My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

my olympic sports

So, I had Friday and Saturday nights off....

based on my award winning performances of these two nights I hereby proclaim two new Olympic Sports.


Linen Laundry Marathon.

Friday night Sonshine got a stomach virus. I do believe that over the course of that night I washed every piece of Linen in our house except what was on My and Sugars' beds....

Ended up with the boys on the floor of the living room from 2:30am on laying on an old comforter and pretending to sleep. while I scrubbed thier mattress. Which meant that the only goal I worked on was Gator's footprints as I could do that in semi-darkness.


Sleeping Stretches.

I'm not sure if it was the thunderstorms moving in or just the crazy schedule I keep...but I ended up sleeping well for 6 hours straight Saturday during the day...I got up and went to choir practice and Mass, then when hubby went to bed at 10pm I fell back asleep on the sofa....all dressed and ready to go to the gym HA! HA!...and slept till 4am. I'm gonna blame the cat that was sleeping on my stomach the whole night! She held me down and forced me to sleep!!

Now everyone's off to Mass and I have a little less than 2 hours to myself before they come home and I need to go back to sleep so that I can function at work tonight. In deciding what to do with that 2 hours I've come up with yet a third Olympic Sport that I could take home at least a bronze in....Perpetual Procrastination!!




In case you missed it...Diane had this to say about my trip to the store this weekend...

Just don't reverse the contacts and the bras. You'll have some miniscule clear falsies that aren't very supportive and some very unhelpful blinders. Probably get some strange looks as you'll be the one feeling your way around with saggy boobs, lol. ;o)

I haven't made it to either store yet, but I will keep this in mind when I get to go!

Thanks for the smiles Diane.

Enjoy the quiet...

I'm trying to catch up on posts! lol

Yesterday was spent mostly weepy, as DD had to put down her cat. We got him as a half-grown kitten from the pound when she was 15--and he would have been 17 years old in May. I might just have to post about this.

Hope the ick doesn't make its way through the whole household. Emmy was sick last night/this morning but seems to be fine now. I hope it was just an upset tummy and not a bug. Ugh. That's the last thing I need her to share with me.

Glad you liked my little funny. ;o)
