First we had the man bra as seen on Seinfield, then we had the murse, now we have... Mantyhose. What will they think of next. These pictures are just hilarious.
Now back to more serious stuff. I am finally here at the cabin on a Friday afternoon and plan on staying here until at least Wednesday, without The Hubby. Oh, he will be here for the weekend but will go back to town on Sunday leaving me to totally enjoy myself. I've brought 2 books, my paints, my laptop (duh) and I'm going to sleep, sleep, sleep. I know he really doesn't understand my need for a little vacation but I so need it. This past week has just been crazy.
This morning didn't help things out. I slept so hard last night that I didn't even hear the TV alarm go off. I was out. I finally pushed myself out of bed and realized that my legs were going to be a problem today. Yesterday, Wade, my trainer, had me doing tons of squats across the room. Then last night The Hubby wanted to go to the Home and Garden show at the QT Center. Man, walking on that hard concrete on iffy legs at that just took a toll on my lower half. I did get up and the first thing I did was to shuffle off to the kitchen and make myself a cup of coffee and load the dishwasher. The sink was full and I didn't want to leave it for him this week. While I was in the shower the stupid 3 year old drawer dishwasher(s) started acting up. When I went into the kitchen they both were beeping to beat the band and I didn't even turn the bottom one on. I couldn't make it stop. So I called the electrician hubby and he wasn't a lot of help. He had me go to the breaker box in the garage and find the one marked dishwasher. Well, again I am married to the electrician and we have state of the art kind of electrical boxes and home automation stuff. I finally found a breaker that was listed "Spare Under Sink". Well, guess what that was the dishwasher, not a spare. Will have to fix that later. Just now The Hubby called and he was working on the stupid thing and the warning was that the flood alarm was going off. What now! Oh well, I'm gone for a few days and it is in his hands. I'm not going to worry about it. He's the gadget guru, not me, I'm on vacation.
Other news is that Sis is home from the hospital, but not on good terms with her doctor, AT ALL! She has been begging for days to go home but they wanted to wait and let the IV meds get her blood thinner, very slowly. She is not a good hospital person but she has been absolutely on her best behavior this time. The cardiologist, who is not her regular one was not going to let her go. She wanted to have an injection kind that they give in her belly that she has had many times before so she could go home. The assistant Dr. was in agreement with Sis and this morning when the assistant Dr. went to the cardiologist again to plead Sis's case the cardiologist burst into her room slamming the door open scaring Sis half to death. Uh, you don't do that to a cardio patient! He yelled, I said yelled, at her that she was giving his staff problems and that if she wanted to go home then she could go home and deal with it. Sis was in tears and shock. When she and her husband left they were handed a card for an appointment at his office in April and she told them NO WAY would she ever set eyes on him again. Then they went to her regular GP doctor and he was infuriated with the whole scene and they both are filing formal charges against the doctor. Can you imagine the nerve of the guy. I don't see Sis get upset, crying upset very often. This was just uncalled for. Anyway, she is home and that is a good thing.
Thanks everyone for the good wishes and prayers for Sis and me. I so appreciate it.
