Top o' the Mornin


Typical St. Patty's Day for this neck of the woods.  What would green beer be without being accompanied by a crap load of snow?  Of course, no one believed it when it was 80 here on Thursday.

Procrastination has just changed from my middle name to my first name.  My mother is always right...grrr.  I get worse as I get older.  I couldn't even make my mind up about which St. Patty's Day graphics to use. sad is that?  I went through old tags, new tags, tags on the web, tags in my group......and still ended up just going and grabbing one from Photobucket because dang, using a new one would mean uploading.  I haven't been in Photobucket all week.  Boy, they changed it.  Flipped me out when I opened it and asked me if I wanted to upgrade.  Moi...upgrade?  I'm not that brave yet.  Oy vey, now I have to change my sidebar again and still can't figure out the hyperlink in there for the life of me.

I've deleted more tags that I started to create this week.  Yuck, I'm in a rut with that also.  Procrastination is seeping into everything.

I think I'm getting old, tired, cranky, and lazy.  I actually worked 80 hrs...whoo hoo.  But darned near wore me out doing it.  My house looks like something blew up in it (along with my chubby body).  Of course, I will procrastinate even more so about tackling the mess.  I swear each time I shovel through the clutter, it won't happen again.  But each night when I get home from work, that big old, comfy couch of mine calls my name loud and clear.  I sure wish I had the money to call the Merry Maids.


Becky IM'd me last night.  It seems her beloved Skittsy Cat is having more kidney problems.  That is her first baby.  She had to spend $400 at the vet's and only has $200 to cover it.  She is going to her dad because I'm drained financially right now.  I did let her know that if she can to get $100 off of him (lot of luck on that one),  I can try to swing the other $100.

My Grizzly was sort of hobbling the other night.  I was super concerned.  Then I picked up his sleeping bag that he loves to clean under it and the stinker was spitting out and hiding his meds again.  I watch him to make sure he swallows it but he is good at keeping it in his mouth until I'm not looking and then hiding them.  He also had a Phenobarb under there.  He needs bloodwork very soon to see if the Rimadyl is affecting his liver functions.  I'm a bit worried because I know they would like to increase the dosage a bit if it's not hurting him physically.


Anyway, there is 8-10 inches of snow on the ground.  Blah, blah, blah.  This time change just screwed me up because it's not nearly spring here so my whole order is knocked out of whack, which doesn't take much.  If it stays light until 7 or so, it should be spring.

And then there are taxes.  They are still in a huge folder waiting to be delivered to my BF.  Yep, I'm procrastinating on this big time because I know I am going to owe.


Megan is still planning her trip to Asia.  She will be able to leave the country since it's school related.  Where she will get spending money, I have no clue.  Which leads me to the fact that I dismantled my bedroom last year and took over hers.  Well, she is coming home this summer so I have to figure something out pretty soon or I'll have no bed.  Yada, more teensy kink.


I shouldn't complain...keep Sugar, Jeannette, Kim, Krissy and John, Indigo and many others in your thoughts and prayers.

Hopefully, the snow will stop this morning, as they are predicting.  I'm hoping to get out tonight for some St. Patrick's Day celebrations at the Days Inn.  Last week, the amount of alcohol comsumption totally blew my mind in light of Megan's fiasco.  I just cannot believe how much people drink when they are out.  I never seemed to notice.

I'm on my way soon to Verizon.  My cell phone battery is crapping out after it's fully charged with a 5 min. phone call.  It's been getting bad for a month now but getting worse each day.  The phone has a year warranty on it so it is still covered.  I have to take the phone and charger and have the techs check it out.  I've never had a battery go that quickly.  In fact, I've never had a battery go at all.  I keep my phones for at least 2-3 years.  Our local techs are usually pretty generous so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't have a battle on my hands.

Hope you all have a wonderful, safe weekend!

Have a good night out tonight Chris! People do drink way too much, I always notice as I don't drink alcohol at all, just tea, coffee and water. Our pets are good at fooling us that they're taking their meds, my two do it all the time with flea and worm tablets! Little sods! I hope Becky can get the cash to have her cat seen to, vets cost a fortune! I'm glad Megan can still do the trip to Asia and hope she can get the money for spending although she'll find it very cheap over there. I hope the spring returns for you soon, we seem to have lost it now! Jeannette xx

Stupid drunk people is all my husband deals with at this job. Te district he is in is down town and full of clubs and bars and he says it drives him nuts how irresponsbile people are when it comes to drinking and how they consume more and more.  Anyhow I can relate to the cell phone battery!  My phone is a piece of junk!!!

Sneaky Griz hiding his meds.  I've had patients do that!!  Rascals!!  
It always amazes me how much people drink, too.  And drive home!  They say here in LA that 1 out of 10 drivers on the road at any time is under the influence of something. I'd say it's higher by the way they drive.
Hope you are able to go out and enjoy your St.Pat's Day!

queeniemart said...

Lovely 17th of Masrch reminder.  I used to love that holiday whe I was home because the adult women's relief society always put on a very funny program.  Every year they outdid themselves.  One year I had to go steal a woman's dress (I asked her husband for it) and pretend to be her.  We all did.  Steal someone's dresss that is, the side that lost or won I can't remember which.  The men drank, but the religious ones and the women did not  I love the expanding and retracting 17th of March. Procrastinate!!  I think you need the rest. tag.

I have a solution with the meds with Grizzly.  Take a slice of american cheese, we use the stuff in the plastic sheets.  Call Grizzly over while you unwrap the cheese.  Rip the piece in half and put the pill in the middle and mush it in your hand so the pill is all the way in the cheese.  Give it to Grizzly while making clear that the second half is ALSO for him.  I tear the second piece and hold it out, and when the cheese and pill is gone then I give Libby each  next piece.  Good luck!!!

be well,

lol, to the procrastination and your chubby body .... ??
I am chubby, sweetheart  - not you!
Oh, that Grizzly. He thinks he can fool Mama, huh? Tell that bad boy to swallow those pills!
I bet Megan is getting excited about her trip.  :)
I was wondering if you would be at the Inn tonight. Have fun!
My battery in my phone died not long ago - first time it ever happened. I had to pay $40 for a new one! I hope you got off easier!
Love ya

You worked 80 hours and you want to know why your tired? Good grief woman cut yourself some slack. I usually say I'm energenic , but I do believe working that hard would do anyone in.  You are not old, dumpy or any of the other things you claim.....your in need of spring as am I and everyone else. I can't believe we have to expect snow all the way up till this coming Wedn. Grizzly reminds me of Pickles, Pickles takes her Milkbones and hides them all over the house and tries to convince me she ate them so she gets more. Rest hon, it's well deserved. You have had a lot of stress lately. (Hugs) Indigo

80 hours? 80????  no wonder you are tired.  that isn't procrastinating! that's working! if i worked that much, i would HAVE to call Merry Maids.  even if it meant going without food for myself. lol.  and that probably wouldn't hurt me anyway...
get some rest.  it isn't as those the house is going anywhere....

chat2missie said...

I can't believe this latest round of snow!!  YUK!!  I'm getting worse about things as I get older too.  It's not just you!  Hope you have a good Sunday.

It is hard to get motivated sometimes Chris when we work all day and come home late.... last night I got off at 7... came home and took a bath... and went to bed... before 9!!!!!! LOL!!!! I was tired!!!!

siennastarr said...

My phone is doing the same damn thing!  I have to charge it twice a day, and that's when I'm not even using it!  I've barely had mine for a year, so hopefully they will do something about it.  I need to take it down to cingular.

I wish I could send you some of my hot weather, but it seems to have cooled down a bit here, the last couple of days.  Kenny's memorial was Saturday, and it was 90 degrees out.  We couldn't really run the A/C, because people kept coming in and out of the house.  It was freakin' hot!  But, Sunday and today.. it's cooled down considerably.  It's only 65 today.  I love it!

I hope you had a good time on St Paddy's day, Chris! :)

Love you

Procastrination is my middle name too. The only exceptions is where my passion gets stung with I have to do something but everything else, is on that "Oneday list."  I would be going through my room just days before the deadline. I am a sick person when it comes to that,lol. ~Raven
