Scroogie/MD's Blog – July 2009 Archive (19)


At the moment I am doing pretty good at living up to my claim of only being 12. I am playing on her, texting, listening to iTunes and having a snack all at the same time. Gotta love it when you're home alone for a little while ;-)

Holy Cow!

My DD is on vacation. DH came home and let the dog out this evening. We went to let him back in and couldn't find him. Scoured the neighborhood. Checked under all the bushes. Everything. Found the lump an hour later asleep in the bathroom. We were calling the little %&*#@*% and he NEVER WOKE UP!. All I can say now is glad he was here.

Well its hot here and muggy and I hate that combo. I would outside (I deliver mail) and it was just a yucky kind of day.

Then.... I found a box of ice cream cones laying scattered in the road. No kidding. They fell off the top of the Schwan's truck. I call the driver and told him I found them ... He said guess they're yours now. So I had one then put the rest in the freezer of one of my customers. I told them where I got them but it didn't bother them either. ;-)

Nothing like free ice… Continue

Age or lack there of ;-)

Okay.. It's been an interesting day. So to combat my mood I'm showing my age (or lack there of) and sitting in front of my iMac blasting iTunes full volume. I only claim to be 12 so what's coming out of it should surprise no one.... Seether... Nickelback... Papa Roach....Hinder.... Linkin Park and last but far from least Theory of a Deadman ;-) I will still be blasting this tomorrow only via headphones at work. (If they knew what I listen too they would never believe it.)

Yippee This Monday was a little better than last Monday ;-)

Husband is still a little goofy but this week he has a reason (3/5 of his right hand is immobilized)
iPod died again
mail truck worked all day
and bra wires are still whole
I don't have a headache
and last but not least I do have adult type beverages in the house. (purchased at a discount... I was kidding the register guy... he was outside playing with my puppy so I asked if I got a discount and he gave me 15% off)

I'm surrounded!!!

My mother and DD left for the beach today for a week. They left me with my Dad my DS and my wounded DH. Even the new puppy is male. When I pointed this out to my DD when she called to tell me that they arrived at their destination she just laughed at me and told me the female cat will keep them all in line. NOT FUNNY!

Thank you

It is so nice to know that my DH is not the only one who will not sit still. He's not misbehaving but he's not exactly behaving either. He should be fine when all is healed but not knowing what he will/is getting into is going to drive me nuts until it is a little better. At least you all understand ;-)

DH's Hand Again...

Well we went to the doctor's this morning. (Can you feel the frustration coming?)

DH was supposed to be having an abscess in the knuckle of his right middle finger cleaned out. The doctor told him ahead of time it will be sore for a couple days but that should be it.

What actually happened is they opened it up and found scar tissue on his tendon and to remove it they had to cut the tendon. He came out of the back 45 minutes later wrapped from his fingertips to his wrist.… Continue

Husband's hand

Well off to the doctor's we go today to get my husband's hand opened up and cleaned out. He cut the back of his hand open near hie middle knuckle July 2nd and it has been swelled to some extent ever since. He's progressed from family doctor to ER to hand specialist who thinks it may be abscessed and he is going to open it back up. I was shocked they told him he could drive himself home. It's his right hand and its not just a surface wound so when they numb it it can't be just the top layer of… Continue

Meet the neighbors ;-)

Well in the last 24 hours Axel has now meet most of our neighbors. We are trying to get him to meet as many people as possible so he is socialized. He fell asleep on the one neighbor's porch and then their yard and then under their bush. That neighbor said he was his kind of dog ... low key and laid back.
If and when he gets energetic I'm going to be shocked.

The "puppy"

Well today is going much better than yesterday but that didn't take much.
I found out something interesting though. My fluffy furry puppy is NOT mostly hair. He is mostly puppy. There is a very large body under the fluff too. My DD's hopes of a 220lb dog may be realized yet.

Gotta love a Monday.

My day so far...
My husband is acting goofy (it involves a man and doctors.. 'nuff said)
The muffler fell off my vehicle at work
I have a lovely headache (might have something to do with the lack of a muffler)
my iPod died (just the battery)
and when I got home I found out my underwire is broke
and there is a very limited choice of adult type beverages in my at the moment.


I wish I could just sleep through the rest of the week.

I think I went to one of the best concert line-ups I have seen in a while last night.... Papa Roach, Hinder and Nickelback. It was terrific, The rain even broke right before concert time and turned into a beautiful evening.

puppy and fabric

Until we get all the vital necessities our new little puppy is going to seriously cut into my fabric allowance.

Sitting at my computer; alone in the Slackers.

I was sitting here singing to myself and decided to check my regular email. I found this link. Yippee. This is what I was singing and in 6 days I will be there ( I can hardly wait). This is a link to Nickelback's latest video... on AOL so its censored.

elongated pictures

I've seen posts in multiple groups that the pictures are distorted and elongated. Mine are fine. Is it possible that it is the screen resolution setting on their computers that is doing this? This is one of those questions that after seeing that comment more than once just makes me go hmmmmm and ponder the causes. I know I can distort pictures on my wall paper if I click stretch to fill screen. Makes them look really weird.

Transformers and Nickelback

Well first I found out that Transformers (the Movie) has a great soundtrack (ok so I already have most of the songs) The new Linkin Park from the movie New Divide is most likely the reason I have gotten some sewing done. People in my house probably wish I had a solitary confinement room, padded and soundproof. I tend to crank up the volume on iTunes when I sew.

Anyway, today my daughter sent me a text message..... Papa Roach has joined Nickelback's tour for the Hersheypark concert at… Continue
