I didn't mean to leave you hanging, internet, but my wonderful friend Barbie came to visit yesterday and we were just having so much fun that I couldn't blog. Then she left and it was bedtime for the kids, except MG put me to bed instead of the other way 'round. Oops.
I missed you, though, and I just LOVE what you're doing with your hair! So cute!!
So what's been going on since I wrote last? Well, speaking of cute hair, Tina Fey nailed her impression of Sarah Palin.
Hi-freakin'-larious. I don't care what your politics are, that was just too funny. Could she be any more like Palin? They must have been separated at birth. (Sorry about the ad. It's from NBC's website, though, so it's all nice and legal.)
Interesting side note, BJ and I were just talking about the sketch, and he had heard on CNN that Palin thought it was funny and that she had been Tina Fey for Halloween one year. I read somewhere online (of course I can't remember where) that she had watched it on a chartered plane, and the press were watching it and cracking up, but Palin's area in the front of the plane was silent throughout the entire sketch. You just can't believe anything you hear or read anymore. I'm not even sure that any of these people are actually running for office...
Speaking of which, if I ever run for anything (HA!) don't let me go on The View. Those cats have claws! Rrowr! I think Bahbah Wahwah is getting a bit senile, though. "We white folk will take care of you!"???? OMG, Bahbah, that's not even a little bit appropriate. Sherry was about to die. But she couldn't say, "Oh no you dih-n't!" because Bahbah is her boss.
Meanwhile, there was a hurricane in Grammaland. No, it is not typical whatsoever to have hurricanes in Northern Indiana. I've lived here my entire life, and I have never heard of such a storm. Reports vary, but I've heard that they got 11.5 inches over 2 days, and another person said that they got 9 inches in one day (and I'm fully aware that both numbers could be correct). My mom just finished work on her chapel recently - guess she should have been building an ark, instead! (They had a bit of water in the basement, nothing like my sister, who had 6.5 inches in her basement!!) Everyone is fine, though, as far as we know, so no one needs to worry.
My Barb (who goes by "Barbara Dahling," and "Air Force Barbie," NOT Bahbah) and I hung out at the mall yesterday (my wedding ring lost a stone, which is no big deal because they're little ones) so I took it to get repaired, then bought those dishtowels and placemats at Kohl's that I wanted. Then we played at the playplace until the kids started running away from the playplace, then we went out for dinner. It was nice to get a chance to see her and just hang out and chat. She lives in Ft. Wayne, so it has been forever since we've had an opportunity to do that. She's one of those friends who I can just start back up where we left off, even if it has been several months, or even a year. I love that about her. Gosh, we've been friends since 1993. Crazy.
I worked today. The kids stayed home with Allison. I'm coming down with a cold, so BJ brought me a cup of hot (decaf) tea with honey, and I'm going to drink it, assure you folks that I am still here and that the FBI didn't come arrest me because of that post the other day, nor did I float away due to unregional weather anomalies, and then I'm going to take several Benedryl and a handfull of ibuprofen and go to bed.
Claire has her 18 month she-used-to-be-well-but-then-you-brought-her-to-the-doctor's-office-so-she'll-be-sick-in-3-days-that'll-be-$20-sucker baby visit tomorrow. I'm sure I'll have lots to complain about.
