No, I've not been on vacation or hiatus. In fact I've been far from it. Lets just say that I've been a little busy.
Love the new job, hate the hours. I've learned a new respect for the average Joe On The Street who is very honest. On the other hand I've been introduced to a whole new level of 'stupid'.
Big Red is no longer a left handed truck (can only make left turns). Big Red now has absolutely NO power steering. On the bright side I now have huge toned biceps on both arms.
Grandma Jeannie is missing. Grandma Jeannie was last seen in a cremation box labeled 'Violet Jean' some time shortly after the Southern Oompas arrival. She has not been seen since. Grandma Jeannie and I had our differences and I would not be surprised if her spirit is now laying in wait to haunt my butt for the rest of my time in this dimension.
There are 11 people living in the House of Oompa, Loompaland, USA. 8 of those people have long hair. What is the worse thing that can happen to a household of 11, of which 8 have long hair?
Can you say 'head lice' ?
Interestingly enough Art, the one with the nappiest, knottiest hair, is nit free. I guess his hair was so bad even the lice didn't want to live there. Don't know if I have any yet. I suppose Dickidoo and I will sit around and pick through each others hair later, kind of a primitive, primeval kind of thing... he can eat my lice and I'll eat his. Grrrrrowllllllllll!
I have company for my 'Back To School Happy Dance' this year. My sister-in-law will be in the cul-de-sac with me as the last Oompa leaves for the little cinder block school house tomorrow morning. Well, we'll still have the littlest Oompa (Bubbah) but he doesn't talk yet so he's not so bad.
11 butts go through a whole lot more Charmin than 6 butts do, and that's a fact!
And hazelnut coffee creamer.
But the hug ratio has gone WAY up, and that is the best part of all!
