Totally Not Beads Today (Well, Not Totally)

First, the heat has really been wreaking havoc with me and my schizoid body. I don't handle daily headaches well, I'm irritable and cranky and just not fun to be around. Ugh -- mean mommy. Then the cable connection just died this morning. No warning. It was there and then it was gone. We have the phone through the Internet, my computer runs off the Internet; my television is fed by the Internet and apparently so is my 12-year old. It was a rocky morning, but still salvageable.

Ariel helped me pull some things out of the soon-to-be bead studio and we set up a little work station to put together some more earrings. Everything I need to sort, assemble and finish all in one handy spot.

Then we realized that I just have to take it all down again on Friday to prepare for her birthday party. Harrumph. Grumble, grumble. Harrumph. Oh well, it's easily done.

And to top my day off, I went back to the bone doctor to tell him I've decided to let him do his thing. I will know the definite date for the first knee surgery by the end of this week, and I start "pre-hab" as soon as I call tomorrow and make the first appointment. I'm still looking at this with trepidation but I also know everything will be better by the end of the year. The thought of walking without pain is still exceedingly appealing. And instead of a lollipop, T-man got me a Blizzard. Hot day, cold ice cream! Yes!! Is there anything better than that?

Sorry you're suffering in the heat, I really dislike being hot myself! The Blizzard wounds like the perfect antidote.

Thanks, Marcia. We've had record setting days for weeks now. I wish we'd start setting different records, like maybe cooler temps. And yes, the Blizzard did the trick but I don't recommend it too often!

Hi Theresa
You're sure going through a lot...will be thinking of you, especially with the upcoming knee surgery.

Thanks, Cindy! I actually wrote out everything from now to the end of the year the other day, and just about fainted! I need to find that old Wonder Woman outfit!
