I am out of here

If this is your first time here, go back and read something else.  This one is boring. Great lead in, right?

I have been so busy this week, my brain hurts. But who isn't busy, right?

So it is perfect timing that I am going out of town this weekend with four other beautiful women. I couldn't be happier.  I love my family, but I LOVE getting away from them.  I never feel guilty about leaving, and I am always super excited to go ANYWHERE.  I probably love it too much, but that is okay.  I haven't NOT returned...yet.

I am going to a friend's timeshare for the weekend, somewhere on Lake Mille Lacs.  This is the second year they have taken this trip.  I had to bail last year at the last minute, because something Bob said at his psychiatrist's office, landed him inpatient at the VA for yet another treatment for his PTSD.  Ah, progress.

This year he isn't at a dangerous place, or I wouldn't be leaving.  I asked him to keep his shit together this year, so mama can get away.  He was totally down with that. Plus, his family is going to make sure everything is okay.   I have stocked the cupboards and fridge with fast chow that they all like, so they will be set.  I am grateful that Bob has had a better week this week.  So I don't feel nervous about it at all.  Hey Bob, don't make me regret this shit huh?

OH and I THOUGHT I was going to be going to Los Angeles in two weeks, to be on a T.V. show, but I think that they aren't using me anymore.  You see, I don't fly.  Won't fly.  Can't fly.   And from here to L.A. on a train, is like sixty-three hours each way (which sounds like HEAVEN to me.) I would of course need a sleeper car.  The cost is like $2,300.00 round trip.  I think my diva demands made them decide that they could find a cheaper recovering drug addict. But I'm still not 100% sure it's off.

What I've learned about the television folks is that the whole, "don't call us, we'll call you" communication/relationship style is so very true. I thought that producer at ABC and I were besties, and she was going to help me with books, and other shows, etc. No. She is a nice woman, but when they are done with you, they are done. Remember how I hold onto my friendships forever? How I get overly attached to people?

I do still have her home phone number...

I will say more about that if it either does, or does not happen. I just REALLY wanted to spread the recovery story, to anyone who will listen. And going to L.A., of course, would be kick ass!!

But for now, this is all I have.  Have a nice weekend. I'm off for a super exciting trip with a bunch of broads who don't drink.  We are going to have so much fun.

I'll add pictures throughout the weekend, so check back here. See ya, I'm OUT!

Someone sucks at panoramic options on the iPhone!

Some people are pretty damn funny.

It's been awhile since I slept in a twin.

One little bird, beside my doorstep. Won't sing sweet songs.

I couldn't decide between this or a hand grenade for the kids. I went with this.
