I have some appointments this morning.
Must leave this minute.
I'll be back.
Why are all my thoughts movie quotes?
So I just returned from the hospital and Dr. office where I was poked and prodded within an inch of my life.
At one point I said to the Doc. "It's like a treasure hunt!"
I also said, "bi-bop-sy" to amuse myself...
Best part was....there was a tv in the waiting room, which I was in for an hour. (the room, not the tv)
Regis and Kelly was on. I was content.
Did I ever tell you the story of why I love Regis Philbin so much?
I am going to make myself cry...
One month after Emma was born (20 years ago) I had a ruptured appendix. My doc was a moron and didn't figure it out for three days. I almost died. I laid in the hospital, all alone, without my baby, pumping milk and jacked up on morphine for a week.
It was a nightmare.
When the appendix was finally taken out, by a different doctor, let's call him Dr. Welby, it was black. My appendix.
It had been rotting away in there for who knows how long.
Anyway. I was a sick girl.
And I laid in my hospital room feeling sorry for myself and loney and sick.
And I watched Regis and Kathie Lee. And Regis made me laugh.
I laughed at him even with the gaping unsewn-up hole in my side.
And I love him for that.
He was with me thru my bowel obstruction a year later and he was with me this morning.
And I laughed in front of other gown wearing women.
They didn't look up from their magazines, that don't know our history. Reg and me.
He is my make-believe, television 'constant'.
And here is the after picture, I promised earlier today.
Katie went to the apple orchard with Amy J in Wi and Carrie on Saturday.
With the apples Katie picked, I made a cobbler of sorts.
I don't make pies. I'm not a huge fan of crust.
But the yummy butter and brown sugary topping, I'm all over that.
Here's what I did.
Sliced about 7 apples.
Put them in a pie plate.
Isn't it pretty?
3/4 cup flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
1 stick butter, softened
Cut in the butter.
Sprinkle on apples.
Bake at 350 for @ 30 min.
Wait until it cools to eat it so you don't burn your tongue.
I think I will have some of that right now.
Encourage one another,
p.s. no worries about all of my tests...they are just a bunch of minor problems...nothing for you to worry your pretty little heads about.
