On another subject…

I sat down to work on the blog and get a few e-mails written. Looked over at the couch to find Lucy staring at me. Couldn’t help but giggle. She’s still staring.

This usually means she’s thinking of bugging me to go out but is too lazy to get up as of yet. She’ll move when her bladder says GO NOW!!! Then she’ll do the pee pee dance and bark at the back doors.

Lucy is a hoot.

Gavin will start to fuss in about an hour. You can set your watch by his poddy breaks.

 This face!

Free HBO

Means I can watch Bill Maher rip apart the orange troll with finesse.

I wish he was on regular TV so people would learn to think.

Is it just me or…

Why is it, that the more your back aches, the heavier the laundry baskets?

The more you want to sleep, the more things keep you awake?

The less social you are feeling, the more people show up at your door?

Have you any more to add?

SOS… this country is in trouble

The orange troll, the bilious billionaire, the nutcase in office, the man who would be king, the man who should be committed, not my potus, the child-handed, weird rug wearing jerk needs impeaching.

This idiot of the highest caliber has his finger on the red buttons of nuclear launches.

This child-man has the temperament of a sleep deprived three year old.

Wake the hell up people and take him down. Put him in a rubber room. Better yet …a jail cell.

I swear it’s a conspiracy

There are days where the world conspires to keep me from getting enough sleep.

It started with Lucy deciding to climb all over me (before my alarm went off at 10 a.m.) and bark in my face. Yeah, she had to pee although I’d taken her out at 4 a.m.

Got the dogs done, The Curmudgeon had his breakfast, dogs went out for a second time and I climbed back onto the couch to try for a bit more sleep.

That didn’t happen. After the 6th nonsense phone call–whatever happened to that list we’re supposedly on? I was ready to cry. So, so tired.

I no sooner started to doze off again when the mailman rang our doorbell, which is directly above the couch…it is loud Westminster chimes… LOUD. CHIMES. Peel me off the ceiling LOUD.

I do have a new, quieter doorbell sitting in the kitchen still in the box. Where it’s been for almost two years waiting for someone to install it.

Volunteers? Yeah, that’s why it is still in the box.

A long and boring day

Oh yeah, nothing like having a day drag on and on.

Spend over an hour at the neurologist’s office and then another hour at the hospital lab while he got blood tests done.

The only excitement in the day was when I realized I’d left my Kindle behind at the neurologist’s office. The Curmudgeon called them on his cell phone while he waited to go in for his blood test and sure enough they had it.

I went back for it–so glad the office is  only a mere block away.

How romantic…

NOT!

Ah, yes. Valentine’s day.

A day for romance. Not effing likely.

Perhaps dinner out. Nope, he hates to eat out these days.

Instead, I get to take him to his neurologist appointment and spend an hour or so listening to him whine and them telling him all the things they can’t do for him.

don't fucking care bear

 

Survey says….

And so it begins…with local politics now.

Usually we screen our calls. (Yes, if you call here and don’t speak to my answering machine you will not get me.)

I decided to answer a called marked Denver that had a phone # for shits and grins and found it to be a young man taking a political survey.

LOL!!!

Now, how many times do you think I cracked that young man up during the survey with my observations on politics today?

Especially when he asked my opinion on the orange troll and his cronies…

suppose

Time for the orange troll to go

To the orange troll and all of his cronies:

Women are stronger than you think.

Women are smarter than you think.

Women usually have plenty of patience.

You have pushed us too far.

You will learn that women will not sit down and shut up.

Not all women are afraid of you.

Most of us find you disgusting.

100-proof

It never fails…

It seems that whenever there is some sort of celestial event, we have cloudy skies.

Sigh.

Yeah, white dogs and black clothes…such fun.

Way too much snow for Lucy and me

Lucy ready for snow…not really. She hates it!

Does this dog look thrilled with the idea of going outside in the snow? I think not.

Wild weather approaches

According to our weather reports, beginning at 4 a.m. (2 hours from when I am writing this), we will have snow. The first significant snow of our winter here.

I could’ve done without it.

Four to nine inches to fall at last report. Yeah, they can keep it.
