Speaking of doctors, I was ticked off. This was my first visit since the surgery to a regular doctor, and when we called to make the appointment, I mentioned that I was in need of getting my asthma meds prescription refilled again. They said I'd have to make a separate appointment for that one, because they could only discuss one issue/symptom at a time. WT?! No wonder our health systems are so freaking screwed up! Yes, let's pay multiple visits just cause. /sarcasm. And yeah, that appointment didn't go too well. I was in tears, because I can't seem to get an answer other than "it takes awhile". Um, yeah, I understand that, but it doesn't solve what the underlying problem is!
Blech. See why I avoid doctors like the plague?
The weather has been lovely the last couple of days, so I have been trying to work in the garden a bit more. We had gotten some strawberry plants for free, but they needed to be weeded desperately. DH put them in the bin I used last year for the zucchini and raised it up for me on a tree stump so I didn't have to bend over, and that went a lot easier! I've been looking at some recycled planter ideas and contemplating how I want to plant them. I'm thinking off the ground would mean not having to fight those annoying slugs we get so much - but then again, they can't spread out. And also, there's always the possibility of plastic leaching into the soil. Decisions, decisions...
Poor DH - he came home from work yesterday and I immediately wrangled him into doing things outside. Mean ol' me! ;)
Have you ever read Watership Down? DH always looks at me like I'm insane when I go on and on about the book and movie. It was one of my favorites as a child - clearly, I love bunnies - but DH has never heard of it. I have got to find a copy for the kiddo. I know it's scary at moments, but I know I was really young when I was introduced to it. (Yes, Pippi's name, the rabbit we rescued several years ago, came from Pipkin in the book)
...is it bad I'd love to adopt a bunch of rabbits and give them names from the book? lol Before someone flips out, rabbits can be fixed - I'm not talking about being overrun with rabbits like that episode of Hoarders! (Yikes!)
Oh Oh Oh - I want to go to this! Hornady Sponsors Zombie 3-Gun Match: "Zombies in the Heartland - Pandemic 2012" How much fun would that be?! Expensive though - yowser.
This is a little cheaper: Zombie Pub Crawl Though, we did a ghost themed pub crawl out here once, and it was a disaster. The people on the crawl were there to drink, and only to drink. They didn't care at all about any of the stories being told, which was a shame. We were totally out of place there too. (That was the famous day where one of the drunk people came up to me and told me she loved my costume. Um... I wasn't wearing a costume - that was me, every day.... but whatever.) We quit halfway through it.
Speaking of drinking, Nanobrewery places zombies on the right track Hehe. Actually, you could support a small business with this one. :) No one show this to DH though, he might get ideas. He's still wanting to make mead.
