You know what brings me a bit of pleasure? When I click over to another blog and it hasn't been updated in long time. Ah-ha! I think, I'm not the only one.

I've been working. That went somewhat poorly.

I've been having friends over. I like the ones that want to sit outside and bring chicken.

The girls went back to school and I'm on the board of the PTA. Madam Secretary. I've also volunteered to chair the MathBlasters fundraiser. Raise your hand if you just spewed coffee out of your nose?

Tomorrow the girls audition for another local childrens' theater production. My mouth, my wallet and my sense of well-being all just collectively tensed up. I can't wait to take a clandestine photo of the board president and all the unbelievably bitchy things she does. During the Ramona production she "bipped" my youngest atop her precious head and I was able to hold my tongue. She also used the phrase "it's not rocket science, ladies" as I assembled the cast photos onto the bulletin board. Oh, Ms. President- i'mma gonna get on your good side. And refill my prescriptions.

Erik returned from burning man with all of my possessions: my bike, my vintage cooler, my hula hoop...what else did he take? Erik is fond of saying two phrases when it comes to spending money:

1) Buy the best and you'll never be disappointed.

2) It would be a bargain at twice the price.

Burning man however, cost more than 3 times what he had estimated. He's glad he went, but he's not ready to commit to next year. But he was going to turn 40...someday.
