It’s the weekend. Everyone is out partying tonight. Not you? If you are not out partying tonight, surely you have a job you need to go to. The unemployment upsweep has not hit you yet? Unless you are an agoraphobic Cat Lady, chances are you need to communicate with someone at some time. Right? Well I am going to give you five pieces of information that will catapult you into fame and glory in the eyes of the people you come into contact with; even you, Cat Lady.
Happy November 1!

Still not dead. Sorry. I’ve been super busy lately, and having time to sit down and write anything has been just a smidge beyond my capabilities as of late. Be that as it may… HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! To add a little humor to our holiday, I am going to tell you a knock-knock joke. Ready?
Me: Knock, knock.
You: Who’s there?
You: Ivanna who?
(To protect the identities of the people who were involved in this saga, we are going to pretend this saga is fiction. When I type the word ‘I,’ I am not referring to me; I am referring to a fictional person. When I type the words ‘my husband,’ I am not referring to my husband; I am referring to another fictional person. These stories ’did not’ happen.)
I* am really good at getting drunk of screwdrivers. I* don’t think I did anything I will regret, but I do know that when I woke up the next morning, I didn’t have a hangover, and my spirits were high. I was raring to get started on the next leg of the Roadtrip. We took full advantage of the continental breakfast at the hotel before leaving. (By “took full advantage” I mean that we filled a plastic bag with every portable food item on the table. I had to restrain the kids from trying to take the toaster, too. We didn’t have anywhere to plug it in, so it would have just taken up valuable room in the car. However, hindsight being 20/20, I really could have benefited from having it to throw at the kids later that day. But I digress…)
Did you know that cheating on your partner is less stressful on a relationship than deciding to tackle a home renovation together?
I have absolutely no scientific evidence to back this up but over the past 18 months, the Mister and I have been deep in reno-mode and let me tell you...our plumber is looking awfully good to both of us right now.
