Good Morning All,

It has been a stressful last couple of weeks that I think is finally settling out.  Thank goodness!  Last week, all of a sudden it hit me, "My God, I'm stressed."  I think mainly because tension levels were high.

This week, it seems to be the week of sickness.  Hubby is sick, a friend is sick, I had a stomach virus earlier in the week which now is turning into sick.  I wound up sleeping much of last night on the couch because my husband was so restless.  I actually woke up alert and feeling good.  After he left for work, I got back on the couch and put the heating pad on my neck.  When I woke back up, then I felt like do-do.  That is the one thing I like about summer break - my morning nap.  I get up at 4am to get hubby off to work for 5:30.  I usually crash back out for 30-45 minutes then get rolling myself.  I hate not having that when school is in session.  Oh, well.

The kids have been gone off and on a lot this summer.  For a week we had no kids at all - it was heaven.  And you know what, amazingly, the house was clean.  All these years, I have been blaming the majority of the mess on my husband.  And lo, it really wasn't him.

A couple of friends that moved out of state came to visit - they were strange visits.  I've started back in bellydancing and I am really hoping to stick with it this time.  My van has been broken so I've been borrowing a car from my mother and my 16 year old son is taking drivers ed.  The highlight of the month will be the HUGE Rocky Horror party on the 21st.  Actually, that will be one of two highlights.  The other occurred on Wednesday when I had the honor to be at a very special party for some friends.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Stolen from other folks

I don't usually like get to know you memes, but this one was interesting.  The "one word" meme is interesting too.  I'll have to look for that one and post it.

1. What was one book that you read over and over again as a kid and what do you love about it? 

Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein.  I loved the whole idea of mind over body, spirit, matter... I loved the interaction be Juble and his staff.  I still yell "FRONT" when I need one of my kids to do something.  I love the whole spiritual aspect of the book.  I just loved the book.  My next most read book was Dune. 

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

2. What was one book or movie that truly scared the crap out of you? 

The Shining by Steven King.  I remember that I read it in high school.  I was up late one night reading it.  I think I was alone.  There was a storm starting and the bushes were stratching the window.  That combined with the book scared the shit out of me.

3. Do you FONDUE? 

In theory.  I like the idea, but never have.  There is a fondue restaurant in town called The Melting Pot that I really want to go to.

4. If you woke up tomorrow and suddenly had to spend the rest of your life as a guy which would you prefer to be: straight, gay, or a drag queen? 

It is a toss up between gay or drag queen and I would certainly live in San Fransisco.

5. If you were ever to be classified as a "triple-threat" of talent, what would your 3 talents of choice be? 

Does this include vast cosmic powers?  I would love to be able to bend and shape reality to my will (Amber Coronicles), a world renound hi-tech thief that no body has ever seen, the grace and charism to turn head and cause people to loose their breath when I walked into a room.

I know all of that probably sound silly, hey its just a game.
