Soooo, if you were a fly on the wall in MY house here are a few things you might hear.....

Deanna- Mom, you're out of Diet Pepsi and Dad is out of coffee and ice.

Me- Snot!

The Hubby- You need to go to the store and get coffee, ice and ..... snot???? Wait.... What?? Did one of you say you needed snot??

Me- Never mind.... LOL

Deanna - Hey! The cat's tail is in the garbage disposal.

Me- NO!! You cannot turn it on!!!!!!

Deanna - Can I put tape on the cats' ears?

Me- NO!!!!!!!!!! And not on ANY part of their bodies!!!!!

Colin to me - I was born to be awesome!

Me - Yes, you were, Buddy. LOL

We were sitting on the front porch the other day and Deanna gets up to walk off. Her sock snagged on a nail and she went flying. Then she gives me this look like WHY did I do that to her??? I said, "It wasn't me!!!!" Then she realized it was a nail!

The best part was that she had been trying to walk off in a huff. Hee hee hee!!!

Here's the basic routine of an average day in my house lately.....

5 am - The Hubby wakes me up. I stagger around for a few minutes and then he asks if I'm ready to take him to work. Ummmm.... NOOOO!!! But do I have a choice????

6 am - I am usually home by now and trying to decide if it would be worth it to go back to sleep. LOL

8 am -  Joshua wakes up by himself. This morning it scared the crud outta me! I had been hearing noises all morning and was trying to stealthily walk through the house brandishing a Swiffer as a weapon. You know, just in case some weirdo had gotten into the house somehow. I walk down the hall and look in the playroom, empty. Then I look in Joshua's room, also empty. As I turn toward the girls' room Joshua jumps out of it and screams BOO!!!! I then scream bloody murder. It was a wonder I didn't wake the house!


10 am - I go in for about the 5th time to try to get the girls out of bed.

Lately we have been trying and trying and trying to get all unpacked and the house in order..... SIGH......

I heard myself utter these words the day before yesterday, "If I see another science book I am going to SCREAM to high heaven!" The kids, "OH MY GOSH!! Mom has lost it!!! Did you hear what she said about books????"

OH!!!! And while we are on the topic of books some of my friends had some witty remarks to make about my "Book Shelf Incident".

My Cousin Peggy -"I guess those words really did hurt!"

My friend Wende - "That gives a whole new meaning to being buried in a book!"

Yeah, they are a real laugh riot... ;) LOL
