I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

I'm needing stronger pain pills.

Mark woke me up this morning, as usual, bringing me my coffee, love tapping my butt (last time I said slapped...got all kinds of feedback) and told me that Trouble was outside. This happens every morning. Sometimes I take my time getting something on and going outside to get Trouble, because chances are he isn't going anywhere. Sometimes, depending on my dream or depth of sleep, I panic, throw something on and go running for Trouble. This morning was one of those mornings.
I ran out the back door, twisted my left ankle on 1/2 a stone and went down on my bad right knee, scratching my right foot up on a branch that had fallen down. So...for those of you still with me that leaves me with a twisted and sore left ankle, a swollen and sore right knee and my right foot scratched up. Trouble, by the way, walked inside before I was able to get myself up off the ground.
But I'm a trooper with a high pain tolerance, got my hubbies snacks, breakfast and coffee to go ready for him. Saw him off to work, and went to get Charlie up for school. As I opened his door, I slid, but didn't fall, in something wet, thick and lumpy. Turning on the light, found 3 piles of vomit...which by opening the door had spread them all about. Apparently Charlie's dog, Rocky, is not feeling well.
Charlie was in a bit of trouble with me to begin with because he left an empty glass of milk in which he'd dunked oreos in and a nearly empty bowl of orange sherbert on the counter without rinsing either of them out before going to bed last night. This is one of the many things that Prozac helps keep me from smothering my children in their sleep for. When I went sliding into his room with the chunks between the toes of the foot all scratched up, I was already in a bad mood. I sent him into the kitchen to clean up his mess while I got cleaning supplies and started cleaning his carpet. Nasty smelling stuff, poor Rocky. Poor me. It hurt like hell getting down on my knees to clean it up and I was tempted to just stay down when I was finished cleaning it up, cause it hurt like hell getting up. Again, poor me.
My day's consisted of keeping my ankle and knee up, keeping them iced and catching up on the shows saved on my dvrs. Which, actually, sounds kind of nice to me if it weren't for the throbbing pain in both my legs.
By the way, the only pain pills I've got are ibuprofen...and they suck. After I pick Charlie up from school, I'll take something stronger. Like tequila.

And...Mark, honey, if you're reading this. Babe, it would be so much easier if you just didn't let Trouble go outside every morning.

*For those who don't know who Trouble is, he's my cat that refuses to accept the fact that he isn't a dog. I've never seen him attempt to climb our 6 ft. fence, but he has climbed the trees a couple of times and there are pit bulls on each side of us. That is what scares me, that he might fall into the wrong yard. If I knew he'd just stay in our fenced in back yard, I'd not have a problem at all. Darn cat.

On another note...I do have a huge crush on the 'Vic Mackey' character (Michael_Chiklis) on The Shield.

Kathi sweetie, this post was almost as sick as the time you posted about you sliding in the stall in the ladies' room into a pile of urine. How do you get yourself into these predicaments???

I still love ya---but for the love of God, stay out of the yucky stuff!

I hope you're feeling better and keep placing an ice pack on that knee. Knee problems seem to never go away!


P.S. DO NOT CALL 911!!!! EVER! (lol)

Enjoy your dvr's and your tequila...sounds like you need it after a day like that. Sounds like Troubles been dipping into that bottle a little bit himself!

Ouch!! I am sorry to hear about your fall. Hopefully the pain has subsided by now. I see you are a huge SHIELD fan. That is my favorite show on TV. I thinks better than anything that HBO or any other cable network offers. That show has been awesome since day one. I have seen that show 24 for the first time the other day and that was pretty good but nothing beats the Shield. Last night when he took that guy to the Mexican Police, holy crap, I have never seen that before on TV....that was totally original. As you can see I love that show.

Y'all are the best.

nikki ~ Mark came home early, fixed me a very strong margarita and some dinner, and I'm just staying down with my legs up. Good times. :)

cm ~ I still need to get to your site and finish reading yesterdays!! Oh yeah, and on the woman comment...kma. :)

deb ~ wasn't as bad as sitting in my own pee in the church bathroom, but it's more painful. :) Guess I needn't call you to come help, huh?? It's okay, love ya lots anyway.

Eric ~ I'm going to link you tomorrow. Really enjoy your site and would like to share you with others. Yup, tequila helps. Vicodin would be better.

Blackops ~ Wow, and here I was thinking you'd not comment more than 3 or 4 words on my blog anymore. Guess I should talk about the shield more. Guess you didn't see my favorites list...The Shield has been one of my top 2 since the day it aired. I loved Glenn Close on it. Yeah, last nights episode was pretty awesome. Glad I didn't read your comment till now, cause I just watched it awhile ago on the dvr.

tom ~ yeah, raise on to the ugly chicks...thanks alot. :)

rose ~ thanks darlin, no biggie really...I fall all the time it seems. Clutz 100%

kyuball ~ awwww, you care! Thanks, but I'm good. Just sore and swollen in a couple of wrong places, lol.
Yeah, that dog stuff is a mess and it's surely not the first...or probably tenth time I've done it.
