There is just very little that is
more enjoyable than looking at a
really, really pretty man.
It's just such a marvelous
So today is THE DAY!
Yesterday, I got the carpets
shampooed and the house somewhat
decent, but today is the big clean
to have the house all set for the
weekend. Fortunately, I'm
feeling somewhat physically back
to normal today, so I'm ready to
give it a shot. I've been
working on laundry today so far
and I'm ready to kick into high
gear and work like mad for the
next three hours or so. It
breaks my heart to say that, but
it needs to be done and I'm ready
to do it. (Hooooo Wah!)
I'm still very, very tired, but
I'm determined! Plus, if I
get the house nice and clean now,
I can sleep guilt free all
There are NO plans for the
weekend. Eric was supposed
to work a full day of overtime
tomorrow, but now that's in
question. I would like to
get groceries over the weekend and
as much as I hate driving down
that hill, I really need some time
alone and that is absolutely the
only way I'll be able to get it.
(bleh) If the car had AC, if
it wasn't 1200 degrees in town, if
it wasn't so damned far I'd enjoy
it ever so much more.
No so this spaghetti with butter
I'm having (or not, now) for
lunch. Ack. Next!
I hate the days of grocery
desperation just before payday.
Tonight is the next-to-the-last
Hamburger Night and I want to make
some cookies for the school bake
sale there. It will be great
not to have to cook. Next
week, they are pit cooking a pig a
few days before and having a huge
party. Then it will be
My birthday is September 5th and
I've been trying to think of
things I'd like to do or get.
Money still isn't plentiful, but
I'm thinking I might want to get
my bicycle finally. I'll
share it with Delena since she
really, really needs one.
Nathan's 5th birthday is Sept 7th,
so I can't really go all out.
Never conceive 40 weeks before
your birthday or your wedding
I was honored to watch really,
really good TV today. I've
always enjoyed the show "Chicago
Hope," which just started airing
again on Discovery Heath.
Today's episode was the one where
Geiger's insane wife is going to
have brain surgery that could make
her sane again and the writing was
just absolutely amazing. I
was riveted, especially in
Geiger's pacing scene where he has
taken off his pants because the
sound of his pants was bothering
him and interrupting his pacing,
so he's in a full suit and boxer
shorts. At one point, he
says he can still hear the pants,
"I'm hearing phantom pant sounds!
Is anyone else hearing the pants?"
It was brilliantly written and
brilliantly acted. I really
appreciate special talent and
effort like that.
Speaking of effort, I should
likely show some toward cleaning.
Have a magnificent weekend!
