  1. I’m currently fighting the urge to throw that short kid, the dogs, the cat and the big kid out into the rain and tell them to fend for themselves so I can have some silence.

  2. It’s only 10:30 here; I’ve done two loads of laundry, hung them outside, oh yes I did… Mowed the front lawn, used the edger too, painted the pond, didn’t realize it was bright gold, goldfinger gold, now I regret it, it won’t wipe away, called ex-husband, he said to use a wire brush, gave me all kinds of tips about what to do (he’s a contractor) I’m still eyeballing the pond, it’s a monstrosity and super tacky, I’m sure some would say that it well represents moi, put a new bandage on glue gun wound from yesterday, getting ready for my tugboat man and my son to come home next week (you’re the first to know!) now I’m going to clean out the refrigerator, clean the kitchen, wirebrush the pond, turn the compost, and what? you smoked a cigarette? you drink TAB? OMG

    • You have no idea how many people cannot get over TAB is not only still in production but there are still people like me who drink it. Sounds like you have had a productive morning! Congrats on your captain coming home!! I need to get over to your place to see how you burnt yourself. Ugh. Take care of that. I burn myself often enough to have the routine down pat. My latest was a third degree most people cannot even tell I have a scar. xxx

  3. Get up. Eat chocolate. Sleep.
    It’s a tough life.

  6. I will say nothing. Not one single thing.

    tomorrow I will tell you about my ruint day.

  7. Your # 93 activities take up the rest of my morning, after checking and answering email, writing a post or 3, feeding the birds, breakfast, and last night’s tv.

    Then it’s more cleaning and rearranging, and if I don’t have a video that needs finishing, laundry and sometimes more cleaning and rearranging, unless lunch is looming. Lunch and tv, reading, nap, more email, . Snack, local paper, tv. Bedtime.
    The things like teeth, bath, and oddities like groceries and booksales all fit in there somewhere.

  8. WOW! You are organized, girlfriend!

    Do you teach at University?

    • LOL! No, I homeschool my autistic children. (nine & eight years old) I also tutor some young adults.

  9. Thank God I only have myself to look after! 🙂

    This lot reminds me of looking after Chris’s kids! 🙂

    Love and hugs!

    You’re going to hate me – today I got up, played some games on laptop, ate French toast prepared by hubby, checked blogs I follow & replies, napped for 1.5 hours, played more games on laptop, watched some TV, napped for 15 minutes, checked blogs I follow & replies, ate dinner prepared by hubby, played some games, checked blogs I follow & replies & watched TV for the rest of the night. This was my Sunday. During the week I do a bit more – lots of laundry for sure.
