I WAS JUST HELPED BY A PERSON NAMED INDER AT A HELP LINE, A 1-800 HELP LINE. Like big time assistance. It was AMAZING! WEEP-WORTHY.
So, have you felt like I have been out of touch lately? Have I not read your most recent post? Did it take me forever to respond to a comment you were kind enough to leave on my blog? Did my most recent posts seem like they were written a while ago, not fresh, up to the minute/news-breaking? Well, I foresaw this giant busy stretch in my life - so I admit that I wrote several posts and scheduled them to drop - while my real life self was threatening to also drop. As in me, drop down and thrash around like a fish out of water, or more accurately a woman out of her mind overwhelmed.
So the thrashing that could have taken place, but hasn't (YET) could be blamed on a number of things. Some issues pending, that I will share later - if all the stars align, or I will probably share regardless if it doesn't happen because I do operate on an open book policy here.
|Pile of books - with a copy for our house |
so we can remember the cuties.
Thankfully Snapfish had a
$10 photo book deal going.
AND -I have a few more days of babysitting, so I can only do so much party prep in advance. Certainly I would be insane to prematurely Windex the family room and kitchen sliding glass doors because this short, diaper-wearing troop tends to smear and lick their way across the glass like it is a competition to see who can leave the most DNA. I suspect filling poop diapers with impressive size loads is also an on=-the-sly contest.
|I apologize for the teenage boys lurking in |
my way - but this should give you an idea of
the multiple windows readily available for
snot and spit. Remind me to tell you what the
teenagers were up to when I snapped this.
The most time-absorbing project of late - while it should be clean the house so our guests aren't offended by our grossness - is making a graduation video for Ed. Enter Inder my 1-800-number hero. Sadly I have chatted too much. More info on the big project soon in my next post - also known as a great way to procrastinate about housework even though other posts sit at the ready. Teaser: I cannot wait to share with you the photo of yours truly I uncovered in my data gathering. Get excited.
Please do share your top song suggestions for my grad video in my comments. Perimeters: I do not like country music, and therefore will not attach it to my all-consuming project. Not really into mushy tunes either. Counting on you!
