Biting...I mean...Writing the bullet [May. 13th, 2008|09:44 pm]
* My wetbag from goodmama came yesterday. (I would post the one I ordered, except I think I got the last one. Bwahahaha! ) OMG! The fabric! I just want to sit and pet it. I got it for vacation, to put our wet stuff in (duh) but now I'm thinking everyone just needs to get their own and leave mine alone.

* Idol just wasn't the same tonight without Jason Castro. So I spent the last half hour on youtube listening to his non-idol stuff. This one is one of my faves.  So is this

* I got all organized and motivated yesterday and started preparing for our trip - I cleaned out the fridge and cleaned off the green thing (not the one I replaced with the clock; the other green thing. Yes, we had two green things. What of it?) and gathered up all The Boy's stuff and packed it and got out my bag and did some laundry. I was stoked because I thought, Cool - if I do a little bit every night, by the end of the week everything will be done. And then of course tonight I did nothing. Noth. Ing. 

* I just heard a funny clanking noise outside the window, and dh informed me that they have closed off the ramp next to our driveway and are unloading some jackhammers. Dang. It's too late to take a tylenol PM, which makes me sleep through anything. So maybe I will be up all night cleaning and packing anyway.

* I didn't mention Mother's Day. I should have mentioned Mother's Day. It was a nice day. The kids spent the night with my mom Saturday while Husband and I were at the concert (which was awesome) so I went over early Sunday morning and re-did her porch planter (my traditional Mother's Day gift to her) and worked in her front flower bed a bit. We had lunch at my sister's, and afterwards hung out in the schoolyard tossing a baseball with Husband while the children ran around. And I got awesome gifts and cards and stuff, but missed a call from Oldest Daughter, which was a bummer. But overall it was a very nice day.

* I am feeling unusually parenthetical today (does it show?)

I keep telling you that I am the most slacking slacker but you fail to recognize this fact. Here's today's proof: I'm leaving one day ahead of you for the east coast and yesterday I realized that I should probably go shopping for a few things. What things? A new pair of jeans and probably a couple of shirts. Today, I gave myself a pedicure instead. Maybe I will shop tomorrow. Laundry for the trip will be done in the customary night-before-the trip fashion.

Those wetbag thingys are cool!

I'm glad you had a nice Mama Day!

For some reason, reading this comment made me realize I haven't painted my toenails yet.

Oh, no no no. I am the queen of all slackers. I am going camping with the girl scouts on Friday morning and I have done.... nothing.

You're totally way ahead of the game. Have a great trip! Happy Belated Mama's day!

Hey, at least you will be with the scouts, and they will Be Prepared!

I've been contemplating a wetbag, as well. ;D Now I want it even more! Where are you going?

You're right - it was NOT the same.

I'm always frantically doing laundry before we leave for vacations. It would be so much easier if everyone would just STOP WEARING CLOTHES!!! ;P

(I am always parenthetical.)

We are going to Phoenix for Oldest Daughter's graduation and to spend time with the inlaws. It will be The Boy's first plane trip. He is very excited.
