In which she’s the Newark of our family

think it about

Dear Newark people: it’s a joke ok?

How good are purple grapes right? I mean, they’re incredibly plump and juicy and tasty and I hardly ever buy them but I did and they’re awesome and I’m wondering why I never buy them? Of course, I always feel like that about fruit and then I buy some and they’re squishy (I hate squishy and ripe fruit) and then I regret it but this batch is awesome.


That’s not what this post is about but I just got back from spinning and pilates and I was making coffee and had some grapes so there’s THAT thought.  Yeah, I went to work out for two hours, which is beast isn’t it? That’s because I’ve gained almost 15 pounds and I’m at the “enough is enough” phase, which means I need to get my shit together.  I’ve been trying 2 days so far, which is 2 days more than normal so we shall see.  Let’s say that I’m cautiously optimistic.


So it’s finally beautiful around here with weather in the low 80’s and NO humidity so I’m actually in a good mood.  That in itself is unusual.  I wanted to tell you guys about a funny conversation that Kevin, Keely and I had in California so here goes:


Keely:             so basically, I can never sleep


Me:                  are you anxious?


Keely:             I don’t think so


Kevin:             have you tried Tylenol?


Keely:             are you kidding me dad, I’ve tried everything


Me:                  what’s everything?


Keely:             well first of all, I have to take at least 2-4 Celebrex a day because of hip pain and more if necessary


Kevin:             wow, that’s a lot


Keely:             … and occasionally I need a painkiller although I’m basically immune to all that at this point


Me:                  good grief


Keely:             I’ve tried Tylenol PM and it doesn’t work so nothing seems to help


Me:                  maybe you need to quit everything to detox


Keely:             I can’t because then I wouldn’t be able to move due to hip pain


Kevin:             you take a lot of stuff


Me:                  you’re like the Newark of our family


Keely:             did you just call me the Newark of our family?


Me:                  ummmm


Keely:             you just equated me to a toxic place


Me:                  ummmm


Keely:             I have to put that on Facebook


Me:                  why?


Keely:             because you’re probably the worst mother ever


Kevin:             that’s impressive Lynn


And there you are … my entire family doesn’t appreciate me!  Hopefully you guys do!
