I'm slow but I learn...eventually

Note to self: DO NOT READ THE MOM HER 'REAL' HOROSCOPE !!!! DO NOT TELL HER HOW MANY STARS ARE FORCASTED FOR HER DAY!!

Yep...i think this may be part of the problem. Our local paper has a horoscope with stars.

5 stars = excellent
4 stars = good
3 stars = average
2 stars = so-so
(1 star doesn't exist evidently)

She greets me each morning with " How many stars do I have today?" And each morning, silly me, I read it to her. Well, from now on I'm gonna lie my ass off if it's anything below a 4!!
The days that she drove me to 'medicate'....she had 3's.
She made a comment today about how she must be having a '5' because she felt 'pretty good'. so I looked and low and behold there were only 2 stars today!! Seriously...a big huge light flashed above my head and I said " yep.....you've got a 5 alright". She said the past few days really felt like 2's or 3's...but not today.

She puts stock in that stuff! Who knew?? Evidently not me!

She's going to have a 4 tomorrow. I don't want to make her supicious.:)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I get to take Sunday and Monday off !!!! Yay for me!!
Lovee and I are going to start the tile jpb in the laundry room sunday morning. then finish with the grouting on Monday. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it.
Mom said I could have the time off since "you do so much for us that I need to help you where I can".
Generous to a fault I'd say. :)
I'll take pics. I might even get around to posting them -lol

haha .. well on days that you feel extra strong and in a good mood you can even give her a three. Just to mix it up a bit.

You are cracking me up. Too dang funny. I think I'll have 5 star days from here on out.

I love that: so happy you have time off so you can do a big job around the house!

LMAO! Good for you! My grandmother used to be quite a bit of stock in horoscopes as well. ;)

Dianne said...

I like Jay's idea. Actually call her Monday and tgell her it's a 2! that way you'll have several 5s in the bank.

Lord I'm getting confused.

Have fun with your renovating.

OMG! What great ideas from Jay and Dianne - definitely call and give her a 2 on your off days (then turn off your phone). :) ha!
