A friend had this on HIS FB wall… he’s a great man though.  You can tell he loves and respects his wife.  No other man would put this on for all his friends to see if he did… way to go Brian & Misty.  Too cute together.

A man came home from work and found his 5 children outside, still in their pyjamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn around garden, The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house and no sign of the dog, walking in the door, he found …an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was against one wall, In the front room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel, the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pyjamas, reading a novel… She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’ She again smiled and answered, ‘You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?…

”Yes,” was his incredulous reply..
She answered, ‘Well, today I didn’t do it.’

I wish someone would Photoshop me into this picture…

Dang, it’s already 11am.  I’m thinking in a blink of an eye… I have to go back and pick up O from school.  Where did the morning go?  Did I even drink my coffee?  Eat?  Where did my planned nap go?  Fudgicles… I missed that Biotch named “Nap” AGAIN!!!!  That girl is so sneaky.  I swear, tomorrow she and I will have a long, drawn-out, much needed meeting.  We definitely need to get reacquainted again.

Already this morning, I had a short, secret rendevous in my car outside of O’s school with my friend, Crissy.  She’s my new drug dealer.  NO, not really.  But I seriously have a CHARMED SCONES addiction now.  I bought another dozen, because my husband and I had a small animal-esque battle over the last cheddar scone.  Initially, he didn’t even want it.  But at my insistence… I popped a small morsel of warmed cheddar scone into his mouth and that animal almost bit my finger off.  Hahahahahaha.  Luckily, there was s secret bag I had hidden left, so out of the goodness of my heart… I allowed him to share one with me.  Yummy.

After I came home, I saw that the El Capitan was having a Cinderella and Tinkerbell Movie/Breakfast/Pixie Party throughout the month of August and September, so I was busy trying to coordinate a day that would work with our months schedule.  I swear, planning events is like an Olympic event.  It takes such due diligence.  I used to think when other mom’s would be like “let me check our schedule (which included the kids).”  I didn’t get it.  I thought, “wtheezack, what’s there to check?”  But yes, after having a kid and a husband’s schedule to deal with… not to mention extended family… I fully get it now.  I hate saying it, but it’s true, that you don’t know until you walk a mile in another persons shoes.

I swear, I can be the next Mindy Weiss. Anyways, planning took an hour because I had to coordinate with other mom’s as well.  Then, I planned my next MNO with some mom’s from O’s school and my friends outside of O’s school, as well as the Stella & Dot party I’m hosting… and helping my GF, Jo, out with her party. (Not to mention, trying to deal with a company who’s customer service department took 45 minutes to answer!!!).   Party Planning needs anyone?  My girlfriend, JO, and I are for hire.


We had a Sunday funday with some of O’s school friends.  Our friends hosted a swim party in their beautiful home and it was a whole lot of fun.  Husbinator fit right in.  Yep, with the kids.  Haha.  But I swear, kids love him.  It’s probably because deep down inside… he’s like a big kid.  I don’t know where he gets his creative and fun imagination from, but he’s so good with kids.  I don’t know if it’s because he teaches as well… but he just has a way of making the most mundane things super exciting.  I swear, I think he can sell ice to Eskimos.

Anyways, today is proving to be a tiring day.  My ovarian pain seems to be simmering down which is great news.  But I feel exhausted for some reason.  Maybe I should go on strike like the lady above and see what happens to my humble abode.  It sounds like the perfect idea right about now.
