Do we have way too many things?

I'm afraid so.

Bookcases -- literally -- full of video tapes, for example. And DVDs. And piles and piles of CDs. Some cool and interesting pieces of art, too. Office supplies that many medium-sized offices would envy! (grin) Books and more books. Magazines, galore. Exercise equipment. TVs. (It used to be quite a joke about how many TVs we owned! But we pared that back, getting rid of the one in my bathroom, plus a couple extras we had around... Okay, so we love television!)

I'm going to run the sprinkler in the morning in back to water the flowers, I think...

Marilyn Published Again


I meant to mention this some time back -- certainly before Marilyn mistressmarilyn went on vacation -- but neglected it somehow!

Well, Marilyn never 'toots her own horn' -- so it's rare that others realize just how good she is at what she does. But she's risen to the top of her profession during her career, and I think that's pretty special. It's not bragging to say you work hard and have accomplished things -- it's simply a fact.

She'll be annoyed I've written this. She's a 'behind the scenes' person, who doesn't care for taking public bows. I admit I admire that. There are plenty of people around who enjoy being the center of attention, always seeking the spotlight. And then there's Marilyn who pretty much avoids it! (smile)

I say 'pretty much,' simply because she can't entirely avoid it -- because of the nature of her job. She does TV spots for the organization quite frequently now, and has done radio interviews for years. She's one of those rare people who is both good at public speaking as well as writing, which is a big plus for her work.

Anyway, this is only one of several posts I've neglected in recent weeks! (grin) I'm hoping to play 'catch up' a bit this week. I've got pictures to share, too! (Some from way back in April when we went to Vegas for Marilyn's birthday...)

More later!

Going to the Doctor


Making a quick trip to the doctor...

Collapse )

Marilyn plans to come home early. (Well, depending on when her 3:00 meeting gets over!) Seeing as she went in early, didn't get home until 6:30 last night and hadn't even had a bathroom break today by 2:00, I think that's fair! (smile)
