I took a break from blogging, was that not obvious? I don't think I'll ever do a blog challenge again, I wasn't expecting to get so burnt out.
I have been surprisingly busy. Most of my summers are spent laying by a pool working on my tan, but this summer has been one family function after another.
I moved. Lost my ipod in the move, that was most devastating. I still haven't recovered. Our new place is awesome though. I hardly see my kids anymore, they are busy running amock in the backyard. We've met a handful of our neighbors and I often find myself wondering if they think I am as nuts as I think they are. Folks are interesting, that's for sure.
The Mother in Law came for a visit. I thought about killing her daily. Most thoughts involved me setting her on fire. The Hubs has yet to show me where he hid the matches. She is one crazy ass bitch and I've got 2 new rules to add to my "house guest rules".
- I don't share any sort of eating utensil with anyone. Don't take it personally when I don't want to eat off the same spoon as you. Crying about it only hurts you, and I mean this quite literally, you cry and your beady eyes get even beadier and that caked on makeup smears, its not a pretty sight.
- As a guest in our house you are welcome to tuck the small children into bed, but never, never, ever, never tuck myself or The Hubs into bed at night. My door was locked for a reason and the next time you bang on my door while screaming about tucking us in, will be the last time. There are only so many places he could have put those matches and I will find them.
It will also come as a surprise, but I am planning on going camping (in a tent) at some point this summer. One of my little sisters bought into the timeshare we belonged to as kids and has invited us up. I am nervous, but also really excited. I have some great memories and am looking foward to showing my kids where I played every summer as a child.
Until next time.
