Mostly cloudy up here the last couple of days--chilly with rain off and on.
I had forgotten to show you the other item I got with my JetPens order because it is a kind of surprise for Leah and I had already stuck it over by the door for her. She's been too busy to read the blog, I'm pretty sure. Anyways, she loves these corner clips, but hates pink. I kept the pink one in the last package and she said if I ever bought any more...LOL! So, I picked up another package and I'll keep the dreaded pink one. ;)
Sprinkled some catnip on Karma's little carpet square. She will be sitting quietly...
...and then suddenly paw the heck out of it. After this she did that cat jack-in-the-box thing they do bouncing randomly about...and then laid back down on top of it again like nothing happened.
Wanted to tell you that my dad made it home from hospice already this weekend! Good grief, it was just three weeks ago today that he had his hip replaced! Wow! He's really one determined 90 year old, eh? He'll have rehab come to their home three times a week and they're getting him a walker where you can sit if you need to so he can go farther without worrying. Cool! He's doing just great!! And he is soooo happy to be "out of prison"--LOL! Thanks to everyone for your healing thoughts and prayers!!! :):)
I was never good at meshing with the hospital type routine, either. Dad is kind of a night owl, too. They tell you when to get up, when to eat, when to shower, when to poop, when to sleep--ROFL! I didn't fit in when I was just a regular night owl and not the crazy, erratic sleeper I am today. They always wanted to give me sleeping pills before--hehe! I'd drive them crazy these days. They'd probably give me something to knock me out--LOL!
Speaking of sleep...I have been going to bed early (between 6-8pm) and waking up in the middle of the night (2-3am) the past couple of nights. Sleeping pretty decently, too. Actually starting to feel more human--LOL! Yay! In the past few days I washed clothes, got three letters I owed done & in the mail, and made a card & got that in the mail, too. So, I am definitely starting to feel a little bit functional. Nice! About time!!
Watched a 70 year old Chubby Checker on Dancing With The Stars. Goodness! Am I that old that Chubby Checker just turned 70! Well, Paul McCartney is 69 and just married a 51 year old. I hope he is much luckier in love this time than he was with number two. They got married on what would have been John's 70th birthday, I heard. Uffda! I remember sitting on the carpet in front of the console TV watching Ed Sullivan and getting chills...(no, I wasn't a screamer)...taping pictures of John all over the inside of my junior high locker, while most of the girls adored Paul. But over the decades Paul really grew on me. Paul was always the optimist...the happy one. This wedding proves he still is the hopeful one who believes in love and the goodness of people. I think I have grown to adore him, myself. He's still cute, too! ;)
Best wishes, Sir Paul!
May we all have a good, productive week. :):)
