Scarlett's dad called the other night and apologized to her.  She wasn't very impressed.  Whatever.

I have decided to let Scarlett go to mom's this weekend, despite my misgivings about the situation.  I may have to go get her early. If that is the case, then I will do so.  I'm looking forward to the break.  I'm also looking forward to the therapy session with Scarlett's therapist, my mom and my aunt.  Things need to be out in the open.

Very few people are here at work today.  I thought that would allow me to get more done.  However, it's only allowed me to read more live journal without caution.

Learning to work with only six icons is calling on my creative skills.  I just hope I don't lose my pictures.  I should be able to renew soon.

I had Scarlett lay out some chicken for dinner last night, and she was a bit freaked out by the lack of food in our refrigerator.  I had enough to feed us, and have enough to cover the weekend, or a few nights next week, but it's true we are down to bare bones.  I found some money and will spend it on gas, then groceries when Scarlett gets back home.  We're doing fine.  But that's one of the reasons I decided to let her to got mom's all weekend, to save on food.  Scarlett was NOT happy about my decision, but I believe she'll get over that.

Jasmine has taken to sitting on my lap when I sit in the "big chair".  She also prefers crumpled paper to cat toys.  Catnip doesn't prevent the three of them from swatting one another, in fact it makes Suzi a bit more aggressive.  ALLLL the catnip are belong to her! 

I think I will try to put plastic over the big windows in our bedrooms this year.  I'd also like to get some serious curtains for Scarlett's room, and possibly for the living room as well.  I might just re-hang the living room curtains in a better arrangement to block more air from coming through.  The rod broke last year, so they're hung with tacks right now.  How white-trash, but at least it's not a blanket in the window.  Whoo whee, yeah I've got class.  lol     Heck, a blanket might be more insulating.   Maybe that old quilt would help....

Okay. Time to turn up the sixties station and get to work.  Maybe this song will play today!

I'm sorry, but not matter HOW MANY times I see this, it ALWAYS makes me laugh!

People do such kind things.  I almost refrained from mentioning the shift in my account because I was afraid someone would take it as a nudge and pay me up for a few more months.  Thank you to whomever felt the urge to do so.  I am grateful, and once again humbled at the kindness of my friends list.

I made the coffee mug chocolate cake last night.  Scarlett and I ate it, and were only semi-impressed.  It turned out a bit rubbery, which is to be expected when making flour-based dishes in the microwave.  It was also a bit dry, which might have been alleviated by more milk or oil, I'm not sure which.  Once it was turned out of the mug, it was dimpled and had a cave in the center that would have been tasty filled with chocolate syrup, icing, or as Scarlett suggested, flavored cream cheese.  I'm raising her right, I tell you whut!

Have you ever had your sternum crack or pop?  Mine did this morning, it's been a while.  It was a bit of relief.

Leftover baked beans for lunch today.  Look out world! I'm runnin' on nitrogen!

For all my pork-lovin' friends!

The landscaping mulch being used at the mall across the street smells like spoiled barbecue. 

That's all for now.
