Mother knows best

I've missed chatting it up with you guys here on the blog. For an all too brief moment the world outside lured me away, but with the advent of the air conditioner, I am back on the net. My latest wish list find is here you should check this bad boy out! An automatic cigarette rolling machine that makes a pack in 5 Minutes! Way cool.

I've started going to a foot doctor...I've decided that I'd like to be able to walk when I'm 40. My feet aren't really any better, but the arthritis medication they gave me is doing wonders for my back! Right now I'm on the hunt for appropriate shoes that don't look like they belong on an 80 year old man. Leather boxes with velcro straps in white just don't appeal to me. Something promising that I've found are a new style of crocs. If nothing else, I could wear them when I'm not at work. I've been put off by the bright colors and sandal style in the past, but now there is an alternative. Not super cool, but not too bad.

I had a great birthday; it lasted about three days. Crissy and I took a jaunt to Champaign for tiramisu and book shopping on Sunday...Monday (the day) she made me bruschetta burgers for dinner (YUM) I got a Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake at work (YUM) and I drank a bottle of Black and Blue (YUM YUM). Tuesday I had two more cakes at work from the folks that weren't there on Monday. Let's face it, I love sugar.

Gonna have to make a trip to the Depot on my day off, much as I hate to do it. The bedroom door knob just randomly fell off, and porcelain doesn't fair well in a fight against tile. I'm feeling that need to kill off vegetation again, so I'll probably also get some spray killer to help in the war against the stuff growing behind the garage. Oh how I miss the days when you could just pour whatever noxious chemical (like gas) you wanted to in your yard and the neighbors wouldn't call the EPA. Oh well, those days, along with corporal punishment, are long passed.

Don't be strangers!
