I just spent ten minutes typing out something that happened tonight, that was both terrifying and pee-in-my-pants funny. But the more I typed and the more layers I added, the more I realized that it would actually make a good column. So I’m not blogging about it. Sorry. Can’t waste those 600 words that will one day save me from staying up all night on a Thursday frantically trying to meet my deadline. 😀
It won’t go to print til the end of August, probably, but look for it. It’s about a cockroach…one of those massive, horrid, evil 2″ long things we get down here in the south. I am deathly afraid of them. Therefore I do really stupid things when I encounter one.
Speaking of (potentially) stupid things, guess what I did today? Decided that we’re going to plant some pumpkin and acorn squash seeds and see if we can have a small fall garden with usable produce by Thanksgiving. I have two brown thumbs, but the kids have been bugging me to death to do this, so, we’ll see what happens. It’ll be a good learning experience, anyway. I can just hear myself come November, “Now children, what have we learned from our little experiment? That’s right: Mama’s gardening skills stink!”
