That Sound You Just Heard

Was me falling over. I just finished my newsletter and sent it out, cleared out the bad addresses and put in the new ones that subscribed since last month. And now I have to go deal with the KITCHEN THAT ATE CLEVELAND (honestly, how does it get so darned dirty? How many times a day must I do the dishes?)

My 20 month old decided that playing in the toilet was a super fun idea (and you really need to hear that in a cruise director voice) and as I was cleaning up that mess, she thought she needed to pull the roll of toilet paper she ruined out of the trash. You know, some days I feel like a baby herder.

I’ve eaten way too many jelly beans today. I don’t even like jelly beans. Each time I put another one in my mouth I think, “ugh, god! Why did I just do that? I won’t do it again.” until I do it again. Even now my nose is wrinkled. I’m weak.

I’m doing revisions. I hate revisions.

Enforcer is due out on Wednesday. Anya Bast and I are having a List Mom Day tomorrow at the EC Readerboard so please come and say hello.

I was going to write about revisions today, but the same 20 month old who is driving me nuts decided to be awake between 1 and 4 this morning so it’s not like i’ve got anything coherent to say.

Have a good day!

    I remember the days of really having to keep my eyes open for what my children would do next…yet, desperately wanting to close them since I was so sleep deprived. All my sympathies.

    LOL, Little Lamb. It’s not like I’m a novice, I’ve got an 8 year old and a 4 year old, but she was a surprise and I thought I was done, LOL. I’m too old for this!

    I feel you… I have a daughter that decided toilet paper was THE COOLEST THING EVER, and liked to drag it around the bathroom during the potty training phase….

    Course, now she’s almost four, and thinks she has to come sleep in our bed. Joy rapture….

    So I feel you…

    PS: and why is it if you’re a night person, you MUST have a child that’s a morning person???

    Sympathies Lauren. I don’t have “A toilet paper is the best invention ever” child… Thank goodness, but he does go through fazes where he must sleep on his half ouf our bed. Yep, leaves me less than a body’s span when he’s in there… *G*

    Diana, I kid my husband that I can sleep on half an inch of bed space because our 20 month old wants to join us and then sleep sideways. And we have a king sized bed! LOL.

    Jessy, LOL, I don’t know. I try not to think about it, good thing my husband has very low expectations of me as a stay at home mom, LOL.
