One little compliment can make you feel great. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. Once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind you how great you are.

I see an April snowstorm in our future. I am so cool with that.

I am craving a girl friends visit fromm all directions. I am willing to travel since there are young ones who need to be seen on their own turf. As usual, my health will dictate our direction. My health? Though? I'm on a good roll right now and loving every minute of it.

I love my husband, my sisters, my friends, our blooming crocuses and narcissus. I am loving that we are so appreciative of this highly unusual season. I am loving you all for being my friends. Happy spring. Happy focus. Happy St. Patrick's Day. Love to you all.

My gosh. I am hungry, I may need to eat a hot tamale. (THANKS, JOE!) Yes, I must. Talk to you all in a few.

Why don't I post here more often? No excuses. I love reading all my Friends' posts. I need to contribute more.

Turns out Taylor Swift is my fifth cousin. My nephew has been researching our ancestry. My mom's great great great great grandfather and her dad's (same) are the same guy. I think I got that right. This stuff makes me more confused than usual.

This amazing teen has summarized very well what I live with daily. I volunteer with HeretoHelp RSD, whose goal is to promote awareness of this illness. Mostly everybody, including a doctor whom I visited yesterday FOR RSD, is not aware of it. Even if you don't want to watch the video, it would be a huge favor to many sick people if you would go to youtube and click on the thumb's up.

Thank you so much.

Yeah, well, I fell twice on leaf covered branches. And my face got scratched by the ever present brambles (blackberries mostly) in the woods. Got one knee scraped (the jeans lived) but hurt my wrist. Bad wrist made for a bad day yesterday and a bad sleep last night, but at about 6:30 AM I fell asleep hard, and now it feels better.

Made a good dinner last night despite the pain (chicken parm, my first time) and Don cleaned up what was left of the cooking detritus. I clean as I go so there was very little to do, but I was happy nonetheless. I am about to shower, and then vacuum and Dirt Devil steam clean my floors. That oughtta do me in for the day, wish me luck. Hope you are all well!

Poor Samson loathes the vacuum and the Dirt Devil. He'll be outside shutting out the world this afternoon. OH, and tamales for dinner. YAY! I MIGHT pull out one or two pieces of holiday decor as well. The more I plan the less I'll do, so I need to stop this now. OH. I also have to locate the free turkey coupon we got from the grocery. I might have to go through the recycling barrel. I hope not. Maybe I should do that before the shower, LOL!

Crawling out of my skin with stress and insomnia. Samson and I are going to attack the nature trail to see what is clear after maybe two years of neglect. Wish me luck. I predict: mud in my very near future. The last time we did this, my boot came off my foot in quicksand like mud sucking boot stuff. More later.

Yesterday I thought it would be fun to take both dogs to the dog park. It's been harder for Shady to get in and out of the car (I think we are getting a ramp to solve this) and she has been aggressive with dogs her size or larger....not to the point of fights, but growls, and not the playful kind. So we keep her leashed until we're sure all is well. Funny think is, she loves the little dogs and mothers them.

Samson is the hit of the park whenever he goes. He is like a rock star. Everybody, dogs and people, loves Samson.

Well, another Husky got Shady on her back after we thought all was well and was going for her throat. I had to reach into the fray (thank God for thick mittens) and pull her off my dog while the other owner stood there not knowing what to do. I leashed Shady, they left.  Samson played, we all came home.

But this all happened after the back steps attacked me. I leashed the dogs to get to the car, and looked at the steps, which looked wet. WRONG! They had flash frozen and it was a thin sheet of ice that you could see right through. I went down all three steps on my left hip and I am here to tell you. IT HURT LIKE A MOTHER FUCKER. Now I have a at least softball sized lump on my left hip. I can walk (although I look like a drunken sailor) but sitting or trying to lie flat SUCKS. Kept it iced off and on all night, so it's no worse. I texted a pic to my husband and a couple of friends, they said it looks like a knee is coming out of my hip.

Anybody ever have this happen before? Suggestions, please?

What a day! First the attack of the slow cooker and then the attack of the porch steps. Not even asking what's next because we've learned that lesson in this family.

TO non-readers of the anti-Rachael Ray site I belong to, she has been doing slow cooker recipes all this week. Apparently my slow cooker is pissed off. Also, I have no idea what has happened to the margins of this post, but I need you to read it in case anything untoward happens to me and there are ceramic cookware pieces involved:

This is a true story. Just as I sat down (early for once) to do the raycap, I heard a horrendous noise behind me. Indeed, it sounded like something crashed through a wall. I was exceptionally alarmed because last night  I heard a sound outside, and then went to back to sleep. Fear? Who heeds that?

On the phone:

DON: Hi honey, I am going to stop and pick up something for lunch. Do you want anything?

ME: Ummmm, no.

DON: Are you sure?

ME: Yes.


DON: Why didn't you want me to get you anything for lunch?

ME: I threw up this morning.


ME: Spotty found a picture that somebody posted online of a Rachael Ray dish and it made me throw up.

SILENCE. .. ...

ME: Do you want to see the picture?
