Put some pressure on me and I go into full Lucille Ball mode. That wacky, sarcastic side helps me keep going when it feels like my daily plate is overloaded. I need to laugh and make silly jokes to handle everything on my HUGE to-do list for this Saturday's communion party. In contrast to the elegant royal wedding, I'll be throwing a party that would make Martha Stewart wonder if I know how to even spell etiquette. But that's alright with me. I like things a little wacky and fun. With job hunting, it has been very tense around here. Carefree wackiness is my specialty. Imagine if I had a drink or two. Watching me with all my wackiness, people may assume that I've had a drink. As I get older, I'm starting to get more and more lighthearted when everyone else around me turns serious. I think that it's good for your body and soul to relax and joke around once in a while.
I tried to be a good girl when it comes to healthy snacking. I took the time to wash a bunch of grapes and place them in a beautiful bowl right next to the computer. Instead of indulging in this readily available fruit bowl, I got up and beheaded a chocolate Easter bunny in the fridge. This week, I might as well be wearing a chocolate necklace. Apparently, that chocolate fix will get me through all this preparation. I hope that all that chocolate doesn't keep me from fitting into my one good skirt for the Communion!!!
P.S. Any other Lucy's or Ethel's out there? I could use a wacky buddy on Saturday. There will be a good amount of chocolate on hand. I may have more "Martha Stewart" type guests showing up instead of fun loving Lucy's. I feel outnumbered. LOL.
