What a Day!!!

Ok folks, great to see you tuned again for the Adventures of CancerGirl and SuperDog.

Today was such a stressful, interesting, fun, exciting day. I know that is a lot of adjectives.

It started this morning with the stressful. SH got out of his job at that place with the big trucks and called the lair to tell me that as we had discussed last evening, he would go to SuperWalMart (Where else would SuperHubby, CancerGirl and SuperDog shop?) and purchase a SuperPoweredRoomCoolingMachine or SPRCM (known as an Air Conditioner in the MortalWorld). CancerGirl was VERY VERY happy about this. It has been hot here in Paradise, and going through chemo and having to be getting sick when it is hot makes everything 100 times worse.

SuperHubby came home with the SPRCM and he brought it into the bedroom. SH and CG decided to install the SPRCM at the moment SH came into the house from work. He was very hot, he had worked all night then drove home in the heat. He wanted the put the SPRCM in as soon as possible. Now CG is well aware that doing any type of project like this in the Lair with SH always is a stressful event. CG has the experience of the last 15 years being with SH to know that when this situation arises, there will be an argument. Even SD was standing in the doorway of the sleeping quarters of the Lair saying "This is gonna be good, it always ends in chaos when they get together to do something"

SH has one way he thinks things should be done, and CG always thinks he is wrong about that. CG needs to work on this, as even SuperHeroes are not perfect. No matter what it is, CG seems to get in the way more then she helps.

It began years ago with a Computer Desk that was purchased for CG as a Christmas Gift from SH. He was putting it together and had the boards with screws sticking out of them on the bed waiting for glue to dry in the thingies the stick the things together, you know what I mean, right. Well anyway, CG (Clarice at the time as her SuperHero status was unknown at the time) came into the room and knocked the boards over and broke off about 10 of the 20 screws. It broke the computer desk pieces beyond repair. It was ruined. Clarice took the entire thing back to WalMart and while they didn't return the entire computer desk, they did find one that had been returned and they replaced the broken boards and gave us all the extra screws so it got taken care of.

Ok back to the SPRCM. When we last left the fateful pair, they had taken the SPRCM out of the box, and CG and SH placed the side thingies that fit the rest of the window onto the sides of it. The first order of business was to get the old SPRCM out of the window. CG had the brilliant idea to unplug it and drop it out the window (the window is about 4 1/2 feet from the ground). We did this and the SPRCM fell to the ground. SD said "I hope that the GuardianDogs (GD) outside weren't under that window" although she secretly hoped that at least the girl one was since she doesn't like her anyway, SD can sometimes have EvilThoughts that she has to fight against, and this was one of those times.

We then placed the new SPRCM into the window, with CG holding the SPRCM in the window. CG had the thought and mentioned that maybe one of us should be outside, but both SH and CG dismissed that thought immediately. Because we are both SuperHeroes, we both see no need to read instructions that come with anything that comes into the Lair. SH even has a saying to that fact that goes "Instructions!!! We don't need no stinking instructions" (said in his best german accent). Because we didn't read the instructions, we didn't realize nor did we take note of the piece of metal that we pulled out of the box and put aside. Because we did this, when we put the SPRCM in the window and lowered the window, the SPRCM wouldn't sit in the window correctly. SH notices 4 small holes along the top of the SPRCM and comes up with the idea to screw long screws into the holes (they looked like screws belonged in the holes) and when we screwed in the first one it only went in about 1/4 of a inch. After screwing in the second one he realized this was not going to work. He then noticed the metal piece they had previously removed from the box also had similar sized and exactly the same distance placed holes in it, and was shaped perfectly like it would sit on top of the SPRCM and hold it securely in the window without the fear of it falling out. They then decided the would remove the SPRCM from the window and put this piece on. SH said "Ok, you hold the SPRCM and I will lift the window up since the lock things can be hard to get" CG said "OK". SH grabbed the window locks, CG had the SPRCM and while SH was lifting the window the thought occurred to CG that she saw a piece of foam too that went with it. She took one hand off the SPRCM and well, it fell out the window. SD said "OHH SH is not gonna be happy with that". CG and SH spent a good 30 seconds just looking at each other. CG then went outside to retrieve the SPRCM.

Remember the old SPRCM that we earlier dropped out the window? Well guess what.... the new SPRCM fell directly on top of that, and fell off it and onto the ground. CG picked it up and lifted it to the window (now it could be asked why it is that CG is the one lifting the SPRCM, but well she ran out there first and she grabbed it first, and well she sometimes does things she shouldn't do and then pays for it later). Upon inspection, the only damage was a dent on the back of it. CG said "I will put it right back into the box and return it to SWM, of course SH would have none of it. He said "You broke it, now live with the consequences" It did mess up the side things that slide out to the edges of the window, but not to the point it couldn't be fixed. CG held the SPRCM in the window while SH attached the metal piece and repositioned it in the window and lowered the window on it. CG then came in and they turned it on (thank god it worked beautifully) and left the room to get cool.

Because SH believes in the SuperPower of Laughter just as much as CG does, when he was at SWM he purchased 2 stand up DVDs for CG. CG wanted to watch them immediately and was especially excited about the Robin Williams DVD. Below you can find a link to Amazon where if you purchase through that link part of your purchase contributes to Hats For Happiness, so please shop through those links.

Here is a link to some of the material on the movie. Please beware that some of it is a little off color and uses some foul language. This is not the Robin Williams of Patch Adams, but it was a awesome stand up set and the DVD has awesome bonus features with clips from about 12 different concerts throughout his career

After both CG and SH sat down and watched the Robin Williams DVD SH decided that he was going to go lay down and take a nap. SH was still pretty annoyed with CG since the SPRCM incident. CG hates when SH is mad at her, so she was pretty upset. She decided that she would do what she had been thinking of doing for a few weeks now, she decided she would shave SD down. SD didn't necessarily like the idea, but since she doesn't have much choice when it comes to things like this, she allowed it.

CG began shaving SD and right in the middle of it her clippers died on her, they just stopped. She tried everything to revive them but it was to no avail. SD at this point looked quite silly, and there was nothing that any amount of using scissors was going to fix, This upset CG even worse then she was before, because now she cant even take SD out with her when she goes out because well quite honestly, SD looks downright dumb. She has parts shaved, parts not shaved, she just looks silly. Of course because we used the money in the treasury (bank account) to get the SPRCM, we don't have the money to get a new pair of clippers, and with the way things look right now we wont have the money any time soon with the cost of CG special from the laboratory vitamins (prescriptions) we run very close to the bone financially. CG is trying to find a used pair for sale but isn't having much luck, hopefully something comes through because CG cant go out without her SideKick SuperDog.

Ok everyone, that is all for tonight, more on the adventures of CancerGirl tomorrow.
