A whole lotta nothing going on...

I have absolutely nothing witty or funny or even mildly interesting to say lately, so I've not posted a thing in awhile.

I've been busier than usual at work and have not even had time to visit your blogs and for that I apologize.
Things are vewwy vewwy good, but I've been vewwy vewwy busy! I have taken on, once again, more work than I should, and since I am me and all, i feel I must have it all done before I allow myself to go to Denver to visit my son.

Yes, you heard it here...I'm going to Denver to see Wolf for Easter! It will be a quick trip, but well worth it.


I will try to take lots of pictures and maybe even post one or two from there...I know, I know...famous last words.


None-the-less, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Oh, I do have one semi-funny thing to report. At a meeting yesterday I saw a woman I hadn't seen in nearly a year. She took one look at me and said, "you look gaunt, have you been sick?" I laughed and said that I had not been sick, in fact I felt better than I had in years.

When I got home I looked up the word gaunt. According to Dictionary.com it means:

gaunt–adjective, -er, -est.
1. extremely thin and bony; haggard and drawn, as from great hunger, weariness, or torture; emaciated.
2. bleak, desolate, or grim, as places or things: a gaunt, windswept landscape.
My hope is that she meant 1. extremely thin and bony rather than haggard and drawn or worse yet bleak, desolate or grim...

And FYI, I am far from thin and bony (although looking at my most recent picture, some might say I am a bit haggard--haha!!).


Hugs and much love to you all, some even more than others (you know who you are).

Hey Good LOOKING what ya got cooking! Have a wonderful trip to Denver. It is always great to be with family for the holidays. A little eye liner may do the trick for your new look

Squirl said...

I haven't been around the blogs much lately either. Sure hope you enjoy your trip!

Mary said...

Have fun, Laurie. Don't forget your compass.

Your sense of humor is still shining - you are not desolate or grim, at all!

Gaunt? I believe you are too energetic to be gaunt!

Pink said...

Oh no she dinnit!! She threw down the gaunt-let

(I slay myself)

But I like what you've done with your hair.

Travel safe

She threw down the Gauntlet did she? How dare she!
Your honor demands satisfaction!

Challenge her to a duel..that would make an awesome post.

Cathy said...

Oh! How great to spend Easter with precious Wolf! Yes, take pictures. Give your son a hug from me - he's such a wonderful person.

As for that 'gaunt' remark.

Hmmmm. Me thinks she might be a titch jealous of your new svelte self.

Have a fabulous trip.

Big Hug and Love,
Cathy

Thomas, I promise to take lots of pix!

Butterfly, I know, perhaps I should invest in some face cream?

Littlepea, I most certainly will!

Dave, ;-) I will hon, thanks.

Squirl, I haven't been either, life just keeps getting in the way, n isn't it grand? :-)

Mary, I have Marcia, my navigator. I picked it up from my cousin's house in Billings today. I don't dare go without her...I'd probably end up in Mexico.

Nick, I am anything but gaunt. I think she was just surprised by the weight I'd lost.

Pink, you crack me up too!!!

Donn, I think I can take her!!

Cathy, she's really a sweet lady, I think she was just surprised when she saw me and said the first thing she thought. When she found out I wasn't sick, she quizzed me as to how I'd slimmed down and I was happy to tell her. We are actually going to start walking together when the weather clears. :-)

Hugs and much love to all of you. I'll post again from Denver (hopefully).

Waaayyyy too funny! I am glad you are staying busy and having fun.

Ur-spo said...

i use the word 'gaunt' a lot but only to describe teen girls with eating disorders.

i was glad to see you post again; it is always fun to read your daily doings.

Lynne said...

I hope you travel safely and enjoy your Easter with Wolf!
