Seriously, I need that... and a ramp on the front porch... maybe even a bigger porch. And while we're at it, why don't we have a thingamabob on the back of my van so I can actually use the electric scooter I have? So long as we're dreaming... bigger master closet, bathroom (I want a tub I can actually fit my entire body into), a linen closet, a front bathroom that actually has green board instead of whatever it is that is messed up from water (and has mold... ick!)... and... and... and... oh yeah, and the gutters too. Trust me, if I could work, I would work!! Geez Louise!! In other news, one of my best friends just lost her mother and I need to scrape up enough spoons to make at least the visitation. She'll understand if I don't, she has spoon problems herself, but damn, I am SO tired of not having enough spoons to do the things I need to do, much less the things I want to do.

In other words, it's my daughter's 18th birthday. She's stunning but I wasn't able to give her anything close to the type of birthday I would have liked. I couldn't do a birthday lunch (other than That Scottish Restaurant) because... gee... no money. Her gifts consisted of the same types of things she's gotten every year (with the exception of the plethora of kickin' footies) because... gee... no money. And, of course, no energy. Add in a dash or two of both of us having Other Issues. Not so much with each other except where they come merely because they exist. I'd go on, but there is this cat sitting at my side going, "Mom. You had three days, technically four since you had a doctor's appointment on Monday, where you Did Things. You Need To Rest and Recover Now. Pet me. Don't try to tell me that you haven't needed all that extra napping I've been making you do. Pet me. That's right. Put down the computer and back away. But not before you hand me some more treats. Oh, and pet me."
(If I had the money, I'd buy one of my own t-shirts!)

I've been sick... I'm going to have to go to a doc in the box. I hate this. I'm wearing a pain patch which is working well... except for the fact that it fripping itches. I need a housekeeper and a driver and I can't afford either. I seriously need to win the lottery because SSA seems like a dream that will never come. gah.
