yes, this is our humble pool. i spent all afternoon on that floatie right thar, right thar...
it was 100 heat strokin degrees according to my thermOmeter.
did i cave in and go indoors where it's a brisk 66 degrees? hell to the NO. i stuck it out on my floatie, intermittently dipping into the pool to cool off. so basically my afternoon was spent on-off on-off-on-off-on-off on-off-on-off-on-off and on and off the floatie. see those lil doors to the north of the pool? those are our bedroom doors. they open poolside. so at night if we wanna sneak in for a dippity doo, we can and no one will know! perdy cool, huh?
Diane came out and we both frolicked around cleaning the pool and erm, stuff.. by the time we went in the house it was time to start din din. ya know how frolicking in da pool makes ya ravished...
a bit later we noticed it was becoming perdy warm in our house so Diane, being the butch dat she is, checked out our central air conditioning unit only to discover the bastard was dead. dead as a door nail. nada. nuttin, honey. of course we called the landlord only to be informed some one would be out first thing in the morning.
FIRST THING IN THE FREAKING MORNING?
no way. according to our experiences here, that means he will arrive at some point
we'll be his last call in the day but we can lay bets it wont be first thing in the morning.
it's very, very warm in here. i could even say it is hOt. we have all the ceiling fans going full speed and if our lil house doesn't up and take off like a helicopter, it just might help keep it bearable in here. i dare not ask my sister to go over to her air conditioned
mansion house.. [her humble abode]
oh no, i mustn't... cuz we all know what she'd say... based on the last time we lost power. nope. we'll just stay here in our
hotter than hell steamin sauna lil toasty warm abode and make do. why, we can even turn on da fireplace if it's too COLD in here...
as i write this, there is thunder and lightening rumbling and rolling in our skies and we are under a tornado watch.. as we are about to get more storms. so even if by some minute chance that hell froze over and she called right now to BEG us to go there, we'd have to say no.
why, you ask? because we have a big ole wuss scaredy cat boxer who freaks the fuck out when it storms with thunder and lightening.
i can see Bella from here trying to hide on Diane's lap on the couch.. with her lil head buried.. believing no one can see her since her head is buried. yeah. she BE invisible. do you see a doggie? i DON'T see any doggie...
oh, what's that? she's looking up.. [snaps picture] she may look calm but her heart is racing, she's panting, and shivering like a fwightened wittle wabbit.. bless her.. uh oh, she's back under Diane's arm again..
ok, enough of toyin whitcha...
i went to the dr.'s today about me gimpy arm. he said the neurologist stated in her report that it could or could not be related to my injury. so on that note, he isn't going to do any surgery at this point because even if it were directly related, they like to wait a year before goin in, to see if the nerve will resolve on it's own. he took an x-ray and it showed further healing of the splinter, but it is still there, protruding more than it should be but less than it was prior. his prognosis? "cant work. see him in 4 months. until then, enjoy the time off." he also stated that i will most likely have a permanent disability/impairment when this is all said and done. at this point, i don't think it sounds like i will be able to return to OB nursing. and i don't know how i feel about that..
i sure could take that information and run with it, scare my self shitless and conjure up all kinds of worries...
but it'll pass.
who knows what will happen in 4 months? the world could end.. i could win the lottery.. or get lepercy and fall to pieces..
so why worry now..
only God knows what will happen in the near future.
n'est pas, mes amis?
