* hello? is this blog thing still working? hello? …

Posted on May 31st, 2010 by melinda in Another day in the life of me.

Hi, have we met?  I use to blog here on a daily basis, sometimes more than once a day.  Not so much as of late, I’ve been remiss in my blogger duties.  But alas … I’m back!  I’ve missed you.

For the moment, let me just give you a quick update on my whereabouts, because I know y’all were about to call 911 or something and report me missing in action. 

First of all, Happy Memorial Day!  Thank you to all of our Veterans and current military men and women.  If you haven’t seen the Coming Home series of photo’s over on PW’s blog, they will move your heart, go look at them. 

Secondly, last weekend was prom.  Yes, I thought we were finished with prom last year, but I was incorrect.  Just in case you didn’t know, my younger daughter, Anna, is dating my bff Cathy’s son, Christopher.  Christopher is still in high school and invited Anna to prom.  They looked absolutely stunning!  Hold on, I’ll show you …


Oh wait … wrong picture, sorry.  Let me try that again! Just don’t ask what they were doing, it’s best not to try to figure the two of them out.  It’s a waste of time really, they have their own fashion rules that no one will ever understand except for the two of them.

Much better, see, I told you so.  Of course, I may be the tiniest bit partial.  I have a ton of prom pictures to post now that you are all prom pictured out.  I hope to get some of them ready to post later tonight.  Right now, I’m doing laundry, which we will get back to shortly.

Prom weekend was quite the tadoo around the ole hacienda.  Thad, Brad and most importantly Emma Joy came home for a visit.  She is growing up so quickly it makes my head spin. 

Her vocabulary is vast and her facial expressions absolutely crack me up.  I need to ask Thad to video her telling the story of Bapa’s mean ole cat!!!

After the whole devil cat incident, Emma Joy’s boo boo pack (yes, I said boo boo pack, I had no clue what a boo boo pack even was, but apparently, they are big deal in the toddler kingdom) she is soothing Jeff’s boo boo with her ice cold boo boo pack.  She’s sweet like that, he felt much better when she finished.  I did learn that if  you happen to have a toddler, you should get them one of those things, they work magic, no lie. 

I only cried for about 24 hours when they left to go home.  I should also add that they added insult to injury by bribing my daddy to leave a couple of days later to go to their house for an extended visit.  I think 4 days is plenty long enough for him to be gone, it’s about time he found his way home to NC now. 

And now, back to my massive pile of laundry.  We just got home from a 5 day camping trip.  Praise be to the heavens above, I finally got to go camping.  And better yet, all of our friends got to go too.  We had a wonderful time.  I am sad to report that in the rush to get ready, I forgot my camera charger, thus no camping pictures for me.  I will take extra next time. 

Thankfully or not thankfully if you are my laundry pile, our internet is now back to normal and I should not be on hiatus any longer.  Enjoy your vacation day.  Check back later for more prom pictures and a garden update.

    You bet I missed you. Ever since I saw you and Thad (in which you both just walked right on by me, but I will forgive you) I have been wanting to see what all you did to gussy up the place. And yes, I was about to send out a search party.
