Ramblings of a tired Mom!

Whew! Where has the time gone? I feel like I haven't taken a breath for a couple of weeks. It is sunday morning and my two little ones are sick so I thought I'd take the oppurtunity to blog about absolutely nothing important as you will see. Mike came and worked on Jordan's room on Thurs. and Fri. so I couldn't really clean my house till he was finished because it gets so tracked up and very dirty. So, on Fri. I dragged my weary body down to the skanky basement to clean up the storage room. Lately when I think of my house my brain feels jumbled up!Ha! What that really translates into is there is junk seeping out of every possible nook and cranny! I literally physically can't take the feeling. Sooo, I dug in and worked for like 7 hrs. Funny thing was I thought it was the perfect day to clean cause trash comes on Fri. and I thought it was Thurs. I'm like piling junk up outside my back door and Jenny comes over(she lives across the street)and says hey trash already came on your side but it hasn't on mine I'll help you drag it across the street. The first bag I dragged down had paint cans in it and bright green paint leaked out in a trail all the way down the drive and across the street! Of course we didn't notice it till it was too late. So, cars are driving through green paint tracking it down the road! It's not like you couldn't tell where it came from cause it led to my back door! It was hilarious! I'm thinking with my luck I'll get fined or something. After all my hard work we went to Pepe's for dinner! It was delicious as usual. Came home and attempted to clean up a little bit. It was a mess around here! Dirt, dust, toys, and junk littered with 5 loads of laundry that needed folded. I always think surely noone elses house gets that bad after one measly day! Finally crashed for the day at 12 AM.
Got up Sat. and went over to help with the school yard sale. They had like 5 people helping so I left and went to get groceries(my most dreaded chore!!) Came home put groceries away.
I decided to try on clothes I had bought on Thurs. I bought quite a few things knowing I would return most of them---and I did! How is it that I like something in the store and don't like it at home? Funny thing is I was determined to have something to wear this Sun. and I'm not even at church--chould have saved myself some grief. After putting together some outfits I decided I needeed new brown dress shoes. Janae and I took off for Lafayette. Believe it or not the first pair of shoes I saw at Shoe Carnival I liked and bought for $8 woohoo! Janae got a pair of Tennis shoes so I got mine half price.
We rushed home and went to help pack up the school yard sale in the great humidity!!!
I went back to Marsh for salad ingredients. Came home, made 2 desserts and a salad, cleaned the kitchen, and surrounding areas(ha)then got us ready for the hotdog festibal(as Jaida and Jalen call it) downtown. We got home at 9 P.M. I folded and put laundry away, got out Sunday clothes, cleaned up more, then crashed!
Jalen went to bed with a 101.7 fever. At 11 P.M. Jaida came upstairs and said her legs, head, and whole body hurt. She only had 99.7 but then had croop at 5 A.M. so that's why we are home. They seem better this morning so I hope it is a short virus.
Jalen wanted to go to the festival even though he really didn't feel like it cause it only comes once a year. about half way through he was crying cause he felt so bad so Jeff took him home. Jaida hurt her pinkie toe on the first bouncy thing they did. She cried and whined and limped the rest of the time. I really thought it was probably ok. Boy do I feel bad this morning---it has a huge bruise on her whole toe and down the side of her foot. It looks like it is broken!! No wonder the poor kid cried.(she tends to over react at times--but this time was for real!)
Well, is that enough rambling for one setting??? You guys probably hope I'm never stuck at home again on Sunday morning huh???!!!

So glad you cleaned, now I can re-decorate my dining room :) I think I bought several of your items from the school's yard sale. Let me know when you have your next sale, maybe I can re-do another room, lol!

glad to hear it! I had some good stuff just had it for a while and was tired of it. Hope you get some good use out of it. I had alot of stuff left from my sale. Like I always say--people tend to by the junk instead of the good stuff at my sales??!! Don't get it!
