Where Have I Been? Nowhere Fast....

I haven't posted lately. I'd like to be able to tell you I have been off gallivanting somewhere exotic or hiking or camping or otherwise relaxing but, alas, I have merely been busy (in no particular order) writing, editing, being a mother, doing dishes, doing laundry, yadda yadda yadda. Apparently this is Crazynutsobusy Season. No one told me, so I did not have it marked in my day book and it has taken me a bit by surprise.

There's GOOD news, though. Girlchild's
Terrible Wound has healed - with much thanks going to the moon. And to my brain, if I do say so myself [insert back pats here]. Also, in the more-than-you-probably-wanted-to-know category, that little girl known as Vernette has had some decent diaper action of late, so there has been muuuuuuuch less screaming in her house. Phew. Meanwhile, back at our ranch (we don't really live on a ranch), her Diva-ness has been very very busy performing most of the songs from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on a daily basis. That would be all day, every day and on into the night. This spate of dramatic activity was brought about when we purchased the DVD shortly after seeing the musical at Boychild's school. I am happy to report the DVD only aired twice today. Not surprisingly, the Joseph soundtrack runs pretty much on an endless loop in my head now, and the only way I can make it stop is to play Metallica really really REALLY loud. Okay, not really. Fortunately, I like the musical. Unfortunately, that may change.

Speaking of unfortunately, the BAD news is Boychild's buddy, Neighbourboy, will be
moving away in a matter of days. This makes me sad when I think about it. Fortunately, I am in complete denial about this fact. Even though they're not going far (albeit too far to walk), it still means our people and their people can no longer easily congregate in the backyard. I will certainly miss chatting under the apple tree with Neighbourboy's Mom about mom-type things, like poop and screaming. If I ignore the fact that they are moving, it won't really happen, right? Right? I can't hear you....

There could be a LOT worse than the "Joseph" soundtrack.

At least it's not Barney!

Sorry to hear of the neighbor moving away. That's too bad.

Enjoyed your witty post! We're surrounded by teenage neighbors, so I envy you for having had neighborboy and his mom so close in proximity. Sorry to hear about their move.

Hope you get some relaxation soon!

I would watch that (Vernette singing) on Youtube :)
