See the conundrum? I KNOW that I have to wear shoes inside (shudder) to make my heel feel better but I cannot stifle that instinct to actually do it.
Things that Thrill(er) me today.
Andy did, beat it this weekend. He went to New Hampshire with a friend to get the summer place ready for some actual summer as we will all be converging on their place this week for the 4th of July weekend. (Those of you who have your mind in the gutter may now take this time to realign their thoughts to the fact that MY “beat it” means that he left town.)
I remember when we were first married, weekends away from each other were just about torturous and long. I agonized about BEING AWAY!! Gasp. And now? 25 short years later? I look forward to these few and far between weekends like the magic that they are. Absense really does make the heart grow fonder. I am enjoying every minute of this weekend, watching movies that I want to watch, eating what I want to eat, throwing a bunch of clutter crap away while I have this chance (heh, I’m evil like that. Leave your stuff? It’s gone now. heh. )
Yeah, so I have a more grown up view of this “beat it” stuff. Love. It.
Dinner will be take out, most likely Thai. Around 7. And I will not have to share my Thai Rolls with anyone.
Don’t ask to have any.
Financially, things have changed for us all. Life is a bit more unsure. A bit more uncertain with dwindling retirement accounts. Hopefully, we have enough to pay the bills and live comfortably. Hopefully, we have jobs to go to on a daily basis.
If you do have a job that pays the bills. If you do have enough food on your table, won’t you consider giving a bit to Claudia and her MS ride? It’s tomorrow. Maybe you’ve given? Sure. That is great. But? Perhaps you can spare a couple more dollars? We don’t all have to give a thousand dollars. But 5 would be great. Or even $1.
The good thing is? WE don’t have to ride 75 miles on a bike. All we have to do is give a bit of money and Claudia and her wonderful husband WILL do the ride. Thank god, honestly. I don’t want to hoof my butt unsafely around town on a bike I tell ya. But? I am grateful that Claudia and hub want to.
And? It seems like there are so many prizes that there are enough to go around. (I’m exaggerating of course) One for every donation, is how it seems. I’ve never seen a prize list like hers! People are generous, that’s for sure.
I peeked at the weather forecast for this weekend and it says this for Saturday.. “Mostly Sunny”.
Does anyone know what that means? “SUNNY?” It sounds familiar but I can’t place it.
My sleep pattern is all thrown off due to a recurring night time cough and a week long night time cold medicine usage that knocked me flat every night. Now? Can’t fall asleep and stay asleep to save my soul.
Hello. My name is Sandy and I am a nyquil-aholic.
Which, btw? Makes a grumpy me. Not pretty at all. I spent the morning being unreasonable crabby and then having 2 people “blame” me for their colds. Apparently *I* have the only germs around nowadays. Perhaps I was just being sensitive but if I am going to be blamed, perhaps we should compare symptoms, just to be sure it’s MY strain of germs. In fact. I would like it to be hereby known as the Sandysknitting flu. This may gain some momentum, quite like the swine flu.
Should I have stayed home for an entire week or maybe even 2 or 3 weeks by the time I shake my cough? I did stay home on day one of the sickness. Then it was the weekend. So by the time I hit work last Monday I was on day4 of the SNflu. (Sandysknitting flu, remember?)
But wait. Do you do this too? Tend to blame your sickness on those around you? Is it something that is a normal activity? Do you? Blame your cold on your friends/co workers? And plenty vocal about it too?
I spent a wonderful weekend quietly cooking up a storm. Sourdough bread, plenty of fresh spring veggies from the local farm stand made into a Spring Green Risotto (YUM), sourdough waffles and the piece de resistance? Strawberry Rhubarb pie which was particularly scrumptious.
I figure I would do like the old wives tale said: Feed a cold/SNflu!
