Well......I think I told you a couple weeks ago my girlfriend from Oklahoma was coming....of course I had the dates wrong...lol. She is coming tomorrow!!! Today I had a million things to do.....I worked midnight last night and my daughter Ashley relieved me this morning at 10 am. We work 12 hour shifts (10 to 10 ) So I was anxious to get home and get started. Ash comes in and shows me her arm. It is all swollen and red and has to marks in the middle like a big bite. I am thinking right away...SPIDER. So I come home and have to arrange for someone to come in and take Ashleys place while I take her to the Emergency Room. Then I have to go back and get her and take her to ER ( and you never know how long that will take). Luckily it only took 2 hours , they gave her an antibiotic and told her to soak it. ( It is nasty looking) Then I took her back to the job, came home, cleaned out the refrigerator and went back to town to get groceries. I dont know about you guys but to me, the worst part about getting groceries is carrying them in the house. Its like endless! And then putting them away!
I didnt get anything else done today....tomorrow I know my Mom is going to try to get me up early to get everything done. I am not a morning person! I work better under pressure so I think I will sleep till noon and then get up and vacuum, dust, change beds, clean the bathroom, and scrub the kitchen floor. My Mom will be pacing the floor and sighing deeply ( a sign she is not happy with me) till I get out of bed. She doesnt understand that once I get going I am a ball of fire. And it will all be done before 5 pm when Barbara is arriving. I will even have dinner in the oven, which is going to be poppy seed chicken.
Thank you to all who commented about my new puppy Gabby. She is doing wonderful!!! She has not gone in the house once!!! Since I had to work the first 2 nights I got her and she slept with my Mom I figured she would not sleep with me, but she is all snuggled up on my bed as I sit here typing. I think she is waiting for me to come to bed, she doesnt know yet but she has a long wait....lol. I am just so pleased with her. My beloved Toby was a yorkie, and I loved him so much , but yorkies are very tempermental. If you leave them longer than they think you should be gone they tend to pee, just because they are mad. And of course by then you love them so much you just clean up the pee. When I would come in from work Toby would cry and bark till I picked him up, if I had to run to the bathroom to tinkle I had to do it with the dog on my lap. He was definitely a lap dog...lol. My girlfriend Valerie watched him while I went to Myrtle Beach one time and she said she had to do the same thing or he would cry..lol. But what can I say..I loved him.
So I am going to play a few games of scrabble and try to be in bed by 3am...whatever time I get to bed....I will still have things done by 5 tomorrow.....trust me on this one.
Lets Talk.. Catch at 12:51 AM
