Hiding Out

If I were a bug, I wouldn't come into this house for the life of me.  

Because I've gotta cat.  A guard cat who protects me from all things scary.

(Reason #833 why cats are so great.)

Last night, for the 2nd time in 2 weeks, a full bottle of red wine has broken inside my refrigerator.

That's TWO FULL BOTTLES OF RED WINE spilled inside my refrigerator.  

The first time, that guy that I like so much and I scoured the fridge clean and marveled at how great a super clean fridge is.

So here's the deal.  Last night I just couldn't do it.  I wiped up the droplets I could see and the rest of it is still underneath all the drawers...the drawers that require a man to pull the refrigerator out from the wall so I can take them out to clean under.  

And it just wasn't going to happen last night while I had a houseful of my boys and their friends who were starving after a day at the beach.

(a day where a lifeguard had to rescue my son and his boogie board, but I am not ready to talk about that yet.  But THANK GOD for lifeguards at the beach.  And for boys who know how to swim.)

Speaking of dinner...this was dinner.  Brats and fries and grapes.  Simple.  To the point.  Fed a crowd. 

Since there was no wine, we broke out the last of the amaretto that I carried home from Italy.

It was an extremely happy/sad, yet tasty,  moment.

Angry Birds has been replaced by Harbor Master.

Have you played it?  And while it is entertaining on an iPhone, it is killer on a bigger screen.

Yep.  We are weirdo's.

Brian has discovered Hulu.

Lots of shows, so little time.

I am on Day 2 of being a bum.  Hallmark movies.  PJ's until 3:00pm. Spilled wine in the bottom of the fridge.

Sometimes a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do...which is to hide from real life for just a bit.

Hiding is better than dealing with the stress of finding a job....right?

  1. Michele, please don't stop writing your blog anytime soon. It's encouraging to me in ways that I can't even quite put my finger on - which may seem really weird given the differences in demographics and circumstance, ha! :) But you tap into things that are pretty universally human - wanting to find humor, beauty, purpose, and hope in the dailiness and the not-always-having-it-together-ness. Thanks for doing that; I know I'm not the only one blessed by it.
