Yep it’s winter again

April 10, 2019
After enjoying two lovely days of Spring like weather, it's back to the 40s, rainy, damp and cloudy again. Well it was nice while it lasted anyway. I am taking a class in how to read tarot cards. It's something I always wanted to try so why not? I always like learning new things. So…

    Living in the upper midwest is so bipolar when it comes to the weather. We had one kind of nice spring like day, the calendar says it is Spring and yet it is still cold. A few days ago just a few miles south of us, they had about 2 inches of snow overnight. I…

    March 6, 2019
    Well it's a new month but it still feels like winter here in good old Chicagoland. I am so over it. I want to be some place warm! I have been rereading my old entries, going way back to 2003. It is painful. Mostly it is about my marriage imploding and my sad desperation to…

  • I hope it rains all weekend

    Normally people are unhappy if it rains on the weekend, but I love it. It means the spa will be busy because people can't do stuff outdoors. I need the money! I had a pretty good day yesterday. 4 appointments and some cash tips, always a good thing. I am working tonight and hope to…

    My daughter and I are settling into our new apartment. The main bonuses are it has central air and heating and it's on the first floor. The main issues are lack of storage space and there is an outside light that shines into my bedroom at night which makes it hard to sleep as I…

    July 4, 2018
    Well it was sheer hell but we did it we moved out of our old apartment and into our new one. Sheer hell because it was the hottest day of the year with a heat index of 106. Horrible. I felt sorry for the movers, they were sweating profusely, it's a tough enough job without…
