I’m Going to be a Nun until August 22nd

At which time, I’ll revert fully to my loud mouthed, politically incorrect, workin’ mamma mode.

Until then I am preparing for a vacation in Kingston Ontario where I will stalk Dan Akyroyd on my brother-in-law’s motorcycle, drink beer outside at a great bar, cook gourmet food in my sister-in-law’s kitchen and generally blow myself way outta Dodge!!!!!

I am overwhelmed right now with this spiritually heavy heart that I have. There’s no way to describe it unless you belong to a select few friends who have lived through this with me before. Then it’s called “Audrey’s Bizarreness”.  So much of I see in my little world has me on the edge of my soul’s seat and I’m not sure I’m emotionally equipped at the moment to deal with it.  I’ll have to deal sometime; this thing doesn’t usually let go until I do.

But, I figure nuns have it pretty good:

1. They can stay quiet and no one wants to know why.

2. They can chant at random times and it means something.  It means something to God and that’s all that matters.

3. They have cool head gear! Covers up all the questions about when they last got the highlights touched up.

4. They never have to have sex.

5. They don’t have to worry about what to wear.

6. They all have the names given to them by the Order instead of their parents which is decidedly cool.

 

No respect meant to the Sisters of the world, but lately I’ve been wondering if I wouldn’t benefit from a week away in the company of silence. Yes, you’re right, I’d go completely bonkers!!!  But my spirit might settle and get some clarification before I’m done.

I’ll check with Dan while I’m up north.
