Lack of Sleep

My lack of sleep and MOM‘s increase of pain has made me funnier (in person anyways.  my blog post probably won’t be very entertaining).  There is something adventurous about mom commanding me not to make her laugh because it hurts her kidney.  But she did just inform me that she was happier now that I’m home from work.  I replied, "Me, too."  She didn’t believe me, so I said, "I am" and then turned to look at her and smiled ever so charmingly until she laughed and then scolded me.

So anyways, I’m completely addicted to caffeine.  Preferably in the form of Tazo Awake or Bigelow Vanilla Almond tea.  If I don’t get my cup of tea in the morning, I will get a splitting headache and will consume any form of caffeine I can find.  This usually consists of the Standard brand coffee at Home Depot made for redneck contractors that can’t tell how bad it tastes through their mouthful of tobacco.  Yet I digress.

When you are addicted to tea, and haven’t the time to make it yourself, it is especially helpful to appoint yourself a tea-maid.  Here is mine:

She also doubles as a goat maid turtle killer.  But she puts up with my oddities, because she’s neat like that and I am quite particular about the way my tea is made.  It has to steep for 10-15 minutes.  It can be made in one of two cups, which are exactly alike in shape and size, but have different designs.  She tried putting it in another mug once, and I had to dump it into "my" cup before it was drinkable.  It has to be filled nearly to the rim.  Oh. My. Heavens.  One time Ryann made my tea and it was about 1 inch below the rim.  My obsessive compulsive behaviour which I *try* to keep under control flared up and I about had a heart attack.  I fumbled around for about two minutes saying, "Um…I don’t think I can drink that.  No, really.  I can’t."  I had to heat up more water and add that 2 tablespoons before I could drink it.  Pathetic, I know.

This post is pointless, eh?  Just more random info about me.  I need to go to bed.

    Emmi looks like quite the backwoodsie person with her bandanna on her head and a fur around her next. Definitely not a PETA spokeswoman.

    Believe it or not, I'm kinda with you on the tea thing. But my favorite is Market Spice – I might have to bring you a box. There's so much flavor in those bags, they're actually moist. Crazy. And every vanilla variety I've tried has smelled far better then it tasted. Tazo is okay, but a little on hippie side.

    Notice I love stereotyping? 🙂

    See ya in 10 days – wait, you won't be there!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. We'll just have to play with bean bags with out Ms Nicole….er, U Turkey.

    PS. Sorry about all the junk showing up at your door. Feel free to feed it to the goats if space runs out in laundry room.

    PPS. Basic to Baghdad makes me chuckle.

    PPPS. TOS seems to use Julie alot in advertising.

    PPPPS. There's a cool guy who sells zipline materials who is friends with the guys who run the Rebelution. You'll have to tell me about sometime. Anywhoo, his site is – Nathan Sleadd runs it. He also knows AgentTimOnline… Homeschoolers can be darn industrious.

    Charilie: that is not a fur around emmiko's neck. She's holding a goat.

    give jess a hug for me and tell her to hurry up and find my birthday card before you guys get here.

    oh yeah, hi coie. nice post. i like the word charmingly

  3. Ah yes… Upon closer inspection

    I see that, and I also see that it's her own personal fur on the far left edge. Thank you for bringing this to my attention! 🙂

    I orginally thought perhaps Bo and a friend found the world's largest squirrel and gave the tail to Emmerz.

    Hope you're feeling a wee tad smidge better today.
