Random thoughts

1.  I'm still alive but I haven't been on the computer much.

2.  Mom's been doing pretty well.  She finally got her new glasses.

3.  I've been doing some organizing, not so much cleaning or losing weight.  Hopefully, that will be coming soon.

4. I've been trying to stay away from the TV news.  Could the news be anymore depressing or frustrating?  Also, I think Ohio is going to hell in a handbasket, ha!!

5.  I can hardly stand this weather anymore.  We got about an inch or so of snow today.  There are some buds on the trees and some people's tulips are coming up though.

6.  I couldn't believe all the #1's in March madness went down.  It will be fun to see who wins.

7.  I've been watching some stuff on the OWN network.  I really like Lisa Ling's show Our America.

8.  We're going to go on a vacation.  I'm going to have to get on a plane.  I haven't done that in probably 25 years.  Yikes!!

9.  We got rid of some of our pay channels.  The only one we kept was HBO.  I was kind of sad to get rid of Showtime.  I really liked the Big C but that's probably the only show I regularly watched and it's been on hiatus.  

10.  See you around ;-)

Hi, Viki! Here in neighboring Pennsylvania we got some of that icky snow, too. Make sure you post vacation pics.

Hi there Viki, nice to see you. Glad you are going on a vaca...I can't wait to go this summer. We have no pay channels, it was ridiculous what we pay in cable alone.

Hi Viki! I'm pretty much right there with you on all your random thoughts! Warmer, sunny weather will surely help us all!

Hey there Viki without a C, good to see ya again. I haven't been as bloggy as usual either, think it's the weather...

Glad your Mom's doing ok, that you're going on vacation (the plane ride will be fun..really) that you're saving money with the TV and that you're still staying warm. Spring is coming....

I put myself on a news diet years ago, only watch one newscast a week. My life is better for it.

Love to see you spilling your words all over the page, telling your truths and venting a little.

Don't wait so long to log on again!

I am looking into my thyroid. Everything else does nothing. Diets, ha! When you stop eating like a bird, the weight comes back double. I can exercise and sweat to high heaven,and hydrate and still gain weight.

I read that women who are deficient in Iodine and Iodide are fatigued, over weight etc. I am going to talk to my doctor. SHe has had thyroid cancer.

Cable is ridiculusly expensive. I want to switch over to Direct TV or Dish, but it's like pulling teeth from my husband.

I hope you go somewhere warm and sunny for your vacation., like Florida! Enjoy!~Ames

Good for you for simplifying your life. I know I get to the place, where I can't stand to watch the news anymore and just turn it off. If there a connecting reason why we're all depressed and drinking and taking anti-depressants to make us feel better?
