.....and I'll have the makings of a great country song.
I'm working on the drinking problem, my dog is sick, and umm....well, I still have a man, so I can't use that line, but still......whine whine, bitch bitch, rinse, repeat.
(I know.....I live in Texas and I don't own a truck? What are the odds, right?)
Anyway, I was off in my own little sad cocoon skulking about and my lovely friend said "HEY! Are you dead? Can I have your stuff?" so ::sticks out tongue::. I don't go back to the rheumatologist for two weeks and my wrist hurts like the dickens, so here I sit with an ice pack and a little vicodin....which isn't really helping a whole lot, but anything is better than nothing at this point, I suppose. The thing that I know y'all will find amusing is that I cannot pick up an empty dinner plate without my wrist protesting. I know. Me. The one who loves her food....cannot pick up a dinner plate. What the eff. pfft. I have a brace, but that doesn't really help me much.
It kills me to have to ask for help with daily household stuff, too. I know, I know.....I can hear you all now....'the kids should be doing _____, anyway!' but......I don't ask them - or want them to have to worry about stuff like that. I want them to be responsible, which they are, but I want them to stay kids as long as they can. There's plenty of time for work-ish crap when they get older. Soooooooo........my chores take a considerable bit longer to accomplish, but on the upside, at least I can still do them. I just have to be a little more careful.
So. I'm still schlepping along.
OH! and...y'all, guess what. I've always had sensitivities to earrings and any metal jewelry.....always always.... so I bought these SIMPLY WHISPERS earrings. I had used them a lonnnngggg time ago (when I was 10 or so) but back then, they didn't really have many choices style-wise, so I just went without. Then, recently, I saw an ad for them and checked out their site. They had tons of new hip styles of nickel free hypoallergenic stuff! When I received my order, I put them on, and waited. Usually, with regular earrings, my ears start to swell up. Then they itch. Then ooze starts coming out of them. That's only in the first 5 minutes. The aftermath of that 5 minutes last me two days. It's pretty gross. Anyway, I had some hope for these new earrings and they did not disappoint. After 20some years, I can finally wear earrings again. Yay, me. I'm stoked.
