Miscellany...

No school tomorrow for my daughter...it's the first day of spring break.  So she is spending the night at her best friend's house.
So what did I do on my big Thursday night out with no responsibilities, not a care in the world?
I got off work, came home, and took a nap.  D called and woke me up twice.  He didn't come over because he has to work at the crack of dawn tomorrow... The second time he called and woke me up, I gave up, got up, and went into the kitchen.  I was starving...no one but me to fix dinner for...I fixed a can of ravioli and ate at the table while studying my laptop. 
And once I finished my ravioli, I signed off my laptop in there and came and got on my computer in here (my bedroom).
My life is obviously very, very sad, when there's no daughter around to fill it up!
But at least I got to eat ravioli.
LOL! Okay, I'm done now...I really did have about a million other things I could have done, but the prospect of having an evening where I did absolutely nothing but sleep and whatever else I wanted was too good to pass up...I would have turned the phone off but I was afraid my daughter would call so I couldn't...no phone really would have been the perfect evening!
NEWS OF THE WEEK:
1.  I took C to the ear doctor this week and she is healed!  Even the hole the doctor had seen has healed up...the doctor was amazed, she wanted to know what else we had done at home because she had been sure that we were going to need additional medicine and/or surgery.  As it is now, she goes back in two months for another check up.
I am just so thankful that this day is here...more than five months later, she is finally free of all that infection and pain.  Thank you thank you thank you...
2.  I am going to New York in less than two weeks and I have nothing to wear...
3.  Saturday evening, D bought me a present for the trip.  Yes...he took the hint...I can't BELIEVE he took the hint but then again I've never gone to NYC before...
I am now the proud owner of an iPod shuffle! Yay!
It only took me two days to figure out how to make it work with my computer, but it's oh so cool...
4.  After the good news about my daughter, I was on a wave of relief that lasted for approximately one day...then my mom told me that she has to go see an oral surgeon about a spot on her tongue...and then my grandpa's outpatient surgery on his nose that was scheduled for tomorrow was cancelled this week due to his heart rate being extremely low (40 instead of 80 where it's supposed to be) and he instead had to go see a cardiologist and is taking a stress test tomorrow...and my aunt has a place on her pancreas that the doctors are looking at...
What in the world?  I kind of felt like, sheesh, get rid of one worry, pick up three more...but I'm refusing to worry about it.  Breaking news today from the cardiologist was that my grandpa's low heart rate may be due to some medicine that he's been taking, so hopefully that's that and once he weans himself off it he'll be fine.  And God and the doctors will take care of my mom and my aunt and there will be no problem...I mean it!
5.  And now, to end on a positive note...you should be here in Louisville to feel how excited my city is about being in the Final Four this year, for the first time since 1986!  Pep rally downtown yesterday at Fourth Street Live...16,000 people attended it!  Even most...some...die-hard Kentucky fans are excited about it!  Go Cards...
(sigh)
I'm really missing my daughter...I'm sure SHE'S having all kinds of fun...here's the current background to my desktop, my daughter made it for me a couple of weeks ago...
