Club 17, July

I didn’t forget. Really.  The internet simply did not want to cooperate tonight. We’ve been switching from pc to macs, and the transition has been… bumpy.  For some reason tonight we had 5 computers in our bedroom on.  At one point there were THREE laptops in my lap, trying to access internet.  Two of those swayed and swaggered their way closer to computer death.  The other three are new and better not even think of following suit for a long long time.

I got to take my big truck out tonight to ‘mud!’  How fun!!! It’s been raining a lot, which is a requirement, of course. But it’s a little TOO wet.  The puddles are too liquid-y.  The mud just splashes all over the place, and I prefer for it to rain down on me in giant clods.  Well. There’s always tomorrow.In case you were wondering, no. Of course I do not go mudding with my mother. J-Mom is very cool, but in a cautious, poised, elegant sort of way that does not involve reckless behavior.  Although she did DRIVE my big ol’ truck the other night. So cute!  

I used to strive for that same cautious, poised elegant thing she has going on.  Pfft.  Then I realized I am 1) a total klutz 2) weirdly drawn to the Reckless 3) am all about the adrenaline that accompanies lots of things that are simply not elegant. 

Book stuff:  Mmmm. No idea. As usual.  But thanks for asking!  Last I heard it was ‘at the printers.’   How long does that take?  No idea.  I didn’t want to ask.  So I didn’t.   I’m excellent with avoidance like that.  

Other stuff: We roadtripped to welcome my sister to the state, and to drop off J-Mom for awhile.  Met with old friends and I got all silly/social-anxiety-ish.  I do that.  But it was reeeeally great.  There was no reason to get all silly/social-anxiety-ish, but then again, there almost never is, but knowing this never ever manages to prevent it.To Whom It May Concern: Sorry. I haven’t checked email in ages.   

On with the show.  I went shopping at a way cute store for this month’s winner!  Darling little paper thingies tied up with pretty bows, and a bath thing that is too hard to explain, but i tried it today and loved it.  No. I didn’t try the one I’ll send the winner. Ew! I tried one that i’m keeping for me. So to be that lucky winner, just do your monthly self breast exam that of course you should be doing anyway.  Then you leave a comment on this post saying you did.  Done.  That easy.  Yay for you!  

I’ll check back in a few days and announce the winner. All questions can be answered here.  And also?  The really cute little button advertising Club 17 can also be found there.  If you’d like it, it’s yours.

*another technical glitch.  really, this evening could not have been complete without another one.  for some reason i can’t link to the post with all the answers and the buttons.  If you google holymama bse, it will come up first.  if you reeeeeally want it.

I did mine – but I’m curious what you think of the news this week AGAINST doing BSE?? I don’t know what to think.

Done! I had more to check this time. We’re 20 weeks pregnant now, and they just get bigger every week.

Boy. That was the most fun I’ve had all week. Needless to say, I could use some sort of thrill.

All done. We’re good.

Good luck with the Macs. Once you get them up and running you’ll be happy you have them. I love my Powerbook!

All done. And I’d have to say that with The Calm One overseas for the last four months, I know just what Shalee means! I’d say “I feel ya sista,” but I’m afraid that’d fall into the Bad Taste category. Either that or TMI category.
