Leaving on a jet plane

Well, not really. Leaving in my car is more like it, but I’m going to the Land of No Internet, otherwise known as a house way up in the NC mountains, and I’ll be away for a few days. You won’t even notice. It will be like–well, it will be like the last several months, except this time I will actually have an excuse.

Meanwhile, to curb your missing-me grief, I just uploaded 9 billion pictures to Flickr, and I think you should look at them. Every single stinkin’ one.

I kid.

If you are feeling the comment love and you’d like to lend a girl a hand, please have a look at the following dilemmas and tell me what to do. If I take your advice I’ll bow every time I see you (or read your blog) and call you Master.

Again, kidding. I am just full of laughs today. I should get up at 7:30 more often (and if you know me at all, you know THAT is also a joke).

  1. If you have children, please feel their glands, particularly those in the neck area, and tell me how big they are. If you’ve had gland obsession like I am currently having, please give me your experiences, as I think Mia’s glands are large and it freaks me out a bit. Okay, a lot. Also, she doesn’t want me to touch her neck at all, which could mean that her glands hurt, or that she doesn’t want me to mess with her neck in general (the latter is a definite possibility because sometimes she doesn’t want me to touch her anywhere, or even LOOK at her).
  2. If you are a SIGG owner, and if your bottle is of the painted variety, and if the paint on your bottle has started to chip, are you continuing to use it? Why or why not?
  3. I am in need of good (read: EASY BUT TASTY) summer recipes. Mind sharing a favorite?

One thought on “Leaving on a jet plane

  1. Wow…all these blog posts! So many to read!

    Here are my thoughtful responses….

    1. If your child doesn’t want you to feel her neck, glands, or any other part of her, it may not mean that she is being antisocial or doesn’t want to be touched. It could be her way of telling you that you have examined her too frequently and she needs a break. This may just be a case of Nervous Mother Syndrome along with a slight break-out of Frustrated Child-itis. I am a survivor of both and the symptoms you describe are very familiar.

    2. I don’t even know what a SIGG is!

    3. While surfing online for recipes that served four or less (I hate left-overs), I came across five recipes that sounded good. I plan on trying them out in July while I am vacationing. I’ll send them to you via email, but they’re recipes for smokey citrus shrimp with parsley, stove-top chicken enchilada lasagna, crispy Italian pork chops, teriyaki chicken sandwiches, and turkey meatloaf (you make it in a muffin pan!). If you try one, let me know!
