The barn was finished by the time I made it up there.... Bob and Pam finished it the week-end after they took their first and only born daughter to college...so I was treated to a boatride up and down the coast. Ahhhhhhhhhh... it was a postcard perfect !!

This morning as I was slugging my tired achy body out of the grocery store I ran into my mom.
"Whats wrong with your hand ?"she asked.
"I stabbed myself"
"I stabbed myself as I was making salad for dinner last night"
In one split second my mom pushed her cart away and said "We are going to the hospital right this minute "
So 2 hours later.... I am all fixed up.....deep gash about 1 inch from the jugular... I will be packing boxes one handed.
PS yes i really did stab myself...it was the all american scene at our house that early evening... hubby outside grilling , I was inside chopping veggies for salad, and the teens upstairs doing homework... when all of a sudden I decided that my knife wasnt sharp enough... so I began sharpening the knife... and on one of the sharpening swings... the knife went into my wrist instead of onto the sharpener.... aghh.... blood everywhere... and suddenly the all american scene at our house looked like a murder scene instead.

I love friends ! Look what my friend Linda does with her photos... she has a huge tray on her coffee table filled with snapshots.... current and old snapshots... for all of her family and friends to look at while they sit in her cozy family room and sip iced tea .... or perhaps margaritas! Great idea Linda.... I think I will copy it!

I have been obsessing about my boyfriend lately..
It started the other day when my girlfriend Linda called me and asked me if the DH on my blog stood for Dumb Husband....
and I just started laughing...
then I said " no Linda... that would be DA"...and when we both stopped giggling.....
I told her that DH was blogese for Darling Hubby..... later that day I posted something on Andreas blog about our "boyfriends that we married years ago "...after that entry it came to me that during the next few years as my babies prepare to leave the nest and go off to college...maybe I just need to fill my time and thoughts with going on dates with my "boyfriend".... just like I did 20 years ago..
I wonder if he will still like me ?????

Some moms are good at making creative breakfasts for their kids and others are....not.
Last week my friend Pam-Sue was telling me how she had surprised her HS girls with"clouds" for breakfast....
Well my HS princess has drooled over that story for a week... so voila.... today I made "clouds".
Clouds are made from refridgerated biscuit dough... filled with a chunk of cream cheese that has been dipped in melted butter, sugar , and cinnamon. The biscuit is pinched at the top and cooked in a muffin tin at 350 for 15 minutes. They smell heavenly !
Me ??? My favorite breakfast is Special K in my antique blue and white cafe-au-lait bowl.
I prefer to reserve my special culinary skills for dinner.... sometimes...
Thanks Pam-Sue for making me look like an awesome mom this AM !!!

.... and I just cant hide it... (are you singing with me Capello ??) I think we have hit a growth spurt in my College Princess' life... she is NOT coming home next week-end.... WHY????? because she has a date to the midnight yell and then to Saturdays football game. This is BIG... not because she has a date... but because she wants to stay at the university and have FUN instead of coming home for the week end and do all of the things we did in high school. You see last year... my college princess was soooo homesick... she called several times a day crying,,,, sobbing... because she was sooooo homesick... it was heartwrenching...She has called a few times this year teary.... BUT nothing like last year. Sure I would like to wave my magic wand and rewind a few years... but in the meantime... I am gonna savor this moment !!!
