Monday

After 10 fun filled days with my parents, as I type this (and pretend to still be sleeping so I don’t have to help them pack), they are getting ready to leave to go back to their home in Florida. It was a really fun trip, I must say. We went to Ikea TWICE. One of those times, I bought so much, it resulted in my mom sitting like this for the ride home:

Then, after we got everything, my Dad:

(he’s the old one) turned a little awkward space in my basement into a really cute “office” for my kids!

Isn’t it cute?
I won’t tell you how long it took home to put that desk together , but just to give you a rough idea of the speed of his work, I asked him to hang up six pictures in my office and it took him SIX hours! I’m not kidding. Not exactly going to win a race. And you know what? The pictures that he hung, oh so carefully…not even! Oh well. I still like it. And like he said, if I cock my head slightly to the right, they look perfect!

Anyway, they are leaving today and that makes for a very sad day for me. Not to mention, a slightly groggy one because after tossing and turning last night for several hours, I finally got up and took an Ambien.
I would love to write more about the trials and tribulations of drug induced sleep, but my mom has just discovered that I am not sleeping, but am in fact hiding from her in order to avoid helping her pack the car. An act that will have me in tears within moments. Oh well. More later…

Here we go…

So…I have been toying with this idea for a while. I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of putting your thoughts out there for all of the world’s amusement, right? I mean, there is the fear that NO ONE will read what you are saying…or that lots of people will read, but NO ONE will think it is funny, relevant, intelligent, etc…but, what the hell? I think I’m funny. I think my kids are funny. I think my life is pretty much a mess, but I may as well laugh about that as well, right? And let’s be honest, Facebook status updates are somewhat limiting, so I introduce to you…my blog. What you may not know about me is that this is not my first blog. I actually had one about 3 years ago. It was an anonymous blog and I actually had quite a following, but life changes and it became too painful to maintain, so I let it go. I hope I can keep this one up. To help motivate me, I am NOT going to be anonymous. See the pretty picture of me? That teeny tiny one in the upper left corner? Yup…no denying it’s me. So keep me to it people. I am going to do my best to be as honest as I can and talk about things that amuse and interest me. Of course, I will also talk about things (people) that bug me because, well that’s just fun. OH…and pictures…there will be LOTS of pictures. And, that’s it for today. Happy Chanukah and HERE WE GO!!!!
