1. I got home from work and began the usual ritual with the girls — they went out to take care of business and then came in for their supper! I was messing with them and egging on their excitement by dancing around with the food dishes and trying to make a game out of it! As I sat each dish down, I solicited cheek kisses from each — Megan gave me a little one (she was much more interested in getting to that dish) — Amy gave me several excited ones (as usual, she was more than willing to forget about her supper in exchange for a love-fest) — then, just as I leaned down to get one from Katie, she jumped back to make room for her dish on the floor and corked me good!!! Her head connected with my bottom lip and smashed it into my top teeth — the blow busted open the inside of my lip! I yelled “OUCH!” and it scared Katie — I hugged her to let her know it was OK and she went about eating her supper. I could taste the blood as I finished getting the girls fed and when they were back outside playing, I went in to the bathroom mirror to check out the damage! It was cracked open and bleeding and there was a nice little lump on the inside and the outside was swollen up!!! I had a busted lip!!! ha-ha-ha That’ll learn me.…..don’t put my face down into an excited dog jumping around – it might get bopped!!!
2. I didn’t sleep good last night – I tossed and turned most of the night and was wide awake for long stretches………..so, I was pretty tired when I got home from work. I curled up on the couch to watch Dancing With The Stars and within seconds – before it even started – I fell sound asleep and didn’t wake up until almost midnight!!! Luckily, through the magic of the internet, I was able to find out who got booted off — just as I predicted — Adam Corolla went home! Yeah, I know – it didn’t take a rocket scientist to predict that one! If he hadn’t gone home tonight, something would have been very wrong!!! BUT – back to the point here – that’ll learn me…….don’t curl up on the couch when I’m tired unless I’m prepared to fall asleep and without setting the recorder in case I do fall asleep!!!
