And Just Like That....

It's summer! The heat has been unbearable the past week.

I've been out of town last week and then spent the rest of the Lenten holiday at home. We did squeeze in a day trip to the beach which was thankful for. See, I originally didn't want to go cause I was planning on doing a lot of house cleaning. I was very obviously demented that day. It was guilt that eventually made me go and I had a great time with the kids.


I got pooped on by a bird at Sunday mass. It was warm and gooey and green! Gross! I wondered about the green color though. I usually see white stuff on cars and windshields. Then my brother told me that particular bird probably had a bum stomach. Ew! Ew! Ew!

Nothing special about this news, I know. Just thought I'd share the grossness.

We bought the kids new bicycles. A Disney princess one (what else??) and a suitably masculine one for Joshua. Those were supposed to be birthday presents for their special day in May but hubby and I thought that with the rainy season kicking off on that month and school being near to starting, it would be a shame if the kids can't enjoy them during the summer. Ergo, they are in bike heaven.


I was supposed to post pictures I took of Faith while she was clowning around refusing to let me do my work peacefully. So I took a photoshoot of her on my camera phone. Darn phone won't connect to the laptop. And I've got too much stuff open to bother rebooting. Bugger!


My google reader is overflowing with unread items. I'm afraid my online time has taken a backseat to work, and, after that, to just spending time with the kids and catching up (a little) with the housework and my books.


Happy Easter! :D

There is nothing creepier than hearing a dog howling (horror film-like) in the middle of the night while you are the only one up. I had to turn up the music on my laptop just to drown it out.

So those energy drinks really work. I took one at 11:30pm so I could work and I was still bouncing off the walls in the car at 7:30am. So I took another one for good measure. Because, well, I still had a two hour presentation to go through.

No warning about the crash when it wears off though. My eyes kept crossing while trying to stay awake. I have now fortified myself with a double caramel macchiato. Two shots of espresso and two packets of brown sugar. If that doesn't keep me awake, I don't know what will.

Sigh. I still have to work this weekend. Bugger.

It's Just Too Early.........

Santa will laugh my ass out of the North Pole. It's only March, for goodness sake!

Yeah, like it matters to the five year old who asked me last night if Santa got his letter....

Right in the middle of......

-- Spring cleaning. STILL. There's too much junk in the house. I am wishing for three whole days with nothing to do but clean. It's official. I've turned into my parents.

-- Treating the kids for severe asthma. Each kid has to be nebulized FIVE TIMES A DAY. Nebulizer = My Best Friend.

-- The busiest time at work. Talk about HELL WEEK. Hopefully, everything will be done by Monday next week. Crossing my fingers, legs and toes.

-- Fantasizing about a day off. Just me and a book. No brooms, mops, and laptops.
