Friday's Random Thoughts....or something like that

Happy Friday!  I hope you had a faboo week and have something fun planned for the weekend!  I have been so busy this week with appointments for eyes and hair and toesies not to mention a few committee meetings, errands, laundry and ribbon.  I have barely had time to write this post and it's not my best work but it's up and in English!

Tonight I am attending the volunteer dinner put on by town council.  I have never been before so I hope it is nice.  Hermes Scarf Friend is my date as she was invited too so I am looking forward to lots of chitchat!

Speaking of HSF - she got some upsetting news from the neurologist last week.  After all this time without any seizures she expected an 'all clear' and to be told she can drive again.  Nope.  He told her she wont be driving for at least a year, maybe two!  She told me she started crying and he asked her what's wrong. Ummm ok.  So she is still trying to survive without a car and getting rides from everyone.  What a pain for her!  She also has lots of test coming up as well as concerns from her MRI...hopefully it's all benign problems and can be easily fixed!

The Civic Awards committee met last night to go through all of the nominations and choose the winners.  We managed to get through it with minimal arguing, no one fell out, no one is angry and we are still a committee (unlike last year's fiasco!).  I am very excited about a couple of the winners as they are friends of mine and I know the deserve the recognition.  We use a scoring chart to make sure we stay objective so even tho I know them, I was able to remove my feeling from the judging.

I got my hair cut yesterday...short.  Well not a buzz cut or anything but much shorter than it was.  I just felt like a shorter, easier cut for the summer.  Longish hair is nice but oh my goodness what a lot of work it can be!

The Little Prince is all better now and back to his usual cheeky self.  Last night he saw a scratch on my hand and was very concerned.  He asked me what happened and after I told him said, "Poor mommy.  You should go to the hospital to find out what's wrong!"  LOL  After reading about the time Curious George ate the puzzle piece and had to go to the hospital he has been looking for any reason to go too!  Silly thing!  My life tends to revolve around Curious George's adventures...remember the horse & carriage ride?  George.  Fire Hall visit?  George.  I draw the line at going in a hot air balloon just because a curious little monkey did it.

My birthday is on Sunday and everything is ready and in place!  Lunch reservation has been made, shopping list is ready, the cake is in the works...unfortunately the bakery in Toronto is not open on Sundays so they are seeing if one of the other businesses will keep the cake for me so I can pick it up the on day I am in the city.  Complicated, I know...but it's the only bakery in the city that I could find that makes this one specific type of cake.  Photos coming next week!

I'm sitting here trying to come up with something funny...I'm usually easily amused by the world but I don't think I've had time for a sense of humour this week!  Anyhoo have a great weekend and enjoy all this summer-like weather!  I will be heading to the tanning salon for a little jump start on my tan!

If you can, please leave your comment here instead of on Twitter. Thanks!

Have a fabulous day!

You have been busy! I feel a bit lazy since we're on vacation but I think it's supposed to be that way. Things will be crazy again when I get home so I am enjoying it. :)

I'm sorry about your friend. I have a friend who had a seizure & I think it was over a year until she could drive, too. It was hard for her, plus she had to get her kids to school (no buses here).

Have a happy, happy birthday!!!!

Have so much fun on Sunday and happy, happy, healthy birthday! My son announced to the whole lax field yesterday that Daddy drinks beer every day--that made me laugh!

Happy Birthday Princess!
Sounds like you are busy and organized for the weekend. The cake must be very special if only one bakery can bake it...yum!

I cannot imagine how difficult it would be to have a diagnosis like HSF and be unable to drive...I'd cry too.
Hope that her prognosis will improve.

You are a good friend and support for her.

The idea of your life and that wee monkey Curious George in one sentence made me laugh...

Best wishes for a fab weekend!

Your story about your HSF resonated with me as a person who works in this field. It is disappointing to hear that there are still clueless practitioners out there like this doc, although not I have to say it is not surprising in the least. To deliver disappointing news and then respond to a patient's disappointment with "what's wrong" is about as inappropriate as it gets.

So sorry to hear Hermes Scarf friends news. It's so hard not to be able to drive. I feel for her.
