I’m still alive!
I don’t really like complaining about my health, since there are people who have so many more problems than I do, and I just have the weird everlasting bug that’s going around. I was feeling lots better for about eight days, but now it’s back with a vengeance. I’ve been so poorly I haven’t even been playing MapleStory very much. I’ll leave it at that.
I’ve been harvesting tomatoes! I actually had enough at one point to make a small pot of spaghetti sauce. I’ve still got a few ripening on the vine.
In other garden news – my aloe vera plant is sending up bloom shoots! I’ve never seen an aloe bloom, so it will be interesting. I’ve got four large spikes coming up. I can’t wait to see how they look in full bloom. The plant itself is huge, and I planted it as a small, five spike plant. Below is one of the spikes.
Let’s see. The kids and Dea went back home the day Brock left to go back to Afghanistan, but they’ve been back a few times. They were here over the weekend, mainly so Bryce could babysit while Dea was out until all hours of the morning. I fear there’s a bit of advantage being taken – but she pays Bryce to watch them, and he wants the money. I think we are supposed to take care of the kids all weekend long this weekend while she goes to Texas to pick up her dogs. I’m sure that will be a blast. Piper must say “I miss my momma” about a million times each hour that her mom isn’t here, and it’s really very annoying. We’ve taken to ignoring her when she says that, or “Where’s my Momma?” after we’ve told her several times. Now we just say “Where did we tell you she was?” or “Where do you think she is?” She’s old enough to remember what she’s been told, and most times we think she says it just to hear herself whine about something. Child never stops asking.
I’ve been going to the dentist to get the much needed work done on my teeth. Friday I got a blue filling. The tooth needs a crown, but we just did the build up Friday. I’ll go in a few weeks for the crown prep. The blue filling, I take it, is a heavy duty polymer or something. The decay was really bad and went nearly to my jaw bone. It never hurt me, and I never even knew it was bad. A corner had chipped off, so I knew that had to be repaired, but I had no idea it was as bad as it was. The decay wasn’t even on the back of the tooth, where it had chipped off. Even the X-ray of it didn’t make it look as bad as it was. It looked like it would be a simple filling replacement. So, I guess I can say I got a new Bluetooth on Friday. Heh. I slay me.
Just Wondering …
If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?
