It is Monday, official cleaning day at the homestead. So far, Ive unloaded the dishwasher, sorted laundry, and thats it. Maybe, after another cup of coffee I’ll get my lazy ass in gear. But, I have a very good reason for being so lazy. Wee one was up in the middle of the night again for about 2 hours, his ears, his skin allergy. He is still sleeping so I am trying to be quiet as a church mouse so he can get his rest. He had a fever but I gave him a dose of tylenol and it seems to have went away. I called his primary MD and we have a 1 pm appointment. Maybe we can get somewhere with the specialist’s recommendation. I am thankful for our Indian Health benefits but waiting for approval is taking forever! Hubby has good insurance from his company, but it is far too expensive for the whole family to be covered. Since hubby cannot get Indian Health Benefits, he has to have coverage. He is some kind of weird Cherokee Tribe, a tiny bit but I am pretty sure he has to travel for any benefits, Arkansas, maybe? I do not think his Tribe is recognized by our Gov’t yet. I should know these things but I do not, probly because I dont care right this minute……
A coyote has been hanging around, it better keep away from our wild baby rabbit. The healthy looking coyote passed thru here yesterday, good thing he was moving fast because I have a .22 bullet for him should he make himself a good target! I saw it last nite(the rabbit). Hubby fed the horses this morning for me when he left for work, it was thunderstorming and he offered. Sometimes he can be such a sweetie. He said he saw the one tiny rabbit out in the pasture inside the horse run-in shelter. I’ll take some carrots and wilted lettuce out for the little feller after the rain stops. We have declared no rabbits on the menu here (for now!) I’ll give them refuge and hunt elsewhere.
Maybe today we’ll have a breeze…..the thunderstorms have made the air thick and heavy, steamy. I feel like I should be putting on a Southern Belle corset, carrying a hand-fan, and speaking with a deep southern drawl………..all while frying up some chicken and drinking sweet tea with lemon. Actually, I have always been fascinated with the deep South, the mysteries and secrets that wind down the Mississippi River into the gator and water moccasin infested swamps with hundred year old legends of Voodoo , rich plantations, and hauntings. Some of the best books Ive read have been set in the deep South.
Hubby is working to the SW of our state today. He thought maybe he could be home by 6-7 pm depending on how work goes. This evening, if toddler terror feels better we are going over to best friend L.s to visit. If he isint up to it, she’ll swing by here for glass of wine before going home from work. Yesterday she was wanting me to go to Super Wal-Mart with her-that was why I noticed the tinge of desperation in her voice when she left me a voicemail!
I should have known it was going to rain today. Just before dark last nite, I fly sprayed the horses real good so it would last a couple of days. Now it wont, grrrrr! I also washed my car, so I bet that hexed it.
I was reading about the UltraMetabolism Diet Plan. Since I am not getting any younger, I thought maybe I should speed up my metabolism. Ummm, no thanks! You should read the scary stuff they want you to eat AND become a vegetarian, thats like sacrilegious to me. Also, give up caffiene, alcohol, coca-cola….I would perish for sure. And really, just how tasteful can tofu, bean sprouts, and green tea be? ICK!
For my praying friends, say one for my friend brian. It appears a Hurricane warning is in effect for Florida. It looks like he is in the path. Y’all have a short and sweet Monday (my least favorite day of the week!)
