This last month was chalked full of appointments. Some were of a medical nature while others were dental. What’s the difference? Actually, as far as I can tell, there isn’t any difference between the two. Both types of doctors provide services that keep us healthy or, hopefully, restore health to us. It’s just done in … Continue reading What Have I Been Doing?
I thought I’d try my hand at telling you something about my past for a change. I don’t consider it really a memoir-type feature though. But, then again, maybe that’s what it is. You tell me. § Photo-invoked Memory As the caption below the photo says, this is not my snapshot. When I saw … Continue reading Photo-invoked Memory & Quantum Notes
There are events in my life I’ve begun to tell you, my online cronies, but I haven’t followed through with what has transpired. I’ve either decided the occurrence was too drab compared to what is probably going on in your lives or I thought it might be deemed imprudent. The latter is probably unlikely but … Continue reading #thepersonalside: Mid-Year Wrap-Up
In past years, my husband and I had been giving our home a lick and a promise most of the time. It hasn’t been just the cleaning either. We neglected to keep track of repairs and upgrades too. I hate to admit it but some of this was due to laziness. However, a larger part … Continue reading #thepersonalside: On the Homefront
Something has changed since I was sick with the flu and bronchitis in February. Yet, when I try to get a handle on it, it slips away from my grip. Has anything like this happened to you? I know that I’m not as wound up as I was at the first of the calendar … Continue reading #thepersonalside: Spring 2018
Being an introvert can make a person happy when he or she is by his or herself. I know that I enjoy my own company while my husband is at work five days of the week. I have all the control over what I do. After a little pick-up through the house, my house looks … Continue reading #thepersonalside: Getting Out of My Head
I had a diary as a child. If I remember correctly, I received it in my ninth birthday. It was the typical one most girls got during that period in time, with its pink cover and a drawing of a girl with a ponytail on the front. Of course, it had its small lock and … Continue reading #thepersonalside: Taking On a Habit Again
Christmas is less than two weeks away. Am I ready for it? As far as gifts go, I’m all set. Decorations? My husband and I don’t do that anymore. Just the thought of getting out those boxes, putting up the decorations, taking them down, and putting them away again makes us heave a sigh of … Continue reading #thepersonalside: The Winter Execution
We are on the backside of the first full week of National Novel Writing Month. As with all the years before, I am declining the invitation. Does this mean I’m not serious about writing? I’m sure there are a few authors/writers who would answer with an unequivocal “Yes.” Some people write because they love the … Continue reading #thepersonalside: NaNoWriMo? Nope.
When I was a child, I was fortunate enough to be able to trust almost everyone I knew. I did not hide secrets from my parents. I, readily, owned up to anything I did wrong, whether it be a mistake or from mischief. Sure, I had to face the consequences for whatever I do or … Continue reading #thepersonalside: Distressful Suspicions
Lee Martin, an established author with several books under his belt, wrote a blog post in June, Strings of Cause and Effect: Writing Our Ancestors. I found it interesting how his imagination is able to fathom how events had happened for his ancestors onto that life progress that lead to him. My thoughts on this … Continue reading #thepersonalside: Strands of Respite
Dan Antion, the owner of the blog, No Facilities, asked a question a little over a month ago that I would like to explore in my own perspective. What Happened to Our Independence? He was not talking so much about the U.S. as a nation as he was addressing the general attitude of so many … Continue reading #thepersonalside: Independent Thinking
