I’m not kidding when I said I need this now. I know it’s after 1:30 AM Saturday here on the east coast, but it is still Friday in the other parts of the country. Hope that counts. 🙂

I haven’t had a good couple weeks, with moving/ management company issues, pain, and getting my medical insurance squared away for NY, among other things. I’ll leave it at that because I want to talk about the good things – the small things that have made the past couple of weeks tolerable.

My daughter is 29-years-old today, and I called just after midnight. She was just getting off her EMS shift when I called (half-night for the birthday girl). Her comment to me was ‘This is my last year in my 20’s; once 30 hits, I have to get my shit together.” Umm,  I couldn’t be prouder of her or my son-in-law if I tried. They both work hard, Mandy has her EMT now, so she has her day job and Friday and Saturday nights on the ambulance. 

I’m celebrating having a chance to see Doctor Strange with Vi and the family. It was awesome, and I am completely obsessed with Marvel now. 

Vi has gone above & beyond helping get things out of the cottage and bringing them to the house. 

We went out to eat at an awesome Indian restaurant called Saffron. It’s my second time there and I love the food! You can just call me Ms. Chicken Tikka Masala. Yum. 

One of the other things that have been making me laugh and/or smile are the Obama/Biden memes. O.o 

And always the best, I’m STILL ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE GRASS!! 

What have you celebrated this week?

Make sure to thank everyone for the great job they do!

It’s been a crazy busy past few weeks. I’m still in the middle of moving from my old cottage to New York. My daughter and son-in-law went to the house about a week and a half ago to start the packing process. Most of it is done, and my friend and I have been taking drives back and forth to bring stuff to NY that’s not going into storage.

Even though I had some pain, I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the Scareoke event my friend Bibi held at Casa Nova. I took a pain med and muscle relaxer before we went. I was a circus ringmaster. I sang Monster Mash with a new friend, and with a group sang Over at the Frankenstein Place and Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Good times!

I made a few new friends and am so excited. It’s been awhile since I’ve enjoyed myself with so many great people. Here are a couple of photos.
