Pure Glamour...

We're inching up on 3:00 and I have to go pick up The Boy and The Girl from school, but The Baby is still napping. So I run and wake him up to find that his diaper has leaked and he's soaked. I quickly grab a new outfit and diaper and head to the couch to do a quick change. While he's on my hip he's leaking through my own jeans and shirt. Lovely. I reach down to move a pillow from the couch and my fingers sink into something warm and wet. Uh oh.

I look down and it's dog puke! Ack!! The dog puked, then covered it with a throw pillow. Great. I plop the baby on the floor, tell him to stay put, yell at the dog to get outside, while I'm gagging and running to the kitchen to wash my hands in hot soapy water. As I'm washing my hands, The Baby comes walking toward me licking his fingers. Oh no he didn't!!! Oh yes, he did. He touched the dog puke and then licked it. Meanwhile the big kids are still waiting at school and the baby is still soaked.

Acckkkk!! Don't you wish your life were as glamourous as mine? Jealous, aren't you?

The culprit.

The Great Destash of '08....

One of my goals for the new year is to get more organized. (I know, don't we all?)

I've been just tackling small projects at a time and I have to tell ya, it feels GREAT!

One day I cleared out the bathroom medicine cabinets. (In 10 years of marriage The Man has not worn Brut33 cologne, but I found 2 bottles in there. Gross!)

One day it was The Baby's dresser. Whew! That was a big job but it felt soooo great to get it done. Now the only things in there are items that actually *fit* him. What a strange concept, huh?

One day I cleared out all of my magazines. You know those ones you tell yourself you're saving to go through them again, but in reality you'll never find the time? Yeah, mine are now GONE! YAY!! Straight to the recycling bin with those bad boys.

These little bits at a time feel so good and are doing so much for my psyche. I just feel happier about it all!

Instant gratification takes too long.

That's my motto.

All Paris... All the time...

The Girl is not known to have a gentle personality. Really, she isn't. And since she was tiny she's been the type to get an idea in her head and then eat, sleep, and dream about it. The obsession with the color purple lasted for 4 years. The Dora obession lasted 3 years. And I won't even get into the Mike Wzowski phase where she swore that was her own name.

Well now it's Paris. Anything to do with Paris, France, poodles, black and white, or the Eiffel tower sends her into a tizzy. So being the uber nice mom that I am, I'm redecorating her room in an all Parisian theme. We're having so much fun shopping for things!

P. U.

Okay so I ordered something from Sephora the other day and while checking out they gave me the option to pick three free samples. One of the items I chose had a really eye catching package and I was just sure I'd love it. It's a perfume called Flowers By Kenzo.

Well it arrived today, I spritzed myself with it and P.U. Yuck!! It smells nothing like I thought it would based on the package! How could they have gotten their image so wrong?

Dreaming of a day that looks like this.

The wind chill outside right now is 1 degree. Yeah. 1. Brrrrr....

There's not much better...

Than a big bowl of popcorn topped with Cavender's Greek Seasoning and Parmesan cheese. Trust me! Yum-O!


Oy, just when I had my hopes up for Spring it's snowing today. Yes, I know that's normal for January but I was just hoping that maybe this year would somehow be different. ;-)

I've already started Spring Cleaning and it feels great!

Now I need a splash of color to brighten up my day. These gray sweats I'm wearing just aren't doing the trick...

Annnnd we're off!

Off to a new blog. This one will be mostly for miscellaneous chatter and my pay per post posts. Whew, that was a mouthful!
