Someday’s are like being on friggin’ (59) post Jeopardy..

Credit for the title goes to my DW. She walked out of the bathroom this morning after taking her shower and said that she had the title for tonight’s blog. Usually the blog title and contents are trapped in my head until the time comes for them to spill out on these electronic pages. And why, do most of my blog’s include a mention about bathrooms or food?  Hmmm. Freud (or some psychiatrist) would enjoy that discussion. Anyway, here’s the result of the discussion with my DW this morning. Picture in your mind’s eye, you are on Jeopardy, the other two contestants are on either side of you. Alex Trebek tell you to pick a category. So you say, “Give me things that could never happen in a week of my life, Alex, for 1000”. And the question is “What is a hurricane, an earthquake, two eye surgery’s in one week, three children going off to college, getting hit by two lacrosse balls in one night?” Buzz, you know the answer, What is S__T you just can’t make up?  Winner, winner, chicken dinner. We have a winner.

Ok, so another crazy opening for my blog. I hope you slogged through it. The second surgery went very well today. The doctor was very pleased with the operation and the quick recovery that DS2 is making on the right eye that was done on Tuesday evening. The hospital staff was great, again. Our gratitude goes out to all the people that we came in contact with over the last four days. We have a post operative check up tomorrow morning at 7:30 am.  Right now DS2 is sleeping in the Lazy Boy recliner. I am typing and working the emails while keeping on eye on him.  His blood pressure was up today. The hospital staff made no mention of this Tuesday night. We will wait a few weeks for all this hub bub to go away and then my DW will check his pressure. He is a big boy, so maybe this might be a wake up call about eating better, or maybe the stress of the week has him as well. It surely has me on the ropes.

DS3 worked his last day at the bark and biscuit today. He spent part of the day making sand bags that will be used to try to keep flooding out of the biscuit during the hurricane this weekend. He and I head to Scranton early Saturday to get him moved in and pick up DS2’s books from school. That way we can help him next week keep current with his studies.  DS1 has secured an internship working for the university this fall. This should fulfil a graduation requirement and give him some spending money.

That is it for the night. I’m done, stick a fork in me, done. But first a picture. Here is DS2 pre operation today. My DW was giving me the business about taking his picture until she saw other “normal” people doing the same thing.  🙂 And I almost forgot, there is video! Click here to see it.
