My Today is Different Then Your Today

I brought my new car back to the dealership for a small warranty issue. I told the Service Manager at the body shop if he could get the car done "today" I'd leave it with them because I could drive my mother's car for the day. He said, " yes we could do the work today." So, I leave the car with them. After work I drive to the body shop and he looked surprised I was there. I said, "so is my car here or did you drop it off over at the dealership. " He said "your car isn't ready". I said, "well I'll just pick it up and I'll drop it back off some other day" because I couldn't drive my mother's car anymore this week because she needed it. The Service Manager told me I couldn't drive it because the bumper had been removed. So off I go back to the dealership to pick up a loaner car. I was sad. I wanted my car back. So my point here is. When the Service Manager told me the car could be repaired "Today" I thought he meant the same day. I guess I was wrong. Oh well. I want the bumper repaired so I have to deal with it. I just wish people would say what they mean.
Have a Super Wednesday!

Prayer's Please

I'd like to ask everyone to say a pray for Jennifer, her mom, Joreen and her boyfriend, Larry. They're all going through some tough times right now and need all the prayers for healing that they can get. We all know how powerful prayer is.

My Husband's Hip!!!

..............not in the "I'm a cool dude, hip", but his real hip. He had his hip removed on Tuesday and a new improved hip installed. The way he explained sounded like he was getting a trailer hitch installed. I kid you not. He said............."the doctor is going to cut off the ball part of my hip, drill a hole down the middle of my femur and stick a rod in it and attached the ball". Now doesn't that sound like a trailer hitch installation? Yep, I thought so too.

I guess the most important thing in all of this is MORPHINE is a good thing! Bless his heart! He's got probably a 8-9 inch incision beginning right above his pelvis (yeah, they did something to that too) and it extends down about 5 inches on the front of his leg. He's got 18 staples..... OUCHIE!!!

The doctor said when he got "in there", the ball of his hip was rotated rather strangely (inward instead of outward) and it was difficult to do what had to be done. They put a boot on his left foot so they could manipulate (aka.... have something to grab onto to jerk the hip around) his hip.

Now I'm pretty smart and I pretty much knew he was going to be in quite a bit of pain, but they forgot to mention that they had probably sprained his ankle also!! SWEET! He woke up this morning and couldn't move his ankle and it was killing him................they x-ray'd it to make sure that while they had fixed his hip.........they hadn't broken his ankle in the process......not a good thing.

Pain and drugs can make people very insensitive to the needs of others.........ME! It's hard to be sweet, loving and humble when your drug and pain crazed husband is being an ASS.........
I put off going to the hospital this morning as long as I could because I wasn't sure I could handle the cold, deadly stares and drooling.

Then I found a copperhead just inside my front door this morning at 6 a.m. as I was walking half asleep to the front bathroom. Not believing what I was seeing, I just shook my head and said..... " just CAN'T be a snake". I turned around, went back into my bedroom and proceeded to wash my face and get dressed, thinking the whole time........"what if I go back and there is nothing there". Sure was gone. I HATE SNAKES and from what I understand from my neighbors, we live in copperhead country (that and bobcats). I immediately got on the phone and called a friend of ours and this was the conversation.

"Victor..........can you come over like NOW!!!" "There's a #&$)#ing snake in my house and I don't know where the #&$) it is and I can't bring Bud home from the hospital tomorrow if there's a #&$)ing copperhead in the house and I can't find it and none of the physical therapy folks will come if there's a copperhead in the #&$)ing house either or do you think I should call the police and tell them what's going on and I can't remember my neighbor's #$&)ing phone number because she kills these things all the time".

"aaaaaaaaahahahahahaha.......I #&$)ing hate snakes Sandi.................(silence)."

"Victor.............get your #&$)ing ass over here NOWWWWWWWWWW DAMMIT!

"Okay, sweetie I'll be right there".

So Victor shows up and I'm standing in the front yard with a flashlight (it's broad daylight), my camera and a pack of cigarettes...........I left the lighter in the house........dammit and I was wishing I had some morphine.

We start our search. I have a box in my hallway with a fake christmas tree in it I've been meaning to put in the attic and I kicked the box away from the wall and shout "THERE IT IS"......#&$) that's not a #&$)ing copperhead". I'm feeling pretty stupid now. It's a salamander. You of those coppermanders. You find them all over Texas. Anyway...... after Victor stopped laughing and could breath again, he goes into the bedroom where the little critter has fled and goes to pick the little bastard up and it tried to bite him. Victor jumps about 6 feet in the air and then tries to act like nothing happened. It was a catch and release deal....... coppermander is back outside where he belongs.

I finally get to the hospital a little after 11 a.m. and very quietly open the hospital door and peek in, fully expecting to see my husband propped up in bed with his head rotating on his shoulder's and green vomit spewing from his mouth. Instead, I was greeted with a smiling husband....albeit a little on the pale side, but he was smiling and sitting in a chair next to his bed. All the IV's and other tubes had been removed (no more morphine!!!). We have progressed to Vicotin for pain and almost immediately the cold, deadly staring and drooling have stopped.

I get to bring him home tomorrow..........wonder what the weekend will bring?

Have a Great Weekend!!!!

Is the Easter Bunny a Fraud?

I couldn't believe it when I saw it and hopefully I can get this message out to everyone before they strike at your house and terrorize your kids. Plus, seeing as how Jace and Jennifer still believe in the Easter Bunny and all kinds of magical crap, I can make it easier for them as well! the past, it seems the Easter Bunny has either been morphing into other animals, or other animals have locked the Easter Bunny in a closet and having been fraudulently parading as the Easter Bunny. So if you see any of these nefarious fellows in your neighborhood, call 9-1-1 and tell them there is an imposter outside your house and see how fast the police show up on your doorstep (*snicker*)!!!
Have a Great Weekend!

Sunday's after church Lar and I go out for breakfast.
I ALWAYS order a ham and cheese omelet. ALWAYS!
If it's not broke, don't fix it I say.
However, the past year I've been waking up craving a Belgian Waffle. I have no idea why, I just have. I'm like a broken record. "Larry, I'm ordering a Belgian Waffle when we go out for breakfast". Predictable as the day is long when it's my turn to order I say, "I'll have a ham and cheese omelet please" and Larry shakes his head. So, last Sunday I did it! I actually ordered a Belgian Waffle. I was sad. I didn't like it. It was soggy and the only good thing about it were the strawberries and whip cream. I was so craving my good ol' ham and cheese omelet. I can't wait for Sunday to get here so I can get back to the usual. Am I alone here? Do you always order the same thing at a restaurant you frequent?

The Coolest Chameleon!

This video brought to you by me.
Using the knowledge from
B.E. Earl .

Thanks B.E.E

Need your help with the "EMBED" command

I am having difficulty pasting the embed command to post You Tube video's on our blog. I've been "Lucky" maybe twice to get it to work.

I copy the embed line and when I paste it over here I only get

object height 344 width movie value blah blah blah

I'm fairly knowledgeable with HTML coding but I can't get that whole line to paste.

How do you get that entire embed line to copy and paste. I know the control "C", control "V" thingy. I know the right click copy, right click paste. Nothing works. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG??? Can anyone help?

Happy I'm a spaz Thursday!
