Here lately

Here lately, I have had zero motivation. I  have 10-thousand things to do. I have 0-thousand time to do anything. I do as much as I can each day and move on. Sure, there is some procrastination. Some laziness. Err downtime. But I do what I can.

Elisa Morgan wrote a book "She did What she could." There are days I wish I could do more. Fact is I don't have the energy after watching my busy toddler all day long. He goes behind me and messes up anything I cleaned up.

I admitted its why I like to mow the lawn. He doesn't go directly behind me messing it up. I see it. Completed. It is done and I did it.

My Kaje can now open doors, dishwashers, stand on step stools, reach the water and ice in the door (no there isn't a lock).

To top that......En has decided now is the time to crawl. Sit up. Feed himself!

I am tired.

Anyone know of a house keeper? Anyone want to baby sit while I be the house keeper? LOL

Food Food Food Food Food

I am currently in the kitchen prepping

5 heads of lettuce (chopping 1- 1/2 for tacos, prepping the rest for hamburgers)
25 tomatoes turning them into slices for hamburgers
12 smaller onions into rings for hamburgers

I also bough 80 hamburger buns and 56 hot dog buns. But whose counting?

Mothers Day

Just another day invented by the greeting card folks! Lol.

This year my kids have an "idea" for Mothers day. They have kept it amongst themselves. They have maybe mentioned it to dad. He asked me what I wanted for Mothers Day.

Well, what I am getting is an upright freezer, I bought two end tables and a coffee table (for cheap that match my tv stand--but I did not buy them from my husband's favorite store :) ) and I am getting my brakes redone on my van.

Sure my kids will likely still want to get me something. I won't take their spark away.

Really Quacky

So our neighborhood is on a forum board. I like it mostly. Then there are those "old bats" that make you scratch your head and wonder.

A few months ago it was some lady who "I pay for a service and I should get it" though it clearly states that on these days service will not be provided. Therefore in my mind you are getting what you pay for. Reality is it was a dumb squabble and it boiled down to the changing of the times. If trash day fell on a holiday they would collect it the next day and not the next scheduled day. Then again I think that's confusing too so I like it just the "next scheduled day!"

Now we are on to a woman who lives in a house nearby to the neighborhood pool. She posted last night about "keeping your kids quiet" okay 1) it is outdoors and 2) it is outdoors. We have kids bottled up day in and day out "use your inside voices" "shhhhh" "no be quiet" but let them outside and they know they can run, jump, scream, carry on and have a grand ole time. Then some old coger gets their panties or boxers in a wad and thinks "kids should always be quiet" and squeeling and having fun is a no no. I bet she claps parents out of restaurants too and makes them feel like they are the size of a thimble when they are doing their best with toddlers.

Really it is people like that I could hope they get 10 days worth of hemorrhoid inflammation. Get over it and buy your next house or rent it away from a public pool.
