I'm still sniffing and snorting some from the last cold and James passed a new one on to me. I hurried out and bought a new bottle of vitamins with minerals so maybe if I get back in the habit of taking them again I won't be killing so many trees by using up so many kleenex, napkins, and toilet paper for blowing this honking big nose of mine.
I decided to take some benedryl for my watering eyes this morning and go back to bed. Benedryl makes me very sleepy but it doesn't shut out the squawks and whistles of Ya-Ya, who was pissed off because I dared to go to the bedroom where he couldn't see me. He paid no attention when I threatened to pluck him, and only hissed at me a little when I mentioned BBQed Ya-Ya on a stick.
The males around this place are so self-absorbed.
James made half a dozen trips in and out of the house this morning before he finally remembered, and found, all the things he'd forgotten, or lost, and went on his way to hunt poor, defenseless little quails. I thought about telling him he needed to tie a string around his finger, but after his 3rd trip back into the house, with wet boots on, I really wanted to tell him he needed to tie a rope around his neck so he'd remember. I did neither,,, I guess I'm getting
Zach's been having his annual instruction on Black History again and was surprised when his PopPop and I were able to answer all his questions correctly. He found it hard to understand that we'd actually been alive when Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in 1968. I'm also not sure he believes me when I tell him we used to have a dinosaur as a pet.
We've been wrestling with math homework again and today it was fractions. He's 3 days into a new semester, he was out of school for 2 weeks, and he had fractions last semester, (which was 2 weeks ago). Now he's acting as though he's never seen this stuff before. It makes me so frustrated that I want to run away, I'm just not sure where I'd go, or how far I'd get, with gas prices competing with the price of gold.
Oh, and since we're on the subject of prices, has anyone been able to afford beef lately? Corn, rice, wheat, and other grains, and soybean prices are higher now than I've ever seen them in my lifetime (probably anyone's lifetime). The farmers are ecstatic that the profits are rolling in but I wonder if any of them have been in a grocery store lately? (James went with me and he nearly had a cow,,, which would have been a good thing!) It could be that a good bit of those profits are going to go into their belly's. And it's gonna get worse before it gets better.
I'll be clucking soon due to all the chicken I've been buying (but it's going up too, just doesn't make my heart stop when I see the price,,,,at least not yet).
Okey Dokie, I'm done for the day. I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!
