A Potpourri of Things

I just feel like writing. Dion is putting the girls to bed (well, trying, it's been a battle for some time now), I have a little Pink Floyd playing through the computer while I charge my mp3 and the mood is right. All I need is a beer and life would be good. Another time I guess.

Butters is adapting rather well for being hissed at every time he turns a corner. Cotton (AKA: Girl Kitty by Claire and Nadia) is really just angry at everyone. She hisses at butters, Tater, Sam, and sometimes me when she thinks I am an animal creeping up on her. Ah. She'll get used to things.

I was told that the food I ate the night before my blood draw could effect the results. Next week I am going for a re-test, but doing it here instead of driving the hour to Mayo. I was also cleared for surgery next month. I was also told that I have to come back in 6 months to see where my BP is at. I have talked to a friend and we are going to do this eating better/diet thing together. I have never had to diet before. In fact, in college the most I ever weighed was right around 140. Ahhhh...those were the days.

I have started my new anti-depressant and I don't know if the effects of it can happen this fast, but I was a power horse today. I dusted, vacuumed, cleaned the upstairs and main floor bath, did load upon load of laundry and took care of the girls. I rocked, if I do say so myself.

My mom is sick again. She seems to have been battling a lot this winter, never mind all the fun stuff with her surgery. My dad had cataracts removed this week. I was at the clinic three times this past week. I spent so much time there that I thought I should just sleep there. Or at least do some filing or something. Between my parents and I, FV employees should thank us for paying their wages. Ok, a little bit of an exaggeration, but man, so much time was spent there!

I guess that's it. I want to write more, but I am plum out of things to write about. Sorry...any ideas?

Do you have enough energy leftover from all that cleaning to stop at my house to do some cleaning?(Wink). Just kidding!! No matter how much I would like maid service, I don't think I relish the idea of a stranger going though my house, touching my things.

Take it easy.

I am trying the cleaning-powerhouse thing today. I normally couldn't be bothered, but the satellite guy is coming tomorrow to hook up Dish Network. It seems I care more for what strangers think about my house than family!

As for what to write about, how goes the children's book?

qsexoo - is it just me, or are the word verifications getting a little... naughty? ;)
