I think I have gone insane. As if the two and a half dogs (I say half because we have Steve's dog part of the time) AND the rabbit we have as pets, we now also have two kittens. Can anyone say "sucker?" Really. We stopped to just look at them, and ended up taking the last two home. What can I say? If nothing else, I really like Asian food so perhaps they might come in handy at some point in the future, you never know.
I have this problem with moodiness and despair for a day or two about a week before I start my period. No big surprise there, I am sure (and sorry to the three men who read this). So when we were at Rudy's on Saturday, I came across this little travel tin of tea that is supposed to be an all-natural balancer for those pesky hormonal issues. I brewed up a cup of it last night, and let me ask you this: have you ever put fresh wood chips down in your flower garden, but then underneath them are the old, half-decayed chips that smell sour and compost-y? Close your eyes and imagine that smell; add to it the smell of the dog shit you stepped in yesterday that you thought you got out of all the crevices in your shoes but didn't, slightly burned toast, and a very light yet still there smell of Murphy's Oil soap in mop water from three days ago. If you have all those lovely smells floating around your nostrils, you know what this tea tasted like. Needless to say, my loved ones (sorry Steve and April and Jacquie and kids!) are simply going to have to put up with my bitchy mood for another day.
It looks like I might just have a computer at home this weekend. My dad has been working on one for me (he is a computer fixer/builder in his spare time. When he isn't buying Jaguars and Porsches on Ebay and fixing them up, that is), and it soundsl ike he is bringing it over on Saturday. I called to have DSL hooked up yesterday, so with hope both will be up and running by Saturday night. I am so excited about it that I can hardly stand it-which just goes to show you how much a nerd I really am at heart.
There are too many things going through my head right now; a full brain is better than an empty brain, for sure, but there are TOO many things up there and I am having a hard time sorting through them all. So I will end this pathetic little post with this: I think I mentioned that I am planning a giveaway when I move to my new WordPress digs, right? So I am going to be giving you all hints in the next couple of weeks, but you aren't going to know they are hints. Might be something I write an entire post about, OR it might be just a small little mention. So pay attention to the details, ok? And April? I think I might have to disqualify you for this particular giveaway; you know me FAR too well!
