A bazilion and one things to say. A bazillion and one things to do yet tonight. OBVIOUSLY, that is not even remotely possible, even for a Superwoman like myself.
But a girl can hope, eh?
I just really don’t know where to start. First let me detail my whereabouts for the last two weeks…..but shush…don’t tell a soul. This is not something I am proud of, and certainly don’t want it shouted from the mountaintops. As the insouciant nun-in-training does in those lovely little hills they call the Alps. Somewhere in Austria…do you think they really filmed there in Austria? In the Alps? Wow. They just don’t make them like they used to, you know? When movies were movies, tame, sweet, entertaining, NON violent…
But I digress.
And yes, we’ve been watching The Sound of Music here at the ranch. I had to beg, plead, cajole…what have you…the 6 year old diva (she wanted The Princess and the Popstar…I just could NOT watch that one more time…I think 50 is more than enough, don’t you?) into just TRYING mommy’s movie.
And…as I knew would happen…she instantly fell in love. And hasn’t stopped asking for it since. Love, love, love that girl. She marched around the rest of the day telling me her name was Liesl and she was 16 and did NOT need a governess. And kept asking me to whistle for her as Captain Von Trapp did.
Wow…I am so far off base here. I haven’t even begun to start addressing the things that have happened in the last two weeks.
Oh yes. I was going to tell you where I’ve been. And then implore you not to broadcast it.
Yes. It’s true. Ebay. NOT buying! (I already did that…that’s now why I have to be on ebay…but that is a looonnnnnggggg story…one I really do not have time for tonight.) Selling. Like a madwoman. Ha ha. The irony.
I will NOT go into what I’m selling. Well..maybe. But not now. Suffice it to say I made some poor business decisions a couple of years back and the time is right to try to make up for that. So I have become an ebay junkie.
And it doesn’t feel good, let me tell you. It is taking over my life. I want to run screaming for the hills “aagghhhhhhh.” Then when I get there I want to throw my arms wide open and spin in a circle and belt out “the hills are alive….with the sound of music.”
See how I did that? Back to the beginning. And the beginning is “a very good place to start….doe a deer, a female deer, re, a drop of golden sun…..”
And now you too can have these annoying little earworms dancing around unbidden in the dark recesses of your mind. 🙂
