My life is just perfect

Life is Good. Just finished dinner, sitting in the sunroom, watching the sunset. My wine glass still half full(not for long though). What could be more perfect? How about if my neighbors could get their two yappy dogs to shut the fuck up? Yeah, that would be perfect.

Did I mention that my neighbors are my parents? Yep, they liked the neighborhood so much, that they bought the lot next to us and had a house built. Perfect.

Random Tuesday Thoughts

I am afraid of turning into my mother. I love her, but the older she gets the crazier she gets.

Sara Palin is an embarrassment. Her abrupt exit from office, and the rambling speech did not shine a positive light on women in politics.

In the past few years I have had trouble sleeping. I went to the doctor for a checkup today and happened to mention my sleep issues. Now I have a prescription for Ambien. I can't wait till it's bedtime just so I can see if it works. I am a little concerned about the side effects though, especially drowsiness AND diarrhea. Not a good combination.

Infomercials are always more appealing at 4am. I wonder how many Ped-Eggs, and Snuggies were bought between the hours of 1 and 5 am. Thankfully, I don't keep credit cards near the bed and I'm too damned lazy to get up and get them.

My husband is a better driver than I am. I think the reason for this is all the helpful pointers I give him while he drives. That must be it.

It's Tuesday, so click the link below and visit Keely, the Um Mom. She rocks.

OMG,what is that thing?

As I was reading my DIL's post ( http://piecemealpeople.blogspot.com/ ) this morning about a disgusting, gigantic, mutant bug that was lurking on her front porch last night, I was reminded of something that happened here a few weeks ago.



As I mentioned, we have my daughter's dog for a few months. When John took her outside to do her thing, look what she found in the grass. I think it is a crayfish. Yep its a shitty picture, but it was moving, and I had no interest in being close to it any longer than it took to get this one picture.


How the hell did it get in my yard? We are about 2 blocks from the river, so it probably came from there. I hope it made the journey alone.

We are keeping my daughter's dog until August 14th. Then, we get to put her on a plane and ship her to Hawaii to be with my daughter and her family. The dog seems to enjoy not having to compete with the kids for attention. I think that the dog wants to stay here, but I won't tell my daughter.
The aforementioned dog, while very smart and sweet,(to those she loves) might be able to win the world's ugliest dog contest.

Michael Jackson - I don't get it, I've seen interviews over the years with Michael where he talks about the abuse he suffered as a child. So why did he leave his children in the care of his Mother??? I understand his father was the alleged abuser but, where the hell was his mother when this was happening?

I recently read an online article about an 18 yo. male in Florida the Police suspect of killing hundreds of cats. The article talks about the sadistic way theses cats were killed and referred to this guy as a 'serial cat killer'. If he is convicted of these crimes he could face 158 years in prison. REALLY? Is cat killing worse than human killing ???

I love Summer. Even when the weather is hot and sticky, I still love it. It reminds me of my childhood.
I wish I lived closer to my grandchildren.
My Husband and I stayed up until 2am catching up on Harper's Island( I just love comcast on-demand). Can't wait until the 2 hour conclusion on Saturday!
