You can tell I'm feeling better when a gray and misty morning, with 2 kids that did NOT want to go to school (per Justin, it is actually SUNDAY today, Not Monday! And that he is not going on Friday to make up for me making him go to school 6 days in a row. Think somebody needed a little more sleep last night??), the fact that I woke up at 11:30 last night and finally fell back asleep around 4:00 am, and yet? I am feeling punchy and snarky!! - - Who invented that word, "snarky," anyway? Is it strictly an internet word? Evolved like OMG and "ur" and such? And if anybody knows who started the internet language of initials, please let me know so I can bitch-slap them through the computer, ok? Cuz I hate internet lingo. And, yes. I realize I just said "cuz." It's an infectious disease, this internetese....
See?!?! I feel better!! I just wrote a whole rambling paragraph about silly words!!! And that sounded a bit Dr. Seuss-like, didn't it?
Happy, happy, joy, joy!!!
In fact, I am feeling so much better, that I do believe I will host a party. Right here, right now. Yes. I will jump on the bloggin' bandwagon and host a post for 5 minutes for Mom, the Ultimate Blog Party. Bring it on!
Now. If this were a real party, with, you know, human beings in my home, it would be fun, no doubt, but not the most extravagant. (6 commas in one sentence. Um. Is that legal?) I think I'd throw a bunch of noodles and tomato sauce (homemade, of course. one of the few things I like to cook!) on the stove. Maybe a little garlic bread, but from a freezer bag, for sure. There are some plastic cups with a Sharpie to write your name on, so grab some pop or cheap wine and come on over to the table and chat with me over the chips and salsa. I know! I go all out.
One of the first things about me that you'll notice is my FAbulous new hairdo, which I cut last month to donate to Locks of Love. Yes, you can compliment me all you want. I know it rocks. (I tried and tried to upload a picture, but Blogger is being a bit finicky. I'll have to try after it is feeling less bitchy.)
Ah. There we go. I looooove my new hair-do for many reasons, one of which is that it looks just as great the SECOND day as it does the first. Hence: I don't have to spend much time fixing it!! Every Mom's dream...
Also, you'll notice that the house is a bit banged-up, the carpet is stained, and the floor may be sticky (which I DO try to scrape clean before parties. I swear. It just gets filthy again. Seriously.). But I am not feeding you off of the floor, so you're safe. However, I wouldn't recommend using the 5 second rule here.... I do have 3 wonderful children that are in perpetual motion. What else would you expect from me?
ANYWAY! I tend to be a bit rambling (didn't notice? Hmmm. You're a skimmer-reader, aren't you?). If you want to read more of my normal types of posts, skip the last 3 or 4. I was going through a funk. I'm keeping it at bay with a humongous cup of Folgers Vanilla Biscotti coffee (heavenly) and using my normal outlook of life. I try to look at life with a sense of humor and remember that each day may be my last. That for someone, it IS the last day. For someone, it is a day of joy, a day of pain, a day of sorrow, a day of peace. Living in the moment is difficult, at times. But it puts things in perspective. Life should be full of joys, big and small. There are plenty of things to be upset over, but making small things into huge deals is a waste of precious time. (hence the reason I was so mad at myself all last week! What a waste of a week!)
So. Hope to meet many of the party-goers! Hope to create a new bond with someone here. I have made many, many lovely friends through this blog. I am truly grateful for this outlet of expression, and for this method of meeting new people! Have a wonderful day!
