Wine & Cheese ~ 93rd Serving

wineandcheese2Welcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.

Most Wednesdays 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 93rd serving of some whine and cheese!

😦  I decided that a flu shot was in order, since it is moving through everyone I know it seems.  My arm hurts!  I rubbed it like they say to do but dang it still painful.

😦  Read, after the fact, that this year’s flu vaccine is only about 50% effective, as they guessed wrong about the strains that would be going around and missed the most prevalent one.  Oh well, 50% is better than none at all.

😦  My favorite pair of jeans are falling apart.  I bought them already slightly loved at the thrift store near by.  It’s my favorite way to buy jeans, already soft and broken in.  But this pair is starting to rip apart and are so well worn that it is going to be time to get new ones.


🙂  The scale is moving D-O-W-N again!  I have a serious goal so that helps.  And I’m taking intentional actions to achieve my goal, like logging every bite that enters my mouth, every ounce of water, every minute of activity and walking distance.  I refuse to give up.

🙂  It’s pretty awesome when you hit the end of your day, and have been so careful to eat right that you have to have a beer in order to hit your minimum calorie range on your SparkPeople account!  That is just breaking my heart!

🙂  I got my roots done and sporting pink in my bangs again this week.  Was purple last time for The Badge as that is his favorite color. So glad I went back to blond.


I thought of my daughter-in-law when I saw this, and so my daughter.


And this is a dose of “awww”, my grand-pup’s first experience with Christmas lights!

  1. awwww…. hopefully doggie didn’t bit the cord like our cat did! so far he hasn’t pulled them off the tree yet – small miracles!
    I never get the flu shot for exactly the reason that they only guess at what flu it will prevent. so far we’ve been pretty lucky in this house. we get just sick enough to give our immune systems a work out, but we are never down and out. except hubby – the one person who got the flu shot (due to his job) and ended up with pneumonia. go figure.
