    awww...sorry for CCC but I do think it will be good for her to see that it is okay...and important to realize that sometimes sacrifice is part of being in a family...but, I feel so badly for her

    Yes, you read that right. 3:30. And I was up 2 hours later. And am paying the price now.

    Yesterday:

    Take Houston friend to airport
    Supermarket on the way home; PO, stop to see Blond German Friend, who has just been told her mom is dying of stomach cancer; BGF has to go home to see her and is in about the condition you'd expect
    Rest of the day: large amounts of food, phone calls, and sleep
    Finally unpack suitcase and straighten up; I am becoming allergic to chaos, can't stand a mess; who are you and what have you done with JA?
    Do not go to group class as I cannot get my feet into shoes

    Re-read the Travel Section of the local newspaper from Sunday.
    Decide to "keep" travel section, listing 49 unadvertised places to visit in San Francisco, so interesting I gotta do this.
    Head off to garden shop - 4 artichoke plants, let's just say that artichokes grow madly in my garden and I LOVE them.
    Call from doctor, "must start bone density therapy today"...uhhhh, ok. Head off to pharmacy.
    Start shopping for kitchen cabinets, decision made on new kitchen counter,,,,I'm so excited!
    Facebook to see #1 grandson in his practice baseball get-up, as he proudly tells me,,,,4 teams wanted him and out of xyz number of kids (let's talk hundreds) he's ranked 17th.
    His smile is so big,,it makes me laugh.
    Note good weather for this weekend, deciding to nab #2grandson and have a nana and me day with him...which could be wickedly fun without anyone else around...probable beach trip to Huntington Beach...and a bike ride.
    Cook up some great soup, start searching for cooking classes, one of my passions I would like to pursue more.

    I am so sorry to hear about your friend's Mom, JA. Losing a loved one to cancer is a terrible thing. I can't imagine what it would be like if that loved one was my mother.

    I am glad she has you as a friend.

    Monday: Go skate. Manage some more things that were hard that used to be easy and are getting easy again. Contemplate that I have an obsession-prone personality, perhaps. Deposit checks at the credit union (last paycheck, payment 3 of 4 for green dress, and check I didn't know I had coming but did from consignment store-bonus!), stop at Martin's for fruit I forgot to buy Saturday at Meijer (and wind up with cheese and other things, too. However, fruit was apples, apples and Brie go to together...snack when I get home.) Cook chicken thighs. Stock up for lousy Tuesday weather.

    Cincinnati chili. A "two-way" is the basic chili over noodles. A "three-way" adds cheese to that. A "four-way" adds onions, and a "five-way" adds beans. (That's the way Gold Star does it, IIRC; other places may be the other way around.) Cincinnati chili is somewhat of an acquired taste; it looks like regular chili but is spiced differently.

    I know about all that chili stuff...I thought they were talking about vet lingo though....maybe I need to go back and read more carefully

    cinci chili, also as peaches makes it is definitely a different breed of chili and is delicious...one of the very few exceptions I ever made to the walmart rule was that they used to sell cans and frozen packs of skyline chili, which I would go in and buy for my son

    We were, but that's all the more reason why I asked. The same set of words can mean a ton of different things.

    Apparently, five way = a set of doggie vaccinations, a really awesome chili combo, or a weird sex thing.


    Any more definitions? *wiggly eyebrows*
