It was another warm day. It tried to cloud up and rain and it actually did get windy, thunder, and lightening but it's so dry it never rained. I guess the atmosphere soaked it up before it hit the ground.
No turtles came today or yesterday but ConfusedBird has a brand new turtle which is really cute.
I slept better last night. I did a few chores this morning and had to make a grocery list before I went to town to do errands and shop. Before I left my son was called to sub. I went to the post office, gas station, electric co-op, newspaper office, Farmer's Market, Meat Market, Aldis, Wal-Mart, Kroger. I ate at Ryan's as I was going to be in town all day and I managed to make good choices and avoid overeating. Later I realized I probably did not eat enough protein.
I got home before 3 and it took me over an hour to put the groceries away with no help. I had to sling some supper together.
Hubby and I didn't get to walk tonight.
Everyone has favorite movies and I have a bunch as I like all kinds of movies but one movie that my son, husband, and I all love is "Three O Clock High" (1987). It's so funny. If you have never seen this movie you really should.
My MIL completed her radiation and chemo treatments and finally had surgery at Barnes today. It was a shock for all of us as we were led to believe by her that she was having surgery on her neck and it was on her neck and her tongue again. She was in surgery from 7:30 until 5 so it must have been very extensive. Neither of my husband's brothers work so one of them is with her there and he is totally confused and upset and so is my husband. They seem to think their mom didn't know she was having half her tongue removed but like I told hubby, surgery requires a permit with informed consent and everything has to be spelled out and discussed. At any rate this is very odd.

I had another night from Hades. Very little sleep. I mean hardly any. I tossed and turned all night long. And kept hubby up too.
It's still fairly warm here and a little muggy. 86 to 88 degrees. The trees are really turning and more leaves fall every day. Some trees are already bare. Hubby and I went for a walk when he got home and saw several deer, plus the usual squirrels, birds, and a cat. Hondo, Daisy, and Baby, of course.
I put turtle food out and had 2 girls and a boy turtle yesterday. None today.

Sorry, no time to blog today. I didn't want anyone to worry that I am still real sick. I am getting better every day but have been busy today. I want to get back on plan soon though - up my game as soon as I am over the MRSA. It is consolidating. Looks like it may not drain.

This is starting out as a déjà vu type blog. Guess what? I over slept again. Yes!! No joke. I'm practically a sloth!! Hanging in a tree somewhere upside down with green moss growing off me. Moving an inch a year. Coming down to pee and take a dump once a week. Stinking. Well not quite but I'm getting there. I was smart enough last night to tell my son to wake me if I was not up when he got up and I wasn't so he did. Thus I was just 15 minutes late instead of a half hour. LOL. Rip Van Mortie.
I feel a lot better today though. Most of the severe fatigue and the body aches and pains are gone. I still have a stuffed up nose. The MRSA lesion is still going strong. No drainage but it is becoming consolidated and harder. I still have a temp.
I had to go to town today because my husband is into his bread-sucking mode again. He goes insane with it sometimes and eats an entire loaf of bread in a day!! How does one pass something like this???? He denies this but it's gone and my son and I don't eat it at all and our 8 chinchillas don't so you tell me who ate it. I look him in the face and ask him if he is telling me that someone broke into the house and instead of ripping off the electronics, silver, jewelry, etc. they ripped off and ate an entire loaf of bread. LOL. He gets peeved. He is eating massive amounts of Halloween candy they have at work too. They have a dispenser and he fills his sandwich bags with it and stuffs them in his pockets. All his pockets are bulging like a chipmunk. LOL. He has a candy addiction.
I had to go to town today anyway as my son needed some vitamins. And I wanted some socks. The selection at Wal-Mart sucks any more. They have tons of socks that are not supposed to look like you are wearing socks. No show socks. Few real socks. I assume that socks are out of style now so you have to hide that you use them - like having a hidden crack habit. "OMG, She's wearing socks. Don't look at her. Yuck!" The check out lady who was my age brought up their lack of socks too. And of course she and I were in agreement, Wal-Mart sucks.
I also wanted to get the TV Guide as we have been chosen by Nielson to do the TV thing again. They always choose us though we must be the weirdest people they panel. Sometimes my son won't watch TV for days. Hubby watches the same programs over and over. He loves American Pickers which I hate. If you've seen one rusty bike you've seen them all. He points out that I was an interior decorator before I became a nurse and I point out that schlepping though hoards of filthy boxes of rusty nuts and bolts while fighting off spiders and snakes is not what I did. I went to high-end air-conditioned furniture stores and purchased ridiculously overpriced products for people who had more money than sense. Hubby also loves Science shows. My son and I are the science majors but he should have been one. Some of those shows are okay but hubby tends to like ones that are tedious and dull and would put even Stephen Hawking to sleep. I am always kind of ashamed to pencil in what I watch as I'm afraid that someone sits there and says, "This woman is supposed to be a college grad?" It's the same concept I feel when I eat out. The old - we are fat so we have to be careful not to order the Triple Baconator with extra cheese and extra bacon and an "Extra Extra Extra Large, Shove-More-In, Fill-That-Box/Bag, Biggie fries" and a gargantuan fully-loaded Blizzard as we know people will think, "No wonder this heifer weighs a ton - the disgusting pig." So you order the child's meal and eat it, the cardboard box it came in, and the cheap toy in the privacy of the bathroom and then hit the drive through for some real food. LOL.
My friend ConfusedBird, who lives in my region of the country, has encouraged me in the past to check out Goodwill for some clothes. Confusedbird is young and pretty and could make a potato sack look good and I'm old and........well............really really really......... old. LOL. I was alive prior to permanent press. I didn't think that would have much for me but she said she has seen things there that her mom would like. In pictures her mom and I have similar taste. ConfusedBird is very convincing. Besides I trust her as she has given me a lot of good tips so I thought, well, why not try it. I went today and bought 2 pair of jeans and a t-shirt for $14!! They fit perfectly and are like brand new. And they were clothes that I would have actually bought for myself new. Now I have 3 pairs of pants that actually fit. So I am really happy. Happy for my new clothes and happy that I have a good friend like ConfusedBird. Having younger friends is really nice because they help you break out of your comfort zone. You can try new things and not be so.............old. LOL.
