Sick, Twisted and Funny – to me

We’ve had some really freaky weather lately.  Have you noticed? You know what I notice? Now that I’m 40, I talk about weather all the time.  All of a sudden, weather is primary in my life.

Anyway, we’ve had some storms.  These storms made me think of last year’s storms.  A couple of them were strong enough to wreak havoc and mayhem.   During a particularly bad night – we woke up to find our backyard a mess.  Another umbrella dead, table upside down, chairs turned over. Pier One cushions torn from chairs – it was ugly. You get the picture – but just in case, I took a picture.

A few months later, we had a nice little family BBQ in the backyard.  It was loads of fun. One of our good friends couldn’t make it – and because I think I’m hilarious – I sent her the below.  Yes it’s two different seasons, didn’t care. Still funny. Well, to me.

Here’s a text by text:

Me:  So sorry you missed the fun – here’s a before and after shot from the party!! xoxo!

Her: What’s wrong with you?

Me: I’m a loser

Her: A big one

Although I wasn’t leaving, I was coming home.  And I don’t live in New York, New York anymore – so my apologies to Frank Sinatra for all this mess.  I’m confusing, but I’m not completely insane. We drove through the city yesterday to get home (when I say “the city” I mean NYC. Always. Forever. The End. You should follow this rule too. It’s the right thing to do.)

We hit the George Washington Bridge just when the sun was poking through amazingly, thick black and white clouds. It was tropical and thunderstormy and beautiful.  Thunderstormy isn’t a word?  It is on my blog.

I took pictures because I knew you wouldn’t believe me unless I had proof. I left my big camera at home so these are my handy iphone pics.  iheart my iphone camera.   I forgot how fun it is.  I hereby promise to use it more.
