Where Have I Been?

a) Frantically trying to keep up with the laundry which, as I shared with a couple of friends today, seems to be having babies when I put clothes in the hamper.

b) Still trying to accomplish the things on this list. I also added a couple of things to the list, and I AM going to get it finished. Someday.

c) Making pumpkin cookies.

d) At a surprise 35th birthday party for our friend Lee. Unfortunately, none of my pictures taken outside when he was surprised turned out.

e) Trying to explain to a certain member of our family that being a “party pooper” has nothing to do with actual poop.

f) Taking all 3 boys to the pumpkin patch so that Bennett could attend a birthday party there.

g) Watching Luke play baseball, and watching my other boys eat ring pops and…

…sing a little piece of “Single Ladies.”

h) Having dinner with friends!

i) Doing a bit of Christmas shopping in stores and online, and shopping for some clothes for Matt.

j) Getting my hair cut and highlighted.

k) Eating Krispy Kreme donuts with my boys!

l) Going to church.

m) Providing cupcakes for a teacher’s appreciation lunch.

n) All of the above.

And the answer is…

Ding! Ding! Ding! You guessed it: n!

All of these things happened between Friday morning and Sunday evening. Need. sleep.

P.S. Happy birthday to my SIL Heidi!

  1. HILARIOUS! Now you just have to get the moves that go along with it!
    Dude, you’re stressing me out with this list.

  2. Is there supposed to be a huge space b/w “sing a little piece of ‘Single Ladies’ ” & “having dinner w/ friends”? (If the answer is obvious & I’m just too out-of-it to understand, forgive me!)

    You had a HUGE wkend! Mine was busy, but I feel like a real slacker next to you.
