Also, how the heck did I miss seeing Robin? Hello, Robin, where the hell were you?
And as we rolled out of town and were far out of site, I heard the fat lady sing “Happy CHSH to all, and to all a good night”. (Yo, the Red Line is weird in the wee hours of the morning!)
Our morning walk got cancelled. (I’m a little more excited about this than I should be) So now I can share my random morning thoughts:
Both of my boys are in Boston for training for their work. (two different businesses-two different trainings. Coincidence? Yes.
Both of my boys experienced their first earthquake yesterday. (Coincidence? No. I already told you they were both in Boston for training) Pay attention here!
Hurricane Irene is projected to move up the east coast. And quote CBS news: “And if it comes up the coast to New England, which is a real possibility, some experts are already making comparisons to Hurricane Bob in 1991, or worse yet a similar hurricane in 1938 that killed some 600 people, mostly in Rhode Island.” (Great, just great! Hold on to your hats boys, you’re about to experience your first hurricane too!! Coincidence or karma? I DON’T KNOW! There was that one time, when they were little, that they were really bad.)
So mine has to do with the classic Blue Oyster Cult skit on SNL. You know the one. The one with Christopher Walken and “more cowbell”.
Well, ‘The Boy’ pretty much has it memorized (along with every Chris Farley and Adam Sandler movie, ..but that’s a different story for another day.) Anyways, during the last part of the skit, where Jimmy Fallon loses his composure and starts to laugh, he utters the words “don’t blow this for us Gene”. And that’s the phrase ‘The Boy’ uses on me ALL THE TIME, because, you know, “I’m Jean”.
Today my youngest son starts his job. This was his message on facebook: “For the first time in 13 years I will not be suiting up to play football. Today I start the next chapter of my life in the corporate working world. Livonia for the week and then flying out to Boston this weekend”.
'The Daughter' is home for the week. We are having so much fun. We have shopped, cooked, hung out by the pool, and have watched Hoarders on tv. (She had never seen Hoarders before and was both horrified and intrigued. So basically she loves it.) I am thoroughly enjoying myself.
Hanging out with my kids, makes me wish they never had to grow up and move away. But for now, …I’m in heaven.
