To do lists- we all have them.  I find that I have a hard time keeping up.  Mostly because some of the projects are large.  Seems that for every one I cross off, two more take its place.  The current project is scanning and labeling all the old photo's - I have three generations worth.  At times, it is downright mind numbing.  Some are not getting scanned.  Why on earth do we need to keep a photo of a cabin that we don't know who the owner is or where it is even?  Really!  All it says on the back is 'This is where we live, look at all the big pine trees we have".  Really!  Note to self:  Label all photo uploads so a stranger could figure them out.

Speaking of allergies

They decided to kick in big time today.  Right in the middle of lunch I start with the sneezing, itchy eyes and throat, runny nose.   I sound like an ad for allergy meds,   What a pain.

So, two calls come in succession

Neither one is anyone I want to talk to.  One number does not come up with a name in caller id.  I did a google search and many people have an issue with this #.  When they try to call it back - they get a 'mailbox full' message.  Someone says the $ used to belong to the DNC.  Sounds Plausible.  The next call shows up as XX for Congress.  

I hate "voting" season.   I'm not a phone person in normal times, I definitely am not one when all the calls coming in are begging for $.  The politicians should get a clue.  The economy is in the tank - we have no $ and what we do have will go to races close to home - not across the country.  Just because I signed your petition or received your newsletter - doesn't mean I can afford to pay for your campaign.

So, 2012 is not starting out all that well.  Have been bothered with allergies this past week, thanks to all kinds of things growing due to the rain and warm weather.  Started getting worse on the 1st.  Now today, I went to the dentist to get a cavity filled and a new crown on that tooth.  When the crown came off, it looked like a root canal was in order.  The dentist was flummoxed.  Could not figure out how on earth I got a cavity where this one was.  Turned out after grinding for the fix - he found the game changing issue.  The tooth had fractured below the gum (and crown) line.  There is no way to save this tooth - so off with a temp filling and a referral to a periodontist to get an implant.  :-(
    Since it is a new year, I decided to try something new.  A blog.  Since I have a lot of interests but am not sure I want to stick specifically to one of them (and since I have no followers to direct me :-)  I think I will just remark on things that are in my mind.

    For example, have you ever thought that there should be a giant billboard outside of all malls proclaiming:  "Honey, just because they make it in your size, doesn't mean you should wear it!"?  I figure that since I have been around long enough and been enough different sizes (none of them actually the "right" size) I can be honest on this topic and not worry about being politically correct :-)
