Hey everyone, remember just a few weeks ago when the biggest news story was about how sad it was that Betty White had died a few weeks short of her 100th birthday? Wasn't that a great time? I miss those days, don't you? Well, hopefully by next week the biggest news story will be, once … Continue reading Week One is Done!
Hey everyone! Sorry to be late with the post this morning, but it was super cold here in sunny Southern California last night, so I indulged in a little extra snuggle time this a.m. But here I am, wide awake and ready to face the day! And speaking of fallout, you'll be thrilled to hear … Continue reading Finally getting the ol’ zap-a-roonies!!
Welp, as of this morning my weight is an astonishing 222.2, a full 12 pounds up since my last official weigh-in here on this very blog, wayyyy back in the deep mists of time (November 10, 2021 to be exact!!)

Well, good morning, everyone! Hope you're all having a scintillatingly fandamtastic Wednesday so far! It's been a semi-eventful week on the "Road to Cancer City," starting, as you may remember, with last week's blog where I reported I was heading out for an actual, 3D, in-person road trip, and I did! I saw my new … Continue reading Moldy Wednesday!
Hey everyone, sorry to have deprived you of my glorious presence last week! Not that kind of presence, you clodpate! I meant my aura, my companionship, my ubiety, if you will!

Hey everyone! My surgery is scheduled for this Friday at 9:30 a.m., so unless there's some unforeseen delay, next week's blog will be chock-full of gruesome, gory medical melodrama! (Okay, I'm not having plastic surgery, but this made me laugh, so sue me!) And I'm going to keep this post relatively short because, while of … Continue reading Last post BEFORE!
Well, howdy, pardners! Well, now my surgical date has been confirmed as being "definitely on January 7th, or maybe the 6th, we'll let you know"! So, armed with that helpful information, I've been spending a lot more time crocheting and knitting, which means I need a lot more yarn. So yesterday, I'm wandering the aisles … Continue reading Still waiting, so how’s about a Schitt’s Creek Yarn review, because why not?
