And no dreams of curry even

...but I am definitely on the easily irritable side today. Darn dog keeps whining for no reason. Darn kid plugged the toilet. Darn ragweed is making my breathing life miserable (as opposed to my non-breathing life?? Haha!).

Waaaitaminute, aren't I supposed to be happier? Heh heh

Actually, writing this out has made me happier. Holding things in does rot the insides. Who said that? No matter; our mom should learn that lesson too, eh, Epi?

I think I'll be even happier when 1) the boys get settled into their piano and theory lessons, 2) dh's dad has moved here and settled into the assisted living facility, 3) when we have closed and settled on the land, and last, but certainly not least, 4) when my dear sister arrives! Notice "settle" occurs in 3 of the 4 conditions. I guess I just like being settled. I really am a dull, no-surprises-please person.

"To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge." ~ Benjamin Disraeli (1804 - 1881)

It really is strange how alike we are! I don't like surprises either. Just leave me alone and don't interrupt me when I'm reading. Now that you mention it, my dog is acting strange too. He wants to be ON me, nearly, all the time! He wants in my lap, he wants on me when i am in bed. He just flops down and sighs. ??? Maybe his tummy hurts after all that cabbage and rutabaga. eewww. He may sleep outside, tonight.
Be Happy! I hope everything works out for ya and everything gets "settled".

I'm totally a dull, no surprises person too. I like to be comfortable and know what is going to happen next.
