A Week from Today

I will be having my finger surgery. I have tried to  psych myself up for the event. But I am still very nervous.  Mainly because I know that there will be alot of pain afterwards for at least a week.  The docs told me I should be out of work 2-3 weeks, I thought I was going to be out a few days.  So that means I wont be able to blog much since I will be one handed.  The one thing that I would enjoy doing while I am at home, will be difficult. So prepare yourselves for one handed blogging with lots of typos.

One of the girls I work with (why do I call woman who are in their 30’s and older girls?) brought me a bunch of movies to watch. That was nice. Some of them look good, some meh. At least I will have some distractions.  I probably won’t be able to drive for about a week, since I will be on pain meds, so my plan is to stock up the house with easy food, premade, frozen, canned etc. Lots of movies some books and magazines and hang out on drugs.  If you have any ideas for one handed recipes, or stuff that Jake could make easily send them my way.

The ironic thing is my 30 year high school class reunion is 2 days after my surgery. Saturday night.  I never stayed in close contact with my high school friends, my closest friend found me on-line about 10 years ago. Hi Pam!  I have traded Christmas cards with one other, but about 4 months ago she called me out of the blue.  Turns out she is trying to get a few of us together to have dinner pre reunion then basically “crash” the party.  None of us were what I consider any where near the popular people, so I really had no desire to go be a wall flower at a reunion 30 years later, after being one all through high school. But I was ok with the dinner thing, and if I possibly can make it (with lots of pain meds)  will have Candice take me over to the restaurant for dinner.  Then jump in a cab home afterwards. they can crash the reunion without me. I don’t think I will be able to stick out the whole evening.

A Dizzy Chicken

Well I am not quite sure that it will be a dizzy chicken, but my friend over at 2 barking dogs  is having a contest!  Don’t you just love contests, they feed your blog, and in this case your face too!

So go visit and vote in the contest and you might win a cool prize, or some good cookbooks!  I personally voted for the dizzy chicken, so I would encourage you to do the same. It just kinda made me think of that movie Chicken Run.  But now I can’t imagine eating it!

Happy Birthday

Beatrix Potter.  I will probably get in a shit load of trouble for doing this, but GOOGLE has the cutest search image today in her honor.  I loved all those stories with the animals!  Do you think the GOOGLE police will arrest me?

I suppose I should write a catch up post, but not much has been going on. Nothing that interesting anyway.  I have been toying with the idea of moving Daisy over to wordpress.  I even created a site for her, the only problem is that I can’t find a theme that has the palettee I like.  She needs to have pink! Check it out and let me know if you have any suggestions.  I need to find a better picture for the banner too.

Sigh of Relief

Well the crazy, busy, hectic, emotional weekend in now over. Thank God. By the end of the day SaturdayI was just beat.  When I got home I called the relay people and decided not to go, I had already arranged for someone walk my time at 5pm since I knew I couldn’t get there by then, and raised about $200, everyone understood and so I put my feet up and watched TV.  Of course it was sad movie night and I ended up with Terms of Endearment and continued my crying jag until quite late. 

The funeral was very nice I suppose, I delivered the sandwiches, I did my reading as arranged,  I socialized with people I had not seen for years, and I was polite. I burial was very emotional, since he was a vetran there was a color guard and a bugller playing taps. Boy,  that will tear you  up for sure.

But now its over and I can look forward to next weekend when I will do nothing.  Well,  at least not anything stressful.
