Flying the ……

…… coop.

Son #3 heads back to Oklahoma tomorrow.
We’ve had a short, but a very, very good visit.
He’s growing up.
And becoming a young man whom I know makes Jim proud.

He did a great job in his classes last semester. He’s now in the Honor’s College.
And still president of his pledge class, with higher political aspirations …… at least in his fraternity.

I’m going to miss him.

So today was a rainy day, which made it good to stay in-doors.
Unfortunately, that also gave me too much free time.
Bad decisions can be made in such circumstances.

I decided to color my hair, thinking that it wouldn’t look all that different.
Completely and utterly wrong.
And I hate it.
It’s too dark, which means that I’ll be stopping at a store tomorrow after a visit to my doctor (just a regular check up after 6 test tubes of blood removal on Tuesday, straight from the airport …. See? I generally make pretty good use of my time.) to see what I can do to lighten it.
Which means that it will most likely end up a lovely shade of green.
Since I’m going to California on Saturday that may be ok, right? I mean, the people there are really “green”, right?

Let’s see, what else did I do today?
Oh yeah, I donated to George’s favorite cause, in an attempt to win a date with him.
If you have to ask, “Who’s George”, then you don’t know me at all and I wonder how you came upon this blog.
He’s just the most fabulous looking man I’ve ever seen.
Except that I’ve never seen him in person.
But who knows? That could all change very soon.
Lololololololololololololololololololol ……. plop.
Sorry, that was me, laughing so hard that I fell out of my chair.
Because me winning a date with George? SO not going to happen.
But I can dream.
And I may become a stalker to the woman (?) who wins.
And not in a good way.
(Is there a good way to be a stalker?)

So I arrived to Houston on Tuesday, later afternoon.
I had lunch with a friend yesterday.
Then Son #2 and #3 and I went out for dinner.
And had a good time.
And a fabulous margarita.
I had the margarita, they didn’t.

And today …… well, you’re all caught up with today.

Yes, I know I still have to write about my experience last Friday.
I’m still getting over it.

But I will do this: As soon as I hit “publish” on this post, I’ll go back to my picture posts and put in captions.
That should tide you over.
A bit.

Hey, it’s something, isn’t it?

Happy Thursday.
