I used to think that a reliable testament to my abilities as a housekeeper is that, any time I haul out the vacuum cleaner the boys ask "who's coming over?"

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

So, what have I been up to lately?  Not housework!!!

Barely getting in a good home-cooked school day!

Speaking of home-cooked?  We’ve been living on Kraft Mac’n’Cheese, deli ham, applesauce and peanut butter crackers.  Just ran out of yogurt.

New Love

Where has all the funny gone?

I'm sorry I've neglected you my little bloggy pet.  It seems my time has been held hostage by a new love - the writer's forum.

"Writers forum?" you ask.  Yes, it's true.  I've been cheating on you and posting more to the forum than to you, dear.

But don't fret.  The forum could never take your place.  Not for good, anyway. 

I'll be back soon to grace these virtual pages with the quips and essays of a recovering rebel, housewife and home schooling mom.  All I need is a good night's sleep and a minor fiasco caused by my husband to provide some inspiration.

No, Alex's yelling "Mom, Jon doesn't want a box of Kotex for his birthday!" in Target today wasn't inspiration enough.  It's got to be bigger, louder.

Keep my seat warm.

Truly yours,

Gooblink.

A group of 25 women at 5:00 AM on Monday morning singing, acapella, an obscure hymn that nobody under the age of 80 would recognize, with quarter notes jumping both ends of the musical scale forcing us (I mean them) into falsetto, sounds like a band of diffident Munchkins singing to the Wizard about the Merry Ol' Land of Oz.

And that was before I'd had my coffee.

The Case of the Green Goblets

Sunday, 16 October 2005

A while ago I wrote a "post":http://gooblink.com/blog/index.php?id=103 about a panicky phone call I received from my sister who decided to give away a set of dishes that, for years, she had been protecting like it was the Hope Diamond.

It was funny to me, to think that it would be so hard to part with a set of gift-with-purchase stoneware after 20 years of keeping it safely in storage.  Last night while visiting with friends the conversation naturally turned to stemware, and I suddenly remembered a time when I, too, jealously protected a seemingly priceless object.  Here, now, I confess my hypocrisy.
