The Uppity Up of What's Been Up..

Again my blog is feeling the neglect of the life I am currently leading. I can't tell you how insane it has been.. well, maybe I can..
First of all, I have to mention that my dear friend blogless had her twin babies a week ago yesterday. Finally! She was only 2 days early, and for twins, that is just one total pisser. Well, it's actually really good and her babies were nice healthy weights (about 15 pounds combined- god help her!) but to have to waddle around in discomfort for close to 40 weeks with two babies just made my skin crawl a bit. Every time I saw her, or talked to her, it was painful.. for me. Yes, it's all about me! It brought me back to my own twin pregnancy in which I couldn't wait for the 35th week when I knew I could at least have them locally, and know they would be ok. Blogless is truly my hero.. I think I complained for her more than she ever did for herself!! I have yet to meet her babies, but I am planning on going up to her house this weekend and washing a floor, or scrubbing a toilet, or just holding some babies.. whatever she needs.. she was a huge help to me when my own girls were born, and it's the least I can do..
In other news.. school is over. yee friggin ha! I can't tell you how excited I am not to have to deal with the morning rush of feeding, clothing, packing lunches, brushing teeth.. and getting the boys to the bus on time. And of course remembering to be there when they get off the bus as well.. we all know how good I am at that! Now it's just me and the kiddo's in p.j.'s until whenever the hell we want.. which could be all day, and we are all ok with that!
There have been so many things I have wanted to blog about in the past couple of weeks.. the last day of kindergarten for my youngest son, having to explain my period to my oldest son (yea, that was fun), the recent illness my father in law is facing, but I find the issue is time.. And the lack of it.. If I'm not changing a diaper, or folding laundry, doing the dishes or dust busting some cracker crumbs off the couch, then I'm asleep.. there really is some bloggable shit going on, but I am too tired to stay up and write it down..
One day I'll get to it.. as for now, I'm heading to bed.. my most favorite place!

2. Tag eight other people.
Well, since I don't even know 8 people that are current with their blogs, I tag my sister, and a busy mom of 5. Have fun ladies!! ;) And since you both have twins, I really don't expect you to do it.. but at the very least I have hopefully made you feel special! And popular! ;)

Bone Marrow Registry..

I have always wanted to sign up for the bone marrow registry, and for whatever reason, I never did.. Until yesterday.
They are letting you join the registry, free of charge, until June 22nd. Everyone should join. It's fast, and easy, and free!! (usually it's $50 for the swab kit, not a high price to pay to help save a life) Here's the site..

3 Yards..

It doesn't sound like it's that much.. really. 3 yards to someone who fancies sewing, sounds like enough for a couple of bags, or a curtain..
So why wouldn't 3 yards of mulch sound like a lot?? Why wouldn't it sound like the perfect amount??

Because yards in outside terms are very different than yards in real life (as I like to call the inside).

If only I had had my camera waiting, to capture the look on my poor husbands face as he pulled in from work last week to see our driveway pretty much covered in mulch. He left for work thinking that I was just going to call around for prices.. He didn't know that I would in fact be having some delivered the same day. I thought it was a great deal, and they could deliver it the same day. And since I'm the type of person who would like things finished yesterday, I thought this was fair.

I am currently thinking about either making a ton of flower beds in my yard, or putting it on Craigslist. I haven't made up my mind. I'm pretty sure he has an idea of where I could put it..

3 sets of twins..

My life is not easy.. taking care of my own set of twins, still at the tender age of 2, my sister's twins who are the at the rambunctious age of 19 months, and my sister's daughter, who is at the wonderful know it all age of 4.
I don't want to pat myself on the back (well, not too hard anyway) but damn! I'm a busy friggin woman.. or just legally insane.. or both.
I took some pictures the other day, of the insanity.. My niece came to the house wearing a beautiful dress, and a doll that was wearing the same exact one. Cute, yet oddly creepy.
But she was a twin that day too.. So, I tried getting a couple of pictures of ALL the twins.. This was the best I could do as one of the boys couldn't bear being out of my arms for more than a moment..

My 6 year old is learning so much. He's got most of his letters down pretty well. It would appear that Z's are a bitch.
This would be a cheese and pepperoni pizza.. almost!

It's On Sister!

I finally decided what to do with the spider. I've named it Mr. Big, cause it's fucking BIG. I brought it to work with me last night, and left it in a cabinet at my sister's desk. She's now informed me that she left it somewhere for me. Great. I can't imagine where she's hiding it, but it is so on. Hahaha.. (evil laughter).

The Hee-Bee's..

I don't mind most things. But spiders.. no thanks. It's bad enough that since we have moved into our new house, I have had to dispose of several. But this one here, this takes the cake. I found it while cleaning the girls bedroom the other day. At first glance, I thought it was one of those fake spider rings that kids get for Halloween.. unfortunately, it was quite real. I'm not sure exactly what type of spider it is, but I am pretty sure it's harmless. That doesn't mean that I want to live with it either. Time to call the orkin man..
