Bored beyond words

This weekend has been the most boring weekend I have had in a long time. The only thing we did that was any fun was go out to breakfast this morning to the Clown House again. It was packed and we had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. But it was worth the wait. There food is delicious. Rebecca had scrambled eggs, toast and bacon and orange juice. Jim had 2 huge belguim waffles and bacon, Joe had 2 eggs, home fries, scrapple toast, french toast, grapefruit juice, and I had a spanish omelet, toast and coffee. That omelet was delicious. It had tomato's, onions, peppers and cheese in it. I make mine different though, using ham, jalepeno peppers, tomato's, peppers and onions and a little warmed salsa on the top. Delicious!!!!

Mommom I had a new pacemaker put in. The stent is getting done on tuesday. There putting it in her kidney or near her kidney. She is weak, bored, and wants to come home, but she knows she can't right now. She'll be in the hospital for thanksgiving. She is not happy about that. I told Joe I will fix her up a little plate and he can take it to her. He said she will love that. Today she was getting surprise visitors. Joe's sons, Joe Jr and Nicky and Joe's grandson Wesley came over and went to the hospital with Joe to see their mommom. I just know she loved that. I will find out tomorrow from Joe how the visit went.

Back to school tomorrow, yeaaaaaaaaaaaa. I am looking forward to getting out and being in the classroom again. I was able to get to the thrift store last week. I found a pair of almost new Nike airlift sneakers that actually fit me and are so comfortable. I also found lots of clothes for myself, and a couple christmas decorations and a pillow to brighten up my all black couch. Green tags were the half price that day, and everything I bought had a green tag, so instead of paying 58.00, I paid 29.00. My items filled 3 13 gallon trashbags. Yep, I found alot and I am happy. I'll have pictures soon. I have to clear out my camera. It seems that my 6yr old photographer has been at it again taking pics, lol. She loves taking pics of the tv. I asked her why. She says, so I can remember the shows I watched, lol. Kid is too much.

Well, I am tired so I guess I am going to call it a night. I have been up since6:20 this morning. I see some of you are getting snow already. Ewwwwww, I am not looking forward to that. It is 42 degree's outside right now and raining. Good night all.

Love ya................................CINDY

  8. Morning Cindy,  Sorry you had a boring weekend.  Probably all the excitment of trying to think ahead to Thanksgiving..It can get some people a bit stressed and they want to just shut off. And you have had Mommom on your mind as well. I am so glad she seems to be doing well. Joe will be much happier as well.  Hope all goes well at school this week.  do you have a holiday from school for Thanksgiving  Love  Sybil xx

  9. I want that breakfast!  
    Joseph Manna of Magic Smoke said that our journals were not meant to support animated graphics, and that they often won't.  Another journaler said that Photobucket should work to support animated graphics.  you can get there by going to   they let you do some things for free. i have a lot of my graphics there.  hope that helps.

    Krissy :)

  10. You should have come into the chat room, we were definitely not bored in there, what a a laugh we had, glad to know that Mommom will be having her thanksgiving food.  I use photobucket as Krissy mentioned and you know I have animated graphics on my journal.  I gave up using any other way a long time ago.  Hope you get the parcel soon.
