It's 80s and sunny.

I should be laying poolside reading a good book.

Why am I stuck inside cleaning the house??

How do you guys deal with cleaning the house/chores once the awesome weather hits?!!!! I don't want to spend a part of every weekend cleaning.

Be Still My Heart

Meet Louie . . . is he not just the cutest little guy?!!! See that tennis shoe lying there with him? That's mine. He would sneak into the room I was staying in at Cindy's house in Mobile, carry my shoe down the hall (how he did that I don't know because the shoe is just about as big as he is - he's a little Boston Terrier), and snuggle with my shoe on his bed. He never chewed on my shoe or messed it up, just wanted to snuggle with it. I'm surprised the smell didn't drive him away!!! Cindy said it's because he loves me :-) When her husband passed away unexpectedly 2 years ago, Richard's boots were by the door where Richard had left them. Louie would take one of Richard's boots and snuggle with it. What a sweet little guy.

Man, I am in a funk right now that even I don't like myself. Do you ever go through a funk where you say things that aren't very nice and that you wouldn't normally say? My hubby is usually the one on the receiving end :-( This is the part of my father I inherited and fight with to keep it suppressed . . . it's a nasty beast at times.

Just Wondering . . .

While Kate is traveling city to city promoting her book, and Jon is hanging out with a 23 year old female in the middle of the night, who the heck is watching their 8 kids???? And I'm sorry, I know Kate seems like she is a bitch, but honestly a 23 year old?? C'mon Jon. You take any mother with 8 kids and compare her to a 23 year old girl and gee, who do you think will be more "fun" to hang out with?? Give the 23 year old 8 kids to take care, a house to clean, finances to balance and we'll see how much fun she still is. Give me a break. And what really gets me is now my 12 year old daughter who use to enjoy watching the show is asking me questions as to what is going on with Jon & Kate and the "other woman." Great.

Mullet What????!!

While I was in Mobile 2 weeks, I attended my first ever "Mullet Toss" and had my first Bushwacker drink (my life is now complete!). When my friend Cindy said we were going to a Mullet Toss, I thought what the ?? How are you going to throw a guy with a mullet hairdo?!! I had no idea there was a FISH called a mullet!! So we headed to FloraBama, along with thousands of other folks, and watched contestants throw mullets from the Florida state line on the beach into Alabama - it was hilarious!!! The weather was awesome so we sat there, watched mullets being tossed, drank bushwackers and beers and got a little bit of sun - life is good!!

Great friends . . .
