Mix and Stones May Break My Bones

At risk of continuing my recent trend of bitching and complaining, I thought I’d share a few random and ADHD-style thoughts:

  • This is one of  those perfect times of year around here – where the weather has been as close to perfect as you can get.  It’s almost storybook.  I’ve been making a real attempt to get out and notice that, particularly since it is so incredibly fleeting.
    See?  Its like a movie....

  • I once again went into MomBeast mode lately, and managed to completely re-do one of my children’s room in under 6 hours.  For the second time in a month.  I may not have skills, but I have organization, drive,  and speed.  These children better appreciate that one day.
    I even added a chalkboard wall.  Yeah, I can be pretty damn fabulous.

  • I just saw on Amazon this morning that there is such a thing as a “heated eyelash curler.”  WHY IS THAT A THING?  In whose imagination is that a good idea?  Sure, most people are barely competent enough to drive and vote.  Let’s give them a heated instrument to hold millimeters from their eyeball.

    This is what I see happening if I try to use one of those damn things. AND OHMYGLOB GAME OF THRONES IN 4 DAYS!!

  • My  daughter had an awful day yesterday.  Today is a new day.
  • My son’s school did one of those awesome non-fundraiser fundraisers a while back, in which you could basically contribute for not having to go out and sell overpriced popcorn, cookie dough, or wrapping paper.  I gratefully made a contribution.  As a reward, one of the directors took some awesome-sauce pics of Felix.  Score!
    These were all taken by the fabulous co-director at his school

  • This weekend should involve a symphony with the kids and some swimming.  Since Felix is still all about Beethoven (even when it’s Tchaikovsky or Strauss), his head will explode.  It ought to be a blast.

    Felix calls this his “singing gears.”  We’ve watched it hundreds of times.

And that’s it.  I hope to be back to my hilarious self soon, folks.  Happy Wednesday.
