I'm wondering if, or what blogs do you read on a regular or semi regular basis? Do you even have the time?? :)
I seldom find the time to read other blogs as much as I'd like to. Between my own blog, review blog, writing articles, working on books, cleaning house, cooking, shopping, helping with homework, driving to hockey, baseball, and gymnastics, taking care of six kids 24/7, doctor's appointments, teacher conferences, paying bills, laundry, well, you get the idea. After all that stuff, I have like 4 hours left and I usually like to sleep now and then.
Are you not drying and straightening your hair now since so many people complimented you on it?
LOL! At a Chicago Moms blogger event last week, I was running late (shocking, I know) and I didn't have time to straighten my hair. OK, truth by told, I wasn't totally running late. I got downtown at a reasonable time. But then I wandered around block after block, walking in circles because I wasn't quite sure how to get to the Hard Rock Hotel despite directions from friends. I blame it on my phone which was telling me mixed up ways to go. If you've read this blog for any length of time, this shouldn't surprise you in the least.
See, I actually have curly hair, but I use tons of Suave Sleek Styling Cream, and straighten it so I don't look like a crazy old witch with a squirrel's nest for hair. Actually, curly isn't quite right. It's not exactly curly. Nor is it straight. It's more "Roseanne Roseannadanna-ish" For some odd reason, a lot of people complimented me on it. Come to think of it, there was wine at this event. That's explains it. Anyway, to answer your question, Michelle, I'm not purposely keeping it curly because it looks stupid like that. However, these days, oftentimes I simply don't have time to straighten it. Those are the days I don a Cubs hat.
Question for you: what do you use to clean crayon "art" off the windows?? Our current art has been up for months and I'm hoping the artist will update his work if we clean the window.
We're supposed to clean it off?! I figure if I let the kids cover the windows with art, I won't have to look out and see the giant messes they've made in the yard. It's all good.
I'm sure this is very immature of me, but I want to see the farting train. lol
Ok, because of the popular demand, I'll scan a picture of his flatulant train when he gets it back from his teacher.
Loving the creativew solution [on my awesome shower-fixing abilities]. But why does the phrase "Tim the Toolman Taylor" spring to mind?
I know right! I may or may not have grunted a few times after my fun with duct tape.
Did I miss something? What the heck happened to your shower door? Or should I even ask?
Well, Savannah knocked Austin into it a while back. It broke off (and Savannah got a black eye from that encounter). Austin was able to get it back on, but I think that loosened things up because the kids managed to knock it off again a couple weeks later and this time the little thingys that go into the little places, broke off. That's the technical explanation. In plain terms: it broke.
The following picture may shock you. Some viewers may find it disturbing and disconcerting. It's not the usual kind of picture you find here at BecauseISaidSo.com. You're used to seeing pictures of messes and chaos created by my children. This is not that kind of picture. I found this when I sat down at my desk to work the other day. Brace yourselves and scroll down, if you dare.
