Happy (Belated) St. Patrick’s Day! Did you celebrate? I would love to tell you that I partied, but I didn’t. The night before was full of problems with the laundry machines, my printer and my kitchen sink, so by the time I was all done with that drama, I was ready to drool over Timothy Olyphant who was wearing a cowboy hat in the new series called “Justified”. He is yet another obscure crush of mine.
On a very sad note, my cousin is in hospice care, in her late stages of cancer. My mom and I went to visit her today….er…yesterday. She started out with breast cancer, but then just when they thought that was over she got the cancer in her bones, then her lymph nodes, then liver and then her brain and spinal cord. She seemed alert when we visited, but then went back to sleep. So we sat and talked with her husband for awhile. Her two sons have been helping during this terrible, dramatic time. They’ve been beyond awesome. Some friends of theirs also came by to visit. We stayed for an hour and then left. It got to me more than I thought it would. She of course didn’t look the way I saw her three years ago. What I remember, distinctly, is her contagious laughter. My brothers would, not surprisingly, tease her until she laughed harder and harder. She had a great laugh. When we saw her last night, a friend of hers had painted her nails red. I was able to laugh with the lady who had visited that my cousin’s painted nails looked much better than ours.
Anyway, so before all that, I had to work today and we were fed during a staff meeting. We all got a raffle ticket for each piece of green we wore, since it was St. Patty’s Day. I won two, wonderful prizes since I wore a green skirt, green sweater, shamrock earrings and a green necklace. I won a water bottle with my company’s logo on it and a thingy for my license plate. Stay back! Don’t swarm around my loot, don’t be jealous.We had good food, though…and some tasty desserts!
Yeah, so that’s about it. Quite frankly, I’m exhausted and need to sleep. G’night!
