The Day I Got The Urge To Go Clubbing

It may have been the multiple road trips to clients I've been taking racking up a few too many hours in the car solo, or in anticipation of the many more that will take place in the coming weeks, or the fact that XM 20 on 20 is blasting loudly during all of them, but the urge was there and it was kickin. Had I not been somewhere between Nowheresville and Wayoutthereland New York I may have even considered pulling over to find a local establishment that would permit me to dance to a tune or two on their jukebox. Maybe a quick spin to the Black Eyed Peas "Boom Boom Pow" or (GASP!) a twirl or two to Britney Spears "Circus"?? What can I say, there was a mood and I felt it. Next week's trips land me in Jersey territory, maybe then I'll have the guts to follow through on said spinning and twirling. Or maybe I should just book that flight to London's Hethrow and plan a proper ladies night(S) out with the lady who introduced me to them in the first place. So, so tempting.

Meanwhile back in realityland...

The Weatherman says it's going to be 70-80 degrees and sunny for the ENTIRE WEEKEND. And our Cloverlandfarm friends hooked us up with a babysitter so that we can attend Sunday evening's debut of Off and Running. And Ash devoured an entire bowl of pretzels and hummus before bedtime tonight (I'm guessing this is due to the fact that he ate NONE of his fried tofu or edamame at dinner - the sushi chefs were not pleased) which means he may not wake up in the middle of the night asking for "more milk please". And, we have a cleaning lady coming next week in preparation for the worlds largest birthday bash for a two year old. Yes, we've hired a cleaning lady. And she's going to put all the right things in all the right spots and just hide everything else. And everything is going to smell like lemons, she promised.

And meanwhile back in really realityland...

Great Grandma McGregor passed away today. A dearly loved soul whose arms are being felt strongly today as they wrap around us all. Rest assured Ash will sleep soundly tonight with her new found angels wings keeping him nice and warm. Lots and lots and lots of love to the McGregors tonight.

A perfect tribute to special lady. She was a riole model in many ways to me. I still remember the time Mike's Dad told me she was pregnant, again. It was her 10th child and her oldest son was planning his wedding. The stories that lady could tell.

On a lighter note, let me know when you're going to London....


Can't wait for the weekend. If I was you, I'd have the cleaning lady in after the party :)

Beautiful tribute to an obviously extraordinary woman. And yes, I'm sure she is Ashton's very special angel - while she is resting in God's arms with her labors on earth over. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I am so far behind on blogs and feel extra horrible for just reading this now. I am so sorry for your loss. Sending healing thoughts to the three of you.
