Today is not the greatest...


I'm sort of not in a very bloggy mood today. I'm much more in a "take a long hot bubble bath and then crawl into bed with a nice book" mood today.

Unfortunately that won't be happening.

School starts in less than a month and I cannot wait.

Goober will start Pre-K, I'll be forced to wake up a decent hour, we'll all be on a normal schedule. Life is good when there is structure.

I should probably be figuring out a way to cherish this last month I have with my children before they all head off to school. Is it wrong of me that I don't feel like sitting down and doing crafts or planting gardens with them? I'm a terrible mother, I know.... but that stuff just isn't my thing.

They want me to take them to see Space Chimps which looks positively horrid. Bug can't stop thinking about it, though, and asks me at least 5 times a day if we can go see it today!?!?

I have a serious case of the yuckies though so it doesn't look like it'll be happening today. Today I'll be listing auctions and doing more laundry. Because the dirty laundry has definitely outnumbered us and I think it may be organizing a revolution to take over the house. I'm pretty sure it has figured out how to reproduce.

Give them a bag of cress seeds and tell them to draw pictures on the lawn. I do that with toots all the time and she never gets bored. You can usually see the pictures grow after about a week.

And everyone has a "can't be bothered day". It'll pass, and if it doesn't have the bath and book, everything'll be waiting when you're finished.

You are not alone... does that help? In fact, just imagine your unemployed husband home ALL DAY LONG too. See it could be worse! Hee hee!

I've never been a crafting, roll around on the floor, silly mom. I like doing things with the kids, but just more interesting things -- that sounds bad I know, but it's true. I'm embarassed to say that I think Space Chimps doesn't look that bad. My 7 year old and I may go see it this weekend.

I'm with you -- ready for school to start! And yes, laundry definitely does reproduce (especially when you're not looking!).

Thank God! I thought the laundry monster was only at my house. Facing a mountain of laundry will give anyone the blahs. Hope things look up soon
