Earlier I tried to move my 8 year olds 3 tower/ building lego set and dropped it. I'm pretty sure my BP shot up to stroke levels. My child said that I have surely ruined his life and he was crying so hard that the guy outside fixing the hottub thought I beat him. If he had continued to yell at me, I might have started thinking about it (beating him that is)


yes, I fixed it

Just made a snow-cone and now will give some breaded zucchini strips a go out in the toaster oven in the garage so as not to heat up the oven. Love those things at Framer Brothers yum yum

I am watching MasterChef for the first time ever. We haven't been able to get this channel in a long time, so I never saw it before. Pretty good so far, but it is only eleven minutes in.

I'm having a glass of wine and getting over the shakes. I nearly got into a bad car smash tonight and I'm saying a whole lot of "thank you's" to the Big Guy upstairs for saving me. And thank you to Ford brakes. I had someone turn left in front of me and STOP in my lane. If I hadn't stood on the brakes HARD we'd both have been so much jam on the road. Lordy I was scared. I don't think I've been that scared when I've actually been IN an accident.

It was only a short hop from home so I didn't start shaking til after I got in. Now I'm just going to power down and enjoy being alive tonight.
