Oh, look. A blog post. This must mean that the children started back to school today and I can actually get into the office and sit at my computer for more than six seconds without having someone hover over my shoulder and say “It’s my turn now, Mom.”
And, yes, I did get a dedicated computer three weeks ago and that’s how long it took me to figure out how to offload our vacation and Christmas pictures onto it and I still haven’t figured out how to attach an iPhoto picture into a blog post because apparently technology hates me. So in the meantime, I’m back on the germ-infested kids computer because it accepts my commands and we’ll talk about the three pictures I took this week that I can upload without any problem.
1. Much to my husband’s chagrin, I chopped off my hair.
Also to his
and yours, I’m sure great dismay, I wore no makeup and didn’t shower all weekend either.
2. The reason I was in a general unkempt state was because two-thirds of my offspring were at a snow-tubing event with their youth group and I took advantage of them being out of the house to go into their rooms and
toss all their junk re-organize their closets and do some deep cleaning and it took me FIVE HOURS just to get the upstairs presentable after which I collapsed on the couch and declared that no one was ever going to be allowed in their bedrooms again.
I think Travis enjoyed being an only child for the weekend. To assuage our own guilt at his not being able to go on the trip, we gave him a little folding money to spend at Walmart and he took full advantage of our weakened state.
And since Craig was feeling a little spendy, I took the liberty of picking up some new pillows for the living room.
3. And then I spent way too much time getting caught up on back episodes of Downton Abbey and if you have not been watching this show we cannot be friends.
I may or may not be in love with Matthew Crawley.
And don’t even get me started on Mr. Bates.
Have a nice day.
