Yup, this post is a bit like a Seinfeld episode – about nothing, yet everyone can relate (at least, I hope you can, otherwise, I’m really far gone!)
First, I’d like to apologize for the lack of posts – my excuses before were that I was so busy with all the school work, reading and researching that I didn’t have time to blog; now it’s all about…well…empty excuses.
It’s not as if I have anything else to do. You see, I’ve been avoiding my Shred workouts that I was oh-so-excited about less than 2 weeks ago. Not a single one done since that first post. Don’t get me wrong, I think about doing it a lot, but just have zero motivation for it.
It’s not as if the kids aren’t inspiration enough for me. You see, after being not-the-best provider for the last 2 1/2 months (letting them just play freely while I read/researched and occasionally giving up on that and getting down to build a tower or play with dolls) – now I’m in Super Provider Overdrive. Yup, so far this week we have baked a cake, made a super-secret gift for moms/dads, made a funky gift bag to put the super-secret gift into, created a wall of snowflakes (that I got the pleasure of cutting to each child’s direction — and I have the blister to prove it), making another stick snowflake (sounds horrible, but is cute), decorating ginger bread houses, making the old time Elephant Popcorn (anyone remember that?) and … uh…. oh yeah, I still have fudge and cookies on my list-o-things to do. I have read stories until I’ve lost my voice (and unknowingly, gave my sweet little chosen child nightmares about wolves who eat children. Thanks a lot Red Riding Hood!)
Also, I have booked in a last minute “Spa-Care” day (a daycare day full of spa treatments…facials, mani/pedis and pajamas.) So, I have more boys than girls — they’ll enjoy it just as much as the girls!
No, instead I spend my evenings in front of my computer in a complete brain fog mindlessly clicking links that take me to some of the strangest things that I’ve ever seen…and they all involve vaginae (yes, that’s the correct spelling, all this time I’ve been saying “vaginas” but apparently that’s wrong. Who knew?) Sorry to those of you who are vagina-phobes….it’s not my fault…I read a link, find it interesting click on it and can’t look away. It’s not porn (don’t worry about that) — but it is odd and leaves you thinking, “What the hell is wrong with the world??”
