If I were a real or good blogger, I would plan these out in advance, but can I just tell you that my house looks like a hurricane is currently passing through and I'm still in my pajamas and I forced my husband to take all four children with him to drop the older two off at their fancy schmancy (free) arts classes so that I could "get something done" and what I'm doing is writing this? So count your blessings, people!
Please read this hilarious thing that a friend shared on facebook: You look at me like you've never seen a neo-hipster before.
Laugh out loud funny (although it doesn't take much to make me laugh, so I guess you'll just have to judge for yourself. So read it. That way you can get to judgin'. 'Cause everyone knows how fun judgin' is.)
Oh, and have I mentioned that none of my UD friends will be reading this today because they are all getting ready for our 10 year class reunion that starts tonight? Ugh! YOU GUYS KNOW HOW MUCH BETTER PARTIES ARE WHEN I AM AT THEM! It is pretty much a tragedy that I'm not going to be there. In related news, I think I'll need to get some new dentures and stock up on depends because I am so stinkin' old and crusty now.
So Tommy took the kids, like I said, and then sent me the world's cutest picture of them at the lake because he is awesome like that and wanted to give me even MORE time to "get stuff done" and I could NOT figure out a way to get the photo from my phone onto this blog. Because I am cheap and only have a dumb phone and no smart phone and of course no data plan on the dumb phone. So I texted it to my friend Nadia (of Child Mode fame. I know. I have the awesomest friends.) and she emailed it back to me and now I'm sharing it with you because I can! And they're cute! And my hubby is so great!
This weekend there is a civil war reenactment thing a few towns over. My kids can get a field trip "credit" through the homeschool partnership if we go. And it's free. But I just...can't...make myself want to do it! Have any of you guys ever been to one of these things? Is it worth a visit? 'Cause mostly I just want to make apple butter and cover my garden in bedding from the chicken coop.
Warning: If children are looking over your shoulder, do NOT open this link. But if they are not and you are entertained by news articles with titles that include phrases like "a dozen peckers in his pants" then you are in for a real treat. A real treat, my friend. Enjoy!
This looks safe, right? Like if you walked outside and this was happening and all your children and your dogs and your chickens were running willy nilly all over the place, you'd be all "Yep, everything looks good out here!" and you'd go back inside, right? That's what I thought.
Happy weekend, my peeps! Try not to set your houses on fire.
