Love my crazy life

I completely overdid this weekend and have myself feeling like crud again. We were hosting Easter dinner, and the dust bunnies were beginning to get somewhat aggressive. The last thing I wanted was to serve mashed potatoes a’la’cat hair, so I sta...

Love My Crazy Life

I was hoping to avoid the spring crud that I typically get this time of year, but unfortunately, it found me. I was feeling tired and run down for several days. Then over the weekend into Monday, I was having dizzy spells and had an upset tummy. I’m...

Love my crazy life

Jacob and Jessica are getting married in a little more than six weeks. I don’t know much about the wedding plans, as I’m the mother of the bridegroom, and the boys don’t tell me anything… unless there is a problem. So for now I am resting easy, knowi...

 

Love my crazy life

Is it just me or does everyone get tired of trying to figure out what’s for supper every night of the week? Why is it such a daunting task? Sometimes I think to myself, do we really need to eat? I mean I have at least two weeks stored up around my w...

Love my crazy life

The goal of keeping the house clean has failed. The boys were here over the weekend. Between the trip to Omaha on Friday and the trip on Sunday, not a thing was accomplished over the weekend. It’s not bad from the outside looking in, but I have a p...

Love my crazy life

Bob, our cat, is a horrible influence on Duke. Besides taunting him and getting him in trouble, he has introduced him to the “water fountain” in the bathroom. So now instead of fighting with the kids over bathroom time, I fight with the cat and dog...

 

Love my crazy life

I took advantage of the weather Monday, and sat out on the porch with my computer. I sat my computer on an old cast iron stove frame that I normally use as a plant stand. I wish I could find an outdoor table that is about desk height, but small...

 

Rehab or Rebuild

On Feb. 20, Nuckolls County Commissioners met with the public twice, once after the regular meeting and again in the evening, to answer questions concerning the rehab of the current building or the possibility of a new building. A handful of folks...

 

Love my crazy life

Monday was such a nice day that I walked down to the office to check the drop box instead of driving. I’m not loving my crazy life here lately. I’ve been gloomy and negative so often that George has started calling me Eeyore, you know the gloomy don...

 

Love my crazy life

Last week was full of appointments, On Tuesday I took Mom to the dentist, on Wednesday I took myself to the doctor, and on Friday George had appointments at the VA. On the way to the dentist on Tuesday, I got to know the little car better. It’s n...

 

Love my crazy life

I’m having trouble with words today. If I was speaking out loud, I would sound like a bumbling idiot. Words are hard! LOL! The good news is I got a car. We got something with four wheels that goes zoom. It wouldn’t have been something I would hav...

Love my crazy life

What a crummy week I’ve had. It all started last Wednesday after picking up my deliveries. A mile and a half south of Nelson, my car broke down. Our family car has never given us any problems, never even a check engine light, so it was a big s...

 

Love my crazy life

Now that it’s warmed up just a bit, Duke is enjoying the snow. I’m surprised he doesn’t have tunnels burrowed in the backyard, as sometimes all I see of him is his rear end sticking up out of the snow drifts. Unfortunately, he doesn’t stay still l...

 

Love my crazy life

Last Wednesday, while I was making my paper deliveries, I slipped and fell. Falling on ice is so weird, one second you are upright, walking, minding your own business, and the next you’re on the ground looking at the sky. I thought I had broken my f...

 

Love my crazy life

We got a ton of the heavy, wet, fluffy, white stuff yesterday morning. I’m not sure how much though. I scooped about three inches off the sidewalk around 11 a.m., and a couple more filled in its place, so my best guess was about five inches. I...

 

Love my crazy life

Welcome 2024. Christmas at the Bruce house went well. Christmas Day George and I opened our gifts before going to Mom’s house. The gift George worked so diligently on was a keepsake box. He used a wood burner to engrave the inside bottom with the a...

 

Love my crazy life

Mark it on your calendar, 120 days from Dec. 21, because we should get one heck of a storm. I had to drive to Lincoln and back in that fog on Thursday. The morning part of the drive wasn’t bad at all. I left around eight so I would be able to do a l...

At what age did you realize you were becoming your grandmother? For me, it was 45. I own and use a shower cap, I have a handled brush in the shower to wash my back, I keep a back scratcher beside the bed, I have 20 pill bottles on the counter, I...

 

Love my crazy life

I have recently become aware of just how many of you read my ramblings! Thank you! Sorry if I worried anyone with my boo hooing. I really am all right, just frustrated with my body and brain. I am feeling better, the shakiness is starting to go...

Love my crazy life

Duke found his voice! I’ve heard him bark, playfully, but he is not typically a vocal pup. My friend, Linda, popped in the other day. Like always, she walked on in. I knew she was there, I heard the door, but it caught Duke off guard. When he barked,...

 

Love my crazy life

Oh my gosh! The last week has been rough! I told you I had depression and fibromyalgia. Well, I started treatment for depression a couple of weeks ago. It was great at first, I had so much energy, I was waking up in the morning feeling rested, and I...
