I am in full-blown deep-clean mode around here. Aunt Grace arrives on Thursday for a...brace yourselves...TWO WEEK visit. I mean, I adore Grace, and she's an excellent house guest, but two weeks is a damned long time for anybody. Anyway, I've been doing my usual pre-Grace deep-clean. If today I can deal with all the closets and tomorrow I shampoo the carpets, then we should be in pretty good shape by Thursday. Wish me luck.
You know, I'm usually pretty enthusiastically open-minded when it comes to the whole flavored vodka thing. I've enjoyed Sweet Tea vodka, Vanilla vodka, Citron vodka, Cherry vodka, Blood Orange vodka, Pear vodka, even Berri Acai vodka. But the thought of this one made me gag a little...
That's right, Peanut Butter & Jelly flavored vodka. How could anybody think this might be tasty? What am I missing?
This is Jude and my new favorite website - Draw a Stickman. It's SO fun. Both of us keep playing it over and over. Silly fun and addicting. Consider yourself warned.
On Saturday, Jude dragged me to see Wreck It Ralph. The theater was so crowded that we couldn't get two seats together, which to me was a deal-breaker, but he just looked at me nonchalantly and said "I don't have to sit with you, I can sit by myself." Well, la-dee-dah! So he sat in one row, and I sat about 8 rows behind him. No problemo. And as I was sitting there, surrounded by OTHER people's children, watching a movie I truly had no interest in seeing (okay, it wasn't the worst movie I've seen, it wasn't Space Chimps or the stupid Lorax or any of those dreaded Chipmunk movies - I mean those all made me want to stick forks in my eyes), it suddenly occurred to me that we are aaaaaaalmost there. Almost to the point where I can take Jude and a buddy to the movies and DROP THEM OFF. Just leave them there and go shopping or even, gasp, watch a movie I WANT TO SEE. It was a little shocking, and so exciting that it got me through Wreck It Ralph without throttling the little boy with the runny nose in the seat next to me who was whining throughout the movie.
Proof that I have officially become my mother. This commercial made me actually sob...
What can I say?
That's it for today. Visit Stacy and the other randomers.
