They're coming to take me away...

ha ha hee hee ho ho to the funny farm.......
yeah.

Matters of interest to me this week:

1: Am no longer sick. finally

2: Mother-in-law has brain tumor

3: have writers block

4: short term memory seems to be failing.

5: Wii would like to play

Lets start at the top. 1: Was sick for 3 weeks with the the most obnoxious cold. (see previous post) cold seems to have followed Elvis and vacated the building. Thank god.

2: A few weeks ago my mother-in-law decided to take a header off the couch while the family was over. She went to the doctor and he told her it was side effects from the chemo from a year ago from after she had a tumor removed from her lung. ie: almost no lung left on one side.
after all the scans they could think of, "Oh, we're sorry, you have a 1.7cm tumor in your brain."
So now we wait for Gamma radiation treatments and pray. just lovely.

3: On a less serious note, seem to have writers block. Spend much time staring at screen with hands poised over keyboard. Doing, well, nothing. Am feeling less like project will ever get finished. Depressed now.

4: Short term memory has never been that great, but, how do I know it's bad? Had to got to grocery store 3 times this week because keep forgetting things. ie: dish soap, toilet paper, brain cells.

5: Finally bought a Wii, was our Christmas gift to ourselves, and was ridiculously expensive. But fun. Parts of body sore I didn't know I had. Thank you Nintendo for the wrist straps. It is probably a good thing can now tether self to wiimote. Although almost suffered catastrophic collision with nephews head last weekend when tried to high five each other and wiimote swung wildly free. Hmm. May require further thought.

Phone ringing, ohh, more family drama. fun.

ick

I have a seriously annoying cold. I'm stuffy, coughing, my throat hurts, and it doesn't even have the decency to give me a fever so I can sit on the couch and eat Popsicles all, when not sleeping of course.


Everything that needs to get done during the week seems to have come to a grinding halt while I inwardly whine and drink yet another glass of something so I can get out of my nice warm bed in the middle of the night to run across the icy floor to pee. Nope, not bitter at all.


On the upside I made my first sale of the new year last weekend. Unfortunately the postal workers in Grapevine Texas seem to be idiots and totally folded a priority mail envelope in HALF and proceeded to SHOVE it in a mailbox, thus destroying it's contents. Lovely. Sent out a (hopefully) unbendable replacement. Fingers crossed!! Here it is

Broke the beading supplies out of hibernation today and managed something cool, that oddly required no beads..hmm.
I think I am a masochist. We went geocaching tonight, in the cold and damp for an hour. I think I am trying to give myself pneumonia. We came home and got warm, had some tea, put my slippers on. Then Oh Crap!! A NEW ONE!! We were out AGAIN at 11pm. In the cold and damp. Did I mention it's only 50 degrees? Oh, and I have a cold? Yeah.
My bed looks really warm and comfortable right now, and Jon and Kate's Multiple Blessings is calling to me........
