GET THIS!!!

so, @ 3 weeks ago my friend calls and it's my MIA friend "down hill girl" (we met skiing years ago"

anyhow - right before i moved, i had a cell phone issue (remember when i threw my phone?) and i lost her number

so out of the blue DHG calls me and she wants to go to lunch... i had to tell her the "bad news" that i moved.... and where...... she was all bummed because SHE TOO was moving and wanted to see me before she moved.... then she asked how far it was from "blah blah blah"

i busted up laughing - SHE IS LIVING 45 minutes away from here!!!!

turns out she needs to take a leave of absence from her floor at the cleveland clinic before she burns out and is doing a 3 month traveling nursing gig and they sent her to this podunk hospital on the other side of the city from me.... they will pay for her furnished apt, utilities, and everything except for car gas and food..... she had to be here friday morning to get her state nursing licence in person and she can't move in to her new place till monday so she stayed with me thursday and friday night (they finally got her a hotel room for last night and tonight).

so i am not alone anymore!!!

this girl is the only girl who can laugh at her own bad luck (she lost her ticket on the turnpike and had to pay the entire toll - $14.75) and her GPS got her lost so she didn't get to my place till 1 am!

i am SO EXCITED!

signs

have you even been driving and seen someone else and thought "they are an accident waiting to happen?"

yesterday i had that feeling twice w/in 10 minutes, both before 8 am - AND I WAS RIGHT!

the 1st - an 80's model, jacked up pick up truck - i literally saw it's front passengers tire fall off, bounce across the road and into the grass as the truck leaned forward so the back tire was in the air and the axle cut into the road shooting sparks everywhere...........

the 2nd - i got boxed in behind a 2nd truck w/ its tailgate down full of folding tables - sure enough, he had to slam on his breaks and out came the tables right in front of me......

thankfully i saw that one coming and, even though i had been unable to switch lanes i had been @ 5 car lengths back so i didn't get hit

but still.........

was yours as good as mine?

yeah, i bet that title got you all excited, hot & bothered....

well HA HA ----

they say labor day & the weekend that comes w/ it is supposed to be about relaxation for the "common" laboring man - and these days woman....

traditionally, it signaled the end of summer, and the beginning of school.... well, school started the week before for me, but i don't really mind that....

but my weekend was anything but lazy, and i didn't do anything i wanted to do or planned to do.............

and i did a hell of a lot of WORK:

see, my dog is all of 26 pounds & most of it is fluff

it took @ 100 hours to be sure i killed all the fleas

he never had them in our old town

my first official negative in this new city......

i hope your labor day weekend was better than mine
