friday is here the skies are clear the boys were screaming so I can hardly hear
my day is busy goes so fast I'm dizzy and if they keep not listening I'll have a tizzy.
Ok...so...obviously I have had too little sleep, too much allergy medicine and diet coke and I am delirious. That is ok though.
So..yes...allergy season is upon on us my friends. The valley of California is blooming and growing and blowing. I look hardly recognizable...eyes all red and swollen. I was so happy earlier this month...thought I had found the wonder drug and it was over the counter (my insurance--such as it is--is stingy with their meds)!
But, alas, it's welcomed relief is eluding me of late. Such sorrow.
My back yard is a mess (more so then before) and half the house siding is laying in a pile. We finally caved and hired people (my daughter's boyfriend and his friend....what was I thinkinggggg? I am such a believer in don't hire friends unless they are true professionals in every sense of the word...I hope I don't live to regret this)to attack the house. Bran just has not had time and it is at least a year overdue! So...between the banging and the boys wanting to go "supervise"...we have been trying to stay gone.
I am so proud of myself. I attacked my "catch-all room" You know the one...it starts off as a guest room. Then you start placing things you don't really know what to do with but you just CANNOT live without in there. Then, before you know it, you can't walk in there. Your child is missing.....you hear him calling to you...from the direction of "the room". Panic sets in...should you go get a life preserver? Call the fire department? You brace yourself and wade in....pusing aside the piles of art suplies, blankets and stuffed animals. You find him...you can almost reach him...you grab your old girl scout uniform and fashion a make shift lasso out of it...after the third attempt...you catch his left ankle and you know you only have one shot...you pull and you both tumble to safety on the other side of the door. Quickly you shut the door just as you hear a crash that can only mean an avalanche of junk just happened on the other side.
So, yeah....I did it...is is spic and span and organized. PhEwwwww. that was a relief. That room is the bane of my hubby's existance. So...last night...I said...honey....now that you are in...could you please do me a favor??? Mogley (the cat) left you a present in the spare room...it is too gross....I can't get it. Pleassseeee. So he armed himself with paper towels and a bag and headed on back...and I heard him say Holy CoWWWWW! lol. teehhheee. So now I think I have at least two guilt free nights of digi scrapping awarded me,lol.
Now...I need some advice here....my oldest son just turned 5 in November. He goes to school...remember...my teacher and problems I mentioned. Well...they are having a field trip coming up. To go to a high school to see a play. The school is 45 mins away...so that is a bus trip. Then they want to go to the zoo after. When I first learned of this trip...the teacher asked me to go. I asked again if I was still going...she hemmed and hawed and said we would talk about it. Now...people...I am trying to be a cool mom. But I soooooo don't feel comfortable with them taking my child for the day...there won't be a lot of adult supervision..our teacher is kind of...nervous and scatterbrained (though highly intelligent etc). I just sooooo don't feel good about this. NOr does my hubby. Nor does a couple other parents. So...if I don't get to come...trying to think of what to do. Follow behind in my car and sit outside while they are in the play and go with them to the zoo is what I came up with. I don't want him not to go. ARggghhhh. I hate this kind of thing. I dont' want to be overprotective...but come on...he has never ever ever done anything like that without me. What would you do? What do you think? Just curious! arghhhhhhh.
Here is a little something I made as a prize for my mixed bag challenge at SDK: goes with the prize for Oriana's chat tonight (see post below)
I already concluded the first part...but if you reallly want to get it we could work something out...just leave me a comment and I will give you your task ;).
And...as a little freebie for today...I made a sticker border and a regular version of it for you. Enjoy.
