A tub and rub will change your day.

That was the fortune I opened today at lunch. A FORTUNE....FROM A COOKIE. AT WORK. So, what did I do? I showed it to everyone!! The consensus is that it appears that the sex shop fortunes and the Chinese restaurant fortunes must have been sent to the wrong places.......the sex shop people are certainly going to be disappointed.

Today is one of those kind of blue, down and out days. I'm annoyed by most everything. I keep thinking my "just think how lucky you are" speech, and, folks, it's NOT WORKING. And nobody is READING me today and for sure nobody is COMMENTING today....and I feel sad and NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE.

On a much cuter note, here are Lester's ears. Well, Lester too, but JUST LOOK AT THE EARS:





And here is Maddi, my rock star princess (and great niece) She'll be 5 next week:




I am trying not to google 'shoulder injury'. Son #2 got a stinger during football. Yeah, just read that definition.........NEUROLOGICAL STUFF. Now he's in major pain, and has to see the football sports trainer today. NOT THE DOCTOR mind you.......the TRAINER. The football people don't LIKE doctors because doctors are shockingly cautious, and make football boys NOT PLAY BALL when injured....trainers just tell them to bite the bullet like a MAN and get OUT THERE AND PLAY, SON!!!! Mr. Perfectly is taking him (thankfully) so I don't have to get rude with the trainer when he tells my baby to take this injury LIKE A MAN. I may have to show that TRAINER how to take it in the MAN PARTS.......

Our work staff is shorthanded today, and since I was sick (cough) on Monday, I can use the time as make up time.......which is always nice. And it keeps me from becoming violent in trying to protect my young cub. But it also means I'm at work til 5 pm instead of the usual 3:30 pm. That ISN'T fun.

We ordered Chinese food at lunch today. It wasn't very good. At least mine wasn't. The dumplings were smooshy, and the noodles not flavorful---and what flavor it DID have wasn't appetizing.

I did get that naughty fortune, though. I know Mr. Perfectly will take that as a SIGN............

I sure wish I knew why I was so cranky today...it's not my 'cranky time' if you get my drift.....nothing major is happening in my life.......

Oh, I know....it's because I wore ugly clothes today. I didn't shave my legs, so I couldn't wear capri pants.......so I wore navy blue pants and this hideous blue top I got at Wal-Mart. It looked CUTE on the hanger...Mr. Perfectly warned me that he didn't think it would be cute, and I pooh poohed him away and bought it anyway. Now I've GOT to wear it, because nothing else really goes with the navy blue pants. Oh...here it is! It really looked cute, and it really isn't.

Oh well, I've groused enough for the day. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon while I worry about shoulder injuries and war with Russia (and having a nearly 18 yr old son).

Toodles for now.

I bought that shirt in the floral red and now I look like a couch.

Perfectly Shelly said...

Tawny-yeah, I saw the red floral one as well...and the green floral and the green print JUST LIKE THE BLUE PRINT and nearly bought a variety. They looked SO CUTE....but they just don't look right on.......I thought it was just me, but I'm sorry to say this, but I'm GLAD it's not just me..........I was beginning to worry.

Except there's another woman in the building who wears the same shirt, and it's not too cute on her, either. That SHOULD have been my clue, but nooooo, I bought it anyway.

I feel like I'm judging others taste in clothing....I'm not trying to , but really, someone needs to let people KNOW that it's much cuter on the hanger or in a picture than on a person........

I think you need to look to the cookie for advice.

Maybe you really do need a tub and a rub.

It could work...
