Broken Lawnmowers

How is it 3 weeks have gone by?

Hell, T.o.M. is here again. I know the 2 lb gain will disappear. I just can't believe another 3 weeks have gone by.

It is way too hot here way too soon. 89, 90, 92 degrees. In April. Not my idea of fun in any way. And the dogs are just besides themselves. Especially Lo, who can't seem to get cool. Next paycheck, I have to buy a big old waterbed for her. Chad's old one sprung a leak over the winter.

Mr Listener and I are doing well for the most part, although he seems ultra paranoid about bugs and diseases (I haven't even tried to discuss the swine flu with him, good god). And we've both noticed that we have some misunderstandings either when he's lacking sleep or I'm in pain. So if we could just avoid those two things, we'd never have a disagreement. Haha. But I know, disagreements are a vital important part of keeping one's identity in a relationship, yadda yadda yadda. I just prefer the old hug and kiss part. The good thing is we both recognize this is happening and we both address it immediately.

My back gave me quite a twinge again yesterday after a day of feeling great. WTF. Seems it didn't like me planting sunflowers seeds or picking up the yard. And my "new last year" lawnmower is broken for the 2nd time in its short life. Mr Listener couldn't figure it out, though he tried so hard. I'm sure it was frustrating for him.

I've heard of a repair shop. Will have to bring it in. Meanwhile, the jungle grows...

"In the jungle
the mighty jungle
the lion sleeps tonight..."

and take a nap in the hammock already will ya?"


Oh yes, and my Sox swept the Yankers. And Tek hit a grand slam. That means folks, bases were loaded and he hit a home run. With one swing of the bat, he earned the team 4 runs on the board. It was a game-changing moment. So all of his critics can just shut up now. Ha!

Preach it sister!! This was one of the best series I've seen in a long time. I enjoyed each game so much and my broom was just happy to have a reason to come out of the closet - lol!

I saw on the news how hot is was up there already! I can't believe it. It's not even been THAT hot here. Take it easy, as much as you can anyway.

You're so cute when you talk baseball. I have no idea what you're saying, but you say it with passion. :)

I feel so bad for your puppies. They definitely don't understand why it is hot. On those few really hot days here in the summer, Buster always acts like I should be able to make it cooler for him. Sorry, buddy, no air conditioning for us in the Pacific Northwest. Not worth having it.

Your kitty is adorable.

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
