Where was I?

The Wundrun's are back. I said I was taking a break from blogging and that was true. I really did feel like I didn't have a blog post in me that wasn't bitter, plus I had that damned muvee thing. So here's the deal: I finished the first edit of the muvee about 45 minutes before hopping in the car with the cheeseclan and driving through the night to Dallas, TX.

We dropped the movie off at my mom's house so that she could give it to B., the woman who asked for it, since she was leaving for her winter quarters in Arizona while I was in Texas. Also my parents wanted to see my kids and hug them and kiss them before we ended up in a ditch or gully with the vehicle overturned and flames shooting from gas tank just before the whole thing exploded. (That never happened, except in my mother's mind. They still worry, you know).

We had a cousin's wedding in Texas on Saturday the 13th. Then we visited distant relatives - e.g. my husband's deceased step grandpa's third wife's son (no lie) in Texas and we took a couple of days to drive home.

So, there is a gi-normous pile of laundry waiting for me, and it is a beautiful day. No doubt you're dying to hear about the escapades of Ms. Wundrun in the land o' Bush and I am dying to tell y'all about it. I'll get back here in a bit.

Oh, and I really missed you guys.

Jess, I must tell you that I have been so short on time for blogging... But no matter what, I came here every day!

I felt like a kid whose best friend went on a trip and I didn't know when she'd be back.

Yay, yippee, yay. Jess is here. All will be right with the blog world.

Offline, if time ever permits- you know how to reach me electronically, do I have a story for you.

Welcome back!! Yay!!! Jess in Tex- must hear this as I am wundrun!!! Such a bad joke, but seeing your post has made me a bit giddy.

That and the red wine.

So nice to have you back, Jess!

I was watching Bill Moyers last night, who was interviewing Jeremy Scahill, investigative journalist and author of a recent book on Blackwater.

It made think about some recent posts of yours, particularly this one.

Just post what you care about, and I'll be happy to read it.

Welcome back.

I'm so glad you're back! We all missed you too. Tell your husband's deceased step-grandpa's third wife's son that you won't be back for a while, you have some important blogging to do!

By the way, if you are doing some laundry, can you put in a few things for me? I am all out of clean socks.

Hi, Jess. Glad to have you back.

dguzman said...

So glad you're back! Definitely looking forward to an update on Big D.

And hurray for finishing that ridiculous muvee!

Jess Wundrun said...

dr. z I would love to wash your socks, but be warned I only fold socks quarterly.

matty aw shucks

dguzman I just read on yer blog that you are a relocated Texan! Let me tell you I expected bad things from Texas (tho' it produced you, Molly Ivins and Anne Richards) and was most pleasantly surprised!!

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Giving you a huge hug and a kiss because I am sooooo glad you've come back to us. Yay! Yay Jess!

I'm dying to know: Did you make like a Democrat and cave in to the dvd player in the car? Or did you tough it out and tell your kids, "Boredom is healthy. Look out the window"?

Jess Wundrun said...

Suzy, the republican husband bought the DVD player. I did make them unplug it when we were off the Interstate.

Guess I'm a dyed in the wool dem to give in to the household republican that way.

On second thought, I didn't actually cave as I wasn't given the chance to. The player showed up in the mail because it was ordered from e-bay.

We did read Tom Sawyer together from Hannibal MO to LaCrosse though, if that redeems me some.
