Anyone remember the old commercial: "Calgon, take me away!"

That's how I'm feeling right now. How can the afternoon be going so slow when I'm so busy?

I hope time speeds up a hot for you...I'm in the same boat! I've mentally checked out but there's a lot more work that needs to be done. Hope your day gets better!

Happy Friday! We finally have a beautiful weekend in the 60s. We got a new fire pit last night and we will be using it this weekend. We also go new furniture yesterday!! It wouldn't be that exciting except my husband moved our old furniture to the basement for the kids and then went to buy the new to find out it had to come from another state and wouldn't be delivered until Sept. 12th. We have been sitting on camping chairs and a blow up air mattress for almost 3 weeks. It was so nice to come home from work yesterday and sit on a couch. We have a weekend of football games, horse riding lessons, yard work, and hopefully a little bit of relaxing before I have to go back to work again on Monday.

Maybe Calgon with be at your house when you get home and will take you away. Many times, it has happened for me and feels wonderful! A glass of wine resting on the tub edge or on a tray also helps!

And Mgramsey, that's a mini statue of the Duke!

I love "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" by BNL. FYI, bare naked ladies are gorgeous-looking pale pink plants that smell divine! Once in church, an older lady brought them to decorate the altar. I asked her about them and really laughed out loud when she told me she brought bare naked ladies to church!

Anyway, Kim and I just found out today and purchased balcony seats to see BNL perform at the National Arts Centre here. It should be a great time! Very excited!

I have wanted to see BNL live since I was about six years old when their debut album Gordon was released in Canada and the song Enid was a number one hit... at least it was in Canada. Of course, that longing increased even more with the release of Barenaked for the Holidays. And now, I'll finally be seeing them live! Very excited. The Season is only two months away and BNL is three. Can't wait!
