Okay for starters here, I have to give a big ol' shout out to an old friend who confessed he reads my little blog so "Hi, Tommy Salami!!"
That's not his real last name.
So, yesterday I was reading the local weekly rag and there was a letter to the editor that I thought was absolutely brilliant. It was in rebuttal to a letter the previous week written by a woman who had her panties in a twist over a cartoon of Michelle Bachmann and how the commie liberal hommasexshuls are ruining the world for God-fearing Christian Conservatives.
And I don't know about you but isn't "commie liberal" an oxymoron? Because if there's anything the Communist regimes are known for, it's their liberal policies especially toward human rights. Or, Not.
Anyway, here is the response:
After reading your rant of August 25, a rational person might believe you to be an ultra-conservative bigot but most people can see that deep down, you are."
After being late for school her first day because of her propensity to dawdle, Thing 2 did much better her second day of school. We left 10 minutes earlier and arrived at the Designated Drop Off Location (Sizzler parking lot) in 7 minutes. Which meant I got to listen to her whine about what she was going to do for 20 minutes until the bell rang. I told her to saunter more slowly than usual and to get her butt outta the car.
Well today, she decided to dawdle yet again. I'm sitting out in the car, honking the horn because it's late and she comes sauntering out the gate and gets in the car. We're halfway to school when she suddenly says, "Oh crap." And of course I say, "What now?" and she informs me she forgot her lunch. The lunch that I pack for her every morning and place it in a visible place that she can't overlook.
But she did.
And I tell her, "Sucks for you" and I keep driving. And of course I lecture her once again on her Time Management skills and lack thereof.
So our kitchen remodel is coming along nicely. I think. We've got the old microwave plopped on the counter so I'm able to make microwave meals. Look how massive this thing is:
It's the kind that goes over your range and doubles as a range hood and I never noticed its massive size until we plopped it on the counter. But it works and that's the important thing here.
The mess from this remodel has been an issue so yesterday was "Clean up Day." We went from this:
It's nice being able to walk from the back gate into the house without feeling like I'm on an obstacle course. Although we still have Hillbilly Hardscape (old appliances) sitting there.
I really must stick "For Sale" signs on them and put them in the driveway this weekend. I gotta get rid of them.
So Labor Day is this weekend which means I don't have to get up at 6:00am for the next 3 days. Woo-hoo!
Back in the day, Labor Day meant heading to the Colorado River for 3 days of debauchery but now, sleeping in is so much better.
Who knows how to party? Obviously not this gal any more.
