Do You Think I'm Adopted?
John plays dominoes on Thursdays from 1:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. so I can do what ever I want to. I wanted to go to the strawberry city to get my hair trimmed. I've told you about my cow lick andhow if it isn't cut correctly it stands up like Alph, well you know who I mean. I told the operator I was thinking of spiking my hair then the cow lick would be right in place. She must have taken me at my word 'cause she cut it short. Maybe I'll get some of that gel stuff and try it. I always like to try everything once. It must have affected my brain because I came home and moved all the furniture in the living room out into the middle of the floor. I learned a long time ago how to move furniture alone without hurting my back. If the floor is not carpeted you gently lift one end and take your toe and ease a throw rug under then do the same thing on the other end. Push and pull just a little at a time as you bend over at just the right angle. Make sure you have plenty of time so you can take lots of breaks. Lay on the couch and prop your feet on the back. Every other time you may want to go to the bedroom and lay on a heating pad for twenty minutes. If the floor is carpeted you have to move the furniture out on one end verrry slowly and then go to the other end and do the same. Keep switching ends with breaks in between until you get the furniture where you want it. My daughters say they think I'm adopted because I'm so different from my siblings. I would never tell them I have an online journal. I doubt if they know what a blog is. They would be so embarrased to know the stuff I write here. Anyway I even went to Wal*Mart and found a yard of material in a mauve color with pigs all over it. Ah ha! The little round table with the lamp has a white cloth and it gets dirty so quick with John's toothpicks, candy wrappers, little notes, etc. so I put the little piggy cloth over the white one and put all his little junk in a box down low on a stool by his chair where it doesn't show so much. Now John doesn't like change so I knew better then to do this rearranging when he was home. I had just finished when I heard his truck drive up so I disappeared into the kitchen. As I heard him come in the door I heard him say OH S---.
