I caught them - Duffy and Peanut, arch enemies and sworn to fight each other to the death over any spilled crumbs of food on the floor....give them a rainy day and quiet and they just decided it was easier to snuggle than fight.
Wouldn't it be something if all our problems could be solved like this? A good solid storm, a nice roaring fire, maybe a cup or two of green tea and BLAM! Peace in the Middle East or an entire year without having to threaten management with a strike in order to get a lousy 1.2% raise.
Ok, so that may be a bit unrealistic; however, it was fun to sneak up on the normally bickering dog and cat and catch them peacefully sharing the big comfy chair in the family room. And when they later try to deny it ever happened I have photos....this is the cutest one, but there are more.
Thank you, Kodak.
I feel much better today. That weird, hot sandpapery feeling I had all through my body yesterday seems to be fading. It's still there but not nearly as raw and awful feeling. It still hurts to sit in on position for too long but I would bet that is going to last for awhile. I have my extra-strength Tylenol (because regular strength will just not do) and there is a Law and Order Marathon on some channel somewhere - oh, and I can always check out the Oscars later...aren't they on tonight? I was disappointed that Juno was nominated and Bella ignored but I was not surprised. Afterall, Juno is raw, more intense...the people speak weirdly and use very hip slang and the girl is not really very likeable....still, the message to choose life is just as important and I am glad to see that someone in Hollywood is listening.
I had to DVR Saturday Night Live to watch it today so Jillian could get to sleep at a decent hour. Tina Fey is one of my favorite writers/performers...I love watching 30 Rock and I think it is great when people don't always get her jokes. Perhaps I relate too well to her - except she has a much better figure. COME ON NUTRISYSTEMS DO YOUR STUFF.
As of this morning I weigh 23 pounds less than I did on January 7th, when I started this food plan, and I just realized today that I will be on it during the height of the 'malt balls disguised as easter eggs' season, which I love. Bags of those - I can eat BAGS at a time. Well, what can I say...they taste good and since when does self control taste as good as malt balls? hmmm?
I checked out the kelly blue book value on my car and let's just say I am in big trouble. Oh well.....maybe they will repair it.....maybe ....because if all they do is give me the blue book value on the car? I can pay off what is left on the loan and have about 30 dollars and change left over.
God? About that Lotto request.....?
Anyway, I am not going to worry tonight. You know, life has a way of just "being" and everything always seems to work out for me. I am one of those people who never really get ahead, but always manage to keep pace and isn't that really what matters?
Yes it does.
Thank you, Lord....my life is good and it is all because of YOU.
