Tricia Dishes

Tuesday, April 14, 2009


Last Sunday, my bebegirl turned THIRTY years old! She had a wonderful weekend, not the kind of birthday that has been happening for the last few years. Also, on Sunday, my mother turned 81. She isn't doing too well. She sleeps all the time and when she is awake, she really is just waiting to go back to sleep. I can dig it.
Christopher had an extremely long job interview, so let's keep our fingers crossed that he gets the job.
I am about the same, the mouth soreness and spasms and lordy lordy, I feel fat! My mall walking hasn't exactly been a success. Maybe I can get some in before my trip, which I am really looking forward to. I will spend the night with Carolyn, then Christopher will come and pick me up to go to his house for several days. I need it.
Well, that's all for now. Take care.

Fresh air

I have my new windows open and the fans going, nice fresh air is blowing into the house. Of course, I am freezing because it isn't real sunny out today and the house has a bit of a chill. Buffy is going crazy trying to get into the windows so I have to make sure that they are not up too high or she will jump out. That would be all I would need. Buffy run over or running away. She is a cat I want to keep. David called her "Bufferin" and "Buffanella" all the time. Or, because she is so talkative, he called her "whiny baby needy cat" a lot! Which she is.
I need to go to the store but today has been a really off day. I didn't even go see Mom today, although she is probably still asleep. I think she has rubbed off on me, because all I want to do is sleep today. Must be that fresh air! Tomorrow will be better to do what I need to do. One thing I desperately need is cat litter. I wish I could get these cats to quit going to the bathroom. And of course, the one that pees on the counter/stove, well, I want to put her out. I tried today but she freaked out and ran back in. I can't blame her. She is twelve years old and has never been an outside cat. Problems, problems, problems. I would feel horrible if she got run over. She'll be one of those cats that live to be twenty, just you watch!!!
The feeling is coming back to my thumb. It's about time! It still feels really weird, but it feels a tiny bit less weird. I hope it completely goes away soon. Not my thumb, the weirdness!!!
WELL, that's all for now. I am not even going to put a picture on here today. I will make up for it later!
Ta ta for now!

I have new windows, and no, it hasn't got a thing to do with my computer! We have had these horrible, moldy windows in our dining area and just never could afford to get them fixed, but we planned to because they were painted shut and had mold on them. I just kept them covered with some wooden blinds and used some caulking tape on it to cover the mold. Well, I bit the bullet today and while I STILL can't afford it, I got the windows redone. They look great! I can open them now to feel some fresh air, they are easy to clean, and most of all, they tore off the sills where the mold was and replaced it and then repainted the whole thing!! I am just thrilled over them. Now I can not feel embarrassed about them and can open up the blinds without being "blinded" by nasty woodwork. AND, a bush was growing into it because there was a three inch opening at the top of one of the windows! Now my house will be easier to heat and cool without that just wasting energy.
I am also cooking supper, so, something is beeping. Later!!!!

Send up some prayers

My mother is very sick. They put a feeding tube in her yesterday and she wasn't too coherent today. I just hope it isn't too little, too late. Please remember her in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks.
