Right now I am strait that, Miserable.

 

Right now I feel like I am back in my old rut.  I am stuck at home with the parents, and of course, now my brother is here.  We have never really gotten along.  Mostly every thing he does bothers the hell out of me.  His condescending attitude, his way of talking/singing to himself at random times... and his common quirks..  they are all just damn annoying and I'm stuck here with it.

 

At least in a week I ge...

I'm sure I've written on this subject before, but given a deluge of mail that I went through over the last week (and more still stacked to go through), I'm back again to complain about charities that just won't let up on their begging.

Over the last few years I've gone out of my way to make some charitable contributions, mostly in memory of my wife, to causes she liked, or that I like, or that her parents like.  Most have probably been good by me in not coming back to me with solicititat...

The title speaks words.  I learned this phrase while reading comments on a social media sight.  They have come to mean a lot to me honestly.  

I don't know how many of you have heard of the site, but www.reddit.com  is one of my favorite websites on the internet.  It's a social media site, but has a very personal side with it's comments.  It just depends on the 'subreddits' you join, and how you view the site I guess...  but I digress..  

This mornin...

Rumors and predictions that my area could be seeing some snow showers for Christmas day this year.  It's been years since we had snow falling on the day, at least by my memory.  We had white stuff on the ground last year, but it was from a pre-Christmas day blizzard that left enough behind that it couldn't all melt off before Christmas day.

I like the idea of a white Christmas, provided the snow remains light and we don't get a lot of accumulation.  I definitely don't...

My dearest A.,

Here I am writing you again. I must tell you that I don't have lots of things what to say to you and actually there is this one thought in my head.

In different times of my age I've had many best friends or so called ''best friends'' and I could talk to them about everything but when it had really mattered for them to be there for me, they were not. Like last night, my puppy was really sick with cough, sleeping all day, not eating, etc. and I was really sad and vulnerable be...

My dearest A.,I wrote you the last letter on Sunday but unfortunately exactly at the moment I wanted to ''send'' it to you, my internet connection stopped working so I am writing you now. Probably it is even better as more days have passed and I have more things to write to you.It is a very early Thursday morning - 5am. You would ask - why I am up so early on Thursday morning when there is nobody at my place, I don't work and basically I am free all the time? Well... my little puppy is being a l...

I'm glad that most of my Christmas shopping is done.  Yay Giftcards!

Seriously, I have completed most of my annual Christmas shopping, with just a few items left to get, most likely giftcards, but for where would be the question.  Even there, I think I know the answers, it's just a matter of deciding once and for all that where I'm thinking of is where I should be getting the cards for.  I'll figure that all out soon enough and get things wrapped up completely very soon I think...

CMT is running a marathon of episodes of Married With Children.  Gawd, I've missed that series.  Such deliciously trashy humor.

Mostly holiday episodes airing, but they're all very funny.  I may toss on the Bundy-ful life episodes later tonite as I have part of the series on DVD (including those episodes).  Sam Kennison was so great as Al's guardian angel, and of course Al was awesome in accepting his miserable life and wanting to be sure his family never got to enjoy thei...

Today my grandmother died.

She had been on the decline for a good long while.  Alzheimer's disease was sadly a prevalent part of the decline. It's very hard to see a woman who is so strong and such a great character decline in this fashion.

She was known for her craft work, and basically her love of creating anything with her hands.  Needlepoint, quilting, basket weaving, and even some woodwork were her favorite hobby's, and she was definitely quite ...

My dear A.,Another night and another day has passed. There is an empty bottle of wine on the table, unfinished glass of wine, half empty pack of cigarettes, lighter, two unopened bottles of wine, silent mobile phone, bottle opener, my black notebook with a pen in it and camera. As sad as it seems that's all my life is about now. I forgot music, I have still got music. Tonight I am having my best friend over for some ''party'' that will actually be just sitting, drinking wine and talking. Al...

Kitty Patches goes to the vet for her spay surgery tomorrrow.  I know already that isn't going to be that much fun.  First there's the cutting off of food that must happen tonite, and then there'll be the fun of trying to get her into the crate tomorrow (she puts up a pretty good fight against being pushed into the carry crate that we have).  Worse will be getting her into a crate for the trip back home later, as she'll have the lampshade collar on, making it harder to g...

My dearest A.,This is my very first letter to you. I have Christmas in my head and actually all around me. Drinking wine, having awesome sight outside my window - the snow has almost reached the window, neighbors having Christmas lights in their windows and it is still snowing, listening to Christmas music - during the year I had forgotten how amazing voice Bing Crosby has, smell of mandarins, my little puppy girl running around. It is all I've ever wanted - live alone in my own apartment, ...

My wife has a way (she's talented) of showing me just how wrong I am in what I think all the time.  Probably one of the things I love most about her.

 

That being said.. I've been humbled a lot tonight.  Things have changed in our relationship... well not changed.  The situation has been there the whole time I've just never fully accepted it I guess.  So now here I am trying to wrap my head around it finally.  I guess I have just lied to myself about it.. trie...

I took both kids (son and daughter) to a concert on Saturday that we all enjoyed.  Carbon Leaf.  A mix of country/ folk/ Celtic/ rock/ pop music that is, as you can see from that list, a little hard to categorize other than say highly enjoyable.  If you have the chance to catch them, do it.  They put on a nice entertaining show that should leave you well satisfied when you leave the show.

In the thoughts on current events, I have to pause for a bit an include a note about ...

Well, I guess I should write something.

I honestly don't know if what I'm going to type out will make any sense or not.  I'm just sitting here with a blank screen seeing if maybe I start putting my words to the page they will start to make sense in my own head.  I'm sorry for all of you out there who will pull up this article and realize it's a waste of time.  This post isn't for anyone else, and I don't care if anyone reads.. I just guess I might need to push some th...
