I know that I said I would finish, and post, my drawing today, but I have spent almost the whole day wrapped in a blanket on the couch. I don't think that I'm sick, I just can't seem to get warm. For the last 24 hours, I have been chilled to the bone, to the point where I feel achy all over, but I'm not running a fever, and other than a slight headache and a general loss of appetite, I'm just freakin' COLD. Granted, the mercury outside hasn't risen above 18F over the last few days, but everyone else is quite comfortable with the inside temps in our house. Gawd, knowing my ass-backward body, I'm probably having cold flashes, instead of hot flashes. It's always the simple things in life that manage to confuse me the most.
I had just about convinced myself that the world would be just fine if I spent the day on the couch with my blankey . . . until Jake and Heather came home. Heather reminded me that tonight was parent's night at the junior high school. She's very excited (and nervous) about starting Jr. high next year, and she is determined not to miss out on one tiny shred of information. I did my best to squirm out of it, but she wasn't going to accept no for an answer. So, I braved the cold and spent an hour and a half wondering if it's healthy for a 46 year old woman to have such an emotional attachment to a fuzzy blanket,.
My dogs are really upset. I got an e-mail today stating that the recent salmonella tainted peanut butter contamination is not limited to people food only, but has been extended to peanut butter flavored dog treats! My dogs are totally addicted to peanut butter. They LOVE that squeeze peanut butter in a can that I use to fill their Kong toys with. I can't believe that President Obama has done NOTHING to solve this crisis! Millions of American kids and dogs have become dependant on their daily peanut butter fix, and the man we entrusted with the welfare of our nation, has a total disregard for the people (and pets) suffering from peanut butter withdraw. We the people, (and now, canines) have NO peanut butter, and he has a total "Let them eat cheese" attitude about the whole thing! Mark my words, all this is going to end badly. I know things in my house could get really ugly.
Oh Gosh, my fingers are too cold to type. I'm going to shut things down and jump into bed. Good nigh y'all, stay warm.
