I'm just sitting here just trying to compose a witty, thoughtful post on my back porch; and how are you.....
Hmmmmm, what is that noise??
There are a couple of tags that I need to respond to - which I will get to. Eventually. I've actually been busy lately (which hasn't been the norm of late) . . . but I'm off next week (yay!) so maybe then?
What IS that noise??
'Course I also wanted to say something about how taste and smells can evoke memories; of places. Of people who are longer here and how they've influenced your life. And how very powerful those memories can be.....
What the hell?????
Or how I wanted to catch you up on my friend who is contemplating divorce. She's got him out of the house and some days seems to be on course; but doesn't seem to have the will to say SHAPE UP or SHIP OUT! (and seriously? Between you and me-though I am all for trying to work it out if possible- this AIN'T happening! He is NOT willing to attempt any change on his part) I keep telling her she needs to channel her inner bitch (or me; whichever is easier) in those moments.....
What the HELL is that NOISE?
Then of course, there are those comments from the last post. I really, really wanted to respond to a few of those. Especially since some seemed really concerned. Really? Nothing to be concerned about - all is well, despite how cryptic it may have seemed. Thank you, truly.
WHAT THE F*#%! IS THAT NOISE????? It's absolutely driving me BATTY!!!
Oh! It's Hubby.
On his lawn mower.
Apparently, Spring has sprung (finally) and it is time again to pull out the loud, obnoxious equipment that deals with the yard.
Hmmm. I suppose I'd better get used to it.
Because if you were with me last spring/summer you will recall that I have a neighbor that loves to mow his grass on an every other day basis (personally? I'm convinced this is his way of hiding from his family...I once caught him using his mower to blow his leaves - driving back and forth slowly through his lawn. Methodically pushing all the leaves to the tree line. Seriously? It took hours!)! And a neighbor with a very yappy dog (and apparently, a very yappy owner.....I'm just sayin' if you are more yappy than the dog.....there might be an issue......). And a neighbor with small children who make it seems like they are killing each other constantly (owwwww, my arm!!!!! owww my eye!!! Moooooooommmmmmmm! Funny, I've never heard her respond to one complaint from the small children......poor kids!) But I've yet to meet any of these neighbors (and we've been here 1 1/2 years - and generally? WE aren't shy....). If I had I might be a mite more sympathetic.......
SERIOUSLY? ENOUGH ALREADY WITH THE LAWN EQUIPMENT! A GIRL CAN'T HEAR HERSELF THINK HERE!!!!!!
