I don't know when I've been SO happy for a weekend to arrive (OK...so it was probably last weekend, but indulge me).
The contract thing worked out well for me, but at the last minute, my next door office neighbor got bad news. Her job was eliminated and her only option is to go back into a classroom. My two office doors over neighbor still has a job, but not the one she had before. It was unsettling for all of us, and once again, those of us who were not voted off the island are feeling incredible relief and extraordinary guilt. It's very difficult to know what to say to our friends...
Lorelai went to visit Hanks' mother last night and accompanied her to the local Relay for Life.
Hank and I stayed home, ate shrimp and grits, and watched the season finale of LOST.
Legare finished up his first week of work in Chapel Hill but is bored out of his mind. His friends have mostly scattered for the summer. The boy needs a hobby...everything for him has to have a noble purpose. He reads all the time, but hardly ever just for pleasure. We never could interest him in collecting anything. I told him that he should expand his repertoire of what he knows how to cook...call Habitat for Humanity or any other organization and volunteer. He could start watching LOST on DVD from the first season...
Speaking of LOST...Is anybody else out there saying, GOOD GRIEF!!! How can there be a living John Locke and a dead John Locke all at the same time? Is the living one supposed to be the guy who was sitting on the beach with Jacob as the episode began? If the dude Jacob has been alive for years and years and more years and didn't age, how could Ben kill him? Gracious Goodness Me!
Mother and Ned are still happy as can be. We saw them last Sunday and haven't heard a peep all week. Life is good!
So, what have you been doing??
