Soap Operas, Racing Heart & Why are my oranges from Australia?

As stated before I need a job. Reason number thirty six is because I'm addicted and absorbed and obsessed with Days of Our Lives. I want Sami to know that Nicole has her baby so badly I could just jump right into the TV and tell her, shake her, yell at her! The urge is hard to ignore.
And apparently chemo can cause heart problems of which I have developed in the form of A-fib. It is a long story of which perhaps I will share soon but right now I just sort of have it on the back burner until I see the cardiologist again in December. I've told nobody about this outside of this house and one other person simply because I figure they are tired of hearing of my tragedies. I AM tired of having them for sure. So, anyway, since I'm on Wafarin which is a blood thinner, I have to go to have that checked every week or so and I go to a nearby town of Silverdale. I like to go to the stores there to buy fruit but lately the fruit everywhere looks bad, I guess it is in between seasons. Apples and Pears are lovely but the oranges and grapefruits looks bad. I bought some navel oranges that looked ok and when I got home I realized they are from Australia! WHAT THE HECK??? I'm not so far from California, why can't I have California oranges? Or even Florida would be wonderful, why do we have to get fruit from other countries?? It disturbs me greatly.

AND last but not least, Haleigh and I made terrariums this summer(or maybe I should say last summer) and the African Violet is blooming again in mine. I'm really excited because I've never been able to make any plant live much less BLOOM.

And that is my story for today.

I wouldn't admit this to anyone else on the planet (though apparently anyone who reads your comments will now know too) but I'm hooked on Days too. I have watched it on and off since (and I'm not kidding) birth! My parents watched it, and when life and school allowed, I watched it too. Now, I occassionally check it out on Hulu... so even getting you back to work may not end your addiction (but you can watch it on your own time table!)

I'm with you. Let's tell Sami now! :)

I am really trying to eat local foods, although a northern state doesn't produce many fruits and vegetables in the winter!! But I certainly don't want to eat oranges from Australia! It's wrong, just wrong.

And you be careful with that heart thing until you get back to the doctor in December. And stay away from the flu stuff too.

That's what I'm talking about Marge, it is dumb dumb dumb! We should have local food!
