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.

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.

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.

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!!!!
