Blah Ramblings

I have the blahs.

Blah, blah, blah.

My house is soooooo dirty and messy.

Exercise has been nonexistent.

Single parenting for almost 2 weeks.

Blah, blah, blah, BLAH.

However!  I do have a big stack of new library books.

And a big stack of new owned books (thanks to Grandmary)!

And I do have that new not-a-Miele vacuum that is longing to help me!

And my garden is bursting at the seams!

And the pools are open!

And it's my blog so I can use however many exclamation points I want!

I hear an upset Blue Jay in the back yard, must be that the cats are on the prowl.

My boy is still sleeping so I have some quiet(ish) time to myself right now.

I was able to meditate for 15!!! minutes this morning.  (Oh, how I struggle with the meditation.)

I finally got all the fixins' for homemade granola which I have been meaning to make for about 10 years.

I went to a class last night that I have been wanting to find for a few years.   (It's a new agey, self-help class so I don't really wanna say what it is, but I feel such forward movement in my life this morning because I went to it!!!)

I went from Mommie Dearest to Best Mommy in the World on Monday night and was able to have a really, really, really deep and important talk with my son.  Amazed at that whole thing.

So, you know, life.

Lovely, messy, beautiful, sad, glorious, happy, joyful life!

Hopefully I'll be back to Chatty Cathy Homemaker tomorrow.

I might just have 4,000 pictures of me cleaning my house, but, who knows, that might be fun.

(I think it would be more fun if I had 4,000 pictures of someone else cleaning my house for me, but that's not happening.)


  1. Ok. Important things, where did you get that eye mask? I'm a recent convert to them and I love that one! I'm so glad that even amongst the mess you had a great talk with Finn, 15!!! minutes of meditation, and a good class last night. That's HUGE. xo

  2. Whole Paycheck! I do love the it looks like a tiny bra!



  3. i totally thought that was a tiny bra at first!!

    i'm with you, mama, feels like my life is moving in the right direction, these days and i'm so relieved about that. one foot in front of the other, as they say!

    love you.

    1. I thought it was a tiny bra, too. Had to look for several seconds.....

    2. Even the guy at Whole Paycheck asked me if it was a tiny bra!!!


      Great name for a blog: Tiny Bra

  4. Messy Shmessy - It will clean its self up with a wiggle of your nose. No oo oo but so-what. You just keep on keepin' on. And keep this blog goin'.

    1. Oh how I wish Samantha were here to wiggle her nose for my dirty house.

      I did clean yesterday and feel SO much better.


  5. Reasons why I dig you?

    Because you aren't afraid to post pics of your dirty sink.


    1. Dude.

      You should see my toilet.

      I do have some shame.


  6. My friend Peggy's Mom used to say "There will be dirty dishes in my sink when I die but, in the meantime, that means I have had something good to eat."

    1. Now I LIKE that!

      I WAS going to buy you a Shetland pony, BUT ...


All the action is here in the comments. You want some action, don't you?
