Brunch, Gypsies and Goofballs....

Just returned from a brunch outing courtesy of Chilly....(which was delicious, thank you very much,..although it was a wee bit disgusting when you returned to the table with breakfast fare and a SALAD, Chilly....GACK! I realize after 14 years, I should be used to this, but not so much!)

Had some interesting brunch conversation....

Mommy: "Almost Teen Caveboy, I can totally picture you rockin' the surgeon scrubs and saving lives. That's very cool!"

Irish Dancer Girl: "And I can totally see me using my princess camera to take a picture of you in the nurses room."

(WHAT???) Almost Teen Caveboy chokes on his beverage and wants to offer up his sister for sale...."Can you list her on ebay this week?"

~~~~~~~~~

Fast forward to parking lot...Mommy...busy buckling in the Irish dancer girl...Almost Teen Caveboy...prepping his iPod for the trip home....a normal All American family moment...or is it???

Suddenly, Chilly yells out from the driver's seat: "Do not-ta shrink me, gypsy!" in his Borat voice....

We all stop and stare at him....is his heart medication messing with him or has he just completely lost his marbles?

He continues (very, very LOUDLY)..."I-ya look upon your treasures, gypsy..Is this the previous owner, gypsy? Perhaps, one that you shrunk-a?" (Chilly holds up one of Irish dancer girl's dolls...)

Irish dancer girl (in her best gypsy voice): "I'm-a gonna shrink you if you don't start driving! I've got princess exercises to do! I've got wand lifting, twirling and tea parties to plan! Now drive!"

And scene!

Anyone care to join us on our next brunch outing???

Within the confines of our own families, it's amazing what is said and done! :) My goofy bunch is very much like this too.

Wow! Sounds like some kind of absurdist play. You need to get it produced off-Broadway.

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
