Two Hands

I never realized as a right handed person, how much I do with my left hand. Adjusting to using one hand is difficult. Then I thought about people, like injured veterans who lost limbs or were damaged in some other way and my small carpal tunnel injury pales in significance. We use our hands for … Continue reading Two Hands

As I Lay Sleeping…

As you read this I am sleeping. I am getting my hand fixed. It's a common thing. People like me who work with their hands wear them out. I have put this off a bit longer than I should have, but that's normal for me. I have put my health on the bottom of my … Continue reading As I Lay Sleeping…

I Have No Idea

No, really I don't. I have no idea why people make things so difficult. Just do what has to be done and leave the extra baggage on the side of the road. What happened was, I wanted to change something. Very simple, click clack boom. The person who was supposed to help me change it … Continue reading I Have No Idea

Gloomy Day

Today is a dark, cloudy day I know we need the rain. I am just wishing for sunshine. It is easy to feel sad on days with no sun. When someone you know is looking sad say, "Cheer up!" Sometimes humans just can't. Say happy things anyway. On the flip side, you may never know … Continue reading Gloomy Day

Things Happen

As life goes I have a good one, but as normal life goes unexpected things happen. Hence, the reason I am late with my post today. I am proud of myself, I didn't freak out when I didn't get to post on time. I was calm on the outside and screaming inside. I used to … Continue reading Things Happen

I hired a transcriptionist to do the typing. This should be fun. I don't consider … Continue reading Helping Hands

Don’t Argue over the Small Stuff

Why is it that most of the arguments in a home between family are started over small insignificant things? Things like whose turn to clean something, why did that person do the thing, or why did they not do the other thing. When you feel the tingle of that urge to criticise a family member … Continue reading Don’t Argue over the Small Stuff

It’s Friday

We have been conditioned from an early age that Friday starts the weekend. Weekends are for freedom. Work weeks are Monday through Friday. When someone says I have a different work schedule and my Monday is a Thursday, the weirdness of their week seems unnatural to us. What would happen if we had no boundaries … Continue reading It’s Friday

Don’t take it Personal

Usually a person's attitude is not because of you. Anger is an emotion that humans use to respond to threat or stress. It can be a real thing or some crazy thing we make up in our mind. Still, we control our own emotions. We react to how people treat us. So, how you respond to … Continue reading Don’t take it Personal

Life is better unscripted.

I love when good things happen unexpectedly. It is often small things that make me happy. A spontaneous hug or kiss from my favorite human can make my day. A letter or card from a friend in the mailbox always makes me smile. Let's not get so caught up in all the chaos of this … Continue reading Life is better unscripted.
