The Haps

Well, we're almost through the first full week at the new house and all's well.

I had my surgery yesterday and am feeling way better than expected. A little twinge here and there, but nothing a little Tylenol with codeine can't handle. It was actually nice to have a little forced down time.

My realtor sent us a thank you gift, and it arrived on Thursday. I don't know how to use it but when I figure it out, I figure she's saved me about 4million dollars (plus tip) a year at Starbucks. Rockin'.

Now that we're moved in and the surgery's all done, it's time to start gearing up for the rest of the crazy summer.

This weekend I'll be in Arizona for my cousin's wedding. Most of my Dad's side of the family will be there, and they will be meeting my girls for the first time. Seeing as most of them have lived in New York or thereabouts for their whole lives, I won't be the least bit surprised if my long gone east coast accent rears its head by the end of the weekend.

After that it will be an endless parade of kiddy birthday parties, a Fourth of July party here, then maybe a weekend trip to St. Louis. Somewhere in there I'm planning a garage sale to get rid of all the useless shit I discovered hidden in the back of several cabinets at the old house.

I feel like this summer is going to fly by and it's barely started.

The only thing not going by quickly is the dogs' adjustment to a new place. Boy dog has shit in the house on a number of occasions. He is very lucky I love his dopey self, or I might have put someone else's address and phone number on the new ID tags.

I'm glad the surgery went well, that must be quite a relief for you.

I wish I was going to St. Louis, too. We lived there for two years and have some great friends there.

I'm glad the surgery went well and you are feeling good (keep up the codeine).

My husband bought me an espresso maker when we were dating because I used to visit the local latte cart (it was right convenient) at least twice a day. I started using it and saved me a bundle.

Unfortunately, I haven't made much use of it in the last couple of years and only recently got back into the habit. I hope to get it out, clean it, and use it again. I just duplicate the drinks (adding the various syrups etc) and it's so awesome. And yours looks a lot fancier than ours...and stainless steel too....hmmm.*distracted*

Anyway, you're so patient with the little scamp. Hopefully, THAT won't keep happening :).

I'll take your useless shit.

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
