Just trying to do my job here

6 days since my last post! How time does fly when you're:
  • fighting unbelievably bad traffic going to doctor visits that don't exist because you canceled them a month ago and forgot to cross them off your calendar;

  • driving people around who barf in your car while fighting unbelievably bad traffic;

  • too busy to eat and/or drink anything until 5 pm;

  • staying up too late knitting because that's the only time I have to do it; and

  • trying to function with 2 of 3 toilets in the house clogged up.

Also, Charlotte is sick, the dog tore a ligament in his knee, and we have to represent ourselves in court on Jan. 31 to try to get Charlotte's Medicaid waiver back that has been denied.

On the plus side, yesterday and today have been much more normal. Hattie and I made a marathon trip to the grocery store this morning and got enough food for at least a week's worth of homecooked meals. The dog is up and around and seems to be feeling much better. I got enough sleep for the last night or so (what a difference THAT makes!), and the toilets are unclogged, thanks to the tireless efforts of our resident toilet unclogger. (That would be Tim. I am excruciatingly happy to adhere to traditional gender roles if it means I never have to touch a toilet plunger.)

I have also learned two three important new things:

  • our grocery store offers a (NEW!) Orange County Choppers cake;


  • if you can't get your toilet to flush, squirt in some dishwashing liquid and then try -- it works! and

  • how to do lists in html.

Never a dull moment at our house.
