Blogmas 2016 – The Evolution Of Christmas Dessert

Day 21 I was first given the honour of making the Christmas dessert when I was eight years old. I was already baking and helping my Mom in the kitchen. And it was really not a huge risk for her … Continue reading

Sausage Balls

I’m trying to decide if I want to cook these this morning or tomorrow for Christmas breakfast.  It’s a tradition  and the kids reminded me the last time I went to the grocery store.   I started it early in our marriage and the kids always remember.  I also make apple cobbler, but will wait on that until Christmas morning.

TOday is going to be a lazy day otherwise. My girls are shopping for their grandmother for Christmas with their grandfather and Bob is going to get a tooth filled so I will have the house to myself. for a while again.  Don’t know what I’m going to do except for maybe some more laundry.

I’ts nice to feel good and be able to get stuff done, but getting it all done quickly leaves me with time on my hands.  I should be writing something else instead of just the blog, but I can’t come up with anything right now.  I’m going to do another bit for the mental health blog I write for, but that’s not due until late January.

So I hope everybody can push through the last few days of holiday and enjoy themselves at Christmas.  Merry merry!


Blogmas 2016 – Do Unto Others

Day 20 It is only five more days before Christmas day. This can mean so many different things for different people. Some are traveling home to be with family Others are traveling away from family to a destination resort or … Continue reading

December is still a shit month

I got a Fitbit Charge 2 which is kind of fun, and I wanted a watch. My anxiety has been through the roof these past few days, though, and the Fitbit tells me my pulse rate has been very high, also.

I get the feeling like time moves too fast and I have no extra time at all. Sometimes I feel like I don’t have an extra ten minutes per day to do anything I might want to do. I’m too wound up trying to get work done and other things done, and make phone calls, and worry about doctors, that that’s all there is every day, and it wears on me after a while. I have no idea how other people find time to hang out with their friends or talk on the phone or whatever it is that real people do.

I was completely panicking yesterday because I had a painting that needed done ASAP, and was up all night working on that, then looking for more work, then wandering around town to the post office, etc. I’m thinking I should just take a few days off of everything and not even turn on the computer or phone. Of course, that will just add to my guilt when it comes to not getting enough things done, continuing to put off important phone calls, and so on, so I’m not sure if it’ll help at all.

It’s also been really cold out and that makes me not want to go outside much. Can’t walk the dogs much or very long, since we’ve had a wind chill factor of -11F. I’ve enjoyed the snow shoveling this year, though, but it just reminds me that I’ve forgotten to fix the gate in the yard. It needs a couple more screws in it, and it would be nice to do that on a dry, warmer day.

But in general, it feels like all the distant black clouds that have been following me for years are directly overhead and pissing all over me at the moment.
