We also had the first of Lu's baby showers. This one was a Sleepover/Shower for the younger crowd. Luke's mom brought his sister from Iowa so she stayed too (and us old ladies slept in beds not on the living room floor!). It was a huge success. She got some nice things, we had too much food and everyone made her a customized onesie using fabric paints. There were some talented artists among this group!
Plus I'm trying to squeeze work in there! This week we have Lu's dr. appt, a bachlorette party, rehearsal dinner & wedding of friends. There are still two more baby showers for Lu and the rest of the house to paint. I think things might settle down come September. At least I'm hoping!
Now for ridiculousness~
Me: I'm submitting a couple of poems to this press. Want to hear my favorite"
Sean: *huge sigh* I suppose...
Me: *reading the poem to him*
Sean: Wait just a minute! That poem doesn't rhyme!
Me: Real poetry doesn't have to rhyme Sean. I taught you that in English.
Sean: I don't like poems that don't rhyme. Look at "One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish". That's a classic! Know why? Because it rhymes!
Me: Um. Again. Poems don't have to rhyme.
Sean: That's where you're wrong. Its a state law in Illinois that poems have to rhyme. Violation of that law is a federal offense.
Me: If its a state law, how can it be a federal offense?!
Sean: It just is! And the punishment is beheading. *whips out his sword he bought on Ebay and begins chasing me through the house* (no worries, the blade is not sharp)
Me: *running* That's it!! No more "Law & Order" marathons for you! Or "Tudors"! No one gets beheaded anymore!
I haven't heard back about the poems. I hope they didn't want them to rhyme...
Have a great weekend,
