we interrupt the silence you have been experiencing on this blog for a message from your hostess with the mostess

For the last ten days....the non-blogginess of this particular site can be blamed on the following, in any combination or singularly, at any given time of day or night:
influenza of the swine-ful kind (Issei),
birthday celebration (again, Issei),
 sickness sympathy symptoms (Koji),
apathy (lot's and lot's of that, but not about the sick son or the fake-sick son either),
feelings of being overwhelmed (taxes, bills,lack of funds to pay those...good Lord. it's official. i'm a cliche.),
very intense, down-to-the-last-seconds, hometown highschool basketball game on Internet AM radio---nephew-types on team,
PTA meeting (snore),
anxiety caused by the medium I had made plans to talk with not answering her phone---seriously...wouldn't you see that as an omen of the 'not so good kind'??  I know I've got some interesting people "up there", but would they frighten a medium? (She had a family emergency..so sorry to hear that, and yet, slightly relieved.),
thank-you party by soon-to-be 6th grade graduates for their parents,
crying...at beforementioned party (thank goodness I could understand only parts, I'd a been a puddle!), 
a stressful meeting with parents who don't understand that I can't be a leader of their group since I can't read or write this language which might hinder the proceedings, just a little..hello people...do I have to freakin' cry to make this point??
Olympic madness,
PMS of the worst kind,
newly-turned-12-year old on his own emotional roller coaster NOT in the same theme park as his mom,
a really bad case of blogstipation,
and
oh yeah,
overwhelming feelings of
what the hell is going on and why isn't there
a Starbucks closer to my house???

Has this cleared the confusion at all?
(Was there any confusion even?)
Now... I just realized that the new Blogger editor does NOT have spell check...and that pretty much bites.
So, I guess I should apologize for any misspelled words.
Crap.  My spelling sucks.

"Mommy!! Help!!"

"Koji!! Did you cut your eyebrows?"
"No, my friend did."
"Allllrightyright then."

"I'm....that guy....on that movie."
(Yeah...uh-huh...just muuuuch shorter...and not as Australian.)

You all have a good Monday.

Belated birthday greetings!!! I hope he had fun even though he was a sickie.
I am exhausted after reading all of this.
And thanks for reminding me I need to get my eyebrows waxed(by a professional.)

I thought the chopstick hands were an impression of Edward Scissorhands...who by the way is not Australian. :0 my bad.

Somebody needs a hug...and a margarita. As Jimmy B. says...Breathe in, breathe out, move on.
