Saturday we had T & C over for dinner. I made lasagna (frozen) and C brought salad and cheesy garlic bread. We sat for several hours just talking and remembering and laughing. It was a good night.
I started the Neurotin last night and I’m not saying it’s better, just different. I was up and wandering the house at 4 this morning. Fell back to sleep around 6 and slept till noon. M and M came by today and we made homemade pizza’s then played cards. It was great having company for the weekend.
So today I went out and did what any other self-respecting grandma would do on a cloudy day. No, I did not do the big K. I kept my tattoo appointment. What an experience. First I couldn’t find the place. If you’ve ever driven through West Bloomfield during the day you know that the roads are nuts and the drivers even nuttier. My trusty GPS sends me to an abandoned building in the middle of the biggest traffic snarl I’ve ever seen. I’m kinda freaking out at this point. I call the place and he’s all like, “yeah, GPS doesn’t work real well out here. Too many cars.” So he guides me in (I was two buildings away) and we get started.
Very first ink (for this tat)
Getting ready to nap. Or at least meditate.
The finished piece
I’m so happy with it. I can’t wait till it settles down and I can see the true colors. I barely bled on this one at all. And I did catch a nap while he did the fill in. I was comfortable.
It’s getting late and I’m getting tired. I hope you all found at least three things to smile at today and at least two reasons to laugh out loud. I know I did.
I have chemo tomorrow at 1:30. Spare a thought, white light, or a prayer for me.
Fourteen years ago I married my best friend. Wow, fourteen years. Actually 20 if you think about it. 20 years of happiness, sadness, sorrow, joy, hotdogs and filet. We’ve certainly got the sickness and health part down pat.
I can’t believe how big I am in these photo’s. That’s a size 24 dress and I was probably tipping the scales at 190.
I’m a lot more comfortable the way I am now. I think that dress weighs more than I do now.
This is us now, well at least us as we were in January.
I was just flipping back through photo’s. How we’ve changed through the years. And the people we have become, who would have thought that a tough guy and a broken girl would meet and match so completely.
And thanks for trying to get into the Whitney tonight. Who the hell gets married on a Wed. anyway? Glad you could get us in tomorrow.
Have a great day everyone. May all your dreams come true.
Dreamt of clowns and balloons and scary places last night. Woke up this morning with a headache and a sore shoulder. I guess I slept on my arm wrong. I hate that. I also hate when my ear folds over in my sleep and I wake up with a crease in my ear. Mucho painful.
I think I’ve finally tamed the furnace monster in the house. Thanks to Joe for putting in a programmable thermostat I’m able to better maintain a constant heat in the house. I haven’t had night sweats in two nights and I haven’t had to use a comforter in the living room. Good things. And socks are now an option, not mandatory.
So, did my first real “bead” show in quite a few years yesterday. Got to meet a lot of the Guild ladies from GlassAct. It’s strange putting faces to names on the computer. I’ve known some of these ladies for years, just never met them. I hope I did well. I shared a table with the guild so I’m waiting for a tally from the treasurer. I know some things sold, just not sure how many. I was really surprised by how many people I met said that they read this. If you’re reading this, HI! It was great to meet you finally. Feel free to leave comments, ask questions or just pick on me.
Actually cooked dinner tonight. Sweet Potato, carrot and turnip soup, Lemon pepper cod (oven fried), and green beans. I need to make more soups now that fall is here. I love squash soup. All the yummy fall root veggies. I wish that the tomatoes had had a better season this year. I usually buy a bushel and can them for the winter. I can’t justify spending what the growers are asking for them this year. And they are small and mealy.
I can’t believe that it’s almost Halloween already. Oh, but I am looking forward to Sunday. We are meeting C & L and the grands, with M and making an afternoon of a cider mill. Yeah, photo-op. I really miss the kids. I so wish they lived closer. I know, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride. I can’t help it though. I look at the pictures on FB and just want to run down there and hug them up.
Ok, enough maudlin for tonight. I need to put in some time in the “crap” room upstairs. I have so much stuff to get rid of and no idea how or where to offer it. Have a safe and comfortable evening everyone.
