don't think I've listened to David Bowie as much as I have this week.

For some reason I just want to crank up his music and stand outside in the cold and wave a lighter around.

25 albums of varying levels of greatness and now there will be no more.

No more Bowie.

Its just so incredibly sad.

The stars really do look different today.

Still Reeling

There aren't many celebrity deaths that really affect me, but David Bowie's death has hit me hard. It really bothers me that there is no longer a world with his brilliance in it.

Twenty five albums.

Movies, some good and some bad and some just beyond words.

There's so much he did in 69 years.

I think this image that I found on Facebook yesterday says it all.

RIP David Bowie

This was not the kind of news I wanted to wake up to. It isn't the kind of news I was even expecting. Heck I hadn't even had the chance to listen to his new single.

Random Thoughts

~ President Obama's executive orders on guns. Seriously people, he's not taking them away from you. What the hell is wrong with stricter background checks. The fact that so many people in this nation feel the need to get their panties in a twist about this scares me. We are so violent anymore. And those guns don't always protect you. My aunt and uncle and cousin were murdered in their beds, their gun sitting in the night stand. Just saying.

 ~ The water situation in Flint, MI is another scary thing. If you haven't heard about this, there are high levels of lead in the water supply there, and little is being done to correct the issue. WTF is wrong there? Why aren't people being held accountable. The governor should be put in jail. This is beyond negligence and its been going on for months!!!!! Oh wait, Flint is a poor city, so they simply don't care!!!!!

 ~ Trump. What can I say about this man? He scares me. The country that may very well nominate him and elect him scares me. This year makes me want to cancel my cable and get netflix and hulu so I wouldn't have to look or listen to him.

 ~ Taking down Christmas this weekend. Some people get depressed before Christmas, for me its after Christmas because everything is so bleak and there is nothing to look forward to until May.

 ~ Going to celebrate New Year's tomorrow, since we couldn't have the festive meal on the 1st because mom was in the hospital

2016 Starts with a bang

Mom was in the hospital for the holiday, which is why I haven't been blogging.

I swear, that I will get back to regular blogging at some point. Lord knows I try.

On a happier note, mom is out of the hospital and doing better. While she was in, she had her defibrillator checked and the settings changed, which saved her a visit to the office and saved us some money, especially as it cost us $62.00 to bring her home.

If it isn't one thing its another.

Oh and we had a pipe start leaking and we had to call the plumber.

See what I mean?
