BFF, Oopsie, Intersections
Howdy gang! Oh me? Umm..yeah, 'bout that. I've been NOT on the computer this week. Yeah, I know..I think I must be sick also. My mom called this morning though in near hysteria cuz she just KNEW that I must have been killed and my body stashed in some sort of barrel to be tossed in the bottom of our lake since I hadn't been blogging.
Or..she called and told me to get my lazy butt up and start blogging again. Who votes for the second one? Mom..put your hand down, you aren't allowed to vote.
Something else I was lazy about..that darn weight loss ticker that was above my blog. The one that said it hadn't been updated in 80 days and was announcing it to EVERYONE that I hadn't done anything with it. I got rid of it. I feel lighter already.
The weirdest thing keeps happening to me and my sister, Tammy. Around spring break, she and I both showed up in Branson, MO. Our paths only crossed for an evening but we got to see each other and have dinner. I live in Kansas (duh) and she's in Oklahoma. Anyway...I called her the other night to see if she wanted to join me for a couple of days on my next getaway to Colorado. It goes like this:
Me: Hey Tammy! Whatcha doin' on May 30th?
Tammy: Hey Shawn, o' favorite sister of mine. I'm afraid I'm going to be out of town then if you were wanting to come down here? (okay..so maybe I elaborated a tiny bit)
Tammy: (groans inwardly thinking I'm wanting to invade her space - and yes, I knew that she was doing this) I'm gonna be outta town Shawn and no, you can't have my house while I'm gone. (I like the other version better, don't you?)
Shawn: Oh, too bad. I was hoping you could join Da Man and I, we have a condo available with an extra bedroom.
Tammy: That would have been fun, but we are going to be doing a haunting investigation in Pagosa Springs, CO.
Shawn: NO SHIT!!! That's where we are going to be also! That's where I was inviting you to!
After we get over our shock and laughing about that and meeting up in Branson earlier this year...we discover that the weekend following the Colorado trip we are both going to be in the same area of Arkansas also.
How weird is it that I mainly get to see my sister in other states? I mean..sheesh, I can't get rid of her if I try!
Ya'll head on over to Jaci's blog to see if she's got the list up for BFF! It's always fun to get a little peek into people's heads. Sorry, I was gone...I'll be good! I promise! Oh, I'm not supposed to cross my fingers when I say that. Geez, you are tough.
