October 17, 2019
I had posted this entry in August, received a note from Jay; a good note which I really appreciated but upon re-reading the entry and the note, I had to make this entry private. It still hurt too much to put the complete story in words. But now I think it is time. No amount…

  • Trying to Lighten My Mood…
    October 13, 2019
    ...by writing on OD. I've been very stressed lately, having to deal with property management companies and being more or less forced to quickly find another apartment. My apartment property management company was apparently fired by the property owner and the "new" management company has given me...

  • Up Very Early… Again
    October 9, 2019
    Before retiring, getting up very early was a necessity. I wanted to enjoy my coffee, work out, shower and put on my exterior person. That is; full make up, hair styled, corporate clothing (before I became a techie). Then, the 65 mile drive to work in Houston, trying to beat the heavy traffic. The...

  • Fricking San Antonio Weather
    September 25, 2019
    I am so tired of days and days of 100 degree plus weather. It's time for Fall, which began 24-September, to step in and lower the temperature here. I checked the weather for 24-September-2018 and the high was 79. 7 fricking 9. I can't take my long walks in 1 fricking hundred degree weather. It's&...

  • Drivers License
    August 22, 2019
    For years I've renewed my drivers license on-line - so easy. But, I was apprehensive about this year's renewal. My age and the photo on my license; so old. I was correct. I received a letter from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) telling me I could not renew the license on-line this yea...

  • Summertime
    August 11, 2019
    I'm trying to remember when I began hating the season of Summer. From 1980 until 2005, I lived in the Texas gulf coast area; different cities/towns but the same area - Brazosport. Living there meant, first, inundating oneself and children with insect (mainly mosquito) repellent. The area was know...

  • Doctor’s Appointment Today Edited
    August 2, 2019
    And I got dressed too early. I guess because I'm nervous. There's no reason for the nervousness; it's just a checkup and I'm doing OK. Maybe because I'll be riding the bus downtown and walking several blocks in the downtown heat to the doctor's office. I hate walking in the summer heat. By the ti...

  • Lunch with My Son
    July 21, 2019
    My son, his love and I will be meeting for lunch today in San Marcos. San Marcos is about half way between Austin and San Antonio and our meeting there is much better than either of us driving for more than an hour (almost two) visiting our respective homes. I'm not looking forward to the…

  • Procrastination
    July 17, 2019
    I'd forgotten how addictive OD can be. I'm sitting here, in front of my computer, thinking, "OK. Get up, go¬† to the post office, go to Home Depot, go to Walmart, go to HEB." What AM I worried about? I'm retired, for Pete's sake. I have lots and lots of time.

  • Suck It Up, Stupid!
    July 15, 2019
    That's what I kept telling myself before falling asleep last night. I had spent not a little time on the internet looking for an apartment in Austin or here in San Antonio. A place where I didn't have the responsibility of taking the garbage carts (solid waste, organics, & recyclables) out to...
