Birthday, weekend, mean people.

I was just at Meijer, waiting at the deli for gourmet chicken salad.

Loud speaker: Now serving customer number....6....3...

Man: That's me. I need a pound of (blahblahblah)

Deli girl: Ok. (grabs the meat and heads over to the meat slicer.)

Man: (Says something....I'm not really paying attention at this point)

Man: Hey, did you hear me? Did you HEAR ME?

Deli girl: Yes, I heard you.

Man: Well then ACKNOWLEDGE!

Man turns to me, standing there picking my jaw up off the floor.

Man: I served in the Marine corps for 20 years! When I tell you to do something, I expect it to be DONE.

I usually don't shop on the weekends, because I swear that's when people are the meanest. People mope around with angry faces, rolling their eyes at you just because you need to pass them in the aisle. Sighing heavily when you spend a second too long picking out which mayonnaise to buy. Driving across parking lots as if there are no road markings. But, it's Craig's birthday, and we needed a cake. And gourmet chicken salad.

It's been so long....

Ok, so back to blogging.

Well, a lot has happened in buttland since my last post. I switched doctors, surgeons, hospitals....a complete medical makeover. So glad I did. I have a wonderful surgeon who is doing his best to try to get rid of this thing. I've had 2 more surgeries since the last post. I'm still recovering. Blah blah blah, I won't get into details.

I don't have much to say. It's hard to just jump back into blogging. So, I'll just tell you what I did today. I woke up, found myself in a lot of pain, cried, stopped crying, showered, sat out on the deck for awhile, got a sun burn, ordered pizza for the kids, and organized my hard drive.

The end. I promise to be more interesting.
