Im not certain what it is. I was doing so well there for awhile too....even in the Padded Room entries. All of a sudden it's like I just cant bring myself to put anything down in font. It's not as though there isnt anything to talk about... Im thinking it may be that medicine Ive been on lately. I took the last dose last night so it should all be over soon. All I know is I feel like curling up and doing absolutely nothing...well I take that back, I feel like crying...for no real reason.
Daddy sent me an external harddrive that he bought for himself and asked that I do a few projects for him and slide them onto the drive before sending it back. The bugger is 250GB...TWICE the size of BOTH my C and E drives put together. Im working at getting hubby to buy one of these buggers for my music and art stuff. This way I can work on anything I want at any location. Unfortunately, with as small as my drives are (my computer's going through an inferiority complex and the external aint even out of the box yet) it's going to be slow going. While I was working on his projects (ahhh gotta love multitaskin) , however, I managed to clean up most of my E drive and found a good 8 GB of space that had been junked up with duplicate music files and music I dont play that often. I moved the stuff I dont use for my streams to my C drive and will more than likely get rid of them entirely (except the seasonal music and the instrumentals). As I was cleaning I found several other artists that my SCSis would like so I think I'll surprise her with another cd. Her hubby's birthday is this Saturday and he'll like this music too. Once I get it all said and done and decide what Im keeping and what's going to get pitched I'll be using my file program to list all the music and if the file isnt too big (yeah right) I think I'll print a hard copy for reference.
I got an email from my mommy the other day. She was telling me that she'd gone to the doctor's for an abdominal scan. I gather a month back or so she'd been telling me about some symptoms she'd been having and I'd recommended going to the dr and asking if it isnt gall stones. Sure enough the CT scan came back and she has a hum dinger in there. The largest stone measured 2.39 CM and there were several smaller stones around it. DAMN I didnt know those could get so damn big!! She's due to go to a surgeon for consult on Sept 19th. I told her the surgeon's gonna say the gall bladder will need to come out. Can you imagine something that size breaking loose and getting wedged in the tube right outside the pancreas? Ugh. We've been writing back n forth for a couple days now with her asking questions and me giving her a heads up on what to expect. Dad's freaked because "any surgery can be potentially bad". Unfortunately this is going to be a necessary one to keep her well. I only hope they do the "3 lil hole" operation and dont have to do it the old fashioned way (incision from sterum to belly button). I didnt mention that to her as I didnt want to worry her anymore than she is as she's as nervous as I am around doctors. I'll keep ya'll updated on that.
With any luck hubby will be getting his sinus surgery on the 12th of this month. Those stinking kidneystones (which I dont believe he's passed quite yet...at least he aint mentioned it ) just threw us for a damn loop. Because of the timing he had to push his surgery on his sinuses back and I have a hunch we're going to run into some conflicting scheduling. I know that I have an appointment at the obgyn on the 13th and he might not be able to drive so I'll need to reschedule that but I wont call them for a couple days yet....no sense calling them twice over the same thing ya know. Maybe better yet I'd better call them right after I write this entry because I know it wont be this month we can do anything anyhow. Oh hell, wait a minute...it's Labor Day and they wont be open. I guess I'll call tomorrow.
I got up today a trifle earlier than usual. After looking at the clock, I attempted to roll over and catch another hour or two worth of ZZZZs. I dont know what it was but came wide awake and sat right up. Evidentally something was wrong... I got up and did my usual wake up procedure (medicines, let the dog out, make a quick trip to the potty while dog is out, etc etc) and nothing here seemed amiss. I let the pooch in and turned on my 'puter and there it was....a note in my email from hubby entitled "Truck died". Good God. A little background on the truck...it's a 1988 Ford Lariet and up to this year had rarely given us a speck of trouble. It's been to and from Tennessee countless numbers of time and helped us in 2 moves. In essence, it's old and tired. It's gotten so we'll get one thing fixed and shortly after something else will go kablooie. Thankfully, it got him all the way to work and only gave out when he got to the gate. He was able to coast it into a parking space. Hubby says that the water was all dried out (he just filled it a couple days ago mind you) and that there was oil everywhere. Right now we're praying that it's not going to be an arm and leg fix. We're hoping his friend (the dude who works the night shift on the same days that hubby works) can help fix it. If not we'll need to tow it to Brown's garage, and get an estimate. I have a hunch it's gonna get towed there and then towed back home. Personally with the money we're starting to chunk into it on a regular basis we may as well put the funding into a mileage friendly rental car. Especially since some parts on that bugger cant be found easily anymore and will need to be custom made.
Ok, so maybe it aint the medicine....
I am, however, excited about the new Bo Bice album due out next month (as if the banner and the countdown on the home page wasnt clue enough). It looks to be quite exciting if the rumors are to be held true. I got a bulletin in MySpace today suggesting a few of the songs that may be on the album based upon the songs he's been doing in his shows. They even were kind enough to to put some videos in their bulletin. The videos arent the best quality but what can you expect from low budget cameras at a live show? I've reposted it at the bottom of this entry (and if anyone's looking for lainie in the next few days, I suspect she's still watching the videos below...LOL) Im thinking of posting a different Bo video every week until the release date. Im thinking on the Home Page.
Oh and while I was scouting for tunes... I noticed that Bruce Hornsby has a new cd out called Camp Meeting. I checked it out in Amazon and it's a nice jazz album. Those that like jazz may like that and while you're at it check out the George Benson & Al Jarreau Givin It Up album. I bought that puppy on a whim and am so glad I did. They've got some great stuff on it. I'll be playing some on this coming Saturday's stream. I'm thinking of doing something different (for me it's different) and playing all jazz and big band stuff. If anyone has any ideas for that type of stream drop me a note.
The Bulletin I was discussing:

Though official word has yet to be released, it is expected that Bo's new cd due for release on October 23 will include these new songs he performed at his recent gigs, giving a fresh vibe to the music we call southern rock.
See The Light
This one's really hot... Aaawww!!
