If you think i've been remiss about posting lately, you're really gonna be disappointed with me over the next week or so. ;-)
The last few weeks have been busy and stressful to us. My husband finally talked me into getting assistance with our living-room rehab, and although the lady and her assistants were outstanding painters, the wallpapering job was not even up to my amateurish standard.
I'm a worrier. I worried. It cost a lot and i had/have a lot of amelioration to do. STRESS.
Our tile for the fireplace hearth and surround are chosen, ordered and delivered. Our carpet, ditto. We don't know exactly when/who will undertake their installation. More stress.
...But not for a couple of weeks, at least. If he MENTIONS the rehab while we're having our holiday i'll hurt him. WE'RE GOING ON THE LOW-CARB CRUISE! :-) I'm SO ready to forget about everyday problems for awhile!
My eleven-year-old Volvo made it the 800 miles to Houston without incident, although it's behaved most irresponsibly recently. I myself managed to avoid a meltdown, despite the fact that i worked my ass off the last couple of days and had three VERY inappropriate/inadequate meals in a row. J has neither killed nor been slain. Our thirteen-year-old spitz survived fourteen hours in his crate without actually biting anyone, throwing up or excreting where he shouldn't. ALL IS WELL.
I'm greatly looking forward to meeting some legends of the low-carb world, as well as soaking up some sun after our long cold winter, making new friends, and being completely lazy and self-indulgent for a week or so. If i'm inspired i might write again before we sail, and ditto between Cinco de Mayo and Mothers' Day -- we'll see. For now, happy May Day, babies ... or should that be M'Aidez?
