Lots o shit swirling around in the toilet bowl that is my brain. Let's capture some of it here.
Went to a wedding yesterday (spouse's second cousin). Good food, good company, but fucking tiny cosmos! I would have needed 20 just to generate a good buzz! But I lifted my single drink (I was driving) to all my boyfriends everywhere!
As I predicted, my baseball season is over; I am now hibernating til 2/12/13 (pitchers and catchers [HA!] report to Clearwater FL).
It's turning colder this week; the trees are also turning red and yellow and orange. Grass needs another mowing though...
I turned the heat on at home last evening; damp and chilly + asthma = bad recipe.
I am still voting for Barack Obama because he loves Big Bird. And he doesn't think that I, part of the 47%, am dirt under his feet.
Why do I look so fabulous at 58, whilst others in my age bracket look 70 or more?
I finally found a brand of Greek yogurt I like!
I lost 5 pounds last month!
There is a pork roast in the slow cooker right now; it's been braising since 7a in teriyake sauce. My house smells fantastic!
Next on the agenda - make a loaf of beer bread to go with said pork roast for dinner. Wine is already chilling in the fridge.
Spouse and I have the week off from work this week. Unfortunately, we can't afford to go anywhere; $3900 for chimney repairs and $1500 in car repairs ate our travel budget. BUT the house and cars are in great shape for winter!
There seem to be fewer grocery coupons out there for me to use. But then again, I tend to buy store/generic brands whenever possible.
I need a haircut.
I'm going to call my trash disposal company to see if they will give me a second recycle container on wheels. I fill up the container I already have way too soon; I need more space for my green initiatives, dammit! In my 'hood, trash/recycling is picked up on Tuesdays. ETA: I can have another recycle container for $5/month more. WOO HOO!
"Wooking par nub, in all de wong pwaces..."
We have a white squirrel on our property, a mutant, an albino. I rejoice in his difference!
The birds have left for the winter already; no morning songs to greet me.
Have you seen the video "Gangnam Style"? Korean rapper PSY is the artist. According to my company's Korean sales rep, Gangnam is a rich town, much like our Beverly Hills; full of phony poseurs and fronters. Hey, Mittens - could this be your campaign theme song?
I still haven't finished reading the Sunday newspaper yet; however, I DID start a load of laundry!
Have a good week, boyfriends!
