Productive two days

Tonight, I am sitting on the couch drinking the most YUMMY drink! I had some chocolate vodka, hazelnut coffee liqueur and milk, so I made a slightly different White Russian. Tastes AWESOME!!! You should know that when my husband actually drinks something I made (he's usually the bartender around here) that it's out of sight! Popped some popcorn, sprinkled zesty nacho on it, and I'm going to watch a little TV.

The past couple of days have been fairly productive. Here is just a sample of what I've done:

- Got mom COMPLETELY out of the old apartment, got it inspected and cleaned, and turned in everything so she is only in her new assisted living apartment.

- Sent off the paperwork to cash out her life insurance

- Got myself on as a signer on her bank account, got new checks with both our names and my address on them

- Took the roof off of the gazebo and started on a tarp cover for it that will hopefully hold up to our North Texas winds better than the thin crap that comes with it. It won't look quite as classy (being held on there by somewhat matching brown duct tape) but it has to be better than shredded cloth. Tomorrow, I'll have Scott help me put it back on so I can finish the edges.

- Got together three bags of clothes and shoes to donate to Goodwill, and two bags of trash.

- Reorganized our drawers and closets

- Cleaned the downstairs (counters, dishes, laundry, mopping, vacuuming, etc.)

- Played with water guns in the backyard with the boys

- Blew bubbles in the backyard with the boys

- SHOWERED (believe me when I say this is an ACCOMPLISHMENT!)

- Colored my hair

Now, I can't wait to go to the They Might Be Giants concert on Tuesday with oddharmonic and a couple of her friends. I've never been to the House of Blues here, and have always seen TMBG at the Gypsy Tea Room, which is sadly no longer an option.

BTW - I'll only be bringing a cane (leopard print, of course), but we can park in the handicap parking with my hangtag.

Back to my drink, popcorn, and TV.

Oh! I also got a copy of my absolute FAVORITE animated show of all times - The Animaniacs episode 'Les Animals', where they do versions of all of the Les Miserables songs. LOVE IT! Can't wait to watch it with the kids, who will have NO frame of reference.

RETURNING to work? *laugh* I had the surgery on Wednesday and was back on Monday. Actually, I had a concall on Friday, but I promptly fell asleep afterwards. I'm back at work but have plenty of vacation.

Yeah, ANY time is fine to come visit. March 15 is Scott's birthday and the boys are staying with my mom at her new place overnight so Scott and I can go to the annual St. Patrick's day party Colleen has. Other than that, we are WIDE open.

Hmmm. Then we'll have to figure something out. The BG has no exams and no school stuff for the next few weeks so he wants to make up for lost time with the LG. His spring break is from March 8 - 16. We're not going up to Ohio, so conceivably I could come out there without the LG - although that would break his heart.

We also have a friend throwing a party on the 15th, and my mom comes from March 20 - 23. Surgery is on the 26th, which knocks out the two following weeks.

Hmmmm. I'm not sure what to do. Wanna come see us?

OMG!!!! Do it! Come out here for St. Patty's!!! You can come to the party with us!!!

I would love to come see you guys, but with our 'situation' here, I have NO CASH. Zip. Nada. Gotta wait until hubby gets a J-O-B before I do any spending.

For once, it's not the time but the money.

You don't want a house guest out there for Mr. Trish's birthday. That just ain't right.

. . . unless I have some stripper come deliver a singing telegram or something . . . .

. . . or we take him for a skydive . . .

Aw, hell! We would love a house guest for his birthday. I would also totally have a stripper come give a singing telegram! *laugh*

As for skydiving...I SO doubt he would do that. There isn't enough alcohol in the WORLD. *laugh* Wow. What happens if you throw up while skydiving?

What happens if you throw up while skydiving?

Seeing as how you're moving forward at 120 mph, and all that dreck flies back into your faces, your tandem master will probably just cut you loose. You're on your own . . . with no parachute.

I knew there was a reason I would never step foot outside of a perfectly good airplane. :)

Although I would love to do one of those inside air 'skydiving' experiences. I didn't get to go last time I was in Vegas, and there isn't one here in Dallas. :(

We have to figure something out here. There has to be a date that works for both of us to visit one way or the other.

It's way way way past my bedtime. I'll go dream on it and we'll figure something out in the next few days.

Sleep tight. In my dreams, we lived closer and could see each other anytime we wanted. I privately wish Scott would find a job in the Atlanta area. :)

I asked Scott and he said two things:

- There isn't a tandem instructor who would want to jump out of a plane with a fat man attached to him


- I wouldn't mind her being here for my birthday weekend
