Yeah, yeah.
I've had a bunch of stuff to post, but just haven't gotten arountuit.

I really want to complain about my sister and taking care of my ma. It's really running me down. I hope by the start of next year's tax season, my sister finally decides to have some help come to the house - aids or hospice or SOMEONE!
I just can't do any more than I already am.

So, let's think happy thoughts.

Hmm, well, tax season is over. YAYS!!!
This was my 25th year doing taxes. H&R gives thank you gifts to their employees every 5 years.  I'm going to try to hang on for year 35, when I can get a grandfather clock.  
This year I chose a toaster oven, exactly like this -

It makes me want to cook a chicken.
I haven't set it up yet, I need to clean off space somewhere in this hellhole. I wish I had the will.
Oh-oh. Sliding away from happy.

OK. here is my new birdhouse, which was an impulse buy, but I love it. So cheery. I am waffling on where to hang it - off the chestnut tree at the top of the driveway (where I can see it from the kitchen window, but not from the front deck), or to the south of the house in the woods (where I can see it from the deck).

Made my 'Supercar Driving Experience' appointment for May 31st.  Wow, they have a lot of rules.  I have to show up a half hour before to go over everything and give them a chance to check me out.  Can't wear slip-on shoes and if you rev the engine over...hmm, I think 1600 rpm's they charge you, like $1k for wear & tear on the engine!  I'm gonna have to print everything out to make sure I don't do anything against the rules.
I need to find a friend to come with me to take pics.  

Let's see, what else can I share.

Best lotion ever -

I swear, my feet have never been this soft during a winter since...since...I can't even remember when. It is miraculous.
I buy mine from Tractor Supply Co., but I haven't seen it anywhere else in stores around here. I should compare prices there to the Amazon prices.

I saw one of those ridiculous tiny cars a few weeks ago.

In case you can't see the licence plate, it says WIND UP. 
And they attached a wind up key to the back. It actually turned in the wind. 
That's classic.

And, I wish this pic was better, but I couldn't get any closer.  
The yellow lines are above the classic, T-shaped deer heads, which just looked so funny sticking up across the field.
They are standing in a dip in the field, which is why you can't see any bodies.  Hmm, I guess it looked better in real life.

And, on another note - 
I was watching the old Batman show last night, and this dialogue had me rolling.

Commissioner Gordon - The moment we've dreaded has arrived.  

Chief O'Hara - You mean....

Commissioner Gordon - Yes, Chief O'Hara.  We're going to have to solve a case...ourselves.  

[Bruce was on vacation somewhere in the wilderness at a camp for wealthy playboys and Dick was at some school schmoozing up a girl.  Hence, no Batman & Robin.  But, they came back in the nick of time, of course.]  

And, this from tonight's Once Upon A Time TV show -
Grumpy - Name's Grumpy.  Not stupid.  

Also made me laugh.  Simple things for simple minds, you know.  

I guess that's it for now.  I have to go pet my virtual familiars.

I just now saw this post because I got so wrapped up in the FR info you posted above that I didn't scroll down any further on the flist!

I'm sorry about the stress on you with the family situation, don't know what to say on that but the standing offer of *virtual tea and hugs*.

Congrats on the 25 years and the epic toaster oven! Hope you enjoy it.

That is the cutest birdhouse I have ever seen! It is indeed very cheerful and a good herald of Spring!

Ooh, the car thing is coming up soon! Always good to have something to look forward to!

*bookmarks lotion page*

The car is hilarious with the windup thing that turns in the wind and matches the license plate. Some people.

THOSE DEER! I had to enlarge the pic but then I could see all those little ears. How cute! ^^
