Life and other piddly crap...

So apparently my Vote for Ed campaign worked really well and Heba was not one of the final three. But, that backfired on my ass and she won the loser portion and $100 grand - arghh. But, did you all watch the finale? VICKY LOST AND ONLY LOST TWO POUNDS SINCE THE LAST SHOW! Muwahahahaha! Oh yea, and my girl Michelle, whom is a local FORT WORTH gal, WON! Whoot! Whoot!

Life around the Kat homestead is a little bit hectic right now. Workmen have taken over my house and continue to make things last longer than promised. Currently everything from the socks I wear on my feet to the furniture in my master bedroom is tucked either into the spare bedroom or the hallway and Hubby and I are sleeping in there as well. (The spare bedroom, not the hall) Hmmm... Hubby and I have never shared a queen size bed in our entire married life. Even in hotel rooms with two beds we sleep in our own bed. This is proving to be a challenge, thus Kat blogging at 10:30 at night...

But, the painter shall start Friday, the tile dude did a fabulous job on the floors and shower, counter tops won't be in until January 19th or so and the carpet is basically waiting on the painter dude to finish and then you throw in Christmas to that mix and who knows when my life will stop being topsy turvy?

Another BUT, I have completely finished all my Christmas shopping although it is all stacked over at my mother's house and I still have yet to figure out a time to go over there and wrap and stuff. Thus anxiety levels are getting high over here, well at least mine are...

But the good news in all of this, had another MRI this week to measure and see if the liver tumors have grown and the result is that there is no significant growth to the tumors so I am free until April when I have to do another scan. Which kind of makes me wonder, have I ever mentioned this? If not, surprise!

Also finished the annual family calendar and I must say my craftiness impressed even me! June, you will be so jealous, but did you know that they have scrapbook software that has all the pages you could ever want or imagine already made and all you have to do is drop in your pictures? Sorry a little late in sharing that with you, but who knew?

Trying to catch up on everyone else's life, just wanted to let you know that a) No, I have not learned any Spanish in the last week but I have learned that I have a great distaste for Spanish music, b) I'm alive, c) Soon, very soon, I will no longer have a concrete floor in my bedroom after three very long years and d) I'm still a Scrooge! BUT, what else is new?

I wonder how many times I used the word but in this one entry? Hmmm...

I guess America spoke with Heba being voted out! HAHAHAH. But I was SO shouting at the TV to NOT let Heba win the $100. It would have been such sweet revenge if Amy or her hubby had won. And I am SO glad icky Vicky didn't win the grand prize and so happy for Michelle!!

Even though it's crazy at your house at least you are seeing progress.

Did I know about these liver tumors?

And now that you are so proficient at scrappbookking, we ALL know who to call now!!

Lulu said...

Liver Tumors??? You are so fired.

I wonder if Heba was surprised not to be in the final 3. I think she felt she would be picked since she conned Ed into begging the public to vote for her.

Michelle looked GREAT! It was so nice to see a WONDERFUL person win instead of that bitch Vickie.

I watched the biggest looser which I never do but I knew you would be watching and I wanted to see how the outcome of our votes were!! Hoot Hoot.
Glad the turmors are still the same, yes I knew I remember all that crap you went through. I so hated that for you.
As for wrapping house remodeling take a deep breath and do what our little buddy does have a glass or two of wine!! Me, I drink eggnog,just touch the hard stuff, but since I don't drink it hits me fast!!! Anway it makes me not care if this is done or not!! Take care and don't stress too much and Have the Best Christmas ever. Hugs, Pat

Hold the phone--you and hubby have never shared a queen size bed??? Do you guys have your own personal twin size beds like Lucy and Ricky?? ;) AND I can't believe that you sleep in your own separate bed at hotel rooms. That's funny stuff right there.

Jess said...

Liver tumors? If these were mentioned, I missed them! Glad things look good on that front, though...

I think Michelle winning the grand prize outweighs Heba winning the consolation prize.

Jane! said...

Yeah... I was going to say liver tumors???
I have to say that I admire your mettle for starting all that remodeling BEFORE Christmas. That's a nice way of saying 'you need your head examined'. :o)
I'm just jealous, tho.

Yay Michelle! I thought you would be pleased.

Liver tumors???? Seriously? I'm gonna come over there and whoop your ass if you pull something like this again! You don't just "slip" something like that into an entry. You hear me? Now that we have that straight, are you ok?

"Hubby and I have never shared a queen size bed in our entire married life. Even in hotel rooms with two beds we sleep in our own bed." Do you mean to say that your bedroom resembles Ricky & Lucy Ricardo's 1950's style room? As in two separate beds?

You and your hubby don't share a bed and you have liver tumors? Man you think you know someone....

The Lady in Pearls said...

Oh and just throw that whole "And didgya know how easy scrapbooking can be?" at me, why don't you. And just where were you when I was in scrapbook hell???

BJB said...

Ok, so I'm not the only one who missed the little things you casually call liver tumors!!!

really, never ever in your married life? are you sure your not forgetting right after you were married?!? I remember sleep with Shawn in a twin bed when I was in college & thinking it was cozy but that there was plenty of room. Ha!
