So, what's a mom to do with 2 bored little children?? Well, make a make shift "tent," of course!!
So, you grab the big, fuzzy pink blanket off the bed and you throw it over the changing table, anchored by the box of wipes. Then you stretch it over to the expensive kitchen that she doesn't play with near enough and tuck it behind it. THE KIDS ARE THRILLED!!!!
You let them fill it with pillows, blankets, books and toys to their hearts content and let them "hide in the tent," insisting you CAN'T see them anywhere!!!
Well, it bought me about 45 minutes of peace, so it was all worth it!!!!!!
So, what do you do on rainy days when the kids are tired of being inside and you are going nuts!?!?!
After 5 long months on the market, we got 2 offers yesterday!!!! Isn't that how it always goes?! We couldn't get the 2 into a bidding war because one was clearly a "better" offer, mainly because they want to close next week and the lender swears they can get it done! Yea!!! That means we won't even have to make the house payment that I've already scheduled thru the bank and that would be AWESOME!!
Start praying now that nothing goes wrong and we slide into closing next week w/out any major issues. By the end of the month, hopefully you won't have to listen to me whine about this subject EVER AGAIN!!!!!! (thanks for listening, though!!!!!)
In the Kitchen NEWS:
And here's the yummy breakfast I made for my kids this morning. It's cottage cheese, covered w/ bananas and strawberries, cinnamon and topped w/ whipped cream and just enough slivered chocolate so they can say they had chocolate for breakfast!! THEY LOVED IT!!
Big Daddy's plane should have landed about 4 minutes ago. YEA!!! Hopefully, he'll get his bags and make the 1 hour drive and make it home by dinnertime!!
Ok, well, since blogger has been a pain while uploading all these pics, it's taken WAY WAY too long. I'm off to bed.....
Let me know what you think of my latest works..........
Just before we moved, I had a problem with a bird who had climbed in under the eaves our our house and decided that was a better place to live than say, in a nest in a tree or a birdhouse. Then, the pain in the a$$ decided to PECK A HOLE in the ceiling of Griffin's room. Yes, the darn thing pecked a hole thru the ceiling, dropping sheetrock chunks and dust all over everything. Exactly, what kind of bird thinks it's a good idea to peck a hole in someone's ceiling. What did he think he was going to accomplish? Where was he going? What exactly was going thru his mind as he sunk his beak thru insulation and finally thru the semi-hard sheetrock?
So, Ike had to patch the hole and attempt to match that weird pattern on the ceiling.
Then, after Ike had moved. That a-hole bird did it again. I WAS FURIOUS!!!! What kind of bird decides he's gonna peck a hole in the ceiling twice??? It's not like it gets THAT cold in Savannah! So, another repair was in order. But, seriously...what a pain in the booty!
Also, I feel the same intense hatred toward Palmetto Bugs/roaches that are in Georgia. I have torn apart a room trying to kill some of those nasty creatures on more than one occasion!!!! (the only person I've met that hates them more than me is Sherry......poor girl nearly passes out when she sees one....I just get crazed!)
Most recently.....I'd like to say that.......
Yep, those little suckers have invaded my home. Now, do they bite? No, not this type. These are just annoying. (Although I did have a few go-arounds w/ the stingin' fireants in Savannah....and p.s. I won.)
But,these ants, well, they trail wherever they feel like it. They trail on the counter in the kitchen (and trust me, it's clean.) They trail by the front door and onto the shoes. They trail in my master bath and ruin the sanctity of my peaceful shower....because, afterall, I don't want them ON me!
::heebie jeebies, now::
So, I DECLARE WAR! I grab the closest thing to me, which might kill them. It's.....KABOOM!
It turns out, Kaboom! not only cleans your bathroom, but it will kill ants and ruin the paint on your bathroom wall. (just trust me on this one.)
