It was a simply marvelous weekend, hot, sunny, muggy and full of pool time. Razzie was a complete delight the entire weekend, and he even finally managed to get into the pool all by himself. Figures that now that he has it figured out, he probably won't be back in it until next year. 

He must have taken lessons from Seven on Sunday afternoon. Seven and her people came over to play, and she was in and out of that pool at least 15 times.

Good times were had by all. I'm assuming it may have been the last pool fun for the rest of the year, but I'm hoping I might get at least another weekend or two. 

On Thursday I'm off to Green Bay for some surgery. Nothing major, and I'll be home the same day. Then I'll get a few weeks off to just lay around. 

Right now the worst part of waiting to just be done with it is the no aspirin for a week prior rule. My head has seriously been on the verge of exploding for the past few days, and I would kill to be able to take some Excedrin Migraine, a/k/a The Best Drug Ever Made. By last night it hurt so bad I went to bed at 11:15. I had already been  kind of dozing off and on in the recliner for an hour before that, and I decided to just give in and go to bed. I know it's a bad headache when it keeps me awake. My efforts to try and get a good night's sleep were an epic fail. That booming in my brain kept me awake for over two hours and then woke me up a few more times just to piss me off. I woke up with only a slightly lesser version of the headache, and as the day wears on, it's just getting worse again.

The nail group is doing teal this week, so on Sunday night I decided on this.
Sally Hansen Blue Me Away, Mundo de Unas Sky Blue, Dana8  stamp
For some reason, this leans much more teal in real life. It looked very teal on my swatches compared to my other blues, too. This is Sally Hansen Blue Me Away stamped with Mundo de Unas Sky Blue and the Dana8 stamping plate.

It's cute-ish. I like it. I'm still wearing it, but that's only because I felt too crappy last night to take it off. I'm hoping tonight I feel good enough to do something else.

I'm also wondering what to do about my nails for surgery. The doctor's office didn't mention not wearing nail polish, and when the surgical nurse called yesterday, she went through everything and didn't mention it either. I'm leaning towards leaving them painted and just making sure I have naked toes.

Shoot. I suppose I'll have to call them tomorrow and find out for sure. If I have to take them completely off, I am not going to be happy.


  1. Pretty Mani!!! Ugh on the headache!!! Yuck... good luck on the surgery... I think my hospital would make me completely take them off! Ugh!
