Detroit is NOT a state

Maxx and I made a pact to stay home and work on taking care of things that need to be taken care of, instead of renting movies etc. (minus Big Brother hours). Sun & Mon were good and we got a lot taken care of.

But yesterday was the best! I got up cut Mother's hair, made deliveries & several phone calls to potential hostess/recruits and actually for once got them ALL done the day I planned to. Then got home an hour before BB-8 so we vacuumed, cleaned the bathroom, did laundry, made dinner, watched BB-8 somewhere in there, finally cleaned a little more and started the blog. I was in bed by a little after midnight which is pretty normal for me.

There's a slight drawback to being so productive when I'm not used to it. It's so exciting that I couldn't sleep last night till like 4:30 a.m. I just kept thinking about what all I had gotten done and how good it felt and how I wanted to do that everyday. I actually tried to count sheep to get to sleep. So w/ 2.5 hrs of sleep after work tonight Maxx and I went to a Reconciling Rwanda Benefit at the Gillioz Theater and got home about 10:30. By now I'm pooped.

We're talking c.c. bills due and Maxx is contemplating paying one online as he doesn't think it'll arrive in time by mail. I'm all "where's it going" and he tells me to look at the bill. I pick it up and it says : Wilmington, DE. I'm like "Oh Detroit" Maxx says "No honey not Detroit, Deleware"

We laughed SOOOO hard. So very long story short I'm extremely tired now and need to get in bed as Gaitha and I are having lunch tomorrow. Have a wonderful evening and KNOW YOUR STATES!!!

Janelle-

Yay for you & Maxx having a blog! Congrats! I surf on Noel & Celeste's every now and again, so it was a pleasant surprise to see that you now have one as well. Maybe this way I can keep updated on your life...

Anyway, your Detroit story reminds me of the episode of FRIENDS where Joey & Chandler bet Ross to name all the states before he can eat...It is freakin' great! The last one he remembers (after like all day and all night)...Delaware!

Anyway, glad that you are doing well and being productive these days!

Excited to read your next blog!
