If you give a Mom a toliet wand........

If you give a Mom toilet wand, she's going to want to clean the toilet. As she's cleaning the toilet she will find her daughter's dirty underwear secretly hidden in back. (Like I would never find it WAY back there ) The dirty underwear will remind her that she needs to switch the laundry from the washer to the dryer.

As she goes to throw away the lint from the dryer, she will notice that the garbage is full. She will want to take it out. As she's taking the garbage out, the phone will ring. She will answer it and find it to be a $##% Tele-marketer. Hearing the annoying recording will prompt her to Google the Do Not Call List on her computer.

Sitting in front of her computer will make her want to check her email. She might get carried away and also check on her friends' blogs...and their friends' blogs...and their friends' blogs.....

Time going by will make the sleeping baby upstairs wake up and want to be fed. Hearing the baby cry will shock Mom back into reality and make her realize she has been on the computer too long.

She will pick up the sweet baby and feed him. Feeding the baby will remind Mom that she is VERY thirsty, so she will probably ask for a big glass of water.....and chances are, if she drinks all that water....she is going to have to go to the bathroom ....(didn't I start cleaning that darn toilet this morning ?

Do you know anyone like this???? I thought this was soooo cute!

Found it at this blog

Trying to conserve.........

Meet the cast of the guilty pleasures!~

I am so wasteful with electricity.......
this summer I'm going to try to conserve!!

I am guilty of leaving the cable boxes on, even when I shut the TV off

but not anymore!!
I am guilty of having these little Bath and Body thingeys
plugged in all over my house

but not anymore!~
I am guilty of leaving little lights on 24/7 in the dark rooms,
like the bathroom
but not anymore!
I am guilty of leaving night lights on all day long
and leaving things plugged in that are already charged!
but, not anymore!
I have these little bottles all over the place that are on all the time
Day and night.........
but, not anymore!
I am guilty of having Christmas tree lights on my cute topiaries
and leaving them on all the time.....

but, not anymore!

I am guilty of having 3, yes~3 refrigerators and one upright
1 fridge is in the kitchen, yes, where it's supposed to be~

1 fridge is in the dining room usually full of water
and a variety of soda~and other odds and ends.

1 fridge is out in the HOT garage, filled with.......

you guessed it.....

more pop and other crap I don't know what to do with.

And, also out in the HOT garage is an upright freezer
working as hard as it can work cuz it's so dang HOT out there!

So, you do the math.....
3 refrigerators
1 upright freezer
tons of lights
lots of Bath and Body thingeys........
and 2 people

I'm going to clean out both extra fridges and unplug them
(maybe even get rid of them)
and, if the freezer will fit in the dining room we're going to move it in there where it's cooler!
I am also going to set my clock earlier each morning and get up and unplug and turn off every single thing I can that I am not using.
Now, maybe we can run the A/C
and stay cool this summer.

Every home tells a story ….what story does your home tell?

Does it smell delicious?

Is there beauty brightening the rooms?

Are the sounds sweet and joyful?

Is it safe and warm, physically and emotionally?

Most of all…is there love? That’s what really matters.

You can have the most beautiful house filled with lovely treasures, but if love doesn’t live there…what good is it?
Mother Earth......we ♥ you!

What to wear.............

Do you ever have days like this?
I'm having
Every night before I go to bed I try and decide what to wear......
and I'm stumped!! I'm sick to death of my clothes!!
My dry cleaning bag is full and I refuse to pay the price to get them dry cleaned.....
so I'm pretty much stuck wearing the same old thing!!
What's a girl to do?
I guess I could stay home in my bathrobe....
Hey, now that's an idea!!

Sweetiepie has a new knee!
(hey, that rhymes)

He's doing well. Hope he can come home Saturday. But actually, I'm shocked at how well he feels. I know there will still be some bad painful times, but all in all, he's doing GREAT! or SUPER GREAT....
for any of you that know him.

Thanks for all your prayers and support.

I'll keep you posted on his recovery.

Be sure to come see him when he gets home.....he's going to go

1st time in my life.......

Picture me....
working on the 4th floor of this building.....
and all the sudden the building was swaying...
the windows were rattling and the vertical blinds were moving like crazy!
So, I went to work a few hours at the office today....
and little did I know I would experience what an earth quake felt like.
I put it on my Facebook and people thought I was crazy or delusional!
So, I went to CNN and sure enough.....the earth quake in Mexico was felt as far away as Arizona!!

It was a funny, eerie feeling that I don't want to experience again....EVER!!
