COlOR ME…
...kind of blah.  I'm a little disappointed with the new colors announced today. I'm a sage girl with a lot of things but I'm not feeling the Fiestaware sage for some reason. I like the slate a little better. Not loving that one either…

THIS WAS A STUPID IDEA
I needed to get my car inspected and I don't have that many days off this month so I decided to keep my morning appointment.  Chrissy was going to meet me but she couldn't get off her street and The Dad told me he had a meeting and couldn't get me until the afternoon.  Yeah, you heard me, right.  WTF?  Anyway, I decided to just mess around on my own.  Luckily I brought some stuff with me to do while I waited.

I walked over to Kings with my bag of papers to go through… I'm not a big fan but I do like the veg soup…

…and you can't go wrong with mashed potatoes…

…and my fave - cinnamon ice cream.

I had to waste some time! It wasn't enough time though.  Cara texted me the bus schedule to get to the waterworks - like that was going to happen!    I debated on walking over to Target but didn't know if I could on the main street with the snow and the traffic.

I seriously considered getting a room at the hotel next to Kings. My arm was hurting and I was like, fuck it, I'm just staying the day and I really wanted to take a nap!  I decided to mess around in McDonald's for awhile instead… so I got a tea and fries. I just ate but I felt like I had to order something.

I didn't eat the fries - I haven't been able to since I saw them referred to as cancer sticks in some article I read. I set up shop at a table there and did a few things. I pretty much exhausted the amount of time I thought was appropriate to loiter in McDonald's when I finally got a call from the car place. I headed over there and waited for awhile and went on my merry way.

JIMI THING
I have to say I gasped when Steve came back last season - apparently the cast was unaware of it too. Now, Jimmy/Steve/Jack is back! Whoo-hoo.

Well, wait. I don't know how I feel about this…

There really is nothing worse than a liar, right?

Especially when the liar is dressed in truth's clothing.

WOUNDED WARRIOR
I remember, after my boob surgery, wanting to lay on the couch (that I had at Dixon House) with a blanket and the remote.  Instead, The Dad got the hell out of dodge and I got in my bed with the pup and Chrissy fell asleep in the living room here.  I remember after all the miscarriages laying on that Dixon House couch watching movies - Dave picked up take out and in no time at all - all was well in the world.  Or at least mine. Until the next thing.

I wanted to lounge on those couches today…

I went for my surgery for the skin cancer.  They said I could go myself and I wanted to, though I questioned if I would be able to drive or back up and get out of the parking space.  I ended up pulling through in the parking lot so I could get out with no problem. So the only thing I had to worry about was backing into the driveway.

I would be fine on my own.

I always am.

Chrissy insisted she meet me at the plastic surgeon's office. They were running late.  Really late. They finally called me back and I waited some more. The whole procedure didn't take too long, though it seemed like it took three hours for him to stitch me up.  I kept asking how many stitches I was getting and he just kept saying "lots."

We went to eat after and, honestly, I  just wanted to get back to bed.  When I walked in the house, though, I felt a little sick. It just hit me that I wasn't going to go up and lay on that Dixon House couch and David wasn't going to pick up take out. Instead, I had about 45 minutes before The Dad got back.  I hurried up and jumped into bed kind of shaking. I didn't plan anything for dinner (neither did he) but he did make me an egg sandwich eventually.  You know, his specialty and cure all for everything.

I wanted to be by myself for awhile even though "by myself" was the last thing I wanted. Does that make sense? I  took today off since the surgery was at a weird time  I should have taken tomorrow off. My arm is starting to hurt now and I'm worried about pushing wheelchairs or a resident grabbing me or getting MRSA.

And I miss those couches and, you know…

OH, BOY - IT'S  MARCH
I guess it's time to put the Christmas stuff away.
