This is the best picture I've gotten of Mina in a while...too bad her eyes were closed. I think we're all starting to feel better today. Posted by Hello

There's an oily rag stuck in my lung

No pictures today, because once again, we are all ill. I am hoping that after this bout, we will have fulfilled our seasonal obligations to the cold and flu gods.

I've nearly lost my voice from being on the phone with insurance people and the mechanic. Basically, the mechanic didn't follow procedure and is trying to cover his tracks, but in the process trying to bill me for the $450 in repairs that the insurance company never approved. Again and again it's been, "well we'll cover _x_ amount, does that sound better?" and again and again I have said, "this is not my fault, this is not my problem. Talk to eachother and make it go away." Finally Dale Monday told me to send him the bill and he'll just pay it. I said, "well, you shouldn't have to do that, but thank you, thank you very much." Anyway...nice guy. So, mom, if you're reading, and you happen to talk to him for some reason, be sure and mention the nice thing he did.

We're out of food. It's cold and I don't feel good and after searching the pantry, it's going to be beans tonight. Yeah, the kind you have to soak for 8 hours and cook for 1.5 hours. They are even generic, off-brand beans. We should pretend we live by the railroad tracks in a tin shack. Isn't life swell?

Tra la la...

AdSense! I love thee!

I just wanted to direct everyone's attention to the advertisements in the lower right portion of the screen. Hopefully this will make up for the fact that I waste incredible amounts of time and energy writing deeply personal things for the whole world to see. I encourage others to try this as well. It's perfectly fine to be a whore, as long as you're a Google whore!

look at the face Mina is making.  Posted by Hello

It might be better than livejournal.

This will, from now on, be the real deal. What I mean is that I'll still use livejournal for silly stuff and communication with friends, but I'll use THIS space for actual compositions.

Batooooo! Yah! Yah! Deeter deeter...NOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Mina is running around her bedroom like her pants are on fire, shouting things in toddler-ese. I wish I had a hidden camera in there so we could see what on earth she does in there for the hour that she stomps around before finally passing out. She likes to make window art, I know that. She bites a piece of fur out of her oversized pink doggy stuffed-animal, and presses her face against the window so she can spit on it. Then she uses the bit of fur to "paint" with her saliva on the glass. I've caught her in the act before and even watched her do it from the outside.

Leta has been ill with whatever deathlike virus has been going around. Her face has a really crusty snot shell casing and so does her hand. Her eyebrows are glued straight up like a mad scientist, glued with crusted snot. She is so impossible...she won't let me get near her with a rag or the bulb syringe (snot sucker-outer).

Every day is an adventure.

And it's only noon.

*sigh*

livejournal is not working. What if it's all gone? Poof? hundreds of precious hours, wasted.

I could have done a number of things tonight, but I chose to put on my kitten pajamas and eat cottage cheese in front of the computer. Well, I really wanted to watch some Family Guy, but Jason is sucked into some snoozefest on PBS. He's sleeping. But he doesn't want to watch anything else. Ooookay.
