Photo Day




These are my grandpups.  We babysat them for a week when our daughter had to go out of town for business.

Molly is a 2 year old Chow who has had difficulty with her heart and her knee.  Our daughter and son-in-law got her from a shelter after their other little dog passed away.  I've never known anyone who had a red chow, only black, and those dogs were all a little scary and mean.  But Molly, not at all!  She is the sweetest thing!  And very well-trained.

Luna is a 7 month old Corgi.  She's adorable, but she's still a puppy, so she's very active and likes to chew on things.  She's working on potty-training, and she's making progress, but she isn't completely there yet.  But isn't she precious?

Random Tuesday

Hello!  How are all of you fine people?
I took my mom to see Cirque du Soleil Luzia over the weekend.  I got her the tickets for Christmas/birthday.  It was a fantastic show.  A couple of years ago, I took her to see something similar, and it wasn't that great, especially since I've seen two of the Vegas performances Ka and The Beatles Love, both of which were amazing.  I was so happy it was a good show!  I was really impressed with the combination of music, singing, humor, acrobatics, lights, and daredevilish feats of amazement!  Here is the trailer for a sneak peek at the show.

Have you been watching the old Geico commercials?  You can vote for your favorite!  The one I like the best is  "Collect Call."  Wehadababyitsaboy!  After that, it's "Spy."  Are you taking a zumba class? Cracks me up!  And the caveman isn't bad, either.  Two that I don't like are "Hump Day" and "Maxwell the Pig."  I think those two are so annoying. Which one do you like best?  You can watch them all at the Geico voting site and on YouTube (plus a few extras).

How's this for tragedy?  A chocolate spill!

This happened at a factory in Werl, Western Germany in December.  Liquid chocolate leaked from a tank onto the street.  I wonder if they were able to make enough chocolate before Christmas to stock the stores.

I'm going tomorrow to have my foot checked again to see if I can come out of the boot or not.  I have a feeling he is going to request an MRI, which I really can't afford right now, but... My foot is better, but not completely healed, so I just have that feeling.  And now my other foot is starting to hurt, probably because I "favor" it when I walk.

And now...



I am silently correcting grammar on Facebook!

Yes, this is for me when I pass on.

You've probably seen this on Facebook, but who can get enough of this cuteness?

Who could resist this face?

Hello everyone!  It's back to work and back to routine around here.  My first day back in the boot felt long, but at least we did not have students.  I did a lot of standing, though.  Today were are back with the students. Tomorrow may be difficult because I will have to make half a dozen trips to and from the library with my students.  I can get around fine; I'm just a little slower.  And uneven!  Ten more days before I see the doctor again.

Other than the boot and returning to work, not much is happening around here, so I'll just get to some funnies.

This cracks me up!

This was me yesterday morning:

They couldn't even spell birthday right, much less the name!

And last, but not least...

Have a great week, and link up with Stacy for some random fun!

Sunday Synopsis

The Swap (Nicole Graves Mysteries, #1)The Swap by Nancy Boyarsky
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Nicole Graves and her husband Brad agree to swap homes with a couple since Brad will be working in London for the summer, and the English couple will be travelling to L. A. Naturally, things do not go as planned. Someone is watching Nicole, and Brad is "watching" his assistant Brenda. The London couple never show up in L. A. Nicole realizes she is being followed by two flunkies who she believes have mistaken her for the woman whose house she is now living in. Neither Brad nor the police, believe her story. Little by little, worse things begin to happen such as a car blowing up with the neighbor inside, and a kidnapping. Maybe Brad will believe her now, but he seems to be engrossed in his own financial mishaps. Hopefully, Brad's new "partners" won't turn on him, and hopefully, the flunkies won't find Nicole.

The thing about this book is that it was so unreal that I kept expecting Sheldon Cooper to pop out of the book and yell, "Bazinga!" I seriously thought the writing was so poorly done that maybe the author meant it to be that way, like a Kill-Bill-type situation that you can't really take seriously.

It was just "OK," so I doubt I will read anything else in the series, or even anything by this author. But if you like Kill-Bill-ish type stories, melodramatic, unrealistic, lacking coherency, then you might like it if you take it for what it is.

Random Whatever-Day-It-Happens-To-Be

Happy New Year!

This is how I feel right now:
The New Year may already be here, but I'm still wondering what day it is, and it'll probably be that way for the rest of the week.

Here's something I thought about posting before the new year, but as you can see, I didn't do it in time!

How was your holiday?  Ours was good.  We are blessed with family, enough funds for some gifts, and time off to enjoy each other.  Here is half the family.  We had to do three different celebrations:  our own with just our kids, my husband's family, and my family.  It was a busy day for sure, but I enjoyed it!

On a different note - amidst the celebrating - I had my standard 0ver-age-50 colonoscopy.  Some of you probably know how fun that is!  Also, the day after Christmas, I  found out I have a stress fracture in my right foot, and I was given this lovely "boot" to wear for three weeks.
I'm not convinced it's going to help.

We stayed home on New Year's Eve.  We sometimes go to a Rockets game, but we were in our pj's early this year.  The game is always over about 9-ish anyway.  Mr. Forgetfulone was in bed before the countdown!  Even my 22 year old son was home by 12:30 AM.  Aren't we a fun group?  LOL!

And now...
I wish I'd posted this before Christmas, but you know how that goes!  And it's so true!

And this!
btdt

Wish I'd thought of this!

This is sooo me!
And before you go...
Happy new year!  Have a great week!
