"Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile way and you have their shoes." ~Author Unknown

~ Woke up feeling like I had only slept 2 hours, when in reality, I got a good 7.

~ Felt better after practically chugging three quarters of a pot of coffee.

~ Wanted to kick Steve in the nuts when he told the girls they could go outside today since it was supposed to be nice until at least lunchtime. Yeah buddy, easy for you to say since I'll be the one that takes them outside. Fucker.

~ Got this weird cleaning bug up my ass and started cleaning like a madwoman. I even sucked all the stuff out of the cracks in the hardwood floors and got the dust bunnies out of the corners of the ceilings.

~ Finally packed up the computer scanner that was sitting on a snack tray next to the computer desk. I use the thing maybe once a year and I've come to realize that anything with a horizontal surface in this house just becomes a breeding ground for clutter and junk.

~ Took the girls outside (mostly out of guilt about the fact that fresh air hasn't been very attainable lately due to the cold weather) and let them run around for awhile.

~ Was secretly thrilled when Grace asked to come back inside because her hands were cold.

~ Continued cleaning. (What the hell is wrong with me?)

~ Took Grace back outside while Hannah was napping so we could resurrect the Barbie jeep and zip around the yard.

~ Woke up Hannah and took her outside.

~ Felt like I was in the Twilight Zone (or Kansas?) when 10 minutes after taking Hannah outside, these ridiculously strong winds came out of nowhere and the sky got pitch black. FREAKY!

~ Ran back inside with the girls before we got blown away over the rainbow.

~ Couldn't stop laughing when Hannah found a glue stick, mistook it for lipstick, and then tried to wipe it off with a Kleenex. Oh my.

~ Couldn't get some of the tiny pieces of tissue unstuck from her lips. Laughed harder.

~ Almost pissed myself when I saw she had gone into the bathroom and put a band-aid on her upper lip and then kept it on for a good hour like it was the most normal thing in the world.

~ Decided that my kids rule.

~ Got a visit from Steve's hunting buddy (whom is Grace's godfather).

~ Was annoyed as all hell when he walked into the kitchen to check out the progress and the first words out of his mouth were, "Wow. It's getting pretty small in here now with these cabinets, huh?" LOL! Yes, numnuts. Chances are if you take a large empty room and fill it with large pieces of wood cabinetry, yes, it is going to appear smaller. Asshole.

~ Got revenge later when he said he liked the painted cabinets and that he had thought we were getting whitewashed ones instead. I said that no, I don't like the whitewashed ones because they look washed out, peach, and blah to me, knowing damn well that he has whitewashed cabinets. Take that, dickbag. (I actually don't mind whitewashed cabinets. But he doesn't need to know that.)

~ Spent hours emailing photos from my ancient home PC to myself so I could log into my email with my work laptop (that gets sent back on Monday) and burn them onto CDs, allowing me to free up space on my home PC and stop obsessing over losing all of my pictures when (not if) the computer fries one day.

~ Got a call from my mom asking if Grace wanted to sleep over. She said yes. :)

~ Took Grace to my parents' house where Hannah decided to sleep over too. :)

~ Came home and told Steve we could have crazy monkey love since the girls were both gone.

~ Ate a fantastic steak and ice cream for dinner.

~ Had crazy monkey love. (Not really, but close.)

~ Decided that as nice as it is to have "alone" time with Steve and non-kid time for myself, I miss the kids when they aren't here.

~ Still haven't started reading that book up there on the right that I claim I'm "currently reading". Um, yeah. I'll get on that soon. I swear.

That picture of Hannah is hysterical. I was LOL reading the play by play. And OMG, in that pic, she looks SO...MUCH...LIKE...YOU!!!!

Wow, wanna come to my house next, it could use a good cleaning! ;)

And uh, yay, for "wild, monkey sex" or what ever you called it. LMAO

Alien said...

I know she looks like me. Poor, sweet little Hannah. ((((HANNAH))))

EE said...

No dork, she's a total cutie!

mama_tulip said...

OMG, that picture of Hannah! LMAO!

I feel the same way about the book thing on my blog, too. I only ever read at night before I go to sleep and half of the time I fall asleep reading so it takes me a really long time to read a book...much longer than it normally would.

I love that you said dickbag.

Yupper. I think it's good to have a little break from the kiddies, makes you appreciate them. :)

The weather yesterday was freaky. Perfectly calm. Then wind, and rain. I did feel like a tornado or something was coming!

Janet said...

I love a break from the kids too but man do I miss them! I think s couple of hours is the way to
go:-) Overnight is way toooo long!

I wonder why the kitchen area is getting smaller????

Love Hannah!!!!!!!!!

Pink Rocket said...

OMG! The picture of Hannah!! Is it bad that the first thing that came to mind was of those "home boys" who put bandaids over their eyebrows or over their zits?

Mary said...

I miss my kiddos too. They spent the night at my friend's house, since they were going to spend the day there today. I got a good 9 hours of uninterruped sleep (!!) but now I miss my munchkins. And I won't get them back til we get back from the funeral :(

Hannah kicks ass! I miss Bryce right now, too. He's with Mike this weekend. mmmmm, ice cream....must go get a bowl.

Melissa said...

I heart Hannah.
