Obsessive "R" Us...

I've been called obsessive/compulsive. I get it from my Mom.  Today we were buying groceries for me.  Mom put 10 12-packs of diet Cokes in my cart.  "Why ten?" I asked thinking that was obsessive.  "I don't want you to run out," my mother replied and she paid for them.

I was on a cereal kick today and bought two gallons of whole milk, and various boxes of cereals.  I especially like Raisin Bran Crunch. 

My brother's second daughter was born this morning.  Dad called me all excited and they are flying out to San Diego in a few days.  Dad offered to pay for me to go, but I decided to stay home.  I told them to email me pictures as soon as they can.

My father's maid and cook is preparing a special fried fish dinner tonight.  The way my parents are hyping this is that it is a big deal and the fish is delicious.  Helen had to go to some fish monger to have the fish especially prepared.  Mom is supposed to call me when supper is ready.  Helen has been slaving over a hot stove all afternoon.

Poor Helen! I admit, I can't stand the smell of fish or chicken. Veganism went to my brain n nose perhaps (:
Ah cute babies. I used to be really awkward around babies until I had to babysit my cousins' kids 24/7 in my late teens! Still awkward though he he.

It's been a long time since you've talked about Helen and her wonderful cooking. I wish I could join you for that fish dinner. Pictures?

So this fish must be something really different. Barracuda? See-Teufel? Norwegian Blue?

It looks like there is going to be snow down around LaGrange. Do you remember the blizzard in March 1993? NWS said 2-3 inches in N GA. Could happen again. :-)
