It's been awhile since I wrote anything here. It was easier to find things to post about while going through my cancer and radiation treatments. After that, nothing really seemed worth writing down. I was still recuperating emotionally, I suppose, and feeling a need to have some space to myself. Even if that space was … Continue reading HUMAN AGAIN
Friends and Other Strangers
Well, I'm fast approaching my fourth week out of radiation. Still have some itchy skin, and some bizarre throbbing pain every now and then that I assume is a sign of continued healing. They said the radiation would keep affecting me for 2 weeks after we actually stopped, and it did. However, I was so anxious to … Continue reading DONE
THE SURGICAL STORY – OR BREAST CASE SCENARIO
I can't help myself. Dad would have liked that title. Update: Thursday, in preparation for the lumpectomy on Friday, I returned to the nuclear medicine lab where I'd had the MRI and all that jazz done. They needed to give me some sort of injection. Unfortunately, I Googled what sort of injection I needed before … Continue reading THE SURGICAL STORY – OR BREAST CASE SCENARIO
OH NO, NEXT DOOR!
Oh no, oh no! My neighbors on Next Door have been reprimanding each other for the vitriol being spewed. As a result, one of my favorite (most obnoxious) neighbors has chosen to leave the site completely! Goodbye, Marsha. You will be missed. We will now start keeping track of how many people are signing off … Continue reading OH NO, NEXT DOOR!
FUN WITH NEIGHBORS AGAIN
I HAVE to live in the most bat$#!t neighborhood on Next Door. Enjoy this debate. I apologize for the length, but it was just too wonderfully ridiculous to waste. SUSPICIOUS VEHICLE 2d ago Kimberly Hey neighbors there is a gray 2008?? Ford Mustang on our street with a middle aged Hispanic man sitting in it, … Continue reading FUN WITH NEIGHBORS AGAIN
FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 3
The great peacock debate, courtesy of Next Door. Because sometimes people have too much time on their hands and aren't irritating enough to their neighbors. Beverly 5d ago I'm thinking about maybe getting a peacock with a couple of hens with the idea of establishing a free range neighbor flock. They would be noisy, especially during … Continue reading FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 3
FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 2
The Next Door app discussed in Fun with Neighbors, Part 1, continues to inform and entertain. I believe I mentioned something about Thanking and Flagging in my previous post. "Thank" and "Flag"" are beneath each comment posted. Sort of like the "Like" "Comment" or "Share" options in Facebook. Well, I started seeing a lot of people complaining … Continue reading FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 2
FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 1
For those of you who haven't heard of it, Next Door is an app I became aware of after I moved to my new neighborhood in October. I was told it is a private group that includes people in your neighborhood who exchange helpful information on lost pets, trash days, suspicious people, pet sitters, good local … Continue reading FUN WITH NEIGHBORS, PART 1
This has been one of those weeks. Since attending a funeral on Monday, the following days consisted of what appears to be a coordinated effort by a number of people to either drive me scream-crying into the street, or to force me to punch someone in the face. "I am going to punch someone in … Continue reading POW
