B-O-R-E-D...and sleepy

So, I'm bored. Like really, really bored. The husband isn't at home today or tomorrow so I've been left to entertain myself. I was supposed to have a guitar lesson after work - however, I woke up today thinking it was Monday, so I left Ramona at home. Zig told me I could come over later tonight but I confessed that lately when I get home, it's all I can do to stay awake for a couple hours before going to bed at around 9 o'clock. I just can't seem to shake this virus I've got tailing me.
Since I got home from work I've called the Bahama Mama, had a nap, watched a movie, and sent a couple text messages. Wow. Maybe I should slow down - at this rate I'm liable to hurt myself.
So while I've been sitting here bored I've thought about a few things - nothing particularly interesting - just some thoughts...

1. I really like orange juice. I've always known this, but I often forget how much I do. But it has to be a certain kind - Tropicana Original no pulp - which costs about $6 per 2 litre jug. I've had 3 glasses since I got home today.

2. I think I want to paint our bedroom. About 2 years ago we painted it this dark, brownish/orangey colour - sounds gross but it really went with our furniture and stuff at the time. Now I hate it. And really, if we're going to be buying a house we'll have to paint it back to white eventually anyways, so why not now? Surprisingly the husband doesn't seem particularly thrilled about painting...

3. I have to go for more surgery in November. That's part of what my crappy doctor visit was about last week. When our specialist mentioned it to me the decision was made before he finished talking; I knew I would get it done. Of course, I asked the husband what he thought and he told me that whatever I decided was fine with him - but he knew what I would decide anyways. So November 15th I go in, unless they call me with a cancellation before that. Let's hope this one goes smoother than the last one!

4. I need to have a decent supper. We went and had our big grocery experience last week, and since then I have been surviving on cottage cheese mixed with sunflower seeds, orange juice, water and granola bars. Kind of defeats the purpose of stocking your kitchen with groceries, doesn't it? My body is crying for meat and potatoes and veggies - is anyone interested in cooking?

5. Fall is coming. I'm not very prepared for it this year, despite loving the season so much. It seemed like cute skirts and flip flops were only wearable for a month or so this year - and I'm not quite ready for sweaters and jeans yet.

6. My kitchen floor needs to be swept. I can feel grains of rice and little crumbs under my bare feet when I walk - ewwww. Guess I getter get on that.

7. I bought a new plant this weekend. It is a teeny tiny little 2" tropical that the husband has named Dixie. Originally he named her that because she was small enough to fit in a Dixie cup. But then I started calling her Dixie Normous, and now she is sort of a porn star tropical plant.

8. Um, and my last thought is that I'm tired. Very tired. So even though it's only 8:30, I think I'll go take a shower and curl up in bed - you can never have too much rest when you're sick - at least that's how I'll justify it to myself.

Good luck with the surgery!

Orange juice is great, but it does not last in our house - a 6 litre pack vanishes in a couple of days. Another good one is Cranberry and Raspberry. That goes just as fast!

Have a good sleep, hope you feel better soon. Repeat after me: I ROCK!

If you are bored you can always send me an email Ali!
Update on the MIL...when she got home from our camping trip she found her goldfish-which she had left with a neighbour to look after-had popped its clogs.

I actually write DO NOT DRINK on the juice in my fridge. I like apple juice in the mornings on the weekend. But some gremlins always drink it all before then. Actually they don't drink ALL of it, they leave half a glass in the container so I think there's some left.

There was plenty of Ramona time in there Zig! It's just that I play for a bit, then walk away and come back to her - it adds up to a lot, I promise!
Just because I'm scared of playing for you doesn't mean I don't play for me...but I AM a bad Ali - Mwahahahaha!

popped its clogs,yeah..gone to the great fishbowl in the sky. Hey you rocker I saw a film the other day Tenacious D and The Pick Of Destiny.
It had some rude bits in it so I could not let the kids watch it and got a little silly towards the end but also had some funny bits. it started off almost like a musical with non-stop songs which was great. Jack Black is a funny guy.
