5 days a row!!!

Thanks to the generosity of my boss, I have the next 5 days off!! (Ok, I'm including the weekend, but every day counts here!!) SO what if I'm only getting paid for one 4 hour day...who cares?! I HAVE 5 DAYS OFF!! Yippeeee!!

I have another investigation on Sunday night. Can't wait! which reminds me..I need to order special batteries for my EMF meter.

Ok..lots to do and accomplish today so I'd better go! Peace!

The adventure continues..

Well...went to gastro dr on Wednesday and he said that the HIDA scan came out normal so it's NOT my gallbladder for sure! But, since I'm still having pain, he wanted me to have an endoscopy on Friday morning. That's done. Except I have no idea what turned up because he left right after he did it. I'll go see him in 2 weeks. IF the pain weren't getting worse, I would just deal with it. Now that he cannot figure out what's wrong with me, he's made it his mission to figure it out. Unfortunately, this takes up alot of my time and money (can you say $40 co-pay?!) and I've got things to do, folks!! Oh, and to top it all off, while I was awakening from anesthesia, I had an irregular heartbeat that they're insisting I have checked out. STOP THE MADNESS!! LOL!!

It's been a dreary weekend here in the Northeast. Rained Saturday. Cloudy and gloomy today. Had a nice dinner last night: seared sea scallops in jerk sauce and crab fried rice. Herman also had a lobster. (I passed on the lobster..was too full from everything else.) Watched stupid movie, "Lost Junction" with Neve Campbell. Still can't figure out the point to the movie or if it was a drama or comedy. Very confused. Watched "Jersey Girl" on Friday night. What a good movie! Funny! Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler (who I just love) and George Carlin as Ben's blue-collar half in the bag dad. And some little girl as Ben's daughter...she was adorable and funny! Needless to say, since no one died (or was brutally injured) in the first 5 minutes, Herman wasn't that interested in it. Me, I just sat on the couch busting a gut laughing! (Hmm..nice imagery, isn't it?!) Oh yeah...did I mention that Ben Affleck is in the movie?!

Well...I should go and do more stuff around the house..seeing as there is lots of "stuff" that needs to be done. Poor Herman..he promised The Boy that he'd take him to see a movie today and The Boy chose "Seed of Chucky"!! maybe I'll go see "Finding Neverland" with Johnny Depp..wooooo hooooo!

Peace, everyone!

Opening of Bill Clinton's Library

Am I the only one or did you also think that the PERFECT memento that should have been hand out at former Presidant Clinton's library opening should have been a cigar?!

Hangin' out..

Been awhile since my last post..not too much goin' on here! (And somethimes that's a GOOD thing!) Had a HIDA scan for the pain that still exists in my upper right side that they cannot say for sure is my gallbladder..or not. This has gotten to be such a circus...if I'm not at the doctor's, I'm having yet another damn test. It's gotten to the point that I'm just ready to say, "I'll deal with the pain...I'm obviously not dying."

The Big One (Jackie) is being a total pain in the neck. She treats our home like a hotel. IF and WHEN she comes home, she helps herself to whatever food is around and then plops down on the couch and falls asleep. She gets up, leaves her mess, jumps into the shower (MY shower) and leaves another mess there. In between she manages to argue with at least 1 or 2 other family members so that NOW everyone is pissed off. Then she leaves for work, boyfriend's, girlfriend's..wherever...and doesn't bother (most times) to call and let us know that she won't be home. Oh yeah..she drives around in OUR car ('s our 3rd car that we don't really use but it's the principle of the matter) and expects us to take care of it when there is a problem. ALL FOR FREE. She doesn't pay us a dime. Now...before ya'll start..I KNOW THAT YOU CANNOT BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF UNLESS YOU LET A PERSON TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU. So..this is my fear..if I throw her out, she's gonna start to use again. Yes, irrational, I know...and enabling, to some extent. But I just can't bear to go thru that again. Arggghhhhhh..OK...done.

On other fronts, TSPR is looking for an indoor investigation to do. I really need to get my reports in for the 3 investigations I already darn busy, tho. Herman and I may go to a new tapas and wine place in town..sounds good, doesn't it? I read the menu last night and it all sounded so good. Besides, they have sangria, the ultimate "happy juice"!!

Work is going good. I like my job. I do almost everything except run service calls!! (I work for a local HVACR company.) I order parts, run parts, schedule, do sales, dispatch, file, answer name it, I probably do it. My boss and I get along like brother and sister. We fight, call each other names, tell bad jokes, share brother and sister. His wife is a doll...and she's going to Heaven for putting up with him. He is neurotic, anal and has a bad case of OCD! I have NEVER in my 43 years ever met such a compulsive neat freak! Everything MUST be lined up properly or he freaks out! It makes me laugh...and you can upset him so easily! The UPS guy is always moving the security cameras to face a wall, the electrician messes up the pillows on the couch and I re-arrange the zillion pens he keeps on the so-called "showcase"...Such fun!!

I hope all is well with everyone of you..Peace!

A great entry by someone else!!

I found this over at John's journal, Grace Kept Me from Losing It. I got such a kick out of it and I wanted to share it with people who may not have seen it. Please stop by John's journal and say "hey!"...He'll be happy to say hi right back at ya!

My favorite journal entry title today was over at Amy's Hippies in Yuppieland. If you read it, you'll see was hysterical and pretty much sums up the way alot of us felt today.

Please stop over at Brian's Becoming a Firefighter and check out pictures from his wedding. Looks like he had a great time! And what a beautiful bride!!

Well, that's all I have for tonight..Peace!

While you're in the voting mode..


Would you check out the Tri-State Paranormal Research website and if the mood swings you, would you vote for us in the Paranormal Vortex at the bottom of the page? There is also a very cool picture of Bannerman Castle illuminated by the moon in the background...really spooky!
