Two-One-One-Two

February is here! Whoa huh? Seemed like January just slipped on by. It was a tough month so I am glad it is behind us. I am hopeful that February is going to be better (the eternal optimist in me) Last night was uneventful. I had a cheese sandwich for dinner and some Pop Chips Salt & Pepper flavor. I recently ordered a variety pack and that was one of the options. I just looked at their website and now they have a Sweet Potato flavor. That sounds tasty to me.

My mom may be coming home today. I have to call in an hour and talk to the Doctor. Since it is so soon, she will be going home first (vs. assisted living) but may need 24 hour care. I have resources in place and we can assess what her needs will be once she is actually home again.  We are still investigating alternatives but at least she can come home for a little while.

Mini-Rant ahead: As I anticipated, my brother has not been helpful. In fact, he has complicated the situation and is duplicating my efforts. Even the Social Worker at the Hospital said she was going to call him and tell him to "knock it off!" I have asked him to do some research and I have yet to hear back from him. He is not working right now so you would think he would be on it but apparently she is not a priority to him. Rant over

So yesterday at lunch time, I got hit on by this cute guy and I realized how out practice I am when it comes to flirting and getting hit on. It was a morale booster for sure when he said "How beautiful" I am more then once. He is 5 years younger then me and I mentioned it to one of my coworkers and she said "Cougar!" When did I become old enough to be a Cougar? Yikes!

Not sure how today will pan out so I guess we'll see. Until next time...

  1. I tried the sweet potato but did not like them much. Not enough flavor. The new chili lime is pretty good.. but neither can beat the bbq or cheese for me..

  2. I like Popchips, but I can't just eat a serving of them so I don't buy them. I always wondered how one has a Cheese sandwich? Is it like Grilled cheese or just a slice of cheese on bread lol? I Love cheese so much, but was never fond of grilled cheese, and for me the thought of just cheese and bread on a sandwich doesn't sound very filling. I have to have mondo sandwiches, Avocado as my spread and spicy brown mustard, cheese, chicken breast with onion, tomato,alfalfa sprouts and spinach or iceberg lettuce. My family and friends say I make the best sandwiches, I wish I could make one for the world!!! lol

  4. Sometimes I think anyone over the age of 25 is considered a cougar anymore. But that might just be me, being jaded... (and WAY over 25, LOL)

  5. Pop Chips Salt and Pepper flavor is my favorite!

    I don't think 5 years younger qualifies you as a Cougar - I think it has to be more like 10 or 15 lol!

  6. Haha, it takes more than a 5 year age difference to be a cougar.. :P BUT, how great isn't it to be hit on? Go for it!

  7. I'm with Helen and Maren on this one. (not to be confused with Helen Miren... silly...) I think it takes WAY more than 5 years difference to hit the cougar point. :)
    May February be peaceful and happy for you Katie. You deserve it.

  10. Naw you aren't old enough to be a cougar and 5 years age difference isn't enough for a cougar. Glad your mom is doing well enough to go home. Hope she continues to do well.
