Oh Dear, What a Slacker

April 6, 2012

Dear Diary

The reason I haven’t been blogging much is because I’ve been exhausted! I’ve been working around the house or on the job, and by the time I finish at the end of the day (IF I finish then), I’m too, too tired to be witty and funny and entertaining. *thud*


I heard my first law mower yesterday. It’s officially spring. Our lawn, however, has not yet been mowed….. yeah, we’ll get to that. yeah.


If you’re a mom and you like forums, I found a nice one for you. It’s the Mom Forum. It’s very cute with nice bright colors. The topics are nice, too– there’s a lot of stuff for new mothers and mother-wannabees, as well as a general parenting forum, discussions on childrearing (all stages), and even discussions on stuff like home improvement, health, reationships, and just etting to know the other members. It looks very friendly and has a growing membership. I am an “older” mom and I sometimes feel left out of these kinds of groups, but they are very friendly. As an older mom, I can offer a little but of my experiences (especially with homeschooling and home improvement) for the younger moms.


I have a funny story to relate. The weirdest things happen to ME! Only me, I tell ya.

See that phone in the photo?


It rang JUST as I walked by! Loudly! It was like something out of The Bourne Identity! At first, I jumped. Then, I was like, “How’d they find me?!” lol. Yeah, my paranoid mind. I turned around, wondering if I should answer it.

“I should answer it,” I said to my husband next to me. He quickly recognized my mischievous mood. “I wouldn’t,” he cautiously warned. “But what if it is Chuck Norris or someone, needing my help?!”

He snickered. “Go ahead,” he said.

I circled round and round the phone looking for a way to pick it up. Apparently, the phone is locked in a box. I’d have to karate chop the box open. It was probably planned to test my strength and valor, ha!


I found this video and made ALL my kids watch it. HAHAHA!!!


I wish you all a happy resurrection day. He is risen!!!!! Have a great weekend. I hope to be back with a bit more energy next week. šŸ™‚
