People will probably never look at me the same after my last post. LOL!

Didn't mean to gross anyone out. That conversation just struck me as very amusing. It really does represent what usually takes place in our house. Which probably makes our family one step away from the loony bin. Ah, but we do have lots of fun....

Anyway, can you tell I'm upbeat? Yep.

I'm bursting with excitement and quivering to the tips of my freshly pedicured toes. Uh, no, I am NOT pregnant.

Because it's FRIDAY. Yep. You can tell it's been a long week when just the thought of Friday sends me into paroxysms of delight. Or maybe it's the white cheddar cheese popcorn I'm munching.

It's Friday, it's a long weekend, I have a heavenly banoffee pie saved up for Sunday dinner, and a tub of Chef Tony's popcorn to last me till the drive home tonight. I also have a ton of feeding bottles to wash, a wedding to go to, and a whole lot of cleaning to do but that's beside the point.

I'm just disgustingly bubbly and happy right now. And I haven't even eaten any chocolate.

Weird, huh?

One of our typical conversations during breakfast:

Faith : (with a proud smile) I swallowed my vomit Mommy!

Me: that's great, baby!

Joshua: You know mommy, sometimes I swallow my vomit too!

Me: Really?? Me too.

Hubby: Yuck! That's gross!

Me: What?? You've never swallowed your vomit before??

Well? It's normal, isn't it??

Let's Play I Spy!

I hadn't realized it's been three weeks since I last posted.

The truth is, I'm drowning. In housework (see above). And in work. With no end in sight.

I've been trying to finish cleaning up the house the past few weeks. Trying being the operative word. Above picture is a sample of the toy area which I was able to partially clean up one weekend. It took me the whole day and I was very very tempted to throw the whole lot out the terrace. But since it would quite negatively affect my mommy polls, I contented myself with occasional bouts of really loud screaming and pounding on the xylophone. It was a good thing the kids were hijacked by the grandparents again. They would've thought their mom was crazier than they already think I am.

I know that other people are not used to having help around. I salute you. I really do. I don't know how you do it. My current household situation is driving me nuts.

Don't get me wrong. I've been liking cleaning up and organizing the house but the lack of time to do it is very frustrating for me. In between a four hour commute, caring for the kids and the day to day housework, well, you get the picture.

So I've been denied my daily pleasure of visiting your blogs and I'm sorry. I'm also sorry for this rant after three weeks of being gone. I just had to get it out of my chest.

*Holds breath* SIIIIIGGGGHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!


I'm okay now.

Time to go visiting.
