Random and nonsensical

Today I am getting ready to leave my nest for a few hours, and leave my little ones behind with my aunt (there isn't a sitter on Earth who will watch Hercules) and I thought I would share my thoughts as I get ready.

  1. The bug guy is coming to spray today and my house is a disaster.
  2. I don't really want to bring the tree home today, but, I won't be alone in a car again until after Christmas.
  3. I would like to go get a massage today, but, if I do that, would I need to leave my trusty girdle at home?
  4. My trusty girdles are actually tank top-ey things that I ordered one sleep deprived night last year, that should have served as clue number one that I was pregnant again, but, I digress, I have since grown attached to them. I wish that I could remember more about their origins than having seen them on a late night infomercial.
  5. I am never buying oranges again, because my kids don't seem to find anything wrong with peeling them and leaving the trash behind on the floor/counter/wherever.
  6. I will need to take emergency rations to the pay-per-pound laundry place. Those rations will not include any towels or blankets.
  7. If I don't get off my girdled ass, I'll still be here when the pest control dude comes, and I would rather not be here to claim responsibility for my failures.


  1. Have fun out there. Take your time getting back!

  2. I don't think I could ever wear a girdle. They just seem to...binding. Must be the hippy child in me, but I need to be free (uh wait, not all day though)

  3. 6 kids, no washer? I remember the laundromat with just one baby and it was torture. I don't know how you do it.

    Here's an idea. Tell your husband that you are either going to buy a washer or you are going to just throw away their clothes when they get dirty and buy new ones.

    Really, when you look at it that way, a washer is very economical =-)

  4. what about a used washer off of craigslist? the massage sounds nice...I used to swear I would never wear a girdle, then I had five kids.

  5. I totally need more info on the trusty girdle. Sounds like it's something I need.

  6. Loving the blog! Great posts, keep up the good work. Have a look at my fashion blog, you'll love it!
