We had a lovely dinner tonight...we went with a fast food theme, homemade lamb burgers and french fries YUM!!

Went to the doctors today to get my results back from my knee scans..it looks like I may have arthritis, so I am being sent to a knee surgeon, then I am going to have an MRI, just to have a deeper look at what is going on

Cooling down now, so time to hit the recliners with a hot milo and some Masterchef AU

Yup--we've been friends forever. That does not, however, explain why I was waxing the shower at 4:00 a.m. or why I was pressure washing the deck at 6:00 a.m. to get the chicken poo off of it (I hose it down every night--there really isn't a lot of chicken poo on it in the morning)...or why, somewhere in between I started a batch of Kimchi...maybe I should have a bottle of wine open when they get here...

I think you should have the second bottle of wine open when they arrive, relax!

I'm thinking "Chicken Disorder" isn't your only Obsession.

Wow, you're too young to have bum hinges! Although two dear friends of mine (one male, one female) had knee replacements done when they were in their later 40s. Hmm, you're still too young. Hope everything works out good for you.

I just got back from a run to the store. They moved two triple deckers this past week to the parking lot across the street. They are going to be building a new school for a charter school in the now empty lots. I have no idea what they are going to do with the two houses. But they sure do look out of place in the parking lot.

On the way back I noticed that my scooter needed to be charged. I kept praying that I could make it home without running out of power. I did. I made it. I need to remember to plug it in every night.

That I don't know (or want to know). The guest bedroom is at the other end of the house. If they snore, I don't think I will hear them.

You caught me. I do have OCD about cleaning--toothbrush along the baseboards, etc. Trying to get over that.
