Apparently I've been busy...

I erroneously thought that after I sent my last kid off to school full time this fall my life would be my own.  I would become master of the blogging universe and think  deep thoughts and share them with you all. Well my thoughts are not any deeper and my time alone goes way too fast.  As all of my faithful readers may have noticed, I have not been prolific at all.  I can't seem to write, read or comment.  So what have I been doing with my time?  I am glad you asked...
...celebrating  my babies 6th birthday by adding a new critter to our house and making monster cupcakes.  
Yes I am crazy but that smile is worth it. 

...looking after, worrying about and cleaning up after the Duck family that lives on our block. 

...being campaign strategist for my 8th graders presidential attempt.  
(we lost the vote but it builds character, right?)
...going on a go-cart date with my hubby because I look awesome in a helmet.  
He lapped me three times.  Slow and steady does  not win a go-cart race.  

...collecting Madame Alexander Happy Meal Dolls from my own personal 
McDonalds customer service representative.

...getting stopped by more than one stranger telling me they love my purse.  And feeling just a bit snobbish when I say "thank you. I got in NYC."
 ...getting all my hairs cut. It now takes 5 mins to blow dry instead of 20.  Growing it out and cutting it off is a hobby of mine.  (I am horrible at the self-portrait).

You may add to that list... doing laundry, carpooling, field trips, cub scouts, cooking and cleaning.  You know, the usual.

I saw that purse when I was in NY last, though I oped for a different one. Though with a second look I wish I had gotten that one.

That purse IS awesome. Your hair always looks good. Monster cupcakes are a must in October. Nice use of time, I say!....but I haven't blogged much lately either.

Cheeseboy said...

I hope it is not too weird if I say I like your hair.

I would have voted for your son. I just needed to know where to register.

I LOVE YOUR HAIRCUT!!!

The monster cupcakes.......not so much. But they are adorable, I just don't love green creatures.

I think you need to quit being an overachiever and just get on with blogging!

Charlotte said...

Great hair cut! I read this post but am trying to suppress it- as dreaming of what I'll do with all my free time when I outgrow preschoolers in a couple years is a favorite passtime.

Except the monster cupcakes, those are too cool to suppress.

Peggy K said...

LOVE the cut, love the cupcakes, love the helmet. The laundry...not so much!

Lourie said...

Ooooh! I love your hair!! It looks great. And brag and be snobbish. That purse is awesome.

I don't have any time either. My house is a mess and I am never around to clean. I want my lazy time. :P
