Murphy's law is it... whatever can go wrong will? The heatwave just broke here and we are getting some much needed cooler temperature. Did you know AC units only died during heatwaves when all stores in town are sold out? Of course! This Nordic chick here thought she would pass out. I finally survived... not… Continue reading This is Hot Hot Hot!
This... that above... mine is... fubar. I napped twice today and still I would go back to bed if I could. Close to 20 years of sleep issues make me a very tired woman. The first culprit was my becoming a mother. No stranger to interrupted sleep, it did not get better when the second… Continue reading Circadian Rhythm
I do not bitch and moan a lot, I prefer to let things slide and go on my merry way. I have an office job, a regular 9 to 5 gig, and depending on deadlines, I am also "unofficially" on-call. In a nutshell, the soldier reports for duty anytime the general calls (and no, I… Continue reading Utterly Unimpressed
My birthday is coming up in a few days and I figured I would have a little bit of fun today. An acquaintance asked me to format a document today, which I did. When all was said and done, he said to me on the phone, "Send me your bill." I raised an eyebrow and… Continue reading How to Ask a Man for Flowers
Although Spring is officially our season, I will flee from a place in the world that has not gotten the memo yet. Snow storms, North winds, frigid night are still in our weather forecast.

I learned a new term this week... and it leaves me... concerned. Did you know you can connect your watching machine to the Internet and communicate with it? 😲 I will never look at a pile of laundry the same way I did before learning this! Given, not every washing machine is equipped for it.… Continue reading The Internet of Things
Men! Ever wonder what women talk about? No, it is not always about you, or about fashion, or about the latest trend in make-up or shoes. I'm part of a small group of women of all walks of life and whose ages span from mid forties to mid seventies. We are a jolly bunch. There… Continue reading Ecclectic Group With Homogeneous Minds
A lot of ink (or pixels) has been used these last few months on the matter. I will not reinvent the wheel here, just express how sad it is to live in a world where violence and rape are rampant. Disrespect is never acceptable. I am not sure rape culture is the right label for… Continue reading Rape Culture or Violence Culture
How often do you forgive a friend? As many times as it takes. Now wait a minute! My friend hurt me in the worst possible way... and you expect me to forgive? Are you out of your mind? I am not out of my mind and yes, forgiveness is the only answer. What is friendship… Continue reading Friendship Betrayal
2018 starts on a frigid note... frigid as in -30 C which feels like -42 C due to gusty winds coming from the Arctic circle... a whole week of such conditions. Funny because it has been recorded that parts of Canada were colder than the North Pole. This too shall pass! It might be cold… Continue reading Just Frigid!
