She's Back, She's Bad

I am going to assume that you all have been missing me terribly.   My ego just couldn't stand it if that assumption were wrong, so if you haven't even noticed that I haven't been blogging, don't tell me.  Your silence in the comment box will let it be known....

Anyhow, before Halloween I was helping to prepare a Halloween shindig at Church.  Yes.  Fun was had by many.   I even had a TWSS moment with some Church people over Jello Jigglers.

After Halloween I took a few days to be depressed over mom's passing.   November 2 is a special day for us where we remember our beloved dead... Unfortunately, mom's passing is still fresh and hurts to contemplate.

Friday and Saturday I was at a Catechist Conference (Conference for Catholic "Sunday School" teachers). It was fabulous.  I went to a two day workshop about Scripture.  I now have a handy dandy outline of the history of the Old Testament to aide me during my Scripture reading, as well as some other cool references.

Sunday after Church I went to see my cousin Katy star in a dance performance.  Okay.  She was in the ensemble, but to me, she was the star.  When she was on stage, who could look at anyone else, she is so graceful.   And THAT is the reason she was dancing in the back row!  (Seriously!)

Monday was Bob's birthday.   We went to the Art Institute of Chicago.   We had a lot of fun.  I think the last time we went there together, we were still dating, so this was fun.

What did I get him?  Come on, what more could he want?



How about you?  Have I missed anything spectacular in your life?  Let me know if congratulations are in order!

That alone qualifies you to be one of my favorite people. Just so you know :)

My life pretty much stopped when you were away. Let's not let that happen again, huh? :o)

I haven't slept in a week, so I'm glad you're back.

Sorry for your sadness over Mom.

Looking forward for "full speed ahead" in the Twittertown with you back on the streets.

yea! She's back!

Stupid question, but what is a "TWSS" moment?

Also, November was 2 was hard for me too right after my Mom died. What made me feel better was to have a Mass said for her that day. Maybe something like that will help next year?

Valerie, TWSS stands for "That's what she said...". It originates with the sitcom "The Office", and is said when a double entendre is uttered.

So good to see you back, Helen. I think the TWSS church moment should be your next blog post.

Where have you been...where have I been? Glad you're back!

And just one question. Did Bob wear one of his awesome hats on your outing?

pip said...

Actually I did miss your posts...nice to see you again.

Yep, definitely missed you! Glad the hard times are also accompanied by good times. God's love is so miraculous and boundless.

Blessings, Helen Joy. :)

Of course I missed you! And my blogroll isn't updating your blog for some reason. Need to check that link. (TWSS)
