Hi ya'll ,
I 'm going to do a Soulstyle post and just babble about whatever is on my mind. :)
I'm pretty excited about our trip to Amsterdam next weekend .We'll be driving through parts of England, France,Belgium and the Netherlands. We'll also be crossing the channel on either a ferry or in the Euro tunnel. Who knows what photo ops may be on the journey.I am a little concerned......errr horrified at the thought of my spouse driving all that way. I told him yesterday "I wish I had some xanax to get me through your lovely driving."
I don't know what we'll do once we get there. We are going to visit a friend of hubbys and his wife. So I imagine they may have their own plans on where to go and what to see.Will we see the red light district? A pot filled coffee house? The canals? Windmills? I have no idea. It will be a big surprise.
I have never met the people so I don't even know which clothes to pack. Will we go out at night like grown ups? Surely. Will they make me smoke outside in the freezing cold? Probably :(
Will I have a chance to go to a thrift store over there? I doubt it :)
I'm also going wacko over what to do about the cats when I go home . At first the plan was they would be staying here with hubby. Well he just travels too much and I can't really bear the thought of being home for 4 or 5 months with out them either.The cat lady would come but she doesn't stay and spend time with them . She just feeds them,does their litter and leaves.They are just too spoiled to be so isolated from people for that long.
My spouse said he refuses to let the cats take 2 flights (one from London to Chicago and a connecting flight to Little rock ). Meaning ,I would have to drive all the way home from Chicago. What to do?? What to do??? Gah!
Then of course my flight back here would have to be rescheduled because cats can't fly in August. Ack!
A friend sent me an email saying : Aren’t you honored to have been there for “one of
You know I am just thrilled. It has been awful. The last few days we've had gale force winds and constant rain. The other day at the bus stop a woman came up to me and talked my ear off. (This is unusual here) She was British and said this was the worst winter she could remember in 25 years.
How lucky for me. lol
Thankfully ,I was able to understand her. I think depending on where in England they're from ,there are many different accents here. I think it has something to do with the speed of the speech.The fast talking accent ,I stand there like an idiot ,nodding. Then think to myself " I did not understand a word they just said."
In spite of the wind ,yesterday Hubby dropped me off in Portsmouth for some shopping. I got these shoes (I know my sister will just LOVE them)
They're cheapies. But America won't know that . Shhhhhh.
I also got a spring top and some really cute black cargo capris . (come on SPRING!)
I need a list . I keep having these worries like " what if my hubby has to move while I'm gone?" I can just see him getting rid of all the stuff I want to keep and hanging on to crap that doesn't fit me etc...
I need to pack all MY stuff before I leave. Should I take anything home? Like a huge empty suitcase ,so I can bring it back full?Why do I know that I can't accomplish a damn thing without a list ,yet forget to make myself a list?
Note to self: make list
Do you ever feel like some guy is checking you out and then you remember that you're old? Then you have to wonder..."hmm, do I have food on my face? Bird doo in my hair? What's he lookin' at?"
I've been eating a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch nearly every day .It's nearly time for my fancy lunch now.My dahlink' is home for the rest of the week. He's been downloading tv shows for 2 days. Meaning he's got 2 laptops running downstairs(one for tv and he's working on the other) which is making MY computer barely functional.Please make it stop!
My spell check has quit working. Ignore my typos. Have a great day peeps! I'm off to take a shower, eat my sandwich and do my chores. Exciting ,I know.
