It's 6:45 and I am awake.  

6:45am...as in the morning!

I'm not sure what has me up so early, but I'm going to take advantage of the peace and quiet and play with Red Velvet Cake:

I've already had one cup of damn good, and the paper has been read cover to cover, so I suppose there's no reason at all why I can't enjoy a little early morning peaceful paradise...right?

Buzzy is just forlorn today and looking like a truck hit him, but we're going to do our level best to go to chair time today. Because I did not get a treatment Monday, I really cannot afford to skip today....that would leave too many days in between treatments and land me in the hospital.

Nope. Not this spinster.

I have some lidocaine cream that I've never used, so I might dab a bit today to help keep me off the ceiling during needle insertion. I normally just tough it out because the pain only lasts a few minutes, but today might be the exception to the rule.

(I don't use the cream because the folks at the Access Center told me that it breaks down the skin eventually, and that the end result is worse than the poke.)

So that's it...some stitching, some more damn good, and then chair time. If all goes well, I am hoping for a good dinner on the balcony tonight...little steaks and salad and a popsicle for dessert!

Here's hoping that your very own Futzingday is...futzy! Come tell me all about it!


  1. Just said a little prayer for you and Buzzy

  2. Happy National Thread a Needle Day, Coni! Hope chair time goes smoothly for you today after yesterday's roto-rotoring of Buzzy. Thinking of you!

  3. Hoping you're feeling okay today and will you please, please, please get on over to Flosstube on YouTube and do some videos???

  4. Hope today went well. Remember what my mother always said when I was having difficult times: "This too will pads". She was correct. You are in my thoughts.

  5. I hope all went well today, Coni.
