I've read about deaths and birthdays...watched vlogs and read stories. In tt's world....that's it. Life. Just life.
I've got a few random things peeking out of my grape rooms. I'll try and list them before I fall asleep....although, since I took a 5 hour nap today...that may not happen for a while. Yep...I told Lovee that I was just gonna rest for a couple hours....HA....I woke up at 8 p.m.!! It's been so fucking hot here lately. It just sucks the life forces out of me at times. our regular temp has been around 101 to 104. Well...today it was 103 but the heat index was 110!!!!!! As soon as I opened the door, the breath was sucked right out of me. Seriously!! Ugh! In fact, it's almost...notice I say 'almost' too hot to swim. Yea...i know...what's with that?
Actually it's the only place that I don't sweat. and let me tell ya, I sweat like a whore in church! No joke sisters!
anywhoodle..........here's a few squishers:
1. do frogs get restless leg syndrome?
I'm not sure where that question came from. ...cept'-I was sitting in our backyard looking out at the bug zapper light that Lovee put out there and saw that it's surrounded by frogs! Guess it looks like a smorgasbord to them. :) ha anyway, I was watching them hop around and about then my legs took a twitch.......hence the thought I guess.
2. new pet peeve:
someone is walking out of a store....and i stop to let them go across the walkway ( I'm nice like that..teehee)....but instead of just walking straight across, they walk at a diagonal...........and it takes them twice as long to get across!!!!!! WTF! Hey, I stopped...I did my part....now do yours.......walk directly across so I can get on with my
Dad had a dream that he was lost downtown and couldn't find his way home. :(
He used to work downtown...and as far as I can tell, he still remembers how to get to any place you need to go. Sad.
Mom had a dream that someone broke into their house and 'manhandled' her while dragging her out of bed. Dad woke her up by patting her and asking if she needed a drink of water or something. That's love.
I had a dream that I was fixing some girls hair. Turning it into big 'Texas' hair with a flip. WTF?
it just keeps on giving. My Dad is a reader. He reads everything. Or used to....actually he still does, but it's getting harder for him. He's practically blind but he uses a helmet thingie that Mom found at the 'eye glass place'. It's basically a magnifier on a hat. ( I'll get a pic and share later) anyway...he reads the paper from cover to cover...ads....letters to the Editor...comics...all of it. It may take him a couple days to read one paper, but he does it. Of course it takes a while because he doesn't remember if he has read it. So, he goes over and over it untill the next day, when a new paper shows up. And then there's the mail....oh good Lord! He examines the envelopes like he's looking for some magic code or something. Last week he kept looking at a brown envelope....turning it over and over.
Me: What's wrong Dad?
D: What's "time sensitive material" mean?
Me: it means they want you to respond within a certain time.
Me: Just to get your attention I guess.
D: but what does it mean?
Me:What does what mean?
D: time sensitive material.
Me: It means you've only got a certain amount of time to act on whatever it is they're trying to sell you.
Me: I don't know Dad....I guess they want to make it look important.
D: Is it?
Me: I don't know...why don't you open it and see what's inside.
After he opened it, it took us another 30 minutes or so to discuss why someone wants him to renew his subscription to the TV Guide and limit the time he has to make that decision.....which is confusing to him because he doesn't want to renew it.
Yeah...........I know............my life is stimulating.
Whenever one of the parentals has a procedure or something that requires fasting....I schedule it for Thursdays. Mom still fixes French toast on Thursdays. Well, Denny's French Toast is her most favorite thing in the world. So, if I schedule stuff on Thursdays, she doesn't have to cook it.
I reminded her this past Wednesday that the next day was a 'Denny's' day. She got all perked up and started doing a little 'bobble-head' thing with a big cheesie smile and did a little happy-dance thing while sitting at the table. It's one of those things that you'd have to see to get the full effect. :) Dad had to have a blood test for his diabetic appt. next week. Then she got more excited when she realized she'd only have to wait one day after that to get it again. She says she would put up with a procedure every day if she could get Dennys afterwards. I'm not sure if that makes me happy or sad. hummmmmm
Ok. I'm squished. I'm actually tired now. should be cuz it's after 1 in the freaking morning.
