Happy Sunday everyone! Wow, I love having an extra hour of sleep! Love it, love it, love it!! I feel so robbed in the Spring when they take away an hour, but boy do I love it and am so grateful to have that hour given back in the Fall. Sleep has always been a problem in my life - I never seem to have enough - so when I can have more, I am happy. I have had problems with insomnia for over 20 years. I am beginning to lick it with the right medications, relaxation techniques, pain control and a memory foam mattress. It has been a long, long haul. Does anyone else have a memory foam mattress? If you have fibromyalgia or general pain in your muscles from any condition this is for you!!!! It changed my life!! I also have a memory foam pillow. I went from having miserable sleep, to sleeping quite well most nights! Wow!
So, I got an incredible present on my birthday. Two friend's of Chelsea's called around 9PM and said they were coming over to bring me a present. In they walked and lo and behold, the present was CHELSEA!!!! Chelsea has been here since Thursday and will be here until Friday! She is the best birthday present I have ever gotten :-)!! They kept this secret from me for a month...sneaky, sneaky!
This week's Scavenger Hunt's subject is "cute". I must admit that when I saw the subject my nose wrinkled in dislike. I don't like the word. I like the words beautiful, pretty, handsome, stunning, eclectic, joyful. I own nothing cute. When I hear the word cute I think of children and babies (which I love). That is all. I looked up the word online. It is defined as "attractive or pretty especially in a dainty or delicate way". Hmmm.... I don't think that is exactly how we use the word cute nowadays. I wanted to take a picture of kids in their Halloween costumes, but trick-or treaters don't come out until tomorrow in my town. I searched my home. No bows, no frills, no dolls, nothing "cute". Actually, I think I would safely call myself anti-cute. This is the best I can do for "cute". Here is my kitty cat (oh no, NOT another cat picture!) Honey getting away from Baby. This is her favorite spot now. She comes here when she doesn't want to be bopped, chased, stalked or generally bothered. Baby just won't leave Honey alone.
I wanted to congratulate Matt, my son, for getting a superior rating at District's on his solo!! Good luck at State's!!
Toodles, all! Chels and I are off to eat Chinese and visit family! Mmmmmm....xox
Senator Franken did the right thing - I don't feel happy about writing this. I don't have a song in my heart and I don't want to include another photo of Al Franken looking downcast as he exit...
