Monday Monday, can’t trust that day… I stole that from a friend’s Facebook status update from this morning. Actually though, I’m having a pretty good Monday. I just have the song in my head & thought I would share. You’re welcome. So, on to the miscellany!
It feels like I’m posting a LOT these days. Does it seem that way to you? Do you look at your blog reader & think, “Will she ever just SHUT UP?” Humph. Well maybe I’ll take tomorrow off. We’ll see.
I was commenting on another blog last week about how I don’t care if the toothpaste tube is squeezed from the middle or bottom, just as long as we squeeze every last drop out of it. But I remember a day in the distant past when it was very important to me that the toothpaste be squeezed from the bottom. Huge deal. Although I didn’t care what Dr. M did – I just spent extra time every evening making sure it was the way I liked it. I was trying to remember when I stopped caring & I think it was when I started flossing regularly. Who has time to police the toothpaste when you have to spend all these extra minutes or seconds flossing?
I kept losing my cane this weekend. I would be in the bedroom looking around & realize I’d left it in the bathroom. I don’t want to totally abandon it just yet because I kind of walk like a duck without it & I don’t want to learn any bad walking habits. But soon. Soon.
And speaking of my recent surgery (I know, I think I promised last week to quit yapping about it), I’ve lost my most reliable excuse for getting out of work. “You know, I would help with the pancake breakfast, but I’m just not able to be on my feet that long.” “I would vacuum out my car, but it’s just impossible, what with the hip pain.” “I would take a walk around the neighborhood, but I’m just afraid I couldn’t make it around the block.” Well, little missy, what are you going to say now? Admit your abiding laziness, or just woman up & do things? Hmmm?
I went to the café at work this morning fully intending to get a 1000 calorie muffin, or some chocolate covered almonds. Or maybe a honey bun. I walked out with a banana and fat free yogurt. Wha??? I would just like to say welcome to the alien in my head, can you stay awhile please?
Okay. Done now.
