Merry Christmas-in-July, everyone!

We're getting closer to opening night at the theater this weekend. Elizabeth is so tired from all the practice, I hope she gets a change to actually enjoy the play!

Not only is today Christmas in July, it's the first anniversary of my, ahem, myocardial infarction. Someone showed me the newspaper article from last year: "BELLVILLE MAYOR SUFFERS HEART ATTACK". I, however, prefer to believe that I survived a heart attack. It tried to take me out, but I defeated it...with a little help from my cardiologist, that is.

People still offer to do strenuous things for me, afraid I'll have more trouble. It's nice of them, but I don't intend to be afraid. If the doc says to be careful, then I will. But he says I'm good to go as long as I exercise and watch what I eat, so I've decided that the heart attack is something that happened to me in the past, like a broken arm, and I got over it.

[Forest Gump] And that's all I have to say about that.[/Forest Gump]

In other news, my grass has gotten out of control again! It rains every afternoon now, just before I get off work. LOL I might have to use some vacation time to cut the grass. That's crazy!

I hope y'all have a great day!

The restaurant was very posh and fancy, and I was trying to find ways to tell Made I couldn't afford to eat there, but he was insistent we stay. Not sure why I dreamed that...maybe because we were talking about eating yesterday!
It was a very funny dream. I guess Made is Mr. Uppity Fancy Pants.


Believe me, I've been to those type of restaurants and I would take McDonald's over them any day!!!! LOL!!!!!

Heck most of the time I ended up wasting the food because they didn't have anything I would eat!!!

All I can remember is that I was standing there (somewheres) talking with several people; Bradmac, Merry and Snowflake and it was warm outside, we were by a pool...weird...

How warm? I was probably hiding inside in front of the A/C!!!

You are a survivor, friend!! Glad you're doing so well, taking your doctors advice & following it so steadfastly.

Hope Elizabeth has a wonderful premiere weekend!! I bet you're so excited to see her in action =]

Btw, do you plan to see The Conjuring?

Don't worry about it ... it's an automatic thing done by the digital platform, not something Jeff squashed personally. Your using the word once was fine. I tried to respond by saying Yes, definitely the meds were making you hungry, because I had [forbidden medicine name] when I was on chemo in the 1980s and it made me ravenous. That's when I stopped being skinny. But I used the "s" word, and it redirected me and wouldn't post. Just did it again---wouldn't let me mention the med by name.

I'm glad to hear the kittens came back, especially since they went missing near a pond.
