I wrote posts all week in my head. (Rest assured, they were as funny and delightful as usual. I am sincerely sorry you missed them.)
Monday's post was about drowning my Monday and my Monday sorrows in peach pie. As I write, that gorgeous pie is still on the counter...untouched. We've been too busy to eat it. And every time I offer it up, the kids just ask for peaches-and-cream instead. Who needs crust? Just go straight for the good stuff.
Tuesday's post was about how I spent all the grocery money on wigs, and how it was totally worth it. Don't worry, I've got cupboards full of beans. Who needs food when there is lip syncing to be done? Or we could always eat that pie that's sitting on the counter.
Wednesday's post was about how I ignored all the boa feathers scattered around my house and in my bed (ooo la la) and went to lunch with two of my favorite people in the world and how nice it was to pick up the conversation exactly where we left off, nearly nine months earlier.
Today's post is about how I am so low on my sleep quotient that I went out today to buy a wedding present for my very good friend's son.
Last night I told David, "Tomorrow is the Wilkins' wedding reception. And we're going. It's non-negotiable." (David hates wedding receptions. But non-negotiable means that if he wants to stay married to me he is going with me. I could see him weighing his options.)
I read the invitation four times this morning, because something kept going off in my head. As I was leaving Target today, gift in hand, I realized what it was.
It says: OCTOBER 16th.
And today it is only September, although I am so tired it feels about twelve years past that.
I actually stood stock-still in the parking lot as my brain finally figured it out and said, "Ooooh." After that, I got back in the car and went to the grocery store to buy nine tubs of cool-whip because I am going to have a nap and then drown myself in that pie no matter what.
Did I tell you we are putting on the ward talent show on Saturday night? Below is our entry. It is not the Black-Eyed Peas, but it has its merits, especially if having your own set of Beatles makes you completely gaga like me. If you don't have ten minutes to waste (we really can't help ourselves), skip to minute 8 to see David making love to a blonde bombshell. It is as delightful as pie.
