Technicalities, schmechnicalities....

It may not be "Margarita" Monday as LMNOB so cleverly suggested last week, but let me assure you all...

Alcohol will be consumed. By me. Tonight.

And then, I hope to retire early and get as much shut eye as possible.

Actually, I've been toying with the idea of checking into a local abbey, up in the mountains. The thought of simplicity, in meals and accommodations, merging with meditations just appeals to me. And I'm not even Catholic - but the thought of the nuns interceding with and for me in prayer is a beautiful image.

Oh how my fundamental-ish church would probably disapprove, but I don't care. God knows what I need and HE sanctions me, not man.

I have so much to tell you, internets. About LMNOB's sensory issues/Rain Man like tendancies, Punkinhead's adorable witticisms, SNOW!, and how my Charlie Brown has been my rock through this crazy time. He melted my cold heart this morning, and I am just left thinking, "This whole idea of 'putting up with one another's $h!t' is such a two way street."

And I am glad for my life.


  1. Do it. (Checking into the abbey, I mean.) You deserve a little respite, and it could make you stronger for the upcoming months. It sounds like a great idea to me.

  2. Believe me, I have considered something like this on more than one occasion over the last fifteen years.

    And would you believe that my word verification is "soulco"?
