Belated Happy Mother’s Day to all of you! I hope you know how much your existence is very much appreciated. The world will literally stop dead on its tracks without all of you. Who will find all the missing socks, shirts, pants, sense of humor, and heads if all you lovely people aren’t around? It was a normal day for me. No day off to speak of, but that’s totally my choice. If I have to wait for anyone to do the dishes, do the laundry and clean the house, we will all live in a pig sty. Also, I don’t tolerate clutter and messes all that well, so I’m the one who suffers the most if the housework gets neglected. I did all that and managed to schedule some posts on the blog.

Good news! My cast is off! Good Lord. You can’t imagine how good it feels to have it off. On Wednesday night, as I was getting ready for another night of itchy, smelly, restless sleep, I consulted with my cousins (who are nurses, btw) and asked them if Urgent Care would take my cast off if I told them I’m 60% sure I have gangrene on my foot (long story that involved a metal chopstick). They said it’s probably not advisable but try anyway. I went there at 8 at night and eventually got seen at 4 in the morning. I was determined. I figured  I can’t do another week of this smelly hell. So I sat there and waited. I didn’t get much sleep, so I called in sick on Thursday. It feels soooo good, you guys! I’m still walking a little daintily, but anything is better than being in a cast.

My Mother’s Day celebration is pretty much what we’ve been doing every year. Husband takes me to the bookstore, I get to play queen for a day or two, then it’s business as usual. We had lunch on Saturday and had a backyard barbeque on Sunday. All in all, a great weekend. There was a moment of sadness there because it was our first weekend without the choice of heading to the lake. But it’s time to move on and I’m helping my husband cope with that. Anyway, I hope you all had a great weekend.



I had such a weird reaction to this book. My review will be up this week. I’m slowly getting into the groove of things again, so expect more posts from now on…or not. Lol.

Have a great week, everyone!
