Monday Musings

Okay ... First, I want to apologize to all my blogging friends... I have not gone to hardly anyone's blog for about three days. Actually, I made it on a few times, only to be called away by either Hunter, my husband, or my parents. I feel like I'm being torn into 20 pieces! I MISS MY BLOGGING FRIENDS!!! Also, sorry to post so late!

Now, just a few quick things. I had a lovely Easter with my family. We had leg of lamb (yeah, I like it okay, but I'd only eat it once a year ... for my parent's sakes!), yuuuuummmmy shitake mushroom and spinach bread pudding (fancy name for stuffing - mmmmmm!), asparagus, new potatoes, broccoli slaw, and tres leches for dessert. What did y'all have?

Then... I just wanted to share my most embarrassing, disgusting, horrific experience that I've ever had ... and quickly, because I'm sure I'll forget about it soon (hehehehe! On Purpose!) ... So, I arrived at church on Sunday, and ran through my song, and then sat down for Sunday School. My dear and kind (yet very honest) husband came and sat next to me. I very demurely crossed my ankles and placed my hands on my lap (read: crossed my legs and plopped my hands down). When my eyes glanced down on my lovely aqua/white/yellow striped linen skirt and saw a stain. A yellow stain. A yellow PEE stain from my sweet and adorable Maltese (read: She's gonna be served up for dinner this weekend). Yeah. Lovely, huh? Evidently, in an effort to actually look good for Easter, I tossed our clothing to be taken to the dry cleaners in a pile on the floor by the front door (so I wouldn't forget it) ... and my adorable pup took that as a sign to "mark the spot ... right here ... on mommy's skirt" GRRRRR! And just so you know... it doesn't come out when it's dry cleaned. You have to wash it in running water for that to come out!

And I hadn't gotten up in front of the church to sing yet... not that there was anything I could do about it... fortunately, there were yellow stripes in the skirt, so ... it was a bit camouflaged. Needless to say, the skirt was torn off the second I got home, and a second shower was in order for the day!

How embarrassing.

So, what did YOU wear for Easter?

Finally ... I thought I'd just toss this out ... how would you like it if I posted a few pictures of our family on Wed or Thurs??? I'd only leave that post up for a few days, though ... just long enough for you to burn your retinas when you look at my picture.

Don't worry... my son is so adorable, you won't want to look at anyone else.

So what do you think?

Oooh, oooooh, ooooh! I get to be the first comment. I thought you had flown the coop today, but I'm so glad you're still on the planet. Soooooo sorry about the skirt. How mortifying!

Our Easter was lovely, as you'll find on my blog and my 2 daughters' blogs. There's even a picture of me there.

I'd love to see pictures of you and yours. I'll be reading from Omaha (going to visit an aunt) later this week, so I will be eagerly checking the laptop to find your mug shots.

We Want Pictures...lots and lots of pictures....

Bring it!

Frankly I think my "coffee incident" rivals your "dog urine incident", but then that's what makes life fun!

Don't you wonder if people were thinking:

"What's that on her skirt? It looks a bit like urine? Did you know GiBee had this problem?"

Shalee said...

I'm thinking dog soup should be on the menu...

Well, since we had such a hectic weekend, Easter wasn't as celebrated and cherished as it should have been. We had guests from the night before, and she requested no bunny baskets because she didn't want to lug all of her stuff down. I really felt like this glorious day passed me by due to tiredness and overactivity. That will change next year!

Oh and we had Chinese food. Very good but definitely not Easter-esque.

Definitely want pictures! It would be nice to know to whom I am actually going to throw things.

Heth said...

You guys do Easter dinner fancy style don't you? Wow, what a menu! Yum!

Chilihead2 said...

Well, I LOVE to see people's pictures but I never ask b/c I never take off my groucho glasses. But if you're offerin' I'm sayin' bring it!

Can't wait to see the pix! Bring 'em on. LOVE the story. You always make me smile!

Perri said...

Looking forward to the pictures!

Peach said...

Would love, love, love to see photos!

So glad to see you had a good day in spite of the doggy present. Now, you can let him go out and play in DC traffic ; ) No, really . . . I'm not that cruel.

Bring on the pics., we'll wear shades to brace ourselves for your loveliness!

GiBee said...

Okay ... you asked for it, so I'll start working on a pic post asap.

Ever have that picture where you just can't hide your double (or in some cases -- tripple) chin?

Yeah, well ... prepare yourselves!

Make sure you have plenty of clear space to run ... screaming, if you must ... from the computer, saying... "MY EYES! MY EYES!"

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Post away my pee-stained friend!

:) I'd love to see your photos...and by the way--I'm sure you were the ONLY one who noticed on Sunday! I once had a presentation to make at a Christian School Banquet--had a horrible migraine that evening---but had to go. So I slept through the afternoon, woke up an hour before the presentation, showered, got ready...and put on my suit. When I walked up to the podium and looked out at the standing room only audience...I noticed something strange as I opened my notes (to give the most outstanding speech ever!). My shoes didn't match! Yes, in the pain of my migraine, I had put on one blue pump and one grey pump! Needless to say--the speech was drastically shortened!
