the tables are turned . . .

so today . . . i have nothing funny or insightful to blog. i am sorry.

i'm having a rough couple of days. don't worry--it will get better--it always does. but my self-esteem has taken a hit and just wants to crawl under the covers and stay there (if it just wasn't so hot!) today i cannot muster up funny julie or sarcastic julie or off-the-wall julie or out-in-left-field julie. or even blog-about-food julie (diandra says i blog about food way too much anyway!)

almost every time i blog, i think about you guys that i know follow, and i try to write something that will make you laugh. because there are enough people out there who are complaining or whining (ok, i know i whine too, but at least i try to make it funny . . . ) or yelling about something. but today it just wasn't happening. i had finally decided not to post anything at all, and then one of you made me laugh!

my friend sherry is a faithful blog reader. she has recently come through some devastating circumstances, and i have great admiration for her. but since i live so far away there isn't much i can do to help, except to write blogs that make her laugh. so that's what i try to do . . .

well, today, she made me laugh. out loud. and then i laughed out loud again. and even now, an hour later, i am still getting a giggle out of what she wrote to me. and today, i needed a laugh. so thanks, sherry, for telling me about your poor sister's mishap last weekend (which was pretty funny, now that she is safely at home,) but especially for sharing the pet society experience. i would have never thought you were capable of showering in some strange pet's tub!

and don't worry--my self-esteem will eventually recover, and funny, sarcastic, off-the-wall, out-in-left-field julie will be back. i would like to say blog-about-food julie is retired, but i'm pretty sure she is not--sorry diandra . . .

My sister and I are proud to bring a smile to your face ... and I was also giggling as Serendipity suddenly decided to try out a strangers shower. Then she fell asleep on his floor when I had to leave the computer for a few minutes. Penelope is the sleeper .. not Serendipity.

Thank you for sharing about the selling of things I grow ... and about the possible unpleasant gifts she may leave for me ... and encouraging me to buy mystery boxes ... :-)

I take a little pill for that every morning! :) Works great! Feel better my friend!
