Tee Hee!

Okay people... first, I was BURIED in snow ON MY BIRTHDAY.  IN CHICAGO.  On the 29th of MARCH.  Has Mother Nature forgotten what time of year it is because we changed the daylight savings dates?!?!?

And then, I got to spend my birthday in the hospital with Ralph.  Looking at a foot with only 4 toes.  YUM.  Have I ever mentioned how much I HATE feet?!?!  And this is even talking the normal, 5-toed variety.  Joy.

BUT!  He got to come home today!!  Yippee!  Of course, he's hobbling a bit, but my god, he has NO PAIN.  If I had a toe cut off, I'd be in pain.  Wouldn't YOU be in pain?  But nope - for him?  Nada.  Lucky man.

I'm hoping that Ralph's return will change Grey's behavior some.  He's been, well... not so nice.  Today, he wasn't cranky... he was just plain CRAZY!!  I haven't seen him this goofy in a LONG time... and it was ALL day!!  He was near tears because he wanted GRITS for dinner.  Yep.  He cried because no one was JUMPING up to make them at that VERY MOMENT, and he ate almost two full packets of them.  Weirdo.  I offered him ravioli... he wanted GRITS.  Sometimes I wonder about that boy...  I guess he got a good dose of his Papa in him, since he was raised down south.  Who knows?!?!

AND!  I have actual tickets booked for a SOLO trip to Arizona the first weekend of May... I cannot WAIT!  I'm determined to come home TAN.  Last year when I was out there, the weather was like here in April...  So, no tan then.  COMPLETE.  DETERMINATION. THIS TIME.  Heh.

I have a meds followup tomorrow, because obviously?  I am NOT asleep, and it is after midnight.  And I have had to hit backspace 11,000 times already.  So, I'm awake, but not quite coherent.  Shouldn't that mean I'm TIRED?  Ah, but no... my body screams, "SLEEP IS NOT A WORD IN YOUR VOCABULARY!!!" almost every night.  So, off I go to see what comes next.  Can you believe I had a brief conversation over the phone with my doctor about Xyrem (which I found out is fucking GHB!!!!????) to make me sleep?!?!  I hope there's a step BEFORE that...  I mean, I guess I could sell it for income...  No, no... that wouldn't look too good while trying to get my CSI degree.  Heh.  HEH HEH, even.

I'm gonna go try and hypnotize myself to sleep with boring, late night TV.  Hope you all had a better past few days than me!!

XOXO

Happy Belated Birthday!! I must have missed the reminder on facebook. I hate that new set-up, I can't find half the stuff I used to see on there. I'm so glad Ralph is home!
