New York City Girls

Last night, I went to see the Sex and the City movie with a group of girl friends. Bean wanted to know where I was going and I told her I was going to see a movie.

"Mama, what movie are you going to go see?"

"Um, it's called New York City Girls!"

Fortunately, my brain was fully engaged in the conversation!

Grey's Anatomy Finale

I was going to post a cutesy title, but I figure if you read that title and haven't seen the episode yet, it's pretty obvious there will be spoilers ;>

So, very nice and pat. Of course, this is Shondaland, so nothing can work out quite so nicely.

Here are my predictions for next year:

Derek goes to tell Rose and is involved in a horrific accident on the way back to Meredith. Miraculously, he makes it out unscathed, but, when he returns to the land, he finds that Meredith has been abducted by aliens.

Hahn and Torres decide to leave the medical profession and open a lunch counter. Name? Sapphic Salads. Mark Sloan bankrolls them.

George decides that everything is going pretty well for him because he is celibate and tells Lexie he can't possibly have a relationship with her. Lexie sleeps with Alex, instead.

Izzie realizes that she really never will have George ever, so she sleeps with Alex instead.

Mark realized that he will never be asked to be in a threesome with Hahn and Torres, so he sleeps with Alex instead.

Everything turns out jelly-side up for Bailey.

Christina Yang falls in love with the gorgeous new head of OB/GYN, Dr. Adam Turner. She marries him. Yes, she will be Tina Turner.

I've been on a cleaning rampage.

The house is sort of a mess. It's clean, but we've sort of lapsed into a general atmosphere of untidiness that is driving me bonkers.

So, I've been doing something about it.

The problem is that Dr. Pig is a saver and I'm not. And he tends to save things regardless of the quality of an item. The fact that it's dented, half-melted, or stained doesn't always register. However, at this point, we've been married long enough that he no longer feels like I'm tossing "his" things and even he can see that, if we haven't used it in the last 10 years, perhaps that dented pie plate is not really adding a lot to our household ;>

I'm sort of acting like I'm getting ready to move and making a first pass. Because if we do move, I don't want to have so much stuff to go through that I start tossing the good stuff because I don't want to look at any of it again!

No, really, I do still exist

I am, like most of you, incredibly busy. As I've mentioned before, I'm on the board of a couple of local charity organizations (nothing fancy, but lots of work) and the year-end wrap-ups and events and meetings have been going on at a frantic rate. I have not one, but THREE events tomorrow. All at the same time. I may end up going to one. I may decide to bail on the whole thing. I'm a bit worn out.

Plus, the end of the school year, the school play, and the 87 other school things and soccer things and Bean scheduling.

Combine that with an insane workload from Dr. Pig and you have very little knitting and really nothing to post about other than the usual blah blah. If you have children, you know the tune. If you don't have children, you probably don't care where that particular radio station can be found! I, of course, think that Bean is the most insanely cute, smart and fabulous child in the world, but even I can tell that I may be just a touch biased ;>

Oh, and, because I'm an idiot, I agreed to teach science lab at VBS. It's just sand and water experiments. I think they know better than to ask me to do anything actually related to theology! (And now, children, we will compare the teaching of Buddha to the Beatitudes.)

Poisonous Caterpillars*

Before I left for St. Louis, Bean brought home her science lab homework. It had a list of Living vs. Non-Living Things. All spelling, punctuation, etc. has been precisely reproduced for your enjoyment.

Living Stuff

posinis caterpilers

Non-Living Stuff

ded birds
Pudls (puddles)
bird poop

I love 6!

*If I ever have a band, I'm going to call it Poisonous Caterpillars. I'd make a mint. If I had any musical ability whatsoever!
