All of a sudden, I have gone from happy to oh-so frustrated with things. All in a couple of hours' time. Amazing huh? What's that you say? Medication? No, just more patience.
You really don't want to hear me rant about my dogs, and how I flipped both of them off tonight any time they even so much as looked in my direction. Because I love getting puked on, and I love when my dog then decides to do a sit-n-spin maneuver in the middle of it, and skids across the floor, trying to get outside. Oh, I love dog puke all over myself. Know what I love even more? When what the dog has puked is something she never should have eaten in the first place. Like, say, an autographed Texas Rangers picture from way back when they were a decent team, and an empty deodorant stick, and an used pull-up.
How about the big-ass steroid shot I got in my ass (oh, imagine that!) yesterday, and the fact that steroids have always made me stark-raving HUNGRY AS HELL. I just want to consume everything, at any time (except pictures, pull-ups, and empty deodorant sticks).
How about after said steroid shot, and the first of many installments of oral steroids, I.am.still.itchy.and irritated.
Oh, yeah, the positive stuff:
-I believe my brother is moving back here. And will probably be living with me. I.cannot.wait. We do fun stuff, like throw water balloons at unsuspecting runners & bike riders. We stay up all night to play Mario Cart, or the original Nintendo. I love him. This makes me want to jump up and down and SQUEEEEEE!
-I just bought Blackberry Cobbler ice cream. It is delicious. Don't care that it doesn't help me lose weight, or that it's full of sugar and carbs and FAT. It's lovely. That's all.
-I am going to New Orleans in exactly 18 days! Woohoo! Yummy food awaits me! And drinks. lots of drinks. and sleep not interrupted by a very sweet 3 year old saying 'Momma, your hair is all crazy when you sleep'. And lots of dancing, which I hope works off the calories of the drinks and food. Gumbo. MMMMmmmmm.
-Fresca and tequila. Someone told me about this, and tequila is my best friend, but I get pretty sick of having to drink it in margaritas, or straight. This sounds like it is sip-able. mmmmm. gonna try it out this week, I hope.
-Jodi Picoult's book 'Keeping Faith'. I just started it, and seriously, this is my thought process every night: 'Sleep? Read? Blog? Olympics? Sleep? READ!' It is sooo good!
-I am super proud of this one, and sooo excited!: I was awarded a fellowship for school today! I just applied for it a week ago! And I really didn't know what my chances were, but here it is! I got it! woohoo!!!
-I get to go buy books for class this week. And school supplies. And go to Olive Garden with my good friend Kristy. Weee!
-This is probably the best of all: I am going on a weekend trip to NYC, to see the Yankees play in the stadium b4 they tear it down! Is that not awesome??? It is for me, because that has always been something I wanted to do. Of course, I don't have plane tickets yet, nor game tickets, nor a hotel. That's part of the frustrating shit I'm not gonna blog about. So. yeah.
How about this lame post? I promise I'll be back with the thought-provoking, or funny, or whatever. It's just not happenin' tonight, guys!
