Sigh. I’m not in such a great way, Lone Reader. I’m not sleeping well again, and that always gets me down. I had a great weekend, but this week brings lots of work and the prep for a garage sale with my sister on Friday. Preparing for such an event is so defeating – seeing the things your family cherished whisked away for mere coins is a bit of a downer. Don’t get me wrong – I love getting rid of things. I love having less clutter and reducing the kid junk that remains all over the guest room. (God help me if we have a guest.) It’s just a lot of work and at the end of the day you’ve got around $40 to show for the hours of tagging and setting up. Am I bringing you down, man? Sorry.

Part of what’s getting to me is that I can’t find two important papers. It has been drawn to my attention that I may have a wee problem with misplacing things. I know I need a better system. Or any system. I’m very organized at work, it’s once things enter the house they vanish…sigh. I’ll get it together at some point. Okay, starting now, I’m a new woman…organized and on top of things. (Raise your hand if you buy this. Me neither.)

Did you see this story in the news? Someone hit a poor woman’s dog and is now suing her for damages to his ’97 Civic? Man, that’s seriously bad karma, dude.

In other crazy news, a guy in Alabama has invented a machine that can make clouds shaped like logos. Disney is going to fly Mickey heads over Disney World next month. Are you kidding me? On the plus side, I can think of some uses of strategically shaped clouds during the Republican convention in September. (hee hee)

Jesus Saves, the book by Darcey Steinke isn’t so much worth it. Interesting and a quick read, but not spectacular. Glad I didn’t pay full price for it.

Well, I just got off the phone with my sis, who always makes me smile. I’m a little better. I promise I’ll return to the breezy, entertaining blogs of yore. I have so many TRUE STORIES to share: My love triangle with Oprah, a row of animal heads on hooks in the catacombs of Disney, even more bacon lore. Oh, we’ll have a grand time, Lone Reader…just bear with me. Thanks…
