Thanks folks, they're here all week

Snippets from the funny farm:

Friday my son, B, ready to get into our new larger pool grabbed his life jacket and put it on himself. Looking at the strap that goes through the crotch area my hubby inquired as to whether it was too tight and if "things" weren't squished down below.

"What you mean my boys ?" my son questioned. (Let me tell you when you hear this from a serious six year old you snort... a lot)

And then there was this:

Hubby and I were sitting down watching "Things we Lost in the Fire" when hubby said "I don't get why women think he's so handsome," referring to Benecio Del Toro.

"He may not have traditional good looks" I answered "but he's got a lot of sex appeal. There are some people that can just do things that exude sexiness, you know what I mean?"

And with a straight face, hubby said, "I know" he says "It's kinda like me...when I breathe"

Ba-dum-bum! Ching!

So yeah maybe I did marry him for his sense of humor. He's kinda quick witted like that.

They're lucky I even have pants on

I wish the stars would align, or the universe would turn inside out or whatever needs to happen to make me a morning person.

I hate that I'm this evil grumpy hag for the first 15 minutes of my day every weekday morning I'm woken up by that demon called the alarm clock.

As I stand in front of my mirror trying to care that I'm supposed to look half decent, all I can think about is how much I hate this process. So I kind of half-ass it and get dressed in the closest thing to casual I can and somehow even though I'm half-assing it I always manage to get behind schedule. Don't tell anybody...but it might be because I've fallen back asleep in my closet. Or on some mornings where I'm really hating it I may have fallen asleep on the terlit. But that's just between you and me.


All this makes me think, I really want my in-laws to adopt me. Sure I'm their "daughter-in-law", but I want to be their actual kid. And live with them permanently and live the life I lived last week. One of a spoiled pampered princess.

I woke up when I wanted to , to coffee, tea and a breakfast of champions (and I'm not talking Wheaties, folks, I'm talking the fluffiest, flavorful perfect sized pancakes, sausages, bacon, milk , oj, you name it it was there). Then if I wanted to I could take a dip in their pool, or if the mood struck me I chilled in the hot tub. Then after lazing around, chatting up other fam, lunch and dinner (can you say the yummiest brisket ever) were made for me.

Then there were the days at the lake resort where I drove a jet ski for the first time (I've only ever been a passenger before - Nevermind that I came close to hitting a boat...) Swam, ate, drank, played games, took walks, jumped in the lake, relaxed, laughed, rinsed and repeated.

Gah, a girl could really get used to that.

So I'm work. And I'm tired and whiny and maybe a little eviler than normal because man...vacay was good.

But give me a few minutes. I'll get back in to this blog thing. Cuz truth be told I might have missed you guys.

But only a little...

It's all about the Vacay...

I'd venture to say this is probably one of the coolest Mondays ever. And that's saying a lot coming from me because frankly I think Mondays suck big bull testicles.

Not this one,though. Because in addition to this awesome present my boss brought back from the HR conference in N'awlins...

I am working just two days this week and then you'll found me on one of them aeroplanes headed for hotter than hades Texas where I will be vacationing with the fam by the lake - family reunion style

Aah....I can feel the relaxation already.

So talk amongst yourselves. I'll be back sometime next week.
