First of all, before I begin to list all of the exciting things I’ve done over the past few days, let’s all take a moment and say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Tania-the-Mad.
It’s safe to say that Tania was a lot of things in Alaska, but LOST was not one of them. People on cruise ships could see her! Happy Birthday, Sister. I hope your day is as bright as your clothing!
Where was I? Friday I had a meeting with my writing friends while JD drove to Indiana and back. He could have flown but someone had used all the frequent-flier miles. Whoopsie. I picked Moon up from school and she informed me that she’d been invited over to her BFF from school’s house. There is no saying NO to her BFF from school’s house. I can’t compete with a pool and a playhouse and a neighborhood full of fun kids playing something called “War”. The afternoon fun turned into overnight fun so I had the house to myself. What to do? I know, BRIDGE.
Kittens, I’ve discovered bridge online. Oh sure, anyone can play bridge online, but did you know you can play actual tournaments with ROBOTS for only a dollar a game? I KNOW. If you win, you get real ACBL points! I’m proud to say that I am .39 points richer, or $20.00 poorer, depending on how you look at it. I choose the former, obviously.
Saturday I picked up Moon from her friends house, sent her to her room to clean, woke her up three hours later, and sent her to clean again. It’s a little something I like to call “our weekend”. After she’d assured me all was well, we invited her BFF-not-in-school over for an afternoon of 4-wheeling. Basically they rode circles around the yard at a top speed of 5 mph, but it kept them busy and allowed me to yell at my robot partners for a few more hours.
This was also the first day of JD and Lisa’s Reboot! Yes, I decided last week that we should do another juice fast, this time for THIRTY days, and all juice, no food! That lasted until about noon, when I decided that we should do juice and RAW food, I mean, hello? Then at dinner, I decided that raw was a bit too restrictive and we’d just narrow it down to juice, raw, and cooked food. All of this to say, it’s going really well.
Sunday morning was Mother’s Day so I woke up to a lovely glass of carrot juice. Yum. Ola. Then we went to church, and Costco where I got to not eat any of the free samples. But Mother’s Day is not about what you eat. It’s about what you GET. And I got a juicer.
Or as I like to call it, Tania-the-Mad’s belated birthday gift.
