I love games and puzzles…

I love video games, puzzles and crossword puzzles…

I do my crosswords in the bathroom while I’m preoccupied. LOL

When I’m bored and my housework is almost done, I love playing video games. My favorite all time game is World of Warcraft. Now that my computer is down and I’m on my laptop that cannot access WoW and all the fantastic graphics, I’m playing UrU… a game that the Cyan (Miller) brothers created…which was started with Myst. They now have a free UrU live game here online for all to play. A link follows…


And for all the people who have never ever played World of Warcraft…here’s a link. You can look at their videos and photos… love this game so much…


Not sure what to do…

I want to finish my book. I want to play video games. I want to watch saved shows on the DVR. Not enough time in a day, and not enough time in each week… sigh.

I’m trying to juggle my time between house cleaning, emails, writing, video games and TV shows that I love. Life isn’t bad when you can’t think of what to do next…and you enjoy doing most everything that you love.

Every other weekend I get to spend valuable time with my Grandson. He sleeps over two nights and I get to make him his meals and spoil him. When my Daughter tells me she has problems with him since he’s been going through puberty, I find it difficult to believe. He’s always been a good boy with me 🙂

Life can become hectic sometimes. I would rather have it hectic any day of the week, than to be alone and bored 🙂

What movies and TV shows do you watch?

Sometimes I just feel like spilling my guts out to whoever will listen. Other times I just want to keep it all to myself. Tonight I’m feeling pretty good:

I had a great weekend with my husband and Grandson. The weather was crazy, both cold and hot, windy and not windy…iffy. All in all, it was a great weekend.

We had a lot of movies in on the DVR and Video player. We save lots of things for our Grandson to watch with us while he’s over the house. He loves, The Middle, Modern Family, The Goldbergs, The Muppets Show, The Simpsons, Colony (new show on USA channel)…I could go on and on.

Hubby and I love The Black List, Sleepy Hollow, and now the new drama, The Family.

What do you watch? My list is endless actually.

Wind, rain, gorgeous weather and then snow????

Last week we had heavy downpours in Virginia. We also had extremely high wind to the extent that we had to tie down our balcony chairs to the table, in fear of having them blow away!!!! We are on the 4th floor. LOL!

This past Sunday it was 65F, sunny and pleasant. A gorgeous day! But guess what?

This Friday we are expecting early morning snow!!!!!! What!? ROFL!

Retirement… how it affects everyone when the man retires…

My husband is officially retired. He took an early retirement because he was having the worst time finding a job. Employers don’t tell us we’re too old, but they can make up another story and just not hire us. In other countries, older people are considered wiser and more experienced. In our country, they are considered ‘Old People’. Useless, and not very desirable.

The thing is this: I’m just as intelligent as I was twenty years ago. My brain function didn’t leave me, and isn’t going to any time soon. I’m stubborn, intelligent, and just plain arrogant when it comes to being seen as ‘OLD’!

There’s more to this story than just whining about growing old. When a working man comes home from work he’s tired. He throws off his work shoes/boots, plops into his favorite chair, watches TV, eats dinner, and just plain falls asleep while sitting in front of the television. At least this is what my husband always did.

Now that my husband is retired, he still does the same things. The only problem is that he hasn’t gotten used to the fact that he’s NO LONGER WORKING! He sits and watches TV… Halfway through the day he goes into the bathroom, or takes out the trash. He sits back down while huffing and puffing, telling me he’s tired and needs to just sit a while. This is what he did when he got home from work!!!! Now he’s doing it after doing NOTHING!!!!

I know he needs a hobby. The problem is that his only really true hobby is playing guitar…OMG I cant even begin to imagine what life will be like if he gets another guitar. He plays okay I guess, but he beats on it more than plays it… it’s very annoying. And now that we live in an adult community, I don’t think it will go over well at all. LOL!

Just ranting and raving 🙂
