This and that
THOSE DARNED COPS:
I was reading in the paper this morning about the Sheriff’s Department ticketing fair goers. Now these tickets weren’t issued to the people in the fair but rather fix it tickets on their cars while they are sitting in the parking lot! I’m not talking one or two, but 20!! These citations were for missing front license plates, tinted windows and the like. How frustrating – you have a wonderful day at the county fair, you return to your car hot and tired and you are greeted with a ticket. That is really reaching in my opinion (and my hubby is a cop!).
I had a hard time getting any work done this week. You know how you are on a website, and you see something cool that leads you to another website and then something on that website catches your eye? Well I did that for about three days in a row. One web page led to another and before I knew it I had 243 tabs open and absolutely nothing constructive got done.
AIR CONDITIONING BATTLES:
It is hot here – we are in the middle of a heatwave. Now in addition to the standard heatwave, I am battling my own personal heatwave- pre-menopause! We have air conditioning, thank goodness, but the problem is that the upstairs (where I spend most of my time – my computer is there) of our house is like a sauna and the downstairs is much cooler. Hubby stays down there most of the time. Now on the weekdays this isn’t a huge issue- I just crank up the a/c and enjoy. The weekends, however, are a different story. Hubby is home then and he does not seem to see the need for the A/C as much as I do. I not so fondly call him the A/C Nazi (remember the soup Nazi on Seinfeld?)… “NO A/C FOR YOU!”. Well he isn’t the one with hot flashes, and besides one doesn’t generally work up a sweat while firmly planting themselves on the couch directly in front of the vent. Each time I go downstairs, I adjust the A/C, and head back to what I was doing….ahhh that feels nice! Hmmm I soon feel a little flushed, then I break out in a sweat . Dammit he did it again. He turned the ac down/up whatever., so I go back downstairs readjust it again, etc. This scenario goes on all day long.
Well I think they might have found out what the issue is with my abdomen…they thought that it was a cyst in my bile duct, but now they think it might be Duodenal Diverticulitum…yeah – that’s what I said too. I go for an Upper GI x-ray on Monday morning…I hope they will be able to figure out this mystery. I have had this pain under my right rib forever and it’s driving me crazy.
I think that’s about it for my this and that’s!…Oh – our “Back to School” event starts tomorrow (Sunday), so don’t forget to stop by and enter to win. First up tomorrow is a Carolina Pad collection. Both Momma’s Review and Eighty MPH Mom are giving away a set! Our giveaways will begin at 10:00 a.m.
