Just because everything is different doesn't mean anything has changed. ~Irene Peter
~ Another kid-free day for me. Ahhhh... (Not that I don't adore my children. But you other mothers can relate to the relief of a silent home and total alone time for a few hours, I'm sure.)
~ Sent them off and finally started that book I've been claiming to read for the past three weeks. So far, it's pretty good.
~ Dealt with a multitude of computer reboots and "fatal errors" this morning. Stupid, old piece of shit...
~ Wondered if I'm the only person that gets those painful zits in their nostrils. The ones you feel compelled to pick at, despite the horrendous pain, making everyone around you that happens to be looking think that you're just digging for a big ol' booger.
~ Managed to get showered and dressed by noon. Go me!
~ Changed my blog template. I'm still not really sure why to be honest with you, but I was so over that other boring one I had.
~ Changed my avatar too. I apologize to anyone who is confused by the changes. However, I have complete confidence that you are all extremely intelligent people that will adjust. And if not, well, it's been nice knowing you. ;) (I'm kidding.)
~ Got a call from some random insurance agency that saw my resume online, asking me to attend an "orientation regarding great job opportunities." Um yeah... no thanks.
~ Spent over an hour trying to match up a huge basket of about 75 (no joke) loose socks into pairs that have been in the basket for months now (again, no joke). Managed to match up about 20 pair, but still have a ton of socks with no mate. Seriously, who the hell is eating them? Because I have no clue where they are. So if someone or something isn't actually consuming them, it's anybody's guess where they are.
~ Got a surprise visit from the electrician, coming to run a few more wires before the kitchen countertops go in next week.
~ While talking to him, I mentioned my idea of prostituting myself in order to bring in some cash.
~ He laughed. Wasn't so sure how to take that.
~ Was beyond thrilled when Steve asked if I wanted Pizza Hut for dinner. Dude are you kidding me? Does a bear shit in the woods?
~ Wondered who made up the saying, "Does a bear shit in the woods?"
~ Reminded Steve (for the 8 billionth time) that when the children are in the same room as him and he's channel surfing, that he really needs to pay more attention. Because when he's using the arrow button to flip through every channel, even if the Disney Channel that is currently showing "Monsters, Inc." is only viewable for half of a nanosecond, Grace will indeed see it and will throw a fit until he turns it back on. Jackass.
~Managed to get the kids and Steve to bed with little argument and no threats.
~ Drank beer. Lots and lots of good, ice cold beer out of the tap. Ahhh...
~ Wondered where the hell some of you readers came from. Now don't get me wrong... I LOVE you guys! But see, EE, Katherine, Emily, Melissa, etc. all know each other from our mom internet boards. But then there's Tink, Slacker Mom, Pink Rocket, and that lovely chap, good ol' Anonymous, among others. How'd you find us? Are all of you friends with one of us and then found us through our lists of other blogs we read? Did you stumble upon us? I'm only asking because I'll sit here thinking, "Hmmm... for all I know, Tink and Katherine are like best friends in real life and I'm sitting here thinking she's a complete stranger." LMAO! But regardless of where you came from or how you got here, I'd just like to say that I think you all ROCK and I'm glad you're here. :) (But seriously... where the hell did you come from? LOL!)
