I just had one of those crazy days. It started with forgetting the numbing cream for chemo. I drove home to get it. I drove out to have lunch with Ian, but he was finishing up. I drove to Party City, but they didn't have what I wanted. I came home to the laundry room being flooded. Hopefully, I fixed the problem. I then dog sat and the dog did a giant poop in the house. Lastly, I arranged a ride for Ellen to her dance recital so I could start my Swim Across America training class. The class starts next week. I missed Ellen's dance recital for nothing. A big storm is rolling in, which means the kids won't fall asleep until the thunder and lightning are over.
Speaking of sleeping, every now and then I take an Ambien to help me sleep. I usually take one on Sunday nights, so I face the week well rested. I don't know why, but periodically it makes me loopy. It gives me a nice little buzz, before I crash and burn for the night. This doesn't happen each time, kinda too bad. Late, late, late Sunday night a group of college friends called to talk and I was totally out of it. I didn't remember the call until driving into work. I swear they mentioned they were going to Fiji. I called them back, but no answer, so maybe they are really in Fiji. The other weird thing is Ellen and Ian were both in my room. I have no clue why or what they were doing. I have no idea what I talked about with my friends. The whole episode is foggy.
I started reading Stieg Larsson's new book, even though I am in the middle of another book. I really want to see how this ends. I have several friends waiting for me to finish, so they can read my copy. One friend is like 137th on the check-out list at the library. I should finish quickly. Larsson sets up slowly and I find the names confusing, but then it really picks up. Lisbeth is such a compelling character.
Holey Crapoley was it hot today. I like hot weather, but it was an August day. The pools will all be heating up nicely with this heat. The kids go in no matter the temperature. I was numbing my sore feet in the pool a couple of nights ago, I think it is a couple of degrees warmer.
True Blood is on On Demand - whoohoo! I have been catching up, getting ready for season 3. It is so incredibly rawnchy, but laugh outloud funny. Excellent casting for this series! Enough with the Maenid though! I missed the season finale of LOST. The show is on Tuesdays, so why was the finale on Sunday night? They just had to be extra confusing. Quite a few friends are disappointed. I think I read they are reshowing the last episode this Sunday night, so hopefully this is true and I can watch it. It isn't on the computer yet, or I just can't find it.
