This post will be short since I am experiencing Carnaval letdown, single parenting, and Lenten remorse. Lest you think I am complaining, I am not; I am just uninspired and overwhelmed about the next six months. KT left Brazil for good on Saturday and now I have no one with whom to discuss the Scooter Libby verdict and the Selma, Alabama soundbites (ok, that is a complaint). Is it just me, or was the political pandering obscene?
In an attempt to get out of my funk, I have helped Mrs. O’Leary spend gobs of $$$ at the frame store. Spending other people’s money is more fun than spending your own sometimes. She says I make her spend the most money of all her friends (I would say the same of her). I am not so sure this is a compliment, hence the Lenten remorse. To my way of thinking, I am just getting those lovely French engravings of hers out of the manila folder they have been carted around in for the past 8 years into some appropriate frames and up onto the walls. Framing prices in the United States are exorbitant so really, this is saving money in the long run. I like to look at the big picture.
Mr. Understanding is in Taipei, eating jelly fish and other delicacies as he meets his new team. Good thing he can’t read the blog and find out about my Lenten remorse!
Finally, Happy Birthday to my Aunt Kathy who is now officially on the government’s Medicare roll!
