Time to face the strange." Okay, so I'm a David Bowie fan.! It had to come out some time.

Seems that just when I get used to something it changes; sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad.

When we left the house this afternoon to run some errands (I love how "run errands" sounds. I first heard it when I was a child and had no idea what my friend's mother was talking about. We didn't talk like that in my house.), the lowest price of gas we saw was $3.59(9). When we returned, that gas station had gone up six cents! Why didn't we stop earlier? Coulda, shoulda, woulda - bummer. (btw, we say could have, should have, would have - I can be a grammar naz*)

There is no reason for the gas prices to be rising except for people in charge of such things listening to speculators. Insane.

A good change? Since I have been taking a spoonful of local honey each day, my allergies are not bad! The local bees use the local allergens to make the honey and it is a heck of a lot easier than allergy shots! I dare you to try it...

Another good change is that Himself finally got his hearing tested and the VA payed for his hearing aids. It is amazing the things he hasn't heard before such as the click of the mouse on his computer. The only bad thing is that he hasn't worn them in two days. ~heavy sigh~ Huh? Eh? I was enjoying not hearing those two words.

Any hoo, if we don't change I suppose we stagnate.

From what I see of this blog entry, my kids aren't the only ones with ADD. Just checking in and hoping your changes are mostly good! g


  1. Change is good. Sounds like you've had a busy day. Thanks for posting. Also, you've won an award on my blog. Check it out.

  2. I was glad to hear the honey thing works, I have terrible hayfever and was recommended to have a spoonful of local honey each day. I'm going to try it this year!

  3. Hi Gail,

    I have a confession... I'm a David Bowie fan too! (big smile)

    Changes, hmm, something I'm not good with, but I think as I get older I seem to accept change a bit better. Most of the time there's not a lot I can do to change back the change, so either I like it or lump it.

    Hey, I have learnt something. I had no idea that taking a spoonful of honey each day helps with allergies. How wonderful!

    I love fresh honey, and honeycomb. In my earlier teens a friend of mine that I stayed with often lived in the country and they had bee's, so I got to eat fresh honeycomb often.

    Good news about the hearing aids. I guess they will take sometime for him to adapt to having this whole new world of sound again.

    I'm blessed with excellent hearing, but I get a bit cranky with things get really rowdy.

    Well I see ya later, check in with you tomoz!

    Keep smiling. Big hugs, Kerrie


  4. Gail, popped back to let you know that I left a hug for you over at Nita's.

    It was a group hug.


    You're a good friend to me and I'm so thankful, one of the luckiest girls of the planet!!!

    Thanks for always checking on how I am, and thanks for being by my side on this life journey.

    Your support, encouragement and love means more to me than you will ever know.

    Okay, time for a tight squeeze now (((Gail)), bright smiles to you, love me.
