New and Notes

Lots of people talk to animals.... Not very many listen, though.... That's the problem. ~Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

Woke up with an amazingly bad headache, so any brilliant ideas I might have had for a blog post escape me (and it seems like I *did* have something to say).

We still haven't found any swallowtail caterpillars. The day before our insanely bad storm last week, we thought we had a black swallowtail laying eggs on the rue -- but have to assume that the wind and deluge of rain must have killed the eggs. DD is very sad at the thought of having NO swallowtail pillars. With the exception of the one black swallowtail butterfly we saw, we've seen no others. Very sad.

I pulled up all the lettuce in my garden -- it had bolted and was bitter. Everything else appears to be VERY happy, though. And several plants I thought were dead (leaves shriveled to the ground) apparently decided they were only taking naps. I have three cucumbers and an eggplant coming back from the ashes, so to speak.

My mom is moving back here after leaving us almost four years ago to live in California. She's slowly driving cross country, visiting family. Her last solo stop is Kansas City, where my DH will go pick her up and drive her back. We're very excited to see her again! Only ten more days...

Father's Day is Sunday and we haven't gotten so much as a card for DH. I should probably remedy that today.

DD has two more days of school... she's VERY excited to be done. And her new school starts off with a barbecue / orientation for their first day, so that should be fun. She's thinking about playing soccer... something she's never done. So, I'll probably invest in a soccer ball and she and I will practice over the summer.

Maria Zannini has a new book out. She sneaked that sucker through without even letting us know she was WORKING on it. Just BOOM! Oh, by the way, I have a book out... sneaky, sneaky.

I bought $66 worth of stuff at CVS yesterday for $14 (including toothpaste, deodorant, fish oil, gum and a razor and refill blades. My best scoop yet.

And that's about all my brain can say today. Sorry... hopefully my meds kick in soon and I can function normally.

Hope you all have a great day!


You Would Be a Logical Doctor

You are a very rational person, and it's nearly impossible for you to be swayed by emotions.

As a doctor, you would let logic be your guide. And with it, you'd find some ingenious remedies and cures.

You are a natural problem solver. And you never give up until the problem is solved.

You would be well suited to being a neurologist, pathologist, or oncologist.

That's mostly right.

Hope you feel better. Sorry about the rain washing away the butterflies. We have had an unnatural amount of rain this year too. It's already June and outsite it still feels like April.

Hope you feel better.

That is great news about your mom moving back east.

You're the kind of person who's concerned with facts and figures.

As a doctor, you would be up on the latest research and take detailed notes about your patients.

You would be just as concerned with keeping your patients healthy through preventative medicine as you would with curing them.

You would be well suited to being an orthopedic surgeon or radiologist. You would also do well running a general practice.

It's moderately accurate.

Have a good day!

Sorry to hear about your headache. I hope you feel better soon! Great news about your Mom! Those who read here regularly know how very much you miss her.
Whatever happened with that empty field that some company was mowing and you told them about the 'pillars that liked it there?

You are a natural caretaker, and people tend to immediately feel at ease with you.
As a doctor, you would be known for your bedside manner and calm approach with patients.
You would feel genuine concern for your patients. Your patients' comfort would be just as important as their health.
You would be well suited for being an anesthesiologist or pediatrician. You would also be ideal for running a general practice.

Pretty much accurate.

I hope you have a good day (after ditching the headache!). Hugs!

I can't sneak anything past you. LOL.

Thanks for the mention! I'll be contacting Goddeess Fish/LASR pretty soon too.

Is the headache weather related? We could use some of your rain down here. Very dry. Very hot.
