Well, didn't I just disappear? I wish I had excuses like an exotic vacation or moving to a fancy, new home but alas...mostly it's been due to my complete obsession to the Casey Anthony trial. And I don't use the term "obsession" lightly...I'm probably an expert on all this stuff now. My obsession started the first night the news reported Caylee missing (this is all going on the next county over from me) and hasn't let up since. The funny thing is how this whole area is obsessed...any medical office you go into, the trial is on. Traffic is noticeably lighter while it's on. People are discussing it in great detail in checkout lines and running errands during lunch recess. Most of us say we're on jury duty, lol, since we are there for everything the jury is and we deliberate amongst ourselves. The moment recess is called, friends and neighbors begin calling and texting to discuss what just happened. I've had 2 neighbors tell me church was near empty today (well, yesterday), since Belvin had court in session on a Sunday. I just don't know what I'm going to do with myself when this is over, y'all. Sleep in some? Mop, finally? Watch People's Court again?
But, I have had other things going on. A couple of weeks ago, we noticed Beatrice, The Casserole Cat's eye looked funky, like it had a murky, clumpy film on it. She's not a cat that looks you in the eye often (she's a shifty thing) and we keep the house very dark inside day and night, so it could have been that way for awhile. I took her to the vet, only to find out her eye was ulcerated. I felt awful. :-( See her poor eye? It's her left one, the one to your right.
ordeal. Let's see...what else? Well, I flooded. Well, not *me; that's not happened in years. Anyway, it didn't get in the house, so that's good and just ignore that semi-painted door and messy back patio. For the record, a few minutes after this was taken, that stray umbrella stand was in water. Ooooh, let's play "Find The Item"...can you find the shovel still in the ground? If you can, your prize is knowing that's where we buried Gina and forgot to put the shovel away. *twitch*
