Yeah! I'm on Vacation!


This coming week is National Mental Health Care week.You can do your part by remembering to contact at least one unstable person to show you care.Well... my job is done.
Your turn!
Well peeps, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and a very Happy Easter.
Don't be alarmed if you don't hear from me for the next week as I we be terribly busy doing absolutely nothing on my vacation. We decided not to plan a trip anywhere. We are going to take each day as it comes. The only thing we have planned is to take the boys fishing (and pray that the flood waters don't wash us away)
Forrest made me promise to take them to Chucky Cheese one day.
We are planning a hike on Petite Jean Mountain.
And I want to spend a few nights in a Cabin on Lake Catherine in Hot Springs.
My husbands list for the week includes mowing the back yard (which would require us to pick up a lot of crap[literally and figuratively] out of the back yard from the dog. Not only does she poop alot, but she gets upset if we leave her unattended outside for too long and chews things up. She is 4 years old! I think she either gets bored or lonely, but either way, it is annoying. Anyway, I wish you all well.

Well...I'm officially contacting my "One Unstable Person!" This is going to count, right? ;)

Look, all our favorite people are here! :) Happy Easter to everyone (I'll visit soon).

Yes, my dear, I got your email. It was the first thing I read when our internet was restored (3 days without it). I was so glad you wrote because although I felt I had thought of everything, I didn't think of that. THANK YOU!!!!! Don't EVER hestitate to help me out if you see me moving in the wrong direction. I may be older (which you so generously point out all the time!), but certainly not wiser. Thank you again.

Now, I know all the gals here are thinking "What in the heck is she talking about?" Trust me ladies, it's nothing, except sometimes I'm a little naive, and Miss Smarty Pants likes to remind me.

HAVE A WONDERFUL VACATION!!!! We'll chat when you get back. Please stay safe (that storm is crazy) and remember I love ya honey!

HAPPY EASTER

XO Suze

Suzanne said...

"It only takes a moment to fall in love, but it takes a lifetime to keep it burning." that was awesome... totally awesome. i'm going to text Rob that right now!

Suzanne said...

What the hell is Cher talking about. And if she's going to talk about it, she'd better share it. You're here, aren't you? Knock it off. Well, I just wrote a new post. Visit if you have the time. The garden is beautiful this time of year.

Love you. Miss you too. I'll email in a day or so. Trust me! XO

Gig said...

Cece,
Hope you are having fun on vacation!! We miss you!!

*sneaking out of Gigsville*,to see what no good the "Voices" is up to...oh no... he's got the mystery flask out, Suze is sleepy and Robyn has a new apron!! Brian has left town, we're on our own!! We need Bindi to take control...
*"Voices" hiding behind beads snickering*

When you get back, come on over to Gigsville, there is someting waiting for you.

Hugs and love,
Gig

Suzanne said...

Miss you. Hope you're having a relaxing vacation and not reading this. But if you are, I love and miss you.

XO

floots said...

enjoy :)
cheers

Suzanne said...

Handsome Floots is here. Lucky you. Well, just checking in. I know you aren't here, but I miss you. I was just over at Bindi's and she has some great photos up of India and Serene. Serene's a riot and India is stunningly beautiful. Take a peek once your vacation ends.

Before Bindi's place I was visiting Baby Suzanne and had a blast. She has the Free Rice link, so I took the test for the first time. I got to 1,700 before I missed my first word, avarice = greed. Damn. I'm going to have to play that every day (you'd love it). I also took the test she has on her recent post. Bindi scored something like 25. I got 15. I lied just to get 15, but Bindi getting 25 scares the hell out of me! Too funny.

Love and miss you. I'll email with my address in a day or so. Of course I want the book!!! Hope you're having a wonderful vacation.

XO

Leah said...

Hi Cecile,

I too hope you're having the most relaxing ever vacation. My sister and I called each other for Mental Health Day. And I am seriously not kidding you!!!!

Also, although I'm still in TX, I know my book is waiting for me in Brooklyn! I'm so looking forward to reading it with Hedgehog...

Leah

Suzanne said...

HI HONEY!!! WELCOME BACK. I'M OFF TO FEED THE FERALS, BUT GOT YOUR COMMENT AND I'M SO HAPPY YOU'RE BACK! WE ALL MISSED YOU TERRIBLY. I WROTE IN ALL CAPS FOR EFFECT. IS IT WORKING?

GIG HAS SOMETHING FOR YOU THAT SHE DIDN'T GIVE TO ME, SO CHERISH IT. I'M WAITING FOR THE NEXT TIME SHE THROWS CANDY OUT. OH, BY THE WAY, BRIAN'S AOL AND WE'VE CHANGE THE LAYOUT OF THE CAFE IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE A DECENT INCOME. DON'T GET LOST WHEN YOU WALK IN. READ THE PROFILE! INNER VOICES WILL MOST LIKELY BE IN THE LAUNDRY ROOM PLAYING WITH HIS MONEY AND GIG WILL PROBABLY BE LAYING ON THE GRASS THAT HE GREW JUST FOR HER. THEY TURNED OUT TO BE QUIET A DUO.

Why am I writing in CAPS?

LOVE YOU!!!

Leah said...

Cecile, I just finished your book, and it's great. It's a wonderful idea--twins who seem as different as a wolf and an octopus, but are actually as close as two brothers could ever be, each bringing their own special qualities to the relationship. Your illustrations are so colorful and expressive. People, a quick plug here! Buy Cecile's book; it's captivating!

Gig said...

*laying in grass, staring at the stars* I have quit the 'cafe and going out on the racing circuit...gotta go where the action is...LoL

Want to order Book, but would like to have it signed,so how's about that?

Ok, vacation is over!!

*Arms crossed and stomping my feet waiting impatiently for a New Post*

Cecile said...

Leah, Thanks. I am so relieved you liked it. You do realize that when you publish something and you wait for feedback, it is like laying your hear on a railroad track. It is out there fully exposed. Thanks for rescuing it and find it a safe place to stay.

Deb, mom2gumpyandnana@hotmail.com
and we will talk.

Suze,
I got the address and the "shipment" is on it's way.
Oh yeah, and scroll down to the post about my husband and read the red caption under his picture and you will know what Cher was talking about.

Bindi, I hope you are settling in well in your new place. I hope that you are safe and happy. I love you.

Jo,
I'm so glad you stopped by. It always warms my heart to see you here.

Floots,
I hope you had a magical time with your daughter, and thanks for gracing my place.

Jeanetta,
I hope your vacation was as nice as mine.

Oh and lastly, where the Hell is I.V. I KNOW He didn't just dis me and not comment on my post.
*Cecile storms into the cafe and snatches the mystery flask out of I.V.'s hand and beats him over the head with it.*
