Light a candle and say a prayer for those that have served and are currently serving.
Remember to stop and think about why we have a holiday. Memorial Day is to honor the men and women of our military. Thank every service member you see and hold those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom, always in your hearts. Thank you to all my friends and family who have served our great nation! You make me proud to be an American!!!
What Is A Veteran? A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to, and including my life.' That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact..
Linda is out of town and THIS is where I'll be all weekend.
At her house.
The girls are coming down for some pool side fun with me today. I had a blast with Pudd'n yesterday playing in the water. I was exhausted by the end of the day and he was still ready to run about the house.
Ya'll have a good week end and remember what it is about. Put up your American flag to show your pride and thank a service member.
Last night at work when I was standing up by the host stand a gentlman came in with a shirt that had the logo of our local shooting range embroidered upon it. I remarked how much I loved going there. It was a perfect date night for me & the hub to go to. The gentleman then whips out a business card and upon it it says "one free lane rental". Guess what we'll be doing soon? Oh hell YEAH!
Ugh, a bunch of "little" problems are adding up to give me one big stress headache. If I wasn't working tonight I'd be mixing myself a stiff one right now. But since I am, I can't. Fuck! What is it that is bothering me? Just stupid mundane shit piling up. Little annoyances that are really bugging me. Everything will work out fine. I know it will. Shit better!
I got yer fucking hat right here part deux............
I was bored last night. Too bad you really can't make out the rose in my hair. It is from my garden. They are called black magic roses and the darkest rose you can get. So dark they blend in with my hair.
The local dinner & tournament show had a two for one ticket price. Cathy had never had the pleasure of going; so when I heard about the special I snagged us some tickets. We had a blast and I spent the entire night all tingly in my naughty bits. For me there is nothing hotter than a man on a gorgeous horse. I love me some Fresians; to look at. Riding them is another story. They are nuttier than a fruit cake and I don't bounce back like I used to if my sorry ass gets thrown. My true love are the Andalusian horses. This place was filled with them and I'm so glad no one was sitting on my right because the noises I was making? I'm sure some one would have thought I was pleasuring myself in the middle of the show. The food was good but the price of two beers sent us in to cardiac arrest. No wonder we pack flasks!
Holy cow do I need a serious massage right about now. My neck is jacked up and my back a huge knot. On a happy note, I used up the last of my home improvement gift cards and will be having my very first vegetable garden. We had to finally get rid of Pudd'ns swing set and now have the room to have a garden. I also picked up several plants that are supposed to attrack humming birds & butterflies. So far I've gotten two butterflies & no hummers. I know they are in the neighborhood. I hear them and I've seen them about. I hope every one had a nice mother's day. Steve made me breakfast and then I went to work. I had put corned beef in the crock pot and damn did it turn out GOOD.
So I finally drag my carcass to the doctor's office. I have a sneaking suspicion my acid reflux is back. Not only is it back, it is back with a vengeance. I have an ulcer on my larynx from my acid reflux. Fuuuuuuuuuck! Then I go to my dermatologist for him to check out something. That something turns out to be a pre cancerous spot on my chest. Well fuck me running. So we are going to see if we can treat it topically to make it go away. If not, we hack it out. I told Dr. K we weren't hacking shit out until the first week of June. Linda is going away memorial weekend and I plan on spending every damn day in the pool having fun with my kid. The witches girls will be joining me at Linda's for fun in the sun. I can't wait. It is going to be a damn good time.
I don't know WTF is up with Pudd'n but sleeping is not high on his list of priorities. He did not get to sleep until 5am today. It is a school day. He's screwed. What does he do all night? Watch his videos and yes I tried putting him to bed. For 45 min I had to listen to him hum, moan and grunt (his bed is next to ours in our room). And needless to say when he is in his room watching tv we can still hear him humming, moaning and grunting. I just fucking love autism.
