And We Thought the Insanity Would End...


I saw my kids off to school yesterday after several days of frenetic supply shopping, arguing over summer assignment completion deadlines, and general lousy moods over the end of their freedom.

For some reason I thought this would leave me with time to, oh... I don't know, write in our blog or something. I was delusional. I have done nothing but try to repair the damage done by having three children home for two and a half months. We had no food in the house. Laundry has progressed to the point where climbing gear is required to scale the piles of clothes. I'd tell you about the Dust Bunnies, but they are so big I'm afraid they'll ambush me if they catch wind of my plan to eradicate them.

I hope that by next week I will be able to find my way over to Ethel's and make sure she is properly untied. Somehow I expect she'll have something to say over Fred Thompson announcing his presidential intentions on Jay Leno, don't you?

LOL...sounds like you've plenty of catching up to do! My best to Ethel when/if you get a chance to see her :o)

Mauigirl said...

Yay! Glad to see you are surfacing! I kept checking to see if you had a new post and never gave up! Looking forward to the next one.

Marva said...

Welcome back to blogland. I've only been checking in once a week, but now I'll go back to my daily drop in.

Not Your Mama said...

Welcome back.

two crows said...

so glad you're back Lucy!
I hadn't given up on you, either.
can't wait till you and Ethel have recovered sufficiently to sit up and take nourishment. :)

Welcome back. You have been missed. "I'd tell you about the Dust Bunnies, but they are so big I'm afraid they'll ambush me if they catch wind of my plan to eradicate them."

I wrote about Quentin Crisp for manic Monday. It is obvious you need one of his quotes: "Housework is totally unnecessary. After the first four years, it doesn't get any worse."

I don't care if he's GOP, if Fred Thompson peppers his presidential campaign with lines from some of his movie roles, I might get suckered.

For instance when asked about Iraq, he could say "This business is going to get out of control. It's going to get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it."

If someone asks him about dissension among candidates, he could reply "If you two wanna turn yourselves into a greasy spot out on a country road somewhere, go right ahead. I don't give a shit and I don't think anybody else does, but you two monkeys are not going to do it on my racetrack."

When asked about terrorism: "What the hell is that supposed to mean? I know we're all dummies up here, McClane, but give us a little taste of your brilliant genius! What are we talking about, a hijacking..."

I mean, this has so much potential! :D

I hope the both of you are just saving it all up for the elections, eh. Take care and have fun!

Hey!
Guess where I found you?
The very first place I "registered" my blog... "Bloggershomepage.com"
Wow... and you were there! I'm the big podgy smiley face on Panama...
How's it all going then? I'm particularly interested to know the aftermath of the hair escapade? I was in a bit of a pickle myself as THAT was going on ...

Gledwood said...

ps do you like my hamsters?

two crows said...

hey, L and E--
this is totally off thread but I'm trying to get it out to as large an audience as possible:
Macy's has been hosting the Path to Peace Project in conjunction with women's cooperatives in Rwanda for about a year now.

apparently it has had the hoped-for results [good PR for the company and, probably, warm-fuzzy feelings among top management]

anyhow they're doing it again:
this Saturday there's a 20% sale coupled with some percentage of sales going to good causes.

so, go shopping at Macy's this Saturday! and spread the word!

the more other companies see us reward Macy's for this sort of behavior by buying their stuff, the more likely they are to grow consciences, too.
and the more Macy's sees it working for their bottom line, the more likely they are to keep it up.

as for me, I had planned to buy some cookware at Big Lots this weekend [there's a sale there, too.]
but, now I'm gonna get it at Macy's instead. . . .

Mando Mama said...

Oh, don't y'all worry about Fred Thompson. He just wants to play himself in the movie.

I hope everyone is untied and settled into the routine of the next few months. It's impossible for me to believe that October is already very nearly gone.

Cheers,
MM

Catmoves said...

Well, welcome back L and E. Thought you'd flown the coop and were luxuriating in Cuba or some other forbidden place.
Dubya's still ripe for the picking and now we've got tons of presidential hopefuls to go after.

MichaelBains said...

I'm starting to think y'all may be in Cube...

MichaelBains said...
