It was a very long night...

in the emergency room with our precious Eula Mae. I had a great post in mind but seriously cannot think too clearly this mornin'. So I am cheatin' a little and going to do a fun Meme I read over on my friend Flea's blog a few days ago.

A) Four places I go over and over:
  • over the brink and then to my secret, quiet place
  • the Dollar Tree (my fave, next to Target)
  • the library to pay my weekly fine
  • QT - it's the best gas station/convenience store on the the Planet. I am not kiddin'. It is. If you're from Oklahoma or surrounding states, you'll agree.
(B) Four people who e-mail me regularly:
  • my other spouse, Saucy Sashi
  • my dad (we're plannin' a family rendezvous)
  • my Lover-Boy (a.k.a. Big Shooter)
  • and FIL (my sweet, sweet Father-In-Law whom I get to see next week!!)

(C) Four of my favorite places to eat:
  • My Granny Grunt's kitchen. She is the best cook on the Planet. You know, the kind that can look in the pantry, glance in the fridge at the meager choices and then whip up a scrumptious feast? She's that kind of granny. I get to see her next week too.
  • Taqueria Jerez' - my absolute fave little dive. Mr. Juarez is living the American Dream. He is such a fabulous example of what can happen with a little dream, a whole lot of work and tons of determination. He moved here (legally, I may add), worked his tail off to be able to bring his wife and three kids here as well(legally, I may add). He has extremely high standards and expectations of his family because of it. They are all well aware of his sacrifices and honor their father and husband with their hard work as well. His children are going to be famous one day. I've already latched on to their coat tails.
  • Greek Isle - In Chicago. It's been a realllly long time. But, I so fondly remember the taramasalata, and octopus. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
  • My kitchen. (Shush Dad.) I love to eat at my own table with my own little fam. I love that special time...and they really believe I am a great cook.
(D) Four places you'd rather be:
  • In Margarita Ville
  • The mountains of Idaho
  • In bed with a good book...and Big Shooter
  • Staying at a very posh, swanky hotel with out-of-this-world room service
(E) Four TV shows I could watch over and over:
  • 24 (Big Shooter and I are literally counting down the weeks to be reunited with Jack. Sigh.)
  • Dexter (Oh. My. Word. Fuh-reeky. Addicting. Sicko. Love it.)
  • Any Law & Order or CSI
  • Really that's about it. I don't watch a lot of tv. Too busy readin' blogs and thinkin' up posts.
(F) Four people I think will respond:
I know you precious people will be emailing or commenting wondering about sweet Eula Mae so I can tell you this much already - She has a hair line fracture in her foot and riding in my "purty red car" makes drivin' home at 4am in the freezin' Oklahoma breeze "a-okay Missy". I knew we'd aptly named that car when we purchased it -The Grandma Car! (It's an old red caddy.)
We will be leavin' this Saturday for a couple weeks. If you think of her, please say a prayer for our sweet girl. She'll have other very loving neighbors, her regular care giver and home health care nurses checkin' in on her...but, she'll be missing her girlfriend - Girl Child. And Girl Child will be worryin' about her the whole time...
Love Note to my Big Shooter: My thoughts are filled with you every time I am with Eula Mae. I think of how well you take care of me. I think about growing old with you. I think about two gnarled hands clasped together long into the future. Sigh... But before you get all googley-eyed and tender hearted I also think of oatmeal and Depends...

I totally agree about the QT. I love their fountain. The option to put good ice and vanilla in my Diet Pepsi thrills me.

I hope poor Eula Mae feels better soon!

I'm glad to hear that it's Eula Mae's foot and not something worse. And thanks for playing. :)

I came over here to let you know that you have been tagged, and lo and behold, you tagged me too! I will answer your tag tomorrow!

Dawn said...

Sorry to hear about your little one. I hope she mends quickly.

I'm glad I'm not the only one to pay fines at the library.every.time.

They are putting a new QT in right around the corner from us. And, we have always LOVED QT until recently when they started not using 100% gasoline. Ugh! Now my husband makes me get gas at the Shell station. Gaw! I still love it for everything else though.

Have fun on your trip. :)

Hope you've gotten some rest after such a rough night. I'm glad Eula Mae will heal and it's not something worse...although I'm sure it was BAD ENOUGH! My prayers are with you both.

you know the Greek Isle? WOW. The lemon rice soup? The Lamb Chops? Oh my goodness...STILL my favorite. We eat there with the whole giant family and take up the whole back room every time we visit Chicago!!!!

"oatmeal and depends"
You're really funny.
I just recently discovered your site and have enjoyed reading the past posts.

I will try to get to this meme. I am a bit behind with my trip. I will pray for Eula Mae.
