Thanks, Princess. I wouldn't want Cat believing the worst!

I was a bit worried.

With love,

Cat, in my case he is more like my "Teddy Bear" than "The Beast".
And thank you for your concern over my health. I deal with pain on a daily basis but when something acute comes along like a kidney stone (or my recent kidney infection), I need extra help to deal with it all. I hate taking medication, but sometimes there is no choice.

Thanks, Taxy. I have also developed a deep chesty cough so am probably going to be spending the night in the living room again so I don't wake up TB. He gets up really early for work.

All I want for Christmas is some health!

Today would have been my dad's 74th birthday, and since my mom is here this year we'll have lunch at Long John Silvers (his absolute favorite fast food place). When I'd be working he would get rob to take him any chance he got! Today will be remembering dad.

I also made his favorite pie, graham cracker pie for us to enjoy.

Sounds like a fun day for you and mom. Is Rob going to be joining you?

I am trying to multi task. It is not working. I got all the dry ingredients for the cake in a large zippy bag. Then I decided to tackle the frosting. I got the butter melted and added the cocoa just fine. Then I decided to make a cup of coffee at the same time. I poured the cream in a bowl instead of my cup. I decided it was time to take a break and sit down. I can see it is going to be a long day. One chore at a time Addie, just one chore.

He sure will be, he's on a 3 week vacation (just because he can), that stinker!

If it makes you feel better Addie, not too long ago, I poured iced tea into my cereal!

Just put some mini pizza in the toaster oven for lunch. Then need to clean up the kitchen and make some sweet and spicy pecans!

And I just put some "non-mini" pizza in the toaster oven after giving it a jump start in the microwave... The last of my Giordano's style pizza

Just picked up my MacBook Pro from the Apple store. New battery installed. The original lasted 4 years and was down to an hour+ between charges and was impacting the track pad.
