A violet bobcat in the teal elephant’s pen

Now that I have your attention with that crazy title. A perfectly crazy title for a crazy day. I am very discombobulated tonight. I slept in a little and I was getting ready for school and just decided to skip out today. I was just not in the mood. I called my favorite spa and asked if they had a spot for me. I got an appointment for 2pm. So I decided to get my butt out of the house and so I went and sat at my favorite coffee shop and had the scone for lunch. That was one of the best ones I have ever had. Pear and cranberry with their fresh cream and homemade jam. Yum. I watched my murder mystery on the iPad while working on a design. I am starting to really love going to this little spot.

I then went to the spa to get the pedicure. They were quiet enough that I was able to have the lady do a manicure as well. I was halfway through the manicure and I get this cryptic message from the kiddo….exact words…..and I quote “Fuck, A wrench in the works.” and that is all he said. I was panicked. I was imagining that he had an accident or his car had broken down…something bad. Well, I called him and he says to me. “Did you read my text?” I said “Yes”, “Did you see the text I just sent you?” I then checked it and what do you know it is an offer of admittance to his #1 school NYU. Oh great. I was trying to come to grips with Boston and now…..oh Lord help me. He has 72 hours to decide. This has thrown us for a loop. We had literally just received the Tufts swag, that we had ordered, last night. I was just about to put “Tufts mom” cling on my car.LOL…Now what. The kiddo has been walking around with an NYU lanyard on his car key since last summer. It is a thing with kids to wear the lanyard of their dream school. Last night he took it off his keychain and replaced it with the Tufts lanyard. He has a good sense of humor so he has both on his key right now. Oh, the offer is for him to start in the Spring of 2019 but he will still graduate in 2022. The next two days should be interesting but at least my toes are pretty.

My hardware for my little stall arrived tonight. It was delivered to a neighbor a few doors down. Thank goodness my phone number was on the box and the lady called us to pick it up. It is very handy so that I can go ahead and really set up the stall properly tomorrow morning. I am heading down early and I am going to go and set up the stall and then take my baby sister out for lunch for her birthday. I am nervous and excited. This is going to be interesting.

Guess what guys. Tomorrow it is Friday. The weekend is here again. As far as the bobcat and elephant reference I will let you figure it out.
