Yes, I'm "monkey painting". In our family, that means that you are painting something in the manner of a primitive monkey. In other words, pretty sloppy. If you're painting walls, there is always a splatter or mist of paint on the woodwork and carpet. I have been called on the fact that occasionally I am "wearing" more paint than I have applied on anything. Yup, that's "monkey painting".
Today, I'm trying to paint my fingernails and toenails. Ugh.
My eyesight is not up to snuff, so I have to be in very bright light (like outside) to even see what I'm working on. As for my toenails, oy vey! They are far enough away from my eyeballs, that I pretty much have to estimate where the polish is going. And, yes, my biggest toe's nails keep getting bumped, and therefore, they die, and then they turn black (due to past chemo treatments). I definitely need to keep them covered. So. . . I "monkey paint". Sigh.
It's been an interesting summer, so far. Last week, Jenna, Alec, friend Annie, and I went to a Kernels baseball game. Alec LOVED it and really got involved in actually watching the game. We sat with Aunt Pat, cousin Lisa and her beautiful daughter, Kaitlin. The Kernels won and we had a blast!
BFSISPIC (best friend, sister-in-law, partner in crime) Nina and I are anxiously awaiting our little get-away vay cay later this month. Boy, are we ready for it! Four glorious, care-free days where we can do anything and go anywhere we want. Remember on our little trip last year, when I reported that I had developed "skankles" (skinny ankles) from walking so much? I'm ready to do it all over again. Small price to pay for having so much fun.
Today would have been Dad's 90th birthday. I am sure that he is grateful to be where he is now, celebrating with Mother, his parents, and brothers and sister. He missed them so when he was still here.
Hope all of you are surviving the Presidential campaigns. Holy moley! Have I mentioned that Hubby and I are a "mixed" marriage? In all reality, we are both Independents because we vote for the person, but we are registered in opposite parties. It's so much FUN to get campaigning calls and mail-outs from BOTH parties. I won't even bother mentioning which party I belong to, but let's just say that I am NOT for the really stupid candidate. Still got ya guessing? Oh, well.
NOVEMBER CAN NOT COME SOON ENOUGH when it comes to this election!!!!!!!!!
GOD BLESS US ALL (AND HEAVEN HELP THE POLITICIANS)
