Oh, Cruel Fate

Finally, a long weekend, and boy did I need it! Alas, I woke up with a cold on Sat. morning and didn't shake it all weekend. That was super-sad and cut into my puttering-around-in-the-garden time, replacing it with laying-around-watching-crappy-tv, which I do all the time anyway. I rallied, because I had a lovely visitor from DC - my good friend, N, and we had a Memorial Day party today. It rained (ARG!) but we all had a nice time indoors.

I guess the question is, why do I think the universe is going to make things go my way? It hardly ever does, and yet I get upset when I get sick on a long weekend. Got to work on that. What do you think, Barbara?

Sure hope you are feeling better now that's it's monday morning and time to go back to work. We worked in the yard almost all day monday and I (we) were beat late in the afternoon. I assume your garden is looking good also. Glad you had a nice visit with your friend from DC to lift you up from a dreary weekend.

Nobody is better at belting it out than Barbra.

File this under "Realizations of Attaining Adulthood". I'm sorry...I understand exactly how screwed it can feel to have your weekend leisure screwed up by lying around sick.

Isn't "Don't Rain on my Parade" the song that Annette Benning sang in her SUV in American Beauty? Or at least lip-synced? It was impressive, too.

I see--- she sang along with Barbara. I liked it. That might be one of my most favorite movies ever.

Oh, I imagine I might get around to attaining adulthood one of these years. Seems like I might have to cut back on my use of the "F" word, though, and cramps my style. (:
