EARL!! Don’t Even Think About It!

Well, this is the first hurricane of the east coast and boy is my head not happy!  My MIL is just “business as usual” but my hubby and I went out and bought flashlights and batteries like all newbies around here.  LOL  We got the generator all fired up “just in case” along with putting up all the lawn stuff.  We haven’t done anything like that since we lived in Okinawa and had typhoons!  Those were fun though.  We lived in cinder block (cement) houses, so I knew we were so safe.  We would have “typhoon parties” where our friends would come over and we would have lots of food and watch movies and sleepovers.  We hardly ever lost power over there, so it was lots of fun.  Here….I guess it is a lot different.  My husbands parents are used to it.  They said usually it is mostly high winds, rain, flooding, and loss of power.  They haven’t had a bad one for a while.  She is forgetful now and can’t remember when  the last one was.  We went shopping today at the base and got groceries.  She gets paranoid about running out of food so she is stocked up on all kinds of things.  Bless her full little cupboards!  They predict Earl to hit us around Thursday night, just north of us on the Outer Banks, about 45 minutes from where we live.  That is if he lands right where they say….which we know how meteorologist are sooooo dang right on the money!  LOL!


Stay tuned, I may even have pictures….if Earl lets me, he may not allow it!  He may take my internet….he is such a bad boy!


My Experiment

I have decided that I am going to do an experiment on food and see if any of them cause me to have migraines.  Yup….I never noticed a single item I have eaten to give me a problem in the past, but I am going to start with one item, like gluten I think, and eliminate it, and see what happens. 


Then I will try wheat and then soy items.  They seem to be the biggest culprits I have heard about.  If anyone has any information, please post.  At this point, I am at my wit’s end.  My neurologist is ready to give up on me.  He wanted to send me to a pain clinic.  What the heck?  So I just need to figure things out on my own.  It’s sad when your own Dr. doesn’t even want you any more!  What are they going to do for me at a pain clinic that they didn’t do at the neurologist?  I’m sick of Dr.’s  I will try my little experiment and see what happens.  The most that can happen is I can have less headaches or more, right?  LOL!  Stay tuned for the updates….



YEAH!!!  We have a survivor!  She is gonna make it!  Me lil sissy is gonna live to blog another day!  She went in for her colonoscopy this morning and only had diverticulitis.  So all she has to do is EAT MORE FIBER!!!  YEAH!!!   I was a wreck all last night and this morning, as I am sure she was and Di too.  But being 1,500 miles away….well, I wasn’t there to hold her lil paw and so, I was just pacing til I had word.  Anywho, you can all rest easy now, well, at least until she has another test of some sort.  Cuz she still is anemic which means that she is still losing blood somewhere, so they may want to do some other kind of test.  Ehhhhh, the gray hairs I’m earning with this one.  She will probably blog all about it, even with pictures, make sure your NOT eating when you log on, EWWWWW, (only cuz I had pics with mine, NO, I didn’t post mine, YES, she will!) So, until then, me lil buddies, au revoir, and ta ta for now! 


Don’t Tell Me I Got Another One…

Well, I am feeling a little blue, so that is why I am writing in the pink.  Yup…got another freaking migraine again.  Every time the wind blows these days it seems I wind up with a very bad headache.  What do you guys do for headaches when you get them?  I have tried so many remedies now, I am at a loss.  I am willing to try anything.  I have my few things that I still do and a few stand-bys that the Dr. has given me for when “when all else fails” and all that crap.   Ya-da ya-da ya-da blah blah blah, give me a break.  *Yawn*


*Subject change* lol  anyway…..this weekend has been cooler around here.  at least that is good.  i have gotten a few things done around the house.  i got to babysit again for me little babies.  that was a lot of fun.  my son and his family are moving into a little bigger apartment on monday and tuesday, so those 2 days will be very busy. 


my hubby just got a new job.  he really doesn’t need to work.  he is retired military.  but he wanted to do something.  we take care of his parents here.  since his dad is in the nursing home now, he wanted to do something.  his mom is not needing care, so he is working part time at a furniture store.  he had his first day today.  he was like a kid going to his first day of school!  so cute in his lil tie and shirt.  and he was nervous.  i told him to play nice with all the others.  he was on his feet all day, but he sold close to $1500 worth on his 1st day!  i was so proud. 


well, my sister is having another procedure this week.  poor little thing.  her colonoscopy is tuesday.  “C” will probably comment or let you know how it all goes on her blog, but if not, i will post here, she may be out of it for a day or two.  she has been through a rough bit this last year.  please remember her this week. 


well, i will go now and remember this my bloggin buds: 


I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant


Babies, babies, whos’s got the babies??

Why I do, of course!  And I have had them all weekend!  My lil grand babes have got mom and daddy working, so Nonna and Papa got to keep them until their schedules synced together.  So, today it is our house, and I am cooking a home made spaghetti, started it this morning.  It smell delish, wanna join us?  You are all welcome.  As long as you bring your toys and play nice.  K?





my lil sammy and i, he didn’t feel good here.


this is my lil molly moo, she isn’t here, but..cute.





and finally me and my jordy bug.



And there you have my fun filled weekend, lots of laughs, love, food, diapers, poop, snot, a few headaches, sore muscles but hey, it is all worth it.  I got one more night next week, and then all done. So what did you do fun this weekend?  Can’t wait to dig into that spaghetti.  Hope I don’t have to wipe it off the newly renovated white walls and neat floors???  AGHHH!!!  note to self: get out one plastic shower curtain to drape over dining room! lol

How Stupid Can You Be?

I’m watching the world’s dumbest criminals and this guy and his girl, drunk as a crap, higher than a kite, show up at the police station, to get a ride home. that is not the funny part. while they are standing there waiting….he is playing with himself….no lie….she is staggering back and forth…..swaying to the music, (i don’t think there really was any playing, i didn’t hear any) and then she goes to sit on the bench. bless her little inebriated heart, she misses it by about a foot and falls flat on her butt! he runs over to her and yells, “get up bitch, you want to get caught?” then the police happen to stroll out, lol, and catch them yelling at each other. they happen to frisk them. the fella has some weed in his shoe, and you know what he says? “what, thats not mine….its orgegano!” Talk about your rotten luck! DUMMIES!

This is not in the stupid category, but funny anyway... going to visit dad in law at the nursing home tonight….we sat down to chat with him, asked him what was new like we always do. he said, “i shit my self.” i just almost fell off the couch. i tried not to laugh, cuz it wasn’t really funny, but then it was. i didn’t want to look at my husband then i knew i would lose it. i glanced at mom in law, saw her nostrils flare cuz she was holding it in, but then dad started to giggle about it and so we all guffawed and had a laugh about it. me, well, i got so tickled it lasted a bit longer, like maybe 30 or so minutes. i had to walk away. yup, you can’t take me anywhere. well, if you shit yourself, don’t expect me to keep a straight face, k? just sayin’.


Another Day, Someone Else’s Life

This is so weird that I haven’t written in a week. Well, I am recovering from my vacation, that does take some time. Yeah, sitting around watching movies, shopping, eating, playing games, swimming, visiting can be exhausting. DON’T ATTEMT IT IF YOU HAVE A HEART PROBLEM!!

Meanwhile, since renovations, I have been hanging pictures, putting things back where they belong, because hubby’s don’t know a thing about how to do those kind of things. I have more stuff than I know what to do with! PLUS my mil has kept everything she ever owned and I have to go through all her things with her, and sort through, sift, decide what is worth keeping and not, and look at her throw it away. Things they have had for over 50 years! How do you tell someone this letter or card is garbage now? Or this paper bag is not worth anything? She saved EVERYTHING! Some things are worth keeping. But come on…a hospital bracelet from 1950? For no reason, not even a birth….just because…ewwww, the germs. Where is the Lysol?

Ok, enough depressing stuff, so we went to the thrift store….and my hubby….bless him, thinking we are getting rid of stuff, in his little mind, thinks we need to get a few little items. I said to him, or should I say gave him the “look” you girls know what I’m talking about….that look that means what are you thinking? Are you out of your freaking mind look? Yup…that one. Well, we have a perfectly good desk in our back office. Was it good enough? Nope. He wanted to buy this oak one that is way bigger and better. And costs money. Money I could of spent on something way more useful….like I don’t know, a mouse trap, or batteries, or bellybutton lint remover kit. But NO, he had to have the desk, plus a veggie steamer, plus a fondue pot, plus a key holder to hang our keys on. We did need that, I will give that to him. All the other crap….I promise will be at Goodwill in the next year. You may even be buying it! What was he thinking….was he even thinking? I don’t think he took his brain with him when he left this morning….

just for you veggie....and for suz, you old lady and chris! what a bunch of old farts...get your spectacles on! geez! just kidding, hurt me lil irish eyes too, so won't be using that crappy font again! enjoy veggie!
