Disappearing GR

Hey, so I kind of disappeared again there, didn't I? It's that time of year where I'm busy at work, busy at home, and just plain busy.

This weekend one of my very best friends (and the last of my bridesmaids) got married. Diva was her flower girl and I was one of her personal attendants. And it poured rain for the better part of the day. Thank GOD I had a huge golf umbrella to transport girls with fancy hair from the vehicle to the church completely unscathed! Diva looked like royalty, as did the bride. It was such a hurried day, and before I knew it, I was sufficiently pissed off at CB (he will not dance. Ever. I threatened bodily harm at our wedding if he didn't dance. Evidently I need to do this at every dancing opportunity.) and the day was over.

Sunday I was exhausted, but we still managed to get to my mom's house and get the children back from her. Then I napped.

Today I'm having lunch with my favorite cousin and then watching the finale of America's Got Talent. Because the guy with the puppets is related to someone that goes to my church. And holy Hannah, he's MEGA talented. If he doesn't win this thing, my lack of faith in the American voting society will be cemented. Because, seriously, anyone can sing. And there's another ridiculous show for that. You three AGT singers will probably get recording contracts anyway, so why not give the $1 million to the guy who really IS the most talented? There, I've plead my case.

This weekend CJ will be turning 8 years old. We're having a Dirty Jobs themed party, complete with slime cake (a la the Nickelodeon Magazine commercials of the early 90's) and swamp sludge punch. I'm excited because I'm a big old nerd who would plan parties professionally if there were a market for it out here!

So I promise I'll get back to all of your blogs again this week. I just can't promise that posting will be anymore than sporadic until school starts.

What a great party theme!!

Actually, there IS a market for party planning. :) Could be something to look into! My son loves the Dirty Jobs show too... I can't watch it without getting slighty queezy. Blah. As for the dancing... my husband DISCOS Seriously. He's only 35 and the man can disco like nobodies business. It's terrifying, really.

My hubby won't dance either. Even at our wedding he didn't dance. which was kind of okay, because I'm a bit shy. however, we've been to things in the past and he won't put so much as a big toe on the dance floor.

sometimes I think he's embarrassed of me, because I can shake it, but I don't always know what to shake!!!

It's a busy time of year and we all know that.
My hubby and I dance, but it's pretty rare and he prefers it if I've had a few.
What's that all about? LOL.

I have two left feet. I cant dance for the life of me. Although I really want to….but I just cant.

Oh, I'm so glad I didn't miss anything during MY absence!! The Dirty Jobs party sounds awesome and I totally feel your pain when it comes to the lack of a job market for specialized service-type jobs in rural areas. Other than custom combine washing or hoof trimming!

You sound as busy as me! ;)
