Random thoughts...

Oh where to begin, where to begin? Shall I complain and talk about the tantrum that came from one of my male offspring at the family party on Sunday? About the horrific embarrassment of an out and out hysterical fit from a child that I can no longer physically restrain? No.... Too negative, I think.


How about talking, yet again, about how happy I am with how my living room is looking? It doesn't take much to make me happy, you know! The bookshelves I've picked out, the plans for the new wall decorations and some fake plants (cuz real ones? In MY house? Please...) No... Too much exposure, already.


How about how I got NO SLEEP last night cuz both of the boys slept in our bed, and I couldn't, and I mean Could. NOT. get any sleep? And I'm still wearing what I wore yesterday and then to bed last night? But it's kinda ok, cuz no one saw me yesterday and no one will see me today... and I don't smell. At least, I don't think so.... Not that I care. - No... Kinda gross, and I might lose some readers...


I could brag about Evan's abstract art from yesterday, done in watercolor medium. We decided that one looks like a caterpillar crawling along a fence in the grass, with the sun high above. And the other looks like an amoeba. I kid you not, both Patrick and I thought the same thing on different occasions. I'll go scan it now, and you can tell me what you think. I told him I'm gonna frame them. I think I'll start an art wall upstairs...

Caterpillar in the grass...Amoeba? Bacteria? Cosmic constellation?

The cool thing is that he wasn't being instructed to PAINT something. He just did it. Which is rare for Evan. He likes to be led in art most of the time, so I get really excited about anything truly unique.

Those paintings are really cool! I saw the caterpillar when I looked at it too :)

You can't lose me just for wearing the same clothes for a couple of days. I often do that on the weekends. I usually change my underwear though.

Aww, I am sure you don't smell, cause that would mean I do....no bath and this is the third day....a must today!!!
The art is awesome, I would totally frame it too, and my sympathies to no sleep, I am right there with ya!

I wear the same pants* many, many times before washing them, but all of my pants are fairly nondescript. (*"Pants" in the North American sense, meaning trousers.)
Great paintings. I like the amobea one the most, I think.

I just love those watercolour paintings! Very talented boy you have there.

I also wear the same clothes 2 days in a row sometimes (although I do change into PJs for bed, and change my underwear). But the clothes often go back on the next morning.

LOL! We went through the same lack of sleep thing last night. DH is on a trip so the girls ended up in my bed. During the night one of them kicked me in the head (I think it was Baby Bug) and I ended up having to sleep in their room.

Oh the life of a mother. Highs and lows all wrapped up in a day or so. Great paintings!

That is totally an amoeba! However you spell that, I am an accountant too so that might not help my credibility ;-)

I wear the same thing mulitple days too... it's called less laundry and personally I think we are smart!

We do art every Friday morning and LOVE it. We've studied Picasso, Pollock, Da Vinci, Michelangelo...it's definitely the highlight of the week.

And those paintings rock.
