Up early, not for work, but taking hubby to the surgery center for a "manipulation" of his shoulder to break down scar tissue from his February surgery. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a long weekend. He is not a happy patient. Since he can't eat or drink...all the coffee for ME this morning. LOL And I've got one thing to say...Pumpkin Spice Creamer and fresh ground coffee. Wait, is that two things? Hmmm, not sure, but it is ALL MINE!
The reason for my title? It comes with a bit of background information...
As my son was growing up, we were the zoo of the neighborhood. We had fish, turtles, guinea pigs, snakes, mice, cats, dogs, horses, and cows. It starts innocently enough. Mom, can I have a snake? No, here's some fish. Mom, can I have a snake? No, here's a turtle. Mom, can I have snake? Oh, I don't care. Even I can be broken down...LOL
Unfortunately, when my son moved from home, I became the zookeeper. Over the years, the pets have passed peacefully and the various cages and tanks found their way out to the barn. Except for one, the biggest fish tank. I still have two VERY large plecostomus (algae eaters). All the other fish had been gone for a couple of years and I was getting really tired of cleaning the tank for just a couple of fish. A few of weeks ago, I went to the pet store and was told that they would take my two plecos. Not to put up for sale, but to put into their community tank. I just couldn't. I seem to be emotionally attached. Sigh. My other choice? I might as well get a few more fish to make the tank pretty. Here is a picture that gives you an idea how big these guys are:
My other news? I got a new Ottlite. I've had a small one for over a year that I take when I go out of town, but have just lived with what I had at home. I would use one of those "daylight" bulbs in my regular lamp. Finally decided to give in and get a 24-watt light to help me see. Gee, can you see the difference? LOL
Have I used the lamp? Nope. I would need to stay awake for that! LOL I am AGAIN hoping that I will get in some weekend stitching.
I am off like a herd a turtles. One more cup of coffee and I will be caffeined up for the day. LOL
Wishing each of you a wonderful weekend. Be kind to one another.
