Fuckin' Eh!

Please excuse the interruption in our regularly scheduled broadcast.
We have stairs going in.
I have a weekend trip coming up.
We are *gasp* dating again-each other(you guys!) *snicker*
I am trying to keep up with the laundry.
We are flying to San Fransisco for a weekend getaway really soon.
I have been busy as fuck.
Trying to live my life here(IRL)
Trying to build/maintain new blogverse friends.
Balance is key.
I am not a good juggler.
I'm trying.
I'm here.
I am.
I AM.
Wonderful...marvelous, magnificent and more.
Awww shit who am I kidding?
I am me and me is tired.
Relationships are hard work.
I'm not tired of working.
Just tired.
To top it all off tomorrow-just 33 minutes away-the Kid has to take a bike(which she can't ride), a helmet(which she doesn't like wearing) and drinks and snacks for 13 kids to preschool.
They are there only 4 hours.
They get snack and lunch.
My kind of people now that I think about it.
Anyway. I copped out.
Apple juice boxes and graham crackers.
And Big Daddy D is the delivery boy.
Wee Hoo.
I'm gonna be planting the flower boxes.
WEEEEEEEEEHOOOOOOOOOOO!
Catch ya later taters....

WHAT??? No home-ade cupcakes and whatnot??? I'm so disappointed. hahahaha. NO-really-graham crackers and apple juice sound pretty tasty.
have fun IRL...

The CEO said...

I am soooooooo happy for you. Do you like hard shell crabs? Meeting new people IRL, sounds interesting.
Perhaps a lecture in Bayesian statistics? Or database theory?

Brook said...

Amy-my friend-I miss you the most.
No homemade cupcakes, cookies or muffins(all of which I thought about)and the juice is Juicy Juice-I copped out big time. But yeah-I figure the kids'll like it and nothing will stain-too bad.
And fun? Most of the time it's okay. I had been spending alot of time escaping into the internet instead of experiencing the life that is right here around me. It's often not as fun or witty as hanging out with you and the girls online. I am still searching for balance. I don't feel like I'm on a tightrope that is stretched across a chasm or anything that dramatic-more like I am trying to carry an armload of clothes from the dryer to the couch and keep dropping something. You know what I mean? In the meantime I/we will be passing through your neck of the woods in July/August-wanna visit?

CEO-I am working on being happy. I love crabs-any kind that can be eaten. I am not meeting any new people IRL(here I mean)actually I am losing a friend and neighbor soon-not losing exactly but they are moving to Charleston-kinda far to drop in for a neighborly visit. I am not wanting any lectures! You are so silly-I like you. See you this weekend.

A weekend in San Fransisco...you'll love it!!!! We just got back not too long ago, and I highly recommend it! :-) :-)

I had a dream about you last night. For real. You came to my house, driving a pale blue Porsche. I kid you not. We had mimosas for breakfast, but the storm that whipped through here this morning woke me up before I could see what we did the rest of the day. :-) :-)

Juggling is hard. I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to do the same thing. Work, home, quartet, friends, family, hobbies. Juggling is hard sh*t! :-)

But darn it, consider yourself lucky...you HAVE family, friends (IRL and blogverse), and a washing machine for that laundry. Some people would kill for such luxuries. :-) :-) :-)

Signed,
Silver Lining from Omaha, NE :-)

(my word verification word today is "beach")

Brook said...

Nej-A light blue porsche? Really? And mimosas-the rest of the day would have shaped up nicely from the sound of it-darn storm.
Juggling is a good word. All these things are in orbit and you have to reach out/respond at just the right time to keep it all going. Yep.
And I know I am lucky. We are all so spoiled here in the States and well trained to be never satisfied. I would love to be rid of that conditioning and learn instead to be happy and content as I go about each day.

San Fransisco-YES! It will be very fun-we have a room supposedly right beside Fisherman's Wharf. and I will finally see the sun set over the Pacific. One more thing on my list. Can't wait!

"I love crabs-any kind that can be eaten. "

Oh damn that is funny!

Hang in there, sounds like you are having more fun than you realize.

I'm off to dig in the dirt myself, hope to get at least half the garden in this morning. I am WAAAYYY behind this year.

I've always wanted to visit SF, very jealous. Dinah's been I have not. Tell me about the clam chowder in the sourdough bread bowl.

Dating your spouse is the best!

Nej said...

In what hotel are you staying??? We stayed right on the Wharf for two nights as well. :-) :-) :-)

If you like seafood, go to...oh heck, now I'm going to have to go back to my post to remember the name of the place. It was delish!!!! Started with an S....

Brook said...

Huff Daddy-you caught that huh? I'm so glad someone did!
No garden for me this year-just tomatoes herbs and flower boxes. It'll be enough.
Strangely enough I am having a lot of fun. It's a little surprising really.
Dating Big Daddy D has been fun. I think he likes me ;)
I'll let you about San Fransisco. And sourdough.

Brook said...

Nej-I think the Radisson. I think. The cable cars and Alcatraz are right there, 1 mile from Chinatown. 4 nights. I need to reread your blog.

Amy said...

I miss you too! I have had the same issue. I have been sitting in front of this box WAY too much for WAY too long now. I have resolved to do better balancing. Logan is watching Backyardagainagainss and it is too easy to sit here and escape reality. I must enter BB rehab ASAP.
You know I would love to visit with real life you. I fear that real life Amy isn't quite as fun as computer Amy..tougher to edit... :) However, I do love to laugh and I have been accused of being sweet-so we would have a good time.
You ever had a tequila shot chased by Mountain Dew, BTW??? Not sure where that came from.....

Nej said...

Alcatraz rocked! We didn't do the cable cars...but they are all over the place. Chinatown was good...were only there for a few hours though. Haight and Ashbury area was awesome!!! We were actually only in SF for a couple days, so it was a whirlwind tour. :-) Must have the clam chowder and sourdough if thats' your thing...the name of the place is in my post I'm sure. Starts with a B. I'm having issues today with my brain, and the names of places. :-) :-) :-)

Huff Daddy said...

Tomatoes and herbs does make a garden, silly. I'll see how I can help you out. :) I might have been a little over ambitious this year. But then I always plant with the idea of giving away rather than eating.

Any time we can get someone to watch Rose, we go on a date, doesn't happen that often but boy do we take advantage of it. Dinah's favorite MO is shop for clothes, dinner and a movie.

Am jealous of your trip. I think I could get lost in Chinatown and never come out. :)

ginstonic said...

I am not jealous of San Fran - can't stand the smell, but sunset over the Pacific - well I am all about that. Mother's day night K-man took me to the beach for moonrise (9:40 PM, 99% full)and ice cream. It was wonderful. And yes I too have found myself spending to much time online, but I sooooo enjoy reading your blog. C'est la vie.
Love ya, mom

LiLu said...

I am NOT a tater.

I am a carrot.

Have a blast!!!

Brook said...

Amy-never had tequila with mountain dew chaser.

HD-we can meet in the middle after my hands recover from silly me not wearing gloves. OUCH!

Mom-I love reading my blog too(the comments of course)

LOE-well Carrot...we'll have a great time I'm sure. How far is SD from SF anyway?

Nej said...

Tequila and mountain dew chaser? Now I'm curious!!! Those are two most cherished liquids. :-) :-)

Amy said...

I just had a memory of being ooohhh 17ish and drinking shots with my 14ish brother and his cute 15ish friend. The M'Dew is lemony and taste really good after a tequila shot. Just sayin. Havent had Tequila/Dew since-had too many that night. Made out w/ brothers's friend after brother passed out. Jiminy Cricket i was a wild thing. Oh-and i would always eat the worm.

Brook said...

Nej and Amy-I like Dr Pepper and rum sometimes.
I like Mello Yello better than Mountain Dew.
So teguila and my or md would be like a deconstructed kamikaze or margarita it seems.
Amy-listen at you-making out with a younger man! I have never eaten the worm. Believe it or not I was never a hearty partyer til much later in life...like now...heheehehe

Amy said...

Now that you mentioned it-i think maybe it WAS Mello Yello-do they still make ?? I know...I had a thing for younger men till I was 19 and met Tony who was 30. We have been together since then-21 years-wow. I'll have to try the Dr P& rum-Dr P is the bomb.

WanderingGirl said...

Well, I guess that explains your suspicious Facebook absence! I thought you were dead for a few days!

Brook said...

Amy-they call me mello yello-that's right. talk about a 180 degree turn.

WG-just trying to lesson my distractions and focus a bit more on what is happening on the other side of the laptop.

Spellbound said...

I have discovered this week that I cannot blog, work, get ready for a party, exercise, and fly uselessly about the country on fool's errands. Blogging has taken a back seat, but you are going to have wonderful food and a reasonable clean house to visit. I think we're staying in Friday night so someone will be here if you decide to drive down then. Can't wait!!!

ginstonic said...

K-man still finds Squirt. He takes it to the track, kind of a byo-mixer. Don't know about mello yello, but it was my fav - never liked Sprite.

ginstonic said...

O,yeah, I can vouch for the "not much of a partier" when younger. You did have the occassional bottle of Martini & Ross Asti Spumanti at some of my parties. The whole bottle, but you could always hold your liquor - uh champagne. I was going to ask what happenned, but China is probably the answer, as much as anything.

Brook said...

Spellbound-life has a funny way of getting in the way. See ya Saturday!
Mom-Mello Yello and Keen Carpet. And those were the days-you had the best parties! And I think China did indeed mold me into a semi partier.
