I'm debating making breakfast. Or is it lunch now? I can't decide whether I should put the leftover sweet and sour chicken in the oven or make pancakes.

Decisions, decisions.

Choose the one that seems more appealing.

The acupuncture went went better that I had expected it to go.
The Dr had spent many years in China learning the practice. She was good. I only felt one little sting. She took that needle out real quick. Inserted a smaller one. She helped me more in one session than the Chiropractor had been doing. I left his office in more pain than when I walked in. It wasn't working. He was good, tried to help me, but I think my size body scared him. He always made the comment "she's tiny, I don't want to hurt or break her bones!" Having my husband standing over him to make sure that never happened probably made him nervous.
I'm glad you're feeling better

Me, too, Munky. Now if you share that relaxation technique the doctor showed to you, it might increase Himself's life span...

What are you doing?

:roflmao: DH just got home from work, came in, and frantically announced, "There's a snake in my garage door!"

I grabbed my Martha Stewart tongs, and extracted the snake. It was beautiful, one I hadn't seen before, black and red striped, about 2 feet long or more. Not a garter snake or corn snake. Didn't have time to get a pic, DH was too freaked out. DH quickly stuffed the bottom of his garage door with plastic grocery bags.

No, long red stripes, not chunked up. It was beautiful though.

More I think about it, it was probably some kind of garter snake.

The look on DH's face was also priceless. Even after 30 years, I did not realize he was snakeaphobic!

Heh. I put a 6 footer in one of my colleague's desk drawers as I was cleaning out my desk. She has shared it several times in other people's desks.

Surprise!

When I was a wee one, my Mom got a plastic mouse that made the rounds. I'd find it in my lunch, Dad would find it in the deli drawer...round and round it went. I got "custody" when Himself and I got married and, somehow, it was sent on its way with his lunch and each of the kid's lunches and STILL survives! It now has a place of honor on a kitchen shelf because no one packs lunches anymore. Hmm, maybe I'll tuck it into Himself's underwear drawer...
