There's a lot to blog about, but I'm not feeling very articulate today, so I won't say more than a couple of sentences about any one thing.

First, my grandpa is very sick. He had to have surgery last night, but he seems to have made it through OK. The situation is still very serious, however, because his body is pretty much worn out--he's 97 years old.

Second, Husband slept really well last night because I did not snore once. However, I slept only fair because it was my first night using a CPAP machine. This is going to take a lot of getting used to. I had to force myself not to take off the mask in the middle of the night. My dog Pete wouldn't get very close to me after I put the mask on--he didn't like the way I looked.

Third, I did not watch Chimpy's speech last night. Just watching and listening to him gets on my nerves, so I'll just see what the commentators have to say about all of it.

Fourth, I still have a lot of work to do before school starts. I have to get my websites up and running, which will mean either going over to my parents' house to use their high speed internet or going to the office, and I don't want to go to the office until it's absolutely necessary.

Fifth, Husband is having sinus surgery on Tuesday, and he is scared half to death about it. I keep telling him that everything that the nurses said could go wrong won't go wrong for him. I think today I'll look online for people who have had the surgery just so he can see that lots of people go through it just fine. He'd never admit it, but he's a little bit of a hypochondriac, so if he knows about any complications that could occur, he will think that he's having the same complications. I hope he doesn't drive me crazy next week.

I guess that's all. I know your life is richer for reading all of this today.

I'm really not in a bad mood--I'm just feeling sort of lazy and don't feel like putting a lot of effort into providing you with one of my usual enlightening and thought-provoking articles.

I will be praying for you on all those issues JMG.

You can always be at your Pulitzer best. Some of us never are.

Thank you Tony!

You have a lot going on! Glad your grandfather is recovering--and I will pray your hubbie is calm and all goes well.

What type of sinus surgery, if you don't mind my asking?

I had my septum straightened and sinuses opened up and it was the best surgery ever. Very little pain, no stomach ache. Pain pills. Good combo.

And when they took the plastic stints and styrofoam out of my nose, I was good to go.

Justin, this is good to know. Husband is having septoplasty and turbinate reduction. I keep reassuring him that any pain he has can be controlled with meds--he'll sleep through the pain--and it'll be worth it after a few days.
