Weekend Roundup

I broke down and ordered a bathing suit online. I can’t find anything in stores so I’m trying this suit (FYI, I had a discount!): It’s a total crap-shoot. I’m not sure I even ordered the right size (I’m bigger than I want to admit now). If it works, then I can add a pair of shorts, or even a maxi skirt that Wizard hates and be good to go if we’re having a pool day.  Fingers crossed! 

Saturday I went to lunch and a little shopping with a friend, it was awesome to get out. Sunday–I thought of a solution to a book issue–now if it works, I’m going to be very happy. Then Wizard came home early from racing so we went in the Jacuzzi, made ribs and really relaxed. Then I went back to work :-)

I’m still trying to locate the Super Secret Password to get my medication. The insurance got the Pre-Certification but then decided that something isn’t correct.  Then the lady on the phone lectured me about not being proactive enough while the theme to Jaws played in my head.  I’m not sure how much more proactive I could while retaining my law-abiding citizen status.  It’s all good though because Special K wants to start a new business providing therapy for stressed out humans–sit the human in a room full of puppies. (She’s kidding, she sent me a picture of a woman covered in squirming puppies and told me that was her business plan which made me laugh). Who needs medication in a room full of puppies? Well unless you have allergies to puppy fur–then maybe :-)

Today Biker Witch is having a procedure done to help her with her klutziness oops, I meant back pain.  Send positive wishes her way–having me for a sister is a big enough pain, she needs to get free of this pain she’s been suffering for weeks now.

How was your weekend?

    Wow – I like that suit. It’s sexy. I hope it’s what you want when you get it in hand. Did you get the purple one?

    I’ve been having a terrible time finding a suit too. I ordered one from Beyondtherack but because of my missing bit on top it may take some work to get it to fit.

    Can’t wait to hear if the solution to the book works out. I’m sure it will.

    I HATE INSURANCE! The nerve to lecture you. You are a much nicer person than I. I would have let her have it with both barrels and demanded to speak with her supervisor. They’ve put you through enough crap.

    I love Special K’s idea. It would work too. Puppies and kittens are so good for the stressed :).

    I’m saying prayers for Biker Witch.

    Our weekend was nice. We all went out for the birthday dinner Sat. night to a place we’d never been. It’s supposed to be one of the best places in the Cleveland area. The food was fantastic. Only problem was they forgot our salads. No big deal to us but they were falling over themselves to make it up to us. They even brought over a platter with all of their desserts and candles for the guys for free. We couldn’t eat it all so we took it home :).

    I hope you have a great day!

    Awesome swimsuit! I probably should order a suit, too, but I’m still cramming myself into my old one. Good thing we don’t actually go swimming or anything. Sounds like you had a nice weekend (well, except for the insurance crap). I’m totally down with Special K’s idea. I’d pay to sit in a room full of puppies for an hour. Then she could offer adoption services for the puppies, so if you wanted to take a special one home, you could. =o) Positive thoughts headed out for Biker Witch.

    Hubs got the plumbing done! And only one leak, which we dealt with quickly. Then we spent the rest of Saturday hanging out. Yesterday, he and I went for a nice drive and then breakfast at a real restaurant. We continued taking time off home improvement and just chilled. Today… back at it.

    Viki, yep that’s the color I got, they called it blueberry. But we’ll see, I’m pretty skeptical because I’m so out of shape.

    I agree with you on insurance. It’s beyond frustrating.

    At least the restaurant handled the salad snafu with grace, and your dinner was good. But it doesn’t it seem like these things are happening more and more lately? Or maybe I’m just less patient.

    B.E., I’m so impressed that you guys did all that plumbing! Wizard can do sprinkler lines, and fix a sink but beyond that, he pretty much hates doing it and I hate HEARING him do it, LOL! You guys are very talented!

    I really need those puppies.

    I’m cramming myself into all my clothes lately–it’s not pretty or comfortable.

    Sending good thoughts to Biker Witch. I would soooo invest in Special K’s business and would be in line to be a client! ;) Yay on working out the book glitch.

    Don’t EVEN get me started on insurance and medical systems. Lawyer Guy is caught up in the VA mess. He went to call in a refill on a new prescription. Yeah, it’s been removed from the VA’s pharmacology (it’s not longer available) and the new drug to replace it? ISN”T FREAKING AVAILABLE YET!!!!!! *breathes deep* Okay. No ranting over here. It’s Monday. I have deadlines. I have a name for my Harlequin series (FROM Harlequin) so it looks like 2 books will be more. :D

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Silver, great news on your series!

    What the hell on the VA??? What’s LG supposed to do? I’ll keep my fingers crossed it works out.
