This is kind of random, but what the hey…
Just to let you know, I flew Continental on Friday. And I actually got home on the same day that was printed on my little Continental boarding pass. And…only 30 minutes late! Hallelujah! Yes, Virginia, there are such things as miracles !
MLH still had to stay out in the sticks, working on a well, and he came in Saturday. Saturday morning, I did a little shopping, had a meeting, then came home in time to greet MLH. Then, it was time to get ready for a supper date with friends. Our date started at 7pm, and I think we got home a little after 11. So, yeah…I’m tired – but we had such a good time, and we totally laughed all night. It was a blast.
Woke up this morning, MLH did the awesome breakfast thing, and I checked out some blogs. There's a new Midland blogger about, and I laughed until I cried at the story of Snooty Primadona's New Exercise Machine. Go check it out, you might cry, too!
Today we went with Younger Son to see the movie “Charlie Bartlett.” It was good, and funny. I needed that! And then, we went to supper with friends. Fun!
I don’t know if it’s spring, or the sunshine, or what, but I seem to be laughing lots lately! I was on the plane, reading a “Stephanie Plum” mystery – oh, yeah, baby, I read the deep stuff – and I laughed until I cried. Imagine – Janie, laughing, on a flippin’ Continental Embrier jet. Y’all know my lack of love for that airline. Janet Evanovich is so funny, I almost thought I was on Southwest or something.
The other day, we drove to Big Spring, to see Elder Son. He’s been working with his dad. (Before we go any further, I want to say that Elder Son’s dad and I share an excellent relationship. We both have worked hard to maintain a friendship for our son’s sake. ) ES had left some clothes at my house, and they were all laundered and starched. He asked me to bring them to him, since I was going to be in town anyway. So, MLH and I drive up to ES’ dad’s house, and they’re all working at the steer barn. I get out of my truck, clothes in hand. They’re working on one of their baby calves, all hands are busy, several people around.
ES: Hi, Mom! If you want, you can just lay those clothes right there in that trailer bed, it’s clean. I’ll be done in a minute and give you a hug.
ES’ dad, smiling: Wow. Must be nice to get freshly laundered, starched up clothes hand delivered to you, son. (He looks at me, then.) Where are mine?
Janie: Dude, you haven't left your clothes at my house in a long, long time.
I couldn’t believe I said it – it just came tumbling out of my mouth! After a moment of shock, everybody cracks up, even ES’ dad.
ES’ Dad: That was a good one.
ES: Oh, God, Mom, that’s awesome! She’s quick, Dad, don’t you remember?
ES’ Dad: Yup, she always has been!
Man. I’m so glad we all have a good relationship, thank God for that. I know other divorced families that don’t, and times like this that could be uncomfortable are pleasant and fun.
Had to take a break, go play best out of 5 Wii tennis with hubby. I beat him soundly. Now, he’s playing Wii Tiger Woods Golf. He better hurry, we have an early morning tomorrow – the oilpatch is calling. Oh, my gosh, I just heard a little crash, I bet he threw his controller off his wrist. Gotta go check.
Yep, he did. Nothing was hurt, thank God. Mike and Pam will testify that MLH gets a little too close to the ol’ TV when he’s Wii-ing…
I’m randomed out - y’all have a blessed week!!
