It’s Time For A List

TGIF, y’all!  My kids are still in bed.  All three of them.  And it’s almost 9AM.  Glorious. It took me all summer to train their body clocks to accommodate my schedule.  And as irony would have it, next week I’ll be begging them to wake up at 7:30 to make the bus.  Life is so not fair.

So anyway.  Here are a few unrelated items of note.

1.  The sores on my legs were evidently caused by some rabid bug.  My doctor could not tell me what bug or why I reacted so strongly, but she prescribed a topical steroid cream and sent me on my merry way.  I was relieved to find out I do not have leprosy and am in no danger of my limps falling off.  Life is good.

2.  Evidently you’re supposed to DRY your car after you wash it.  Who knew?  My car is now officially dirtier than it was before I washed it.  I almost wrecked yesterday because the sun was shining on the water spots on my windshield and I couldn’t see what was in front of me.  Locating an automatic carwash is on my list of Things To Do today.

3.  Who else is addicted to the Olympics?  We are recording everything on our DVR, and I’m getting way behind.  It’s stressful, my life.  I feel like I’m walking through a minefield, trying to avoid any and all discussion of the events, lest someone should give away who won.  I want to watch the events without knowing the outcome.  SHHHHH!!!  Don’t you dare give anything away!

4.  Okay, I thought I had a list of things to say, but the well is dry.  DRY, people.  Oh wait.  Here’s one more thing.  I was lucky enough to get a box of leftover BlogHer swag from BSM Media.  Among other fun things was the Capture Carpet Cleaning System, which I need desperately.  It says it deep cleans 2 to 4 rooms.  I have white carpets and 3 kids.  ‘Nuff said.  I’ll let you know how it works.

Alrighty then.  That’s all I’ve got.  Hey, if you haven’t been over to Chic Critique in a while, check it out.  We have an awesome team of writers that are dishing on all kinds of great beauty and health-related topics.  It’s now 9:45, and 2 of my 3 kids are still in bed.  I’m in heaven.  I think I’ll try to catch up on the Olympics before someone usurps my TV.

  1. I am addicted to the olympics too. It is hard to turn it off. I had to force myself, the lack of sleep was making me a bit punchy.

    Rabid bugs…hehehehehe

    Hope the meds work!!

  2. I don’t wash my van, ever. On occasion the car elves have pity and give it a good washing but they haven’t been around in months.
    We stayed on the school wake schedule most of the summer.It kept things sane around here. The two oldest have alarm clocks that they are totally responsible for now. If they oversleep they miss breakfast. Its worked for the last week and I am hoping it continues to work when school begins Wednesday.

  3. I am so addicted to the Olympics too, except for me I’ve been staying up way too late to watch them. Sometimes midnight or later. Not good when you have to be up at 6:30 a.m. bright and cheerful by 7:30 to greet kids and parents at your door.

  4. Ive been staying up to watch the olympics also. I was intrigued more last week. This week I find out the results and then decide if I want to watch them. Crazy, hunh!
