This And That And The Kitchen Sink

I was going to write a leisurely post today about Listen To Your Mother, but it seems I am dying of some strange virus.  So I'll make this quick:

LTYM was awesome.  Once the video is up, I will link to it.  There are some excellent storytellers among us, ladies; and yesterday I was privileged to hear some of them onstage.

 *************

Larry has left me again.  But not before waking me up at 4:30 AM to say that he had missed his cab and could I drive him to the airport?  Later, I received a call from the airline about some missing luggage he had reported upon arrival at his destination.  Apparently, he has had a not-so-good day.  Serves him right.

 *************

Just kidding, Larry!  Come home, please!  And not just because you promised you would recaulk the kitchen sink this weekend!

 *************

About said sink: I mentioned to Larry the other day that I was going to go ahead and caulk it.   I'm feeling sort of fix-it empowered lately, what with my mad tub-unclogging skills.  Larry insisted that he would do it, don't touch it, it's complicated because we have to plan ahead not to use the sink for 24 hours...

Really, I don't see THAT as much of a problem, do you?  What?  I can't use my kitchen?  Oh, bummer.

 *************

I am impressed with all the strong opinions on flat top sheets versus duvets put forth in the comments to this post.  Apparently, the presidential candidates are neglecting a very important issue.

 *************

I now return to my fainting couch, while the poor children forage for dinner in my mess of a refrigerator.  Adieu...or, perhaps, good-bye?

  1. You got that right, a very important issue. I would not vote for anyone who forced duvets on their loved ones and would give preference to the candidate using a top sheet. So in case Larry is entertaining thoughts of running for President, he's got my vote. (But then he would have to reveal himself to your audience. Win-win!)

  2. Duvets and drains--you have your hands full over there, madam.

  3. I know! It's amazing that I have time to blog.

  4. How long can you milk the kitchen sink problem? I think it's in your best interest for it to remain uncaulked, thus requiring you to eat in restaurants continually. Think about it. DIY is overrated, anyway!

  5. My husband went on a retreat this past weekend, so I know what you mean by empowerment. I shocked my husband by bundling up the trash and bringing it to the road for pick-up--that's usually his job.

    Since he expressed a bit too much shock and implied that I had taken on a role belonging to his gender, I decided to take out the garbage again this morning. Again, shock.

    Sometimes it feels good to be a bit trashy...

  6. How does one "miss" a cab? Isn't that the point of cabs--they come when you call?!

    1. Before he went to sleep, Larry had arranged for a cab to show up at 4 AM. Unfortunately, he woke up at 4:35, with no time to waste waiting for another taxi.

  7. I'm so glad you were able to attend LTYM. I think that probably makes up for an early morning airport run, doesn't it?

    I'm not sure which is harder: having the husband home 24/7 or having him gone on a business trip.
