March Madness Monday

Madness is defined as doing the same thing over and over while expecting different outcomes. Or at least that’s my definition. I need to try something different. I’m gonna get right on that. Eventually.

So, there was a week and a weekend. Some stuff happened. Other stuff didn’t. End of story. Going back to bed now. Or not.

Let’s see. What did happen? Very little writing. Some health issues. A book trailer (see below). Reading. Baseball. A joint celebration of a 93 year-old Navy vet (who served on the Enterprise) and an 80 year-old army sergeant. Good cake and ice cream. Awesome veterans. Lots of social media drama. I stayed out of it. Reading/listening. Stress. Laughter. Hugs from a BIG 5 year old. (His b-day check up said he’s the size of a 7 year old. Yikes!)

Still trying to befriend (domesticate) the two feral kittens. I’ll make them house cats if I can catch one or both. Met the new neighbors while I was out feeding/calling the cats to eat. They’re…interesting. I think it’s grandfather/grandmother (but not sure about grandmother), son, daughter-in-law and grandsons. Granddad has a long beard. Son has tattoos, including on his head. They’re friendly. They wave. I wave back. They have a big trailer that makes me very curious about what they carry in it and what they do. (Not in a bad way, in an I’m-a-nosy-neighbor-who-writes way.) I suppose I could just ask…huh?

We’re coming up on opening day. I’m getting to see the starting lineup for the Cardinals in the spring training games now. Fun times. Speaking of watching baseball on TV, I wish we had a Menard’s. Just sayin’…

The NCAA basketball tournament is going on. *yawn* Round ball is sooo not my game. Nothing against it, just…not interested. OU is in it and pulled off a first-round upset. There were several of those, evidently. People’s brackets are blowing up. Which makes me sound like I care. Nope. But I have friends who do and I’m hearing about it.

I’ve been bouncing around on my reading/listening. I rated a book low because the author (who’s “facts” are problematic on a good day) got it all wrong. It made me sad because I LIKED the characters and the story line. I just spent so much time ranting (rather than, you know, actually listening to the book) about how she totally screwed the pooch on major plot points dealing with law enforcement stuff. I’m also revisiting a series that I tried several times to read the first book and just couldn’t get beyond the first several chapters because…reasons. Listening to them has eased some of the hot-button issues. There are also several upcoming books that I’m looking forward to. More about them when they drop.

And that’s pretty much my life. As I’m typing this on Sunday, I have a sty that’s all but closed my left eye. I’m headed off for hot packs. By the time you read this, it’ll either be better or I’ll still be applying hot packs. LOL Happy Monday and may this week bring you nothing but good!

Oh, and my attempt at a book trailer….

  1. I was thinking about the madness quote myself yesterday. You’ll get it when you see my post for today.

    Sorry to hear about your health issues and your sty. :hugs: I hope everything gets better soon. Good luck with the kittens! Yay for baseball! Love the trailer. =o)

    Nothing much going on here. Reading, baseball, golf. Avoiding people on the internet. I got out for some fishing yesterday, but only caught one little bluegill. I should’ve stayed home and cleaned. Today is for cleaning. And groceries.

      Naw. You needed the fresh air. The internet is so freaking toxic right now. And I just want to shout, “Pull up your effing big girl panties and let it go! You lost.” I don’t though. Just like I stay out of that other brouhaha where some people get to be hurt and refuse that what they’re saying hurts other people because those other people think differently and they don’t get the same regard. Makes me want to lay in a 20-year supply of freeze-dried meals and just hunker down.

      Anyway. It’s a new week. Weather’s supposed to be nice. I’m going to try really hard to get out of my head and get back on track. First, though, heading over to see your thoughts. 🙂

Got something to say?
