Shakes pompoms overhead because today is the scrappiest of birthdays! Happy birthday to Scrappy! May the day be filled with love and joy, and may the year to come be the best one yet.
Natter 77: I miss my friends. I miss my enemies. I miss the people I talked to every day.
Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, butt kicking, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.
We had a quick thunderstorm yesterday that cut the heat by a lot. Still headed back up today, but what a welcome relief.
Power is back.
We are driving way longer than I thought we were today for a 50th birthday party, then turning around and coming back to have people over this evening (since my niece and her fiance are coming down this weekend -- so that the three of us can go to the DC Pen Show tomorrow.)
It's all fun stuff -- and low key; we're just ordering in tonight, but it all feels like a lot.
I just wish I had realized my friend moved 45 minutes farther away than the hour they already lived from me. It happened during my hospital time, so I'm not surprised I missed the move, but... I wish I'd realized before I tried to pack it all in one weekend.
Welll, and then my niece's future in-laws threw a wrench in things by descending on the kids without checking dates -- lovely people, but just not plan-ahead, I guess? So we had to shift the day we were going to the show, so it's all kind of fucked up.
Anyway, I'm not even cranky, I'm just kind of over-mellow almost to the point of, eh, whatever. I guess that's better than being a stressball. I dunno.
Anyway, guess I'll get dressed and put some make-up on now.
And find some pep. I'm sure I have some around here somewhere.
I haven't gotten a whole lot done today. I'm going to try a New Thing, which is to reserve my bed for sleeping/napping only. Since I'm living alone now, it's not like getting up and turning on the TV in the living room is going to disturb anyone. (Indeed I've got the radio in the kitchen turned to NPR 24/7, in the hopes that the sound of voices will dissuade would-be burglars. God knows, the cats will be useless.)
Happy Birthday, Scrappy!
Happy birthday, Scrappy!
Sheryl and msbelle, I really hope the universe lets up on you this weekend.
JZ and Hec are the best of people, as we knew, and askye is so deserving of a lovely gift, as we also knew. Happy you are my people.
Did somebody try to claim that TCBITW has a husband and soon a house? Unpossible!
The potential buyer is a landscaper, and he said in his bid that the property would require "at least $30,000 of landscaping," and it totally felt like negging!
Well then that won’t be a problem for you, will it, landscaper jerk?
Happy Birthday Scrappy!!
We are ar moms and it's not turning out to be a great birthday thing. I'm tired. M is tired. Mom is tired of Dad. And she keeps making little comments about stuff under her breath. We just ended up having sandwiches for lunch and she made her own. I hear "I have to make my own sandwich. Happy birthday to me." And stuff like that.
