My Thoughts on the Super Bowl Halftime Show

If you're wondering what my thoughts on the Super Bowl Halftime show are, you've come to the right place. Grab a beverage of choice, sit a spell and I'll share my thoughts with you on this generally divisive topic. As most of you know I am not a football fan. I'm not against it, I just didn't grow up watching it. My dad preferred Opera

How to Prepare for a Devastating Injury

When I broke my shoulder I wasn't prepared. I never thought I'd injure myself in such a way that I would need to so much assistance from my kids and good friends. I am fortunate to have people to help me, but I wish I had been more prepared for such a devastating injury. A fractured shoulder takes a long time to heal - upwards

Day 47 – Broken Shoulder Update

I've not bothered with daily updates on my shoulder because the improvement is so incremental, sometimes not at all noticeable, other times it is as if I have gone backwards with recuperation of this blasted broken shoulder. Today is Day 47 so time for a broken shoulder update! I just returned from Orlando, FL last night. I spent the day traveling and am surprised my

Taking a Social Media Break

I had my first physical therapy session for my broken shoulder today. I was eager to get started stretching and strengthening the muscles in my arm which haven't been used much in the last month. I was excited to get my range of motion back and get on with life. While I knew recovery would take some time, I figured once PT started recovery would

Should Whoopi Have Been Suspended?

Whoopi has been suspended for two weeks. This past Monday the women on The View were discussing the Tennessee school district's decision to pull the graphic novel Maus from the 8th grade curriculum. The school board objected to eight curse words and nude imagery of a woman. The women of The View had to weigh in on this book banning (spoiler - it is not banned)

I’d Like Some Cheese with this Whine

I'm so sick of this broken shoulder - and yes, I would like some cheese with this whine, and you might too - it's been over a month and while it is a whole lot better than it was, it still hurts (like a mofo today) and is still pretty useless. This past Monday I was cleared by my doctor to start physical therapy. I

Recently I was unfriended. Not by one person, not even two people, but by three. The first person who unfriended me accused me of idiotic thinking. The second person thought the first person's response to disagreeing with me was rational and simply followed suit. The third person just slunk away. I'm sure this is not the first time I have been unfriended, but no one


The Upside of a Broken Shoulder

I like to search for the silver linings when bad things happen. If I look heard enough I can usually find something good out of something bad. Get ghosted by the Star Wars super fan after dating for months? The upside is so much blogging material I don't even know where to begin. Alive during a never ending pandemic? Upside is I learn what the

Ending 2021 on a Solid Foundation

There is a well known quote by J. K Rowling about building her foundation on rock bottom. I'm not at rock bottom, though I believe I have been where J.K was when she spoke these words: I was set free because my greatest fear had been realized, and I still had a daughter who I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big

Alpha, Delta, Omicron, Oh My!

I've had it with Covid 19. This has been going on for nearly two years now. I can recall at the tail end of 2019 reading an obscure article about a pneumonia in China that was not getting better with antibiotics. I took notice because my father had warned me every time I was prescribed an antibiotic to "be sure to take it all because
