This week, I’m living up to my nickname and she said YES!

I wasn’t even going to post again this week, but then I didn’t want anyone to worry about me. Like, if I was *sick*. Ya, know? See, I do care about your feelings.

Busy, busy, busy. Mostly positive stuff, lots of projects, inside, outside, office, but also some not so fun stuff. Such is life.

The MOST exciting thing that happened this week….are you ready? Can you even stand it? I’m not kidding, it’s phenomenal news! I’m adding in extra exclamation points to get my point across!!

We bought a wedding dress!

She said YES. Although, it would have been a tad fun if Randy Feloni from Say Yes To The Dress had jumped out and surprised us. I do love a good surprise.

Lolo had made some appointments for dress shopping a long time ago, back when the world was only half baked, but then kept changing them as the covid rules were changing. Finally, she made one and said, what the hell, we’ll wear masks and search for a dress!

A little backstory if you will: I was going to post a link here of one or two blog posts where (but I found 47 posts containing the word PROM) I took my girls shopping for prom dresses. I think they each attended 3? (Might I remind everyone on the planet that I did not attend ONE prom. NOT.ONE.) But, my girls were the prom.com. And shopping for dresses was always an adventure because some people are indecisive. Very.indecisive. We would end up buying 2 or 3, bring them home and then think about them. Send pics to Grandparents and vote on them. It was very diplomatic, thought out and of course, a production.

SO, I prepared myself for wedding dress shopping like someone with PTSD going back to the scene of the crime.

Ya’ll, she found the most perfect dress in just over an hour at our very first appointment.

And perfect it is. *sigh*

AND, it was very close to her budget $$. I was very happy, mostly about the dress, I didn’t care about the budget so much…it’s THE dress for heavens sakes-spend the money!

Were there tears? Yes, but not as many as I had expected. I generally save my tears for when it’s not expected; you know, like when I’m watching a commercial or checking out at Costco.

We are very happy.


Have a safe and enjoyable July 4th weekend. Let freedom ring!. I still LOVE my country although I’d like to toss a lot of the inhabitants off the planet and say Que Sera Sera mo’ fo’s!

That’s it for me this week. I’m going to have a full plate all weekend but I will catch up with what you’re up to very soon, I promise!

XOXO

Good FOR you Rapunzul

We finally have internet at our house. Is it 1997? Turns out we were hit by lightning; that’s the 2nd time this year and possibly the 367th since 1997.


In a recent conversation with Linds I said in an applausable tone Good for you. I really meant it and I then I got to thinking, you can say it one way and it sounds nice, but if you change your tone, it sounds so sassy. So, I got all squirrely and said GOOD for YOU.

I don’t always put monsters on my blog, but when I do it’s him.

I finished the conversation, but kept telling myself throughout the day GOOD FOR YOU in my sassy ass tone.

I might be nuts.


Honestly, I had nothing to blog about today.

Not.a.damn.thing.

Then I remembered possibly the most important thing ever:

MY HAIR

I see my stylist religiously. No, not just on Sundays, but every six weeks we would visit and I’d have highlights and a trim.

I was due for that 7 weeks ago. So…..back to me doing math which is my least favorite thing ever. 7+6=13.

It’s been 13 weeks since my tendrils have been attended to. Salons opened a while ago, but my Liz doesn’t have anyone to watch her kids now that school and summer camp are cancelled.

Ma hairs are so long….

Ok, maybe not really long, but long for how I’ve been keeping it lately. And darker too.

Notice how I didn’t offer myself up to watch her kids. I’m nice, but not a maniac.

She offered to come to my house and I thought I would do that when I felt it necessary. But, I think I’m ok.

Am I ok?

I’ll see my girls on Sunday and get their opinion on the matter. They’ll tell me the truth. But it’s been kind of nice being (semi) low(ish)maintenance. Well, I’m still getting my nails did, because I’m not an animal.

I was so pleased to realize that I put on lipstick just before heading to the dentist where I had to wipe it all of. Wasted, yet again. .

And while I’m on the subject of the most important thing, I found out this past year that I have some gray hairs. I was so surprised to see them finally show up. It was like being 15 again and waiting for my period to come so I can suffer like the rest of my friends. I’m not so worried about them because I’m hoping they will have a coarser texture and it might look like I have SOME actual adult hairs on my head instead of toddler hair.

Also, won’t I be more distinguished? Is that how it works?

Anyhoo. For someone who doesn’t always have something to blog about I sure can fill a page.

*takes a bow* Wait, did someone just shout GOOD FOR YOU in the back row?

Happy Father’s Day to all you Dads, stepdads, Moms who are the Dads, Fur dads and doo-dads too.

What are y’all up to this weekend? Flying to Vegas or a weekend on the Riviera? Or are you cleaning your much too-used face masks.

*sigh* One day, this will hopefully be a distant memory.

XOXO
