Global Warming?

Where did Summer go? Today it was rainy and cold. By cold I mean that it was only 54 degrees when I went to the doctor at 2:30 this afternoon! 54! When is it 54 in Sept. in Missouri? I didn't want my heater to kick on so I actually cooked dinner instead of making a sandwich or putting something in the microwave. I thought that maybe cooking would add enough heat to keep it off and so far it seems to be working. I mean, how would I explain having my heater on in Sept.? Surely someone would be asking about it, wouldn't they? Wouldn't the lady behind her desk at the electric company pull her pencil out of her bun and push her glasses back up her nose, look at the computer screen and ask "Why in the hell is she running her heater in Sept.?" My dogs would be outcasts in the wild animal kingdom if the foxes and raccoons found out that their "pet" was such a wimp so I cooked dinner and hope for the best.

Is this global warming? Something is screwed up here and I don't like it at all. I finally get back to work and then have to deal with cold ass weather on my day off? We are expecting sunshine and in the 70's tomorrow. I am almost ready to go to bed now just to be warm and to get this day over with. It wouldn't be a good idea though because it isn't even 9pm yet and that means that I would be fully awake by 3am and it would still be dark and cold and sucky and I would still be bitchy and complaining and wanting to call and wake everyone else up because if I'm up and having an awful day then everyone else should be up and being just as pissy as me. Phew. I didn't think I was going to be able to get that all out in one breath. Thank God I don't smoke. I wouldn't have been able to do it.

I have been reading "The Bloggess" at and she was talking about trolls. Her blog made me realize that not having any readers is really quite good for me after all. No readers equals no trolls. Good for me!!

If anyone reads my tiny blog then go read "The Bloggess" and I can guarantee you will have a very good time.

Hi Ho Hi Ho It's off to work I go!

I am so excited to be going back to work tomorrow! I mean it I really, really am.

I am not someone that can stay home for long periods of time.

You know how you will be at work and think about everything you could be doing if you weren't stuck at work? That was me until I went out on a six week medical leave and was not able to do anything at all for the first few weeks. Of course, pain meds helped with the boredom. Can't be bored if you sleep all of the time. Seems to help with weight loss too but I wouldn't recommend it because once you stop sleeping you do start eating again.

Then I had one week of feeling good but, with no money I stayed home. The cost of gas kept me from driving anywhere just for fun and so I was stuck at home watching TV. Only, I can only get ABC to come in clear enough to watch so I was forced to watch a stack of DVD's over and over. Then I bought "Wild Hogs" on e-bay and enjoyed watching that moving so many times am worried that I might wear it out. Now that is one funny movie. If you haven't watched it you really should and you need to watch the selection that the director and writer tell you what was going on behind the scenes while the movie is playing.

But, after that one week of feeling good and knowing that I was going back to work at the end of that week I was pretty excited. I was getting out of here! I was starting to that feel cabin fever was sneaking up on me but I was thumbing my nose at it! I was going back to work and be around people and not just my little doggies. I will survive! YES!

Then the day before I was to go back to work I woke up with the feeling like I was having child birth and the child was trying to come out of my hip! I ended up being stuck in the house for another week. I am still limping a little but I will make it to work tomorrow and I will be happy. Might not be so happy the next day but, tomorrow I will be happy!
