Just a Quick Note

Sorry my dear minions, but I haven't been well. Bronchitis is kicking my ass. I thought this was a really bad cold but doc says otherwise.  SO, I won't be posting since I would have to get out of bed and David gets mad at me for that.
TTFN my friends

Day After Christmas and Day Nine Of My Incarceration

Blessed Yule my dear minions. Yesterday was really nice!! It totally got better as the day wore on. David wandered around the house with his hands in the pockets of his jeans all afternoon. He was bored shitless cause Jerry Springer wasn't on. Me? I was happy as a clam. After dinner I laid in bed with my feet up, with the puppies lying beside me as I read a book.

Today I slept in til 8am. I got up made myself some coffee, David is not a coffee drinker, grabbed some rice cakes and took my meds. Now I'm writing this post and I hope to do some reading and comments on other blogger posts that I have missed in the past three days or so. There is so damned much catching up to do

Merry Christmas/Festivus/Blessed Yule And My Eighth Day Of Incarceration

For those of you who have no idea of what Festivus is, please click on this site, and read ... I'll wait.

Mmmkay, now, Merry Christmas and Blessed Yule my dear minions. I hope all of you are getting what you want or need for the holidays.

Me, I need a vacation preferably to Figi. No hubby or farting puppies, just me and a sun drenched beach. My toes in the sand with beautiful blue-green waters to gaze upon. Really I do!!!

This morning I got up about 6:30 with the cleaning bug again. I think the only thing not cleaned was our car and truck in the drive way. David kept saying stop or you'll be laid up for a whole week in pain but I just couldn't. His daughter and her hubby would be stopping by and I wanted the place nice looking, that is minus the puppy toys and fur.

They stopped by about noon and we traded gifts and talked awhile and then they left. Then I started on the laundry. Sorry but this seems to attack me every winter. It's like a disease. I just can't help myself. David only noticed this year cause he wasn't outside like usual. It's a little colder this year than last and that means he is bothering me.

Next week he will be busy though. I plan to put him to work building me some book cases for my books while I move my stuff into his daughter's old room. I am hoping to keep him outside and out of my hair for at least the remainder of the vacation he has at home

Christmas Eve And My Seventh Day Of Incarceration

I hate when He's home. David is beginning to drive me up the wall now. Yesterday I tried to stay busy by baking cookies. He pretty much stayed out of my way. What irks the shit out of me is that he watches trash TV all day long. And it blares from the media room like he thinks the whole neighborhood needs to hear this crap.

I had to stop reading my romance novel and close the windows because it was so annoying for the neighbors to hear. Then I had to explain that common sense says these dumb asses are paid to act this way on these programs. They are recruited from trailer parks in Kentucky [no offense] to come on the show and coached to do this crap. People are not this stupid or this ugly in real life. Of coarse he won't believe me so I let him be.

I went back to my cookie baking and reading my romance novel, knowing this stuff is for real.

Yule Blessings And Happy Solstice, Day Four Of My Incarceration

Yule Blessings and Happy Solstice my dear minions. I do hope some of you were able to catch the lunar eclipse this morning. It was cloudy so I missed it.

There is something about a  full moon that just energizes me. New moons do that to me too. Anywho I got up this morning and had my coffee and took my meds and proceeded to take the pantry and laundry room apart. I cleaned everything in sight ... with a 30% bleach solution.

I guess David smelled it cause he stayed out of my way most of the morning. Yes I said MOST of the morning. He started bothering me about the time I started to put stuff back in place. I told him to go get his tools and junk out of his daughter's old room. He started getting mad cause I wanted to get the room ready for my moving in there with my computer and artsy fartsy stuff next week.

Now he's all mad and shit cause he thought I meant for his stuff to go in there with mine. I think I may have a problem on my hands the next few days, trying to explain that a woman needs her space away from her hubby or else hubby will end up missing, lying in a shallow grave in the middle on the desert near Fort Stockton or Alpine. I could make it a road trip for the puppies. They love road trips.

Day Two Of Incarceration

Today is day two of my incarceration. It's not too bad. I only thought of killing him once, so far. 

I'm in the living room while David is in the media room. Yes he keeps coming in here to tell me what I just missed on a TV show he is watching.  At least I can sit in my den of slight peace and quiet with Pandora going in the background. I can keep the doors closed also, but then the puppies will go crazy trying to get away from daddy.

Tomorrow is Monday. It will be the true test of wills. Will I kill him now or after Christmas. We will see. Stay tuned my minions

Death By Husband

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..."
—Opening line of A Tale of Two Cities

In less than 48 hours David will be home for two whole sickening freaking weeks. Yes, I know your plight Judith. I sympathize with you as you do me.

Right now I am trying to think up things to keep him busy and out of my hair. And then there are the things I am thinking of doing to him if he bothers me ... never mind. I can get into a whole lot of trouble if they find the body. Goddess, it was so much easier living near the desert in El Paso. So many places to hide ...  the bodies ... well I digress way to much it seems.

I was thinking of getting him to help me move all my treasures [ my desk, computer, art table, bookcases, etc..] into his daughter's old room. That way I can have peace and quiet for a bit. That would mean no more "hey hon, check out this video" or " look, look, look, you're gonna miss this!!!"  I'll show him " you're gonna miss this."  If this works the way I plan. I should be able to get more stuff done without his silly interruptions.

Then I'll have to find other things to keep him busy besides watching Jerry "Trash TV" Springer all day long and then coming around and asking me if I want to go for a ride to some store with him. OMG!!!  I'm gonna die a horrible, way too unfortunate death!!!  Why me, Goddess?  I've been a good Witch most of my life. I never killed ... anyone that didn't really need ... never mind.

Nothing But Fun

WOW!!!  I LOVE this thing!!! The last 10 hours were truly spent having total unadulterated FUN!!!  I mean to tell y'all that this Wacom Introus4 Medium Pen Tablet is nothing but fun. I was up most of the night checking out all the cool software and goodies it came with. It might be the best thing I ever bought since my first car.

If anyone is interested, as I know you are, Traveler. When you get the Tablet you will notice that it has two different ways to hook it up to your computer. Yes, they have thought of the left handed person as well as the right handed. The disk sets up the Tablet on your computer and then it will show you a table of contents. This is very important because when you look down the list of contents  where it says to Register the Tablet,  just click on that and it will take you to the Wacom site.

When you get to the Wacom site, follow the directions and enter all the necessary info on the Tablet to register it. Then you will go to the download section automatically. There are downloads for Corel Painter Sketch Pad, Adobe Photoshop Elements 8, which can be upgraded if you want to pay for it. There is Nik Color Efex Pro Brushes, and Autodesk Sketchbook Express.

Make sure you click on everything that you can get for your PC/MAC [for Mac users, make sure your Mac is up to date and can handle the software or it will not download] and then download them to a special folder on the computer. When you get out of that software area from Wacom you can never go back to redownload the stuff if you accidentally lose it or if you change your mind later and think oh I need that software that I didn't download before. It will not let you go back. So take the time and download everything in sight and order the DVD's that are available, I did.

When you get some time to open the software and finish setting it up, the Adobe and Corel software will ask for License keys. Go check your email and get them from there. Save both emails in a special folder on your email site so you will never lose them. Even if your computer crashes this stuff is safe.

Added Bonus: When you need some inspiration or ideas on the settings in the Introus4. Go to the Wacom site and check out all the added goodies they offer you for free. I spent two hours on that site and barely made a dent in all the stuff they offer. It all includes artists and their ideas to help you. Take advantage of this because it comes in handy.

Special notes: The Tablet has a cover you can order from It's a hard foam cover pouch with zippers [Be.ez 100828 LArobe Sleeve for Wacom INTUOS4 MEDIUM (Black/Wasabi)] and it comes in different sizes to fit your Tablet. Believe me when I say it is an investment to keep the Tablet safe from scratches and dust. I have a small pouch I saved from a purse I no longer needed. It now holds the Pen and accessories and the mouse that comes with the Tablet.

Also order the extra Pen [INTUOS4 Pen Accessory Kit] set for the Tablet. You will need it. One more thing ... READ, READ, READ, everything in the help sections of the different software programs. It helps to know what you are doing. Don't forget the Wacom site. It also offers tips and tricks to help you in your artistic talents with the Tablet.

Just Crap To Keep You Informed Of The Crap I'm Going Through

Wait I need my coffee first...

My dear minions. I have only three, maybe four more days of Sanity left before David takes his two weeks off. Oh woe is me, my minions.

I was not able to blog this past Friday or Monday because David was home taking time off because he has all these freaking sick days piled up. So my time or is it my sanity is limited. Yes it is a dire situation for me.

Mmmkay, on the lighter side, I was thankful that I received all my goodies from before David decided to tell me he was playing hookie from work on Friday. I lit a candle and prayed really hard that Federal-Excuse would make it to the house before David got home on Thursday evening.

It was close but the Fed-Ex truck was driving down the street after dropping off my Intous4 Tablet package when David turned into the driveway on the otherside of the house. I had just a second of time to stash it behind the couch before he came in the kitchen door. Whew, that was cutting it close!

Friday we spent most of the day driving around Christmas shopping for the kids [ David's daughter and her hubby and their fuzzy kids the Boxers, Biscuit and Gravy]. Yes you saw them in a much previous post on Blingy Week. Also we were hunting down some new toys and goodies for our fuzzy kids too. I dearly love Petsmart. After all that running around up in San Marcos, it was so good to be home. I was so freaking tired.

On Saturday and Sunday I spent the days cleaning and doing laundry since I had like this energy boost in me that I couldn't get rid of. Then of course Monday I paid dearly for it by being laid up with pain again. Freaking damned Fibro!!!

But this morning I was able to get at all the packages that I had stashed from David including a gift for him that I still need to wrap. We agreed to not to exchange gifts but he needs this in his tool box so I don't need to hear him bitch about losing certain tools again ... ever!!!

Okay back to the other goodies. I got the MS Publisher 2010 and installed it on Little Hal cause he has more room then Hal does. Besides I noticed Hal has been crashing more often than he should. Even though I ran the Doctor Program on him and cleaned up some obsolete files. I think he's just getting old. I might need to start looking for another HP computer really soon.

Oh yes another thing,  an old blogger friend is back,  Dark Mother has returned to the fold of insane bloggerdom. Yes!!! All is right with the Universe again. Welcome back my dear. I missed you.

Strange Crap I Found On The Web

This got me started. I was in Walmart and I saw it and laughed my ass off when I saw it. David couldn't believe it either. Who would put a product named Gorila Snot on their hair. ahahahha.

And then there is this one. Anti Monkey Butt Powder. For when you get monkey butt, whatever that is.

And then the ultimate for speeders. Anti-Ticket Donut for your favorite Policeman in your life.
I kid you not.

You can find these and other wacky stuff on
Strange New Products. Please check it out for those wacky stocking stuffers you are looking for. I am thinking of getting a few things for David. BWAAHAAhahahahhahahhahaaa!!!

Weird Rants

I was checking my stats this morning, do you know that 55% of my viewers use Firefox and 35% still use Internet Exploder? Wild, huh? Then there are the weird things they put in for the Word Searches. What the shit is a  "boo monstres"??? I mean some of the stuff I see on my stats make me laugh harder than what I see in the blogs I read.

FREEZING Pictures, Images and Photos
Now on to the cold stuff.  Who the hell left the door to Canada opened!??  I really want to know!  It's colder than a Witc.....  nope not that .... well diggers ass is what I meant. I mean to tell you the puppies won't go outside unless I drag them out with me. That means I have to don a coat and 2 pairs of gloves and wool hat and my mukluks just to go outside.  Then I have to lie to them by grabbing my car keys and sweetly say "let's go for a ride." And it's only 46 outside. I really suffer from the cold in my middle age.

I have to say Thank You to those who will be attending my funeral possibly this weekend. Yes, the Tablet ,,,  read this weeks posts to catch up, I'll wait ... will be here by Friday and if not, with my luck maybe on Saturday when David will be home. Damned Fed-Ex, Can't you take the Saturday off like UPS??? Would it kill you to be off just one freaking day?

Sidetracked there. Oh yes. BlakkDuchess will deliver my eulogy and make sure I have something to do in the afterlife besides twiddling my thumbs. She has graciously offered to make sure that the Tablet is buried with me. Someone please keep tabs on her and make sure I get that tablet in my casket. On another side note, would someone make sure David has yellow roses for me at the funeral. You know, being Texas and all.

For Linda. I know what you mean about the Meniere's. I was diagnosed with Labyrinthitis three years ago. It's very similar with the vertigo and the nystagmus symptoms. One thing about Labyrinthitis is that it starts with a blinding ear ache in my left ear and then the tinnitus starts and then I have dizzy spells for about 20 to 24 hours after it all starts. Then it goes away. And it's like it never happened.

It started about yesterday morning around 7AM until this morning. I am fine now until my next episode. They usually come on with stress. Ugh!!! When have I never had stress in my life ahahahahaa. So that is one of the many plagues in my life, my dear friend. I have learned to live with it, that and the Fibro.

To all my other dear sweet minions. Your comments do not go unnoticed. I read them when I can and have to laugh at all the funny remarks. Y'all are entertaining as hell!!

Tis The Season To Warm The Puppies

I woke up late this morning and found two little shivering puppy dogs in bed with me. I couldn't even turn over to see who it was. They were secured, slightly under my back. Lucy had her legs under me and her little head on my neck. Pebbles was nearly under the lumbar area of my back.

It was quite impossible to turn over to see who was breathing hot and heavy in my ear. I had to get up out of bed. The Shiver Sisters were still lying there worming their way under the blankets. Lazy bums! So I left them there, went to get a shower to warm up my muscles and came back to get some clothes on and they were still snoring in bed. I got some coffee and toast. watched CNN for a half hour then came to turn on the computer to write a post and all I heard was loud snoring coming from the bedroom down the hall. Tis the season for puppies in bed with me again I guess.

Ok, as you know I'm back. Stinking Fibro made me dizzy in line at the Post Office yesterday and I almost passed out. I hate when that happens. David is usually with me and I can leave and sit in the car if it gets bad. It bothers him when I get my migraines and my fainting spells. His mom died of brain cancer. I already had an MRI and I'm okay in the head ahahahahahahahhaaa.  Never mind ... let's move on.

As for the e-zine I am going to take it slow and work things out. I have the MS Publisher coming from, but it won't be here til almost Christmas time. But the Wacom Intuos4 Medium Pen Tablet will be here in a week. I'm antsy as shit about that thing. Also wondering how I will be hiding it from David. When he does find out, I'll be dead meat. SO, who's coming to my funeral ahahahahahahhaaaa.

Update To This Mornings Post

Girlfriends, I think we better hold off on this e-zine for a while longer and let me do some more exploring on this idea. There is so much to think about. Linda made a comment on my last post and she is so right. May the Goddess bless her for adding her insight. I think this has been a pipe dream that I have wanted so much to happen. So for now let's just sit on this idea and think long and hard as to what we would give to this magazine. Like time, energy, blood, yes your blood, sweat and tears.

On a lighter note I did order a few things from today that I have really wanted. One was MS Publisher 2010 ( thanks for the heads up Traveler and SpiritPhoenix)and the other was a Wacom Intuos4 Medium Pen Tablet (Academic Version) and I bought a couple of books too just for grins. I've wanted the Tablet for a long time and I did a lot of consumer checking on this and others like it. So I consider this an early Yule present to myself.

Small Dilemma

I have a small dilemma my dear girlfriends. I found out that there are two very different but great software programs suited for the e-zine WE want to start. Notice the emphasis on the we part. Well Adobe has In-Design which is about $500 and a very high learning curve to it. And Microsoft has Publisher that is for much less than In-Design and a lower learning curve but it takes a lot more work to publish an e-zine with it.

Now I am all for either one of these programs because I can afford either one. I just want your input.
* Has anyone of you ever used either one of these programs?
* Which one would you choose to work with and why?
* If we take this program (Witches E-zine that is)on, I would like to keep on going with it.
* What the hell am I doing here and why am I in this hand basket?

We need to call this magazine something really cool. Something that will get the attention of all Pagans and Witches out there. That includes the younger set, teenagers, who aren't quite sure of his or her path. I want to get them away from the "All Witches are Satanist's" mind set.

And last but not least  .....  I am asking for your help. We won't get paid for this e-zine until we can get someone in charge of advertising. Hell it might just turn into a labor of love for us to just help other uninformed Pagans out there. I kinda like that idea but I know it won't float, so be it.

We will need an Editor in Chief to oversee all material that gets put into this mag. And someone with great artistic skills for artwork or I'll just try to sweet talk an artist I have in mind. I might be able to get her to donate artwork if possible. But if all else fails I'll be willing to buy the artwork from her.

Girlfriends, I really want this e-zine SOOOOOooo damned much to work. I want to get the word out that we are normal people not weirdos like most Christians portray us to be. So I am asking formally for your help if you want to give it ... for free. Notice that for free part there? Please look at the questions near the top and look into what you think might help us all get this thing started.
Thank You.

Wow !!!

Just a quick note:  I was reading some of the online advice to starting up an e-zine for us. This is really going to take a lot of work!!  Also plenty of money like in the three zero to four zero range. I don't know if I really want to do this because I can't afford it.

Plus I'll have to pay everyone to write stuff for it, buy art work, buy a domain name and buy space online to publish it. Not to mention Legal Eagles and Designers to help with the hard stuff.
I want to do it but at what cost? I'll have to talk this over with David and see what he says first before I take on this venture.

Don't worry ... the idea isn't dead yet.
Anyone know CPR???  Haahahahahaa!!

Just A Note Before I Go Slightly Mad

I've been up most of the night reading and researching and I'm nowhere finished. Researching to start a magazine or e-zine is a shit load of work. It will mean even more work IF (I was going to say when)  I decide to start one for us. So this will take some time and great deliberation on my part.

Yule is fast approaching and I haven't even started to decorate yet. David and I have opted to not give each other gifts as usual. Hell, we have each other and everything we could want, so why bother. I kinda like that cause we used to feel bad if the other didn't like the gift. We just enjoy the season and buy for his daughter and hubby and the fuzzy kids.

Speaking of Christmas ...  how do you like the music. I know but it's like me, misguided and weird. I just had to go beyond the norm because people were screaming that they are so tired of the traditional crap that gets overly done by today's music artists. I have to agree on that one. So I found some stuff I liked and now you are stuck with it. neener neener ;P

Well my dear minions I have loads of reading to catch up on and decorating to do. Have a great weekend.

Update And Thinking ... Again.

Update: Lucy is fine.  She was never really hurt bad with the mouse trap incident. She never got the cheese either. Silly little shit. Right now she is lying in her favorite spot behind me in the chair I'm sitting in. At least I know she's not getting into trouble. No more mice caught even though I still have the traps set.

Me, I'm doing fine. Just trying to take each day as it comes along. I can handle the pain somewhat. It's just the tiredness that gets to me. I feel like I'm being dragged into a hole all the time. Someone get me a freaking ladder PLEASE!!!

I seem to be thinking much more clearer now. It's so very strange to me. I was always in a deep fog. It must have been the Fibro doing it to me because since I've been on Cymbalta and Lyrica I'm sleeping deeply and clearly thinking again. No more foggy brain shit. David says he needs to watch what he says around me now because I'm more alert. That makes my witty comebacks on his remarks much more sharp to the touch. ouch!

Okay, I'm going to plead for something. *getting down on my knees ... ouch ... ouch!!*

I want to know if anyone of my minions know of a great Pagan or Witch magazine online or in paper form. Preferably in paper form.  Nothing stupid that portrays us as people who dress in black robes, black eye makeup, long scraggly hair and carrying a stupid staff with a skull on the top of it. We are nothing like that. We are normal people.

I want a magazine besides Llewellyn, Witch's Voice, or Pagan News That portrays Pagans and Witches as normal human beings, everyday housewives, single parents, hard working normal intelligent people with regular jobs that has a Pagan religion that they are proud of.

A magazine that isn't just a few pages to it but thick and meaty like Family Circle. I want a magazine that talks about politics, our problems in life, exercise tips, beauty tips with herbs, some spells, tips for rituals, recipes for all sorts of stuff and of coarse food recipes for OUR holidays.  I want a magazine that isn't afraid to tell it like it is and sets the record straight about things that irk the shit out of me like linking us to cults. And no Fluffy Bunny crap either.

Please is there anything out there like that?

Quick Update

So far mouse body count is 2. Got both of them last night in the laundry room/ pantry. I reset the trap and then went to sleep. There were no more snaps in the night.

David checked it before leaving for work this morning. As he was getting his morning snack together, he forgot to close the pantry. There was a loud snap and a scared black and white Boston Terrorist jumped into bed with me.

David was laughing in the kitchen and I asked him if we caught another mouse. He said a humongous black and white one named Lucy. I looked at Lucy who was shaking next to me what she did and she put her head on my stomach and looked at me like she was saying "wasn't me ma. No pictures, no witnesses, no prints, no proof."

She was scared and when David came into the bedroom laughing she was looking at him like she didn't do anything. David explained the situation to me and I laughed. She's such a Nosy Nellie. Don't think she'll be springing anymore traps any time soon.

They're In Wikipedia!!??? OMG!!! It's True!!

David just sent me an email from his work. It was for a Wikipedia article. I didn't believe it at first then I went to Wikipedia and saw it for my own eyes. My step-daughter and friends are on there. YES!!! For Sleeved Blanket aka Snuggies. They are in the middle picture at a football game for Univ of Texas at Austin. This same picture was in a UT game article also.

I couldn't believe it. But there they are in their Burnt Orange Snuggies at a game in Austin. She is in the center. Her hubby went to get something to drink or eat. But these people with her are all alumni of UT. They tailgate for hours before the game. They are part of the Shotgun 21. Some are high mucky mucks in business in Austin. They all hang out and party together all the time. They know how to let down their hair that's for sure.

Mouse In The House

I need a Cat. These puppies are worthless when it comes to catching mice. I know, dogs can sniff out the occasional mouse but otherwise they are about as useful as tits on a bull.

Yesterday I was walking into the kitchen to start dinner and thought I saw a little gray thing streak across the floor from the refrigerator to the stove. I stepped back a moment cause it scared me that something else besides me was in there.

I grabbed the phone and called David (why is it that we always call the man for help) to ask where he put the mouse trap. He said he would take care of it when he got home. Great. So now I have to make dinner with a mouse running in my kitchen.

Don't even think about calling the dogs in for help. They have squirrels on their minds. Trying to save the pecan population from thieving squirrels is their main goal in life. So in between cooking this and that I was looking for the traps.      

David came home and low and behold he found what I was looking for. The trap was on the mail and key holder on the wall which we don't ever use cause everything gets thrown on the island in the kitchen. So after dinner I set the trap for the little bugger where the dogs won't get him when it snaps.

I waited patiently all evening long ,,, no snap. I checked on the trap after my shower before bed time and locking up the house and no mouse was caught. I laid awake most of the night. The light sound of the snap never came. I looked this morning, no mouse.I might be a basket case before the day is over if that mouse doesn't meet his demise.          

What the hell could he be living on?

All the food is in plastic containers. Ever since the last mouse got into the house from our renovations. I have put everything into plastic containers. Even the boxes of cake mixes are inside a container. They love me at The Container Store.

So I wait with bated breath for that little snap. Then I will laugh devilishly and say "gotcha."

Finally He Went to Work

YES!!! YES!!! YES!!
WOW!!!  That felt like the restaurant scene from "When Harry Met Sally" for a moment there.
Anywho, David went to work and I'm dancing my happy little dance here. Now I can do stuff around the house without him bugging me so much.

Now some of you are saying out there that I will miss him if he dies. But believe me when I say this, I love my sweetie very much ... it's just that he drives me bat shit crazy when he's home like this for the holidays.

The bad thing is that I'll have to endure two more whole weeks of him being off when December 20th comes up. A whole two more freaking WEEKS my minions !!! He won't be going back until next year.  Maybe I should get to the liquor store early to stock up.

How Was Your Thanksgiving...

How was Your Thanksgiving? Mine was loads of fun. Well not really. Thursday was quiet. David and I had a very nice quiet dinner. Nothing happened really, not until later that night.

I noticed my right arm had been hurting for the past few days. I had scratched it while cutting down bushes like a week ago and it healed nicely. Now it hurts like an SOB and it's all red, puffy and it looks like somebody beat my arm with a belt. I have a humongous red welt traveling down my arm to my fingers. Went to the clinic this morning and got an antibiotic. I'll be good in the next few days.

We had to take David's truck this morning to the clinic for my arm because I had a flat tire on my Honda that I know he drove at the time. So the flat is his fault not mine. Neener neener :P

Anywho, during the trip to the clinic, we got rear ended. Good thing it was David's Dodge Ram. Bad thing the guy that hit us smashed his whole front end of the Toyota that he was driving. It was at least $2000.00 damage done to the car and a few scratches to David's rear bumper. No one was badly hurt. But the guy is gonna hear it from his wify poo cause The Toyota was brand new and it was her car.

We got home and then David decided to get the tire off my car and get it fixed. Which he has just done. But he gave me hell cause my car is a rice burner and they have crazy Jacks and places to put them in the trunk... and "How the hell do you get this damned thing out of the freaking compartment in the trunk? Freaking Rice Burners!!" So he says.

I had to show him where it was, how to get it out of the trunk and where to place the Jack under the car. I'd like to show him what to do with it, but he was after all taking it to get it fixed for me.

So now he is out getting us lunch cause it is Friday and he hates to break  his usual schedule and not get lunch from Micky-D's. I only allow him this on Fridays. What can I say... Thank the Goddess he goes back to work on Monday. Until then please pray for me that I don't kill him. CAUSE HE'S DRIVING ME NUTZ!!!

Almost Thanksgiving

It's almost Thanksgiving my minions. So I am asking one last time, if you want me to snail mail you a Christmas Card this year, please send me your home address via my email. I will be getting all my cards out by the end of next week if possible.

David is off this whole week and it's going to be fun. Yes, like pulling my own teeth. You see, He is a TV fanatic and I'm not. So while I am trying to write a post here he is gushing "Oh, Oh, ya gotta see this. I hope they replay it. So that means my whole train of thought just derails.

If I ignore him then he gets all pissed at me and tells the puppies that I don't love him anymore and on and on. He drives me crazy with this.The only way to get rid of him for a bit is to get him to do yard work. Don't get me wrong, my minions. I love him to death. But when he's home all day with me,  he can drive me to drink.

I Knew It Would Happen Soon

Just look what I found at  I love it!!!

I Feel Pretty, Oh So Pretty...

I Feel Pretty Pictures, Images and Photos
I feel a hell of a bit better today, even though I'm in loads of pain. I slept very well for once and I actually had a dream that I can remember for the first time in weeks. Tylenol PM worked for me. Yea!!!
Except for my elbow hurting I feel pretty damned good.

I was able, for once, to get two loads of laundry done and vacuum and mop.  I'll feel it later... I know, I know. But what the hell. I'll do what I can around the house while I can. If I pay for it later, then so be it.

The giveaway stops tonight at midnight my minions so hurry and enter. I am all a giddy. It's my first one and I have all the names so far, folded in my big candy jar waiting for more to be added. So hurry cause entries end at midnight Central Time.

I Feel Like Crap But I Don't Care

I just got back from the Rheumatologist's office.
Great news !!!!     I don't have Lupus.

Bad news !!!!  You'll have to put up with my ass until I croak.  BWAAAHAHAHAHHAhahahahahahahhahahahaaaa!!!!

Just thought all my dear minions would like to know that I will be back to my old cantankerous self starting today. So, just to let some of you who suffer like my silly ass does, my tests came back ok.  I don't have Lupus. It's just Fibromyalgia

Anywho, I stopped taking the Amitriptyline to help me get some deep sleep after it started to wear off during the night about three nights ago. Screw that I'll be taking Tylenol PM if I need to sleep. I will be seeing him again on the 16th of December at which time he will put me on Lyrica along with the Cymbalta that I am taking now.

Ok, to other good stuff ... I would like to welcome all my new minions to the fold. You will each receive my written plan of World Domination as soon as I can get copies. (joking)

Welcome aboard my dears. If you have read any of my previous blog posts, I'm innocent, no bodies, no pictures, no proof, you will know that I tend to cuss like a longshoremen if I get riled. Which is rare, but then I had to stop because I was thinking what if kids are reading this crap. Then I thought ok if kids are reading my crap then maybe I should ask if they know any new swear words. But then I would really be in trouble and I'm babbling again aren't I?

Well the giveaway is almost ended so if you know of anyone who needs to enter that hasn't ... DON'T TELL THEM !!! ahahahahaa more for you Linda ... r i g h t.  And sucking up to me won't get you picked either so stop sending me emails saying how wonderful I am. But I have to say it's been fun and I might do a Yule Card giveaway after this one is over.

I will be back tomorrow with something crazy as usual to talk about. Until then ... Ciao.

Out Of It

My dear minions. I am sorry but I will be out for a few days. I am not feeling quite up to par as I should. So I am going to take a few days off from writing.  I seem to have no energy at all lately. And I'm not feeling good either.  Lucy seems to know what's up because she has been very near me for the past two days now.  She is even following me around the house. Something is up and she knows it. So I will leave you all for now.

Good news is that the giveaway is still on.

Love you all lots

My Humble Thanks and Another Update

 I would like to thank all my dear sweet blogger girlfriends for their well wishes and ideas on how to beat this Fibromyalgia that I hope is not Lupus. David and I are going to look into trying a Sleep Number bed. And I have loads of questions for my Rheumatologist on Thursday. I didn't know so many of you have the same thing. I guess we all have something in common. A sisterhood if you know what I mean. I'm very glad and honored to be in such a sisterhood because I am in such great company. Ok what did I get on the Humble Meter this time?

It's a bit cold this morning and I have to tell y'all if it wasn't for the fact that I had to pee I would never get out of bed. I was so warm and comfy there all wrapped up in my blankets listening to the puppies snoring. They all snore like little babies with congestion. Make a load of noise I can tell you that much. I couldn't get back to sleep, so I got up. They did too and it was like watching clowns pouring out of a clown car at the circus.

I have the heater going and some water on for tea. The Cymbalta is taking charge. The only thing I hate about it right now is that it makes me feel wobbly in the knees. The pain is very minimal and that's what I need. I would like to be normal again but that's a possible no go.

A friend of mine said I should apply for Social Security but I told her no way. I'm still able to get around on my own. I don't need it. Besides I may be able to find a good combination with the drugs and be able to go back to work at the lab. But I may not be able to stand all day like I used to when working. Who knows.

Saturday, November 13, 2010

Update From Last Post

At first I thought, ugh, the drugs no worky for cah cah . But I have to say I am wrong. They are starting to work. Slowly but surely I am starting to feel a bit better. Last night for instance, I was thinking I wasn't getting drowsy like I was the night before and this Amitriptyline shit ain't working at all or my body has already adapted to it.

WRONG !!   I misjudged the time that I had for it to work. It takes about 1 to 2 hours before it takes full effect and when it does boy does it take over the body fast. I only woke up once last night and that was because we had a thunderstorm and the loud thunder woke me plus I had to pee. But I went right back to sleep when I got back into bed. Probably took about 10 seconds for me to do it but I slept all night long until 7:30 this morning. I did wake up with that hung over feeling again but it wasn't as bad as yesterday. I felt like I got 8 hours plus on the sleep.

One problem. It doesn't kill the pain it just overrides the brain and MAKES you sleep. Literally it forces sleep. You have no control. You can get up to pee if you have to but you WILL fall asleep once you hit that bed. I tried it already. I felt like a Zombie when I got up.  Yeppers, the walking dead.

My doctor said I will get used to the drug and the drowsiness will fade with time and my nice 8 hour sleep time will dwindle. Then we will change to something else. Shit, it's an antidepressant. of course my body will get used to it. All I can say is that it is working for what we want right now and I do feel happier during the day.

Taking the Cymbalta is helping too. Since he upped the dosage. It's not perfect but it's better. I have a bit more energy and I can stay on the treadmill or the ellipto-cardio machine before the pain starts to kick my ass. Otherwise I feel better than I was.

I see my Rheumatologist  this Thursday. God/dess that man is fine!!!  I will ask him to up the dosage on my Cymbalta a bit more and see what the lab tests say. Personally I hope it's not Lupus and just the Fibromyalgia. We will see and I will keep you all informed on the outcome of my tests on Thursday night or Friday morning when I can.

Julie,  I hope this does work and will possibly work for Aaron. I will call you on Thursday evening with all the news.

Ramblings For a Friday

It's been a crazy week my minions. First off I started my first ever giveaway on Monday. Yea!!!  I know!!  I tried not to post anything during this week so everyone could see it when they come in.

Yes, stupid me. I know. Why the shit didn't I just set up a small banner for everyone to see on my side panel and they could enter by clicking on it.  Well duh ... I blame it on my freaking meds. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. So neener neener :P

I went to see a Rheumatologist  yesterday afternoon. I want to have his kids!!! Damn he was fine!. *wiping my slobbering mouth* Ok, I'm back to normal, what ever that is now days. SHIT!!! THAT MAN WAS FINE!!!      OUT!!!   OUT !!!!   DEMON!!!

Ok, anywho, He said we are going to try to rule out Lupus but he thinks my problem with all the pain and tiredness is Fibromyalgia.  So that means like I had to give up a pint and a half of blood to the Lupus testing and all the other junk he wants to rule out.  Hmmm, maybe that's why I'm so damned light headed today. I'm still recovering from the Vamp draw.

He changed my prescription and now I'm taking something to help me sleep. He also upped the anti on my Cymbalta to 60mg which seems a bit better. But we will see how long that lasts.

Does anyone in the med field know what  Amitrptyline 25 mg is?  It's a freaking antidepressant with massive side effects. One of them is drowsiness. The other is heart attack and/or stroke!!  I am taking that to help with my sleeping problems. The doctor said it will make me drowsy enough for my body to take over the sleeping part. Shit, I may not even wake up. WTF!!!  

Stuff didn't work last night. Oh It started out fine by knocking out my lights but I kept getting up with pain It was still potent enough to knock out my lights after turning over and rasslin with the blankets ( Yes, I sleep with a blanket or two. Even if it's only 75 degrees in the house... WTF  I'M STILL COLD!!!). 

This morning it was raining when I finally got up. That was around 10:30am. It is taking me 3 hours to write this shit cause I feel hung over like I was at a party and don't remember a thing about it.  Don't you hate when that happens? I sure do.  At least there was no stranger in my bed. I really don't like the hung over part though. That's how I feel right now. Hung over, and I feel like a gray mouse took refuge in my mouth and slept there all night long. EEEEEEWWWWW!!!

I Just Couldn't Pass This One Up... Really

I got a comment on my post from yesterday called Obsession. It made me laugh because he said he had a picture of the very first squirrel that he ever shot.

Now you, my minions, know me quite well. I'm a sick, sick woman and I just can't let comments like that go without, you know, doing one better.

Yes, I'm in desperate need of psychiatric help.

Yes I'm obsessed with squirrels. But that's only because of my dogs.

More on The Squirrels

Ahhhhh my minions. You have all been telling me what squirrels are doing to your lives. Well, I think we all have seen their silly goings on. Leaving stashes of strange things in place of our usual plants or in my case this weekend I found multiple stashes.

Yes!!! Multiple stashes of pecans in empty flower pots that I had lying on their sides so the rain water would not collect in them. There were little dried leaf nests inside and at least half a dozen pecans hiding in the nests.

If I hadn't decided to clean the courtyard of all our neighbors leaves, which was nearly half a foot deep in places, I tried to get David to go out and clean it by making subtle hints at all the leaves. But tha'ts like watching paint dry.

So I went out before the sun broke through the clouds and started cleaning the place up. I had moved the humongous planting cart David made for me this past spring over by the back fence, sucker liked to weigh 5 tons. Moving it was pure torturer, but I got it done.

Then I went back to sweep leaves into a pile but there were piles of neatly hidden pecans nestled in leafy nests. As I moved other things I found all their nests all over the place. So now I have made the back courtyard accessible to the puppies too. Everyplace a squirrel nest could pop up, the puppies can also get to. That should keep the little buggers out of there.

I also told the woman next door that there may be squirrels getting into her attic crawl space. I noticed that they come and go from her front eaves over her front porch. I don't know if she will do anything about it cause she sneered at me when I told her. So be it. I was just trying to help.

Well after all my hard work with the courtyard, David came from picking up leaves from the front yard, noticed I was doing all this and said  " Don't overdo it woman!"

Say What!?? Don't over do! Heck, ( I think you all noticed that I have cleaned up my language), if I don't do it, I'll be watching leaves pile up to the windows. ahahahhaaa "Don't over do it!!!" I was ready to smack him for that remark.

Anywho, I feel a bit sore but none to wear. I sort of feel great to tell you the truth. The courtyard is pretty and clean again. The squirrels are really upset this morning. Yes my minions I can hear them cussing me out as I write this post. The puppies are going crazy whining that they need to go out and hunt squirrels. But I think instead I'll just open the blinds and watch as the squirrels are hunting for their stashes of nonexistent nuts. BWAAAHAHAHHAHAHAHhahahahahahahhahahahhahahahahahahhahahaaaa!!!!

Pecans, Pecans Everywhere And The Squirrels Are Going Mad !

It's crazy outside right now. Why you may ask, my minions? Well tis the season for pecans to fall and drive the squirrels crazy. Yeppers!! The wind is blowing hard, knocking the pecans off the trees in our yard and the poor little fuzzies are running around trying to get as many pecans as they can before they all get picked up by the humans.

My puppies don't help in the matter either. They are constantly chasing the squirrels and keeping them from their gathering. I'm a bad person for letting the dogs out all day. I wonder what happens if they don't meet their quota?  Do they get yelled at by Mrs. Squirrel?

Mrs. Squirrel: What are you doing, you lazy good for nothing!?!!
Mr. Squirrel:  But the dogs, my love.
Mrs. Squirrel: Dogs, Shmogs !!!  Get busy and get to gatherin those nuts. We don't have all autumn, ya know!! Mother told me not to marry you!!  I should have listened to her and married that squirrel down the street!!

Great Genes

I was laughing this morning when I heard the news. Ozzy Osbourne had some of his blood sent off to a lab in New Jersey to be analyzed. Yep they want to see what makes the Oz tick.

Seem they found out a few things about him. He has an "unusual variant" in his genes. Yes they unlocked his genetic code. It has helped him break down the alcohol and drugs that he has put into his system over the years. But there is one thing he can't do.

It turns our that he is not only related to The Neanderthals, but also a distant relative of outlaw Jesse James, the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II and King George I.  He is said to also have  ancient Roman ancestors who were killed in Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. 

Osbourne said: “That means I’m also probably related to some of the survivors, which makes a lot of sense.
“If any of the Roman Osbournes drank nearly as much as I used to, they wouldn’t have even felt the lava. They could have just walked it off.” 

So fortunately he did not sell his soul to the Devil as many Christians think. Even though he is called the Prince of Darkness. He just has great genes. So with this I leave you my minions and ye olde headbangers like me with The Oz.

ET Take Me With You!!!

Hey, did you hear the great news this morning? We don't have to finish packing for the end of the world. Yeppers!! It's not going to end on Dec 12, 2012 like they said it would.

Nope, seems that the scientists were wrong in their evaluation of the Mayan Calender. Like maybe 50 to 100 years, so they say. Personally I think it all ended on Dec 31, 1979 when disco died.

So my thoughts are. If the world isn't going to end in a couple of years like we thought ... then why are we seeing so many UFO sightings.

I mean, is this all a ploy by the aliens to keep us from going with them? They are finished fiddling around with us and don't want us to pack up the whole planet and take it with us.

Like they don't want us cause we're Intergalactic Trailer Trash?

" Oh man, there goes the galaxy!"

" NO! you cannot put that deer head on the front of my space ship!!"

Holy Guacamole I Got Three In One Shot

Wow I was informed by Willow at Confessions of a Country Witch that she gave me 3, count em THREE awards in one. WOW!!!  You really, really like me LOTS!!  ahahahahahaaaa!!!
With this comes some hefty stuff that I gotta do.

First, I have to thank the one that gave me the awards. Thank you so much Willow Silverhorse.  I love awards. Yeppers, I really do.

Second, I have to tell 7 lies things about myself, but I'm cutting it down to 3 maybe 4.
* I love making lists of things I need to do. Then I don't follow through. Strange I know, but then I'm also certifiably crazy too. Yeppers I'm on a day pass.
* I'm a gadget fanatic. I love gadgets, be it electronic or kitchen, if it's a gadget then it has my full attention.
* I hated writing when I was in school. But now I just can't stop.
* I'm a pen clepto. I steal pens but they have to be unique in some way. But bright, shiny, and red will suffice.

Okay now Willow has it that I need to pass these awards to 15 other new or used and abused bloggers. That's a bit much. If I send this out to 15 bloggers then who will they send it to? SO. I am cutting this down to 3 maybe 4 bloggers.
* Vanessa over at Fanciful Twist has a delightful blog with great photos. The woman was born in the wrong era.
* Whisperingwriter at Airing My Dirty Laundry One Sock At a Time I love when she writes with pictures of her precious little girl, Natalie. You rock SITstah.
*Kalynn at Kacklin' with Kalynn and her haunted car trunk.
* Natalee at Raising Normal Kids she's another SITstah that makes me laugh.
Everyone on my hit list has been contacted. So pass it on to those that deserve to be abused or whatever.

Where In The World Is Leeanna

Seguin Dam, Guadalupe River
Everyone, Well not everyone, more like a few of you who don't really know me, have been wondering where in the hell do I live. Well Texas of coarse.
  But where??? Oh hell It's in Seguin Texas my dear minions. Seguin is pronounced Sah-geen. The town used to be called Walnut Springs but they changed it to Seguin in honor of Col. Juan Seguin the man who ran for help for the Alamo. Seguin is one of the oldest towns, settled in 1838 by Frontier Rangers. It's a small town of about 21,000 give or take a few with the Guadalupe river running through it. We are also a college town for Texas Lutheran Univ. We are the County seat for Guadalupe county and just outside of San Antonio. We are just off I-10 highway between San Antonio and Houston.
David and I are crazy weekenders that love to ride around, sometimes with the dogs. Our favorite haunts are New Braunfels which is a small German styled town, also I used to work there at their hospital. NB is about 13 miles from us. San Marcos is a small college town. Home of Southwest College. We can take the scenic route up there through the Hill Country. It's so darned pretty. Then we also like to take the real country road from San Marcos to Luling. It's home of the Luling sausages and Watermelon Thump. They say it smells of money... it's just the oil wells pumping. Nasty smell!!
So now you know where I live. Are ya happy now? ;P
