I know. I haven't updated since Thursday. First, all of my parts are in semi normal working order.
So....where was I....Friday. ugh...Friday. I felt SO icky. I wanted to crawl under a rock. It was a day of deserved self pity. I say deserved, because I try pretty hard to stay upbeat. I don't want to let myself feel too sad cuz then...eesh....I'd be a sobbing mess, which would scare the children and animals... BUT.....you know...a gal can only do so much, so Friday was my day.
::whine whine cry cry sob sniff honk sob sniff::
Seriously. So, of course, Jesse is there patting me and hugging me (after he got home from work) and he said 'Is there anything I can do .....or do you just wanna be held and patted and babied?' I sniffed and said "I need a birthday weekend..." He said 'Umm....your birthday already passed, honey...' I said 'And?' He looked at me and grinned and said 'Sooo......am I supposed to bake you a cake, too?' and so started my un-birthday weekend. I should start by saying I love my husband. This man has the patience of a saint and then some. I don't know how he can stand me - bless his heart. This weekend - I didn't cook. (I made the King Ranch Chicken on Friday, but I had already prepped it.....otherwise he would have taken me out. Although, nobody likes it but me, so pfft. ) He took me out to eat. He took me shopping. He gave me my drugs before I even thought I might need them. ('Trust me' he said....after we had spent 3 hours in WalMart walking around with my lame leg....) He rubbed my neck. He....err...umm.....::Amy blushes - mental note *skip that*:: uhh....He let me have plenty of computer time. I could go on and on but somebody is bound to say 'Enough already, we get it. He's a real prince.' so I'll stop.
So what did I shop for, you ask. Um. What didn't I shop for might be the better question. WalMart, of course......I went over to the baskets and the flowers and the house accessories....and spent more than I should've. (and he didn't say A THING!).... and then Sunday, he said 'Hey...didn't you want to go to that Pottery something or other?' He meant Old Time Pottery - which is pottery, baskets, candles, etc in a warehouse....ohhhh myyyyy goodness........I could LIVE in that store. No, seriously. Everything is really reasonable, so I shopped. I went through EVERY aisle. I inspected everything. (It's a drive to get there, so we don't get to go frequently..) I was a crazed shopping machine. I felt knee pain and I blocked it out because dammit...I WAS SHOPPING. Yeah, y'all thought Vicodin made me buzzed and out of my mind......this STORE was giving me the same effect. LOL Jesse said 'I don't think I've seen you this happy in days...' ROFL I said 'Awwwww....get out of my way...I see candles.' ROFL
Anyway...so obviously, that was fun.....so after that 3 hour trip through heaven......we decide to go eat. Why not cruise the main street....and see what sounds good, right? Yyyyyyyyeah.......um. You know, it seems that our car has this um...gas gauge...and um...it doesn't work right, you know....only WE didn't know that...and umm......suddenly the car got really quiet and Jesse gave it some gas and there was no noise and then Jesse says 'Um....did I just get this car and it's crapping out on me??!?!' and I said 'Um....aren't you out of gas?' He looks at me and tries to start it, and of course it won't start.....ROFL, so there we are on the shoulder of the road with no gas. Niiiiiiiice. Jesse said 'OK, well...lock the doors...I'll be back...and he walked back to the gas station - which was a decent walk, I'll say.......poor baby....he was all trying to do something forme and then he has to WALK to get a gallon of gas?! I felt so bad....but he said it was no big deal and he was laughing, saying he was relieved it was only gas and not anything serious.....so, we got some icky McDonalds.....went home.....and I got to put up all of the stuff I bought......so I'm still riding that high... LOL
So. Have I yapped enough to make up for skipping a few days? I'm sure I forgot to mention some other funny things that happened, but those'll have to wait, cuz my Knight In Shining Armor is standing seductively by my side with a bottle of warmed lotion. Um. Of course, he's also watching COPS and laughing, but you know......I'll take it.
