Something’s wrong with the clapitois pattern.
Why haven’t I written in months?
The Annie Lamont book is amazing.
If something goes wrong tomorrow and I haven’t been confirmed yet, am I still considered Catholic?
I’m hungry.
How much wine is too much wine on the night before surgery, even if I stop well before midnight?
Did I take my pills?
I should go to bed.
I hope Allyson and George enjoyed their anniversary dinner (Andre’s) and show (Zumanity).
I’m happy that I have a friend who can recommend fancy restaurants for my out of town guests. (SUSAN :^D)
Mattin needs to lose the Gilligan scarf.
I wish CBS had renewed The Unit.
When will Fall start? I’m tired of 105 degree heat.
How many more miles til I need to change to oil in my truck?
Should I put the prologue back in?
I wonder if anyone’s read the story I submitted to the WD competition?
Bed. Now….
My foot itches. What if I’m allergic to something?
Where’s my book?
Pumpkin looks funny when he sleeps. So does Jax.
Time for bed. Surgery in the morning. Early.



  1. I’m thinking of you, Cindy, and praying that everything goes well. You’ll be healthy — how cool is that???


    By the way, I think you perfectly captured the sort of thinking that goes on in all of heads at times like this. Well done.

    • Thanks, Piglet. Everything went as planned. I’m home, sore and dopey. And transmitting 5 by 5 (that’s Army-speak for ‘loud and clear’). And now back to bed…

      • YAY!!! So glad to hear things went well. *piglet bounces up and down happily* When will you be able to be up and around? Or are you already?

      • Hi Piglet! I up and toddling around. I got furiously angry with my bandage today, so I ripped it off. The surgical tape was irritating my skin, and peeling up around the edges. My surgeon actually thought I’d wait 2 weeks before showering. I was strong. I waited about 29 hours after surgery before my first shower. I’m off all pain meds, two more days of antibiotics, and a followup next week.

        I’m moving slowly, taking it easy, not lifting cats or laundry. And napping as much as I can. I don’t know what the monitor is recording/transmitting, but I guess I’ll find out next week. It does interfere with the cordless phones and my whiz-bang Sprint Pre cell phone. Grrrr…..

        Thanks for the bounces!

      • You sound like my Lab, Gracie, after she was spayed. Vet said, “Keep her quiet for a few days, don’t let her jump.” Hello????!!? 6-month-old Lab puppy? As soon as the anesthesia wore off, she was running and jumping, paid absolutely no attention to her incision (so she didn’t have to wear the Cone of Silence — aren’t you glad you don’t, either?), and was none the worse for wear. Two weeks without showering/bathing is ridorkulous; does your surgeon not have a functioning nose? And surgical tape is evil, evil, evil. It’s appropriate you should get angry with it and rip it off before it eats away any more of your skin. I’m a big advocate for VetRap over a gauze dressing, forget about adhesive anything.

        I’ll just keep on bouncing for you — so happy to hear you’re doing well! (also giggling uncontrollably at the vision of you wearing a Cone of Silence ;-)

      • Tee Hee! The Cone of Silence would be akin to a death sentence for me. Although, there is a certain symmetry here. I feel like all the inner secrets of my heart are being broadcast across town to the cardiologist’s office for the amusement of those teenagers in pink scrubs.
