I'm Ridin the Draggin Wagon!!!

Dear me--I forgot a person could be this tired!!! It's 130 in the afternoon, I've been cooking since 5:30 a.m. and am only on break!!! Delivered food for a business quarterly meeting at 7 this morning--Menu?? Lasagne, Chicken Fettucini Alfredo, Steamed Vegetable Medley, Green Beans Amandine, Spinach Salad w/Citrus Dressing, Cheesecake w/raspberry sauce & chocolate sheet cake. And, yes, everything is homemade & was for 50. Then began making potato salad for 200!!! I have a wedding tomorrow evening about 1 1/2 hours away, and again, it's a full meal, PLUS---I'm making the wedding & groom's cake. (No fool like an old fool!). I wish the catering business would allow me to quit the school job, but not so much right now!!
I'll post some pics of the wedding cake & see what you think. Needless to say, my puppies are barkin!!! Last night I actually broke out in hives! HIVES! I have never, ever had hives!! Can't believe they itch sooooo bad---- Whine, whine, whine -- I just had a cheese sandwich!!!! With my whine!!! How appropriate. Now I am going to sit on my fanny for 45 minutes, and then back to the kitchen.
I just wish I had time to comment on all the great blogs I've been reading!! Love Kari's at Just LIvin Large. Believe me sweetie--I have some pet peeves, and I'm going to share them as soon as this BIG EVENT is over!!! And Shabee Chick sent me back in time & wanting cinnamon toast. I hope you haven't all moved when I finally can spend 6 or 7 hours blogging!!! ha ha ha
This has been such a fun thing to enter my life. I feel like I have all these new friends, and we don't have to get dressed up, be on time, feel good, or anything to keep in touch!! It's better than therapy!!! But not better than anti depressants--give me time. Maybe it will be!!!
So, I'm heigh ho heigh ho ---- love the little guys Kari!!! I'm lookin like I belong to them!!!
Later friends!!!

What About These?????

Just got through reading the hilarious Just Living Large--oh Kari, you crack me up!!! I was thinking back to MY days in high school. I don't think we HAD clubs--small town, small school. I remember we had "thugs" "greasers" "soch's" and "cheerleaders"--maybe those were clubs. I didn't belong to any of them. I had the occasional crush on a "thug" but wouldn't have been caught with 'em! They were the guys who wore the "beatle boots" and "leather jackets" and had a cigarette hanging from their mouth. Oh, and in small towns, there is always a chance of "mixin it up" with the guys in the other towns--thugs always did this. Those that stayed in school usually came to school on Mondays hung over and with bruises!!
So, I was wondering what clubs there could be at the high school now--I work at the school and am not familiar with any clubs (remember, small town). Maybe I'm expecting them to have "club" in their name--could include FFA, Student Council, Cards In Action (aka CIA), Future Educators of America, etc. And this pushed the "crazy" button in my mind. I began to imagine what clubs could be found in this small town high school. From what I have observed, there could be:
Pierced To The Max Club--we have some of those members, they have
piercings in their noses, ears, eyebrows, tongues (I keep hearing that's a
"special" piercing????)

Duh Club--we have some of these too--they are the ones who, after you ask
them questions, look at you like you are speaking an alien lanugage! You know,
you ask, "What is your name?" and get a response like "uh, well, uh, I uh,"
Forget it!

Cow Poop Club--they are usually a part of the rodeo circuit. Alot of these here.
Now, granted, there are some lovely young ladies, and worthy guys who are
Mr & Mrs Rodeo, but come on--the trucks these kids drive haven't been
washed since the last cattle call!

The Fashion of Young Bellies Club--ALOT of these gals here. You know them-
their bellies are sticking out beyond their, hmmm, ta tas and should never see
the light of day. Now in all fairness, some of them DO cover their bellies, but
for crying out loud, is Saran Wrap a new fashion yes yes?

Ok that's just some of the craziness floating around in my head. It's all your fault Kari! You opened up that Pandora's Box!!!
Maybe I'm just toooo tired for words. Have been fighting a migraine the past 3 days---down the neck, up behind the eye, down the arm, good Lord, is there anyplace a migraine DOESN'T affect??? Then, after the migraine subsides, the effects of all the medication taken to rid yourself of it raises it's side effects--constipation, nausea, to say nothing of the migraine hangover. Wonderful---fuzzy head, zombie like days. Add these affects to Menopausal Symptoms 1-35 and I am just a delight to be around!! I hate everybody---I don't remember anybody----I don't know what I'm doing here---aarrgghhhh!!!
Thanks, Dad, for passing on that gene to me. Couldn't have been the mathematic intellect--had to be the migraine!!!
In spite of all that-----aren't you just panting to hear more------I have a business luncheon, a wedding, a reunion, two cakes, and a ladies meeting to cook for all before Monday!!!!! So my feet hurt, my mind hurts, but, hey, everyone likes my food!!!
Can you tell I'm rambling??? It's got to be the migraine hangover. So, I'll close for now. I hope to check back in before I leave for the wedding (an hour & one half drive) on Saturday. Just cross your fingers for me. I'll be sane again one day (Kick in Lexapro!!!!)
