Today: I failed.

Lucky us, we’ve been getting FREE CABLE!  No one else we knew was this lucky, but it just kept working day after day, I figured it was a blessing from above. (lol)  But yesterday, as I was watching cartoons with Brody it went fuzzy, and left us forever.

I brought ONE movie.  And since yesterday I’ve turned it on 3 TIMES for background noise.  {I don’t like silence}

I realized it was foolish to bring one movie… yes, even Twilight.  I’m.. slowly….. going.. insane.

Brody’s dinner time:  6:00 PM  Clean tray:  6:15 PM

What really happened:  10 PM and this is what we have:

Oh sweet potato puff how did you get here?  I never miss a crumb on the carpet {yes even our shag carpet} but somehow this little guy got away from me.

Oh.  Ok.  I probably could’ve avoided that.

MAIL!  Oh mail.  I never get mail!  And a package!

5-27-09 013copy Wait, it’s not for me.

But actually:  it is! 

School books.  Suck.  {I’m usually excited about school but I dread online classes.  And btw, I’m taking two starting Monday.  WHoopee!  Not.}

Brody wasted the gate:  He now knows how to break through.  So much for that idea.

Goal for the day:  drink the recommended amount of water each day.

My progress:5-27-09 012

DO PILATES: CHECK.  Let Brody body slam the DVD and scrape it against the DVD player: Check.

5-27-09 026 5-27-09 031

Order flat iron like I’ve been meaning to.. because I’ve chosen one!

And then discover they are all out of stock.  And the one I want is now DISCONTINUED!

Not to mention:  go grocery shopping for the week (usually accomplished on Monday):  Check.  Do laundry (also done on Monday):  Check.  And make dinner for my husband who has been at work for 12 hours:  check.  OH wait… NOT, NOT, and NOT.  (sorry, Tony)

At least I know there’s always tomorrow.

i totally know how you feel - some days you just can't seem to win at anything. so tell me more about your schooling...i've been toying with the idea of going back to school, but i just don't know where to begin or anything. so i'd love to know what you're doing!

It seems lately that all of my days are like that. I have such good intentions but sometimes that's just not good enough.

By the way I love your blog header. Did you design it?

Ha you're too funny! And you are explaining like every day for me! If I can get the gym in and the kids are fed, its a good day for me! :)
Oh and you need to go get some DVD's at Blockbuster for only a dollar and you get them for 5 days! I think I outdid myself with Twilight in the theater..cause I've only watched it twice on DVD!

Thats awesome that you're taking some classes!

I love when Brody "wasted" the gate. I mean... i feel bad for you. But it was funny the way you put it. You're cool Connie.

Brody shows such sincere intent (brute strength) in the baby gate picture and has such a cute expression in the last photo, that you want to just love him up!!! Yes, world, I am his Jeda Grandma! As for the other mishaps along the way, I think I'll package some DVD's we have and send them to you---can't do much about the sweet potato puffs, and I am empathizing with you over that hot iron. Which one did you decide now that they have discontinued it? Try checking ebay. You may end up with a better deal on it anyway! Idea two is to buy the new and improved model. I'm sorry to hear Tony did not have a great homecooked meal. Maybe you should buy an extra large mountain sized bag of hotdogs like when I was at your house in the Spring---then there's dinner in a flash! (Ha, Ha, Ha)! Love, Mother

I have told her that you're there for the summer.

Hey Connie, I totally feel like a failure on a lot of days. Like today for instance, my 2 1/2 year old had about 50 fits, one by the floral department in Fry's, one by the bread in Fry's, one in the Fry's parking lot, one in the car driving home from Fry's, one getting out of the car from Fry's...and the list goes on...basically, Fry's was a nightmare! Anyway, why he throws these fits, I don't know, I hope it's the age and he'll grow out of it. But, it sure does make me feel like a failure as a mother, especially when everyone in Fry's is watching.

Poor Connie baby! Evidently your cable was provided by the last tenant.

The potato puffs were really funny. Connie you crack us up!

The baby gate only holds back babies, so obviously the Brodster is not a baby! We all love him!
