Well, poop.

Now that my sister is busy with her new baby and all, I have no one to talk to on the phone!! People!! You do not realize the tragedy that this TRULY is! I only clean when I am on the cordless phone.... I do not exaggerate. She and I can talk for 2-3 hours, while taking care of the kids and cleaning the house. Not that we talk that long every day, but at least for an hour each day, during which time I do the dishes, basic clean-up and a load of laundry.

So. Now that lil sis is on day 1 of home with 2 kids and a husband, do you want to know what I did???

Well, it certainly wasn't cleaning....



I managed to save the castle from the "bad guys." Though all I had was a construction guy, a one-armed Boba Fet and a few Little People to defend my "village."



A few smooches. Can't beat that...

I managed to reflect upon the ability of our figurines to coexist without conflict, even though they are from competitive networks.... Why can't the world's human population enjoy the Earth as easily as Mickey and Spongebob share with Leo (from Caillou) and Diego?
Hmmmm... decisions, decisions....
I figure it's never too young to teach that sometimes girls like girls and boys like boys(truly, talk to your kids today)... all to the catchy tune of "I won't, give up!" from those Princess tales dvds...
Yeeeaaaahhhh.... I never did get around to my OWN laundry. I did, however do 6 loads of baby boy stuff. Sniff. Oh! And I sorted it by size and labelled 3 boxes with detailed information of its contents.

Made some red broth soup for dinner. It's simmering away right now....


Yes. I did a bit too much of this....

All that and I managed to freeze my tush off buying groceries. I totally stocked up on cereal cuz I am NOT running out again this week!! Holy moly. My hands are perpetually cold...

See? My selfish sister and her need to care for her family are making my house a wreck and my blog boring. Sigh.... She's lucky that her baby is so freakin cute.

Came over from Blender Kimmy's place - since she's my BFF and she really likes you, I figure I better read your blog!

Will be back!

That's why you need phone BACK UP friends - I have several, so if my main phone buddy is selfishly out of town or something, I have someone else to talk to.
My kids like making the fisher-price dog use the toilet - just like in real life!

I only clean when I'm on the phone too! I figure I can't work while talking (or at least work on anything important), and there's no way in heck my house gets clean otherwise, so I make full use of my phone time.

PS: You accomplished a lot today. Much more than I did.

That looks like WAY more fun than cleaning anyway!

Looks like the day was productive in its own way. Hey, saving the castle from the bad guys is serious heroine work!

Scarlett Wanna Be said...

It sounds to me like you had a productive day. I mean, you played and cooked, and took pictures. It takes me weeks to do all that!

the dragonfly said...

I totally agree...it looks like you had tons more fun than you would if you'd been cleaning!!

It looks like you had a wonderful day! Well, except for the freezing tush part. LOL :)

Seems like you did a lot to me, spending a day ignoring the house isn't so awful.

Hi Tracey,
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I love the photos...wish I had little people. They were some of my favorites when I was a kid. I'm sure your sis will be back on the phone with you before you know it.
