1. If I was married 25 years, divorced for 18 years, and my ex dies but we're still best friends, am I a divorcee or a widow?
2. Does anyone else get that commercial stuck in their head where the little fella is singing, "My hiney's clean?"
3. Siri does math very quickly.
4. Frequently, our neighbor's little flies out of the garage, comes over and pees on our flowers, and then runs back into the garage at the speed of lightning. What the heck?
5. Animal crackers don't make good pie crusts.
6. My aesthetician called me "really big" today. I have some extra weight, but I'm not like 200 lbs.
7. I went to the Cheers bar a couple of weeks ago, and not one person knew my name.
8. The last thing I said to my ex-husband was, "When you die, I'm going to have you cremated and your ashes some random person in California with no return address." He died unexpectedly less weeks later.
9. If my baloney has a first name, then why do people say, "That's baloney!" instead of "That's Oscar!"
10. Ice cream makes everything better.
Not Enough Weekend

I can't believe it's already Sunday night. I got up early Saturday and went the gym. I didn't do another darned thing all day except binge watch Bones.

This morning, I got up early and went the gym again. I always take an audiobook listen while I'm on the treadmill. Today, I listened to the Whisper Network by Chandler Baker. I like J.K. Rowlings' because she describes everything in such vivid detail that it feels like you're right there. Chandler Baker describes things too much. There's enough detail that it drags a little. Still, the story is interesting, and I am interested in what happens next.

I went for a facial this afternoon. It was quite relaxing. The aesthetician uses essential oils. Today she had lemongrass, orange, and geranium. It smelled very good.

The rest of the day, guess what I did...yep...binge watched more Bones episodes.

I did plane ticket for trip Boston in a few weeks. I've been looking forward to this trip all year. It's third trip the East Coast, but first Boston. I'm staying a week and am planning to do all the touristy things.

I'm currently writing a journal article for a Computer Science journal. I'm not crazy about the topic, but it's about a project I started working on in 20 and I need write it up and put it rest. I've already published paper on the topic, but when I'm done with this article I'm moving on to healthcare IT articles.

A colleague has been trying to get go Vietnam and present research at a conference, but I'm not going. I thought about it, but I don't think that particular opportunity is the best use of time. I'm not a big fan of international travel. There are some places I would go, but Vietnam doesn't speak . Or maybe it does, and I just don't understand what it's saying.

That's all about . What did y'all do this weekend?

1. The next episode of The Ranch will be coming on Netflix on Friday the th (next week).
2. Why don't people look up how to spell names before giving them to a for a lifetime (ex. Airiel, Chairety). Yes, I know people can spell proper names any way they want to, but why?
3. Did Popeye's and Chick-Fil-A marketing teams get together and create the need for chicken sandwiches to raise sales?
4. Did Popeye's "run out of sandwiches" just to give customers a taste and then take it away, only to ration them later and create a sales frenzy?
5. Why do so many women think Sam Elliott is sexy? He has no meat on his bones.

My Year In a Post

Wow! I can't believe I haven't posted anything in eight months. Sometimes you just need a little break.

What did I do over the past eight months?

- Worked on learning more about my job. It's fairly new-ish and has a long learning curve.
- Went to a bunch of baseball games.
- Went to an escape room.
- Saw a community theater .
- Went to a Gladys Knight concert.
- Took a bunch of cooking classes.
- Wrote 40,000 words on my memoirs. I have interesting memoirs. People might want to read it.
- Published a paper.
- Started two journal articles - one will be finished, the other may have been going in the wrong direction.
- Remodeled some rooms.
- Got kicked of therapy.
- Repeatedly pissed off a cop who is a childhood friend. That was fun.
- Learned to BBQ back ribs and brisket. We'll talk more about that later.
- Got a new landscaping company.
- Got a new roof.
- off a chunk of student loans.
- Implemented a huge new government customer.
- Watched ten seasons of "Bones."

There were some sad times too:

- Lost a 30-something-year-old niece tragically.
- Lost one of my favorite aunts.

As you can see, the happy was much more than the sad.

Ahh, well, you get the picture. I've been a little busy, but I'm happy to be back. What have you all done this year while I was gone?

I've been watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix. Marie is as cute as a button and has lots of personality. The translator is a little weird though. She tries to say everything in the same voice as Marie. That's probably what she's supposed to do, but it seems a little weird.

I've Kondo'd my drawers. Boxes of various sizes hold my underwear, pajamas, and such. The dish towels are in tidy little rolls in the kitchen drawers. My office supplies are compartmentalized. I've taken it a step further and have gotten rid of anything that causes me a bad thought or reminds me of anything negative.

Last night, I watched a documentary about three or four hoarders. They were extreme hoarders. Apparently, hoarding is a form of mental illness that usually becomes more problematic during the person's 50s.

My mom is a hoarder. Up until her late 30s she was quite minimalistic. During her 40s, she opened a resale shop and started buying a lot of stuff to sell. The shop didn't last that long, but she continued to acquire stuff. Over the years, she acquired two houses across the street from each other. She was able to keep the hoarding pretty low-key because she kept everything clean and stored in storage containers.

The hoarding got worse after my dad and sister died. Now it's out of control. She goes to the dollar store, the thrift shop, and garage sales and continuously brings in more and more stuff. She's 79 years old now. My sister keeps trying to get her to get rid of stuff because she doesn't want to have to clean it up after my mother is gone. I told her she might just have to burn the house down. Mom didn't like that.

Maybe we're at opposite ends of the crazy pole. I get rid of everything, and she never gets rid of anything. I guess to each his or her own.
It's Been Awhile

I just logged on and was surprised to see my last post was in July. It has been a busy few months. In July, I was promoted at work. My new job is something else. It keeps me really busy, and it's quite stressful. I'm not complaining though because the raise is nice, and I really like the people I work with.

I've been listening to audio books before bed lately. Fiction never has appealed to me much, but I recently discovered J.K. Rowling's books for adults and I'm in love. I didn't like Harry Potter and was surprised at how much I like these.

What else have I been doing...oh yeah, I found out you can make perfect popcorn in the Instant Pot. I bought some Orville Redenbacher oil and popcorn and some Sur La Table cheddar popcorn seasoning. Yummy!

I've become so boring over the past few years. I don't really have any friends. I used to be much more fun. Now I write scholarly stuff, bitch about the city garbage service, and my best friend is a bird.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be one of those "experts" on Ancient Aliens. I have the hair for it. I'm pretty sure I could come up with some theory - like hummingbirds are really aliens visiting earth for hibiscus pollen - or Earth used to be a safari hot spot for sport dinosaur-hunting aliens. I could say, "Ancient Alien Astronauts theorists believe..." They could put my name up there with PhD behind it, and some idiot would think I know what I'm talking about. I can assure you that after 11-1/2 years of college and 200 thousand big ones I don't know shit.

Oh...one thing I learned today is that every song Willie Nelson, Kris Kristoffersen, or Waylon Jennings sang was made better by the Highwaymen's version. Johnny Cash was okay on his own. Just my opinion...

Okay...well...it's my bed time...later...
What's Important Today

I wouldn't say that my parents were poor when I was a . Cheap...yes. Mom was a semi-functioning opioid addict who worked off and on. Dad made a good living for a high school dropout.

When I got married, I left my parents home with one box of belongings, and that included all my clothes. I was years old, and he was 20. We were poor. Our was born a year and a half later, and then our five years after that. We were still poor.

I got tired of being poor, so I got a job and worked really hard until I got a promotion. We bought a house in a nice neighborhood and things improved. After being married for 25 years, I found myself divorced...and poor again. I got tired of being poor, so I enrolled in college. I didn't stop until I was a doctor...of the PhD variety.

The funny thing is that now that I can whatever I want, I've become a minimalist. It's funny how that works. I started by getting rid of everything that reminded me of my ex-mother-in-law. Things just snowballed from there. Now I'm pretty sure I could live with just my techy gadgets and wi-fi. Things just weigh you down.
I Love Me Some TV

Watching tv is underrated. You know those people who say oh-so-snobbily, "I don't watch tv," or "Who has time for tv?" Those who say it rots the brain? You should be reading books instead? You don't have a life? Screw those people. I love me some tv.

I watch a lot of tv, and my brain is perfectly fine. I'm a doctor, I have a great job, my life is great, and I read tons of journals. On evenings and weekends, I don't want to think. I want to watch something that helps me unwind

Right now, I'm watching That 70s Show on Netflix. I'm a total Ashton Kutcher fan, so I've seen all of The Ranch and Two and a Half Men. I'm a Charlie Sheen fan too.

I've seen all of Hawaii Five-0, NCIS, and Bull. I love crime dramas. Mom is great too. I've seen most of Ancient Aliens, but they need to start showing something besides pyramids. That's been overdone. Now I'm watching LivePD on Fridays and Saturdays.

I do get out of the house. I love baseball and frequently go to games. I occasionally go to a hockey or rugby game too, as well as the occasional concert or movie.

What do people do in the evening if they're not watching tv? I have no idea. I have no young or grandchildren. I do have a cleaning service and yard guy, so I don't have to do those things.

Ah well... rotting my brain right now with Cash Cab and a glass of Roussanne.

About Retirement
Posted:Jul 8, 2018 9:58 pm
Last Updated:Dec 9, 2018 9:20 pm

It seems to me that when it comes to growing older, there are those people who live for retirement and those who plan to never retire. I was talking to my brother-in-law today, who is retired from the military and is proud of the fact that he doesn't have to work anymore. I asked him what he does with his time. He said he goes on cruises, went to Vegas, and visits the local zoo and museums.

I remember my dad's father retiring from being a carpenter. For 20 years after his retirement, he woke up at 4:30 a.m. every day, watched game shows and sat in the front yard. He occasionally walked to a local bar and played dominoes with some friends, but he stopped that in later years. He just sat in the yard until he died.

My dad retired at 62 and my mom at 57. My dad sat on the couch, watched tv, read, and mowed the yard until he died. My mom is the town busybody and gossips and causes lots of problems.

Because these are my role models when it comes to retirement, I've always felt I never want to retire. I guess I'm thinking about this because I turn 60 in two more weeks. I just received a promotion this week, and I'm transitioning into my new job the day after my birthday. It came with substantial increase in pay.

When I don't keep my mind busy, I tend to suffer from anxiety so I try to keep my mind occupied with positive things.

My tells me that there are those people who achieve their sense of self satisfaction and confidence from working outside the home and those who find it by doing whatever they want to do. I need to work to feel good.

I've asked a number of people who are retired what they do because I'm curious about how they fill all those hours. Most people say they travel, garden, etc.

My father-in-law retired a number of years ago, and he stayed busy and active for all these years, but I can't imagine that's the case for everyone. Just pondering...
My New Air Fryer
Posted:Apr 30, 2018 3:28 pm
Last Updated:Jun 7, 2018 8:10 pm
Today I got a new air fryer, and I'm getting ready to try it out for the first time. I thought I'd make French fries and see how that goes for a first attempt. It's way bigger than I expected. I thought it would be about the size of a small coffee maker, but no, it's much bigger than that. It has a 5.7 quart basket, so it's family-sized. I hear it's really a convection oven and not a "fryer" at all. We'll see how it turns out.
You're Grounded

When I was a , I was grounded all the time. You would think I was a bad or something. thing that always got me in trouble was washing dishes. Every time I started washing dishes, my mom would start cleaning out the fridge. If she found a single dirty spot on any dish, she would pull all the dishes out of the cabinets and make me wash them all. I was mouthy about it and would get grounded.

I'm spoiled now. I have some to clean the house and do the yard work, but I'll never forget how much I hated washing the dishes. Still do.

I thought this picture was funny. If only I'd thought of that.
My Thighs Are Amazing

Those would be my chicken thighs...

Seriously, I'm going to brag a bit and say that I'm an amazing cook, and I love chicken thighs. This evening, I put my oven on 400 degrees, and placed a cast iron skillet inside. While the oven...and pan...were heating up, I washed my thighs, patted them dry, and put them in a bowl. I poured a bit of vegetable oil over them and sprinkled them with Tony Chachere's. When the oven beeped that it had reached 400 degrees, I removed the skillet and placed the thighs in it. The skillet was quite hot, and it sizzled the skin on the thighs. I cooked them for 45 minutes, turning them halfway through. OMG...my thighs were amazing.

To go with that, I cooked some fresh green beans in the Instant Pot with chunks of potato, onion, and some chicken broth. Then, I put a couple tablespoons of butter in a pan and melted it, added two tablespoons of maple syrup and let it get hot. Then, I added a package of frozen butternut squash spirals that had been heated in the microwave. I also made a salad of spinach leaves, a handful of sliced carrots, grape tomatoes, and sugar snap peas.

There are leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Yes indeed.

Look who's back. I was gone for quite awhile this time. Sometimes you just need a break.

Someone sent me a message and asked me if I'm a vet. I didn't realize it was because of my "Dr. Heifer" name. I'm not a vet, but I am a heifer. When I was 14, my family lived on a ranch. One day, my dad and I were going to the store when we met the owner of the adjoining ranch. He looked across my dad and said, "Is that yore heifer?" At the time, I was a bit insulted, but hey, I'm fully embracing my heiferness these days. Why the heck not?

As far as the doctor part, it's as in the PhD variety.
