Friday Fillins and Sookie

I have been listening to the Sookie Stackhouse novels while working and knitting lately, (I must be the only person in the world who hasn’t read them already.) They are not great literary works, but I am finding them entertaining, I do wonder how anyone ever decide to make a series of them??? I haven’t seen them as I am too cheap to pay for HBO, but I am now curious to see if they are as entertaining as the books are. I wonder if the library has them, hmm.

Friday Fillins
1. Laughter is the best medicine.

2. Please use the are the three words that started off the last email I sent.

3. What I'm most looking forward to today is getting through the day alive and intact.

4. Babies put a smile on my face.

5. Where in the world am I going to move when I retire?

6. Another bill, just what I needed!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a book on tape, and knitting, tomorrow my plans include working and bathing the dogs and Sunday, I want to sleep in!

It has been so long since I blogged I forgot how comment moderation worked; I finally figured it out yesterday and found several very nice comments. Isn’t it great how nice blogger land is?

I know some people do the Bullet Point Wednesdays, and others do the Random Mondays, but I can’t decide what to do. I am having a hard time getting back into the writing thing (maybe if I closed down Farmville it wouldn’t be so bad??). I guess today we are going with Random Monday, just to get in the habit of writing again.

I inherited a white poodle (among other animals) from my older daughter. White poodles have disgusting eyes that run, especially when they have allergies. Tiny thinks his eyes are fine the way they are, but he scared a little kid the other day with his dirty eye. I have a special package of diaper wipes that I use for his eyes and he hates it when he sees me with the package. But last night (being smarter than he is), I closed all the bedroom doors (with us in it) before I picked up the packages of wipes. It was funny but sad to watch him run, fortunately, my legs are longer and I grabbed him up when I got a wipe out to do his eyes. He growled, nipped, and tried to twist out of my arms and once he realized he could not get down, he grabbed the end of the wipe and tried to kill it. I am faster than he is tho, so his eyes were as clean as they were going to get before he killed the wipe.

I got to go to the yarn store Friday, found the most wonderful yarn, that is soft and squwooshy, and perfect for another chemo cap. Of course, I bought it, and if my friend does not like it, I can give it to someone else.

I was reading Sheepy’s column the other night about her current research project about flumpability and cats. I love cats and flumpability is a good thing in cats, but I realized that I feed and house (and clean litter boxes) for five freaking cats and do not have a single one with flumpability. Something is wrong with this picture; someone forgot to teach these cats to show the correct amount of humility to their person! Onyx, the mean biotch growls at me when I try to flump her (she has negative flumpability); Kitty Star, another inherited anima, would probably let me flump her if there weren’t two dogs around all the time. Jack and Fatso don’t want to be touched unless it is a requirement to gain food; and Jill just doesn’t want me to look at her, let alone flump her.

I sat down to knit yesterday, no big deal, but then the dogs both decided they should be sitting on my lap; however I decided they should not, so I pulled the footstool close and forced them to stay on it so they could warm my feet. It worked for about 20 minutes, but that is such an improvement over most days.

I am Back!

I am knitting and reading again, I think that means the sadness and ???? is gone. It is great to feel good for a change and to be able to pick up a book and read it from cover to cover. And it is way great to be able to pick up a project and work on it. I decided that if I start blogging again, I may decide that I do not need to play Farmville (which is a huge mind suck) anymore. What do you think??

My oldest daughter did get married in February, and it was small but very nice. She is happy and enjoying married life from all appearances. We all agree that if and when #2 gets married it will definitely be a destination wedding; that was hard to pull together in such a short time frame (30 days). Daughter #2 graduated from her one year MBA program and has already found a job, which she starts in September.

I know a lady going through chemo and I made her a chemo cap, the first thing I have completed since September. I hope she doesn't need the cap, but she has it if she does. It wasn’t perfect but it felt great to do it and have it complete, completeness is a good thing in my life.

Though I seriously doubt I have any readers left, at least I can still come here and blab. Yea to the world!
