All must be well...


So, yeah, apparently, 'we're leaving at 9' really does mean 9, and not 10 or 11 or something more civilized. Who knew?

I really did intend to get up and be ready to go - I got up at 8, fixed some Lucky Charms, and promptly fell back asleep.

So instead of going down to London to decorate Moma's grave for winter, I woke up and fell asleep and felt guilty all day.

I spent quality time with my kitty. Our pets embody the joy and pain of life...the love is so pure, but everyday my heart breaks a little, because odds are I will outlive her. Sometimes I don't know how we stand to live with what we've seen and the knowledge we have.

I played my app some...I'm addicted to this kind of battle card RPG on my phone. It's well established that I'm a geek, so, there you go. :)

I watched some Glee.

I spent some time today trying to figure out what color my eyes are. I try to do this every once in a while. I have central heterochromia, which is a fancy way of saying each eye has two or more distinct colors. My eyes have a yellow starburst thingy around the pupil and then the iris is green. Usually. Only sometimes it's gray, or blue. So most days I have green eyes, and a few days I'm Arthur Dent.

Today I was Arthur Dent. I have eye-colored eyes.

What I did not do for most of the day was get on the computer. I guess I was taking a break even though I didn't intend to take a break.

When Chelsea got home from work it was like life and sunshine entered the house again. For being such a grump, she sure brings laughter and happiness wherever she goes anymore. I guess it's hard keeping up the grump face when you're working your dream job at your favorite place in the world!

She's my joy.

  1. My dad has never been to his parents' grave. I highly doubt my husband will ever visit his parents' grave. Different strokes for different folks.

    Joe snuck a whoopie cushion behind my pillow last night. Dork.

    1. I know...this is something specific to our area of the country, I think.

      Joe is funny. Sounds about right for a boy his age. My brother tormented my mom and me with all kinds of tricks and traps and jokes...
      (sigh)

    1. I'm trying to...My quality of life right now is pretty low, I really am trying to make it better and enjoy it more. Life's too short.

  3. I loved this "Our pets embody the joy and pain of life...the love is so pure". SO SO true.

  4. Agreed on the pets... we've got a passel of Persians, who are extremely affectionate, but who also give us more than their share of unwanted secretions and medical problems. They do intensify the ups and downs, don't they?

    Eyes... a year or so ago I posted something about fantasy RPG magicians whose eye color determines what type of magic they can do. I'm not sure if there's an Arthur Dent category, though... :-)

    1. Unwanted secretions...yes, I would have to agree with that! LOL

  5. Pets sure do embody much indeed, always there every day. It's better we outlive them then they outlive us, in a way, at least we know where they went. We go, they get shipped off to god knows where,having little idea why.

    1. OMG that's so true...that's even worse, thinking about that.

  6. My eyes change color according to what I'm wearing, either blue or green. They default to a greyish green with neutrals. I think it's fun and am delighted that my daughter inherited them.

    1. Mine too! I guess that sounds better than eye-colored eyes, LOL.

      It is fun, I still sometimes with I had a color people could remember...Dwayne's eyes are a beautiful chocolate brown, he always gets compliments on how pretty they are. What's a boy need with pretty eyes?! LOL...

    2. What's a boy need with pretty eyes? Surely, you were single once upon a time...

      All this reminds me of the line from "Your Song":

      "So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
      You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
      Anyway the thing is what I really mean
      Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen"

      Without a doubt in my mind, some of the greatest lyrics in all of pop music.

    3. I so agree, I love that song. It was my personal highlight when I saw him sing and play it in concert...just awesome.
      I had totally forgotten about that line when I was writing this! LOL

    1. You're welcome!! :)

      9 am on a Saturday is just way too early, my normal awake time is like 6 or 7 pm... I just can't ever seem to wake up on Saturday.

  8. Yep. A big bowl of Lucky Charms will strangely make you fall back asleep, if you let it. Sneaky Leprechauns ... :)

    1. It was the leprechauns, you solved it! They are tricky...

  9. It happens to the best of us. Sometimes we have the best intentions but things just get in the way. There is always next time or next week.
