Hear What I'm Not Saying

I had the weirdest dream last night. So weird that, when I woke up in the middle of the night, I emailed my friend Ana because she was the main character in the dream besides me. Here is a copy of the email with interpretations I looked up and inserted later. (I got the interpretations from

Beddie Bye

Time to go to sleep. I'm tired a little and know I need to go to bed, though I'm dragging my feet... well not actually as I am in bed... what to do with me, hahaha...

I have decided that Nasal Decongestants are a gift from God. I've been starting to have another of those horrible earaches again and this evening I found a way to help it drain. Let's have a moment of silence in thanks....

Tomorrow I go again to my really cool job. I am SO grateful for this job!!

My sweet love has been asleep for awhile. She lights my life. I think I'll join her. :o)

Night Out

Went with Carrie tonight to hit a few stores. Didn't get a lot of what we had set out for but got a few things we needed and a few things we... decided we needed... heh...

On the way there, she suggested we eat out and I was in total agreement. We haven't really been out to do something fun in awhile. We ended up at the Hollywood Casino by the river. The buffet was overpriced and not as impressive of some of your cheaper variety buffets, but it was fun. We played a few machines. Overall I think Carrie won $2 and I was in the red. But hey, it was just for fun. We had a really nice time and spent some good relaxing time together. We needed that.

There is a cat who hangs out outside a store near our house. He is SO sweet and cute... looks just like my Vladimir only without the white socks. We gave him some food this evening. I have named him Smokey Lonesome like the homeless guy in Fried Green Tomatoes... plus the store fronts the railroad track that passes through the center of town. Sweet.

My Vladimir... :o) That's him up top, a few months ago. He gets bigger and stronger and sturdier every time I look away from him for a minute! So... later!

Nice night out with my Boo.
