"Hello, it's me again..."

Schuyler Fisk's song, "Hello," opens with these words..."Hello, it's me again......I don't know, I guess I felt like checking in..."

I feel like checking in with y'all. These past few days have been so busy, busy, busy. I've had zero opportunity to visit with you...and truly, reading your blogs is just that to me: visiting. Please give me a while to hang out at your "places," see what's new in your lives, and get caught up. I've really missed each of you, and do not like feeling detached.

If it weren't such a trite and corny thing to request, I'd yell, "Group Hug!" right now. Thank God I am not trite and corny. Cheesy, maybe...but never trite!

For now I will leave you with this brilliant quote from my beloved CS Lewis...

...with thanks to this beloved, who brings me true joy and a constant diet of blog fodder. Just being the teensiest bit Irish with you makes me utterly happy.


p.s. Our new DVR receiver arrived today. Scott is attempting to install it now. I ran from the room when, while trying to assist, he exclaimed to me, "Don't look at me with that tone of voice!" Awesome. I love him.

Please tell Mr. Scott I will be buying him a drink when we visit in honor of tonight. Because that comment? Genius and hilarious all rolled into one.

Not to mention I've been laughing about that pic all night long.

Seriously.

Kristen said...

P.S. Being Irish isn't worth anything if I can't be Irish with you. Ireland better watch out. Two lassies are on their way.

Amy said...

That is an awesome quote.
I'm feeling like you, a little out of the loop.
Glad to "see" you.

Don't you just call the cable people to install those things? Is Lee county to far out there for that?

He better have that thing workin' by tonight.

Heather said...

The funny thing is, I can picture exactly what "that tone of voice" looked like on you!

Better test it out before 9pm tonight.

Just sayin'.

I'm thinking we'll be in Tennessee right about then.

I'll miss you this week. Talk to you soon!

Amy said...

Missed you Lula!

Your guy is awesome :)

Scott certainly has a way with words! Brilliant!!

Brandy said...

Phew! The DVR has arrived. It was tense there for a moment.

And I'm not talking about during the install. Although it sounds equally as pleasant.

I know how you feel, I don't like feeling detached and that's exactly how I feel since being laid off and home most days. Thank goodness for bloggy friends. Welcome home DVR!

April said...

You know, Scott has gotta have some kinda mouth on him.....dealing with you every day! LOL

I'm so excited about your new DVR....and I'm with Michelle....why is Scott installing it? Even in Indianola, they sent someone to put ours in!

Melissa said...

Love C.S. Lewis. Love you. Loved the link to Dancing in the Margins. I needed to see that. I have been spending more time in God's word and it's amazing how it makes the "things" we love so much in this life seem so much less essential. Hebrews is my book du jour. Love. it. Can't get enough of it right now.

Can you feel the love?

Britt said...

Holla for DVR! =-)

Hubs often tells me to "Put those eyebrows away!" and to "stop chewing me out with your eyeballs!"

=-)

Jen said...

Great quote. Hope you get on top of your business soon.

angie said...

Your visit to me today was a ray of sunshine! :)

Shannon said...

I mourn for you no more.

Less than two hours to go... I'm happier than a clam in mud!

SITS Girls said...

DVR... "My love. There's only you in my life. The only thing that's right."

You will LOVE that thing. Endlessly.

Kiss me,
I'm Irish.

Loved your aqua chuck's!!
Amazing. Can't wait to see them
in real life!!

CaraBee said...

I hadn't heard of Schuyler Fisk, but I am totally loving that song!

Yay for the new DVR! Neil and I don't fight much, but attempts to repair or replace pretty much anything in the house are almost guaranteed to cause friction. Of course, I'm always right.

Becky said...

I think Scott and Mike need to have a beer. He is in the process of installing our new computer system (please pray for us all:)

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

Oh how I wish I had a DVR....I've missed you....

Veggie Mom said...

I just LOVE group hugs! Glad you got a new DVR. But don't spend too much time in front of the TV...your bloggy friends miss you!

Nicole said...
