“Oh, there you are.” That’s what I used to say when I was working for the scientist at NYU and I would take an extra long lunch. Occasionally, I would go home to watch Law & Order and nap. Usually, he was out of town or in a meeting when I did this, but if it happened on a day when he was in, he might start nosing around. So if I thought he’d been looking for me, I’d beat him to the “where have you been?” and act like I had been looking for him. Egads – I am so dumb. The man was a leading AIDS researcher with an MD PhD from Ivy league schools – no doubt I wasn’t fooling him. But it threw him off a bit (or at least my 25 year old self thought so) and he was smart enough to realize that my hour and a half lunch wasn’t such a big deal. He was curing cancer AND AIDS, after all.
So, I’ve been gone a while, dear reader. But not because I’ve been napping (oh how I wish). Quite the contrary. I’ve been getting stuff done! Cleanin’, organizin’, I put together a fall festival at our school! Then there were the holidays and many, many illnesses (flu, stomach, strep – WOOHOO!). So I am back! Let’s have some fun!
There is so much about to happen! Carter is turning 6 and his birthday theme has me totally flummoxed! I’ve been busy decoupaging with comic books and the results are AWESOME! I’ve got a ton of sewing that I’m starting/finishing! AND (drum roll) we are going to Disney in less than two months!!!! So much to talk about!!!! I know you are on the edge of your virtual seats.
