Bloggity, Gobbledy Gook

My brain is not functioning well enough to create any sort of coherent post, so more random ramblings it is!

1. Finally winter is behaving as it should. Rest assured that I will be complaining about how much I despise it sometime this year, but the lack of snow and balmy temperatures we've been having were ridiculous to say the least. This morning was chilly, frosty and beautiful - as it should be.
2. Making friends with all my American blogger buddies is making me want to take a U.S. road trip to visit you all. I've been through a few states, but mostly the ones on the top edge of the country (camping in Montana - awesome!). The husband has visited a few more than me, but one day we hope to have visited them all.

3. My apartment is in a horrendous state of disarray right now. There are half packed bins of Christmas decorations, cases of water, bags of clothes, bills, winter attire and flyers strewn about everywhere. Essentially there is a path between each room...God help you if you step off the path - you could be lost for weeks! Or at least till next Thursday at about 11pm when I'm running around cleaning like a mad-woman because we are having guests next weekend.

4. My tummy hurts today where I had the surgery. I think I've been pushing it a little, not resting enough. It seems really sucky because it's not like I've been doing anything really physical, I just find that being awake and sitting up for too long makes me feel exhausted and achy.

5. Have you ever acted out what you would say to someone who intimidates you, like a boss, or parent or something, if you ever had the chance to say exactly what you feel? I do that once in a while and currently there is someone in particular that I would just love to give a piece of my mind to.

6. I swear a lot. Way too much. I'm like a trucker. The thing is that I can turn it off and on like a tap if I need to. So why don't I just turn it off and leave it off you might ask? I really have no idea - it's not very feminine to have such a sailor mouth, hmmm, maybe I should have made it a New Year's resolution...nah, I never would have done it.

7. Tonight when I came home I walked in the door and took off my layers of outdoor winter clothes. Then I started peeling off everything else as I walked towards the bedroom, jumped in my jammies, put on the husband's slippers because I was too lazy to look for mine, grabbed a Pepsi and a Terry's chocolate orange and parked myself in front of the computer. It is 6:43 right now so I've been sitting here for an hour and 13 minutes. There are 2 more resolutions out the window.

8. The husband and I are trying to decide what to do about the whole doctor/surgery/negligence thing. Half of me wants to just suck it up and accept that this happened and keep trying to get pregnant with the specialist we have. The other half is screaming that we can't just let this go...there were some interesting developments in our meeting with above mentioned specialist - how can I just say it's okay that I'm missing body parts and could have died?

9. The notices that our passports are ready came in the mail today - we can go pick them up tomorrow. That makes me excited about our trip - only 5 weeks away!

10. I'm super tired - I may go have a quick nap before the husband gets home from work. Yes, a nap sounds delicious, have a wonderful evening.

Gigi said you are welcome to visit, stay in the guest house, and accept a parting gift of Pickens the cat.

LOL, thanks Gigi and Reggie! That all sounds wonderful, one small problem though...I'm allergic to cats - maybe a parting gift of another dog you've found who needs a home? That you're willing to part with of course!

I always rehearse what I would LOVE to say to someone that I am really ticked off's very therapeutic...I thought I was the only one who did that. I used to do it in front of my mirror.

I can understand your dilema about the whole doctor thing. My only concern about whether you decided not to do something, is that something this terrible would happen to someone else. Horrible that it happened to you. Should have never happened at all. Horrible if it happned again!

My house is a total disaster as well. Since Christmas, it has just been impossible to keep up. Maybe I should invite someone over, just so that the house would actually get cleaned.

I would be excited about taking a trip too. Do you need a bag boy? I could carry your bags for you wherever you go!

I will continue to pray for you, that your recovery will be speedy.

Love ya!

I think we should plan to meet up sometime! That would be TOO COOL. We could do it somewhere in the middle of where everyone is coming from. Why not?? We only live once! How about the Mall of America? I'm game!!!

Hey, the Mall of America, that would be great. The only problem is that you have to be completely specific of where you would have to meet because that sucker is huge! 88 football fields baby.

Actually your post is making me want to travel to Winnipeg. It's been years since I have been there, probably grade school was the last time. Hey, come on over the border anytime!
