Friday Funnies

Desperately Seeking a Scribe!
So, I've begun this blog and all day long while I'm out and about with my kids I'm thinking of hundreds of possible posts, practically writing them in my head, but then much later when I actually get to sit down and type without a toddler wildly punching keys along with me, I am too tired and there is nothing remotely intelligent or amusing coming out. So, I've decided I need a scribe. If anyone is interested in following me around all day and taking dictation that would be super! I'll start taking applications immediately, must be willing to work for free. Previous war-zone experience needed!

One of the most fun things about blogging:
Taking pictures of the most random things! Let’s see, in the last month I’ve taken pictures of the car potty, the cereal in my pantry, our cereal bowls, an unbaked squash casserole, my produce drawer. The best was the following conversation with my kids, “Mommy, what are you doing?” I replied, “taking a picture of the potty.” They asked, “Why?” I said, “So I can write about it.”

Perks of the stay-at-home mother job:
  • You can wear yoga pants all day any time you want even if you not only do not plan to attend a yoga class, but have never attended one in your whole life!!!
  • You get to say fun things like, “We don't throw knives” or “We don't take pictures of people naked” and mean it with all seriousness.
Yes, my 5 year-old and 3 year-old both got kid cameras for Christmas and aside from it being like the paparazzi around here with my picture being taken 100 times per day (and I hate having my picture taken) within hours of getting the cameras my husband had to establish the rule that you don't take pictures of people naked. That is something I never expected to have to spell out!

  1. Ha! I am the same way with the blog! I always have ideas going through my head and then promptly forget them! :)

  2. OK....I am laughing so hard at this! You and I have a LOT in common! I'll be back!

  3. That was such a funny post! It does seem like blogging can take over your brain!

  4. I can not believe you hit my feelings about yoga pants and photos dead on. Looking through my photos from the last week, I have a picture of fennel and socks. Things I never would have photographed before blogging. And oh, during the winter I get really cold so, when my husband is away and no one is coming in and I am not going out...I wear my yoga pants about 4 days a week.


I'd love to hear what you think!
