Blogger milestone: 1,000 followers!

Good morning! It’s Monday morning and I am feeling pretty good today even despite my fall yesterday. Apologies for the rant post but I was feeling pretty down on myself. My sister reached out this morning and offered to bring me my dad’s cane. We caught up for a bit and I am happy to…

Beware of scammy websites like Freelancer

A couple of years ago, I was toying with the idea of becoming a freelancer and signed up for a bunch of websites like Freelancer.com. I did some research before joining, and it was confirmed that the site was legit. Something has happened in recent years, and the reviews for the website aren’t very good….

It’s a Terms of Endearment kind of night (movie night)

Ever have one of those days where you think you should just stay in bed because you’re a hazard to yourself and those around you? Yeah, today has definitely been one of those days. It’s actually been one of those weeks where I’m wallowing in self pity from the pains of hypermobility. Even with doing…

Friday Feeling – today’s word is “squall”

It’s Friday again! Does it really matter though? The days have all blended together and it doesn’t seem to matter what the day is. They all feel the same lately. That’s the effect isolation has had on us all. We’re still in lockdown here. Most restaurants and bars are closed. I haven’t had a haircut…

Monday Mood – is 4 am too early for coffee?

It’s almost four am once again and I’m wide awake. Even with sleeping pills I’m just not feeling it. It doesn’t help that two hours ago I saw a mouse for the first time since the fall and I freaked out. I’m so ready to move from this building. I’m still looking for a new…

Isolation and the impact it has had on communication skills

Something I realized this week as I started reaching out to people via phone calls and texts, is that COVID-19 has cured my hatred for talking on the phone. Talking on the phone is something that we all did as teenagers in the 90’s. We didn’t have cell phones or even a home computer in…
