The one that takes me out for the first 'royal wee' gets to rest upon my leather couch.....aaaaaaaah, this is superbly cozy!
May you be treated like royalty Snuffles, Annie, Luna, Emma, Tonka, Friday, Presley, Penny, Dizzy and other 'kept' four-legged, furry creatures!

Shopped for some undergarments that VG and I should have purchased before today that she needs before the volleyball season kicks in.....hey ladies.....between you and I, the girls choose to wear thong underwear to avoid a panty line in the spandex shorts they wear........sooooooo, seems like that would be uncomfortable to me, VG says it isn't. She didn't start wearing them until ninth grade. Since practice and games will be six days a week starting later in August she needed some more. Also had to get sports bra.........she would die knowing I wrote about it. She doesn't even like anyone seeing us shop for them and she went away as I checked out! I told her ALL women buy undergarments sooner or later! Took her to practice and then ran to the grand Wal-Mart for a few snacks for her and Dudley food AND BigBoy three boxes of cereal...should be good for 3 or 4 days! We began some packing this morning but the bulk of it is tonight. Thankfully they are meeting at 7:30 a.m. instead of 6:00 now!
Just wanted to catch up a bit as the dryer finishes, so I'm off (well, you know that by now), I mean off I go to stomp out present fire! Hope to catch up to you all really soon! :)

Hello everyone! It's been a decent week around here at my castle. The little spot on my leg is taking it's sweet time to heal but not for lack of quality, compassionate care that I am receiving. My desire to eat has become ferocious due to some of the medicine - can't RUN fast enough to the kitchen when it is my mealtime. Not a big eventful week for me, thank goodness, left that to my mom.
Big 'ruff' out to Snuffles, Annie, Luna, Emma, Presley, Friday, Tonka and all you other people lovin' friends!

Mr. Unplugged did not start the day in good spirits which quickly involved and enveloped me as well. A foul mood such as this morning's makes me work alot and I was on my feet five hours then the pain really kicked in but the stubborn streak did as well. Yeah, I know, stubbornness is not a virtue, at least not in this case, but I could make the argument that it can be a useful characteristic at times......save that for another post.
Just yesterday a friend was telling me about her children "fussing and fighting" as she excused herself to count to ten with one of them. I warned her that it would not get that much better. Today, my almost twenty-one year old son and sixteen year-old daughter set out to prove me right. They chose a bad day to pair the "fussing and fighting" with "sick and tired". They were warned that I was about to scream. Sure enough, "would you two leave each other ALONE!" I've not done that in a long time and fortunately for them it was in a mezzo soprano tone as opposed to a high soprano which I've been known to do.....it is very attention grabbing, if not down right painful. Naturally, shortly thereafter, I apologized for yelling at them...BigBoy is sensitive and VolleyGirl, well, she can be too, depending on her mood.
The house is once again quiet. Probably no coincidence that Mr. Unplugged and BigBoy have gone out for awhile. Ahhhh, my blood pressure has lowered, however, the urge to 'scarf' down ice cream has not. Hey, I know it's bad for you but I'm not picking up a cigarette, hitting the bottle or popping a pill. Hmmmmm, maybe I should count to ten...1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. There. I still want it.
Okay, though it's close to 9 pm, I will go paint instead, until time for bed.
Note to self for prayers tonight: Please Lord, help my three, ...uh, I mean two children be kinder and more respectful to each other tomorrow and each day after. Thank you for making me a high soprano - just in case they aren't.
