Tonight, my uncle Jim, from Minnesota, who is in NJ on business, met us at a favorite restaurant for dinner. It was really nice to see him! Those of us going to IN for the wedding, will see him and his whole family there on Labor Day weekend. I am really looking forward to that!
Did you ever just want to turn ahead a few pages in life? I do.
Not a lot going on here; I was quite 'excited' over a new metal mesh hamster wheel, since it lets the pee drip through, because I was tired of cleaning the dried pee off the 'old' solid plastic one, but really, who wants to hear all about that? Sorry, so sorry.
As if I wasn't feeling insecure enough about my weight, my brain tumor, my lupus/RA, and going away with 2 kids without hubby, my cousin brought me two of her very best 'fat' dresses that no longer fit her anymore since she lost weight. :::sigh::: I know that she didn't mean it that way, and I appreciate the thought, but, yeah, you know what I mean.
I did color my hair today which was very over due. To save money, I have been doing it myself, which I hate, but I 'suck it up for the good of team', as they say. (I don't know who 'they' are but I hate 'them')
To try to make it more pleasant for myself, I only do it when Hubby is home (and he was home early today), and I announce it to all, and then LOCK myself in the bathroom for the entire time. After putting the gunk in my hair, I read a magazine and drink coffee/water, by myself, all the while.
I can still pretend, I am a diva at a salon can't I?
Yeah, it isn't quite as much fun, but I go girl!
(The hardest part is squeezing the bottle of gunk out with sore hands, and then the blow drying and styling. You should see the swelling on my hands and wrists tonight, ugh.)
Let's see, what else. My mom is in horrible mood, which I think is 80% work related, 10% my dad, and probably 10% me. I don't know what I did, but I am sure it is more what I didn't do. I do try my best, Mom. Really.
Libby, the infamous yellow lab, has the beginnings of another ear infection. The extremely damp last 5 days, with on and off drizzles, has taken their toll, the poor dog. :( She hates the ear drops I have to put in her ears, but loves the slice of American Cheese she gets with it, so she does take them like a trooper.
I just realized something neat. I will be 42 on November 22nd.
Libby will be 6 on November 26th, which in human years is 6x7=42.
So, yes, Libby and I will both be 42 this November! Woohoo!
I wonder if she will 'spritz' when she sneezes, too, or if that is just a joy of human middle aged women, who have popped off three kids? ::: sigh :::
Yeah. Tomorrow, book sorting, general 'getting ready for school' stuff, and organizing and downsizing, around the house. Wish me luck, the kids don't exactly 'enjoy' this stuff! lol
And, please, stay tuned for more heart stopping excitement.
