I've Got the F Word


I really don't know what has come over me.

I am just in a really bad FUNK.

Maybe it's the weather.
Freezing rain, rain, fog.
Dreary, gloomy, icky.

Last Friday my father-in-law had a quadruple bypass.
He is doing well.
Except they found out his kidneys aren't great.

They have to do more testing to find out the extent of damage.

I love the man to death
But in a lot of ways
he is his own worst enemy.

When he was pre-diabetic he wouldn't make any dietary changes.
He could just take a pill.

When he started having heart problems he changed nothing.

He kept eating how he wanted.

Honeyman said maybe this surgery will give him a wake-up call.
Cause if he doesn't make changes, what was the point of going through all that?

I worry that now he knows his kidneys have damage
he just won't care to.

I am bored.
I am so ready for warmer weather.
I want to go outside.

I have started an ebook for recipes.
My plan is to do a series of them.
One for dips, another for bars and cookies, and so on and so forth.

I need to clean up the computer.
See about installing windows 8.
It's on sale right now.

I really don't like the whole tile thing on it
but, I've heard if you don't have it, there is no start menu.

But, I have Vista and I think my programs are getting a little tired and in need of an upgrade.

So, why am I bored?
Cause I really don't feel like doing jack shit!

That's what happens when I'm in a funk.


  1. I am sorry about your FIL, Ruth. Sending good, healing thoughts your/his way.


    1. Thanks, Robyn. The doctors are talking like they will be sending him home in the next day or two baring any complications.

  2. I definitely think it's the weather. I hate this freaky cold and rainy weather, and I don' think I get as cold as you. I say we plan a mini vacay to Hawaii...

    1. Alex, that would be great. Can we take a volcano tour?

    2. That's what they said at Pompeii. And look where THAT got them.

    3. Their last words were "Oh look how pretty!"

  3. Bummer about Dad. No matter how much I tried to get my in-laws to eat properly....well, let;s just say deafness can be selective.

    Winter funks are rampant - and I like winter! Just tired of all the grey skies.

    1. Gail, they seem to think I don't know what I am talking about when it comes to eating healthy. I know where you are coming from.
      Warm sunshine would be so nice!

  4. I don't really like the new windows 8. I like my 7

    1. Adam, I never did get 7. I wouldn't get it if my programs would quit acting like they needed an upgrade.

  5. Maybe you should reconsider doing Jack Shit.
    At least then he'll stop pestering Mrs. Shit.
    Just sayin'...

    1. But, is Mrs. Shit one of those people that thinks she doesn't want him but she doesn't think anyone should have him either? I'd hate to get shit slapped.
