Today's Reason Why I love my Husband

He believes pennies that are tails up are bad luck , but he turns them over so another person can find them with the lucky side up.

Although he has not been inside a church since our youngest was christened (and that was a struggle) he is planting flowers in a grotto at a local church where he goes to meditate.

When Caitlin got a ticket and was crying, he rode his bike 5 miles to comfort her.

Things I Have to Get Done

I have got to find some way to get some money to send Caitlin to school. I think bank robbery is out of the question and we are too rich(have these people looked in my cabinets?) to get a grant. Does anyone have any suggestions?
On a lighter note...prom dress shopping....wheee!

The Late Lamented LaFonda

It was Mardi Gras
and I was headed to a party.
I put my liquor (and I bought the GOOD stuff), the chips I was supposed to bring and my purse in LaFonda the Honda and thought, "It's a bit cool, better grab a hoodie"
I ran inside
When I came out, LaFonda was nowhere to be seen!
Fearing dementia had stopped its slow creep and had jumped me, I looked in the back yard...I looked under the bushes....
I called Caitlin
"Do you see the car anywhere?"
My child is right there with me.
"Did I leave it somewhere?" she asks.
I indignantly stride to the phone as a fine upstanding citizen to report it stolen.
Welcome to the new economy!
So I did what any self-respecting person would do who has their priorities in order...
I called someone to give me a ride to the party!
I took a day off from work to travel to Milton friggin Florida to get my purse and liquor back.
I had a great Mardi Gras.
Today I went and bought a a 13 year old car that I don't owe a dime on.
I'll drive it till it dies and get another one.
And never break my stride!
