IKR? I’m actually blogging! WTF?? :)
Today’s post is about some realisations I’ve had and more about the iPad goodness. First up, insights.
I’ve realised that I have no patience for scaredy cat types. People who are fraught with anxiety put me off in a bad way. I’ve known this forever, but [...]
What’s a family visit without drama? All was well up until the end, but it’s inevitable that something will trigger DRAMA with them. They make me as nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof.
Saturday was OK, we slept in since we’d been out past our bedtime with Chrissy and I had to sleep off the Jameson! We got to the homestead around noon. We sat around while my mother called my brother to find out where he was and what he was doing. This is what they do all day, every day. They sit around calling each other to find out what’s going on. My brother calls to find out when food is ready. I kid you not.
So, anyway, my mother is all laid up with her shoulder being out (hello, the exact same affliction as her mother) and her neuropathy has flared up in her leg, so she’s got some sort of brace on, hobbling around. She is primed for a blow up, but since everything is going smoothly, she’s got no excuse. Yet. Continue reading At Least the Drama Is New
We went up to Knoxville to see the family for Christmas (that tale in the next post), but the real event was me and my twin Chrissy meeting for the first time in 27 years! We are twins from different mothers, but twins nonetheless. She was born about 200 miles away but at 8:05am and I was born at 8:08am. We grew up a couple of miles apart and went to the same schools but somehow managed to not really become friends. Then we ran across each other on FaceBook and realised we were twins and now we are BFFs!
We figure the reason we didn’t really hang out together in High School is because we are so much alike. I was never really a part of any cliques and by Senior year had pretty much left the social scene all together. I dated older guys and hung out with college guys as did Chris. But then we started chatting on FB and realised we are very much twins and we’ve been wanting to meet in person for a few months.

Seriously. This stew is soooo good! And easy-peasy to make! It’s not the cheapest stew in the world (the lamb will run you around $20) but it is 100% worth it.
About 2-2.5# of lamb (I used shoulder chops and steaks – the chops are best) 1 C sliced or shredded carrots 1 [...]
First up: House musings. It’s been 8 years since we bought Casa Mizgala. And we are part of the proud 25% of Americans (I say it’s MUCH MORE) who have worthless property! Wooo! Since the bankruptcy, we have kept paying the mortgage, so they really don’t care one way or the other. Technically, the [...]
