Sorry I missed Mute Monday.
Just as well.
I find myself outraged by so many things these days it would be hard to choose the primary source!
Blowfish and I went away for a long birthday weekend. His, not mine. We went back up to Mermaid's location where spring is making a comeback ..... greener than green pastures, redbuds and dogwoods in bloom, massive tulips everywhere and smiles on most faces.
We had a great time.
Well except for the part about getting electrocuted in my hotel room.
The thing I found most interesting on this trip?
The HUGE amount of construction going on. Seems like every other place I have traveled to in the past year, the construction folks are not working. There we saw residential, commercial, retail, professional and recreational projects all under construction. It gave me some hope. Course I also read about a huge proposed project downtown where a grand new multi-use center was planned....seems they lost their primary investor who died without a will filed so this project is in limbo .... leaving a giant hole in the ground in the midst of the historic downtown district. Lots of letters to the editor about that!
I Probably saw more than the ususal amoount of real estate for sale but really restaurants, hotels, retail ... everybody was booming! I sure didn't see any souls around holding signs saying,
" will work for food".
So now I am back, trying to do the catching up at work, having a bit of trouble getting all my ducks to line up but it's the price you pay for going away!
Cruel man update:
the contractor and I made the trip to Chez Ugly the day before my little get away .... Mrs. was hopeful. Preacherman was cantankerous, argumentative and one time too many said,
" it is just ridiculous to spend money on fixing up a house for one foolish old woman on her way to the next place".
My mouth was too quick for my brain cause in a flash I was hearing my ownself say,
" Well preacherman, maybe it's about your salvation before you go to the next place"?
I knew when I heard it, I shouldnt have parted those lips .... then the sound of the Mrs. laughing spontaneously made me feel a whole lot better. I hope those stand up sons are still standing cause the preacherman was powerfully put out with his "boys interfering with his decision making".
