Five Things

I've been experiencing a severe case of writer's block or blogger's block or whatever.  

Maybe because my routine has been seriously disturbed since the boys have been out of school or maybe because I just honestly and truly have not had anything interesting or insightful to say.  

You'd think with them being all up in my business that I'd at least be rewarded with some good blog fodder but they've actually been pretty well-behaved for the past few days. Now holding my breath and crossing my fingers that I did not just jinx it all by putting that in print.

So what have I been up to for the past week?  

1. I painted our bedroom a lovely shade of teal a.k.a Aqua Smoke on Saturday and I could not be more pleased with it.  And I tried by darndest to post a pic of it but Blogger is being an arse. 

2. I had the second half of the second root canal done yesterday and was a little perplexed that the endodontist and his assistant seemed somewhat perturbed that I only took one halcion instead of the one and a half he prescribed. 

His assistant said, "Are you going to be okay with us doing the work since you only took the one halcion?"   "Of course", I said.  "I'm perfectly fine."  Then he comes in and says in a semi-joking manner, "You seem really awake..."Why is everyone doing this to me today?"  

Am I missing something here?  "I'm not even nervous", I say.  I guess they prefer their patients semi-comatose and mumbling incoherently.  Probably more fun for them that way. Sorry to disappoint!

3. I haven't been able to go to my classes of pilates, yoga and zumba at noon since the boys are home so yesterday evening when they were still at their momaw and popaw's I decided to hit the 6:00 R.I.P.P.E.D class.

Note to self a.k.a Word to the wise:  Probably not the best idea to go to a class called R.I.P.P.E.D for the first time after you've taken a halcion(which is basically a sleeping pill), had a root canal, passed out on the couch for a couple of hours and eaten a Little Debbie Nutty Buddy Bar.

About 10 minutes into the class my side started burning like blue blazes and it was only on pride alone that I managed to survive the entire hour of that tortuous madness.

4. I was told by my eldest that I am not cool enough to drive him, a friend of his, and two girls to a movie or bowling. Good to know.  And where oh where did my little boy go?

5. My heart broke when I found out that my friend Shirley's brain tumor was cancerous and she must now endure chemo.  

Cancer sucks.

But God is still good....


  1. I worry about the day I will no longer be cool.

  2. The exercise class sounds like torture to me.

  3. Oh, I wish I could paint something! My kitchen is in desperate need, but my kids are a bit needier. They do their best martial arts/MMA fighting when I'm trying to get something done.

  4. Oh no, I dread the day I'm not cool anymore! :) Oh wait, maybe that's already happened since I put a note in Manuel's lunchbox telling him I loveed him and to have a great day, and he asked me to do never do it again! :)

    Thank you for your comment help! I am SO excited now! :) (it's the little things! ;)

  5. Well you have been busy by the sounds of it. I'd love to see that colour.
    PS. So terribly sorry to hear about your friend. Cancer does suck. She's in my thoughts for sure. Hugs

  6. Oh no about #4 and #5. And the root canal. I'm sorry to hear that. I've been trying to motivate myself to paint our master bedroom but since it is 195 degrees every dang day and I can't air it out, the project will have to wait. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
