creative, that is an absolutely horrid way to spend any afternoon. I hope everything is cleaned up to your satisfaction, and that your antique table ends up being OK. The tenant above you should make sure her insurance company checks over the table and arranges for any restoration needed. Good luck.

Well, that's just lousy, creative. Hope everything turns out OK.

I'm still cleaning dead stuff out of the garden beds. I looked into the woods, and was so happy to see that the big patch of dogtooth violets' mottled leaves are up. No flowers yet. In the near distance there's a bunch of purple somethings blooming, will have to put on long pants and go down to see what they are. I think it's too early for wild phlox yet.

When I'm smoking food on my Weber, why does the whole house smell of smoke when all the doors and windows have been closed tight?

Munky...what a scare! I'm so glad to hear that you and the Mr. are home now and doing better.

creative - holy cow, what a way to break up your relaxing Sunday! Good grief. I hope the insurance takes care of it and that your little table is none the worse for wear.

Andy...I guess smoke just manages to find a way to seep inside. I know when I grill on the patio my kitchen smells like charcoal for quite a while. Sounds like a yummy roast, btw.

Ever have an this is it "I'm actually a Geriatric now?"

It just hit me.Was sitting here planning out my to do list for the day. Getting ready for the weekend, Menu and such. Kids are coming home to celebrate my husbands Birthday. That's when it hit. His birthday was yesterday!

Now I feel like dirt that I forgot and didn't wish him a happy birthday.

Too much on my mind these days. Phone has been ringing off the hook.
People stopping by unannounced with (Little midget humans in tow)

And my sister has put together some of my mothers personal belongings that she wants me to have that will be here tomorrow.

It's going to be an interesting weekend. Quik lets get this over. It never happened!

Welcome to my world, Munky! And you don't have to be old for that to happen. Your mind is busy with so much stuff it's impossible to remember everything. Like who you are! I was only 30 when our kids were 10 months old. For the life of me I could not remember if Himself's birthday was November 6 or 7. I called my oh-so-organized aunt...and never lived that call down. LOL!

Munky, a few years ago I put Stirling and my sister's birthdays on my calendar with reminders starting a week before the birthday. Those are birthdays I should be able to remember, but not taking any chances.

I'm lucky. DH was born on the 4th of July. Hard to forget. He still gets confused about when my birthday is, but he does remember our anniversary date. I don't, I have to look at the wedding certificate.

Eons ago, his mother put together a calendar page with all the family birthdays at the time. I gave it a permanent place on my wine cork bulletin board, and add any other kids' birthdays as they have them. It's my go-to.

I made sure our wedding date was engraved inside our wedding rings, to make it easy to check. Yup, I've had to. Well, it was to check the year.

Oh, I can just bet she had a field day with that one.

Someone asked me what my real name was the other day. Your right. Who am I? Naturally I out loud, mind you in public replied, "Munky"

Hubby almost died laughing. He's been playing with fire.
