Holy Moly!

What a horrible blustery day! As I sit here in my comfy office watching the kids at the bus stop and some very dedicated mommies I think to myself, "Holy moly! I am happy the bus stop is in front of my house."

I'm being a very bad orthopedic patient today. I have a ton of stuff I want to do around the house and oddly enough I don't want to drag a giant black boot with me. So, I'm not putting my leg on today until I have to leave the house. I figure if the Achilles blows I could handle it happening at home, not so much at the Post Office.

Oh, it's a half day for Griffin today. I hope we reach some level of co-operation this afternoon. I have so much to do and really I don't need Griffin's help. Doesn't that sound horrible? He has become quite the Bioncle Builder. The only problem is he likes to dump the entire bin of Bionicles on the floor and spread them around. I have an idea for quick clean up for this that doesn't involve the vacuum. I'm going to lay down a sheet. He's done playing, pick up sheet, dump everything every thing into the bin. Voila! So when the sheets laying on the floor at book club, because I didn't pick it up, everyone will now know why.

To re-arrange of to not re-arrange that is the question. I normally re-arrange the family every 3 months. This gives me the opportunity to deep clean. But with the whole leg thing I haven't done it on schedule. But, I'm sick of the layout. I'm also sick of the couch I got for $20 at a garage sale that I was supposed to have re-covered by now, but haven't because I don't want the house trashed for two weeks with couch parts everywhere. So I've been thinking of moving it into the stupid room, also known as the dining/music/art cabinet/sitting room. It really clashes in there, so I'm confused. Life is so difficult. I must remember to be thankful that I have a crappy un-recovered couch to complain about and a dirty family room to live in.

I also drastically cut my hair. It's basically the same cut I had when Will was born. Love the upkeep. Literally, 3 minutes to cute hair. But there's something not quite right. If I'm not careful I could look like I have a wig on. Oy! I don't think I use enough product. But, I don't want it to feel like a helmet either. I tried upload a picture the thing keep bombing out. So, you'll just have to wait on that.

I hope that you're not trying TOO hard to make things nice for book club. All we really want is to drink wine and chat, not judge your house. It would be better to have Bionicles on the floor than to have you screw up your ankle and cancel the whole thing.

Can't wait to see the new do!
