Can we still do that?

Yesterday I was driving and a lady illegally passed me and cut me off so I beeped at her. We pulled up to the lights, only about a half block later and I didn't do anything, I didn't really care, as she pulled away she gave me the finger. I didn't know we could still do that as grown ups? Well this changes everything!!

Dear Daddy

Yesterday we went to playland and the older kids coined Orange "Super Baby" and 6 of them followed him around for 2 hours. Today we're making muffins, going to the farmers market and then we thought we'd see if we could destroy the house and make mama's eye twitch some more. It's funny! Mama says we should be wild things, at first I thought she meant for Halloween but now I'm not so sure. She also says she misses Saturdays where sleeping in, eating fried bacon and eggs and holding your head are the only things on the menue. I don't know what she means but she says I'll learn.
Love Piggy
P.S. She also says to tell you the trash needs to be taken out and the lawn mowed. What should she do?

And so she wondered, could one thing change everything?

Every week when I go to the grocery store I put something in the food bank, and I started to wonder.... If I have just under 300 FB friends and if I could get half of them on board and if half of those shared it, and if just half of those did it too, what would happen? I've done some rough numbers, if 2 items could make a meal, did we just feed 100 families dinner?

True Confession - Number 4

Until I was in my late teens (LATE) I honest to goodness believe that there was some magical mechanism which made it impossible for the vacuum cleaner to suck up it's own cord. You could go over it all you want but it would never suck up its own cord, voila magic!! I was sorely disappointed and perhaps a bit embarrassed when I found out this was not in fact true.

PS True confession 5 or maybe 6 will probably be my best ever!! I almost can't wait but it's not time yet.(I am NOT preggo!!!! Just incase that was where you were headed with that.)

Better Things

When you start the day at 5am and by 8am are staring lustily at the bottle of wine on your counter the only thing to do at 1pm is have that glass of wine, turn on Sharon (the music) and spend a little time with Amy(Amy Butler Style Stiches-purse pattern book) while the chaos swirls around you.

P.S. I've lost my stats tracker ( I can no longer tell if anyone has visited my page) so if you're here drop me a note and let me know. I love to get comments. If you don't have an account you can select anonymous.


On a scale of one to fed up, one being good and fed up being fed up, we're at fed up plus about six thousand and twelve.

Pink or Blue and a call out fee

Friends of ours recently told us how they have subdivided their home into pink and blue task, pretty self explanatory I think. We never labelled them before but there are very clear pink and blue tasks in our home. Blue tasks would be putting away the dishes and the laundry, mowing the lawn and barbecuing (I can barbecue, I choose not to). Pink would be everything else. Yesterday I flushed a diaper liner and some wipes (we have cloth diapers), I know I shouldn't flush wipes but I did so whatever. Last night I notice it hasn't flushed, so I flush it again without thinking and the water starts to rise and I'm like OH GOSH!!!
So I message the carnie and ask him what I should do, do I flush it again, do I plunge it, what? He asks some questions, what happened, what do you see? I see baby poop, what do you think I see?? Anyway he tells me how to plunge, I'm a chick, I've never plunged before, ew. Our plunger until now has been exclusively used for Orange 1 to suction on his face while running through the house. So I do it and come back to the computer and ask him how much a plumber call out would be. He says at least $100 and oh god what happened. I told him it worked fine and I want to paid $100 plus an extra $80 for the gross factor, this was clearly a blue task, I completed it despite being pink and I expect to be paid for it. I don't care that it was my fault, it's still not my job. He actually paid up on the spot plus gave me a nice tip! I'm going to use it to buy a new plunger. xoxo

Musical Delight!!!!!!!

I've added in music!!! I think every couple days I'll add in a new song. There will be no rhyme or reason to them, just what I feel like sharing. Eventually it will be an entire playlist.  I think it helps the ambiance. What do you think? What do you think of the new look? I'm still playing with it so you can be honest, I'll try not to cry.

True Confessions - Number 3

True confession number 3:
Orange 1's actual name comes from an old Julia Roberts movie. 
Piggy's name:  I lost a bet with a dude in a bar. I was in college, we were at a pub, we were playing playing online trivia and I was sure I was going to win. I promised to name my firstborn son after him if I lost, I was not going to lose. I lost! The big guy vetoed it for the first but I got it in there for number two. I think thats almost holding true to my word. So Mr. Percy if you're out there this one is for you.
Shhh don't tell the big guy. I don't think I've told him.
