Kitchen. This is where I seem to be spending most of my time here lately. The funny thing is that I don't do a lot of cooking. Subvet uses his nights on the weekend to make some meat and veggies for us for the week. Mostly I'm just heating and fixing and feeding and cleaning and sweeping and moping and doing laundry (it's in the kitchen too). The old addage about barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen isn't too far from the truth. :-) The funny thing is my kitchen is the only room in the house that looks just like it did when we moved in. I've never decided on what to do with it, so it sits. It's got a fairly cute border and curtains. And Subvet won't let me paint the cabinets so I really can't come up with a good alternative. I'd love to paint the cabinets a light color with stensils in the middle of each and paint the walls a slightly darker color......or any of several other scenarios depending on how much money I'm dreaming with. :-) But, for now I spend a good portion of my time in a room I didn't decorate....
L is for Lovely Little Lite-brite (remember those?)
I took this picture today. Can you guess what the high is today based on her outfit? 84. yup Perfectly ridiculous.
Cute outfit though huh? And if it wasn't for this heat wave she'd never wear it.
Laundry. Laundry is strange. It's never "done". Ever. As soon as you get everything washed, dried, folded, and put away...you take off your clothes and poof. There's more laundry to do. Of course, I never get everything washed, dried, folded and put away all on the same day. Takes me on average 3-4 days to get all those steps done (sometimes longer)...and by then, guess what!.... the hamper's full.
Marriage. I love being married. I really do. I had a rather lonely childhood and the fact that there is someone around daily who (most of the time) wants to talk to me is a real thrill. And we talk a LOT. We talk about anything and everything, from do the Wiggles really play their instruments, to how many guns we're gonna buy if Hilary gets the nomination (ie before she takes away our right to bear arms), and everything in between. Just knowing that there is a partner there to share all that comes my way is a great joy to me. Besides, he's a really great guy!! :-)
Nanny-nanny-boo-boo. A phrase I never thought I'd want my kids to say. It's actually part of a song in the Christmas program this year. And they are really suppossed to wave their hands by their cheeks and make faces when they say it. It just blows me away every time I get there that I'm teaching this. Then I laugh and go on to the next song's motions. The boys are doing very well and I'm sure will be perfect little sheep, standing exaclty on their "spot" and following every motion. Well, they'll be cute and entertaining at any rate. :-)
TINY TALK TUESDAY is upon us. Go see Mary at Not Before 7 to see more of this fun event.
OK, see the picture? My kids for some reason love to play with water. As in they take a big drink from their sippy-cups, then spit the water out in various ways making a variety of sounds and messes. Sonshine thinks singing and gargling *at the same time* are the height of fun. So, one of the hooligans has managed to get this magnadoodle wet. Specifically the boy on the right side.
Sonshine tells me:
"The big little boy momma, the big little boy needs a tissue. YES! Momma, the big little boy needs a tissue, he has SNOTS!"
Snots are big in my house, what can I say.
