After a long week of preparing for and attending my daughter's eighth grade graduation, I am back to blogging. This event took so much time and energy that it seemed as if we were preparing for her high school graduation or her wedding. Seriously, I spent more time looking with her for her dress than I did searching for my own wedding gown, but more about that whole thing this week.

But before I go any further with any of my "stories"....

Smiles everyone, smiles...

I want to announce that mommastantrum was the winner of my Fantasy Island contest.

She will be receiving the lovely gift basket above along with a dvd of the series.

Momma, it's on its way!!! If you haven't visited her blog yet, you really should. It always makes me laugh.

Also, thanks to Jen at listplanit. I won her pdf planner full of lists. I didn't even realize that I was entering a contest when I left her comment. What a nice surprise it was to learn that I was a winner! I'm never a winner- but apparently things in the blogosphere are a bit different than they are in the real world. I love the blogosphere!!

All of you differently organized, note I didn't say disorganized, people should seriously think about checking out listplanit. Jen, who is clearly not differently organized, has designed lists for everything. For someone like me who is "challenged" by organization, these lists, I think, will be really helpful. If I can remember to fill them out, that is.

Well, I'm off to watch Denise Richards, It's complicated. I haven't seen it yet, but given the title of the show, I'm willing to bet that the producer has a really good sense of humor. Having seen some previews, it seems to me as though everything, including how to make it through a sentence without saying Fuck, is complicated for Denise. But what I'm wondering is can you really subtitle a show, It's Complicated, just because the star is an absolute moron? I mean, I think it's kind of misleading to the general public, who believe the word complicated to mean that something is multidimensional, to imply that this woman's life is complicated. To a first grader, addition and learning to read can be complicated, but I don't know that it would be right to describe those things as being complicated in general. Like I said, I'm thinkin the producer is just a really funny guy. I guess I'll have to watch and see. I mean, I don't really have to watch, but I can't pass up a chance to watch someone make an absolute ass of themselves on National t.v.- what can I say, it's complicated.

Tommorow, I will be back with more stories. Until then...
