Today's blog is gonna be a little like making soup from the leftovers in your refrigerator...a little of this, a little of that. The soup has random ingredients and of course you hope that when all is done, it has a good flavor and will have people demanding more of it. Personally, I just hope you get through this blog without yawning...
And so it goes...I am in a Levothyroxine, aspirin, Prozac, Lotrel, Allegra, DayQuil induced coma. The first 5 meds are daily for the thyroid, blood pressure, stroke prevention, depression/panic disorder/OCD and allergies and the DayQuil is supposed to be attacking the newest virus who had the audacity to show up and party in my 54 year old body. One dachshund nurse on one side of the recliner, one dachshund nurse on the other side, a laptop, remote and a much-needed refill of coffee and water and we're blasting off from Recliner Central.
I went to the opening of the new Wal Mart yesterday because 1)I needed more Advil and Day/NightQuil and also to just flat-out check it out and observe any bargains that needed me. The old Wal Mart was in walking distance from the apartment. The new one requires taking the bus. Can I just tell you that I think the new Wal Mart is a heap of crap? It seems crowded(not as in people but as in aisle space), unorganized with aisles running in every which direction and I didn't feel the love nor the quality/quantity of goods at the other Wal Marts I frequent. Sigh. Gonna have to check the bus schedule and see if a bus runs to my favorite Wal Mart across the way in OFallon. After killing time in there for 3 hours, I walked over and got the Metro train and met up with husband at his stop. We took the bus home about 6:40 and had a short walk to the apartment. I looked up while walking and the sky was just brilliant with stars. Had it not been so cold I might have plopped myself down in the neighbor's yard and did some star gazing.
Is anyone as tired of Idol auditions and ready to get this show on the road with REAL contestants and singing? Sigh...maybe next week?
It looks like Grey's Anatomy is a rerun tonight and I don't see ER listed at all. The day/night I'm in the mood to recliner veg in front of the TV there is NADA.
Michael called and he is blessed with the same virus I am...I think some germy college student on campus gave it to him first and he brought it to me...well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! His sisters are still not employed and I'm ready to burn their birth certificates...
Getting experimental with supper tonight....have some chuck steak left over from the other night and think I'll cook(who am I kidding? DH will cook it--I don't have any spoons to use for supper today) it with snow peas and rice and call it stir fry.
Do anything special for the significant other for Valentine's Day? We used to go out to eat but it's definitely overrated with all the others out there clamoring for romance. DH is a chocolate freak...think I'll make him a French Silk Pie from scratch except for the crust(who am I to mess with the perfection of Pillsbury or Pet Ritz?)and make heavy horsey derves and fondue for supper.
Do you have grocery delivery service where you live? Our main grocery store here is Schnucks and for a $15 fee I can order my groceries online, make notes of particulars that I want that they might not already have prelisted, and they will deliver the same day up my 3 flights of steps to the apartment? So handy when you're without wheels. We've used it twice before with great results and I see a third order in my future...
Did you know the AKC(American Kennel Club) has a line of clothing out for dogs at Wal Mart? I nearly flipped when I saw doggie bath robes yesterday. Here in the real world, they get rubbed down with a towel although I DID see an article on the Internet that car chamois can be used for quicker drying of your dog. Just use it the same way as you use it on a car. I don't think the dachsies here are big enough to be chamoised off.
It's a wrap, kids. Mr. Sandman is taking over.
Have a great Thursday!
All About the Bean - After two years with our old year-round swim team, B and I decided we weren't quite happy with how things were going. The main team was in NN and we were...
