In which i’m heading to graduation


I’ve been a bit remiss with this blog the last few weeks.  Of course, I was traveling and due to my sucky iPad I can almost never post when I travel due to the sheer about of crashes that happen.  Beyond that, the copy and paste function seems somewhat dysfunctional.
Keely told me that I should get a new one (it’s 3 years old which in Apple time is FOREVER) but sort of like my old, old car I have a sense of pride keeping it around.  Nonetheless, it was pointed out to me that if I got a keyboard things would be a lot easier and in summation, I’m an idiot.


On the way home I managed to write 5 posts so you guys will basically be hearing about my California trip for the next several months so that’s a bit fucked up but I decided to break into the stream of posts (I can do that; I have complete control over this blog) and tell you what I’m up to.


This weekend, otherwise known as Mother’s Day weekend to everyone who does NOT have a college graduate because for some reason they always have to have graduation on Mother’s Day.  This way you can spend the entire weekend going from event to event and either roasting (last year) or getting soaking wet (this year) all in celebration of an event that your daughter has done nothing but cry about.


So, as you can tell I’ll be down in Durham for the weekend celebrating my second child, Andrea Lane MacDonald aka Andie, graduating from Duke. As you know she will be moving on to medical school and of course, that’s what she is having meltdowns about.


Thus, the only conclusion I can draw is that getting what you want is just as bad as not getting what you want.  What I want is just a few days without drama.  Is that too much to ask?


Beyond that I haven’t paid my bills, the fish tank needs cleaning out (poor Hercules and Gilgamesh), Tucker needs a refill on his meds, apparently my brick flashing needs to be caulked, we have to figure out Andie’s apartment (I say we because somehow I’m always involved) and I need to get my shit together with this blog.


I hope everyone out there out reads this blog (all 3 of you) bear with me while I get through this period and then perhaps, I’ll have it together again.  At least, with Andie home for a while, I’ll have some good conversations with Andie to put in here.  Well, either that or I’ll be in prison for killing her but actually, that will probably be good blog fodder too!


Have a great Mother’s Day weekend whether you’re a mom or not!  See ya!


P.S. Melinda Gates is the speaker so that should be good

  1. Have fun! Don’t kill Andie. I bet your iPad will work even WORSE in prison.

    How proud you must be!! I hope you have a great time at graduation and a lovely Mother’s Day. My head is reeling with imagined blog posts from you in prison.

    I hate graduations. I skipped the one for my MA. And my other MA. I did go for my husband’s PhD, though. That one was a bit more worthwhile.

    I love reading your blog because it proves that bloggers are normal people with crazy lives and not everything in life is perfect. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Congrats to Andie!
