back from Florida
I've just returned from spending several days in Florida with friends who were celebrating a significant anniversary. Orlando is not my favorite place and I would happily never go there except that my among-my-favorite friends Joyce and Bill live there...so what can one do?! It was lovely seeing them and seeing how happily their friends came from all over to help them celebrate.
Unconnected to Joyce and Bill's anniversary was the national cheerleading competition beng held at the Convention Center next to our hotel. And of course the hotel was filled with shrieking, giggling young girls in their cheerleading outfits...slathered with make-up and with glittery eyelids...which, to be honest, I found kind of repellent. Young girls are so gorgeous in their real skin that it seems a shame to paint over it. (But I am sounding like my mother, now).
And today I am back home and, sigh, have to get to my taxes. I've put it off long enough. Moment of truth. I am moving all the STUFF onto the dining room table and no one will be able to eat there until the tax info is finished and mailed to my accountant.
