Grandma Knees

HERE is my second video from 5 Minutes For Mom. Sheesh, I sound like I hate to get mail in this video. I don't! Really! I love to hear from my readers! I kinda sound like a jerk in this video though.

After you watch the interview, check out the rest of their site. Janice and Susan, the twin sisters who run 5 Minutes For Mom, have tons of awesome giveaways, helpful tips, information on writing, going green, special needs, and well, pretty much everything "parenting" under the sun! They've recently created a new feature over at 5 Minutes For Mom - Blogs Can Change Lives. They gave away an HP computer and printer to a family in need and loved the idea of helping others through the power of blogging, so they decided to make Blogs Can Change Lives an ongoing outreach at 5 Minutes For Mom.

Right now I'm in a "too much to do and not enough hours in the day" mood. I was sitting here feeling overwhelmed; not knowing where to start; wondering how I would ever get everything accomplished this month, when Clay slowly walked into the room saying, "I have grandma knees." I looked up to see Clay standing there with rubber bands on his knees. The skin within the rubber bands was all wrinkled up.

Leave it to Clay to lighten the mood and put things in perspective.

Remember, you can still check out my review blog for a chance to win a Batter Blaster, organic pancake and waffle batter in a can or a Zivio bluetooth hands-free headset.

YAY CLAY! I am suffering from the same ailment, too much to do and not enough time to do it. So what do I do? Get busy? Noooo... I read your blog! Heh, this is much better than dishes or laundry~!! Okay, you have inspired me... I'll go get busy. Thank you for your blog!

LOL @ Grandma knees! Bring back memories....I used to do that same thing!

Rick said...

I love seeing the videos of you.
I go grrrr!!! at the people that send you hate mail.
I think it's crazy that you stay up so late.
I will NEVER ever, ever e-mail you again. (I want you to get some sleep child!!!)

P.S. Who am I kidding? Of course I will e-mail you again. I can't help myself.

Rick said...

BTW: Does this mean that I'm NOT going to get that money from Bill Gates?

Okay so I'm just catching up and I noticed you mentioned a little something about library fines last week. A friend told me about a great website called libraryelf.com. You just select your local library, plug in your information, and it will send you reminder emails when you have stuff due. It's a great thing and has saved me from who knows how many fines over the past few months.

Lol! You have to wonder what goes on in that boy's head some days...

Yep, grandma knees. That's exactly what mine look like except the skin looks older. :) Margie

Better his knees than your's! My 4yo likes to play with loose skin at my elbows. I'm horrified to think I used to do this to the back of my grandma's hands. What goes around comes around....

Kids are so funny and they do the silliest things.

Your video was good, you seem very nice. :)

With six kids, a blog, a book contract and everyday life, I am sure you are overwhelmed. I wish you peace and quiet{for at least 2 minutes anyway}in the following few days. :)

Heather said...

LOL at Clay's Grandma knees stunt. Glad he made you smile midst the overwhelm.

korkie said...

Yes Rich. Forget about that check from Bill. Some other lucky slob got it!!

diddlesgirl said...

I love grandma's knees! btw i keep meaning to email you with how impressed i am with your ability to keep up with 6 kids and make special food too! I had to make food for my little one for about a year because of her food allergies and i barely made it with just two kids... and you still find reasons to laugh and take the time to make others laugh! you are one amazing woman! I always believe that God knows what we can handle (with His help) more than we do . . thats' why he gave you 6 kids and me only 2!

There's never too much to do that a maitai or four or sixteen can't fix.

Sarah said...

Do you ever ask Clay what he was thinking when he was doing that? I just love hearing the explanations that my kids come up with when they are doing something like that. I bet his stories are just as good as theirs.

Michelle said...

Nice job, Clay! Totally cracked me up... So after you saw the grandma knees what did you realize you needed to start with?

Table for Seven said...

Hey Korkie, just because I got the check from Bill and you didn't, doesn't mean you have to call me a slob!!!

korkie said...

My apologies to "Table for Seven.'

"No disrespect meant."

HAH!

Table for Seven said...

None taken Korkie. I'm too busy (sending more emails to get my next check) to be offended! Who knows, I may share the wealth this time....

Dorothy said...

I went over to their site and it was wonderful...I'll be back on the site..
