I take back all the complaining I did this past summer when it was 110 degrees and I was having a heat stroke……….
Todays weather is down right nasty. It has poured down rain then turned to snow flurries. The wind is blowing 25 mph so the 38 degree temp feels like 25 degrees. Brrrrrrr.
Yesterday morning our electric was out for 4 hours. I guess because of the thunderstorms. Hubby and I put all of our Christmas decorations back in storage by candlelight and flashlight. Now I just need one full day of cleaning and my house will be back to normal. That wont happen until we are back on normal schedule.
I am still out of sorts. Scooter is acting a tiny bit off. Not sick or anything like that, he just isint himself. I thought we had cured his pecker problem but it started swelling up a few days ago. He is drinking and urinating fine. I am worried. Do I call the Vet Tuesday or not? gah! I hate this.
Then, last night, before hubby and I went to bed, we looked at the County Jail’s website roster to see if anyone we knew has been thrown in jail over the Holiday weekend (we do this every weekend, how sad are we?)
As people are booked into jail, it is immediately posted on the jail’s website, complete with a mug shot.
As we were reading down the list of names, you can imagine our suprise when we see hubby’s older brother is in jail for public intoxication. Arrested yesterday afternoon. Brother R.s buddy was arrested for a DUI. I wont go into detail about this brother…….but I am sure you get the idea.
After seeing his brother’s mug shot hubby says, ” he’ll never learn.” I agreed with him and pointed out at least he was not driving this time. So, we go to bed and figure brother R. will get himself out of jail. Oh no, no such luck. Guess who he calls to bail him out? Hubby.
I did not say one word about the whole situation even tho I was fit to be tied. Might as well light a match to that $145 because it is never to be seen again. This is not the first time hubby has bailed out R. or saved his ass from certain disaster.
I was at Wal-Mart yesterday in the checkout lane, patiently waiting my 30 minutes until it was my turn to checkout, I overheard a conversation between 3 teenage girls. They were standing around a magazine with Paris Hitlon on the cover. The tall brown-haired girl with braces and a lovely complexion said to her friends, “Paris is so cool. I would love to be her.”
The other 2 girls, I am betting they were sisters because they favored each, both chimed in unison an agreement to the brunettes statement. The trio was pointing out their favorite things about the trashy heiress, commenting on her ‘cool’ clothes. I thought to myself, “omg! Paris Hilton
looks like a woman who has STD’s and doesnt mind sharing them-ack!” That moment, I was so very thankful I have sons………..
It is hard to imagine another year has flown by. 2007 is right on our heels. I hope this is a good year for you, me, and the USA.
I never did understand this song and how it relates to the New Year. Do you?
Auld Lang Syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne.
How are y’all ringing in the New Year? Give me the details, I want to know.
Nothing planned here but it is still early……..
Stay safe and make sure you have a designated driver if your going to be under the influence of anything intoxicating.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
