Yeah, yeah, I had all these big plans to write about all of my exciting adventures last week; it ain’t gonna happen.  Sunday night was one where I didn’t get much sleep, and then I went to work for nine whole hours at the day job which was totally unfair.  By the time I got home from the day job I was all ready to spring into action despite my exhaustion.

I did a bunch of stuff before dinner, and then continued that bunch of stuff after dinner.  When it came time for me to upload the pictures I needed for the blog posts I planned the computer froze up and pooped out.  I simply can’t tell you about my adventures without visual aids, so I decided to try uploading again tomorrow.

But here I am, writing to you anyway because I feel like I owe someone an explanation of how I’ve been occupying my time.  That’s ridiculous, but nevertheless…

I did a load of laundry, namely lots of towels.  I would have changed the sheets on the bed but Husby had the bed all made up and I hated to tear it apart just for the luxury of clean sheets.  I’ll tell him to leave the bed unmade today so I can strip it and change the sheets.

Also occupying my time was the completion of two craft show applications, which were really hard and make me sweaty because they were electronic applications and I’m never sure if I complete those correctly or not.  After the applications I balanced the household checkbook, which also causes me to break out in a nervous sweat now because I’m doing that electronically too.  I’ve only done it once before and it makes me very nervous.  Balancing the checkbook isn’t the problem, it’s just that doing something a new way always seems wrong and bad.

To cool off I decided to take a break and watch an old episode of Rhoda.  I always wanted to be like Rhoda but never really got the hang of it.  It probably would have helped if I had writers to help me along with quick and funny come-backs and a personal shopper who could dress me up in all those funky clothes Rhoda wore.

Alas, it was once again time for the evening ritual of preparing for bed.  Even though I got a lot done, the items on my to-do list still out number by far the things I’ve crossed off the list.  Oh well, as Scarlett O’Hara would say, tomorrow is another day.

Back Home Again

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written anything here, or anywhere else for that matter.  I’ve been on the road for business and pleasure, but now I’m back home and have no excuse for not checking in once in a while.  Except for the fact that I have to catch up on everything I’ve not been doing for the past week and a half.

First of all I want to give a shout out to Lisa and John from Fond du Lac.  I don’t know if they’re peeking in at all, but I sure appreciated them coming up to my booth at the Olde Ellison Bay Days art and craft show and introducing themselves.  It’s so much fun to meet people who read my blog; it makes me feel less invisible in the vastness of cyberspace.  Lisa and John are really fun people and Husby and I were thrilled to make their acquaintance and chat with them for a while.

I’ll be talking about our visit to the Door County peninsula more this week, as well as my experience making actual physical contact with Tony Shalhoub.  I’ll also clue you in on what I did to celebrate our country’s independence and Paenney’s birthday.

For now I have to concentrate on what needs to be done this week.  There will be house cleaning, car washing, restocking product for my next craft show, and of course lots of laundry.  More than anything I’m looking forward to catching up with the blog posts I’ve missed while I was away.

And for a little blast from the past I’m sharing a song with the same title as this post.  I was completely in love with John Denver oh so many years ago.
