Just because I want to!



I don't think I posted this pic before. I know it's kind-of dark, but hey- it's Joe!!

Well, I've gone and done it! I was tweaking this darn thing, and screwed it up somehow. I noticed this morning that my archives were not there, so I added them. Now my little song lyrics are not showing at the bottom!! It keeps saying errors on page, but all I did was change the lyrics. So now I have given myself a project for today- fix the flippin' blog! Oh well, such is life.

Not only that, but I have to go shopping. My wedding anniversary is tomorrow, and I have to at least get him a card! Mom's coming over to drive me around, so maybe she'll have some ideas. And I have to get a belt for the vacuum. Why is it- I finally manage to get someone to help me with the cleaning around here, and the darn thing breaks 1/2 the way through!! I'm really beginning to think that I pissed off a MAJOR god in another life!!

Well, I had more to say, but now I've forgotten what it is!? Jeez, I know it's not the medication lol! Well, off to check on you all. Perhaps I'll remember what I was going to say, and be back later!
Peace and Love, KC

I need your help

Over nothing major, mind. I got this guy while up in Virginia ( at Busch Gardens) . And he's found his home on my computer desk. Now, I have many of these guys/gals floating around my house. And I will probably post pics of them as well here and there. But he's been here for over a month, and I can't think of a name for him. Any ideas???????



Well, I've been doing some reading, and watching the news. Katrina really wiped out the Gulf Coast, didn't she? Sad, truly sad. Blessings on all who live down/over there. It's gonna take a long time to get things back to anywhere near normal. And to think that Jon and I were contemplating going there next spring on vacation. I guess that will be put on hold for a while.

I had Regis and Kelly on in the background this morning, and they're voting on favorite musical guest. Needless to say, DL is not one of the nominees. I was thinking on how that sucked, until I realized that with the "goof-up's" Regis made in plugging the new CD, they probably wouldn't want that repeated on national TV. But it still stinks, IMVHO!

Oh yea, and one more thing before I get off this thing for awhile. I tried this morning to "personalize" my profile on "myspace". And I've managed to change the basic color scheme, I can't seem to figure out how to do anything else. Like put goofy stuff on ( My banners, pics, etc.) Or get rid of some of the "un-needed " sections. So any of you that know- buy me a clue please!!!!

I'll be back later, I've got some laundry to do. Oh, and Tig? Good luck on your trip sweetie! My girls are still talking about our "marathon" phone call!!!!
Peace and Love to all! KC

**edit by me!***


P.S.- STEPH- YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!! ( finally checked my mailbox)

WHY?

Is it that my kids have been in school for 2 weeks, and already they have a day off? A "teacher in-school day"?? Not to mention, they have next monday off as well. Sheesh- they have the life, don't they?

I wanted to give you all something special this morning. Something to wake you up, so to speak. I know I've mentioned to you all about an author/book series I've been hooked on since last fall. Well, follow this link: ( Caution, may cause hot flashes, heart flutterings, and a sudden need for a cold shower!) http://www.kinleymacgregor.com/were/news.htm Now, these guys will DEFinately get the blood flowing on a bad morning! Seriously, I just love these books. They are a combination of romance, action, mythology, and FUN! Not like Anne Rice- she's a little too depressing and graphic for me. These books will make you laugh out loud. I can't begin to tell you how many times the kids have shook their heads at me, when I come out with a laugh or comment while reading. You really feel like your right there, in the thick of the story. That's rare in this day and age of "throw-away"fiction. Just wanted to share!

I have been hooked on the weather channel, and MSNBC since yesterday, hoping that New Orleans ( hell, the whole Gulf Coast!) makes it through Katrina. It's a horrible situation down there, and all I can think of is all those people that couldn't get out. My thoughts are with all of them. I've walked a mile in those shoes, and it ain't pretty. One thing though- Do any of you know when Rhonda was scheduled to be back in Little Rock? She may have problems getting home, with the weather headed her way! I'll feel a lot better when I see she's home safe and sound. Not a good way to end what I'm sure was a terrific week for her huh?

I have a somewhat busy day today. I am meeting Kat somewhere this morning. She's working in my neck of the woods today, and I said we could meet for lunch or something. We didn't get the chance to talk last time I saw her ( Kissimmee concert) as Devon was with me, and I didn't want to leave her alone too long. And I promise Tig I'd give her a call today. She leaves to see her grandbaby Weds., and this will be the last time we can talk for a while.

Oh, and I found out last nite that my Mom has a new puppy! A little, 9 week old beagle! Her name is Maggie, and she's supposedly really cute! I can't imagine it though- my 75 year old mother with a puppy! Should be interesting- to say the least. And I know when Becky finds out, she's gonna be pestering me about getting one too. And I just can't see another body fitting in this house, no matter how small it may be. Not to mention the mess. That's all I need, more to clean right?! Well, we'll see. Maybe just playing with Mom's new dog will keep Becky out of my hair for a while ( RIIIIGGGGHHHHT! KC, keep dreaming!)

I have some stuff to do, so I'd better get off this thing. Kimmie is begging me for breakfast, and if I don't put Andy's clothes in the dryer, the poor boy will have to go "commando" to his friend's house. I think he's a bit young for that yet! Have a great day all!
Peace and Love, KC

Pray

For those who live in Louisiana, and Alabama. Especially those in New Orleans. Because if Katrina hits that city dead-on, or worse- just right of the city- I don't think there will be a New Orleans. Think Pompey, or better yet- Atlantis. 160 SUSTAINED winds, gusts even stronger, and a storm surge of 15-20 ft. That means a wall of water twice the height of all those levee's they built after the last hurricane. And don't forget that the city itself is 6 - 10 ft. BELOW sea level!!
I just hope everyone is taking this seriously, and getting the heck out of harms way!

May the gods have mercy on them all - I don't think Katrina will!



( I'll be back later- I just wanted to get that off my chest!)

Friday!!!!!

And another week, shot to hell.
Well, that's how I feel. I know, at least I don't have to work right now. But I'd give my eye teeth to be able to do something ( besides sit here typing) Well, actually, I did get a few things done yesterday. While talking to Tig on the phone, I dusted and cleaned up my bedroom ( NO- I didn't do anything strenuous, just sorted out clutter and such) And filed away a bunch of paperwork that had been sitting on the computer desk forever. I also called my disability, and found out they have cleared me to be off until Sept. 28! WOW! I figured 2 weeks tops. But the nurse I talked to ( who approves this stuff) said they wanted to give me enough time to be TOTALLY healed, before returning to work. She said I'd been through enough already, and I deserved to heal fully at this point. Which in this day where insurance companies are hell-bent on cutting corners, is pretty impressive.

Speaking of my company- I've seen Walgreens getting "a few" lobbed at them by my fellow bloggers about the holiday stuff out so early. Which I can totally understand. Believe me when I tell you all that we employees hate putting that stuff out early, just as much as you all hate seeing it! But the truth of the matter is- there is no store that I've ever been in ( and I've been in MANY after 23 years lol!) that has a big enough stockroom to hold all the Halloween/Christmas stuff as it rolls in. Hell, we have to get at least one trailer ( sometimes 2!) for storage behind the store. 100 boxes of Christmas wrap, and all the artificial trees we get in fill a whole truck trailer! And that does not count all the other B.S. for the holidays! Since all the candy HAS to be kept inside ( for obvious reasons- this is Fla, after all!) and we get over 100 cases of that between the two holidays, something has to give. But even we know it sucks! So there!

Since it's Friday, I'll leave you all with a couple of funnies. The first one's from Janine:



The Rooster Race
A farmer goes out one day and buys a brand new stud rooster for
his chicken coop. The new rooster struts over to the old rooster and says,
"OK old fart, time for you to retire."
The old rooster replies, "Come on, surely you cannot handle ALL
of these chickens. Look what it has done to me. Can't you just let me have
the two old hens over in the corner?"

The young rooster says, "Beat it: You are washed up and I am
taking over"

The old rooster says, "I tell you what, young stud. I will race
you around the farmhouse. Whoever wins gets the exclusive domain over the
entire chicken coop."


The young rooster laughs. "You know you don't stand a chance old
man. So, just to be fair I will give you a head start."
The old rooster takes off running. About 15 seconds later the
young rooster takes off running after him. They round the front porch of the
farmhouse and the young rooster has closed the gap. He is already about
5 inches behind the old rooster and gaining fast.


The farmer, meanwhile, is sitting in his usual spot on the front
porch when he sees the roosters running by. He grabs his shotgun and -
BOOM - He blows the young rooster to bits.
The farmer sadly shakes his head and says, "Dammit... third gay
rooster I bought this month."

Moral of this story.... Don't mess with the OLD FARTS - age and
treachery will always overcome youth and skill!


And the second from a co-worker........................

Which Tarot Card are you? (GIRLS) GREAT ANIME PICS!
brought to you by Quizilla

( Wow! Sometimes, these quizzes truly scare me!!)

Anyway- Saw Dr. B yesterday, and he said the infection is pretty much gone away! And since I don't have to go back to see him until Sept. 2nd, that means I won't have to worry about having my anniversary off! And I'm also allowed to drive "a little", like just down to the store or such ( no long trips though). He said he didn't want me to ruin his "wonderful work" lol! And it looks as though I will probably not be back to work until mid- Sept. But that's ok, cause this is probably the last break I'll have before the new year.

**warning- parental brag alert*****
Andy brought home a letter from school yesterday. It seems that he did so well on his FCAT's last year, he's getting an award! ( FCATS- for those of you not in fl, are the state tests that are part of the whole Bush " no child left behind"/ school improvement tests) You know, the ones where they "grade" the schools? Anywho, he did get really good grades on them, so I wasn't surprised. But he thought he'd gotten into some kind of trouble I think, cause he handed me that envelope like I was going to be angry!? The ceremony is next Weds. morning, so I should be able to go.

Oh, and Dr. said I can drive "a little" now. No long trips, but I can at least run down to the corner store and such if needed. THANK GOODNESS! Being caged in the house would be fine if I were allowed to DO something! But just to sit here, when I can see a million chores that have to be done is just torture! I know- I'm not going to take the chance of ripping a stitch or anything, but you all know what I mean right? I can't even vacuum the carpet ( and with 3 kids and a dog, that needs to be done frequently!) because of the surgery. That's why I've been spending a lot of time on this darn thing. Sitting here in the corner of my bedroom, I can't see the rest of the mess in the house lol!

Oh and about "Katrina"- I'm not worried in the least. She looks like she's going to go WAY south of me ( Tig is closer by far!) so all we should get is some rain. So don't worry, OK?! I'm just going to make sure nothing is outside "loose" that could cause problems if the winds pick up a bit. And maybe I can get one of the kids to vacuum or something this afternoon. If I could get Andy to clean the bathroom- anything is possible!

Have a great day all, I'll be around ;-)
Peace and Love, KC

P.S.- Holy Heck! I don't know what happened to that first paragraph, but it's fixed now!!!
And I just got off the phone with Tig, and she and her family are ready for the storm as well. She's about 1/2 hour north of where they say it's gonna land, but since it's a pretty minimal hurricane, they should be fine! Now if she can survive all her kids cooped up with her- hehehehe! ( Just teasing Tig!)

I told you all I was gonna "get" him!


The "arrangement" I had sent to Jon. I know- I'M BAAADDDD!!!

First, I just wanted to say that I'm feeling better. The infection that was trying to rear it's ugly head seems to have gone away ( or at least, as far as I can see). And while it will probably be another 2 weeks or so before I'm able to go back to work, I'm beginning to relax, and know that it's FINALLY over! A little pain I can deal with- and quite frankly, it's nice to go bra-less and not look obscene! But I still haven't been cleared to drive yet. So I'm stuck in the house until then. Which really bugs the shit out of me- I'm too used to being very independent! But if it keeps the peace around here, so be it.

A few random thoughts I've had lately:
1- Why is it that people feel the need to be nasty to each other? Especially in various on-line communities? I was brought up with the "do unto others....." Mentality. Yes, maybe that makes me just a little old fashioned. And I have to agree with the Wiccan believe in the "Law of 3". I think you get what you give in this life. If you want people to be nice to you- YOU have to be nice to them. Granted, that's not always the case- but most of the time it works. One point of this fact; I have a friend that I've met through the DL online community. She's always been nice, kind and a great person to me. She has mentioned in e-mails that she will not comment on my blog. Why?- Because last fall, she was erroneously lumped in with a group of people who were deemed "mentally unstable" ( I.E.- friends of "lepplady") Whether or not she is involved in those groups, I don't particularly care. She's a grown woman, and can see the "forest for the trees" all on her own. But because of one person's accusations ( who's no longer around our little group of blogs- btw) my friend will not post here. Because she doesn't want to cause ME any trouble. I think that says a lot- don't you?
Therefore I make this statement: If I've told you about this blog, you may comment here. I don't care if you are family ( Diane, Karen C., Rae, etc.) Friends ( Pete, Janine, Alex, Devon, Kat, Etc) or those who are my "on-line" family. This is my blog- And I make the rules! If any problems arise, it will be me that handles it. I personally don't think there will be, 'cause I don't "hang" with idiots. So comment away- this is one place you all know you can find me. And I love you all.

2- The whole new management thing on the "OF". Can you believe some people giving Mark the crap about not posting it? As if he can post anything without clearing it with the band!! JMHO here, but I thought right away that they probably don't want to say anything until the ink is dry on the contracts! And since that's not supposed to happen until September- why should anything be on the website? I mean, how many time have we seen "news" about the band on other sites- only to find out it was bullshit? Too many to count I think. And though I really have no feelings either pro-or-con Mark Senff ( other than the fact that he is a DL fan like the rest of us) I don't envy him his position! He's doing a job people. He's just the messenger- he doesn't make the rules! I've seen much worse webmasters out there- believe me!

3- I've noticed this year that our school system really should take a long, hard look at the time they start. Let me explain-
Elementary schools- 8am
High Schools- 8:15am
Middle Schools- 9:15am
which basically means that not only do Kim and Andy have to be at their bus stop 45 minutes before school starts ( and on campus and 7:30- 1/2 hour early!!) But when we go to E.S.T.- they will be standing there in the dark! Becky catches her bus around 7:40. Now this came about a few years ago, when they decided that the "older" kids needed more sleep in the morning- since many of them had jobs/activities in the evenings. Well, correct me if I'm wrong here-but 15 minutes extra sleep is supposed to help? I thought they meant that the H.S. students would be the late shift, middle up first, with the elementary in the middle ( did you all get that?) And it's really ridiculous that the youngest kids have to get to school so flippin' early, because the start times for high school are so close to theirs( the buses need to get to their next routes you see). They can't go into their classrooms until 7:50- which means they must sit OUTSIDE and wait for 20 minutes. In the heat/rain/whatever! I still have Kimmie in after-school care, because Andy is not old enough to be a babysitter yet ( not full time-anyway!) and Becky gets home about 1 hour after they do. I know a lot of parents who are pretty pissed about this "time/schedule" but the school board think they know everything, and the parents don't know squat! I may just have to go to one of their meetings- at least if I voice my opinion, I might feel better.
( can you see a pattern in these? Maybe I need some new drugs Huh?!)

Anyway, I guess that's all for now. Sorry about the "soap-box" rants, but it's been bugging me for some time now, and I just had to vent. I think I'll go cruise the net, and find something to lift my spirits. Have a great day all! Peace and Love, KC

Monday's suck!

And "murphy" is still in my face! I swear, I need either "Murphy-Raid", a good anti-evil spell, or a exorcism done, 'cause this crap is getting old!

My day:
Got up, got dressed and got the kids off to school. Noticed that there was dried blood/fluid on my nightshirt. Checked myself and realized that I was "leaking" around the stitched- ICK! I had to go see Dr. B that afternoon, so I figured I could deal until I got there. Sat down to check on you all and possibly post when the phone rang. It was Kimmie's school- she had Head Lice???!!!! SHIT! I haven't had to deal with that crap in years! So I had to drive down ( I'm NOT supposed to be driving-mind!) and pick her up. So that shot my morning's rest. She was fussing and generally pissy all morning. Mom was due to come over to take me to the dr.'s office around 11am, so I had to entertain her until then.
Went to the drug store, bought the lice shampoo,etc. and then to the Dr. He took a look and me and agreed that I shouldn't be "leaking" quite so much, and noticed that my "good" one ( you know, the one that was "brought up to snuff" as it were) was swollen and red on one side. Black and blue is ok- red is not! So then he "aspirated" the breast to see if it was an infection. I won't go into detail - suffice it to say that I asked for a stick or a bullet to bite on before he started lol! Thankfully, he said if it indeed IS becoming infected, it was at the early stages. So he upped my antibiotic dose, and told me to come back Weds. Sheesh!
Then back home and to Kimmie's problem. Now you all have seen her pictures, she has/had pretty long hair. Not anymore! I gave her a haircut that now has her hair just below her ears! I was not going to have to search through all that for lice, and she needed it trimed anyway. But I got a little over-zealous with the scissors. Everyone thinks it looks cute- except for Andy. He has forbidden me to every get near him with those scissors! And then we had to "treat" her hair. Now, she's one of those who HATES to have her hair washed. She hates water in her eyes at all! So try to picture hubby holding her, while I'm trying to put major chemicals in her hair, without getting it anywhere near her eyes- her kicking and screaming the whole time!!! I think I ripped a stitch in the process, but she would not be allowed back to school today if they found any of those little buggers alive on her head this morning. ( which they didn't- BTW!)
So finally, around 7 pm, I managed to sit down, with a heating pad ( i.e.- warm compress recommended by Dr. B for the afore mentioned "infection") and relax. I swear, I think I fell asleep about 5 minutes later.

So today is another day. Kimmie passed inspection, I have no appointments/chores/etc. on today's schedule. So I'm gonna veg! I'm gonna curl up with my heating pad, a good book, and maybe a DVD or two. Andy said he would clean the bathrooms for me today when he got home, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that one! But if "murphy" rears his ugly head today- Well, I'm just gonna have to call Mom. She's got Daddy's shotgun- AND I KNOW HOW TO USE IT!
( not really, but it feels good to say it ;-) )
You all try to have a good day. I'll be back later with some pictures, but I DO need to rest for a little while. Take care! Love and Peace, KC!

I'm OK

Though this will probably be a very short post. I just can't sit up without cushioning for too long, it pulls the stitches, and that hurts! But I thought you all would like to hear that I'm doing fine ( NO pun intended!). One more day of rest, and I should be able to sit up for more than 5 minutes.
Jon loved his gifts! I got pictures, but I can't bend over to "plug in" the camera. So if all else fails, I'll get Becky to do it for me tomorrow. And I wanted to wish the group in the "Canadian Lep Trek" a blast! I'll be waiting for the stories/pictures! Anyway- I need to eat something, take my pain meds, and go lay down. I'll be back tomorrow for sure! Thank you all for your good wishes and support! And thanks Kim- I got "the love"- right on time! ;-)

A little early...

But I'm sure you'll all need the laugh. With all the heat and such most of us have been dealing with, it's a wonder we are all still standing/sane! I'll be back as soon as I'm able.


OLD AGE

Two little old ladies were attending a rather long church service. One leaned over and whispered, "My butt is going to sleep." "I know," replied her companion, "I heard it snore three times.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.
--------------------------------------------
Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman: "And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?" the reporter asked. She simply replied, "No peer pressure."
------------------------------------------
The nice thing about being senile is you can hide your own Easter eggs.
------------------------------------------
Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, "How old was your husband?" "98," she replied. "Two years older than me." "So you're 96," the undertaker commented. She responded, "Hardly worth going home, is it?
----------------------------------------------
I've sure gotten old. I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees. Fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my driver's license.
----------------------------------------------
An elderly woman decided to prepare her will and told her preacher she had two final requests. First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes scattered over Wal-Mart "Wal-Mart?" the preacher exclaimed. "Why Wal-Mart?" "Then I'll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week."

I'll see you all soon. Cross your fingers for me! Love and Peace, KC

Up to my arse

In paperwork! God, I can't believe the amount of forms I have to fill out to get my diability started! I guess last fall, someone at work did some of this for me, but Jeez! 3 sets of forms for Walgreens, and 3 for Met-life ( who handle our claims). And I have to have all this faxed to them by tomorrow! Not to mention all the HIPAA forms sent to everyone! Good thing we have a fax machine at work, since I don't own one!

Then I'm meeting the BIL for lunch to give him the "supplies" for the party. I just hope he doesn't mind doing all that decorating. I really feel bad about that part. But hey, I get to have lunch at one of my favorite places- Meg O'Malleys. It's an Irish pub type place here in town. Love that food!

And after midnight tonight, I have to fast for surgery. Nothing to eat or drink at all. Not even a sip of water. Why is it that tomorrow I'll probably be hungier and thirstier than I would be on any other normal day? I have to be at the surgery center by 9am, even though my surgery is not scheduled until 12:30pm. I guess a few tests and such beforehand. Even though I've had them all before, back in January. ** Pauses for DL video on VN-1 classic**

Ok, Where was I? Oh yea, tomorrow. Anyway since I will probably be there all day, I will not be here to post my traditional "Friday Funny". So I will try to do so tonight, before bed. In the meantime, Be good! Oh, and play with "Trey" while I'm gone. He's the cute little bugger on my sidebar. If you stroke him right, he'll even growl for you! And for those of you that don't like the "music" player, just click on a link and it will stop, or hit the stop button on the player. I just like that song! Even if it's caused trouble in our peaceful world- right Rhonda?

have a good day, and I'll be back ( hopefully) later! Peace and Love, KC


P.S.- Just got back from lunch and such. I took my BIL to BJ's to get some stuff for the party. He bought $450 worth of meat and munchies!! I think he's planning on feeding the entire city Saturday! Well, better his wallet than mine!!!!

Hump Day!

And I fixed the song lyric thingy at the bottom of the page. 2 points to the first to "name that tune"! I'm going to try and change it more often, and I'll keep score. Maybe a prize at the end of the year? We'll see.
Anywho, I got Jon's gifts yesterday. 1 is practical- A "Food-saver" thing for the freezer. You all have seen the info-mercials right. You can re-pack foods in airtight baggies and such. I figure now that we have the freezer, he can buy the big "family" packs of stuff, break them down, and save money. And buy vegetables in season and freeze them. I'm really looking forward to that! Especially the stuff I grow. It always seems that all my broccoli, cabbage and stuff come to a head all at once, and we have to give some away- or it goes bad. This way- NO WASTE! Always a good thing.

The other is, well, a fun gift. Becky & I went down to our little local florist's shop. Now, she may be small- in a very unimpressive storefront in a tiny strip center- but she's just amazing! She's a little independent florist where you just tell her what you need, and she makes it up. I've sent Mom some of her stuff, and she's always thrilled ( and believe me- Mom is hard to impress!) So I told her to "go to town", gave her $100, and she's going to make up an "over the hill" basket for Jon. Complete with sympathy card and such. It will be delivered Sat. Morning. Since I won't be in any shape ( probably) to take him out to lunch or something, and the BIL has the party handled- I figured this was best. I just didn't see anything else either on-line or around the local stores. I also got one of the signs you put in the yard- "guess who's 50!", and Becky and I are going to make a banner ( hopefully!) to string across the garage that says " An Old Fart Lives Here!" Yes, I know I'm bad- but it's just too much fun! And you all know my sense of humor.
Jon's toast- plain and simple! hehehehehehe..............

Well, I have to go down to the license office. In all this birthday prep, I forgot that my car tag's also expire with my hubby's birthday. Can't be illegal, can we? They've moved the office to a part of town I'm not really familiar with, so wish me luck that I don't get lost. Or have to spend 3 hours in line. Which is entirely possible in this neck of the woods.

Oh, and I'm glad you all like my new "look"! I agree, it's MUCH easier on the eyes. And while I like the color pink- it was beginning to really bug me. Becky was starting on her "Pepto-bismol" rant about it, and I'd had enough anyway. So have a great day, and maybe I'll find the time today to get some interesting stuff for the sidebar. Yesterday was just to busy to bother.

Peace and Love, KC

Well..........

What do you think? I still have to do a few tweaks, but the main stuff is all here. And surprise- I changed templates, and my posts are back! I guess my old one had a "bug" in it! I'll replace the scrolling song lyrics today, but I want to change tunes. And some of the graphics in my sidebar. I got tired of the "same-old, same-old".
This one is called "Goddess of the Universe". I don't know why, but I just fell for it straight off. I kept trying to find a template based on the whole "sunshine" theme, but this one kept "calling" me. And Becky looked at it and went WOW! So that was it! And I've always liked mystical things. I collect Gargoyles, Fairies and such. So this fits my spirit side. Hopefully, it's also easier on the eyes.

Comments, complaints? Let 'em rip!

I have to go get Jon's birthday presents today, so I'll be back later to see what you think. And add some new stuff!
Peace and Love, KC

Hi Y'all!
Well, semi-busy day for me. I went to Dr. B's office today. Seems he needed more pictures ( UGH!) pre-surgery. Then he hit me with a question- " So, what do you want?" As in- how big do you want them???!! Holy heck! Imagine if you will, that little devil that sits on my shoulder screaming - "GO FOR IT!" Needless to say, I've decided to remain as I am..er..was. After all those years of having guys talking to my chest, the last thing I want to do is to give Pamela Anderson a run for her money!! Still, I know of some ( Ehem, Janine, Cough!) that would have killed to have been in my shoes just then! Still gives me the giggles though.....

Oh and I spent about 2 & 1/2 hours ( to the point my eyes got REALLY blurry!) looking at blog templates. I found one that I like, but I have a lot of work to do on it before it's ready to paste into here. I can't believe how much "stuff" I have to transfer over. I'll figure it out though, I've already tweaked a few things on it, and it's not messed up yet! I think you all will like it. The **only** thing about it is that it's not in keeping with my "sunshine" theme. But I just couldn't find any that did anyway. And truth is- neither does this one really. So I don't think that will matter much. I'm just tired of this one. The pink is beginning to bug my eyes.

Did you all read about DL's change in management? I can't believe they've finally gone and done it! They've been with Q-Prime for sooo long, I really didn't think they'd go and change at this point. Let's just hope that good things come from this. I'd hate to think that they are "out of the frying pan- and into the fire" with this move.

I also talked to my BIL today, he said that if I need, he'd make sure there was a room I could go crash in this weekend at the party. But I told him I'd have to let him know. I hate to miss the party, but I really don't want to get over there, only to make Jon come back home if I'm not up to it. He's really bummed about me not coming though. Which is kinda nice, you know?

Well, off to play with the new template. I'd like to get the thing done, now that I've decided. God, I'm not looking forward to figuring out the haloscan. That's the one thing I still have problems with. Wish me luck!
Peace and Love, KC

Sunday blues!

Well, not really. Except I went out yesterday and bought replacements for some of the herbs that have died/fried in the summer heat. As I started to dig through the main bed I use for herbs, the heat go to me, and I had to stop. I remember last fall, and what pushing myself too hard did, I will NOT go there again. But hey, I have all week- so all is not lost yet.
And another chore on my plate for this week is the garage. Although Jon and I cleaned it out last year, there's still quite a bit of junk that can be pitched out. I've always been a bit of a "pack-rat", and I'm trying to change that. Since I had to clear a spot out there for the freezer ( which Tom delivered this morning BTW) I found that there is a ton of other stuff out there that needs to go to the curb. It would be nice if there were enough room in our garage for at least 1 of our cars, in case of a storm. I mean, it IS a 2 car garage, after all!
The biggie for me this week is Andy's closet. It is a disaster of epic proportions! His idea of cleaning is to just throw everything in it! So I will go in there some day this week, and armed with large "lawn and leave" sized bags - and make Sherman's march to Atlanta seem like a Sunday stroll! Please have pity on my garbage-men this week! I may get my bill doubled for this!!!!
So that's about it in my world. I'm off to surf the net for some ideas for Jon's birthday. I need some really funny "turning 50" stuff to nail him with. And a trip to Spencer's gifts in the local mall. I saw some really good stuff in there not too long ago. I may not be able to make it to the big party, but I want to make sure it's a good time for him. Oh, I forgot to tell you all- my BIL- the one that lives on the river? His wife is my hubby's twin, and he's throwing a big birthday bash for the 2 of them. Unfortunately, with surgery the day before, the chances I'll be up to partying is slim to none. Had I thought about that when I agreed to the date........ Oh well, Jon and the kids will go have fun, and I'll get a full day of peace and rest. Not too bad a trade!
Well, it's thundering outside, so I'd better get off this thing. I'm going to try and get a couple of pictures of the lightening- wish me luck!
Love and Peace, KC

P.S.- WTF? I post this and then 1/2 my blog disappeared? And I post I had deleted yesterday is suddenly showing up again? Scroll down, my Friday post has nothing but the pics, and the font type is different! Strange doings on line today!! I'd better run some things, and make sure it's not "bugs" in my computer that doing in! ACK!

Sorry I've been MIA, But......
I haven't had a minute to spare this week. Between getting the kids back to school, and preparing for my leave, I've been lucky to get a decent night's sleep! But it's all over now, and I am officially OFF! So you all will "see" more of me for the next few weeks. That is, if I can type after the surgery. I guess if I don't have to move my arms too much, it shouldn't be too bad!
I'm hoping that when I get back to work, one of the "problems" we've been having will have been solved. I haven't mentioned it here, because I was kind-of hoping it would go away- but it's gotten really bad the last week, and well... You be the judge:

We have a new person working with us. Let's just call him "N". Now N is a recent immigrant from India. He supposedly has a degree in Pharmacy from there, and was hoping to become a pharmacist with Walgreens. Now, because of the differences between their schooling and ours, he has to have some additional schooling/training until he can go for his license. Here's the thing- If he is a trained pharmacist- I'll eat my shorts! He speaks English very well, but I don't think he reads it well at all! ( I 've mentioned this to various members of management) He doesn't understand what an " NDC" number is ( that' s what "identifies" a drug!) And has made more mistakes than I can ever recount for you all here. Several times he has sold Rx's to the WRONG PERSON! He's filled Rx's with the wrong drug, given wrong information OVER THE PHONE, and already has had 3 people write corporate about his "mistakes!" Yet, he remains. N has even complained that he should be making a pharmacist's ( or at least a intern's) salary!!??? And I seem to be the only female that he treats with any respect ( why? I don't know). He won't even talk to any of the other girls that work with me, but he is very polite to me. And he doesn't follow the "system" that we use at all! He just does what he wants- when he wants! But that would be nothing if he would just get things right! We are all just waiting for something really bad to happen- GOD FORBID! Tom said yesterday that he is so afraid that someone will get the wrong med, get sick or WORSE- And all that goes with that. But the people in upper-management are taking their sweet-arsed time doing anything about him! No other store would take him, and unfortunately for us ( Tom is just TOO nice sometimes!) we're stuck! So I hope that by the time I get back, N is no where to be found. Or at least at some school somewhere, learning what he needs to!

OK, off that rant for now. Speaking of Major Tom, he's coming by today or tomorrow, and bringing us a "present". A friend of mine is moving to Gainesville to go to school, and has a freezer chest she wants to get rid of. Well, she wanted to give it to me, but her parents said to give it to Tom ( He's done alot for her over the years) or sell it. He has one already. So she's giving it to him- And he's giving it to US! Woo Hoo! Now I'll finally be able to take advantage of sales, and stock up on stuff around here. Our freezer in the regular fridge is just not big enough. Jon is constantly stopping me from stocking up because of it. With 3 kids that eat like starving elephants, I like to buy stuff cheap when I can. And now I can- and save money in the process! I'm so glad! Now I have to go buy one of those "Food-saver" thingy's, so we can buy those big packages and split them. Anything to save money in this house is a GOOD THING!

Well, I can't think of anything else to write about, so just a couple of pics:


1981- Roommates and friends- Karen and Janine.
( Yes, I'm growing out one of those bad "80's perms" we all remember lol!)





2004- Friendships endure! Not bad for 23 years, Huh?! ( Love ya Girlfriend!)

Oh, and a funny!

CARDINAL RULE:Lawyers should never ask a witness a question if they aren't prepared for the answer.
In a trial, a Southern small town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grand motherly, elderly woman to the stand.
He approached her and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?"

She responded, "Why, yes I do know you, Mr. Williams.
I've know you since you were a young boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you."

The Lawyer was stunned!
Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?"

She again replied, "Why yes, I do.
I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone! and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him."

The defense attorney almost died.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench, and in a very quiet voice, said,

"If either of you bastards asks her if she knows me, I'll throw your sorry asses in jail for contempt."

Peace, Love and Giggles to you all! KC

Dad, Me & Mom- Graduation day!
( p.s.- you all now know where my grey hair comes from! He was only 50 in that shot!!!!)

Hi all! Another day, another dime......
Well, the Dr. visit went OK. He's impressed by how "well" I look ( First thing out of his mouth- "WOW, your hair is growing really fast"- not that I can tell though!). I don't really have to go back to see him now until December. All of my blood tests came back negative ( no signs of cancer) , and though my bonescan was good, he put me on Fosamax anyway. Apparently, the arimidex will decrease bone-mass. And he said at my age ( youth lol!) he didn't want to set me up for problems later in life. So one more gosh-darn pill I have to take! I also mentioned to him that I was having a real problem with the "hot-flashes". Now, I'm a pretty tough cookie, and I can/have handled alot of shite this past year. But it's getting to the point where I am literally DRIPPING in a matter of minutes!!!! This is a bit much, and so he gave me a pill that may/may not help. I certainly hope so! I get so bad at work sometimes that I have to go to the back of the pharmacy for a paper towel to dry off! Not fun friends, just not fun at all!

All the kids are back to school! WOOPEEE! Now maybe the house will stay neat for more than a day. Hey, I can dream, can't I? Oh, and Becky missed her bus the first day! According to her paperwork, the bus was supposed to pick her up at 8:02. Well the darn thing showed up at 7:40?????? Now- how many teenagers get to a bus stop THAT early? Especially on the first day? So I had to fit getting her to school amoungst what was already a busy morning. By the time I got home last night, I felt like someone had dragged me behind their car for a few miles. At least I work the late shift today, so I can chill out ( in peace, might I add!) until 1pm. And then back in at 8am tomorrow. Jeez, I hate that! Cause I'm not one of those people who can come home from work and go straight to bed. I'll probably be up until 12:30 or 1, and then have to get up at 5:30. BLEH!

Just a couple of other random thoughts:
Steph- don't let the idiots get to you. Just ignore them, and they'll go away!
Rhonda- DAMN GIRL! That picture is ( well, almost) enough to turn me into a Sav lady!!
Kim- DIAL-UP SUCKS!!!! I'm a "Roadrunner" all the way!
Michael- one step at a time Sweetie! Don't let anyone rush you into anything!!!
Jude- G/F- if I were you, I'd be at the local hotel ;-)!

I'll get to more as I have time. Only 3 more days until I'm officially on "Leave". I took next week off, because of the tests I have to take before surgery. And to make sure everything around the house is done. Because I don't think I'll be able to fuction normally for several days afterwards. I was having visions of me trying to do housework, and ripping a stitch or something. So I hope to avoid all that! And while I'm home, I'll probably be on here, maybe getting a new template ( I havent' decided yet!) And messing with "my space". I tried to figure out how to " personalize" it- but I'll need more time to figure it out than I have now. Sounds like a perfect project for my "time off", No?
Until later- Love and Peace! KC

P.S.S.- Guess what just came in the mail? Jon's "AARP" application! Darn- and me not around tonight to tease him about it! Bummer! :-)

Stetson university, June 15th , 1982
(Who's the cutie? Maybe I should snag him? Oh yeah, I did!)

That's me on graduation day from Stetson University. One of my kids found some old photos, and I thought I'd share.
I'm not going to be around tomorrow, since I'm going to have a full day- + work! I have to take Andy to school, and at the same time take Kim in for her testing for Kindergarten. They do that to figure out what class to put her in. It's the whole "no child left behind" thing. Personally, I thought Kindergarten was to get them acclimated to school, but not anymore. Now it's straight into classwork and homework. Sheesh, no more being a kid.
And after that, I have to go to my oncologist's office for a routine check-up. THEN I go to work. So if I'm not back here tomorrow, you'll know why. I just thought I'd let you all know I'm ok, and I haven't forgotten you all.

P.S. to Kim- Steve Young looked good, but I think "Danny-boy" ruled the day! Still, both well deserved inductions!
Peace and love, KC

Happy Friday!!

And I have the weekend off!! I thought, with Devon leaving so suddenly, I'd be stuck working. But we have some techs from other stores helping to fill in, along with a guy that normally works the Photo Dept. He says he'd rather work back with us, so we've been training him all week to help out. He seems to be catching on quickly, so that helps!

I got home late last nite ( around 10pm) and as I drove home, got treated to an amazing "light show". Mother nature in all her glory. I tried to get a picture of some of the lightening, but my darn camera phone doesn't do it justice. At one strike, the sky looked like a giant photo "negative" of a spider's web. Truly awesome! Sorry, but I just love a good lightening storm. I could sit and watch for hours.........

Today we plan on going to what I call the "expensive" store- BJ's. It's sort of like Sam's club. I call it expensive because we tend to spend too much money when we go there lol! But in the end I come out ahead, as I get a lot of stuff for very reasonable prices. It's just the "bulk-buying" aspect that makes it seem like I'm spending so much. But Kim and Andy need to bring stuff to school that will be cheaper to get there. Like tissues and paper plates. I know, not exactly "school suppies" as such. But it's on their lists. The retiree's down here will not vote in taxes or monies for schools, so such supplies have to be brought in by the students. And anyway, when you have a family the size of ours, buying 8 boxes of Kleenex, or a 36 count pack of T.P. is not a bad thing! The prices actually make it worth while in the end. I can buy a box of Tide there, that will last me 3 months, for the price of the box at the regular grocery store- that lasts just one month! Just call me the "Bulk Bargain Queen!"

Another thing I just might do this weekend is work in the back yard. Some of our beds have gone to the weeds- and I hate seeing that. But because of all the crap I've been through this past year, I just haven't had the energy ( or time!) to get out there and dig. So if the weather co-operates, I'm going into gardener-mode. But I'll remember this time, not to overdo. I did that last fall, and paid the price- NOT going there again!

So hopefully I'll have a productive weekend. I'd like to get some stuff done around here, before I'm stuck looking at it for 3-4 weeks, and not be able to. That just frustrates the heck out of me. I've been told ( by Dr. B ) that I won't even be able to drive for 2 weeks after surgery!! EEKKK! No freedom! I'll have to rely on Mom or Jon to drive me around. I hate that- I've been brought up to be independant, so that is like jail for me. Oh well, if it get's me back to "normal" ( as if I've ever been normal- hehehehe!) then it's all worth it.

Well, I guess it's time for your Friday Funny. Brought to us this week by my roomie Janine. ( HI Sweetie!!!)
....................................................

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.

If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.

Don't you just wish they'd get along like this all the time??

Well, Becky's officially registered. Took all morning, because we had to have one of her classes changed. Some idiot signed her up for Spanish II? She darn near flunked Spanish I!!! So we had to get her out of that course, or she'd be in over her head before she started. She's decided to try German instead. She needs a language for college, so I hope this one's easier for her. And we have a friend ( actually, she's the mom of one of Andy's close friends) who IS German, so she can help if things get a little rough.
Now on to my luck ( or lack thereof!) You all know that I had planned to make a DVD of all the "Lep on TV" stuff I have. Well, my DVR DIED! It's woking as a basic cable box, but none of the "recording" functions are accessable. I spent an hour on the phone with Brighthouse last nite, trying to get if fixed that way- to no avail. So a technician is coming by the house this afternoon. Hopefully he can get it working, or the Today Show, and Regis and Kelly stuff I had are GONE!!! I was planning to tape all that stuff while I was out on leave, so I would have more time, and not have to compete with the kids for the TV. Well, procrastination has come up and bit me in the a@@ once again! Cross your fingers folks, or the afore mentioned DVD's will not be winging their way to you all any time soon!
I also had to go out and replace my headset/mic for the computer. I think Andy ran over the cords once too often. So this time, the headset is in hiding! I'm keeping the good ones in my closet, and let him use the broken ones. ( one earpiece still works, but the mic & the other earpiece died) That's all he needs for his games anyway. And Jon just uses them to listen to news online, so "stereo" is not something important. I'm the one that uses them for music and chat, so the good ones are MINE!
Well, I'm going to go finish Harry Potter, and wait for the cable guy. Hope your day is going well, and I'll see you all soon! Peace and Love, KC


****EDIT- The Cable guy just left- I lost it all! Live 8, the Today Show, and Regis performances. Shit, Murphy- GET OUT OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ************

**** We interupt this blog for a very important announcement!*********
To my Co-Worker, and fellow "Lep-O- holic" Devon;
CONGRADULATIONS DEVON!! YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!!


She just got the phone call last evening, She's been accepted to Pharmacy School!!! BRAVO!
She thought that she had not made it, most everyone we know got their acceptance letters months ago. But at the last minute, she got in. So now (since orientation started yesterday!) she has to go down today, catch up, get her student loan fixed up, and find herself someplace to live! Keep your fingers crossed for her, as she has to do all this, and commute down to West Palm Beach ( about 1 & 1/2 hours) AND take care of her young son! I'm SOOO glad for her, she's tried so hard to make a better life for her and her son, and finally something has gone her way!

Of course, this leaves us with one less tech. Actually 2- since the other pharmacy student we had working with us is also leaving tomorrow. So we're really short-staffed now. So I think the next 2 weeks are gonna be rough. Unless they can find someone FAST! And if they don't, I don't even want to think about what's going to happen when I leave for my surgery!

I should have known this would happen though. She and I had just gotten done talking about a future "Lep-Trek" we could take, if the boys were coming back down close by. She REALLY wants to see them again. I finally find someone who understands- and boom! Their gone! But I'm sure we'll work something out, if the opportunity arises. She was even talking about "2 or 3 shows in a row- you know- Let's really do it right Karen!" HEHEHE! I think I've created a monster. (No- you all know I'm kidding here!) She said that to me yesterday, and a big grin hit my face. It was kind-of like: Oh, COOL! Finally! Someone I know who "GET'S IT!" ......

**I think "Murphy" has moved back into my life. You all know of any antidotes????????****

Well, it's not like I'm not used to it. I can't even get on my favorite graphics site this morning ( I was going to put up a good one for Dev) Well, at least I got the chance to get here at all this morning... It could have been worse ;-)

Have a great day ! I'll catch all of you later! I just had to brag for her!
Love and Peace, KC

Happy Birthday Joe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's always been one of the attractions to me with this band. Their ages. The fact that when I discovered this band back in the day, they were MY age. That while I was in college, still trying to figure out what I was going to do when I "grew up", they aready knew, and were doing it in a BIG way. ( mind you, I had just gotten "On Through The Night"- but Damn! A record deal at their age???!!!) While most of the bands out there were 10 years their senior ( or more!) These guys were blowing them off the stage. Made me proud! So have a great day Joe. Rest, relax, spend some time with the new wife. And know that we thank you for 25+ years of great music, many laughs, and good times. Heres to many, many more!!!!

Well, I'm sorry about the lack of posts lately, but I've been tired. Like I just can't sleep enough to get motivated to do anything. And what little energy I have manged to muster, has been used to keep house and home from total anarchy. So I'll try to get my shite together, and not be so lazy.
Wed. I have to take Becky down to register for her classes for school. It starts next Monday, the 8th, and I just hope that this year she does better. I think she's "seen the light" and will try, but I'm going to help her sign up for classes more in line with what she's capable of. Last year she was "railroaded" into a couple of classes that quite frankly, I didn't think she could handle. And I was proved right. So into my "attack-Mom" hat, and off we'll go!
I know a lot of you have commented on the fact that school starts so early down here. I agree. When I started school, we didn't go until AFTER labor day. Even in college ( and I attended that down here in Fl.) we were on campus only the week prior to labor day. But for some reason, over the last few years, they've decided to start at the beginning of August. Which is very strange to me as well, but whatcha gonna do? And this year sees Kimmie into school, so that should be an interesting time as well.
On a totally different vein- Is anyone else SICK of all these reality shows?? I hate them! I have never been able to become interested in any of them, aside from "Extreme Make-over- Home Edition". And that is probably because I like the fact that they are doing something NICE for families, and not making horses- arses of people. Give me a good sitcom any day. If I want "Reality", I'll watch the news- thankyouverymuch!
Well, not much else to say today. I'll try and find something more interesting to post tomorrow. If life gives me something interesting. Then again, it's been nice that life as been boring for a change. I'll take it over what I have been dealing with!
Have a great day! Peace, Love, and lots of birthday candles ( To a certain handsome Brit!) KC
