I'm exhausted. Daughter and grandson came for dinner tonight, and little man was so hyper. Mondays are his full day at preschool and we think he was just so over tired. He wore his mom and I out. Fixing to clean up the taco salad leftovers and settle my own self down.

Listening to my brother-in-law's blues show on NWCZ Radio in Seattle, WA, and drinking a smidge of Glacier Distilling's Bad Rock rye whiskey.

Googling to see if I can figure out why my laptop no longer recognizes my phone when I plug it in with the USB cable.

Also had tornado warnings go off Friday night during Awful Arthur's trip through our neck of the woods, but no damage here.
The TV warning is done whereby they take control of your TV. You can't change the channel and ignore the flashing warning and the beeps. Then in the middle of that they also took control of my computer. I was in the middle of typing and because I live within walking distance of the airport and they were having micro cloud burst, they started flashing warnings that East Boston was under tornado watch. Not Boston, but East Boston specifically. Let me tell you, that got my attention. On went my shoes, a dress and I made sure I had anything else I could think of. That is the first time I have ever been that nervous and concerned regarding the weather. And I have been through every weather condition you can name.

My dog is house broken. He goes to the sliding glass door when he needs to go out. Does not bark....just stands there expecting you to know that he's there needing to go out. He also goes to the sliding glass door when he wants to look out at the critters on the hill. He will bark at them, but not to let us know he needs to go out. If I say "want to go outside?" he will start dancing, then I know. It would be nice if he would bark when we want him to instead of just when he sees a critter or someone comes to the door.

I never learned to ride a bike, so it's a good thing I don't depend on that memory for happiness! LOL Years back DH and I got a bicycle built for two and went riding on it. Problem is he made me do all the pedaling. Not a good memory.

My favourite creative outlet is adapting something I find, e.g. from a skip etc. Recently I found a broken umbrella that had really nice butterflies on the design. I took it home and cut out the butterflies. They are now strategically pasted around my living room!

I just took two Vicodin. My body seems to be at odds with me today. I haven't accomplished one thing of any value today. Oh, I did make a cup of coffee. It is a good thing I can touch type, otherwise I would have to open my eyes. That would take more effort than I have.

Sit, stand, walk, stand still, lie down, get back up and do it all over again. It doesn't matter, I can't get comfortable. I really want to sleep. But if I do, I will be up all night and I am trying to get on a normal schedule. I have to get up and go to Winthrop tomorrow.
