Dear Friends!

No… I’m not quitting or shutting down!

I’m going on a vacation (solo) to visit family in the Netherlands and friends in / near Cambridge England. (My hubby is staying home to mind the house and the ancient Auntie and ancient kitty.)

I will be in a different time zone and will be more jet lagged than usual. Lol

I’m going from 100F to 66F (38C to 20C). I may be borrowing sweaters /jumpers. 🥴😉

My biggest challenge is asking for assistance (wheelchair) to get through security and to the gate. I was going to try without, and then vertigo hit, so I’ll take the assistance.

I’m not that old, but with fibromyalgia, arthritis, and bad back… you get the picture… I’m not yet strong enough for the long airport walks. Vertigo is unpredictable and I don’t want to panic anyone. (It is a mild case of Positional vertigo.)

So all that to say, I hope to post, and to knock myself out of these doldrums!!

If you are still reading… thanks! And see you soon!!



I’m almost dizzy (vertigo)
Mold is in the air
Ragweed in the breeze
And ears are ringing with glee
Meds have been swallowed
More are in waiting
Tea has been sipped
Getting ready for my trip
I mustn’t develop vertigo
Because I’m headed out
I’m tripping! 🤪


Yes, 🥴.

Life is Difficult/Easy, Sad/Happy . . .

. . . all at the same time.

Last week, for example, my granddaughter was born… born on the anniversary of Lynn’s “too early in life’s” death. Then her bday was last week too (she would have been 64).

Thursday, we got to meet our granddaughter and watch the grand boys play.

Friday we thought our cat was in her last hours, but she perked up and is keeping us on our toes.

Then, Saturday we got a call from my other sister-in-law-she was diagnosed with cancer.

All of that in one week! Life is strange/hard/fun/Happy/sad all at once.

See what I mean?
