What a week!

My boss was out of town all week and had left me a bunch of stuff to keep me busy. I finished it all by Wednesday at about 2PM! I played on the internet some, visited the people in the offices around me, organized my desk and some file cabinets, twiddled my thumbs a bit and started digging around for things to do! Overall it was a pretty productive week I think.

I have news overload though :( If there wasn't any bad news I don't think there would be any news at all!

I have been having some pretty odd dreams this week. I wake up remembering them and thinking how crazy am I and wonder about myself and by the time I'm stepping into the shower they are gone. Then during the day I remember whisps of them-a feeling, a face or a place in the dream and it is gone again. I had thought about starting a dream diary, just jotting down a few parts of the dream to jog my memory later but with the way I feel about them when I wake up I'm wondering if I should just let them stay forgotten!

There is probably a reason why the memories of dreams are stored in our short term memory!

I'm excited about next week, I'll have more money in my grubby hands than I have had in a loooong time-I'm going shopping! First I'm getting the necessities first-new tires for my car, new eye-glasses, catch up on some bills, a few things around the house that we have been needing for awhile-and then I'm going to splurge a bit and put the rest in savings.

My resident barn swallows have hatched their babies! I see a bunch of cheeping beaks and sparsely feathered heads stick up! I worry about them so much at this stage since they are so vulnerable! It looks like there are 5-6 in that small nest and I worry they are going to fall out. When I came home for lunch today there was about 15 other birds all gathered on the railing of the porch and I was worried they were messing with the babies-I ran up and shooed them off. Here is a picture I took-they let me get so close-within 2-3 feet and pay me no mind!



I hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Can you hear me now??


I entered a sweepstakes online Monday from a radio station out of L.A. They take random entrants and call them to be the people that play in the on-air games for the next day.

I got a call from them about 30 minutes after I entered asking me if I wanted to have a call the next day to play a game on-air. I was so excited and she told me that it would be between 4-5:30.
I was ready to win!

The next day rolls around. 4:00 rolls around and right at 4:05 I get a call and I'm on the air ready to play "Beat the band" and win a prize. We have some fun banter on-air where the host tells me that he is from the city I am in and that we would be right back after a word from our sponsors. So he comes back on the phone while we are waiting, then my cell phone crackles. Can you hear me now???? Then he says get ready, 10 seco......and my freakin' cell phone drops the call :O

I didn't expect a call back, I'm sure they just go down the list to the next caller. I hope they won a good prize! I had to laugh about it, otherwise I'd still be sulking!

I hope that everyone has a great weekend :)

eBay and an IV

Tuesday I went in for a procedure/operation and had my first IV. Actually I had two. I happened to get someone that was new that couldn't get it right the first time. It wasn't too bad. When the good stuff was put in I remember telling the nurse I'm starting to feel something...then the next thing I know I'm waking up talking to Rick and telling the nurses how wonderful they are and shaking the Dr.'s hand thanking him profusely. Then I go in and out again and remember waking up in the car on the way home.

I get home at 10 something and fall asleep until 5:30! Wednesday I needed the hydrocodone and zonked out on it most of the day. I could easily get addicted to these-they make me feel so good! I'll have to flush the rest after I get over the pain!

I have had a pretty good week so far thanks to the happy pills! I sold my first item on eBay and got 3 times the amount I was expecting so that was a nice surprise. Now I am looking around the house for what to sell next while Rick hides stuff! He is not a pack rat per se, but doesn't like to part with things.

I have this huge ornamental mahogany birdcage that sits in our living room gathering dust. I found one identical for sale on eBay for $2500! I am thinking about selling it, maybe not for that much but Rick is putting up a fight. I made a deal that if he will dust it, I wont sell it. It takes forever to dust it as it has lots of small parts and pieces.

I hope everyone has a great weekend :)
