Almost the weekend

By it being Thursday, that means that Friday is almost here, yay! Workweek is almost at an end. Nothing else special to report so thought I'd post a picture of my favorite flower. The cala lily, isn't it pretty. No it is not from my yard, I don't seem to have that green of a thumb, never can get them to grow.

This is Tuesday

I'm glad its Tuesday, cause at least one day of the work week is gone, and we are on a roll to the weekend. I took Cojak to the vet this morning, yep the leg was infected just as I expected. He's on meds and has to go back at the end of the week. Is it just me, or does everyone else feel you can't go to the vet without paying at least 100 bucks? Oh well, at least they helped him.
Yesterday was a very uneventful day, nothing major happened. I did get a new baby doll in the mail yesterday but I haven't opened her yet, maybe tomorrow. I'm seriously thinking of selling some, they have taken over my living room. We'll see.
Work, is still just that. Still don't know what the new company is going to do, just wait, and wait, and wait some more.
I started cutting my pills(diet) in half, I slept much better last night. Hope that continues, I hate not getting all my beauty sleep.
Well, its' now time to be off to the j-o-b.
More tomorrow.

So its now Sunday

As you will read in my baby girls bloggie, today is Chloe's 3rd birthday. Happy Birthday Chloe, I love you soooo very much. You are truly a special girl.
Now onto other weekend activity. Jonathan went to stay with his grandparents for a few nights, which I think is wonderful. He hardly ever goes anywhere so its good for him to get away. He called a bit ago to check in and informed me he and his Papaw are going to be working in the woodpile some today, trying to get their firewood stacked. My dad is soooo patient, I've often said he's got the patience of Job.
I started my diet pills on Friday, we'll see how much weight I'm able to shed in this 3 months that I am on them. Doctor said he would only presribe them this last time hopefully I'll do better this go around. So far so good, with the exception that they don't allow me to sleep very well.
The dogs got their futon put up and it sits in front of the patio door so that they can look out at the world and guard their territory. I think its awesome, and at least 5 can lay on it at a time, 6 if they really all want up there. The hubby doesn't like it, I suppose cause its a form of a bed in our family room. I however think it looks much nicer than blankets and dog beds thrown all over the floor. I suppose we'll see how long it lasts.
Saturday evening was going along really well. I took the furminator outside and brushed Cojak down really well with it, and boy did we get hair. Anyway, at some point I turned around and the hubby was walking into the garage to come in the house. For whatever reason, Cojak and Scooter got into a fight. It all starts so fast that unless you are in between them already there is no stopping it before it gets going. I grabbed Cojak and LB got Scooter, it was a struggle, and some blood shed but we got them apart. They had been getting along so well but something went wrong. I hate when they fight. LB is about done with it I'm afraid. I'm just waiting for him to say Cojak needs to go. I can't give up my baby boy. Hard headed thing he is! It does wear LB out now days to break them up, not only that, he just seems to wear down easily anyday. I worry about him. So then he makes a statement that really hurt me, he said he wished we'd never got any of the dogs! What? How can that be, I love my dogs, and I plan to always have at least 1. Maybe 6 IS a bit much, but they are here now and I wouldnt want it any other way.
Boy, kids and pets I suppose can stress a marriage as anything else can. Hope it gets better.

Finally Friday!

I love Thursdays cause it means Friday is the next day! Now its Friday! WooHoo! Not alot to talk about at the moment the hubby is fixing the futon to go in front of the patio door so that the pei can lay there and look out the window. We called bulk trash yesterday and they came and picked up the old love seat that they had practically demolished. The futon hopefully will be better.
I started my diet today! We'll see how well I do! Must start walking the dogs at the local park or something. I really need to get more exercise. These days its so much easier to put it on than to get it back off. Wish me luck!
About time to leave for the J-O-B! They sold our company, no idea what that means, but so far it really hasn't affected anything. I'm sure it will eventually. I'm hoping to still have a job, but we'll see.
Tomorrow I plan to put stuff on Ebay to sell, and to do some of the housework that needs to be done. Then it'll be time to give at least 3 pei a bath. Stinky piggies, they need a bath.

Rainy Day

Rainy days are always good for sleeping in don't you think? I love to sleep in. I get up with the pei early of the morning, then once the hubby gets up I lay back down, for a few hours of precious sleep! Ahhhhh! I need all the beauty sleep I can get!
The tattoo is still quite sore this morning. Washed it up and lotioned it down, will lotion it again later while I'm at work. I'd really like to do something with a Knights head and some cala lilies on my shoulder blade area in the back. I've always called LB my Knight in shining armor, and I love the cala lily flower. Now just to come up with a design I like, and the will power to set through the pain again. Wonder how bad it'll hurt there? Must find out one day.
Other news is I'm taking Jonathan to drop off a job application at the local movie theatre, he loves movies and would like very much to work there as an usher. Keeping my fingers crossed that he hears something. He really needs a job, maybe that will encourage him to try and get his drivers license as well.
Must get ready for work so once I take him and drop him back off at the house,I can be on my merry way to the work place for another day of excitement. Sarcasm heavily inserted here!

Finished Tattoo

Today I went and got my tattoo finished up with the color being added. It looks awesome! It looks so much better in the flesh, but this picture will have to do. This time around it was a bit, no I should say, alot more painful than when I originally got it done. The tattoo guy was over an hour late getting there, but he made up for it by doing such an awesome job. He said it hurt more due to the fact he was using a much smaller needle and the coloring process looked just like that. Like he was coloring in a coloring book, that just happened to my flesh. I made it through though and I'm so proud of myself. It was soo worth the bit of pain I endured to be able to have Chloe with me forever and ever!

Sad Saturday carried over to Sunday

Without going into too much detail that I'm sure everyone doesn't want to read, just want to say I had a bad, sad weekend.
Jonathan and LB don't always seem to 'click' and they never will most likely. They get along ok, but it will never be the father/son relationship I always dreamed they would have.
Quite frankly, I think they are so much alike that they clash in some ways. Jonathan is a loner, always has been and probably always will be. He's quite, but he has his talkative moments, usually when I'd rather things be quiet. LOL!
LB has a hard time relating to him. He also doesn't feel that Jonathan does enough to help out, but yet when they try to do something together you can guess what happens. Hubby doesn't feel he's doing it right, or doesn't have the patience, blah blah blah, then he just does it, cause he wants it done a certain way.
Ok, enough of that, it just breaks my heart when they don't get along. Or the fact that I can call and ask one what the other is doing and they have no clue. For pete's sake, you live in the same house, I guess no one lives a fairy tale though huh? Oh well, there will be better days! I hope!

Alot of nothing

Today, not much to say. I slept in this morning, which is always nice. I like that my hubby is a morning kind of guy and I'm a night person, cause I stay up late, and he gets up with the doggies of the morning, and lets me sleep in, wonderful!
Took Dakota to the vet, you can read all about that on Chloe's Blog. Just glad it will heal soon hopefully. She's also moulting, and her coat just looks horrid, looks like she got into it with an army of moths, and they won!
Looking so forward to being off the next two days, I plan on a DQ visit in there somewhere!

Thursday, July 16, 2009

This is Thursday, a super day!

Today being Thursday means the end of the week is almost here, yay! Just one more work day after today, then 2 whole days off. Can you tell that I'm really looking forward to it? Not sure why, other than just being at home for a few days.

Today Jonathan is going with his Aunt to see the new Harry Potter movie! He's so excited! We always go see them at the theater. He will probably see it at least twice, cause I have to go see it yet, and he'll probably go with me, he's my movie buddy, as LB usually falls asleep during any movie. LOL!

Well, it's off to work for me. Catch up with you guys again tomorrow.

Not sure about the difference WD, about the lilies, maybe because we live in different climates? I wish the flowers stayed around longer than they do. I have tried numerous times to grow my favorite flower, the cala lily, but I have no luck whatsoever with it, truly saddens me.

Lily's are leaving

The pretty flowers in my yard are starting to go away, so I thought I better take another picture of one before its too late.
Rain is headed our way, suppose to storm later, I hate storms! We need the rain, just hate the thunder and lightning that goes along with it.
The hubby is out there stacking wood, would have to say he's feeling better. So glad.

I wonder, I wonder.....hmmmm....

I'm feeling a bit anxious about my employment right now. The company I work for has been sold to a joint venture between 2 decent companies. The only problem, and where the worrying comes in at, is the fact that I have no idea if they plan to keep the employees that are already working here or letting us go.
Should find out something in the near future, at least I hope, I can't stand this not knowing what's to happen bit.
Now, as anyone knows is not the prime time to be out there trying to find a job, got my fingers crossed that all works out for the best.

Home and Recouping!

LB is feeling a bit better, but I don't think much just yet. The medicine I'm sure will take a few days to start to kill all the bad stuff. The pain pills are helping so all in all he says he feels a bit better. Now, just to keep him still for a few days!
In other news here, the picture I took of him here is with my new Blackberry Tour! Yeppers, I went and got it just yesterday, I love it so far. It's a bit different from my BB Curve and definitely an upgrade. Kindof like looking at regular tv and thinking hey this is a good picture, then going somewhere and seeing an HD tv, yeah kind of like that! It's awesome!

Hubby went to the hospital

Just a quick update on the hubby. We went to the ER this morning, he seemed to be hurting more than he has. The doctor ran a CAT scan and took blood. He said everything showed fine as far as he could see so we are to basically assume it is an infection that continues to rear its ugly head time and time again. The good news was that there was no surgery needed. We received two scripts and instructions to follow up with the family doctor.
Hope he heals soon.

The Hubby isn't feeling well

LB seems to be having a time as of late with his legs and his foot. Every since the last surgery his foot and part of his left leg have basically been numb, and he has what the doctor calls Foot Drop. He has been having a really hard time lately with them (being both legs right now) aching and tingling.
He also has been complaining of his side hurting, he had an infection once before in the same area, and I'm afraid it has returned, so it looks like we'll make a trip to the doctor or the ER sometime tomorrow.
He's been trying to ignore the pain but I think it's getting worse, so I'm going to have him seen somewhere tomorrow.
The problem with him is, he won't set still and let something rest and heal properly. The moment he feels, eh,its not so bad, he pops up and does a buttload of work around the house, on his feet all the time and we go through the swelling, tingling, and such all over again.
I don't think it'll ever be "right" again, but I wish it would get better than it is now. It's hard to keep a good man down!

Pretty Flower

I took this pretty picture out in my flower bed this past weekend. Thought I'd share it with you, it soooo pretty, don't you think?

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Wednesday, already!?!

Gosh, my week just seems like it is flying by, with the exception of when I have been trying to fall asleep in the stuffy hot bedroom, with the portable a/c which is doing less than a half-as@ job at cooling me off! The air man came to fix us yesterday, the hubby called and said it was starting to cool off, I said Thank Dog, I hate being hot. About 30 minutes later, he calls back, guess what, it's blowing hot air again. ARGH! NO! How can this be! Air man back again today! As of about an hour ago, it was still working, lets just hope it lasts through the night. The bad news is, he said eventually we will have to replace the unit!?! Shocker there, along with everything else we need to repair and replace! Just hoping perhaps it'll stay afloat through this summer.
In other news, I wasn't on yesterday cause I had to get my hair did! Yeppers, cut and snip and color time! Whew! It feels so much better, don't know how I ever stood it with that long hair I used to have! So, anyway, I got my hair done, rushed home to watch a bit of the Michael Jackson memorial and then it was off to work and I pretty much stayed busy all night! Now I feel like I'm caught up.

Wood, wood, and even more wood!

We started getting some wood for the winter in May. This is how we started out.

Next, it started to look like this. Looks like we will stay warm for part of the winter anyway.

Low and behold, here comes more wood. Started having to put it out in the back.

Now,they had to break down and borrow a gas powered splitter. The manual one just wasn't gonna get it with these big pieces.

Well, yesterday, he finally finished up with the last of the splitting. Then this morning, he tells me he's going to go get more! Anyone who gets cold this winter, you know where to come get toasty!

Happy Freedom Day!


Hope all have a safe and happy holiday! Eat, drink and do it all over again!

Fly well birdies.

Long Weekend

After I get off work tonight, I won't have to be back there until Monday at 2:30, can we say yipee? So glad for this long weekend, have many things I'd like to get accomplished, but we'll have to see how it goes. First, is giving the dogs a bath, wait didn't I just say I was off for the weekend, sigh, some work is never done I suppose.
On that note, I think I'll take a nap, got up early with the dogs, and of course they came back in and went to sleep, guess I will too.

About Me

My photo
Jefferson Township, Ohio, United States
This is a blog about my life. Nothing fancy and nothing of consistency very much either, as I tend on occassion to forget to write on here. Anyway, I'm a married woman of 38. My son Jonathan just graduated from high school and now in the process of figuring out what to do next. We have 6 Chinese Shar Pei, and that pretty much sums me up.
