Full Moon Day

Due to a totally unexpected attack of Parotitis that makes me look like a gerbil on one side I will not be blogging or visiting much today/tomorrow. Apparently I've not been drinking enough water and have a little plug in the gland. At least that is what it has been in the past. It is only painful when I eat so maybe some weight loss will occur. It really was a doozy when I had a little snack after taking the stuff to lower triglycerides just a while ago.

Today was totally so busy I was nearly foundered by the time I got to the sofa for some tv. I had errands to run and people to meet and get out of one contract with a realtor who has been leasing my rental property for ages, but seems unable to attract a tenant in the past four months after my tenant bought a new house from my realtor. That was not pleasant and hopefully there will not be fall out from it all. Otherwise I will put a FOR RENT/LEASE sign out myself and probably do as well. They usually wind up calling me anyway. Onward and upward.

Then tonight one of the neighborhood association members called and asked for all the money in the bank so he could show our appreciation to the members who have been negotiating on our behalf with the oil and gas people. I was sort of flabbergasted and so was he when I told him no.
Oh well...onward and upward.

But now it out of here and to the bed so I can take them on again tomorrow. There is a low place in front of my rental property and I called the city who told me there was no money to fix it. I'm calling my councilman tomorrow to tell him it is a health hazard and something needs to be done even if it is only that they come out and put a "dunk" for mosquitos in the water. Dang! There is West Nile Fever around these parts.

And to top the whole weird evening off there was a collect call from an inmate at the Tarrant County Jail. I hung up. It wasn't one of my kids and they scam the elderly by asking for money to get the elderly person's grandson out of jail, too. It is so time to sleep.

And I so need to check the must be full and red or something.


  1. Gosh Amber, I think you need a few days of rest and relaxation. Doesn't it seem like sometimes everything happens at once. We will still be here when you come back. Take care of yourself and I hope things slow down for you and you feel better.

  2. ROFL! I think you might be caught between dimensions or something! You DO have the weirdest stuff happen! LOL! DRINK DRINK DRINK! No! Not the margaritas! The WATER!!! Well... okay... and then the margaritas!

  3. I hope today is a better day for you. I'd never heard of your medical problem. I'm going to read up on it.

    I'm knitting socks since I feel fall in the air. This is my afternoon to volunteer at the wetlands, and tonight I'll watch C-Span convention coverage.

  4. Feel better soon!

  5. I am not certain why how you look will keep you from blogging. It isn't as though we can see you! ;)

    I hope you are feeling better soon and keep yourself full of water! [Oh! Never mind. I think I know what will keep you from blogging.]
