Cheerio to daydreaming

I must start off by saying that I am not a huge Royal Family fan. I don’t get all giddy when they are mentioned, I don’t collect Royal Family memorabilia and, I find it rather distasteful that our American news shows thought it more important to cover more of the day before the Royal wedding than the tragic, epic disaster that took place in Tuscaloosa on Wednesday. But I will save my soap box for later. I have however been very interested in Will and Kate and I guess it’s because they are so close to mine and Jon’s age and come on, what woman/girl do you know of that doesn’t enjoy a good wedding and all the beautiful things that accompany it?! That being said I did not arise at 4 a.m. this morning to watch the wedding ceremony live. I in fact forgot all about it until I turned the t.v. on this morning and saw the bride and groom arrive at Buckingham Palace. I was immediately glued to the t.v. after that! I watched all the recaps, the incredibly huge crowd march to the Palace and saw them kiss, twice!

I imagined what it would be like if it were Jon and I riding in that carriage and fancied how we would look dressed up in such beautiful apparel, waving to our kingdom from the balcony of Buckingham Palace! Silly, I know but still, just sayin! Any way, all my dreams of me and my Prince Charming were instantly dashed when I finally realized there was an awful lot of commotion coming from my kitchen and peeled myself up from off the couch and went to check it out. And this, my friends, is what I get for day dreaming:

They drug their table into the kitchen to have a party, took most of the can goods out of the pantry and even got one open enough to drink the juice out of it. They are lucky it was just fruit juice they got. They took all my pots and pans and bowls out from under the bar, ate half a box of cereal and all of my bagels  are half eaten.

Sure wish I had some of those Royal housekeepers right about now!
