Too Much Time on my Hands

I have too much time on my hands. I am going to have to buy some paint and start painting my house to keep my mind on things that it should not be on.

The only change in someone's mother and daughter and friend is not a good change. I believe there is something to that saying "hope for the best and prepare for the worst" So many people are hurting over this tragedy. I believe before the accident she was suffering emotionally. I have to believe that God felt her pain and he reached down and put his arms around her.

Yesterday our community was hit with another horrific tragedy. A school bus returning to high school flipped off an interstate overpass. As of today 4 children are dead and another 6 or so are still in the hospital, some in critical condition.

Queenie is going with 2 of her girlfriends to Birmingham tomorrow for a wresting match. She and the other 2 girls are Mat Maids. It absolutely scares me to near panic to let her go. I have no reason not to, but with all the stuff happening so close to me. I want to put her in a cage so I can protect her. Of course I know that's not going to happen, and I have no logical reason not to let her go. I wonder if she would notice me tailing them???

I cooked last night and everyone survived. I am going to try it again tonight. This time I'm cooking from scratch, nothing from a box or can. Trickster says she is sick but I believe she would just say anything to get out of eating what I cook :-)

Take Care All!

Prayers needed

Today I am somber. I have a friend who was involved in a horrific car accident last night, she might not make it through this. The Doctors have said that it doesn't look good. Without saying her name, I'll just ask that anyone reading this say a prayer for her and her family.
God Bless you friend!

    An emotional outburst may strike....

    I really don't believe in Horoscopes but I do enjoy reading them. As soon as I started reading today's horoscope I started laughing and miraculously the laughter didn't turn to tears.

    Thursday November 9th (Aquarius) An emotional outburst may strike within or near your family today. I think this one is off by a day or two. The world is asking for a whole lot more than you're ready to give. See if you can duck out of it. Did I say yesterday that I was looking for a hidy hole? A partnership that's founded on a genuine trust is a prize. Wait for someone who deserves yours. I have been doing this for 5 years now. Oddities and peculiarities hold your gaze today, enrapturing you with departures from the norm. I keep thinking back about a wet dream that I had last night, it was odd and peculiar and it is keeping my attention.

    Maybe there is something to this Horoscope stuff, maybe it's just off by a couple of days.

    Mom's in town and she is already asking what we plan on doing tonight. Aunt J just called and said there is a new bar that we have to check out. The bartender of one of our favorite watering holes has opened up her own bar. I just can't figure out where this bar is based on Aunt J's description. I'll check with Trickster and The Man.

    Now for the Bitching. I went to GI Joes last football game last night and it's not the game that I'm going to Bitch about, it's the stupidity of some people. One of the Mother's of one of our players was there. I don't really know her. I know she lives in my neighborhood, she is divorced, her older son goes to school with Queenie and he is one of the star football players at her high school, and I know that she was staggering drunk at the football game. When she first came up and started talking to me she seemed a bit disheveled. The more she talked to me I realized that she wasn't just unorganized in her thoughts but she was drunk. One of the other mothers told the head coach that she was drunk and he said he would invite her son out for ice cream so that she would not be driving with him in the car. When I left she was parked right beside me. Some of the other ladies were there trying to persuade her not to drive. I offered to drive her car and let Mama drive my car, that way her car wouldn't be left there overnight but she wanted no part of that. I told her that sometimes people make mistakes and that if I were ever in this situation, I hoped someone offered to help me out but again she said no. I told the ladies good night and went home. I hope she made it home alright. The really sad thing is that last nights incident will probably get back to her older High School son. I can only imagine the embarrassment.

    Now something good! I had lunch with freaky Jewels today. I love her dearly even if she is a freak. She is one of those people that you can just walk in to her house unannounced and her greeting would be something like "hi freak, what are you doing here? Do you want a diet coke". She doesn't know it but when I got up this morning I thought my hair looked so good that I didn't even brush it. She would just laugh if she knew it. I think she may have done that a time or two.

    Oh Oh Oh - I am just so darned proud of myself. Trickster taught me how to link a name! If your reading this Trick, I'll trade you some brussel sprouts that have been in my freezer since January for some spaghetti. I'm sure the Brusselsl sprouts are fine but I'll check the expiration date if you want me to.

    Now for some random thoughts. Queenie was inducted into the National Honor Society, GI Joe is still struggling in school. We will be taking a cab tonight, I have to get up way too early in the morning because Mama bought some charity ticket that gets us into Parisians for some shopping before the store opens up. I'm only going because I'm nice like that. My co-worker has a camel toe big time.

    Just a Thursday

    Yesterday was Norma Jean's Birthday and I took her out for drinks and dinner. I am trying desperately to get her out of her house and away from her ex-husband. In my eyes he is just plain scum. Poor Norma Jean can't stand to be alone so she keeps letting this creep in her life. Why can't she be as picky as I am?

    If any of you readers out there are thinking about going to the Jazz Factory for dinner - Don't. I took Norma Jean there for dinner and I was so disappointed. The food was just so, so. Service was good though so I tipped our waitress well.

    Then after dinner we went back to the local downtown bar and ran into Trickster and the Man.

    Was home by 10:00.

    Mama is in town for the weekend so I guess, I better get ready to party. Aunt J, Trickster - I'll be looking for some backup. She is a season ticket holder for the Broadway theater league. I must admit, that I like it!!! Her season tickets are second row from the stage, dead center. She is seeing Hairspray Saturday night and I suppose she will be taking Norma Jean with her for her birthday.

    Only 28 days left till NYC. And I found a really nice slum for us to sleep in. This slum is only $128.00 per night in Manhattan vs the other slum that we were going to pay $225.00 per night. Life is good.
