When your having a little morning delight and your hip pops and then you limp for the rest of the day - you know you're old.

Just sayin'.

Just stuff

1. My company from Texas has H1N1. Poor thing. So I have a "company's coming" clean house with no company coming. Major free time!

2. My mom's village is having a chili cook-off this weekend. She'd originally asked me to make a chili but I declined as Robbin was going to be here. Now that she's not I might do one.

3. I think I'm going to get Rob to go to the Haunted Castle in Muskogee this weekend if it's not raining. I haven't been on a haunted hay-ride in years.

4. I bought Daughtry tickets. Woooo

5. Need to finish organizing garage, but.... if it's pretty I'm going to capitalize on outside funtime as I think this winter is going to be icky.

Ya know when you see something you like but decide not to buy it right then and then it stays in your mind? And you think to yourself you'll go back and get it one of these days? Only when you go back to get it, it's no longer there and not able to be ordered? You get that feeling of "errgh". I'm feeling - errgh, right now.

There's this cool iron, hanging candle lantern that I saw at this little shop around the first of the summer. Well, I decided with my birthday money that's what I wanted. So I went yesterday - not there and they don't know who made it. Errgh.

Guess I'll settle for a cd changer in the Beetle. Booorrrring.

Boo - I need you to come to my house....

for a few days.

This is the weekend of the October birthdays - every year I throw a bbq, or bingo day or croquet tournament in honor of all the October birthdays in the family. My mothers, mine, my twin nieces and my BF's.

This year I'm doing a murder mystery dinner at my house. It's a 48 page print out that I should have done last week! So I need Boo to come and get me organized!

It's "The Assassination at the Annual Superhero Assembly - dress up time! :) I've assigned rolls and figured out I'm going simple with the dinner. Appetizer - bruschetta - people mingle, exchange info from clue sheets, then there's a Superhero dance-off. Dinner - salad and lasagne - exchange info from clue sheets - and guess what Superhero Item I am -play Super Movie clue - then someone dies. Dessert - Breezy's zinger cake and coffee - solve murder.

But there's alot of prep work. Ack! I wasn't taking Friday off, but I am now! I need a list people- where's Boo when you need her!

So yesterday....

I had to take my mother for her pre-op stuff. She's getting the other hip replaced at the end of this month.

She had to set thru a class - one that she didn't have to for the first one, go figure - that went over what to expect, what the surgery entails and other things. The nurse that was heading the class was a cute thing about in her late 20's or so.

So were in a room full of elderly - I'd say late 60's to 90 year olds - people. And she's going over the pre-op exercises they want everyone to start. She goes over each exercise and then, meaning to say they've had great success post-op with people that have done the exercises she instead says "they've had great sex post-op". Dead silence. Then the oldest man in the room says loudly " WHAT'D SHE SAY!" - the room cracks up. She turns 49 shades of read, I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. It was hilarious.

I don't know about everyone else in the room, but I now want that surgery!

Be careful what you wish for....

You know that old saying, right? It's another way of saying that I'm never satisfied isn't it?

Remember back when Rob was driving over the road and he'd come home every 6 - 8 weeks and I was a big whine bag because of his away time. And then he got off the truck and started a local job here. Monday thru Friday, some weekends. Meaning he was ALWAYS home.

My house seemed to implode after that happened. His guy stuff creeped into a well organized home, I'd walk into the bathroom to find he'd un-earthed a beach towel to use as a bath towel (why? who knows). He wouldn't put things back where they'd been for over a year in the kitchen. *SIGH

And then he got a puppy! I'd forgotten how much work a puppy was. Diesel and I escape to the bedroom some nights to escape Demon Puppy sometimes. We lay there and lament about the good ol' days when I had my house and he had a puppy-free run of the house. We whine.

Well, last Monday he got laid off. Ack! both of us at the same time? Geez.

So yesterday, Rob gets a new job. Which will involve traveling- they'll fly him where he needs to go and he'll be gone at the most 2 weeks and then home for a few days before leaving again.

I'm hoping this is a middle ground to my two whines. :) Diesel - he's just sol.

editing - because I think this should be called a PMS post - I don't usually get mad that when I ask him to pick up a head of cauliflower while he's out and he brings me back the itsyest bitsyest head of cauliflower ever. But I am, I'm mad. *sigh

I've been on a bitchy rant this week, haven't I?

Still Irritated

I got really peeved lastnight and slept on it and I'm still irritated. Rob says I'm making much ado about nothing - so here's the scenario and you tell me if you'd still be irritated.

Yesterday was my BF's birthday. We always meet her parents and her family for dinner. Invariably her Dad wants to pick up the whole check which I appreciate but would rather pick up our own. Sometimes he one ups me and other times I'm quicker than he.

So lastnight we go to Carrabas - we're the first ones there so I tell our waitress right off the bat that Rob and I are on one ticket. Therefore, I don't have a problem with ordering drinks, getting what I want instead of being cost conscious, ect.

So we eat, have a good time and enjoy our food and friends. Time for the bill comes and she asks how we want it split up, I catch her eye and motion between Rob and I and she nods her head. BF's Dad says he wants it all. So I get busy talking and then notice that "Dad" has a bill and is paying. I motion our waitress over and ask for ours, "oh, I went ahead and put it all on one since he said he wanted it all." WTF! What part of a seperate ticket did she not understand?

I chose not to make a scene, but I wanted to. But what a little twit. Grrr.

Theme song

I think Fleetwood Mac's Landslide is my theme song -

Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love
Can the child within my heart rise above
Can I sail thru the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the season's of my life

Well, I've been afraid of changing
'cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
and I'm getting older too

What would your theme song be?

As an added bonus here's some pictures of changes - ok, really I'm just playing with my camera :)

Gunner and Diesel - 2 months ago

Elephant ears - last summer, along with some tomatoes that did nothing

Elephant ears - today. All the rain has given me monster plants!
