It was cold this morning, and I was a bit crabby. Not bone-shivering body achingly cold, just chilly. We’ve had the heat on for a while here in the Midwest, and when I got home from dropping Lily off at preschool and looked at the thermostat, it read only 62 degrees. For some reason the furnace wasn’t kicking on, and it had been working just fine overnight. So I called the fix-it man, and he came right over. There was just some gunk on a connection that he cleaned up, so THAT’s taken care of.
I know, I lead an exciting life. You just couldn’t wait for this afternoon edition of my RTT’s because they are always just so riveting.
I mopped the kitchen floor yesterday. And just now, I took Emmy out of her booster seat and a cascade of noodles, Parmesan cheese and brownie bits showered down onto the floor. Yes, that made me crabby, too. Especially when she decided to stomp on the noodles just to make sure they are extra hard to clean up. I’m just one big ol’ crab cake today.
The girls have been watching Clifford on PBS lately, and for some reason I started wondering how Clifford got his name. Then I wondered who else had the name Clifford, or Cliff, and the only person I could think of was Bill Cosby’s character on the Cosby show.
Last night while I was watching TV with Ed, my ear lobe started to hurt. Way back in college, I had a second hole pierced into my left ear, but I haven’t worn an earring in that hole for years. Then last night it looked like it was infected. There was pus and everything! Which, of course, brought to mind the Cosby Show episode where Theo pierced his ear and he tried to hide it from his parents. Not only that, but then it gets infected. Kind of like my ear. Just another reason to be crabby.
