i got flowers too!!!! look————–>

2008 02140012

yes, it is true, mamie and poppa strike again!!!! it’s so funny – every year, for about the last 10, my grandparents send me flowers on valentine’s day. every year, there is a moment – whether or not i have had a boyfriend or what have you – that i think “wow! someone sent me flowers!!” – and then wah wah wahhhhhhhhh…. from the grandparents! it’s funny, because it is definitely a wonderful thing, so sweet but there is always just a tiny moment where i have this hope that somebody sent me flowers (and i mean sent them to me, not my dog (sorry brian! ;)!! ). also funny is how there names get interpreted on the cards from time to time, one year i had to seriously question my poppa about who the heck “mimi” was – i thought maybe he’d picked up a little french croissant on the side…. in any event, how lucky am i to have such wonderful grandparents and be so close to them!! and i know someday someone of the opposite sex – to whom i am not related – will send me flowers too (note: roses of any color, stargazer lilies and peonies)

also, today seems like a new chapter! i’ve been quite sick this last week, actually, counting today, i have missed 3 days of work. it’s been like the flu/cold bug, but it also went straight into my ear giving me a very unpleasant ear ache. so i got on antibiotics right away, but was feeling pretty crappy up until today. my ear actually is STILL hurting – despite the fact that i finally harassed PATIENT FIRST LAST into giving me pain meds for my danged ear, but i actually feel some energy this morning and just walked mags to the starbucks. of course, even through my sickness i did go get my roots bleached out last evening with the wonderful stacy – she is helping me channel my inner marilyn – or as she always says when we are all done – “look! tinkerbell is back!”


(extremely fuzzy pic from the camera phone, but you get the gist)

in any event, today is feeling like a new day, like spring has sprung. i’ve got a lot of not so fun stuff going on – work, taxes, money stuff in general, health issues – stuff that has been brewing for a while, but i’m feeling optimistic at the moment. either the tide is turning or all that cough medicine is kicking in.



  1. Glad to hear you’re feeling better. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    I feel spring is coming, too. Hopefully it will be a good year. I’m thinking Vegas in July. Interested?

  3. So glad to hear you’re on the mend. 🙂
