Oh my yall, this
is an awesome book! (Rach, I think you will love it, since our favorite book is the same.) I could not put it down! I was so drawn into the characters. I could totally relate to why they made the decisions they did and it broke my heart at how those decisions affected their lives! You have to read it (and do so my April 12th so you can watch the movie on Lifetime).
This week I was supposed to go to the Gynecologist for my annual showing (that's what I call it, don't you just love that? not the showing, the phrase). But I cancelled cause I just wasn't feeling up to it. I know, I know, bad excuse, but I will reschedule soon, I think.
Today has been horrible. We are getting new windows for our house. People its cold here today and the heat is off and there are men trekking Alabama red clay all on my carpets. Yes, you read that right. Have you ever had Alabama red clay on your beige carpeting? Well for those of you who reside in the northern parts of our great country let me tell you a little something. You may have heard it referred to as "Georgia Red Clay", "Mississippi Red Mud" or "Alabama Red Clay". Its red. That is the soil we have down here in the deep south. When said soil (and I'm not sure it qualifies as soil) hits fabric or carpet it DOES NOT COME OUT. Period. Not with a man named Stanley and all his Steamers, not with Resolve and not with that hyper Italian guy and all his "oxyclean". The Foreman of the bunch looks at me and says "oh I'll get that up". I wanted to tell him that he better get on his knees and start praying for God Almighty to send him a miracle cause his company may be replacing my carpet. Which could be a good thing. I'm not happy but I'm trying to keep this pretty little southern smile plastered on my face. They are almost done. Thank the Good Lord. The bad part is that next week we will be getting a new roof (due to hail damage) and new ceramic tile in the kitchen (due to the original tile not being properly installed) at the end of the month. I might be looney by May. Say a prayer sisters.
