I am not sure what a title should be

I feel like crying today First of all I am not feeling well went to urgicare both ears are infected and the throat is cherry red started a z pack. It was nice to say yes I have insurance.

My dear cousin died Sunday night he was more like an uncle then a cousin Me and my other cousin April are in charge of the reunion and we thought instead of sending flowers from the florist we would just donate 30 dollars to the John Kanizus Research fund . I am not to do that until there is a vote in August we were told not to do anything there is more to that situation but I dont want to get into it all.

I also seen the Orthapedic today I have four more weeks on the loveseat which I am not surprised by. What he did say that has me concerned is he doesnt see any clafication on the breaks he is going to give it four weeks and re x ray it and if he still does not see any clafication on the x rays we may have to talk surgery I dont want to talk surgery he reenforced the cast its now purple and white.

I cancelled Easter dinner. Mike will cook a ham but I dont want to fuss with everyone being here and the mess to be cleaned up by the kids or Mike and that is how it usually is me cleaning up after a big meal. My mom is not happy about this I also told her its to hard to get into her house. I am not going to feel sad cause she is not happy.

Well sorry for the depressing post but that is how it is today

It take very little to make me happy!!!!!!!!1

I am all smiles you would have thought I had hit the powerball. Nope thats not it. Guess what well guess. Okay I will tell you we have Good insurance again yaaaaay.

The great state of Pa has decided that the reduced cobra payment is cost effective. Talking to the caseworker today she said if we have known you were going to break your foot we would have paid all long. BCBS will be retroactive to March 1st.

And we got a little snow maybe 2 inches that fact doesnt make me happy but it could have been a lot worse. There was a bad accident that was heard on the scanner a suv verses a pepsi semi truck we are praying the suv driver is going to be ok. From the sound of the scanner it was bad and life flight was not available do to the fog in Erie.

Maybe more later . Have a good day all

Politics with my mom

I knew it would be a heated discussion and it was but I think I may have won. My mom is a McCain supporter here in this house we support Obama. I was telling my mom about our reduced Cobra insurance payment which kind of impressed her.

Score one for me lol. She still says Bush did more for her and the country I disagree with that statement what he did was get us in a war for 6 years. He hasnt helped the economy. Which she kind of agreed with that but then went on to say that if President Clinton would have left the housing market alone then there wouldnt be all the foreclosures.

I pointed out if Clinton hadnt changed housing rules me and Mike would have not been able to buy our house. I did not like President Clinton either. But his policys wasnt all that bad just not a very moral person but who are we to judge on that front. Onto a new topic

This week in our house is the week known as not seeing much of J week Monday he starts ROPES class through the fire dept

Tuesday its Robotics

Wensday its Band after school till 8 30 he has a district wide concert

Thursday is Fire school

Friday and Saturday its Robotics with a Robotic competion all day Saturday

with all of his school work on top of this list that he has to keep up we expect him to at least keep a c average but right now he is carying and 92.7 gpa which we are impressed with. He wants to sign up for the volunteer ambulance in town and marching band we said yes to marching band cause we just shelled out 800 over two years for a trumpet

We said no to the Ambulance sign up right now he has to much on his plate and we dont and him oerwhelmed plus he has camp cadet coming up. He is one busy kid,

Reason number 1 why I love President Obama

When Mike was working and before the Great foot break of 2009 we had great health insurance which was Blue Cross Blue Shield and because Mike is a diabetic the state payed our premiums with state insurance as a back up. 25 dollars copay for each of the 4 meds Mike has to take got expensive really fast.

When Mike was laid off the state decided it would NOT cover our cobra payment and we would just have state coverage which is fine but not as good as bcbs although we are greatful for any health insurance I know there are a lot of families out there that have nothing there were some things that made us shake our heads. First was I had to get approval for an MRI on the foot. Second I got a notice yesterday they denied payment on my air cast boot thing that I will have to wear for another 6 weeks once the hard cast comes off (thoughts on that another day). The third and most annoying was they had to preapprove one of Mikes prescriptions which took like 6 weeks.

The doctor we have gave him samples which was good but what if the drs office was out?

In todays mail we got a letter from the insurance company that bcbs is billed through saying that because of the stimulas package we are lowering the cobra payment from over a 1000 dollars to around 400 I will call my caseworker at that assitance office and ask them if it would be cost effective for us to have bcbs back instead of just relying on the state coverage.

I am crossing my fingers that they say yes and they will pay the COBRA payment if not then we will just continue with state coverage.

A conversation in my house

Me S did you brush your teeth

S. Mom your so obssessed with my teeth could you just leave them alone.

Me wanting to ducttape her somewhere there is almost 3000 dollars of metal and work going into the mouth I am not just going to leave you alone.

S. rolls her eyes and says something along the line of they are her teeth.

little over 30 minutes after she brushes teeth she wants to go with her friends that I have never meant to a spot and wait for a couple boys the girls were to meet with and me and her dad say no way no how and not in this lifetime. Which brings another fit on with words coming out of her mouth like you dont trust me and the all time favorite their parents let them do it.

Sorry little one we are not comfortable with this and your not doing it. Our house our rules. I am pretty sure from what she says that she does not like the boys but still I dont know these girls and its asking for trouble. I dont think I am going to survive her attitude

Pepper and her bad bad ways.

BoldTwo posts in one day I am impressed. I wanted to blog about pepper and her evil morning yesterday morning.

1 half full jar of peanut butter lid chewed off and jar licked clean.

2 bowls from the kitchen chewed up

1 package of 6 cookies sprung from their container and ate with crumbs all over the dining room

1 package of dog treat jerky chewed up and devoured.

1 bag of cat nip destroyed she now has cats that will be her friends for life the cats have been rolling in it. The catnip surprised me.

Its a good thing she is cute and loved cause it would be so easy to find her a new home but i still have to remember to remind people not to leave things on the counter.

Cnn made me smile

As I am sitting here on the loveseat with the laptop reading the news I went to check out cnn and there is this article that pets cause 88,000 falls a year.

Dogs cause the most with cats causing 11 percent.

Hmm I am thinking two things people should not be laughing at me for doing this and second and most important I am not alone. Yaaaaaay me

Only if we could teach our pets to put there toys up. My next fall I invision is going to be cause I tripped over a cat ball which I have came close to do a couple times but luckly I was able to catch myself.

I got out of the house last night and got a free book!!!

Just as I was getting used to be bored and enjoying tv things got rather interesting rather fast. Being a good patient I was on the loveseat relaxing when I heard ouch and lots and lots of sobs.

S came in sobbing holding a hand that in the middle was twice the size of the other hand. Seems like there was misbehaviour in the kitchen involving my two wonderful tadpoles and their uncle.
Apperently bubba flicked S and S retellated with a flick of her own and not to be left out J untied S's strings on the back of her shirt. Which resulted in S trying to hit J and instead hit the kitchen chair instead. Kids got to love them and the state says its illegal to duct tape them to the basement walls ( I should let the state deal with these two for awhile and maybe that will be overturned) we put ice on said hand and nothing and she is not moving the fingers.

So being the good parents that we are say we probably should take her into the er just to make sure nothing is broke. As I am sitting there with my foot propped up on the walker waiting for our turn this lady asks me if I read I say all the time. She handed me this book and its called Skylight Confessions by Alice Hoffman. A review of this book tomorrow it was awesome. I read almost a 100 pages before we left the er. Boy it takes a long time to read a Xray. Nothing broken that they can tell its to stay wrapped fora couple days and if its not any better off to the orthapedic dr.

So the females in the Rice household are injured. That leaves the men folk to fend for us. God hlep us.

I will pass this book on just like it was past on to me. I have decided I like boredoom and loveseat life for the moment.More tomorrow Have a good day all

Stay tuned for Peppers evilness also.

AIG bonuses

This is a tricky subject on one hand I am angry with them that we are struggling and they are getting millions of dollars in bonuses when they were irresponsible just to clarify I mean all the people.

On the other hand if the bonuses went to people that didnt cause this mess and was promised them by the people that did cause this mess its a different story right? I read the letter in the NY times by the one executive. Dont get me wrong I am not sticking up for these people it is IMO wrong to take money from a company that needs tax payer money to help it function.

Lets use an example say I got government money to pay my house payment to stop it from being foreclosed on then went out and bought a yacht people would be calling for my head and rightly so.

So what is the right answer here I say return the bonuses then name the executives that created the giant mess that AIG is in.

In other news I am trying to pick my old favorite movie. That is hard I am down to four.

Tuesday, March 24, 2009


I love our directv and new tv breaking my foot and toe came at the right time lol. Tonight live from my living room I am watching Turner classic Movie channel I love this channel they have a lot of old movies on the other day we were watching a old Humpry Bogart movie. I have seen Gone With the Wind also.

At the moment they are paying respect to Chuck Jones who helped make the merry melodies cartoons the ones that they are playing are from the 1939 and 40 year. Boy how bugs has changed over the years and elmer also. I am recording this to show my children what cartoons were.

So what is your favorite old movie. I will give my answer later.

Police in Oakland California

My heart goes out to the famlies of the officers that were shot over the weekend in California. I dont think they get paid enough to risk their lives. I appricate my small town force its a hard job.

J wants to become an officer I dont want him to but I cant always protect him.

Not much else going on here its been a quite lazy weekend. How was your weekend.

Jay Leno and other musings

BoldToday I am using green do yall want to know why I am using green? Today is the first day of spring yaaaaay winter is simply out of time. Will there be snow yes probably the evil lake is unfrozen and it will be cold so there will be the occasional snow storm. But eventually the sun will win yay.

Did anyone watch Obama on the late show with Jay? I did am I offended at his joke about bowling no I am not. I think as a country we have became way to politly correct there 90 comments in my local paper calling for his head. He was just showing his human side. Would I be offended if it wasnt someone who I supported the answer is honeslty no. I can relate to his frustration with bowling my score on the wii is not much better but I did bowl a 203 the other day and that is sitting down lol.

My brother bubba who is staying here bought J a cool pocketwatch its got the fire dept embelem on it. He will love it.

S had a great orthadonist appt she is not calling for his head today and from what Mike says he is going to attach a bracket to a 12 year molar and try to save it. 11 days untill I see the orthapedic and he said I may loose my cast if everything looks great. So cross your fingers everything looks good.\

Well that is all I have for the day Happy first day of spring to everyone.

Thursday, March 19, 2009


There is a blog that my friend Lynilu reads and apperiantly a lot of other people read also its called Maragret and Helen the writers are in there 80s and have been friends for 60 plus years. If I am half as sharp as these women are I will be happy. I wanted to comment on a couple things that has been floating in the news and the afore mentioned blog but I wont be able to put it like Maragret and Helen did.

First I want to start with is Rush Limbaugh and his big fat mouth. Now I know that Rush doesnt know me and I shouldnt take his comments personally but I did. What it boils down is he wants Obama to fail. Obama who is trying to rescue the economy, he is trying to rescue the housing market and restore jobs. I am ashamed to admit I am a registered republican but voted for Obama. Mike is laid off at the moment we are one check away from loosing our house. This idiot wants Obama to fail so more people can fall and loose their houses I say get a life to Mr Limbaugh or better yet. Tell your kids that there is no food tonight for supper cause you had to pay a house payment that you cant afford cause your laid off.

Next topic AIG people are outraged because this company that had to have billions of goverment money not to collapse and spin the entire united states into a big dark hole more then what it is. Last night on the news they reported that Catepillar is cutting another 2400 jobs Mike commented well he wont be called back anytime soon.

Then people are bitching cause the goverment wants the names of people who got millions of dollars in bonuses which should have been illegal to hand out in the first place.Hell I want the names and addresses of the people that received the bonuses I would be one of the first ones to send them hate mail.

Then there is the lovely Ann Coulter who thinks Sarah Palin is the best thing since sliced bread. If I hear anymore about her and the family drama that has been in the news Okay a show of hands how many people that read my blog (yeah I know not that many) thought Bristol Palin and her boyfriend would actually make it work after the baby came. I am surprised Mike is still alive after James came and we are married and not 18 and attending high school. Ann is full of hate and should be ducttaped the republican party in my eyes are 110 percent responsible for this mess. Okay maybe the democrats deserve some of the blame also. But I know one thing Its time for people who are not helping or offering ideas on how to change this to shut their mouths and let someone who is trying succeed in this. Former President Bush was quoted in the newspaper the other day and he said that Obama deserves his silence not his critizsm I totally agree now if other people would just follow suit.

Sorry this was so bitchy but that is what has been on my mind lately

My 100th post and other mindless ramblings

I was going to post a picture of me for my hundreth post but Last nights post was the hundreth and I just dont feel like messing with the camera and S and laptop but Caroline I havent forgotten about it.

J is walking his dog and seems fine with his groundment either he is growing up or he really wants to go to camp cadet which is moving along nicely got his physical set up for May 1st this is turning out to be expensive. Medicaid wont pay for his physical because he had a physcical a year ago on the 15th of May and all the paperwork has to be turned in on may 8 not even a week grrr. On his front he has managed to save 30 dollars towards this yaaaaaay.

We have a front moving in and its driving my foot and leg nuts I try not to take the vicadin but lately its been my friend. I was telling Mike I hope I can give it up when this all done some of my family as (mom, brother) have addiction issues although I am not to worried about it. I was able to leave the demoral at the hospital after the hystorectomy. My old neighbor is going into a nursing home Thursday or Friday to start rehab. I want to do a post about Rush Limbaugh and his idiocy and I cant believe people listen to him and AIG and the bonuses they handed out. But last night in the news they said Catipillar was cutting another 2500 jobs. Mike said its going to be awhile before he gets called back because one of the major companies that he makes parts for is Catipillar. More on this topic tomorrow.

Have a great day all

almost 100 post and teenagers I dont think I will survive

I realized last night then the next post will be the 100th post. I will have to find something special to blog about. In loveseat news we got notice that our housepayment will be going down yaaaay.

The next topic Teenagers got to love them. (not) lol. My wonderful 15 year old son J has been a great help. So we are trying to give him more priviledges and freedom but as they say 1 step forward 3000 steps back. His jr chief called last night around 7 and asked if J and pepper could walk with her and we said fine. So about an hour J brings pepper back and asks to go back out walking we said fine again and told him to be home at 8:45.

He calls and says hi mom we are running into Meadville for some Long John Silvers will be home at 9 at the latest we are not happy about this but glad he called. 10:30 and he is still not home. He comes in at quarter to 11 and says that we tell him that he is way past curfew for a school night and will talk about groundment tomorrow then he says that is unfair. We tell him that is life we will survive this he will survive this. But for now no matter how much this sucks he will be serving out the sentence and its not all that bad a week no going anywhere except to walk pepper. We explained it was not worse because he called and we knew he was safe. I dont think I am going to like the whole dating thing for S when it hits nor for J. Well that is all

38 lessons to live by

I stole this from Lynilu with her permission of course. I love it and have nothing for today so this will work. Again thank you Lynilu. Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio:To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 38 lessons life taught me. It is the most-requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here goes.
Life isn't fair, but it's still good
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Pay off your credit cards every month.
You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
Love your parents because they will be gone before you know it.
Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

It's OK to let your children see you cry.
Don't compare your life to others' lives. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful, or joyful.
Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
The most important sex organ is the brain.
No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?

Always choose life.
Forgive everyone everything.
Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
Believe in miracles.
God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
Your children get only one childhood.
All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

This is a great advice and I hope everyone can live with it.

Some excitement and possibly world war 3

First my neighbor is doing well she had her surgery yesterday and will be in the hospital 4 weeks then to a nursing home for 4 to 6 weeks. Her husband on the otherhand no so fine it is so funny how men depend on women and when the woman changes the routine the man is all confused and flustered.

Second last night in my small town of about 1500 we heard a traffic stop on the scanner and didnt think anymore about it. Mike was out for a smoke and the police went through doing about 90 the guy he pulled over decided to run. The guy running lost all of his tires and the police officer wrecked but thankfully is just fine. The officers in my small town are awesome they do a grea job keeping our town safe and the kids know that our chief has an open door policy if there is something bothering them they can go to him no questions and as much as it can stays with him. The officer got the guy who we found out had felony warrents in Pa along with Montanna.

Okay onto WW3 my mom in law who I love dearly wants to bring my sister in law out to help clean. I dont love my sister in law dearly like I do my mother in law neither does Mike. Mike and the kids have done a wonderful job keeping the house clean but my MIL thinks its time to start spring cleaning we have asked her to please not to bring Karen out (sil) I dont need the snide remarks about how she can do everything while taking care of 3 boys her care and my care are two different things by the way. My mil said something to Mike about it and Mike told her he also did not want Karen out here and she will be asked to leave if she does. There is a lot of history there and when S was really sick Karen told different people I was making her sick and she doubted S belonged to Mike. I dont need the drama I dont need the rude comments. She is welcome here with Mikes brother but I dont need her help right now. Well that is all Have a great day

I am not Contagious!!!!!!!

When we bought our house we had these great neighbors who adopted the kids and they were just awesome. They are an older couple who co owned a restraunt with their son. Well after 5 years of us living here and about 20 years of them living across the alley they had to move because the restraunt closed and the bank is taking their house.

Well when I broke my foot she bought supper over a couple times and let me borrow the shower stool. I called lastnight to just chat for a couple minutes and her husband said did you check your email and I said no why. He said she tried to top you. She did and she won I am not competing cause I dont want to top her.

She fell coming out of a pizza place dislocated her right ankle and broke several bones in her foot turns out today they found she broke her left leg and several bones in the left foot. She had surgery this morning I havent heard how she is doing tonight. Please say some prayers for her

Friday, March 13, 2009


In todays mail there was a letter from my arch nemis the Social Security office. The letter said my benefits were going up. I know I see yall scratching your heads and saying this is a good thing it is. The problem is they estimated Mikes income and determined I was only due 497 which I sent to the mortage company. Lovely

I called my caseworker to see why this changed and she said to me Mrs Rice I will do this one time but from now on you need to call the 800 number the 800 tells me to call caseworker. I told Mike wait a minute I am her client I deserve to be helped its not that I call her all the time with little questions. I am sorry they are short staffed they need to hire more people that know what they are doing. I think its very rude for her to take that attitude with me.

I wish I could report her attitude with me but again I am not sure where to call maybe I will call the 800 number and see what they say. More on this later.

Todays Mail

In todays mail there was a package for me from my friend Janna who I did a post on. She sent me various lotions and a skirt for S and a frog. I love the frog it is so cute and cuddly. But I dont collect them I should cause with my name redfrog people think I love frogs well they are kind of cute but not all that cuddly. I do collect caurosels.

I have a curio cabinet, china cabinet and a hutch full of them. I love them when I was little and wanted to escape it would always included carousels infact I have one in my bedroom that says always believe in your dreams. I have several plates and a clock and shelves that are carousels.

The other thing I am going to talk about is J and his summer plans he signed up for camp cadet and they sent us the application and medical stuff the cost is 110 dollars. Mike said we really cant afford that then he said but really the question is can we really not afford to send him meaning the money would be well spent. J has made it known if he doesnt join the military then he is going to college for criminal justice and becoming a police officer. So I think we will spend money to send him to this.

That is all I have for today

Grocery Shopping

I got out of the house today to go do grocery shopping it was a chore but its done. A trip to Meadville then back home to unload the wheelchair and the grocerys bought in Meadville. Then to Edinboro to finish the rest at walmart. I am exhausted Mike has lost his last ounce of sanity. I am trying not to laugh but at one point after my princesses attitude Mike says if yall dont want to cooperate then there will be no supper tonight.

I couldnt help thinking welcome to my world. As I sit here in the living room and he is trying to get the children to do what they are suppose to be doing while trying not to burn supper oh how the roles have changed. I really appricate his help. He has really been a life saver. Thats all I have.

School Security

Today I shocked my children and let them get out of school about 20 minutes early to go to a movie with my brother. Mike went to school to get S ( I need to add I am the one doing most of the retrieving for appts and such) and the sectary didnt question any father then you must be the father and Mike said yep. No I.d no nothing no asking S if she knew this man. Then off to the highschool to pick up J and again no questions no nothing.

I understand we live in a small town and a low crime area but still. I would rather Mike be annoyed wih having to show some id or something then them just taking him at his word and signing the kids out. What if we were divorced and there was a custody issue. Its just scary that is all I have for today.

Annoyance with Taco Bell

I am annoyed with Taco bell. Why you ask although I have to admit I do like there burrito supreme. Grounded to the loveseat I have been watching a lot of tv and there are t.v commercials that annoy me the smiling bob was the first one on my list you know the one promoting male enhancement. But taco bell has replaced it with picking on pregant women.

I know that its all in fun but its disrespectful to protray women as eating to much or using their bellies to hide food. I hope taco bell sees the error of their ways. Wow two posts in one day I must be bored.

A headline in my local paper

BoldThere was a local story in one of my newspapers that caught my attention and I mention this for two reasons. It was a man who beat his girlfriend with a pipe and threatned to kill her and her two children. First I thought how sad it was for the kids I was talking to my brother and this was near my moms house so bubba and I were talking about this.

Bubba said the guy called and wanted the girlfriend to bail him out I thought that guy has a lot of nerve. Second I didnt have any flashbacks. It amazed me I have healed and for that fact I am glad that is a hard burden to carry. Am I still sensitive to the issue yes does my heart go out to these women and kids who find themselves in this situation you bet. Can I forgive my mom for putting us throught that life maybe.

But I will still be guarded with my children cause she is still friends with the guy that was her abuser. And the little girl in me has realized that my mom will always put my mom first and there is nothing I can do to change that and I have to accept that fact. Life is good when the lessons are finally learned. Hope yall have a good day

Sunday, March 8, 2009


Today is our first nascar party in high def surround sound and big screen. It should be fun. Mike has gotten chips and various other snacks and is cooking a crock pot full of beans and weiners. We are a non drinking family so no alochol in the house. Although I could probably use some but not a good idea with the vicadin. In laws are coming and my brother Ken is coming which is a surprise. But I am trying to improve my relationship with him.

So what are your plans for this Sunday.

My mom

Part of yesterdays problem was my mom came over I knew she was coming and I told her I had a drs appt at 3:30 and also had to pick up J contacts. She said that was fine she would be over around 12 and was bringing my nephew and had no plans so she could stay as long as she wanted to. My mom in law has brought out supper twice and helped with various projects that needed finished. Its after 1 and my mom and nephew came in and said she could only stay till 3 cause she had to do an amish run which was just a couple miles from her house.

I told her I had to leave at 2.30 and she got upset with me she said she didnt even know why she bothered to come over. Then threw a bigger fit when I told her S couldnt go home with her. I said mom I need her here to help me. Then wanted to know when S was getting her hair cut I told her when S wants her hair cut then she would be getting it cut. But I am not going to force it she takes care of it and its her decision.

She told my brother she wasted gas cause she thought I would let S go home with her gee mom thank you for coming over to check on me. I am not going to let it get to me although yesterday it kind of bothered me

My doctors appt

After this is all over with my foot will be giving a soft glow of green they did more xrays today and will do more in three weeks. It seems like I didnt only break the toe but the base of the toe into the foot. With all the other damage. He just gives better and better news.

At least 3 more weeks in the cast. He said possibly another month I think I will bury my head and cry. It is so hard to not to be active and be waited on. But I will behave and stay off it cause I dont want the surgery. I am feeling kind of down. But my hubby has been wonderful and my neighbor who had to move bought supper over for us tonight. That is all hope everyone had a good day.

The things I have learned on the loveseat

I have nothing to post about no news headlines grabbed my attention so I thought I would share somethings I have discovered on the loveseat.

1. Pepper seems to be my best friend (maybe some guilt) she will lay beside me all day on the floor and also tries to trip me walking.

2. I could probably commit the perfect murder and get away from it. And if
I did get caught I could probably mount my own defense from watching cold case, csi's and all the law and orders.

3. The kittens in this house can tell when your going to eat and will be your best friends especially the females.

4. The sun is nice to see through the windows.

5.There is a lot of pet hair on the carpet from not being vacuumed regulary.

6. Mike has embraced the fend for yourself night.

7. Tiggs our older male cat doesnt like the kittens.

8. I love the laptop.

That is all I have for now.

A barbie Headline on MSN

There was a couple headlines that caught my attention this morning as reading the news one was in my local paper and it may make national headlines. A 38 metro bus driver punches McGruff the crime dog. Turns out McGruff is a police officer and the metro driver is in some hot water. I told Mike that should make these reality shows called Worlds Stupid Criminals.

The other headline that caught my attention was in West Virginia there is a lawmaker and I believe his name is Jeff Daniels who has submitted a bill to outlaw Barbie in his state. I went on to read that he believes that Barbie leads girls to focus on physical beauty and not intelligence. I take issue with this statement first of all Barbie is a toy used for imagantion as mom who has several naked barbies upstairs I can safely say my daughter has never said I want to be pretty like Barbie and let her schoolwork and all that go to focus on her looks.

Infact she has made honor roll all of last year and every grading period this year and is carrying straight A's. Is Barbies body image unrealistic yes. Should we outlaw it no. If he is going to pick on Barbie how about say Angelina Jolie or all of the other hollywood stars that look like they havent eaten forever.

Why not just believe that playing with barbies are fun and parents (gasp their jobs) can empower their children to be all they can be. (No the army is not paying me lol). My daughter if she chooses to can continue to play with her barbies. I aslo want to point out barbie has had several careers such as a doctor or a vet, secetary, nurse and such. I believe that this lawmaker needs more things to do.

Annoyance and a human experiment

We had a directv appt scheduled for 12 to 4 so Mike left to do Chester's shopping ( our old man that lives a couple houses down) I figured I had awhile before I had to be up and downstairs. The directv dude calls me at 10 am and says Mrs.Rice I am 15 minutes away can we do your appt early are you going to be home. Yes home downstairs no and its going to take me more then 15 minutes and downstairs. I am annoyed that he would call being that close to the house with no notice. Oh well hd is hooked up and we are enjoying it. Mike was back in time just in time though.

Okay on to my human experiment we went to walmart Mike needed to pick up pet supplies and some other things. I used a cart and people actually stopped before walking in front of me. Did they see the cast maybe. It shouldnt matter cast or not people should not walk out in front of one driving a cart its rude and dangerous. Well that is all I have for now. Oh one more thing the dafodils are poking up. YYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

shower update

I need to clarify something the foot thing is compromised by the musclar dystrophy. If I didnt have the md then it wouldnt be as bad as it is. And I would be allowed off the loveseat. Steps have never been my friends and with a cast it makes it even harder.

Second I took a shower tonight only because directv is coming tomorrow to do a hd hookup. The shower sleave I wore worked wonders. YYYaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy

Boring loveseat life and pictures

I have nothing to blog about life is pretty quiet on the loveseat although I have discovered a couple things.

1. Getting dressed and downstairs is exhausting and almost requires a nap.

2. Getting to the bathroom using the wheelchair is simplier then using the walker. That is all I have for today I will share a picture its one of the kittens I believe its boots and oreo and tc. The other picture is Tiggs who is 9 years old

A new cast

The orthapedic put on a new cast its not purple its white with purple drawings. The saw they use to cut it off stopped working so he had to find another one and wasnt sure if that was going to work or not.

He said that later down the road I may have to have some surgery. We will cross that bridge when we come to it. It was nice getting out of the soggy one.

Shower good cast wet bad

I was able to shower yaaay but wasnt able to get the shower sleave yet. So I thought garbage bag and tape would work. It did to a point but the cast is soaked. So I called the orthapedic dr and he said come into the er later this afternoon and we will put a new one on you.

Grrrrrrrrrrr. Thanks to my wonderful neighbor who moved for bringing me a showerchair they work very well. My husband is picking on me saying you will do almost anything to get out of that wont you. I have learned a soaked cast not all that fun or comfortable. Later all
