After unsuccessful attempts to delegate, much complaining, a bit of whining and foot stomping, I took advantage of the ridiculously warm weather today and put some lights up outside. Ho, ho, ho? No, no, no...not really. Here is the conversation that just took place when my husband walked in over twenty minutes late from work:
Me: Really? (I like to skip the pleasantries apparently)
Him: Oh I was on time, but I had to drive around the block seven or eight times waiting for my eyes to adjust to the light.
Me: Shut up, and I am not even going to try to sugar coat that for the sake of the children.
Daughter, son and son's friend: (more laughter than might have been necessary)
Me: Then go drive around some more and pick yourself up some dinner while you're out.
Him: They look great.
I probably need to concern myself with things that truly need to be done, as I am running out of excuses and distractions (like bright shiny lights). First, however, I need to get these things off my mind (and cellphone).
It saddens me a bit that newspaper readership is on the decline, but does anybody think headlines like these are going to boost sales?
Please note the bylines sharing the front page in the upper right hand corner: searching for Christmas trees, and a mother who stashed cocaine in a baby's crib. I am so proud to live in Central New York.
Let's just file this one under "Things I've seen at the places I clean". I suppose it could be filed right between "Oh, that's petrified dog crap, not a Tootsie Roll" and "What is this wrist strap type thing attached to the bed post that I sucked up into the vacuum cleaner hose, and why are they on the three other posts too?" So let's call this "One of these things is not like the others"...
I decided not to put the toothpaste in with this collection, as I figured there was a greater plan in place that I did not want to risk mixing up...or that Reach is an outrageous applicator?
Let's move on to my grandmother's basement for a proper display of crappery...
If you find something you like, let me know and I will get it right in the mail to you. Might I recommend the "World's Greatest Mother- ( and Father-) In-Law" mugs? If you do not choose, I will be forced to select something on your behalf, so beware those of you who were fool enough to give me your addresses! I have already shown my basement shame, so I have no guilt showing other's (especially that of folks who don't have computers).
All of these things are lost on Fozzie because he can't see a darn thing! Somebody should take him for a haircut! (Really? Seriously? That is on MY list too?)
And finally, here is what was on the lunch menu at the medical center cafe...
FIVE GOLDEN RINGS (a fried things) ba dum bum bum. I wonder which office they took the o rings from and what delightful item got crossed off. I need to know! Maybe the cardiology office was giving away coupons.
Stacy is getting ready for a royal holiday! Her birthday is this Sunday, so radnomly stroll on over to wish her a happy one! Cheers!
