Excuse Us While We Goof Around For a Bit!

Dr. Evil & Mr. BiggelsworthIt's been a busy week what with spending way too much time in court on Monday (thank you again to the ex-husband for being a reasonable man and allowing this to be worked out like two adults who had the best interest of their children at heart), regular work, overtime at work, trying new recipes in the kitchen, laundry,dental appointments, grocery-shopping, and other assorted stuff.

With all that, I've not gotten another vacation post done or even thought about looking at or editing any of the myriad of pictures I took whilst traipsing around northwestern Connecticut with Princess Patti of Ansonia in the Valley last Saturday.  Alas, at the rate I'm going with these posts, it'll be Christmas before I finish telling you about my vacation to Maine and I'll have forgotten all the things we saw!  I really need to learn to be not quite so wordy ... heck, it's not like I'm getting paid by the word or anything!  

Anyhow, I'm going to try to get caught up on things here in the Blogosphere later on but for today I'm going to be pointing the car northeast and heading up to Beverly to drop a few things off to Amanda, visit with her and her brain-twin Sami whom I haven't seen in far too long and who will be visiting from Amherst, as well as probably get talked into buying groceries or at least lunch!  Heck, if I'm going to drive all that way, I can at least buy lunch, eh? I am taking cupcakes with me but still ...

Jamie is going to spend the day at her grandmother's raking leaves and earning a few bucks of her own while I go to see her sister and then on Sunday we'll attack the leaves in our own yard before settling down for some relaxed TV watching and maybe a bit of Rock Band on the XBox while waiting for my son to bring the grandsons over in the evening for a little trick-or-treating.

I'm not sure if any of that qualifies as goofing around or not but it does count as time off of the computer and I've also told myself to leave off taking so many pictures until I can get some of the ones I already have edited. Let's see how long that lasts, shall we?

Everyone have a lovely Saturday doing whatever it is that you're going to be doing and I'm sure I'll be back soon!


  1. Sometimes a Rose needs to just be a pretty rose. It doesn't need to be a rosa-palustris.

    All of the photos I've taken lately have been with my iPhone, because sometimes the best camera is the one in your hand, for the moment at hand.

    I'm glad you're driving up to see Amanda. With Cupcakes. :]

    It seems Tesla has taken a shine to Jaime. Or at least to her lap and hand scritches. :}

    Relax. Live your life. Life's too short as it is. Big hugs :]

  2. Glad to hear the court thing went well.

    Take time to goof around and just enjoy it - you work hard, you deserve it. x

  6. Since I am also waaay behind in taking care of vacation photos, I can so relate to your time problems. Sigh. Just go have some fun and seize the day. That is what life is about, not some arbitrary schedule.

    Big hugs, honey...

  7. I'm glad things worked out in court. I was wondering about that. Perhaps you can settle down a bit now. I know how court can mess up your life for a bit. That unknown thing.

    Have a terrific trip to see Amanda and yes on lunch. Excellent idea and then the cupcakes. Big hug. :)

  8. enjoy the trick or treating!! it's so much fun when it's the grandkids
