My thump is all the rain we've been having for the past two days and more to come.

    My cat (the evil Achmed that I talk about from time to time) woke me up this morning when she ran across my face. I'm not quite sure why she did it, I think maybe another cat was chasing her. Either that or she decided to rip my nose off. Luckily, she missed my eye. 
    Very glad she missed your eye!

    It's great no one has had many thumps worth posting lately. 
    Unfortunately I am having a thump kind of day.  I have developed some kind of
    a rash and woke me on several occasions this morning.  Finally at 4:50a.m. I decided
    to just stay awake.  The rash has started in the area of the radiation treatments,
    but during the day today has moved to other areas of my chest.  I called the
    oncologist/radiologist.  Not sure if they'll know what it is, but seemed the right place
    to start.  I did pick up some Benadryl gel and that has helped give some relief.

    Thank you, Cobbie.  It was irritating for a few days, weeks actually, and now it's getting unbearable.
    It's not really painful, just itchy, and red and blistery.   Yuck.

    I don't know if it will make a difference with your rash, but I was reminded very recently that putting refrigerated Benadryl gel on the blistery rash from scorpion plant helps more than room temperature Benadryl gel.

    Thank you.  The Benadryl is really helping a lot.  I've only had to apply it twice today, as compared to 5 to 6 times the last couple of days.

    Glad it is helping. I also found that refrigerated aloe vera gel helps more on sunburns. ;)

    Realized today that I forgot about the Austin Meet and did not even think about watching for date updates because I have been seriously busy... The date was set while I was away and I will be at my DD's play... It is her first "real" (outside of church) play! Of course I will enjoy the play but I really wanted to go to another meet... DD & I both enjoyed the last one. :)

    yesterday was my day of thumps. 

    First, I tripped while stepping over the gate, crashing into a plastic pot that DH thoughtfully left in the middle of the floor and hurt my ankle (not enough to go to the drs, but enough to ache the rest of the day and night)

    Next the Boss woke up cranky and screaming crying.  This did not abate when I changed her diaper and found the mother of all diaper rashes.

    Then, when DH came home (knowing I had had a bad day) he kept following me around asking me if I were mad and if it were something he had done

    and finally, I made myself some ramen noodles only to find out the sauce packet was stale (or something, it tasted aweful)

    Hopefully you got all of the bad stuff out and today will be a "bump" day.

    Hang in there, Dona, and be careful.  Things will get better, I know.

    My thump for the day was at Wal-Mart.  My DH was looking at a lawn tractor and he asked the man who was helping him how to move the seat back.  Being ever helpful and already knowing that there is a twisty knob under the seat on the cheaper models, I watched as the man sat on the seat and adjusted everything from the gears to the blade height with no results before I offered my help.  He raised up the seat and looked at the knob in question and said "Nope!  That just connects the seat to the mower, ma'am!"  I turned away and smiled at another Wal-Mart man nearby.  The first man continued to search the machine for the mysterious handle for moving the seat back.  The second man said "Hey, Carl, there's a knob under the seat that moves it forward and back."  The man turned to him and said "You're dead wrong!"  Then my DH lifted the seat and twisted the knob.  The seat slid back.  The man said "Well, if you buy this today, you get a $100 gift card."  No apology, no admission of ignorance.  Nothing!  I ask you, how dumb is that?  He actually got mad because he was wrong... and to be corrected by a woman... but wait the story gets better....
    I went back to the electronics to get a car charger for my phone.  I picked out the right one and a young man showed up immediately.  "Can I help you?" "Yes, I'm getting a car charger for my cell phone."  "That's the wrong one," he said taking it from me, replacing it on the rack and pulling off another one.
    "I'm sorry, but that one won't work," I said. 
    "Oh, yes!  It is the right one for your phone," he insisted.
    I flipped open the little port for the usb and said "See, looky here, young man.  That one is way too big and I just bought one of those at Best Buy and had to take it back not more than an hour ago.  I need that one there, please."  I gestured to the first one.
    He squinted at the phone and then got the other one for me.  "Oh, well, I see that they are changing all the new phones," he said. 
    "Uh, huh," I nodded and smiled.  A Rumor Samsung is not a new fone.  Sorry.  I must really look dumb for even a little old lady, eh?

    East Texas? Where would that be Ms. Cobbie? Just wondering where you could be that WALMART would be fun!
    And have you been to the Meet up thread lately? I left you a bit of a message there, rather than a PM... :-\

    The big metropolis of Gilmer, Texas. Wal-Mart is THE place to go...for me, at least. Of course, I haven't been in a while. It might have changed...<she says, backpeddling, since she seems to be in the minority here and is being view as weird.>

    Yes, I have been monitoring the Meet-up thread. Was getting dizzy...yes, we're coming Saturday...no, we can't...yes, we can on Sunday...it's in Salado...Olivia is going to Austin...dizzy, I say. But schedule permitting, and if the weather holds...remember last time...I'll be there.  :)

    OK... now you got ME confoosed!! ;D I did not get all of THAT in the thread... :-\ Maybe I am TOO used to that kinda decision/indecision "making"... ::) Salado is a bit of a drive for us... like 210 miles each way... but I can do it... as long as it doesn't... *should I say it?...*... SNOW! ::) That WAS wild in Dallas!

    OT: We rented four movies from Redbox and I fell asleep... and slept thru the first two! :D Which DH said were So-So.... I got a few hours of "stolen sleep" and missed two bad movies! ;D But missed out on "quality time" with DH! :-\ ;) Maybe it should be a "Bump" instead. :D
