We've had no internet connectivity for over a week, hence my lack of blogging.
That's only partially true; we had no wireless connectivity which made blogging less available because truly, I just don't take the time to sit on my desktop so much unless I'm working on a project. I use my laptop moreso for the every day browsing, including journaling my thoughts here.
So little to say...so much time.
Scratch that. Reverse it.
1. House "stuff". We are almost cleared and ready to close! I believe we've met all of our closing contingencies, so November 28th truly can't get here soon enough. Though I'm dreading the packing. We actually don't have very many things - and it would probably only take me a few days of dedicated time to get it all in boxes - but honestly, with kids it's challenging because they're so emotionally attached to everything and they get a little put off when pictures come down and things get sorted. It's funny, we're moving for them - it's for all of us but truly it's their best interests we have at heart and yet....they don't always get that. Whereas when we were kids and had to move, we weren't factored into it even remotely. Not a bad thing or a flaw on our parent's behalf - it's just the way it was.
2. I watched "The Real Housewives" for the first time last night. I chose Beverly Hills because really - they're the only ones that I'm even remotely interested in. I was curious to see how different the insanely wealthy live. And funny, the only thing I really walked away with was the fact that I will never consider plastic surgery. Not that I ever did anyway - but wow, did this solidify it for me. Not only did these women look older than they probably really were - but they looked silly. I mean, really - no one believes you're 25, so why try to look it? You've been there, done that - just embrace who you are and the beautiful within. It's amazing how some women have it all - and yet, are still unhappy on the inside. That's the only place that true beauty radiates from anyway....
3. The debaucle known as the Red Sox. Truly, I almost have no words for this. I'm so very disappointed that this group of professional athletes have thrown their goodwill with their organization - and their fan base - away. Their behavior off and on the field is shameful - and the comments made from the no longer so tender ace pitcher in the past 24 hours are words that I think he will eventually regret. I don't know how to fix this group of overpaid divas (with the exception of a few solid dirt dogs), but management better figure it out quickly. They are their overpaid toys and now, they're going to have to play with them....
