Well, it has been a long time. I'm not good at this blogging thing...cause frankly, i'm busy. A family member bought a house in New Jersey and of course I'm the official go to girl for design ideas.

"I want to redo my house, but I don't have a dime to spend"

'Do you have a penny to spare, cause I can frame that and my job is done."

My husband and I have been going over there for the past 3 weekends helping with the painting. Boy what a job.

It wasn't just painting. there was wall paper on the walls (from the 1970's). I told him to keep it and get a couple of lava lamps and shag carpeting and start growing pot.

Wallpaper came down, sanded the walls, primed and painted. Tensions flew. Ice Cream was eaten, paint was splattered,

For all my hard work, I'm getting a little corner in his back yard to grow a tomato plant. He was a south facing garden, and if you know anything about gardening, south is good sunlight. As an Apartment Dweller, I yearn for a garden. A 2x4 patch of dirt to sow, nurture and watch as things grow out of it.

I have to go buy some seeds.

That long since I've had something to say...NO...I've been saying stuff, just not here. If you want to check out what I'm thinking about the topical stuff going on in the world...www.dailycomedy.com

I did the NY Arab American Comedy Festival Shows this week. I could say good things and I could say bad things.....I'll say neither.

I thought people might be interested in what I have to say, but now I don't know what to talk about.
