This-n-That Thursday

What a week this is turning out to be:
  • Said "hello" to my daughter and then "goodbye" 5 hours later.
  • Both children depart for school the same day.
  • Experienced a bad case of the empty nest blues on Monday.
  • Son resumes school-year selective texting-answers-to-mom technique.
  • Survived the Earthquake of August 23!
  • Ridiculed by Virginia-based daughter for all the "earthquake drama."
  • Empty nest blues miraculously lift.
  • Attention turns to Hurricane Irene and this "cone of uncertainty" business.
  • Have begun to lay in supplies: Pre washed salad, avocado, wine, cottage cheese, vodka, broccoli, olives, tweezers.
  • Thinking about maybe getting some batteries and water, but is afraid of being accused of exhibiting signs of "hurricane drama" and setting self up for more ridicule.
  • How're things by you?

Love all the natural disaster drama going on, haha! I also love your shopping list.

Daryl said...

I am sure we will survive this impending storm .. likely because we're primed it will pass without any one noticing except all those crack meteorologists

If you bring bread & milk you can come stay with us ...

Camellia said...

never waste a good opportunity for climate drama, including updates 24/7. Did you lay in enough wine? We'll come and watch with you.

LL Cool Joe said...

Vodka! Glad you have your priorities right! :D What about chocolate?

Reena said...

Hurricane Parties .... they're the best! I survived Hurricane Andrew (1992) in Key West ... now that was a storm!!!

Sally said...

You'll definitely need more alcohol.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Wine, vodka and olives? I'm on my way. Hold the tweezers.

Debbie said...

I laughed out loud on this one, but also wanted to give you a big hug at the same time!!

What a damn week.

Ya'll ALL stay safe okay? ♥

I lived in hurricane country for 2 1/2 years. Ain't no such thing as hurricane drama! ALWAYS be prepared. Each one can be devastating! Stay safe.

I dont know who Shauna is, but she does not look comfortable on that bicycle...I would think that having the young uns out of the house would allow you to do the things you really want to do...but I would not know I dont have kids....I was at work when the Va Earthquake happened and damned if we didnt start talking story about California quakes...but its the weirdest thing that we had a EQ here in the mid lant....great blog...zman sends
