Apologizing for not keeping up a blog is kinda lame so I’m not gonna.
I’m sure that you are all fine and having lovely times at other lovely blogs.
I’ve NEVER been good at doing anything creative or productive in the summer and turns out this one is no exception. If you’re wondering how I did blog posts LAST summer (with a newborn no less!) hold your applause. I did, like, 76 pre-posts instead of nesting or getting ready for my daughter’s arrival. Seriously. It’s documented.
Also I could probably muster up enough energy to abuse my exclamation point with phrases like:
I started a new job! Boy am I busy-bippity-bee!
Big beach day with the kids! Phew!
But lets be real here: sitting in an office drinking as much coffee as my stomach will allow while listening to music and having adult conversations is a facking vacation. And as for the kids, this is the first year in 4 years that I haven’t been pregnant or toting an infant. To quote a certain lispy, English chef that I have an unhealthy desire to give a noogie to: “easy peasy.”
So what have I been doing?
Well other than ignoring this blog, getting back to “working” and hanging out with self entertaining children….hm.
I played (and cheated at) a lot of online Sudoku and got really good at it.
Now you may applause.
I hope everyone out there has been having as productive a summer as I.
(But if you haven’t, don’t apologize…that’s lame )

I prefer to sing along to the instruments in songs.
Especially the accordion and slap bass parts.

We lost power for a few hours this morning.
No big deal. They’re changing the power lines on our street so it was bound to happen. When we spend a day at home, we’re pretty good at entertaining ourselves anyway.
So ironically here’s what I got inspired to do while the power was out:
- put a load of laundry in the washing machine and turn it on
- pick out a dvd to watch since the TV “wasn’t working”
- put the baby down for a nap, including trying to heat her bottle and turn on the monitor
- surf the internet
- recharge my laptop because the battery was low
- recharge my dying phone while I was at it
- change the light bulb in the bathroom including trying to test it
- make eggs. (I stopped myself before I cracked any but then proceeded to start to…)
- make soup.
And that was just in the first hour. God I’m awesome. The only break in this display of stupidy-dumb was when I got frustrated and started dressing the kids to go somewhere only to realize that the car was in the shop.
When I had taken the car to the shop two hours earlier?
Who says routines are good for us? They just turn us into idiots.
Or maybe I was already there.
Anyway, here is what we wound up doing in the end.
Yeah. That’s right.
The kids hucked stuff down the stairs and I fell asleep while being the human baby gate.
I heard it’s what they did in the olden days.
You can bet my house was a-hummin’ when the power came back on.
Shoot me a vote if you’re having a similar day. Or even if you’re having a great day and want to make mine a little better. All it takes is a click on the link. Appreciated!

I’ve mentioned this before, but lately I’ve been noticing a trend in how reality TV affects me. Or at least how it affects me while I’m watching it. (5 minutes after it’s been turned off I’m back to wandering around the house wondering what day it is and who put these screaming humans under the table. But I digress…)
Here’s the basic breakdown:
SURVIVE IN THE WILDERNESS SHOWS
I’ve decided that in order for me to become an active, happy member of society I need to watch a reality show showing slothy, lazy, cranky people doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
