Literally. They are both in possession of plastic squares pronouncing them proud members of Clouds in the Water Zen Center.
So why is the Matron pulling out her hair over holiday gifts for the children's teachers (needed tomorrow) and SANTA'S impending visit -- not to mention the whole CHRISTMAS day fiesta with family and friends?
Probably because your intrepid Matron was born into a family of Scots-- all Catholic. And she married a second-generation Polish Catholic man with -- hold on to your bloomers -- 73 FIRST COUSINS.
These people do not believe in birth control or sleeping.
Here is the Matron at her very own wedding of 400 people, 300 of which were John's relatives. Mostly she walks up to complete strangers with dark hair and good looks and says "Who are you?"
This is why she is currently rocking in the closet. With vodka. Okay, not really the vodka part but it makes her sound so, well, like steel. Which she isn't. It's white wine and after two glasses she starts drooling and crawling toward bed.
Too much family, too much to do. Ring a bell? She'll be here and there and less reliable than the normal daily posts until the big holiday that she does and doesn't celebrate (but Santa and family come!) has passed.
Sound familiar? Cheers, everyone!!
