as always, yours, truly, Wacky Mommy

1) as always, torn.

2) torn, torn, torn.

3) I want to read, put away the food from dinner, cook some more (crockpot steel-cut oats for breakfast, with apples and cinnamon), finish the laundry, go see what Steve is doing, snuggle with the kids, snuggle with Steve, listen to the new podcast he’s putting up, clean the house… (“I want to lock it/all up in my pocket/it’s my bar of chocolate/give it to me… now…” — Veruca Salt)

4) naw, I’m not manic. Or maniacal. We just got home from the beach — funny thing, no one cleaned the house while I was gone. Steve took us for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary a month late.

5) because I told him, You spending the week in Iowa with the kids, then zipping home just in time for a half-day of our anniversary, and you were jet-lagged and exhausted because you PARTIED the whole time you were gone and apparently forgot to sleep? That, my spousal equivalent, does not count as an anniversary. So there.

6) smart man. decided we should rent a house on a quiet, fairly deserted part of the beach, in a teeny-tiny town, eat vast quantities of food, drink a bottle of champagne while we watched the sun set and…

7) …watch hours and hours of Spongbog (ha! i’m leaving that typo. Spongbog it is, from this day forward) and America’s Funniest Home Videos.

8) Thas right, folks, we had 2 medium-sized blonde children with us. They had fun, too! We ate an entire bag of double-stuff Oreos between the four of us! And had hot cocoa!

9) You know who’s calling right now? Restless Housewives. Season premiere. Forget the cooking and the tidying and the reading of good literature. I have ABC to watch.

10) bye and please have a great week.

11) ps I have another blog. It’s about books. If you don’t already have the address, plz e me and I will send it to you.

12) yours, as always, stay sweet, WM

    Ahhh, that was great! And I liked your, ummm, Monday Twelve? I have to get up and do stuff too, but the house is so nice and QUIET for a change!

    Sounds great! And you know, no one cleans MY house when I go out of town either. We should fix that, start a petition. Pass a law…

    Enjoy your week!

    Nan, I miss the Thursday Thirteen can you tell? I *love it* when the house is quiet.

    TOL, isn’t it always a shocker? Still warm weather here — I had fun harvesting the overgrown garden when we got back. (No one had sauced the tomatoes, either. Go figure.)

    What? I do not have this new blog address. What is up with this?
    Also I want to chat about age-appropriate ESL stuff for 8th and 9th graders. Yes I am doing a Club d’Anglais at the kids’ school. Yes I am crazy (but they will pay me). Please advise, Ms Librarian.
