Phlorida's a looooooong way phrom India, but I've just got to say it-----
You wonderful guys are just phaking me out all OVER the place!!! I came on here to try to explain/confess/apologize/throw myself on your mercy for the times I prattle on...and on...and on...and by doing so must seem soooo self-centered a lot of the times........and here you go and make me pheel like a mill--a GAZILLION--bucks!!!!!!!
My problem is that my head is still stuck back in the 60's and 70's when computers were room sized and held huge amounts of information and I didn't know what the heck was going on with them. Now my rear is room sized, my brain probably retains less than a menu at Pearline's Pickle Palace (just phor you, Ang ), and I STILL don't know what the heck is going on with them. It's downright embarrassing when you took 6 years of phrench back in high school and college (only to "lose it," cause you didn't "use it" phor the last 40 years), not knowing I would end up in Kissimmee, PHLA......where about 1/2 the population now has close phamily ties to Puerto Rico. People come in the shop with their dogs and there'll be a chihuahua who's more phluently bi-lingual than me, understanding his owner in both english and spanish!! And the worst part? I AM SERIOUS !!!
Oh--and before I phorget, I want to do a coupla shout-outs.
Brenda and Karen--Wow. WHAT a compliment being compared to Erma Bombeck!!! She and Lynn Johnston of the comic strip "Phor Better Or Worse" were my Mom's 2 phavorites!! And me too!! If you're looking to phind great humor in being a mom and aaaaall that goes into being a homemaker, you might as well aim phor the top!! (BTW, I didn't want to put "housewife" there as Mom always said she didn't "marry a house", but "made a home." Each to his (or her) own, but I've always loved that. )
Karen--Great advice!! You would be so proud of me--I couldn't get to the library but I googled my little heart out, putting in "How To Make Money From Blogging" and looked up some "stuff" about how to try to get started.
Hannah--I'm not joking!! Lions and tigers and bears may have phangs, but they're still not as scary as all those downloads and cookies and blogs!!
And Diane--I'm not sure how in your church this might phit in next to "A Scholarly Overview of Jesus' Principles Phor Raising One's Consciousness", but I have a sneaking suspicion that if I'm ever able to get that book deal, now don't kill me here........but I've always kinda thought that "A Mouse Up My Pants And Other Memorable Moments" would kind of sum up my life. Kinda different. Kinda unexpected. Kinda exciting. But definitely never boring. (Hey--you try having a mouse run up your pants past your knee and see how you too could probably earn a spot on "Dancing With The Stars!!"
But I'll tell ya one thing phrom all of this--thanks to you I've stored up enough encouragement, empathy, and inspiration, to say nuthin' of pure wubbiness to last me phor years!! Thank you SO MUCH to all of you. Mes amies AND mis amigos!!!
Love and Light,
