Oh the weather outside is frightful

Finally after a very dry, hot summer we are getting rain. We are, of course, getting it all in one day, but beggars can't be choosers. My pool was about 2 inches too low, getting close to that level that won't let you run the pump and today the rain has filled it way too high, so I will have to dump some water. The storms started with a major hailstorm. DS called me while I was at work and I could hear the hail hitting the house. Thankfully nothing was damaged, though I haven't made it out to check the garden yet. The temperature has dropped drastically and right now it is 65 outside and raining once again. The end of the week is supposed to start another heat wave, so I am enjoying it while I can.
Today starts my evenings alone. I haven't been alone for more than a couple of hours for 19 years and I prefer it that way. It is way too quiet around here. I guess it's good practice for when the kids move out. In the middle of that last sentence my SIL just called and said they were going to stop by. Not necessarily a good thing.
Today I am going to tell you about my honeymoon......no not that part of my honeymoon. I don't remember too much of my honeymoon after almost 22 years other than the things that happened in that honeymoon hotel couldn't be repeated today or we would both be in the hospital, or dead. I am going to tell you about the hotel we stayed in. We didn't have a lot of money so we opted for a small, honeymoon hotel about an hour away. The brochure boasted rooms that ummmm shall I say tweaked the imagination. Round beds, mirrors on all the walls and ceilings, hot tubs in all the rooms, 24 hour porn movies (pay close attention to this one, it will be relevant later), a small kitchenette with everything for 2 and champagne. We arrived at this place and right away were a little frightened by the outside. It looked a little run down and seedy, but not so much that we turned around. We did ask to see our room before we paid. In those days you could make a reservation and pay when you got there. The rooms were a little better than the outside so we decided to stay. The first night I drank the entire bottle of champagne by myself and that round bed spun in circles, or maybe the room did but I didn't try that the next night. The hotel stay was interesting, and gave us a few good stories to remember for our honeymoon. The funny part didn't happen until a couple of years later when a friend of mine was getting married. She was doing some research on this hotel and found out that it had been closed down because THEY WERE TAPING THE PEOPLE STAYING THERE AND SELLING THE TAPES. Yes, somewhere out there probably is a superhubby and me tape floating around. She joked that if they opened back up she was going to ask for the superhubby and me special. The good news is the fact that I am much larger than I was back then and no one would actually recognize me now. The bad news is there could very well be a tape of me flying around out there.
Do you have any funny, or interesting memories of your honeymoon you can share? Just the ones that are ok for public viewing please!

HAHAHAHAHA--well, not really, but sorta. You have often alluded to Superhub's studliness but you never mentioned yourself being porn-star-perfect back in your younger years--HAHAHAHA! You go, girl! HAHAHAHAHA!

On our honeymoon, we decided to watch an "adult" movie because I had never seen one before--don't laugh! I started laughing so hard that I fell off the bed. Yes, in my beauteous peach-and-cream pegnoir set that one of my good girlfriends gave me specifically for the honeymoon--there I am, sprawled out on the floor laughing like a hyena. Which got Bill to laughing. Which came to a screeching halt when we realized I wrenched my back.

HOWEVER, it was our honeymoon, so we PRESSED ON. :) :) :)

I'm here for ya during your alone-ness; if you want to e-mail back and forth, I'm here for ya, girl!

I don't have any funny honeymoon stories. Come to think of it, I don't have any horror honeymoon stories, either. Or maybe I can't remember that far back (23 years, this August). We went to Bermuda so when we weren't in the room, we were sight seeing.

Why don't I have any funny stories? I want a funny honeymoon story. Maybe I wasn't funny until after I had kids.

Me, too, what Kim said. We'll keep you company - here, email, whatever.

I think it would be fun for all three of us to talk together--me, you and Monkling. Or do I have a warped sense of fun? :)

Monkling said...

Okay, that is SO weird. I was just thinking - I wonder if either of you have AIM and know how to do a chat thing.

kim said...

Ahhhh, I just knew it...GREAT MINDS! Yeah, baby!

How do I get AIM and how do I do it? Answer those questions and I'm there :)

I have msn, I had aol at one time but its been years since I signed in. I think I will go try to figure out what my sign in name was and see if it still works. My kids both use aol and I could sign in on one of their names but then I have 27 people trying to talk to me.

AIM is an instant messaging system that's separate from AOL, although owned by them. You can download it at http://www.aim.com/ - then you have to install it and get a user name. You guys have to be able to figure out my screen name.

My main concern would be Katy being on dial-up. Oh, wait. If you have AOL, I think the same screen name can be used. Of course by the time you guys get things all set up, it'll probably be midnight...

Monkling said...

P.S. only people on my buddy list can see me but if you guess my screen name, you should still be able to, even if you can't see me.

Now we're off to walk the dog.

Katy? Katy? Wherefore art thou, Katy? I expected, in your lonely-ness, you would be typing your little fingers off, entertaining us with endless posts of life at Chez Mom22teens. Are we meeting on AIM tonight, the three of us? Isn't being alone awful?
