And I wonder where she gets it from, huh?
|My neighbor hired one of these. I love her.|
Are we seeing a pattern here? I think so. It is called, "Larry makes a mess and then I clean it up." I am not sure whether or not that is a healthy marriage dynamic, but that's what we've got.
I also made it to the pool 3 times with Susie myself, so I'm not being a slacker. I make myself swim 8 laps (1/4 mile) each time we go, because I like to imagine that doing the breast stroke is going to tone my upper arms. We all have our dreams, you know.
Brian was forced to do Algebra and end-of-year standardized testing and extra dishes and laundry (see missing siblings, above), so he is extremely eager to escape tomorrow for the relative ease of Boy Scout camp.
And, of course, like most of you, I wasted a goodly amount of time on the Internet, reading Supreme Court opinions and enjoying silly memes involving - among other things - Obama holding a bald eagle and knocking on your door and saying...well, just look it up yourselves - this is a G-rated blog, after all. It was a fun Internet week, is all I'm saying, okay?
|A job? For ME?!|
Oh, and yesterday I had an honest-to-God interview for an editing job. Unfortunately, I won't know until December or January if I actually get the position, so it's a good thing we're not starving, I guess. I was just so excited - after 2 years of sending my resume out into the ethernet, as it were, and receiving nary a response - to finally receive a response. I felt like Tinkerbell in Peter Pan - you know, when she revives because everyone claps to show her that they believe in fairies?
Come to think of it, judging from the pictures and excited Facebook comments yesterday, all my gay-married* friends felt that way, too...and all because 5 Justices clapped for them. But, truly, that number should have been 6, Mr. Chief Justice - now what am I supposed to do with that Team Roberts T-shirt I bought on Thursday?
|Where is everyone getting all the pretty colored lights, anyway?|
*No longer a valid phrase, I KNOW
