Today, my friends, the Minnesota Senate votes at noon on the freedom to marry. Today, Cayla and I find out if we can get married legally in our home state. I have butterflies. My stomach is doing flip flops. I am so fucking proud of my state. Today is the day. It's happening.
Friends, I stayed home all week from work with a horrible cold. And my phone was stolen last weekend. I have been unplugged and in bed for a week now but it's time to RALLY because this weekend we are setting up shop and swinging into Glam Doll Donuts (on Eat Street, for you Minneapolitans). We are setting up shop tonight (late because they are open until 1 a.m.), then heading in bright and early to finish up. At this point, I have no voice, am hacking and coughing, and can't stop blowing my nose. I am praying and a hopin' and wishin' that I feel like a million bucks by tomorrow.
I will let you know if eating dozens of donuts is the magical cold cure we've all been waiting for. You just never know. If you live in the cities, stop by, bring your ma, and grab a donut. I would love to see you!
Spring is finally making it's slow-as-molasses way to Minnesota. We are expecting sunshine and warm temps this weekend. Helllooooooo 70s! I am ready to get outside, wear a dress, and shave my legs (that is going to be a project, let me tell you).
We have been busy this week with running errands and doing a little spring cleaning. In not-so-fun news, we discovered we have some furry critters living in our kitchen. We set up traps. No, scratch that, **I** set up traps while Cayla cried. It had to be done, so I put my big girl pants on and did it. We haven't caught anything yet - and I am going to have to deal with it when we do - so I am not too excited about that. Fun! (I tried all the hippie-shit guys, I did - cayenne, mint, calendula, none of it worked. Although they are very good-smelling mice now.)
While at Target last night buying said mousetraps, I happened to pass this baby.
I am CONSTANTLY talking about learning how to sew (and admiring Lisa's mad skills), and when I saw this, I yelled for C to come over. (OK, I might have screeched! I mean, it's MINT!) Cayla came over and was like, want to add it to the wedding registry?
Why, yes, yes I do!
I figure, if it's easy enough for kids to use it, I can probably figure it out (and not sew my hands together), right? However, I don't think I can wait until October.
So, I am finally coming out of hibernating season. We are on the 9th season of Friends (yes, we re-watched the whole series this winter and I have no shame). It's time for flowers, bike rides, beers on the patio, and puppy play dates.
Thank, christ. I was seriously about to lose it with this never-ending snow. I promise I am coming out of my snail shell - and will be posting more regularly. Sloth season has officially ended
