Not the Original Material Girl…

We were out of town, visiting Kim-12yr. It was our first visit, and we weren’t sure we were even all going to get to go, due to a last minute virus thing. It was gross. I won’t add any more details (really, Carol! I won’t!).

I tried to ‘autopost’ stuff while i was gone, then decided against it. It’s not like i’m Madonna in the 80s. I’m just me and it’s just a blog.  Yeah, so whatever. The real truth is i DID try to autopost and then i messed it up, and THEN i decided to remind myself I’m not Madonna in the 80s. But ew. Really, who would want to be, anyway?

It was a good visit, lots of intense family therapy. I thought I was fine, and then I fell apart and CRIED after I got a speeding ticket (yeah, another one) on the way home today. Yes. I cried. How silly.  I think the previous days must have been a little more stressful than I thought, and it all caught up with me right then.

Oh so tired. Too bad I’m not more crafty. I could make a really pointy Madonna Bra out of cone shaped party hats. But I"m not crafty, and I’m so tired that I think that’s actually really funny. I suspect it’s not… and I wish Vogue weren’t stuck in my head just now…

The Madonna bra comment is leaving me with quite the visual. Probably best you’re not crafty!

Glad to hear you saw Kim. Still praying!

Hey, glad the visit was good! Hard is good sometimes and I’d cry too about a speeding ticket…even on a good, unstressful day! =)

The madonna bra would have made a really good graphic for this post. You can still add it in!!! lol You’d have to do an 80′s hairdo and really dark eye makeup too for the full effect. I think it is hilarious….but then “I’m kinda weirrrrrd….” *said in Willy Wonka voice*

Thank you for the restraint. My eyes could not take it.

Trust me there are worse things to have stuck in your head. I spent six months singing and humming “Jingle Bells” and it was spring and summer. Now I just occasionaly break out into the “ABC’s” song. Did you know it has the same tune as “Twinkle, Twinkle”?

Gaaaah!!!!! I have ot find a new song.

BTW still prayingl
God bless

You know, I hadn’t thought about those pointy bras in a long time. At the time I was flat as a board fence, so I didn’t think to much about it. But now that I’ve nursed four babies and am a little more, ahem, substantial, I’m thinking…OUCH! Wouldn’t those pointy bras HURT? Like a constant mammogram, or something?

I have been wondering if you made the trip. The little one’s must be feeling better. Continuing to pray…!

I cried last time I got a ticket… and nothing was happening in my life, except getting a ticket! Pathetic on my part!

Wow, I am so impressed that you can be funny even with lots of stress, little sleep, and a speeding ticket!
Hope the visit will seem worthwhile, in retrospect.

I got a speeding ticket a couple weeks ago and though I’m not a crying type, I cried IN FRONT OF the police officer! And I didn’t have the excuses you did!

(But I was so frustrated because it was on MY STREET, no less–and I was only going 38 in a 25, like I’ve probably been doing ever since we moved in 10 years ago…Aaaarrrrgggghhh!!!!)

Glad you got to go visit. Welcome back!

Glad the visit and therapy was fruitful. Sometimes, you just need a good cry!

Still praying for your family. The eighties was a time when we were on a major media type fast so I don’t have too much of a visual to go with Madonna or her clothing. I’m gathering that that is a good thing!

Thank you for the lack of virulent details. Sorry ’bout your ticket. Glad the therapy session went well. I’d be interested in seeing that party hat bra. But not Madonna. Ever.
