Day 142

You know what eating all these ramen noodles, soup etc and hanging out everyday at my mother's has earned me this last 9 months?
Enough money to get out of town for the week.

I have a bus ticket, hotel booked and leave tomorrow and will be back at the end of the week.  Finally, a chance to take a small break from everyone and everything.

And I'm doing this "old school style"   tech free.   Just one small bag, a pen and a notepad.

I'm hoping this kick starts my creativity and knocks that writer's block walls down.   I haven't written anything on my novel in over a year, nor have I done much on the internet more then a few sentences to a scattering of short stories I have on two other blogs.

Catch up at the end of the week.

Day 141

All My Children is in it's last few days of the show.  After 40 years of being on air, they are winding down all the plots, characters and ending.

If you're a fan of the soap like I am, then you have been glued to your sets for the last month.

I've mentioned a while back elsewhere on the internet about how I love the idea that two of the characters, Tad and Dixie, have been able to sense when the other is around.  It gives a bit of weight to the idea of soulmates.  And if you know me, then you know it's something I believe in majorly.

This is also the beginning of all the new tv shows for the season.  So far, I'm really digging on the new one  Ringer  or as it's called around here "the new buffy"  as it's starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.   

Who, some may remember, was on All My Children for a few years as the original Kendal.  Should be interesting to see how the last few days of AMC come together.

This has been your randomness for the day.

Day 140

Had my doctor's appointment today.  As I said on my main blog, it went... oddly.   My doctor basically told me nothing will change and I will have chronic issues for the rest of time, then told me I need to loose 40 pounds.

What every girl wants to hear right.

When I got to mom's, she decided she wanted to rent a movie, so we did video on demand and got "Madea's Big Happy Family"   bit of a disappointment compared to the others in the Madea series.  But, it's got me wondering if the next one will pick up where this one left off?  

And as far as the blogging goes,  wondering what happened to the STATS ?   I logged in and it seems that I have suddenly a series of 0 in my hits... as in all time history of the blogs 0.
I thought all the glitches on Blogger was over but seems I was wrong.

Day 139

Been a long week.
I see as I went to read one of my favourite blogs - the Julie and Julia Project -  that it's gone!  That's sad really, that blog was the inspiration for millions of us.
Sitting here today, feeling like I should be getting a start on Hallowe'en.   Thou, I have no idea what that start might be.
I've got a nice storage bin of material I bought over the last few years,  maybe I'll trying sewing a tablecloth for Hallowe'en or something?  Thou, my sewing skills suck worse then a leech.
Tried making a pumpkin loaf yesterday.  Which, I've made a hundred times, should be able to make with my eyes closed; only for some messed up reason I added an egg to the recipe.   The recipe does not call for one.  So the loaf sunk and all you could taste was the egg.  I made it over at mom's and was talking to her at the time.  This is what happens when I get even the slightest distracted, ruin the recipe.
