1. Make To Do list (excellent start)
2. Start supper (chicken in oven as I write)
3. Laundry (always a crowd-pleaser)
4. Write blog post (some progress here)
5. Write/edit current work in progress (who are we kidding?)
6. Order Homecoming corsages for boys as requested (already done! I am amazing!)
This is Spirit Week for the boys. "Spirit Week" refers to building school "spirit", and not, as
Meanwhile, I really feel that two teenage boys could have made more of an effort to
My offspring is nothing if not
After a moment of blank incomprehension - how could anyone not remember Daryl, Daryl and Daryl, (even if the show had been on the air nearly two decades before their birth?) How irritating! - Edward and Ken dutifully went upstairs to change into their oldest jeans and checkered shirts hanging open over thermal tees. They came down looking not one bit like Daryl, Daryl and Daryl, so I sent them back up. They returned still looking like their regular spiffy selves. I
This is the sort of thing with which I must constantly contend, yet I am the soul of equanimity. Some days, I do not know how I do it.
This morning, I found myself once again
Our local grocery store has apparently been taken over by lunatics! I arrived bright and early at 7:45 this morning to pick up a few staples for one of my world-famous casseroles, when I was rudely denied entry into the store! Sure, there was a sign outside saying "Re-opening at 8:00" and yes, the store had posted enormous banners, visible from the road 100 yards away, for weeks advising customers of an impending change of management involving two days closure for restocking, but I want to know why their housekeeping should cause so much inconvenience to
I hurried up and down the aisles in my usual
Nevertheless, In the produce section, things were in shocking disarray. I helpfully instructed the stock clerk on where to place things while cleverly demonstrating the flaws in the design of his orange pyramid. The resulting citrus tsunami was totally unnecessary, of course, had he built the display properly in the first place. Obviously, had I been in charge over there, none of this nonsense would have occurred!

At the checkout, yet another inconvenient glitch in the store's operations awaited me. Those in the Know can surely imagine my
The people at the store insisted on helping me out to my car with my bags, even though I only had two! This attentiveness to a valued customer is something that I hope they plan to continue! It may very well make up for their other shortcomings, although unless the deli samples are increased and the general disposition of the entire staff improves, I worry that it will be a long, difficult road ahead.
Good Day to All!
