You can bust the current economic depression in your own small way, every single day.
Rather than cut things completely out of your budget during these tough economic times, rather…cut back.
When times get tough…eat chocolate.  Yes, you read that right.  I am done with worrying about ‘getting fat’ with everything I eat.  Life is just too short.  I declare WAR on those who disdain chocolate. 
On July 7th, I did something very different;  I left my comfort zone.  I went to an crowded, loud, evening social event and I must say that I really enjoyed it.
This year, 2018, my husband and I celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.
The Couch Cat has a new baby kitten named George. After losing my dear old dog Apollo earlier this year, emotionally, I am not ready (yet) to adopt a new pup.
I have decided that the dividing line between middle age and youth is this:  when you look better with your clothes on than off, you are middle aged.  Let us start with that distinction and go from there.

Confessions of a Couch Cat: An ode to Pookie

My old dog, Apollo the Labrador-god of Olympia, (we affectionately called him ‘Pookie’) went for his final trip to the vet on Monday and I am bereft. 
‘Tis the season to be phoney and jolly and there is nothing wrong with that.   Christmas is a social time, even if you are exhausted and just want a quiet nap or a silent moment to think about your life.
I am addicted to audiobooks these days.  I have always been an avid book reader and being able to use my imagination led by an actor reading ‘to’ me is very enjoyable!

I think there is some ‘other worldly’ mischief maker loose in my house. The little bugger zooms in on our lives and makes everything go haywire at the same time.
