1. What has changed in your life recently?
The biggest change was my husband's retirement. The loss of a weekly income and just adjusting to having him around 24/7.


2. How often do you change your sheets?
Twice a month.


3. What habit would you like to change?
My over eating.



4. What change of scenery do you dream about?
A new house or apartment. Our place needs a lot of work. I want to move and my husband wants to stay.


5. If you could change the behavior of anyone in your life,
who would that be and what would you change?
Myself, I need to worry less.
Que será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que será, será
What will be, will be


Weekend plans? Spending the day with both my grandsons today!

1. What has changed in your life recently?
Agent 86 is finally settling his lawsuit against his (can I say asshole?) partner and will be ending his career in the next few months. In the meantime, he's working from home. My home. My house. I can't get used to it. LOL!

2. How often do you change your sheets?
Every 5 days.

3. What habit would you like to change?
Obsessive worrying.

4. What change of scenery do you dream about?
The beach. Being on the beach all the time.

5. If you could change the behavior of anyone in your life,
who would that be and what would you change?
I'm pretty good at weeding out people who bring me down or make my life complicated. It's not worth it. I spent years trying to form a relationship with my sister. It never worked. It was more toxic than it was beneficial.

Tonight we are going to the annual Detroit Zoo Brew. It's when local breweries bring their craft beer to the zoo and you get to sample them. It's a fun night with different bands and food. My pastor got 20 tickets and so we're going with the crazy church group. Also, going to see "Eight Days a Week," Ron Howard's Beatles documentary.

Now I have Little River Band playing in my head... hehehe!

1. What has changed in your life recently?
My whole life has changed and continues to do so over the past couple of years. I'm still adjusting to not having my immediate family anymore. I have tons of cousins, but it's not the same as having my mom and grandparents. It's a very lonely feeling at times.

2. How often do you change your sheets?
Every two weeks.

3. What habit would you like to change?
Procrastination. I always seem to wait til the last minute to do things that I have had ample time to get done.

4. What change of scenery do you dream about?
The view of the ocean. I just got home from a week at the beach. To me, there is nothing as peaceful as looking at the ocean.

5. If you could change the behavior of anyone in your life,
who would that be and what would you change?
Hand's down my cousin, Denise. She is so good in many ways, but she is one of the most negative people on the planet. She finds something to gripe about in everyone and everything. She is giving and will do about anything for you, but she'll turn around and complain about it to others. She is my only family here in town and has been so good to me since Mom died, but it's getting to be very hard to spend much time with her anymore.

Weekend plans? As I mentioned, I just go back from vacation at the beach, so I have household chores to take care of, tons of laundry too. Tomorrow is Denise's birthday, so they are having a bbq. Sunday, I will be home watching Vin Scully's last broadcast from Dodger Stadium. So if you hear weeping coming from the West, that will be me. He has been the broadcaster for the Dodgers for 67 years. I can't imagine listening to games without him.

Detroit felt that way when longtime Detroit Tigers announcer Ernie Harwell retired. His voice brings me back to seeing my dad sitting in the family room watching the Tigers. When Harwell died they had him laid out in the infield and thousands of people came and paid their respects.

Same with Vin. His voice takes me way back to when my Grandpa and I would lay on the chaise lounges in the backyard and listen to the ballgames on his radio.

1. What has changed in your life recently?
Pills for this, pills for that; every day.

2. How often do you change your sheets?
Every couple of weeks. (When Annie says, "I want to do the sheets.")

3. What habit would you like to change?
Being continually frustrated and P.O.'d by people who have no respect for others (i.e., me). It's a habit.

4. What change of scenery do you dream about?
It varies. Living in the desert one day; in the redwoods on another; a forested hilltop on another. Sometimes a cityscape dream, sometimes a riverfront. I never dream about the plains. (Nothing personal, plains; it's just not in my dreams.)

5. If you could change the behavior of anyone in your life,
who would that be and what would you change?
Relatives who don't understand why "Black Lives Matter" is important -- and not a threat.
