Oh, Yucko!

Today I had a follow-up doctors appointment with my GP.  No problem; I could have stayed home.  On the way home I stopped and picked up some fries and a drink because I was feeling empty and it was too long till dinner.  Not much after getting back on the highway, while in the midst of bumper-to-bumper traffic moving along at a decent pace.  W H A M!!!!!!!!!!  A deafening bang against the passenger side of my car that bent the side mirror in against the car.  Then a sickening splat and blood drops on the car window.  I didn’t see anything in the rear view mirror except some trash in the roadway blowing around but something alive definitely hit my car on the passenger door.  I think the person in the lane next to me hit a small wild animal and their tire threw it up against my car.  Besides scaring the crap out of me, those French fries kind of lost their taste.  It was back to the car wash and popping the side mirror back into position with my hand afterwards.  There was still blood on the car when I got home but DH was kind enough to remedy that for me.  I haven’t been outside since!

We’re preparing for xmas here.  The tree is up, angel on top, tree skirt underneath.  Ornaments still lay on the table but they’ll get there.  Most everything is bought that will be bought so the only thing left is to heat that beautiful Honey-baked ham and trimmings for family.

The house is coming along—both of them actually.  This one is beginning to get better organized and there are few boxes left inside to unload.  You can see from one side of the garage to the other now but it has a long way to go.  All of the furniture is bought, delivered and in its proper place.  Trundle bed is in the guest room/office.  I’ve made 3 trips to goodwill, one to an individual collecting bags for foster children, and 1 trip to the animal shelter.  We have more to go but will have to pack some of this stuff up first.  Still sorting, and still looking for lost items as I come across their need.  The old house has been painted in and out, fence repaired, one out-building down, one to go.  Still needs landscaping and pressure-washing, then new floors will go down just before it goes on the market.   Some day we’ll be back to just one house to care for.  I can’t wait!

Well, time to go feed the canine children.  Be well!
