Wine & Cheese ~ 99th 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 99th serving of some whine and cheese!

😦  It is spider season.  That time of year when spiders begin making their way inside because autumn is bringing cooler temperatures and winter is close behind.  I’m less than thrilled.  I will kill them, but they still make my skin crawl and creep me out!  I have taken to spraying all around with peppermint essential oil and water in the hopes of minimizing the number of times I flip on the laundry room light and have a heart attack.

😦  Tomorrow begins a 5 day stretch at work.  UGH.  I am not happy about that part, as I had agreed to a trade and picked up a day without realizing it was going to be back to back 5 days.  I’ll be dead on my feet come Monday evening at 6:30pm when I clock out.  The money will rock but I will be too darn tired to spend it!

😦  Mom is currently in chemo, this is round 2 of the treatments.  We know it won’t save her life, will only MAYBE buy her some extra days/months, but she is giving it a shot.  Meanwhile all prayers are welcome.  We’d love a miracle.

😦  It is also stink bug season here in the tri-state.  I just killed 2 in the past 5 minutes.

😦  Had some blood work done a week or so back now, and my thyroid is very healthy, no issues.  However I scored a 99.5 for being in menopause.  I did not need the blood work to tell me this, as the hot flashes cause me to sweat so much that I dehydrate really easy if not careful.  Why do women get all the fun?


🙂  Several friends have praised Black Cohosh for their hot flashes, and even had docs recommending it to them for this stage in life.  I purchased some today and it was buy one, get one free with my grocery store loyalty card.  I am very hopeful this will make me less of a walking tropical climate.

🙂  I was able to pick up 6.5 hours yesterday as my unit was working short and 2 of my friends there sent texts asking me to come in and help.  I contacted a supervisor and was told to please come in so I made time and a half for that.  I am already into over time for the next pay check so that made it better.

🙂  The Bengals won the first 2 regular season games.  I realize that this means nothing at this point, but I am really happy.  Makes owning those Bengals scrubs worth it on a Sunday when I’m working.  🙂

🙂  My favorite Tuesday TV shows were back last night! NCIS and NCIS:New Orleans.  That made my day, as I love those shows.  And tomorrow night Scandal is back, and Friday, Blue Bloods.  The only ones missing are The Walking Dead and Downton Abbey.  All in good time though!


Per several women I know, this works.  You can also hide ice cream sandwiches in empty frozen veggie bags in the freezer.  So, our chocolate and ice cream is safe ladies, just disguise it and you never have to worry again.
