More Stuff

Whew. Did anyone get the number of that truck that ran over me??? Damn.

Let's see if I can recap a bit. I spent Sunday morning with my dearest friend. I'd say oldest - as she's known me for 20+ years, but she gets a little pissy when you use the "old" word and since she now knows how to find the Little Blue Cracker House and my blog I figure I better behave. Guess what she gave me. Go ahead. Guess. FOUR big boxes of candles!!! One for every season. They are very nice! Does she know me or what?!?!?!

Not only that but she had me show her how to find Tammi's World as well as a few other sites I talk about a lot. I gotta tell you folks - makes me kinda nervous. Between BAM (which is how she id's herself on the site), my cousin, and my blogdaughter/niece Carmen I'm pretty vulnerable. Like standin' outside with your pants around your ankles vulnerable. It's rather freaky writing when you know that some of the folks reading knowing you that well. YIKES.

I spoke with Army Wife and she's fine. Tired, sore but fine. She just needs to rest. She did that yesterday. Her DH did a very good job of pampering her. He gets many gold stars in my book!! But she's fine and we should see some posting from her soon.

I did get some bad news. My aunt's cancer is back and pretty bad. We're very worried. She beat the breast cancer, but this is an even tougher fight. We're just hoping the chemo works. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

I might as well just come out and admit it. I am desperately looking for a new job. DESPERATELY. I did get one offer in Bentonville AR last week, and another in Tulsa OK on Friday. However - that kinda defeats the whole purpose of me being up here. Puts me at 15 hours from Mama Vi and with that, I might as well have stayed in Florida. Plus, to just be honest - I cannot even begin to afford to move cross country again. Money wise or emotionally. I don't have it in me. Anywhere. I'm just spent.

So - it's back to the salt mines today. Tonite I'm hoping to pull my bedroom together a bit. Just because I can't wait to see how it looks. Then tomorrow night the serious job hunt begins. Posting might be a bit sparse for a while. But at least I can access the MuNu blogs again. So I'll be reading. You didn't honestly think you could get rid of me that easily did you?!?!?!?

Oh - and just so you know. Yeah, I'm gonna have a really pretty scar from my coffee pouring incident. But I'm thinkin' of it more like a tattoo. If you look at the main wound part it looks like a pair of lips all puckered up. That could work. Maybe. Sorta.

Hey - give me a break. I'm tryin' to find that damned silver lining again!!!!

You can't do AR or OK anyway because they're landlocked states. That right there rules those states out!

I think if your scar looks like lips, you should look at that Rolling Stones lips advertisement thing they always had and see if you can do that!

OR! you should make a tattoo with lips and have it say, 'Start here'. Heh heh heh!

Heh - candles... I have visions of you turning your garage into a candle storage center. Now how could I ever come to that conclusion? As it is, what did you have to move to make room for this next batch... your bed? kitchen appliances? living room furniture? Enquiring minds want to know. *grin*

Keeping your aunt in my prayers!

Those of us who know you so well would describe your vulnerability differently. More like a good breeze blew your skirt up and you forgot your, oops!, panties. hehehehe.

Sorry about this, but it IS EASIER to ask forgiveness than permission. hehehehehe

Cuz - that's just mean. You really weren't supposed to tell anyone about that. ;-)

Ok, so maybe I did carry the whole forgetting your panties thing a little far. But then again, this is "Tammi's World", so almost anything could happen. Love you! ;-P
