I am a ma'am, thankyouverymuch.

Today, I am thankful for shamrock shakes..

...and the gardeners who work so hard outside my house every single week. Even though their leaf blower thingies aren't helping my haggit....which is 'greg-speak' for headache. And I am battling a haggit.

The AC repairman just left and actually chuckled when he saw our old, ancient, battered air conditioner.


'Ma'am....I couldn't possibly take your money in good conscience and repair this.'

When, oh when, did I become old enough to be called ma'am, and does that mean you can fix it or not?


Simply add it to the list. It's a long list.

And I like lists, so I guess that's a good thing.

This morning I spoke at a MOPS meeting on the importance of the family table, which I thought was so appropriate since I cannot seem to get anyone to sit at mine this week. God has a sense of humor. M has been working night and day and night again, though I had an email from him today that he'll be home tonight. I will not...Alex and I have an orientation at the high school for incoming freshmen. Matthew is performing at the orientation with either jazz band or wind ensemble. Or choir. Or singers. One of those groups...or all of them?

And then there is Brian. I took a video with my new camera of him playing 'Ode to Joy' on the violin. And is it ever joyful. After only 6 months of violin, too. Unfortunately, for all of you, it posts sideways. And 'Ode to Joy' on it's side is not nearly as joyful as 'Ode to Joy' standing upright.



  1. He probably did not want to touch the AC because of all the candles above and around it. The thing looks like some sort of a shrine!

    If you don't like Ma'am then don't ask the MOPS group how old they think you are.

  2. Gee, Xerxes, maybe she should create a shrine for you! We could get some photos of you that she could decorate the a/c with. On second thought, we don't want to scare the neighbors with your photos.
