Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

And Now We Return You to Our Regularly-Scheduled Program

Heh heh heh bet you thought the title would be "And Now For Something Completely Different", right world?

Back to the normal stuff.....took today off. Glad I did, given the other night's non-sleep until 6 a.m. Had a normal night's sleep (i.e. started around 2 a.m., woke up at 10:30). Good thing I got up when The Most Spoiled Cat In The Universe insisted on it, because the FedEx guys showed up with boots that I ordered over the Internet (YAY!!) half an hour later, followed by a call from M from the office. Not that there was trouble at work, he had a question or two that was easily handled.

Then got to read two days' worth of newspapers, spend time petting/spoiling TMSCITU, put up a suet pack I'd been meaning to put out for a week, pick up some groceries and leave some photos for 'blowing up' (and laminating if they turn out OK--for the office). Did this at Costco. Have never used their photo place before, so we'll see how well it turns out.

Then it was 4:00 and here we are. Not much accomplished except some fine relaxing.

Don't know if I mentioned it in this blog before but the stores in O town basically suck. It's hard to find decent shoes or boots (or much else if you're female). My sister's partner, Rosie, recently told me about ordering clothes via the Internet. She found really choice clothes at bargain prices even including the exchange. Thought I'd try it with boots and BOY did I luck out. Am estatic. Tried to tip the FedEx guy and he wouldn't let me. I think those boots got here in less than a week. Not.too.shabby.

And it's NCIS night YAY!!!

Mom's doing just fine. Seems to have recovered from the too much wine episode of New Year's Day. Whew.

Off to medicate my headache. Thanks to all who responded to yesterday's post, that was a biggie for me.

Love y'all!!!

    DMJ it was a double episode tonight! The second one wasn't a rerun and was great!

    Ooops I mean it sucked. Really sucked. You didn't miss anything! ;)

    Karma, Really? There are diff formulations in different places in tylenol? Yikes. Can you order it via Internet?

    bsoholic and scrunch--you guys are AHEAD of women when it comes to shopping??? WOW.

    ooohhh i love online shopping. it opens up a whole new world. espically for pps like me who happen to live in the boonies!

    where did you get the boots from....interested to know what site you shop at

    We live in the boonies too Flea. That's why 8 out of 10 of our gifts came from Amazon. LOVE that free shipping!

    Flea, these boots were from BackCountry through Amazon.com. I take a large size in boots (lately), size 11. So I typed in something like that (size 11 women's winter boots) into Google and this was one of the sites that came back. Also ordered from WinterFootwear.com but it hasn't arrived yet.

    Tshsmom you are soo right. Now that I've discovered a way to get better, cheaper stuff with less effort, I'm hooked.

    My wife has big feet for a woman. So she'd sympathize with having problems finding shoes and boots.

    I did find her a killer place for cowgirl boots though and got her some nice ones. wish she's wear them more often. :p

    ZS perhaps you have accoutrements that go with the boots? That might inspire her to put them on more often??? ;)
