Wine & Cheese ~ 1st Serving 2019

wineandcheese2I used to devote my Wednesday blog post to whining and then time and life got in the way. But for 2019 I’m back to a regular serving of Wine & Cheese!

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 search past postings. Sit back and join me now for a serving of some whine and cheese!

😦 I am beyond tired. Not really burned out but just emotionally and mentally exhausted. I love my job, so very much, but sometimes dealing with folks who have dementia can break you down. I’m grateful for this day off and even more so that I am off for 3 straight days this coming weekend. I was beginning to feel as if I was never home.

😦 I miss all the grandsnugglers! I have something going on, lost my voice, head was stuffy and throat was sore. While I never did have a fever, I was dragging like a sloth on New Year’s Eve at work and most of yesterday. Loads of caffeine and B complex vitamins got me going but I wasn’t willing to risk getting the boys all sick so I didn’t go visit my daughter or daughter-in-law today. I will see all of them over the 3 day weekend but missing all those hugs and giggles.

😦 I HATE the new editor on WordPress. I was able to swap back to edit this post but seriously it is NOT user friendly. Everything I need to write my posts is in front of me in the classic editor but I couldn’t find it in the newer block editor. PLEASE LEAVE MY CLASSIC EDITOR IN PLACE!

😦 I got rid of cable. In order to cut expenses I decided I don’t watch enough TV to make it worth the money and a good portion of what I did watch wasn’t worth the money to pay the electric to have the television turned on. 


🙂 While I don’t have cable, if I want to watch a favorite show I can always watch online or visit my sister, as we like many of the same shows. And I’m making much better use of my time now. Heck maybe that novel will finally get written and go from outline to book form! 

🙂 It is overcast today, but I’m off, resting, and enjoying popcorn and coffee while I write. This is a very very very good thing! Two of this girl’s favorite things is never bad! I should probably consider a nap too but then the concern is not sleeping well tonight.

🙂 I want to rename my Internet router. Thinking I’ll lean toward a Harry Potter theme. I love those movies. Might have to fire stick one tonight while I crochet!

🙂 Looking forward to this new year and all the opportunities ahead!


I usually like to put something funny here, but this made me think. So why not start the new year with something to ponder!
