update: Evidently I’m not the only one affected by vacation. WordPress is acting mighty strange too. It choked and combined 2 separate posts, even putting the comments together. I’ve forgiven WordPress and even covered its tracks by digging up both posts from the revision records. Now, even more disjointed than before. Enjoy.
Vacation was fun, but I’ve decided to a make a comeback. It works for TV celebrities, right? Except the ones who are pegged as has-beens.
So here I am. I came back from vacation. That makes it a comeback, right? Now I’ve got to think of something to blog about, or else get a contract to star in a new movie. But I’m thinking I make a better blogger than a movie star, which is part of the reason we didn’t follow up on the inquiries we have received in the past year from Wife Swap, MTV, CBS News, or the local news station that I can’t remember at the moment.
Really, we received inquiries from all of the above and probably more. If we had received one from Extreme Home Makeover we would have jumped on it, because we already have an extreme view from our deck, so we’re halfway there. Hubby would love to have a 3,000 square foot gameroom and a master bedroom suite with a shower that you could lost in, and the kids would love 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and a pool, and as for me – well, baseboards would be nice. I’m easy to please.
Wow. Vacation is not good for increasing the attention span, is it? It probably doesn’t help that I got back on caffeine over the past week and am now 2 days into quitting cold turkey, mostly because I forgot that I had been drinking real coffee all week. My head hurts. And you may have noticed that I’m not quite myself. I do like to think that I’m usually more coherent than this post. Please just nod in agreement and send your condolences.
Maybe this will help my frame of mind. At least it makes me forget the headache:
We used to have an aquarium with a variety of freshwater fish. They varied from one week to the next, depending upon who had eaten whose eyeballs and fins. Maybe it wasn’t an entirely peaceful existence for the fish themselves, but I used to love to sit and watch them.
Since daddy longlegs like to congregate behind fish tanks and other sources of moisture here in south Texas, we won’t be setting up an aquarium anytime soon. It wouldn’t be so bad if they had small congregations like our church, but these daddy longlegs seem to prefer mega-churches.
So I’ll settle for low-moisture setups like this one. If you like it, you can set up one of your own. I highly recommend it.
