We've run out of rules for the moment and have moved into the dissertations. So far this morning I've been instructed on: Not using polish remover (wear clear polish only and let it wear off. I'm betting the polish is as bad as the remover),. Also, that my desire for a brown bed quilt is wrong thinking. White is better b/c the dog grime can be..
Mom's version of 'Give the dog a bone': vTake sliced beef bone from freezer and boil it to death. Remove marrow and any meat bits. Pin dog's ears behind her hair with a hair clip (standard poodle with very full ears). Give the do the bone. Demand dog take it out on the porch. Raise voice at confused dog (porch door is closed). Apologize to dog
Mom called today to ask what she could get me at the grocery store for my upcoming visit. The discussion dissolved as it always does into 'what I should eat' vs 'what I do eat'. Some discussion later the conversation flipped with whiplash speed into what she wants for Christmas ... Pearl earrings. Sigh.
Hard to believe that I won't be at the torch again for three weeks. I'm happy to report that 95% of what I wanted to finish for the show is finished and today will be mostly play. Here's to hoping I do good things!
Weekend to do: Make all the beads. Laundry. Office supply store. Sephora (for a travel sized splurge to keep me sane at moms. Something very ahhhhh). Make more beads. Mow / trim / edge the lawn. Hem a pair of jeans. Start piles for packing. (Loose 50 lbs, whiten my teeth, get cute hair ... hah!)
