This week has been a bit crazy. The weather has been cooler and it’s rained several nights. This has messed badly with my Trigeminal Neuralgia and I’ve been miserable. So much so, that I am not going to see the new Fantastic Beasts movie today; because I’m in such pain. I know I won’t enjoy it, so I’m not going to waste my money in misery.
Tuesday was my son’s first college “Jazz Concert”. What an incredible experience. He is a great musician and I so look forward to where God is taking him. In the program, he was listed first name “El Oso de Jazz” last name – drums. (The Jazz Bear) Which I found to be so cute, so it’s his new nickname around here. LOL! The funny thing is I’ve always called my family some kind of bear, so this is perfect. ❤
This morning was a tragic, crazy time for me. The dogs got me up at about 7 am and I let them out. I turned around and there was a frog on the glass door. I quickly shut the door and he was trapped between the two doors. I tried to work the doors so that he could get outside; but he was trapped and I was freaking out. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get the frog to go outside. Well, I wound up squishing him and I felt terrible. Due to him being squished in the track and all, I couldn’t fully shut the door.
In this house, we spell fear “F-R-O-G”. Doesn’t matter the species: frog, toad, what have you, it is faced with FEAR! UGH!!! This is from a childhood of torment by my sister to me with them and I have to say it is embarrassing; but it’s my life.
Now, because it was only 52 degrees this morning, my face was filled with stabbing pain the likes of which I wanted the earth to open up and swallow me into it just to escape the horrible pain. I took some meds and went back to bed.
When I finally did get up, I let the dogs out, again and the dead frog popped out on the track and was ready for removal. I went to get my son to have him take it out for me. Of course, he’s as brave as me when it comes to these things, so I had to give him a set of long handled tongs in which he picked it up and escorted it out of the house to the fence to be tossed over. He dropped the thing twice on the way; but mission complete. We then threw the tongs away.
We have church tomorrow and he has plans for the evening tonight. I will eventually get to see the new movie and I’m sure I’ll review it. My son teased me about it when I told him I couldn’t wait to see it and then get it on DVD, along with Bohemian Rhapsody. He stated, “Oh, so you’ll now have three movies on the weekly rotation instead of just “Fantastic Beasts”. LOL! He knows me so well.
I went Turkey Day shopping yesterday; because I knew I had to get it done. I got our small turkey for only $5 and I’m thrilled. Bought all the fixings for it as well and I’m ready. Got two pies — Chocolate Cream and Pecan. Should be a nice day for us.
I truly hope that you and yours have an extremely blessed Thanksgiving. Don’t gobble ’til you wobble and be careful on Black Friday.
