Yeah, so the kids had spring break this week but that kinda means it was anything BUT a break. LOL. I have been swamped and there have been several days in a row where I didn’t even open my computer (except for the couple times I had actual work) and then it was only for a few minutes. No time to kill doing meaningless things like….oh you know…blogging.
Sometimes I wonder if I should even bother. Seems like the whole blogging thing is dying off. I don’t know if there is more than one or two on my IRL friends that have posted in the last year (or two). Everybody’s just busy. And then I get paranoid and figure that the only people who still read this thing are probably stalkers…hahaha. I laugh, but I’m only half kidding. Half, as in, I know four of you who come here to keep up with us because you’re related in some way. The other four readers…well…I haven’t figured out yet why you’re here. It’s all good though (I hope…lol).
Anyway…since it’s been awhile since I posted (and since I’ve gotten pictures off my camera)…I should probably check to make sure I’m not overlapping information…okay…I’m back. I’ve posted since this picture, but since it was on my camera, not downloaded, let me just share this photo of our adorable one room cabin from our trip to Pigeon Forge a few weekends ago. I was standing in the kitchen to take that picture and in the picture, you can see the corner of the fireplace, the end of the couch, and the bed, so you can see how cozy it was…lol! But it was perfect. I loved it!
Spring break this week, I kept the kids moving…best way to keep mom’s hair all in her head…lol. Then I took them to a kid’s museum a couple of towns over and then to mawmaw for the rest of the week. And you’d think with the kids gone for 3.5 days, it would be home free for me, right? Nope…not with the
slavedriver I mean, awesome -- hubby around!!! hahahaha
These are pics from the kids museum…they LOVED this kid sized grocery store!
And puppet show
And of course, I did a lot of outside work this week. This is my dad’s rain gutter garden box contraption, which holds my herbs (so far only a couple basil plants are visible)! LOL. I painted it dark grey and now it looks less like cinder blocks, gutter, recycled 2 liter bottles, and 2x4s (although of course, there’s nothing wrong with ANY of those things) and more like a unique set of window boxes…haha. I’m proud of my daddy, he can make anything work! It might not always look fancy, but it usually works! That’s what I have my daddy for…to make it work…the fancy is my job.
Also my job is to battle the OCD that would like to take over. Do you know how TEMPTED I was to go back and make all those popsicle stick labels perfectly lined up at the same angles for the picture? I forced myself to resist. I won. You can look at the picture and tell which “I” that was (the OCD I or the resisting I). LOL!
I’m really tired and that makes for bad blogging, so I’m gonna hop off here an hit the hay. Thanks for enduring. =)
