Wine & Cheese ~ 84th Serving

wine n cheeseWelcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.


Every week on Wednesday I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times. I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs. I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well. I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal. If you’d like to read the past editions of Wine & Cheese just click HERE for all of the past postings. Sit back and join me now for the 84th serving of some whine and cheese!

😦  Menopause sucks when you have to go out on a job site and the structure is sealed up and no A/C or open windows.  Glad that is not a normal part of my job.

😦  Nothing like being rudely awakened in the middle of the night by the weather radio going off in advance of an approaching severe thunderstorm.  Then finding that your cat is nervously “making biscuits” (kneading) the pillow next to your head, purring in fear.  You know it isn’t going to be good, even though there is no storm just yet, when the animals get freaked out.  Then just as you are drifting back to sleep it goes off yet again, only now there is thunder and a LOT of lightening, wind blowing and reports of hail.  I was not happy and I’m exhausted today.

😦  I am having serious issues with sweet cravings.  This has to stop.  I’m doing so good and do not need to be thinking about junkie calories.


🙂  I am really excited about the second class I am taking, this one for work, which starts tonight.  I LOVE learning new things!

🙂  The other class is 22 lectures long, for Nouthetic (Biblical) Counseling.  My goal is to be a certified biblical counselor.

🙂  I am a little slow at discovering this, no doubt, but I figured out I could save a bundle on those instant oatmeal breakfasts.  I just use a 1/4 cup of regular, old fashioned oats, a little brown sugar, and the smallest setting on my Keurig!  All goes into a large coffee mug and after a few minutes I have breakfast.  For about the same price as one or two of those prepackaged servings in a cardboard cup I have 40+ servings!

🙂  I achieved President’s Recognition Club with Avon, guaranteeing me 40% earnings the remainder of this year and all of the next calendar year!  I also will be Avon’s guest at the PR Club gala dinner next Spring and receive free gifts from Avon.  My Mrs. Albee award figurine for this year is GORGEOUS!  She is my 3rd one now, and I love it.  I have my sites set on Honor Society by the end of the calendar year, that would be a first for me.


This is just funny to me.  Farting fruit!

  1. my kids will bust a gut over that commercial…. and then probably have a farting contest. oye.
    I have found that drinking water with lemon and lime in it, has seriously curbed my sweet cravings. I have no idea why and I don’t know the science to explain it: it just works.
