This week has been one of recuperation for me. Mardi Gras wore me the hell out! I really must be getting old because, walking all of those parades had every bone in my body aching. Being in the grandstand seating area on Mardi Gras day was interesting but, I see why most people prefer the neutral grounds. It was a bit too confining for me so, I think next year, I’m going back to the neutral grounds and eat until I explode! We must have been in the geriatric section because it seemed like everyone by us was over 70. They had the nerve to be hustling their asses off for that stuff too…knocking me out of the way and stuff..it was too funny!
What happened to the Zulu Coconuts? When I was coming up, they were huge and heavy…they look like painted tennis ball today..WTH? Someone on the float tossed them and hit two people on the head….LAWSUIT! Zulu knows better than to toss those things, that’s why their insurance is so high now. Mardi Gras was really fun for me this year though.
My hubby has to have surgery in about two months so, I’ve been really busy trying to get everything in order. Although his condition is not life-threatening, it is life-altering. We are going to have to change our game plan in a couple of areas..he may even have to consider a career change. I have been pushing the nursing field but, it’s hard for some “manly-man” type of men(especially a Navy Seal Veteran who fought in Vietnam) to consider nursing . In this economy however, it’s like money in the bank…oops, with the way the banks are today, I better not say that huh?
My son has introduced me to the “crack of the coffee world” Starbucks. He wanted to get a mocha latte so, Saturday, we went to Starbucks for the first time. I had a vanilla latte and one sip was all it took and I AM JUST HOOKED! I went back three days in a row for that “crack coffee” thanks to my son….the pusher man.
I can’t watch American Idol this year, I hate the new format…I’ll just wait until they get to the final twelve and try to watch it then. The Celebrity Apprentice is kicks…I miss George and Carol, I hate Donald’s kids being in the board room. I hear George is coming back so, maybe it’ll be better in the board room from now on. Why are people always crying on The Biggest Loser at the elimination table? It’s a game, someone has to leave every frigging week. What’s with all of the “it breaks my heart to send this person home because he’s so wonderful but,*sniff,sniff*, I had to vote for you Bubba.”….I’d be like” see ya Bubba….NEXT!”
With all of this pollen everywhere and this hot and humid(80 degrees) weather, my sinuses are on their yearly tirade…guess it’s time for my yearly steroid shot..I hate that visit to the doctor *sigh*.
That’s all I got for now, on my way to Lowe’s to pick out more paint. I don’t like the color so, I have to pick another one..I have no idea what to pick…it’s for a media room with a lot of whimsical movie theater type stuff going on the walls…any ideas?
Until next time! BTW, ya’ll gonna have to forgive any typos, etc…I can barely see this darned screen!
