The above is from I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy. iCarly was wrapping and she was afraid that her friendship with Miranda would turn out to be just a show friendship that would fade when they no longer worked together. It got me thinking about friendships again and how pretty much all of … More Seasonal Friends
Apparently. I wrote about being home alone while my family was away at this time 5 years ago. It seems like when we are not in a pandemic this is a time for my family to travel. It makes sense since they have gone to Kentucky for my MIL’s birthday. 5 years ago would also … More Alone Again 2: Electric Boogaloo
I have had several days of terrible sleep. Instead of trying to write something coherent, I will instead share with you something I published on Medium recently. I once wrote on my blog about my weird super powers. They were random things like having a song in my head right before I turn on the … More Invisibility is My Unfortunate Superpower
If you’ve read my blog lately you have seen all of my whining about me having no air conditioning until Friday. We are heading into two very hot days because of course we couldn’t get two cooler days to help me out. Dealing with this is bad enough, being home alone with it makes it … More Misery Loves Company
This is my third week in a row where I am home alone for at least three days. My wife was in Austin, Kansas City, and now Charlotte for work. The last two weeks I worked at the barn, I went to a lunch and learn at the barn, I did yard work, and I … More A Lazy Week
On the same topic as yesterday – I spend more time talking to animals these days than I do talking to people. I thought about this last night when my dog wanted to go out during Survivor and I was telling her how had her timing was. I tell Abigail, the goat, that she’s being … More Talking to Animals
The above title was brought to you by the Department of Redundancy Department and the fact that I used the title Alone Again, Naturally in December. My wife has been approved to travel domestically again for work. She left yesterday for Texas and will be away for at least part of the next three weeks. … More Alone Again, Naturally, Again
This is a whiny, poor me post. Feel free to skip and come back tomorrow when I will be back to just being boring. I am feeling very distant from everything these days for a variety of reasons. Most of them are the result of choices I made. Part of the distance has always been … More Tater, Once Removed
I was trying to remember when I have seen people from outside of my family. It was hard because I don’t have a lot of reasons to leave my house these days. I went to training at the therapeutic riding place 10 days ago. I’ve seen people at the school office as I’m dropping off … More Do I Miss People?
This is a hard one. For me to think someone has incorrect assumptions about me would mean I think people think about me at all. I’m pretty sure that is generally incorrect. I’m kind of an “out of sight, out of mind” person. I guess building on that I would say that since I am … More Bloganuary 9: What Do People Incorrectly Assume About You?
