These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Day at home

I didn't go to work today. No, it wasn't about the weather. In fact, the big storm didn't happen here today. The northern part of the state got blasted, but I got nothing here. There were some flurries off and on all day, but nothing stuck to the ground. It may still snow tonight, but probably just an inch or so.

I stayed home because I woke this morning and was nearly unable to walk. Fibromyalgia had not just reared hit's ugly head, but was showing it's naughty butt as well. I seriously could barely walk from room to room, the worst I've been in a long time. I'm guessing the weather changes are what did me in.

I've slept off and on almost all day. Finally, by late afternoon, I woke feeling relatively decent. I can't say I'm feeling good, but I can at least walk without every step causing pain. I hope tomorrow will be a good day. I can't say I minded being home, sleeping and cuddling with the pups, but I need to get back to work.

Don't ya just love days in bed .... at last when you're not sick, just debilitated?  LOL! Hey, I'll take my joy where I can find it!


  1. Hope you're feeling better. I took a mental health day last week. Just exhausted. I never even got dressed which is rare for me. It felt good to just really relax!

  2. The last time I spent a day in bed was two years ago when I had the flu. I don't want to repeat that experience!

  3. I'm feeling better this morning, and I'll go to work. I'm still not top notch, but enough better to leave the house, for certain.

  4. Well, I hope you are feeling more top-notch by now! I enjoyed 3 partial days in bed last week when I caught some virus-type thing. I was not very sick, but I was tired and I loved staying in bed, so I know what you mean about that. I am incapable of staying in bed when I'm well, even if I'm tired, so that experience was oddly enjoyable.


  5. BS, I'm not quite top notch, but better. Thanks for the thoughts!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
