J-Mom and her Significant Other left. (she refuses to call him her ‘boyfriend’ since he’s in his sixties. whatever.)

I didn’t expect to completely ADORE this Significant Other quite as much as I do. Nice surprise.

Capstone contacted me. Not sure if I should go for it.  I’m thinking that since they contacted ME, they are probably quite desperate, and that can’t be a good sign. Perhaps this is pessimistic and unfair, but it was still one of my first thoughts. Duly reported.

To be truthful, i’ve really put the novels waaaaay on the back burner. (And that analogy kinda implies that the front burners see more use than those in the back, and that would be misleading since i’m all about avoiding all burners.)

New threat for my children: "Stop it, or you’ll be the one washing out the next sippy cup with chunks."  Then again, maybe that won’t work with these particular children.

Currently Reading:

Blink by Malcolm Gladwell

Animals in Translation by Temple Grandin

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy with Trauma Survivors by Dr. Susan Johnson

Yes. all at once, and I’d recommend any of the above alone, but not this particular combination. (It’s probably time to quit making fun of HolySister’s boring book list.)

WISH i were reading Chocolate Beach, by Julie Carobini.

I LOVE the ribbed short sleeve shirts here. I keep going back for more of them, because they are really comfortable and they don’t fit you in a way that screams "I’m a Big Hooch" the way a lot of shirts do when you think you’re getting a slightly ‘shaped’ fit and then it’s WHOAH. That’s a little too much of my… shape… showing. Ew.  I hate that.  These aren’t like that. I have ‘hope’, ‘grateful,’ and ‘forgiven.’ Yeah. they succinctly sum me up and don’t make me look slutty while doing it. nice.

One of the most fantastic things ever when shopping with my mom is when i try something on and it’s all Hooch Mommy on me, i can ask her if it’s too small and she always says the same thing. I love it. It cracks me up completely. She diplomatically says, "Well… that depends on the sort of look you’re going for."  That particular Mom Gem has been in her Bag of Trusty Phrases for years now, and it’s one of my faves. 

Perhaps i’m focusing on clothes that don’t fit because i’m needing to lose a pound or two. Yes. Perhaps.

I left a really stupid voicemail for Jeana today. I didn’t mean it to be stupid, which made it so much worse. The thing beeped for me to start talking, and I said something that started with an H sound, but then I strangely got confused and repeated it twice more, before breaking into giggles. She was calling me on the other line and the ‘start talking now’ beep and the call waiting beep were going on at the same time and totally throwing me off my Message Leaving Game. the result was something like "Huh…. huh…. huh… HEE HEEEEEEEEE  HEEE!" 


Classy gal I am.

Oooh. Those t-shirts are tempting. I’m thinking a couple camis, a couple baby rib t-shirts…maybe hope, grace, mercy, faith….hmmmm.

I love what your mom says about hoochy clothes. It’s like it’s subtle…except that it’s not. Love it!

Oh, and your voicemail for Jeana? I am SO glad to hear that because I don’t feel so bad about being such a terrible message leaver now. I usually try to sound cheerful and end up just sounding schizophrenic instead. It always helps to know you’re not the only person who leaves bad messages now and then…or something like that.

It is my personal goal to use the word “hoochy” today.

Nice voicemail message!! LOL. Love those shirts, but can’t buy one. Since I’ve made my “compact pledge” is seems everyone is throwing all these awesome links around! It’s the devil. It’s gotta be. LOL.

You know what message I didn’t see? Chosen to submit. (That’s the one my daughters want. LOL. The men’s program our church did last year was called Chosen to Lead.)

The novel thing could be very … novel *?*? Exciting. Yeah, that’s what I meant. But first, I have tagged you for a meme. Don’t worry, it’s an easy one. :)

I’m going to just assume that if I got the “blessed” shirt, everyone would know that it would have no relation to my chest size, right?

And don’t worry about sounding stupid with Jeana. She’s probably use to it by now with me.
Yep, I’m all about easing the path for my friends.

OK, so you duly reported your first thought about Capstone, now why don’t you call them back and see what they wanted???? Just think very carefully about what you’re saying before you leave a message! LOL

You get on that phone and call Capstone right now, missy! If you don’t I’m going to call and pretend I’m you. And if I get their voicemail I’m going to say, “HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.”

Oooh, Capstone called you–so cool! Although I’m not aware of all they do, Ramona Tucker has a good rep, I believe. Call and see!
