Just a brief check in as I continue to unravel. I have unlimited energy, but of the wrong variety. Nervous energy does not go far in the way of being conducive to getting things done, or at least not the things on my list. No, this form of energy is the "just keep moving" brand, as opposed to the sit, think, plan kind. So instead of finishing my son's scrapbook, which would require me to stand still and risk an emotion overload as all that remains is writing him a few messages, I purged the linen closet. I am having trouble taking five minutes to order some photos for my son to give his friends as gifts this weekend and to fill the empty multi-opening picture frame on our family room wall because I feel like I just climbed out of the photograph sinkhole and fear falling back in! Instead I went to the store for the ingredients I need two weeks from now. Twirling, twirling, spinning, spinning! Just keep swimming! Find some random!
Just in case you've been concerned about how cell phones have impacted teenage relationships, I offer this gem...My son went golfing with some of his guy friends yesterday. Last night he mentioned that his friend had broken up with his girlfriend before they started golfing, "but they were back together by the tenth hole". I was disappointed that a six month relationship was terminated via text messaging, but was also perplexed as to how the fences were mended via the same system. Mostly I was just amused by the report.
Technically this is another gem from the monkey in the field since she was the one to give my aunt this gift...
Obviously this item was for big spenders with that $19.99 price tag...and obviously it was a big seller with that markdown!
What?! Discontinued?! Hmmm, how else could one POSSIBLY take a drink from too hot to just right in minutes? Maybe by looking at it? Blowing on it? I have a sneaking suspicion that these will keep your hot drink lukewarm, as in room temperature, for awhile. Stay tuned for further reports on these "beverage temperature regulators" from Just Right Joe (not to be confused with Average Joe).
By the way, the barn swallows? Out. Of. Control. I am maintaining a slight edge...very slight. It's just a matter of time before I gather up the evidence for a full report.
