I should address quickly a question that was brought up a few times from my post about Granny the Axe Murderer. What happened when the carpet layers pulled back the carpet? Sadly, I can't remember! I think Granny left when they arrived so she didn't have to see their reactions but I will try to remember to check with mom next time I Skype her.
I should apologize for not being as attentive to all of my blog friends in the past week. Branden got a cold early last week so I spent a lot of time watching old Disney movies and keeping him snuggled up so that he would rest and get over it quicker. Thankfully he's feeling much better today since he is starting his Latin course this morning. And another big thank goodness is that I haven't caught it!! He's past the contagious point so I am in the clear which is a first! Every time he gets sick, he always passes it on to me and I get it 10x's worse! He gets a cold and it turns into me getting a cold AND a sinus infection! I am so relieved that I've dodged the bullet this time!
My littlest baby nephew just had his 1st birthday party. His birthday isn't until the 23rd but they are in the process of moving across the country today so the celebration had to be before they left. I've seen a few photos and I just can't believe how big he is! Thinking "where has time gone?" was also not helped when I received an email notification that my 10 year class reunion is in preliminary plans and being held next summer...isn't Facebook the equivalent of going to a virtual class reunion, expect with the added bonus that you can choose who you wish to catch up with?? I doubt I will be back in the States for the reunion. I also don't know if 10 years is really enough time for some classmates to get together and show how grown up and out of high school they really are. Maybe I'll get excited for the 20th, because at least then we'd look a little different!
This is becoming a bit of a ramble so to add to it, I miss having a bathtub! We did have one in Scotland but I used to say it was made for Chinese midgets as it was the tiniest tub I had ever seen. Our bathroom in Cork only has a shower, and it's a nice shower, but I call it the bank deposit tube because I feel like I'm entering into those clear plastic suction tubes at the drive up bank lane. If any women out there reading this have a tiny corner shower like me, could you please share how in the world you manage to shave your legs in that thing??? I have tried sitting on the toilet lid, on the floor, wedging myself up in it and trying to bring my leg close enough to my face so I can see it (being practically blind doesn't help!) and standing with one leg in while stretching over to rinse the razor in the sink....goodness I miss my midget tub.
So for my music today, I'm going to rub salt in my tub lusting wound and share a Melody Gardot song. She has an incredible voice, her music is dead sexy and she gets to do a music video in a massive tub! She can even fit a man in a suit in it with her...who doesn't have that fantasy!?! Ok, so I would probably be screaming at Branden if he just ruined a dry clean only suit, but hey, it sounds hot!
Enjoy your tubs for me and enjoy today's music!
