So much to talk about....

It's Friday, and I have a lot to say.

First about that CRAZINESS in California??? I'm referring to that woman who was abducted when she was 11 and was found 18 years later, alive and well. Although, I'm not so sure about the 'well' part. I hope the poor thing gets herself and her two kids to a therapist, STAT. They're having a family 'reunion' on Good Morning America today and I can't wait to see how that goes. I'll miss it because I'm at work, and we don't have DVR (I know, I know!!) But I'm sure it'll be all over YouTube by lunch time, so I'll see it eventually.
I can't even imagine what her parents are thinking....

All of us in New England are preparing ourselves for a lil' storm called 'Danny' that's coming our way tomorrow afternoon.
As it turns out, Jim and I are also preparing ourselves for the BBQ/Pool Party that we're having tomorrow afternoon.
Excellent timing, Danny!
Whatever. We have a really fun group coming over, so even if we end up stuck inside it'll be a good time. I'm going to speak with Jim about a possible alternative to grilling. Not that I mind grilling in windswept rain and getting soaked to the skin, but I think our guests would prefer not to be eating water-logged food. But that's just a hunch.
Either way, we'll definitely have fun and I can't wait to see everyone.

Our 'visitor from beyond' paid us another visit last night. Nice.

Our niece, Molly made me a 'bracelet' for my birthday a few years ago. It's similar to one of those Livestrong, yellow bracelets, but it's just plain yellow and she glued little, white letters on it that spell out my name. Cute, right?
I keep it in the 'catch-all' container on my bureau (which is actually a big, green coffee mug, a la 'Friends') along with loose change, extra buttons, etc...etc...
Well, last night when I went up to bed, the bracelet was placed in the center of my bureau...odd. I asked Jim if he moved it and he (naturally) had NO idea what I was talking about. I explained it to him, we had a moment of "Well if you didn't move it and I didn't move it, who did?" and then he said out loud. "Thank You very much for taking out the bracelet, that was very nice of you. Thanks!!"
We've heard from several people that when we notice 'things' happening around the house, we should acknowledge them, out loud, with a 'Thank You'.
As many of you suggested, it's always a good idea to keep the ghost (or whatever it is) on your good side. :-)

So....that's my latest ghost story. Fun, fun, fun....

I started going through some of the pictures on our home computer last night and I created a couple of new 'sets' in my Flickr account. They're titled 'Summer fun 09' and 'Misc Stuff' (creative, I know).
In the 'Summer Fun 09' set, are pictures of our 'new' backyard (since we had the two giant trees removed) the beginnings of the vegetable garden from earlier this summer as well as pictures of the pool and the pool area, our trip to P-Town, and various shots of some of the BBQs we've had this summer.
In the 'Misc Stuff' set at this point, the only pictures in there are the ones that I took of my old desk in Boston, before I was moved to the suburbs. I have yet to take pictures of my new desk, but I will eventually, and then we can play 'Before and After....which is the better desk??"

Here's the link to my pictures on Flickr, and here are a few to get you 'started'.

Have a GREAT weekend!!!!!

I think Jim is screwing with your head. Which is quite a feat since you have an ENORMOUS NOGGIN! (giggle)

I hope your BBQ avoids that big, unwanted guest.

ghosts are rather a nuisance at times; I suggest you treat them no different than any other family member; I think most would like to be treated such.
