Still Here

Well I am still around, just not blogging much.  I can't believe it but things are pretty much the same as always.  I feel like I'm stuck in a black hole or something and nothing ever changes.  I just keep spinning my wheels and get no where.  I really have been feeling down lately.  I need a holiday, just a short break away from my life to get some perspective but I know that won't happen.  I haven't had a holiday in, well I don't even know how long, 10 years at least or probably even much more.

My dream holiday would be a cabin somewhere either on a beach or in the woods.  I don't even care if it was warm or cold out as long as I don't have to talk to anyone or do anything but enjoy the change of scenery.  I'd light a fire and snuggle up with a hot cup of tea and a good book.  I'd take long walks and take in the beauty where I was.

Instead I'm stuck here dealing with things I don't want to deal with, so much I don't want to deal with. …


I haven't had much energy to post here.  Yes Birdie I'm still alive although I'm not sure I'm well.  The world has pretty much got me down and then there are some family struggles that I'm dealing with too.  I don't want to post negative stuff all the time so I'm just not going to post until I have something positive to say and right now I'm a negative Nellie so I won't gripe and whine and hopefully it won't rub off on anyone else.  I'm not saying that no one should vent or say negative things it's just that I don't have the energy to post them right now and I don't want to.

So excuse my silence while I try to show this negative Nellie the door.

Trying My Best

This year I am trying to read more.  I used to read lots of books but not so much anymore.  I have a ton of books I must get to reading just so I can get them out of my house as they are starting to take over my living room shelves.  I just started this goal last month and so far have read four books. 

I read "Gone Feral" by Novella Carpenter.  It wasn't too bad but I've read one of her books already so I knew I'd like it.  It's about her quest to connect with her father.

The second one I read was "in a Dark, Dark Wood" by Ruth Ware.  It's a horror/ mystery book and wasn't too bad.  It jumped back and forth in time which always confuses me so not my fave writing style but was a clever story that had you guessing right till the end.

The third book was "The Witches of New York" by Ami McKay.  It was set in the early 1900's (I think, don't quote me on that) and didn't have the strongest story line but I liked it.  These tw…

Long Time No Posts

With all that we had gone through at Christmas I took a break from the blog.  Some posts are now private.  Life is still a bit of a struggle but it doesn't stop you from getting on with it.

Lets start with the weather, it's been wonderful.  Some days it's sunny and warm and others it's rainy and cool.  Pretty unsettled just like a normal spring.  Gardens are growing weeds like mad.  We haven't attempted to plant much this year.  We just don't have any money or energy for anything extra.

My computer is slowly dying, it's old and to be expected but frustrating none the less.  If I stop posting again it's most likely because my computer died entirely and posting on one of the kid's laptops is too much of a pain.  I hate trying to type on those laptops.  I guess I could plug in my keyboard but then it's getting to be too much bother just to post a boring update and let you all know nothing is new.

I had a list of things I was going to blog about but…
