Just To Let You All Know, My Minions

I found out my time I will be going to surgery on Monday morning. It's at 7am, so don't expect any posts from me for a while. i should be out of the hospital on Thursday. After that who the hell knows what will happen.

I do know I will have physical therapy almost every day. As I progress in my therapy, that will taper off and I will be back in the pool again. Well, unless the doctor sees me and decides to replace the other knee, hopefully before December starts.

SO ... just sayin, I won't be around for a week maybe two. But to keep you happy here are some cartoons I found.

"Mattel, what are you doing to our little girls? You've turned Barbie into a  ... a ... prostitute!!!"

I like that ... evil grin. BWAAAHAAhahhahahahahahahahahahaaaaa!!

It's A Drug !!

I have a deep dark confession and I gotta come clean. It's a bad monkey on my back and I can't shake it off. I've tried walking away but I always come back to it. I just can't do without it. I go through withdraws like nobody ever has.

Yeah I'm hooked and I'm proud of it!. I play it when I get any free time. When I'm not blogging, when I'm cooking, cleaning house, whatever, whenever. I've made it to level 4-2!! BWAAhahahahahaaahahaaaa!!!  What is it you may ask. It's... it's.......

I am so fucking hooked on this shit. It's funny as hell too. They have Zombies attacking in ducky inner tubes in the water. some in scuba gear. They have Zombies floating with a balloon tied around their waist. There is the Zamboni and the bobsled team.  The old man Zombie that gets pissed and shakes his fist at you when you shoot his newspaper from his hands. It's so crazy that ya just gotta love it.

So what am I going to do in my free time in the hospital?  Go through withdraw again I guess. For three L O N G days.  *sigh*

Stressed To The Max

I got up early this morning and started things rolling before my surgery. I went to the Wellness Center at the hospital and had my account frozen for three months. That way I won't need to go through all the crazy shit all over again about being re-evaluated. I can unfreeze it when I'm ready to get back into the pool and on the bike.

Then I went to Hastings Books and bought some books for later. I then schlepped my ass all alone over to Wally World again.  I hate taking David cause he critiques my shopping choices. I picked up some new color  pencils cause mine are down to the ends. A new sketch pad and I also found three pair of  shoes that I couldn't do without. How is that possible you ask?  I'm a woman,  so fuck you, I need my shoes, so there David!

I bought some hand lotion and a small tube of toothpaste. So I need to put these things in my small bedside bag.  I'm going to have David bring it after the surgery is done and they put me in my room. I also have a bigger bag for David to bring the next day that will contain clothes for me to walk around in and go to physical therapy in. Like I said in an earlier post, I hate hospital gowns.

Our insurance will take care of all the things like a walker and shower chair when I get home. So we are good with that. We got the approval letter from the insurance company yesterday saying the surgery is a GO.

So now I wait. But in the meantime, I'm cleaning house, doing laundry and cooking and freezing extra meals for David for the next three weeks. Otherwise he'll hit the fast food joints and I want him to stay away from them as much as possible. WHEW!!! Mmkay so that's what I'm up to this week. Shit I need some drugs!!

The Crazy Witch's Daybook

My Mood :  Bummed out, if you need to know. I'm bored and there are so many things to do before next Monday.

Thank You's : I need to thank all my minions who have come in the past few weeks and posted comments on my blog entries. I am a bad blogger cause I don't come in enough to check on the comments y'all leave. So thank you for reading and leaving comments. Remember, not enough comments and the duck get's it!

What's going on: Mmkay this is really stupid. After David had the can lights put into the ceiling of the kitchen, he decided to put up the sheet rock. Now instead of doing the sheet rock on the  ceiling first. I could just smack the shit out of him.  Cause he's got the sheet rock up on the ceiling then he scratches his head like Bob from Prometheus and Bob. It's on Go check it out. It's stupid as hell, but it makes my brother laugh. "Uh, like where are the lights?"

So he starts knocking on the ceiling to find the cans. I just shake my head and tell him if he hurts himself before I go in for surgery next week, I'll kill him. He found them and cut the holes perfectly and put the LEDs back into the lamps. Looks really nice. Next weekend he wants to tape and float the walls and ceiling.

What I'm Reading: I finished the Chicagoland Vampire series and I'm waiting for book five to come out. Chloe Neill can write a pretty good mystery. Book five will be out Nov. 1st, can't wait! Neill also has another series she is starting. The Dark Elite series. I have books one and two on order from The prices are great.

The one I am reading now is Ghost Town by Rachel Caine. Ever since I found the first book by accident as a short story installment. I've been crazy about these kids. If you like Vampire books, then check the Morganville Vampire series out. It's very good also.

What is planned for today: I have a few things to get at Wally World today. I need to get a pair of regular slippers cause my Monty Python Killer Bunny slippers might scare the shit out of someone in the  hospital. Or someone might just walk off with em. I also have to buy a couple of pairs of shorts cause I can't go to Physical therapy in hospital gowns. Fucking gowns look dorky to begin with and I don't want the world to see my fat ass hanging out. I could end up on the internet. Shit!!

What's for din din: I'm making Taco  Casserole. Everyone has something else they call it. It's comfort food. I take a pound of ground beef and brown it in a skillet with half an onion diced fine. Add a heaping tablespoon of comino, teaspoon garlic salt, pepper. When the beef is browned really good pour in a packet of either taco seasoning or enchilada seasoning and mix completely add a can of diced tomatoes and let simmer for fifteen minutes.

While the beef mixture is simmering, open up two regular sized cans of enchilada sauce. I go with the mild. David hates hot stuff. get a baking dish with a cover that is the size you want to make this in. I use my 10X10inch baking dish with clear glass top. Open up one of the cans of enchilada sauce and pour a bit of it on the bottom of the baking dish. Just enough to cover the bottom. This is going to be like making lasagna.

On top of the sauce, layer the dish with corn tortillas, then spoon on the beef mixture enough to make a thin layer. Pour sauce over this and add shredded Jack cheese. I also add mozzarella shredded up. Layer corn tortillas, then beef, then sauce, then cheese. If you have a 2 inch tall dish make the layers up to where there is a 1/2 inch of the dish side showing. Cover the top with the last of the cheese how ever the way you like it. This stuff will bubble over the sides and smoke out the kitchen if not careful. The picture above was the closest looking casserole like mine. Go Here to see the recipe for the pictured casserole if you like.

Cover the dish and put it in a hot 350 degree oven with a cookie sheet on the rack below the dish. Bake for 20 minutes then take the cover off the dish and raise the heat to 400 to brown the cheese. Then take it out and slice it into squares or whatever. Mine usually yields 6 slices. So I can put the 4 leftover slices in containers and David can get his TexMex fix later in the week with leftovers.

Knee Surgery Plus Videos

Last night I held the mother of all full moon rituals. I prayed and prayed that my surgery will go well and I will be able to return to work finally. I usually do my best work on a new moon but I figured what the hell I can try now cause the new moon wouldn't be until the 26th.

Surgery? Yeah, well I went to see a second opinion Orthopedic Doctor on Tuesday and he said the same thing. Even wanted his own set of x-rays done cause he didn't trust other doctors. Don't get me wrong, I found out this doctor is the best in his field. Also the hospital here in town is rated 5 Stars for their Orthopedic Department. San Antonio doesn't even have that. Fucking amazing, cause this is a small town I live in of 25K. Just a dent in SA's population.

Anywho, I have arthritis so fucking bad in both knees that he said they will have to be done. Meaning I am going to have the right knee fully replaced on the 24th of this month. Then we will see if the other one can do well with a Synvisc-One injection. These injections last for about 6 months. So you have to keep getting them until you finally decide to get the knee surgery. He said both are bone on bone so I might decide to get that one done in November.

I kinda know that my knees are needing this surgery. When you feel bone on bone rubbing when you walk and how much pain there is involved in something that we all take for granted, then you really want to get this taken care of.

So surgery is my only way out  now. I have some grizzly vids of a total knee replacement surgery below. There are 10 videos all in order from FROSTERBOY88 on They are very detailed and if you have a weak stomach I would advise you to not watch them. I think they are very good.

Decorating And Other Strange Shit

I finally crawled out of my deep dark funk of a depression this weekend. David gave me a bag of  my favorite Lindt Chocolates. Boy did I scarf them baby's up fast. So now I feel wonderful and ready to kick ass and take names.

Yesterday I was looking through all the huge plastic containers of great decorations I was going to put up this year. WOW!!! Did I accumulate a butt load of fabulous shit there. Un problema y'all. David moved all the crap from the kitchen cabinets into the living room and dining room. There is no fucking place for my decorations with this shit being all over the place. I'll have to wait until next year I guess.

Anywho, I woke up this morning and there is this strange man in my kitchen drilling holes in my kitchen ceiling. David surprised me with Can lights. The very same ones he showed me yesterday when he schlepped me through the rain to Home Desperate. I showed him the LED lights I wanted in them and he got those too. He was reading the LED box and saw I was right about saving energy on the light bill. It would cost us only $1.75 a year in power. David took a couple of days off cause Tuesday is his B-day. So today I have to go get a card for him and his favorite chocolate covered cherries.

So he was there helping the guy put in Can lights. Yippy, two fucking days of Jerry Springer to hear from the bedroom cause there is no place to sit in the living room. Does this sound like I'm either going to hit that deep dark funk called depression again? Or will I try looking for a place to hide David's body. I need to find a book on on how to get rid of evidence and bodies. BWAAAahahahahahaaaahahaaaa!!!

Just A Quick Note

My puppies are the ones that keep me sane most of the time. David is an instigator and causes trouble. He's sweet and lovable but a royal pain in the ass. But last night I lost it. I was yelling at the puppies like they were my kids and they hid behind David for safety. I felt like crying but it was so fucking funny.

I took a shower early and went into the bedroom and watched whatever I could find. Lucy, my sweet babygirl snuck into the bedroom and cuddled with me like ... "I'm sorry momma." It was killer sweet. I kind of needed some me time and last night was it. But I still expect some chocolate today or David is a dead mutherfucker for sure.

I Need Chocolate

When I started out this year, I picked a word to live by for the whole year. Something that I could look on and say to myself am I living up to that word. It was Strength.


The quality or state of being strong
Mental power, firmness or courage
Power of resisting force, strain
Effective force or power

I am really wondering if I'll make it through this year. Yes my dear minions, I am in a deep dark funk right now. Yeppers, I am totally fucking depressed beyond belief. And I need chocolate!!!! Lots and lots of it!!! Or I'm gonna off myself!!

I was so depressed that I thought of downing all my meds at once. But then I thought I'd just have to go get refills so that was not happening. Besides I hate the whole fucking idea of throwing up. Then I thought of breaking open one of those cheapo razors and slashing my wrists, but I hate pain and I don't have a bath tub to make one of those movie scenes with the bitch in the water with blood on the walls and the water is pink from all the blood. Meh.

There was the thought of driving over a cliff. Ain't no fucking cliffs out here. Just a bunch of hills. Yeah!!! I'm gonna fucking off myself over the hill. Shit! There was the thought of standing in front of a train. They are never on time and you have to wait for days sometimes before one comes through town. By then I'll have had my chocolate and shit will be right with the world again.
