Let's catch up!

So it's been a while since I've filled you in on the goings-on and what-not; but mercy! -- I've been having so much fun! Annie the Wonder Cat tried to keep my blog going for me while I was off gadding about, but she has always had trouble spelling "Oklahoma," so she eventually said screw it. She's like that.

Well, now I'm back, and I can't wait to tell you all about my adventures!

Over the next few days, wanna hear about my trip to Texas and Oklahoma with my sister? You got it! Do you love the sign posted on the door of the Pioneer #3 restaurant?!

I can tell you all about my trip to Rhode Island with my dad, to see my godson get married -- and how old that makes me feel.

And I had a great day yesterday, when I got to go back into the classroom and teach a group of college students. The topic was Chaucer and The Canterbury Tales -- so I just know that's a post you won't want to miss. Make sure you have done the assigned reading before you come to class!

But today a mound of laundry as big as my . . . . -- well, it's really big -- is waiting for me. Do you know that low-grade feeling of guilt and dread you get when you've been blowing off stuff for way too long? That's my diagnosis right now -- so I had better get crackin'!

tangent: Wouldn't it be nice if the Christmas decorations you see in the corner of my dining room were there because I am so proactive and ahead of the game when it comes to preparing for the holidays? Wouldn't you be sad if I told you they've been there since . . . . OK, let's just drop it.

  1. sounds pleasant, - that last dab reminds me of the old saying "I take one day at a time, but lately several days attacked me all at once!" Anonymous

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. The Canterbury Tales is a blast from the past. I'll think I'll take the Cliff Notes version.

  5. Welcome back! I know exactly how you feel. I just put up my first blog post in two weeks. Yikes! Between birthdays planning two trip and mundane crap, I just didn't have time. BTW, love the cat pic...and my kids did too!

  6. I'm craving travel right now...so glad you had a chance to get away.

    I had to laugh at that Chaucer picture. I blogged once, over a year ago, about the Canterbury tales and used the same picture. it constantly comes up as suggested reading in the automated links I have set up at the bottom of my posts and I don't really know why...maybe the travel theme?

    Glad you're back--good luck with the laundry!

  7. Did you really do all that stuff? Wow, I feel so boring right now. I wish I was traveling to Oklahoma and teaching the Canterbury Tales. Lucky you!

  10. Can't wait to hear the details. We all have laundry like that by the way...and even in my little house I occasionally find decorations not put away from seasons past. The to do list is endless...and I'm no Martha Stewart. Oh wait, Martha has a team helping her out! Thanks for coming by, Holly:)

  13. Please don't tell me the Pioneer poster is from Oklahoma?? We're classy folks. There are. no. buffalo. here. Ok?! We don't live on grits and gravy. Liz, I'm beggin' ... give us a smashing review sans spurs and tumbleweeds. We even have those automobiles and paved roads now ;)

    Glad you're home! Just put all of that laundry in the attic, pour yourself a glass of wine, and start on those decorations ...

  16. Hey Liz, thanks for the comment you left on my blog- I couldn't find an email link so...for a glass door.. we have a glass storm door and I use one of those hooks that go over the top of the door to hang my wreaths....you can find them at any craft type store/walmart, target etc. :) my only suggestion... get some of those things you stick on the bottom of furniture (to keep your furniture from scratching your floors). This way the hook & the wreath don't scratch your glass door.

  19. That is funny. Really. Your cat is really cute... I could never figure out how they could type with all the hair between their toes.

    Visiting from 504. I decided I hadn't visited any new blogs for awhile. :)
