I'm only posting today because I haven't posted in almost a week.


Today I was scheduled to get my hair cut - which is fast becoming a hobby of mine - by the girl that used to do it back a year or so ago. Julie has cut my hair since we moved to this area until last year when Brian started trading services with a different girl in the salon next to his office. I have paid zero dollars for about 6 years for a hair cut until I went to Van Michael in May with a gift certificate when I got my hair cut short . (Gosh! That's a horrible sentence.) Julie has always given me a great cut and she's quick and loves me and the kids. Or is that supposed to read the kids and I? Clearly my grammar is not working well today. So, the plan was that Brian was going to take the little bugs with him to Union City today while I got some things done around the house and then to my appointment. I had approximately 2,107 things on my to-do list. I got about .046% of them done.
In my head my list looked like this:
  1. Clean the house (all of it!) (which is the category where 2,098 of those things fall)
  2. Go to laundromat and wash duvet (because I don't have one of those fancy schmancy front-loading washing machines)
  3. Go to Barnes & Noble to get some new books for June Bug
  4. Look for a book for me too
  5. Start 30 Day Shred ,.... again.
  6. Shower
  7. Get flash cards for June Bug
  8. Laundry
  9. Quilt
  10. Go to lunch with June Bug and Cuddle Bug (maybe)
The day started well with getting a load or two done of laundry, I cleaned off the dining room table and I picked up the toys and clothes and dirty dishes out of the living room. All before 9:00 when Brian left with the little bugs. Oh! and I got all the bugs breakfast, dressed the little ones and changed 2 diapers. But I quickly realized that there was no way on Earth that I was going to get much more than that done in the 45 minutes I had left. But I didn't give up. I got the half-bath cleaned and... then I gave up. Took my shower and fixed my hair because I can't go to the salon with dirty messed up hair. I know some people can do this but I'm not one of them. While I was in the shower I thought of all sorts of funny things to say on this here blog. I do this quite a bit actually - think of great things to say when I'm nowhere near the computer and then promptly forget what I wanted to say when I actually get time to post something. But instead , I have given you quite possibly the most boring post ever posted in the history of blog posting.

And on a side note: I moved to Georgia from Detroit when I was 11 and starting at age 13 I vowed never to use the "words" "ya'll", "fixin' to" and "big 'un". Well, YA'LL, I've been sayin' "fixin" quite alot lately and I'm pretty sure I've said "big 'un" at least a dozen times.

"LOOK! Squirrel!!"

By-the-way, I did manage to make it to Barnes & Noble. I went looking for some new chapter books for June Bug and for a Jodi Picoult book for me. I considered buying The Fountainhead since June has formed a book club on her blog and this is the required reading but after reading about it on Wikipedia and then reading a few lines of the book at B & N I discovered that my brain is already working in overdrive lately and that reading that particular novel just might make my brain turn in it's resignation and pack up it's bags and head to Miami for the winter.

Which, if we're all really honest, may have already happened.

I have a long to do list today yet here I am blog hopping. Its just that I don't want to do most of what's on my to do list including, and maybe especially, the 30 day shred. In my opinion it is pure evil.
