I am seriously going to be gone all day, with little weird random stops home. Bring on the caffeine.
All our windows are open to let in the wonderful fall breeze. Only they just let in skunk smell. And now it’s stuck. My nose burns.
I have nothing to report.
An expirement in sleep deprivation
I am so exhausted tonight. I was so sleepy all day yesterday, didn’t get to lay around much. Last night the kids wanted to watch a movie and since our downstairs DVD player is broken I got them all ready for bed (and me too!) and we piled around my bed to watch the movie while I finished knitting that little purple baby hat. Tony called and said he was working until 12:30am at the least,...
Truthful Tuesday, this and that
Laying on the bed in the cool breeze bliss only lasted about 2hrs, instead of all day like I would have desired. Then I had to put on real pants and shoes, run errands and pretend to work childcare at church for an hour. We did not have to go to taekwondo because the little man straight up lied to my face about something I totally knew he was lying about. So he got a spanking and no karate. ...
Not to be a rebel or anything,
but I think I’ll spend the next year or so working my way thru the banned book list. Banned/Challenged Classics Top 10 Banned/Challenged Books by year 2001-2010
I love my libarary!
They have a huge floor display of banned books, right in the middle of the library when you first walk in, and they’ve draped the whole thing with caution tape. I was shocked at some of the books. A Winkle in Time? Captain Underpants!?! The Color Purple? I got “Go Ask Alice”. Banned books. Humph. Take that.
Hannah didn’t listen well at ballet. She wandered off and touched the teacher’s stereo equipment twice. Then she laid down on the floor and pretended to swim. I think she’s trying to get me to pull her out of ballet and then let her take tae kwon do. I’ve got news for her. We agreed to put her in ballet for a year. One year, no outs. After that, we didn’t care....
The sky is white here today. Amazing. I had Tony open the curtains for me, even though it lets in that horrid sunlight, just so I can lay on the couch and watch gold leaves blowing around in the blustering wind against the white sky. I feel as if I am getting better, not coughing as much, sinuses no longer bothering me as badly, but today I have even less energy than I did yesterday if that...

mysevenkids asked: Who needs one of these? At least Bethany, for Christmas? go to Rav and search Chicken Viking Hat. OMG.
One red with golden snitches. One green with broomsticks. This will happen.
Jeremiah suckered me into a coffin shaped cookie cutter and candy mold for various skeleton bits. I crawled off my sick bed and made a frozen pizza for lunch, cause I’m all committed like you read about, and Hannah dug thru the cupboard and ate nerds instead. She’s currently sitting in her panties eating probably stale Corn Pops out of the box because she took all her clothes...
Didn’t sleep at all last night because my sinuses hurt so badly. Got up at 7, worked childcare at church where Mom stopped by and talked about breast tattoos in front of a prayer counselor’s 7yr old so I probably will be getting a reprimanding phone call. Sigh. I feel increasingly like crap so I took a shower when I got home and I’ve lain on the couch all afternoon, except...
I feel like if I would cuss a lot, and creatively, with a lot of conjunctions and convoluted sentences I would feel better. Also, I want the kids to go to bed and the laundry to be put up off the couch so when Tony gets home I can snuggle next to him and drink more beer and watch stupid TV and be happy.
It’s been a bad day. A terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Got up at the crack of dawn to take Jeremiah to the dentist, where he was supposed to have all manner of dental work done but we got the pre-bill for it Wed afternoon and can’t afford it so we were just supposed to have Xrays.We get there and they said, OH, we haven’t been able to get ahold of your other...
So I finally got to watch Thor.
And I thought it was stupid, and made-for-TV-short. Let the unfollowing begin.
That glass of beer is empty already.
Random Thurs night stuffs
I took the kids to Gatlinburg today to spend the afternoon with my grandparents. The picture I posted earlier of all the junk food was theirs. Do they know how to eat or what? I feel like crap. I woke this morning feeling like I might becoming down with a cold, and getting pool water up my nose didn’t help. It feels like swallowing razor blades. I spent money I didn’t have at a...
Home. Tired. Hungry, even though I ate half a box of teddy grams. Only 2 beers in the fridge, I guess Tony doesn’t get beer. Making frozen raviolis. Want to knit. Sisters spending night; kids playing Clue. Diantha trying to figure out Lego Harry Potter on Wii. HAHAHA
My sisters are spending the night.
Free slave… maid labor… someone to play with the kids while I clean house!
We were co-sleepers with our two kids. I breastfed, and no way in hell was I gonna have to sit in a rocking chair half the night. It was easier to nurse lying down in my bed and let the baby fall asleep as I did. I used to panic and be anxious about both of them learning to sleep in their own beds. I don’t know now why I was. Eventually it clicked with them. It seems like with both...
Tony and Jeremiah hug a RedBox LOL!
I made a 93!
93 out of 100 on the first paper I wrote for the comp1 class I’m still doing even though it’s not going to count because they’ve dropped me. However, the class still pops up online so I’m just doing it for the heck of it. This is what my professor had to say: [Your intro is very good, and your thesis is interesting. The idea you present in your 2nd paragraph is an...
