Back to the Beginning

I guess you’ve noticed I haven’t written in a while. I am told although there aren’t many comments my readers want to hear more, so…After several complaints and an hour’s worth of sunburn courtesy of the bench outside Talbots, I decided perhaps it is time to share again. I used to think my mother-in-law should be the spokemodel for Talbots and I thought it was funny; now, I realize it is my dream job. I love their clothes (well most of them). Thus my transition from slutty adolecent to responsible mom begins. I honestly never knew there was a secret Talbots/Coldwater Creek/Christopher and Banks’ lover inside of me. Go figure. Anyway to quantify the sunburn remark and to give credit where credit is due, Weezie called me on Saturday while she was on the way to Hanceville for Divine Mercy Sunday (so jealous){P.S. Grandma is pissed at you}. I was just about to enter my second Talbots of the day in search of this shirt when my phone rang. I sat down on the bench right outside of the door to answer it. A little over an hour later, Weezie drove out of range, but not before I laughed so hard I had attracted quite a bit of attention. I wasn’t set to complain because it kept me from housework although it was kind of like have a carrot dangled in front of me, delaying the gratification of shopping, but then I got home and realized I was all sunburned. I guess I should be excited because it was actually warm enough in C-town to GET sunburn in April. Bottomline: thanks a lot Weezie, I blame you for my lack of accomplishments and painful arms! 😉

So what have I been up to you ask? In short, more things than I can keep track of. Good thing Christ is my co-pilot and I put him in charge! I am being sought for uncollected funds which remained unpaid through no fault of my own. Taine and I are building top secret Mother’s Day presents which will be totally awesome, but are taking a lot of work. I am also assembling a rosary prayer book for my mom with specially picked quotes from the Bible. Then I decided to organize all of the recipe clippings my mother-in law and I had aquired over the years (some are from as far back as the 60s) into my own recipe book. I must be insane! We are also redoing our gardens and yard which by the way has decided to grow only weeds and absolutely no grass except where the neighbor’s Chem-lawn bled over. I am planting a rose garden in memory of Fr. Michael, dedicated to St. Therese; I hope it will be in bloom in time for his birthday, but that is up to God and the weather. What else, oh that’s right, I have two Volunteer Appreciation Luncheons this week and a project at church to attend plus my regular Tuesday visits. And I am planning to be away from home for 3 weeks in May, so I am gearing up for that; redoing my closets to switch the spring and summer clothes in and put the fall and winter duds away. Oh yeah, half of the flowers I ordered (several weeks ago) for our new gardens are set to be delivered the week I leave, so I am trying to coordinate planting them so they don’t die while I am away, and dig up some of our old ones to share with my mother so she has something growing in her yard. Did I mention I have to keep them alive for 4 days in my car while I drive down there? I am also trying to sell stuff on ebay to make money for Jarrod’s graduation present and some new clothes for my fat ass. See, I have no job but I really am busy, and I do try to get to Mass everyday as well.

Well, enough of that; it is probably more than you ever wanted to know. That will teach you to ask! I do have a quick Veronica update. There will be no more Wednesday reshowings on UPN, so make sure and catch it on Tuesdays. Also be sure and vote in the Save Our Show Poll by e-mailing Veronica Mars (or your favorite endangered show) in the subject line to:

Until next time…Cheers!

P.S. Weezie, are you ever going to post that draft??? Save me, I am dying out here! LOL

    LOL I’m sorry you got sunburned! But, our hour and fifteen minute phone conversation sure did help my drive go by more quickly! It’s Tuesday…yea, VM! I normally hate Tuesdays, but it has become an awesome TV night which is great b/c it makes me feel better not only b/c my shows are on, but because it takes my mind off of what makes me hate Tuesdays.
