Catching Up

OK, I had to go out and get some chocolate after all the comments about chocolate, especially Her Indoors mentioning her Cadbury bar. Mmmmmmmm Cadbury.

I have soooooo much to do. My little relapse and the medicine and the recovery took up so much of my time, I had no idea. Plus, I didn't realize that I'm still having some side effects from the Avonex, so I spent Monday achy with no energy and depressed--another day lost.

So, I've been running around like the proverbial chicken with her head cut off the last couple of days and once I finish this, will be starting up again today. Groceries, laundry, hair appointment (very important--gotta keep that gray covered), picking up medications, mailing stuff, checking in our friends who are moving, appointment with the tax guy (definitely getting enough back to pay for the bathroom redo), buying stuff for that bathroom redo, paying bills, reading blogs, writing a post . . . My God! It's never ending! But I'd much rather be busy, so I'm not complaining. Plus, we're 2 weeks away from our Scotland trip

Holy shit! We're 2 weeks away from our Scotland trip! Where's my list of things I gotta do for that? Oh, on the back of my list of things I have to do around here that have nothing to do with the trip. Actually, I'm not stressing about this trip. As long as I get the paper and the mail stopped, I'll be ready. This trip is going to be so easy. Get on the plane, get on the bus, have a dram of whisky, knit, eat some haggis, buy some yarn--easy peasy. Yes, I will be eating haggis. Actually, if you don't think about what it is, it's not so bad, very savory. And I'm looking forward to a couple of full Scottish breakfasts, usually eggs, bacon (not like our bacon--it's not as fatty), sausage, baked beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, potato pancakes, haggis, toast, tea. It's wonderful. I'll do that at least once--ya gotta. Then I'll curb my wants and be a little more reasonable. Maybe I'll cut out the haggis.

Oh well, daydreaming about Scotland will have to wait. I have lots to do today so I better get going. Hope you all have a great day.

Oh! I almost forgot, Newt's friend Ellie has joined the blogging world. Go over and say welcome!

Wow, I sure hope you have fun on your trip! I am SO jealous! Haha!

Hey, I did not comment on my comments today, but I wanted to say that if Anna Nicole had not died, she would have been on my list too! Haha!

Actually, I am sick of the news media constantly talking about her. Let her alone! As far as Hillary is concerned, I agree with you, there could be a lot worse. :)

So glad you are feeling lots better! One day at a time! I just know that you are going to have the time of your life in Scotland.

Jay said...

Ok, you do whatever you have to do and I'LL take over the daydreaming about Scotland part.

Kell said...

Chelle--Yeah, it's kind of sad that even in death she can't get any peace, and neither can we.

Patsy--I can't wait for our trip. And I can't wait to post about it.

Jay--You're always so helpful.

I LOVE the cadbury eggs for easter. Little candy covered chocolate things. They are the best!

Wasn't haggis served as part of an immunity challenge on some season of Survivor? ;)

Neil said...

And remember to splash a little of the whisky on to the haggis... brings out the best of all the flavours/flavors.
