“We Need a Blog Post”

So I just received an email from my mother titled, “we need a blog post.” And so we do, but alas, I have only a few minutes before I need to dash out the door.  I have been percolating on several ideas, but none are ready to be brewed. I have, therefore, decided to report on my love of the new iPhone.

I have mastered the taking and emailing of photos.

Found these in Amy's back yard when pickcing tomatoes.

I’m sure I have already exceeded my texting limit and I have made numerous phone calls, none of which have been dropped!

There is a lot more going on these days – lots of house projects (which will merit their own post soon) , afternoons at the pool with friends, and many more late nights than I have had in years, starting with our June DC trip, but the trend continues. Thoroughly enjoyed Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince this last weekend – haven’t yet read the book – but thought the movie was perhaps the best to date.  And Chris and I have become addicted to AMC’s Mad Men, which Comcast is showing on their On Demand in high def (that accounts for a few more of those late nights).  So summer is more than half gone and that is a brief smattering of what we have been up to.

I will do my very best tomorrow and this weekend to add a couple more posts an prepare a few others so next week should have more to entertain you all.  Happy Day to one an all.

    So Mom emailed you to post on my blog? Funny.

    I too have a few partial posts in the hopper, but I guess y’all don’t need me here anymore. 🙂

    Oh dear god, did I blow it again? Sweetpea — I decided to pick on Eileen ‘cuz she’s the one not full-time employed. [I am really JEALOUS that Ms. E has time to “pool sit”]. [And, yes, ladies, I know retirement would solve that issue.] Your tweets have sounded like you are over-extended at work and really don’t need to sit down & do more work when you get home. I know the feeling well and recognize the signs & symptoms 🙂 So, please, darling, no offense intended at all, so please don’t take any. Your posts are always wonderful and so interesting. We are all so lucky to have you both!

    @ Eileen! Thanks for the great photos and summer news. Love that purse!! I think I’m going to have to put a more obnoxious ring on my phone — or the next one when I get it — so that I hear it all the time.

    @ Mom – Not to worry; I was just busting your chops. Didn’t you see the smiley-face-of-sarcasm?

    And I have to agree on the purse. Super-cute. I need a new one badly and just haven’t found one I like.

    THANK YOU for posting. I didn’t have the guts to bug you (you have lives), so I shared with your Mom that I missed your updates. I’m so glad she missed them, too. Just reason #3087 that I love Aunt Mary!

    And thanks for letting me enjoy the benefits of your iphone. Completing a conversation in one call, without a 5-second voice delay – worth it!

    Awesome purse! Nicely done!

    @ Sarah, I thought we were co-blogging now? 🙂 What’s all this “mine” mine mine??

    @ CL, so glad that we get to have one convo these days

    @ Mom, Sarah made me an awesome ring tone (at my request) but I am afraid it might be too soft – I keep missing calls too (but at least I know with the iPhone I’ll get the message)

    Hugs to you all

    LOVE the purse and I generally don’t like animal prints, but that one is super cute.

    I think that I need to come back in my second life as a domestic cat. That is the life.

    1st post in 9 days makes the 3BT list here…just behind ALL BOYS CURRENTLY SLEEPING WHILE THE SUN IS UP!!! #3 would include clearing out some camera memory by filing / printing pictures (about 700 of them over the past couple of years).

  8. Sarah July 23, 2009 / 5:51 pm

    Uh, seven days, CL, not nine. We’re bad, but we’re not that bad.

    Oops! Please accept my apologies. Today is the 23rd, not the 25th. It’s rough being old.

    I love the co-blogging. Especially the part where you fight about whose blog it is. Brings back memories of sharing the bathroom with my younger sister…
