A day in the life - Grandy Style

Good ol' Mrs. G at Derfwad Manor has asked us to participate in a challenge. Someone asked her for a pictoral "day in the life of Mrs. G" and she has asked her readers to play along.

Well this "Mrs. G" thought you all wouldn't be overly stimulated if I showed you pics of what Grandy does all day. Really, her day is much more exciting when she's working. There would be a gazillion pics of all sorts of different activities showing why Grandy is so crazy at the end of a week.

But alas...that craziness is slowed down as I spend so much of my time on this:

Liquid Codeine... aka Liquid Crack... aka the reason I can go on living for the time being. See that plant in the background? I'm trying to keep it alive. But I'm not very good at this stuff. In fact... I suck.

It causes me to do so much of this:



But I do try to keep my mind engaged by challenging it with:

I'm rockin' the puzzle world, and my sisters and friends text me throughout the day to see how I'm doing. Gotta love unlimited texting... and then I don't have to talk to everyone.



And of course I can waste countless hours with this:

My Tivo is a wonderful thing. Look at the CSI's and Without a Trace episodes just sitting there... waiting for me... so I can fast forward through the commercials.


My afternoons are spent policing spending quality time with:

I tell ya, this kid cannot WAIT until I get my happy a$$ back to work because he's suffocating with all the smothering love he's feeling. Did you do your homework? How was school? What did you have for lunch? Who did you hang out with? Who keeps texting you? Little does he realize I ask these questions all the time, just not all in the same breath.



By the end of the day I find myself tired again. From what, I'm not exactly sure. But you can bet I am spending my evening like this:



Me...on my recliner...with my laptop... with a haze over me. Good grief! Is it possible to LOOK medicated? Sure it is. I'm doing it right here.


So this is a day in my life right now.


Bored yet?


Hey...WAKE UP!! You've been sipping my meds while I wasn't looking, huh?

Wait, I left a post at Mental Pause that I wanted to join her at 5 o'clock wine-time. But codeine time has got her beat. May I?

Well, now I am just jealous that I didn't have codeine on my Monday...

Your day in the life rocks! I was a total schlep and didn't get mine up till midnight on Monday...maybe I did have codeine and I just didn't know it??? Hmmm.....

Grandy said...

You look under-medicated. Have some more happy juice!
