Reports of her death are greatly exaggerated. (Sometimes disausted looks a LOT like death. Only smells better.)




This just in over the wire, Vodkamom is STILL alive and (almost) kicking, despite the abundance of turbulence in her life.




She has recuperated beautifully from her total hip replacement, and is, as we speak, preparing to return to her classroom tomorrow morning!  She is quite excited about returning to the land of the living, and was quoted recently as saying, “Recuperating from hip replacement is kind of like house arrest. Except you don’t get to commit a crime, and you have to serve yourself the three meals a day. “

While preparation for her return to school is what’s on her mind, she has also been spending the last two days unpacking the hundreds of boxes of crap she doesn’t need, that were moved along with her furniture to a quaint duplex a mere three blocks from her new school.  Although she brags to everyone she knows that she “could walk to school if I wanted,” we all know that she never will. Teachers are notorious for taking home anything they can carry that they might possibly need the end of the day- even though they never, ever look at it that night.  (That path of great intention….it’s quite crowded, isn’t it??)

Finally, as if she hasn’t enough to think about, she is anxiously awaiting the unveiling of a WHOLE NEW LOOK on this blog.  Her good friend Nap Warden has been working on a make-over, and the big reveal might be tonight…


Stay tuned to this channel for further details…but until then know this:  Mr. Darcy is even more of a prince than we first realized.

Good luck back at school. Now is a good time to return...just a few weeks until winter break and lots of fun activities. Who would want to miss the winter program???? And the teacher's room will be filled with lots of holiday goodies so you can regain any weight you lost during your recovery!

You are going back already?! Wow. Try not to overdo it.....oh wait, look who I'm talking to - the woman who had a hip replacement and moved while still in recovery!

Seriously, try to take it easy. And give every one of those kids a great big hug.

Do me one favor: Lay out your clothes, pack your bag, etc. tonight. Tomorrow morning, the first workday from the new home, isn't the time to just wing it.

Glad to see you...I'm so rarely in the Blue Nowhere anymore, on the rare occasions I can blog hop I look for you (you often make me smile, no easy feat).

Enjoy your new digs!

I hope your return to work is the last bit of medicine your recovery needs. And your prince charming I can't wait to hear more!

When I moved, the movers said to my sister: "We've moved a lot of people but we've NEVER seen one person own this much stuff."

I threw so much out after I got in the new place. And was FURIOUS that I'd paid to move it just 1.7 lousy miles.
