It’s my birthday and that’s about all we are going to discuss. Put away the balloons in the back of the bus - - - we are just going to quietly skip this one. But I will take a piece of that cake – wait, it’s not a chicken cake or cake made with sweet milk is it? Good, then send it my way! I won’t skip the presents either, my hubby and kids bought me an HP e-printer that prints, scans and faxes. I finally have something to put on that desk. Thanks guys! My daughter is excited that my age is now the same number as the Disney Channel, 39…or is it 43?!
I’ve lived in many different states and am
horrified at the number of people who do not set out their shoes on the night of December 5th for Saint Nick to fill with goodies. I find it rather sad that so many people are missing
out on this custom. When I was little my mother told me that Saint Nick left me in her shoes and she found me on the morning of December 6th. When I explained this to my son he had only one question, “how big were her shoes mom?”
I’m Sorry/Guest Bloggers
I apologize for not having a blog yesterday; I had a doctor appointment and work to do for my clients. I wasn’t aware that I would get
yelled at by complete strangers and that relatives would be upset about it. That makes me feel good in a way but at the same time strangers yelling at me is creepy. I will do my best to post a blog everyday but I know that sometimes life will get in the way so forgive me when it happens. I am also welcoming
guest bloggers! If you would like to write a blog (on a Word document) just e-mail it to me and you can be the blogger of the day. I will let you drive the bus!!!
I had an appointment yesterday with Dr. Joseph. Now that you have “an image” of Dr. Joseph in your mind based on just the name let me shatter that thought for you. Dr. Joseph is a woman of Indian decent. Her first name is
Preeti. Is that pronounced “pretty”?
She is a neurologist and she diagnosed me with having vestibular migraines. Have
you ever heard of such a thing? For me I sometimes get these dizzy spells and when I look at the computer all I see is colored flashes of light. I feel like I’m riding on a roller coaster and my stomach is constantly in knots. Other
times I will have the old fashioned migraines where I have sensitivity to light, a pounding head and vomiting. She wrote me a prescription for some medicine that I am supposed to take as soon as I start feeling like I’m getting a headache. I hope the pills work but I can’t imagine any pill making these symptoms go away.
The doctor also made crap out of my feet and said I should compare my feet to my relative’s feet to see if my high arches and hammer toes
are genetic. The nerve of that woman! I don’t have hammer toes, my toes simply curl up, it is quite cute if you ask me. And what business does she have looking at my toes anyway? She is supposed to be a brain doctor not a foot
doctor. So on Christmas I plan to compare feet with my parents and sister and that will confirm that I’m not a freak. And maybe I’ll even post pictures and let you decide who has the cutest feet. I’ll get you my “Preeti” and your little dog too!
And to add insult to injury she referred me to an ophthalmologist just because I haven’t seen an eye doctor in twenty years. She thinks that’s a big deal. I informed her that I still pass the eye exams at the Division of Motor Vehicles and she said that isn’t considered a real eye exam. She said CONSIDERING YOUR AGE, I think it’s time. Listen here Miss Preeti young thing; I didn’t need to hear that……at all.
So Friday I will be seeing the ophthalmologist.
Take That Santa
On Sunday we took our kids to see Santa at the mall. My daughter did not want to sit on his lap for a picture but we insisted. When he asked what she wanted for Christmas she told him, “nothing.” He named off gifts from doll
houses to bikes but she still shook her head no. Finally he gave in and said that he had plenty of coal that he could deliver too. She told him that would be fine as she is studying rocks and minerals at school. So take that Santa – give
her coal and she will study it!
The Force is With TJ
Mr. Maas did some shopping yesterday and one of the items on his list was a genuine Star Wars lightsaber. This is not your average lightsaber; this is a thirty dollar toy that is a replica to the lightsabers from the movie. Why someone would pay thirty dollars for a lightsaber is beyond me but he felt the need to purchase it for our son and he has a “real” job so I was in no position to argue. When he got home he inspected the receipt to make sure all of the treasures he had purchased were on it. But oh dear, the teller forgot to ring up the lightsaber! So today I have been tasked with informing Wal-Mart of their error and paying for the toy. Luke Skywalker has nothing on TJ, the force is with him!
Have a fantastic day passengers!
