I have so much to share Tapdpoles and I don't even know where to begin.
It's not that any of it's important - it's all basically b.s stuff happening in our pond now - but I always feel like this is one big coffee clatch, wine party, bar fest [take your pick - notice two involve alcohol tho'. giggle ]
It's as tho' I just want to catch you up on our week, month....year, because anything written going forward won't make much sense without the context of now. In turn I want to know what's going on in your worlds too.
Make sense? No? Well, when do I? ::wink::
Let me tell you the goofy thing I did last night. Goofy enough to result in a "DUH, that was STUPID Janine" type of wound. Laugh with me.
Steven and I went to a Tiki Bar party last night. It was at a friend's home, a friend I went to High School with and hadn't seen in over 30 years. It was nice to get the invite and as I don't get out much I spent a lot of time getting ready for the [very casual] party. Tack on at hour car ride each way and you might appreciate just how exhausted I was when we arrived home last night.
Fell into bed, faceplanted on my [beloved Vikings] pillow and BOOM! Skippy was out for the count. I didn't even take off my make up or my boots. Thankfully Steven thought to undress me and tuck me in. Yay for cool husbands. I am pretty sure he behaved himself, but who knows? I was exhausted. I could feasibly be pregnant with our 7th child and not realize it - that is how passed out I was. [TMI? Sorry...no, not really. giggle]
I woke up around 10:30 and here started the problem. I don't sleep in the MBR. Due to pain and illness we have found that it is better that I sleep in Emily's room. She is off at college but her furniture is still here. I normally get up every hour and sometimes the pain is so bad I am hopping around the room or simply crying into my pillows. But last night I woke up in the MBR. Thinking I was in Emily's room. I have no idea why Steven and I decided last night was a good night to toss me in the MBR bed, but hey! We did.
Not good. Not good at all. As I came to discover.
The MBR has a bath attached.. Emily's room doesn't. I have to walk out Em's door straight down the hall into the second bath. When I got out of bed and went looking for the door out of the room I thought I was in, [after much stumbling and groping of molding] I found the door. Except it was the door to the MBR bathroom. I was so out of it I didn't notice this door opened out, when I know Em's door opens in. I stumbled through the door and started to walk straight forward thinking I had 10 steps to get to the what I assumed was the second bathroom door.
Nope. I got about six steps and nailed the toilet with my shin. CRACK!
Pretty sure that was the point I woke up. Gawd. I felt so stupid. In my defense it was dark in that room. We are in a banana moon cycle - so no moonlight to light up our room - and it is DARK in the country Tadpoles. Damn is it dark out here.
So, after scavenging some clothes, I rocked the homeless look and I limped my way into the living room. I asked Steven "Just what the hell did you do to me?" [Always blame the husband if you can heehee] He smiled and said "What did you do this time J?" Oh nothing. Just one more wound to add to my list of stupid things I have done.
I got no sympathy - but a great looking bruise on my shin. Bones and porcelain are not friends. Not friends at all.
See what I mean about not knowing what to talk about or what to share? THIS is what I decide is a good blog fodder. Sigh.
I would like to point out [after reading this to myself - proofreading FTW!] there was no alcohol involved in this escapade. It sounds as though there was, but honestly? I was just bone tired. Sober and exhausted.
It probably would make a heckuva' lot more sense had I imbibed at the Tiki Bar party. :) And I have to give a big round of applause to my buddy Doug who threw the party - I haven't seen a bar that stocked since I was last in a bar. Wow! There was a lot of liquor at this party. I can only imagine what occurred after we left.
Well, that's all I got for a Monday morning. Hope y'all have a great week. School starts tomorrow and Evelyn and Tucker's birthdays are this week! YAY! Plus my brother in law's birthday and my in laws wedding anniversary. Yep, busy week.
I think I need to go back to bed. This time I going back to Emmy's room. I stand a better chance of finding my way out. heehee
See ya' on the flipside! Smile loudly - LIFE IS A GIFT!
Love and hugs, Janine
