  1. Why would you want to be a marshmallow between David Beckham and Lenny Kravitz? And why would they want a marshmallow between th- Ohhhhhhh.
    Kinky.

    Thank you, this was revelatory. I always thought you were a male CPA in Omaha.
    Also, funny that you know how many umbrellas are in the trunk, but not how many children.

  2. Now that I know you better, I feel compelled to ask if being very silly is your best personal characteristic why do you let worrying about your house cleanliness interfere with your silliness? No one gets to the end of their lives and thinks they should have spent more time cleaning their house unless they are one of those hoarders and they have fallen and they can’t get up and they can’t find the phone to call for help and no one can find them because there is so much stuff in their house and they realize that they will die before they are discovered, then it is very possible they might have a valid reason to think they should have cleaned more. But if you and everyone else in the house can find their way around and there isn’t a noticeable smell, I think you’re good to go be silly.

    Oh, and I must be dyslexic because I think you look a couple of decades younger than 56!

    • Miss Sandy, you couldn’t be more right if you were the Queen of Rightness in the land of Right-on!

      This train of thought is what I have been working on with my Adhd therapist. It keeps me from acting as silly as I possibly can while at home but I always act very silly while not at home because while I am not at home, I feel as silly as a silly gurl can feel :)

      I am so glad and it makes my inner silliness soar to know that I look younger than 65! Whoot!

  3. Yes – Sandy Like a Beach is RIGHT!! Let your silliness shone through and no one will notice the house… you got kids who cares? Dishes can wait..ok not maybe the dishes but dust bunnies and stacks of stuiff as long as they aren;t in the way… silly girl, The being late thing may be problematic because I have my own watch.. can you forgive me for that? I can;t help it I really really promise I can;t. I didn;t know you were a CPA in Omaha… why the HELL does no one clue me in. ??
