Made You Smile

Posted on

There are those days when you don’t know what you are supposed to do next.  You ponder your purpose. You are stuck.  I know.

So while I contemplate my purpose (or just have a glass or two of wine!), I found some pictures to share with you what really “stuck” looks like. Hope it made you smile! 😉

Proper Priorities

Posted on

Maybe it’s age, maybe it’s hormones, maybe I just think too much, but I don’t sleep.  I can get to sleep, I just don’t stay asleep.  And when I wake up at 2 or 3 in the morning, my mind is off and running!

I don’t know why I just can’t quiet my brain.  I tell myself to knock it off and go to sleep, but I don’t listen to me.  Very frustrating I tell ya!

https://i2.wp.com/media.heliohosted.com/plugins/Clipart/ClipartStock1/man%20carrying%20groceries%201.pngLast night I was remembering one of the first snow/ice storms we had in my neck of the woods.  I was pregnant with my first child and craving cantaloupe and honey-dew melon ALL the time.  My lovely Hubby stopped at the grocery store on his way home to get a few groceries, including the melons.  Our house at the time was at the bottom of the street and our house had the steepest driveway in the neighborhood.  So Hubby had to park his car at the top of our road (because of ice) and walk down to our house.  He managed to carry the grocery bags down the road without slipping and falling.  Once he got to our yard, he decided to walk up hill on the grass of our yard, so not to slip on our icy drive way.

Well, he did slip.  As soon as the grass ended and he had to step on the driveway, he lost his footing.  And as I watched, with horror, as he slid all the way down our driveway, all I was really seeing was the melons bouncing down the hill past him.  My poor cantaloupes!  I mean my poor Hubby!

It occurred to me, as I laid wide awake in the middle of the night, how our priorities change as we get older.  Because now I would most definitely be concerned about ALL the groceries tumbling down our driveway, not just the melons. 😉

Happy New 365 Days!

Happy New Year!

I’ve thought about this past year, and although I managed to get a few projects done, I wondered if I made any sort of meaningful contributions to the world.

After scouring all of 2012’s posts, it became clear I didn’t change the world, but here is what I know… a) I have amazing followers, b) you still follow me even when I share my dorky moments, and c) some of these dorky moments maybe, just maybe, contributed a teeny tiny bit of wisdom, goofiness and laughter. 😉

Developed a revolutionary way of cleaning mattresses!

Discovered flat abs requires more than 8 once-a-week exercise sessions.  I wish I had better news on that.

Took a job as Test Drive Dummy and pushed my finger “through opening”.  It hurts like the dickens, people.

90 percent

Gave a name to a troubling condition called 90 percentitis.   It’s a problem many DIY-ers have when they have too many creative thoughts in their heads at one time.

Told the world to go crazy and buy TWO cans of frosting with cake mix!!

AND, last but not least, gave you way better directions on how to deposit a check at the ATM machine than Hubby gave me.  (The folks behind the security camera are still laughing!)

I hope this New Year brings you happiness, joy and oodles of laughter!

Girl verses ATM Machine

Posted on

My Hubby asked me to deposit a check.  He said it’s easier now.  No deposit slip.  No teller.  Just go to the ATM machine.  The check gets scanned and you’re done.  Got it!  Sound like something I can handle.

I apparently over-estimated my banking abilities.  I pulled up and rolled down my window.  I saw where the check needed to go.  The directions said to “deposit check here”.  So I hung myself out the car window, to reach the deposit slot.  But the check would not go in.  I tried again and again, forward, backwards and upside down, the ATM would not take my check.

Thinking Mom just wasn’t doing it right, my daughter unbuckled herself and climbed over to the front seat.  She was going to try.  Now she’s kneeling on my lap, wedged between my chest and the stearing wheel, hanging out the window herself.  She tried and tried, but the ATM stood its ground.  It would not take my check.

Hubby said it was easy!  What was I doing wrong?  And at this point I realized that I was most like being taped by a security camera.  I don’t even want to think about what we looked liked.  I can only imagine the roaring laughter that would occur if anyone watched that tape.  Mom and daughter, half way out the window, shoving a check at an uncooperative machine.

I almost gave up and drove away.  Then a thought occurred to me.  What if I insert my debit card in to the ATM machine?  When I want the machine to give me money, I use my ATM card.  Maybe that would work!

And what do ya know… The deposit slot opened up and took my check.  And I swear, as the ATM was finally scanning my check for deposit, I heard  snickering coming out of the deposit slot!  I think I even saw the sides of the slot turn up in a slight smile.

I’m only telling you this embarrassing story in hopes that it will prevent any one else from listening to her Hubby about how to work an ATM machine.  He missed telling me a several crucial steps.  Like.. Take out your ATM card.  Put the ATM card in to the machine.  Punch in your security code.  Choose “DEPOSIT” then insert your check.  Those are important!  Like really important.  Otherwise you will just be hanging out your window trying to jam a check into a CLOSED deposit slot!  With people watching.  And laughing.

Answer Me This

Posted on

I’m cleaning my house today.  Joy.  It’s not one of my strengths, at all.  Not even a little.  But bathrooms don’t clean themselves.  While I’m cleaning the yuckiest rooms in the house, the thought strikes me (AGAIN), why do the grosses rooms in my house not have windows?  All three and a half baths in my house are windowless rooms just screaming to be aired out!  Seriously!?  In what world is a bathroom, with no source of fresh air, a good idea??

So answer me this… What would you change or do over if you could rebuild your house?

I love my house, but if I could do one thing over I would definitely make sure all the bathrooms have windows.  The kind that opens up! 😉

What would you change?

Why I Do What I Do

Posted on

Quite often I am asked why I’m always changing things, rearranging furniture, repainting rooms, etc.  Why do I do what I do?   Sometimes I know I’m asked that from people because they just aren’t interested in doing that kind of thing, or they are amazed that I like to do it so much.  But other times, I’m asked in such a way that I think they are pondering the psychological reasons why I’m always changing my home.  Like there is some deep, underlying, yet to be revealed, mystery to what makes me tick.  (Why do I see a lot of heads nodding??) 😉

I know I’m not the only one out there who constantly switches things up.  But for the curious, I will tell you why I think I redecorate/repaint/rearrange a lot…

1.  Because it’s my house and I’m the Queen.

2.  Because no one has asked me to change THEIR house yet. 😀

3.  Because, as a stay home mom, I need more of a creative outlet than picking out shoes and socks for my kids.

4.  Because the only change I like is the change I control myself.  (That may need some therapy!)

5.  Because it’s a hoot not to tell my Hubby what I’m up to just to see how long it takes from him to notice the change.  (Ladies, let me tell ya, this one is loads of fun!)

See?  Nothing odd or strange about it at all.  I just enjoy being creative and my home is my canvas.  I’m sure I’m not the only one who wakes up in the middle of the night to sketch out a new room plan or to move the couch to the other side of the room or to tape paint samples on the wall, right?  😀  Please let me know you’re out there.  Safety in numbers? ;D

Twin Sisters

Posted on

Twin sisters share a special bond.  At least I do with my twin.  We happen to be fraternal twins, but we still have the same closeness that many identical twins experience.

My sister and I can talk about anything.  And we have!  There are times when we spend an hour or more on the phone, just being silly, reminiscing about the past or talking about our families.  My sister lives in another state, so we don’t see each other as often as we like.  So those special conversations really mean a lot to me!

Today, my sister and I had a memorable text chat.  I love how we can get right to the core of our lives and share it freely with each other.  I don’t think she’ll mind if I let you in on our lovely conversation today.  It went like this…

Me:  Hellooooo

Sister:  Hi

Me:  What’s new?

Sister:  I got nuthin… lol

Me:  Me neither.  Good talkin to ya.

I know!  Such depth.  Such feeling!  It brings tears to my eyes.

I can only hope that those who have a sister have a relationship as close and special as we have.  We are so close, in fact, we’re almost telepathic.  I know right now she is thinking what a dork she has for a sister, and she know I know she loves me anyway.  Truly amazing, huh?.  😉

 

Happy Dance Day

Posted on

Back to school for my kids tomorrow!  Woo Hoo!

I know there are moms out there who love spending every single moment with their kids.  Moms who are quite sad when it’s time to let them go back to school.  I’ve met them.  They are crazy awesome.  But I don’t think they love their kids more than I love mine.  I ADORE my kids!  They are the best thing I ever did.  It’s just that I’m happy when it’s time for school to start.  I admit it!  I’m GIDDY!  Tomorrow I will be doing the happy dance, even though I have to wake up at 5:30 to get my high schooler on his way.  Oh happy days are here again…!

Cuz by the end of summer, this is what I tend to look like…

Dear Lord, give me patience, give me strength.

I’ll be okay. One more day. I’ll be okay.

It won’t be easy getting use to our new, very early routine.  But I’m confident all will go well tomorrow.

To Text or Not to Text

Posted on

 

With all the technology we have these days, sometimes it’s just better to pick up the phone instead of sending a text.

This morning I received a text from my BFF asking if I wanted to go on an adventure.  I called her to tell her I wanted to just hang out at home today.  Meanwhile, during the busy morning rush, I discovered the upstairs heat was not working.  I text BFF to whine a bit, and wrote “My heat is broken!”.  She texted back with “why, what happened?” I replied “I don’t know.  I think it’s been broken for days, but no one believed me.  Not coming out til Monday.  May call someone else“.  (meaning the repair guy.)  Apparently BFF thought the text said “My HEART is broken.  Now go back and read how I responded to her with HEART in the sentence instead of HEAT! HA! Being the most sensitive person ever, my BFF was FREAKED OUT!  She just saw me yesterday and my heart was just fine.  She had to wait until her kids left for school to call and see what was wrong with me.  When I answered the phone, she was frantic.  When I told her it was my HEATER that was broken, and not my heart, we both nearly pee’d our pants from laughing.  (My family thought I was nuts because of the tears running down my face!)  So, the moral of the story is… pick up the phone.  If your BFF needs glasses, it could save you a lot of (very funny) grief not to make her read! : )
