I am feeling a bit guilty for not having put up a post for 2 weeks.  It’s not that i didn’t have anything to say.  Typing with one hand does get a bit tedious though.  I went back to work last week.  It was a slow week with lots of people out on the last of the summer vacations.  I wasn’t glad to be back at work although I was getting a bit  stir crazy by the end of the second week home.  I was driving but there wasn’t alot to do. I did drag Jake to a movie, Tropic Thunder.  Pretty funny, not really my type of movie but funny. 

Now I am settled into the long labor day weekend.  Since I don’t work Fridays I have a 4 day weekend.  I really don’t have any plans, yesterday I got my hair done and tried a new place for dinner. Today I was thinking about going to the Farmers market to get some tomatoes and sweet corn, but its almost 9:30 am and I haven’t got dressed yet.  It will be to hot if I wait much longer.  The weather has been unseasonable muggy and very hot.  I could never live in the Midwest, I don’t think I could handle that humidity.

I really wanted to do something different this weekend, but I don’t really want to be outside and I know it will be crowded everywhere.  I don’t want to hit up a mall since I am trying to stay on a budget, I have a huge list (that I haven’t made yet) of things that need to get done around the house that will cost money.  So stay away from the potential of shopping!

I will be trying very hard to put up a post at least every couple days after this little hiatus.  I so enjoy reading everyones blogs, and I hope to get a few more vistors myself.  I really feel like alot of you are my friends!!

Getting Bored

So I went to the doctors yesterday, Candice drove. I was sure he would remove the big cast and give me a little splint. But no, he did remove the cast,  but put back another big cast. This one is removable so I can shower more easily. I see him in 4 weeks. *sigh* so 4 more weeks of big cast.  I plan on goung back to work in a week.  I thiought about maybe a littel sooner, but the antibiotics make me feel yucky and I have the time, so I think I will just chill next week. At least now I can drive. 

Well I hope I can. Will test that out today.  If not I am stuck home.  The 3 people I can count on are all on vacation on business trips as of today for a week or longer.

So my days have been sleeping in, getting up and reading stuff on line.  D has been coming over the last few days and taking me out for lunch, to get me out of the house, he left for Oregon yesterday.  Afternoons are either scrabble or naps, then dinner and olympics. I have been staying up way to late watching them, thus the sleeping in.  So today I am flying solo.  I think I am going to take the cast off take a shower and see if Jake wants to go get some lunch.  Roscoe naps with me.
