I've been getting more and more tense and stressed lately, and my neck and shoulders have been hurting so badly I figured I'd better do something about it so I had a great massage with this sweetheart therapist yesterday, and then today I had an appointment with a chiropractor. When I got there the nurse said, "Hi Jacqui, we're so sorry but Dr. Ira hurt his back." I asked her what happened and she said, "Oh, he was moving a refrigerator." What? This is a chiropractor for Fifi's sake. What was he thinking? "Oh la la la la la la I just had back surgery, la la la la la, I think I'll lift this big huge heavy REFRIGERATOR???" I am going to tease him mercilessly about this tomorrow. Nut butt.
When I was leaving the building I asked this cute looking young guy in the elevator is he was having a funky day and he said, "Yeah. I just spent two hours in my doctor's office waiting for a meningitis shot and when it was finally my turn they said they were out of vaccine." Esther's having a bad day, her poor daughter has to transfer schools for the last two months of her school-year, because they moved a few blocks away and that puts them in this other school's zone. She really tried to fight them on this but there was no way around it. Andrea was crying because she loves her teachers and has to leave her friends. She's only seven, how mean is that? Also my phones blew out for some unknown reason. Thank God DSL works. The cats ripped open two of our screens and Harry climbed out the second story window and ended up on the roof again, and Mo peed at me, not once, but twice. It might have been one of the Mo's and then the other Mo, I can never tell, they're twins and they don't like collars. Then Scott called and said he was having a really hard weird day at work. How about you guys? How's it going out there?
I'm watching a car chase on the TV, obviously these guys are having a bad day, three armed robbers...oooh woah their tire blew out and fire is coming out of the rim, and now he's slowing down, looks like they're screwed, the whole back of the car is on fire and the cops are getting out and drawing their guns. This happens a lot around here, it's like some kind of weird sport, watching this on TV. I have the volume off and I'm listening to John and Ken on the radio describing what's happening, they're so funny. Oh well, the whole car is on fire now and the guys are getting out. Cops are arresting them, making them put their arms up and walk backwards, I think one guy got shot, wow, so sad.
Last night I was sitting on our little front porch and going through some mail while Beau was putting away some fun groceries we'd bought at a Japanese market. I must have heard or sensed something so I looked to my right and saw what looked like a huge cat sitting on the fence between my property and our neighbor's. I said something like, "Hi Kitty Kitty", and when it turned to look at me I realized it was a raccoon. It had the cute little masky face and was so pretty and fluffy. I talked to it some more, never dreaming it would climb down the fence and come right up to me, which is what it did.
I was so excited, it was so cute and it came so close to me. I'm talking about three feet away. I was also a bit scared, poor city girl that I am. I got up slowly from our rocking sofa thing, made my way to the door, opened it and grabbed a bowl of dry cat food. I set it down and Mrs. Raccoon Mommy (we could tell she was a Mama because she had big nipples) proceeded to eat every single piece with her hands. So soooooo adorable. Then she looked at us and slowly ambled off. Thinking she might come by again tonight we put some more food out and sure enough, right at the same time, there she was. I got some pictures but I don't know when I'll have the time to put them up.
Look at this great hat I bought on eBay. I swear I could spend the rest of my life sitting in this chair shopping. Ebay is heaven.
