I just had to snag this tag from Shelly's graphics journal Roxy's Links and Graphics. I feel like my eyes are spinning around in my head. I was tempted to snag Jackie's head banging graphic. This has been a week which seems more like it's been a month. The move at work was a tremendous undertaking but goodness the new space is lovely and, well, new. It smells new and clean. The ventilation has been redone so hopefully the sick building won't be sick anymore and neither will I.
And the Vivi's...lol....yep, the Vivi's are cutting Jackie and me a break for a week or so. But honestly, all of you make it worthwhile just by your wonderful comments in that journal and seeing all those beautiful tags on your sidebars.
Grizzly has rebounded pretty much near to normal. He is hungry...I mean hungry. The rice and Alpo or chicken is just not cutting it for my pooch. He can't have his kibble back until the end of the week. He is now carrying his food bowl into the family room and dropping it at my feet. Dang that dog is still smart. He has also started licking the spot where the anesthesia was placed and biting at his sore spots where the claws are missing. He wasn't messing with it when he was feeling under the weather. We've scolded him. That seems to be working. Forget the bucket on his head. He removed a bucket on the way home from the vet's when he was neutered years ago.
My DISH was installed yesterday. I must say it's only been 24 hours but I'm loving it. ROFL at my ghetto house. The best spot for satellite pickup is on top of the front porch roof. I mean I'm at 115% and more but the front of my house....I'm missing a shutter that blew off in a wind storm in the spring; missing one railing that Megan "fell" through carrying the trash out when Joey and I were inFla last summer and now....a DISH centered in the front of my porch roof. To top that off, Megan was home this weekend. Of course, the air conditioner was still in her window so while she was removing it, she ripped the mini blinds totally out of the wall. Her window is huge; ceiling to floor almost, and wide. I'm sure these were customed ordered blinds. So, now there is one window in the front of the house with nothing in it. Hmmm....can we say Chris' house is getting more ghetto everyday?
Anyway, the wind was howling today and the rain was coming down but the DISH never went out. According to the guy who installed it, they are only as good as the person doing the installation. hehe..of course, he would say that but it does make sense.
I have a receiver in Megan's room which is now mine. Her room is pretty large; the tv is 19" and looks way too small for me. So, I'm scouting out a bigger tv. No rush, though, because I'm not laying in bed in that room with nothing on the window with the light on. My BF thinks the blind can be fixed. We'll see...keeping my fingers crossed.
Grocery shopping and reading journals was my day today in between watching the Steelers flub up yet another game. With that, I bid you all adieu. (And in true Pittburghese...how bout dem Stillers) Right now, Joey and I are rooting on the Detroit Tigers. Jim Leyland, the coach, was the Pirates' coach when Joey was a kid. We spent many many nights at the old Three Rivers Stadium cheering on the Pirates under Leyland. Oh, the good old days when Pittsburgh was the City of Champions.
(Thanks Missie for the tag! Maybe I should have started cheering with it sooner in the season.)
