We got some at Cheesburger in Paradise, and I swear, we got Mrs. Pauls fish sticks and shoestring fries - major ugh! Lesson learned.

Just got off the phone with my mom - she leaves on a cruise tomorrow for 12 days of not doing chores. I envy her, except I really didn't much like our Caribbean cruise. I like the cruising just fine, but the islands all seemed to be the same. I'm not really a beach person and I don't like to shop, so that limits much of what you can do in the islands. But no matter - we're not cruising.

Time to give FCD a haircut and iron some shirts for him. Thus endeth my weekend!

I gassed up the Grand Cherokee, bought some food. Making Maple Jack poke chops with sweet N,O.T.s with green beans for dinner.

He's warning you about the Invisible Mole People.

My friend stopped by and installed the Roku. Unfortunately, when I switched to air for the news, I couldn't get it back . He brought his latest pup with him. Copper is a year old beagle and an absolute sweetie. While her buddy was working on the TV stuff, I took her out for a walk. She got to sniff butts meet a couple of the neighbor dogs and chase a couple of squirrels before coming in for a treat.

Except for when hand, toy, & mouth all try & occupy the same space; never intentional, but still, OWWWW!


Anyone have a person-sized handbasket I can have?
I was at the cemetery & noticed I didn't have interwebz on my phone; then I realized, Duh, it's a dead zone.


Dinner was Rigged Tony with ground fowl & sto-bought sauce. Don't judge as I Absolutly made sure that there really was some vodka in the vodka sauce. But not too much since the vodka is kept in the freezer (don't need to dilute it with ice that way) & didn't want to make dinner too cold & I couldn't find the plain bottle, so used the raspberri.

Are you saying you used Raspberry vodka in spaghetti sauce? I might have just skipped it. How did it turn out?

Hubby is gone for the rest of the week. Kids are on Spring Break. Assuming I can sleep, I can sleep late!

We stopped at Hastee Freeze for soft serve ice cream and I got a grilled ham and cheese. It was num!

What is it about grilled ham-n-cheese that makes them so good?

Didn't get to referee my soccer game as the fields were closed (we had very little rain this morning and the afternoon was clear and in the 70's, but the Park & Rec division is paranoid about fields getting torn up, so...)

So watched baskeetball and ate cheesey bread for my evening meal. Now awaiting the beginning of the new week. Waiting to see what ruble has come up with...

I am puny again. This time it's a backache in the lower back and nether regions much like PMS. I swear I want it all gone. Thinking I will be sick tomorrow and set up some apps for gyno, eyes, dentist, and in general overall physical. Oops, forgot the tit squishing and colonoscopy. Shall see how I feel in the AM. I can make phone calls from irk. If I still feel like I do now I will stay home and feel guilty all day for not being at irk.

F'ing guilt. I have hundreds of hours of sick leave and annual leave but too dedicated to use it.

Sorry about your former BIL SARI.

Moses could not have said, "I have parted the Red Sea!" more proudly.

Nor could he have complained about his health as well.

Oye!

Thank you Sunny and Butters.

I feel a bit stunned.
Lately everybody I know that has died have died in their sleep or just sat down and died. It's always been kind of unexpected.
I always thought I'd like to die in my sleep but now I think I'd like a bit more warning.

Cat was miffed at me this morning after I yelled at him. If I went in the kitchen, he went in the living room. If I walked in the living room, he went back into the kitchen.
But he got over it.

I'm sorry you feel so badly Butters. Take some time off, you deserve it.

Cats don't have the attention span to sulk for long.
