mixed reviews

My body feels much better today. I woke up last night at 3am or so and wandered into the kitchen to gargle salt water. This morning my throat was much improved, so that much have done something. Oh, and the cat woke up with me, mistaking it for morning, I shouldn't wonder. She yawned as she slunk into the kitchen and her eyes narrowed as if to say "I hate Mondays." just like Puss in Boots in Shrek 2. I thought of that and nearly choked mid-gargle. Hmmm, I must sound completely obsessed with my cat. Sadly, that's probably true. *shrug* There are worse fates.

The body may be better, but I can't seem to focus the old bean on anything at all. I'm supposed to have a pretty important call with my boss today. My voice may be up to it, but I don't know that my brain is. It's a good thing she's a patient woman.

Two things are keeping me happy right now: 1) K did his share and then some in keeping the house going and seeing that I had all I needed to be comfortable yesterday, and 2) I talked to my bro on Saturday - the one in the Army! He surprised everyone and showed up last week in MI sometime. He got leave at last! He wants to come visit us and he's thinking of driving down with my other bro in tow. That would make my day. Yay for the men in my life!

Don't worry. I'm obsessed with my cat, too. I think my husband gets jealous sometimes. haha. Just kidding...but I might love on Moses just a bit too much. Good luck with getting some work done. I'm in the same boat. I really don't want to write this paper...so I'll start writing later. I have more reading to do anyway.
Love you!

The men in your life are totally sweet. Especially your husband--what's his name? Kyle? Keane? Keegan? I can't remember--it's been years since I've seen him.

Listen up, Chuck. I've *TRIED* to comment on your blog, but you decided that it was most pragmatic to only allow registered blogspot users to do any commenting. So I will remain unheard-from until such concessions (anonymous posting) are made.

Your move, Chaz.
