insomnia....in St. Louis

well......had fun at the "book" thing last night......monica, julia and i rocked at the trivia contest!!!!!!    damn skippy!!!!!!   we split the grand prize.....i scored some fancy pants felt die cuts and some rub-ons letters........monica took the ki album kit, punch and some other stuff....julia took another album, punch and some other scrap crap!!!!!!

tried to sleep......tossed and turned.....feels like i only slept a few minutes........at one point, rex rolled over and put his leg onto me.......OUCH>>>>>>>  i woke him up and told him that he had some kind on scab or something on his leg that stuck me@@!!!!!!!  NOTHING WORSE THAN HAVING A HORNED BEAST WAKE YOU FROM A FITFUL SLEEP.......  fast forward 4 hours and little sleep later...................rex rolls outta bed to get the puppies out for their am potty......since i was awake i said something to him like "lets check out that injury on your leg!!!".....his response......i DON'T have any injury.......!!!!!!!!    well....nothing on his knee anyway!!!!   i was determined to find that "thing" that stuck me......    just below his knee was this small protruding barb!!!!! well.......a scab anyway!!!!!!    he looked and said...."guess i got a scrape at work!".......   fast forward another 10 minutes.......he comes back upstairs....(with puppies pulling up the rear)....and announces "i think i have something in my leg!!"...  so off to the tool section of the bathroom and out comes the pick-ups (medical lingo for tweezers!) and a few seconds later out comes a shard of metal almost 1/2" long!  damn skippy.......i couldn't believe it........neither could he!!!!   he didn't feel it go in.........the area around it was reddened so obviously it had been there for some time (not just a few hours) however........now the offensive item was gone.....i was awake.......so on with the day!!!    have a headache from little sleep....

also.......got a little valentine's surprise..............rex ordered a wide format printer for me (((((i am paying for it with my bonus check) and it arrived yesterday!!!!!    can't wait to break that bad boy out and give it a spin!!!

well....guess i better move it along.......there is cardboard to rip into......breakfast to eat......stuff to be done!!!!!


i love my life!!!!!   (horned beast and all!!!)
