Wine & Cheese ~ 92nd 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 92nd serving of some whine and cheese!

😦  The Diva Den has a plague of the creeping crud moving through it.  So far I’ve managed to avoid coming down with it which is good, that way I’m not spreading it to The Badge.  My hope is that IF I have to endure this dreaded illness (a flu like bug) it isn’t until he leaves to be out of town next week.  Then I can suffer through without issue of risking his health.  I hate being sick so mentally I have simply determined it ain’t happening.

😦  Acid Reflux attacked me in my sleep last night.  I was out hard, sleeping like the dead, and started choking on acid creeping up my throat.  Most unpleasant and it really ticked me off because I was already in bed after 1am thanks to the final episode of Sons Of Anarchy.  SPOILER ALERT:  I know it was a great way to end the show, but damn I hated seeing Jax die.

😦  I’ve been doing so good lately not missing my little side kick so much, until I made a bowl of popcorn last night to watch SOA.  I climbed in bed with it and my heart hurt some when I realized that my little fur pup wasn’t sitting there with her little head cocked to the side watching me eat it, hoping I’d share.  Sometimes I forget what a constant presence she was until I do some ordinary thing and expect to see her and just her unseen spirit is there.  😦


🙂  I love when my life is full and busy!  This week is packed with things I need to do, or get to experience and I love it!  Tonight I get to serve as one of the hundreds of volunteers that make the Awaited show at Crossroads happen.  I’m going to see the show Friday night, and Saturday I get to see all my Avon sisters for lunch.  I got to spend time with The Badge on Monday evening and he is going with me on Friday.

🙂  One of the best things I’ve done is STOP watching news.  It tries to creep into my life but I shove back.  The world is so full of amazing, good things that I can focus on.  Simple, wonderful things, like holding my 11 week old grandson while he slept during the Bengals game on Sunday.  The face of innocence and sweetness dreaming while in Nana’s arms is one of those fleeting pleasures in life that I have treasured in my heart and memory.  And just about the time he is crawling around, my daughter’s baby will be here to keep my baby-fix fed.  I never imagined that this chapter in my life could be so special.

🙂  There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast!  But it sure is fun messing with them for a while.  Pixel was determined to get me moving this morning.  Purring hard and kneading all around me.  If I peeked out she was nearly nose to nose with me waiting for my eyes to open.  She dug for my hand under the pillow so she could rub against my nails with her head and wouldn’t give up until I finally got out of bed.  I had fun playing with her, it was a great way to wake up.


I love this, it even LOOKS like my cat!

  1. I need that poster. I found out our Cashew has been waking my son up at 5 am meowing in his ear and licking his face. He sleeps with his door shut now. So… guess who woke up to cat ear kisses this morning? yep, moi! LOL
    the sickies were here too. thankfully it was the hit hard and run fast kind and everyone is back on the mend. but my hubby who is away owes me like one million dollars. 🙂
