I’d like to get off this ride now…..I think I might throw up

yellow, glorious yellow! by you.

Forgive me friends for popping in and out and running around like a loon, and not visiting you as frequently as I so want to, it’s just that I have to – do laundy cleanup the kitchen pick up kids take them to haircuts baseball practice go to parent teacher conferences sew on a button feed the cats clean out the litter box work on developing a web site for church need to go the post office drop the van off at the body shop take out the trash exercise buy groceries fix dinner spring clean or set fire to the house plant weed dust vacuum iron prepare for a meeting on thursday make the bed finish some unfinished projects pay fines at library and movie store mail back the netflix movies take out the trash take my medicine (especially that anti-depressant) remember to buy chapstick and toilet paper and coffee (especially coffee) remind the boys to unload dishwasher brush their teeth wear their retainers use deoderant pick up after themselves hug husband make lunch check my march madness roster (i used only the team names and their ranks to make my choices, and i’m ahead so far *snicker*) take time to gloat send thank yous sort through winter clothes sell raffle tickets to help pay for baseball uniforms get flea medicine ……………..        

Updated edit:  How charming that I masked this whine fest with a beautiful spring photo taken by Nate, but if you’ve stuck with me so far here are some reality checks in the same spirit as Blue Yonder‘s real life

My laundry room

    For a moment there I thought your dining room table was the roof of your car and you were serving marshmallows for dinner. That would be a big hit here.

    I hear you, Jackie. First on MY list will be writing a LONG letter to the best blog friend ever. xoxoxox

    This is too funny! Thank goodness for those spring flowers and other distractions that make us happy and help us all escape from the nitty-gritty.

  9. I saw some snipping going on in there!!! Yea!!!

    I’m enjoying my first week of my three week break. It’s Thursday and I have yet to get down to Snippyville. = (

    Oh, and I just ordered a bunch of supplies for Pysanky. Exciting, yes, but do I really need another craft to feel guilty for quitting way too soon???

    Enough kavetching. I don’t have all that boy-laundry to do. EW!!!

    Take care……….jan

    Now that is a set of pics that a mom can relate to! (Although, the top photo is indeed lovely. Is it forsythia?)

  13. You truly have a way of making me feel oh so much better about my life being in basically the same state as yours.
    Thank you, endlessly~
