This was supposed to be Sunday’s post and my fridge and pasta post was supposed to go up Monday. I wrote them at the same time and must have transposed the publish dates.
Oh, well. This way I can talk a bit about Easter, so I’ll just do two posts on Sunday. It never killed anyone, right?
How is your Easter going? Good? Are you having food and fun with family? Awesome.
How is my Easter?
It just does so far.
It sucks a duck. Or a goose. Or quite possibly even a turkey.
Due to some highly emotional things that occurred last night, I totally made some Easter boo-boos and dropped the ball.
I had the kid’s baskets (full of candies they like, and these books, which I was excited about getting for them.) hidden on the lower shelf of our mobile island. You can see it next to the fridge in the post below. I was up crying a lot of the night and so I forgot to move all the Easter stuff to the table before I curled up in the fetal position in my bed around daybreak. (Can we please just ignore this part in all ways, shapes, and forms? Thanks. I appreciate it. It’s only applicable because there was a major reason I forgot to actually put the baskets out on the table.)
Jon and I don’t get a lot of Easter stuff. I splurge on REALLY high quality chocolate bunnies that I look forward to all year, some Russell Stover’s marshmallow chocolate eggs for me and some peanut butter eggs for Jon.
I stacked them on top of the island and because they are big, we but the boys “Carrot baseball bats” next to them.
My kids came running in to our bedroom and I was curled into a ball in the fetal position (yup. Still crying.) and I told them I forgot to put the stuff out and that it was in the island.
They were thrilled and ate it all up.
They ate up the wrong pile.
So, I had no Easter candy. Not a big deal, it’s just a small example of the suck of the day that I feel like talking about. We aren’t even having Easter dinner with anyone. Jon and I thought the other was making arrangements and I didn’t get any fixings to make an Easter dinner.
So, anyway….The day just blows thus far.
Now that this cheeriness is all done, let’s move on to awarding the Peep of the Week.
The award goes to….
ADAM from the blog, Shadowy Figures.
Holy cow, this former lurker is comment gold!! Try clicking over to his blog and seeing the post about selling a saltine that looks like the state of Wyoming or how his dog, Floyd, should be cast as Tzeitel in an upcoming production of Fiddler on the Roof. It’s a crack up. He’s hilarious, yo.
Adam immediately caught my eye with his first-ever comment on my blog when he was commenting about my kitty, Wilbur and her whorish ways.
“Wow. Hey Loralee. Long time lurker, first time commenter. I was coming here to comment on yesterdayâ€™s post, which I may still do. But I just had to say, holy jeez! Our cats must be doppelgangers. Mine looks EXACTLY like yours.
And another freakish coincidence, HER name is Otis! (Thankfully, she is not the trollop yours seems to be. I chalk that up to my raising her Catholic. The whole â€œfear of Godâ€ stuff we lay on the kiddies (see what I did there? kiddies kitties. ).
Just wanted to say. Great blog. Iâ€™m working my way through the early archives, even though youâ€™ve expressly wished that we not. Nyah! (Youâ€™d have to look very hard to see it, but Iâ€™m sticking my tongue out at you right now.)”
Then today he cracked me up with his commentary about my fridge.
“You just couldnâ€™t resist bragging about your incredible fridge, eh? Now how am I going to go on, knowing that my fridge could be measuring out for my water bottle?
And I stand there eyeballing it, like an IDIOT!”
Thanks for the smile, Adam. It was appreciated.
