Not Quite Human

My week started traveling to Denver Monday, training during the day and staying out at night and ending flying back into Atlanta and driving home to Columbia.

I am a freaking zombie!

I like people for the most part. I like to try new things, see new places. And I hate to pass out on great opportunities. But I think I overdid it this week.

Hanging out with people is great....but for 18 hours a day for the past 5 days and not have my "me" time.....not a good mix. I always have to have my sit in front of the tv, watch a mindless show, not talk to anyone, don't think real hard, vegging ME TIME!

So between that, flight delays and brain overload, I am not quite human today. Sentences don't come out clearly, thoughts are jumbled, short term memory is shot, common sense is long gone.

So wouldn't this be the perfect day to meet my blog mom for the first time?
I already feel like I know Bou, so the first meet didn't feel like a first meet.

I was quickly going through Atlanta while Bou and the boys had plans. We literally only had 5 minutes to say hi, make small talk and say goodbyes.

Now usually, bloggers have this great big post on the first meet of another blogger....but they usually last longer than 5 minutes.

What's worse is that I can't even remember much of what I said I was so gone. I'm not so sure that anything that came out of my mouth even made sense.

So meeting Bou was like coming by to see a friend you see all the time. I'm just sorry we didn't get to spend more time together. There will be more opportunities in the future.

The boys? I can blog about the boys after only meeting them for 5 minutes. THAT'S how impactful they are!!

I knock on the door to Morrigan's and #3 peeks out the window, opens the door, says "Happy Birthday" quietly and runs up the stairs. TOO CUTE!

I had 3 beautiful pictures waiting for me with wonderful wishes for a happy birthday.

#1 drew the bug to beat all bugs. This thing has a different weapon in each of it's many hands (are they hands? legs? whatever) Gun, sword, nuclear missile. Maybe this thing can kill all the nasty bugs in my apartment.

#2 drew and colored great dinosaurs. They were long necks, with the trees. I ask him if long necks are carnivores or herbivores. He didn't miss a beat and replied with herbivore. I learned something from the kid! ;-)

#3 (Bones) made a cute card with a cake on it. He's a very impressive artist!

I'm standing there chatting with Bou and Morrigan when the following conversation occurs:

Bones to Bou: Mom? Is that key she's wearing for her car or her house?

Me: *giggling* My dad says it's the key to his heart.

Bones: How do you open it?

Me: Very carefully

Only if he knew that was the style back when Janet Jackson wore her house key on her huge hoop earrings.

I wish I could have spent more time with the boys too. If they had me giggling in 5 minutes, I can only imagine the stitches they could have had me in.

Hey, 5 minutes is better than nothing! Even though it may have seemed I was on some severe drugs.

Oh, I did find out one thing about Bou! She is competitive and evil!! She had Morrigan make the best brownies ever and send them home with me. Damn, I know she wants to win the competition....but that's just cruel! ;-)

Hey! I saw what Morrigan wrote! Sheesh!

Happy Birthday! And I have to tell you, if Mo had it her way, she was sending you home with a 9x13 pan of brownies. I told her, "She'll hate you for that. I would." So she cut it down to 'a plateful'. ;-) I would have eaten an entire 9x13.
