The title of this post pretty much sums up my day. The honors are courtesy of Ty’smommy at The Seventh Level of Boredom. She has declared This D*mn House “One Lovely Blog,” passing on an honor she received and saying some awfully nice things about me and the blog in the bargain. THANKS!
I will, in turn, be putting up a badge and passing the honor along very soon.
Vicki over at NotSoSAHM sent some props my way – thanks! – and even posted pictures of the hotel room where her family is holed up for another week. (Photos courtesy of 2-year-old Ashlyn. I’d say she’s got a budding photographer on her hands!)
And the insanity? That was courtesy of the mother. I was just finishing my lunch when my cell phone started ringing. Odd, but not unheard of. I thought maybe it was one of my friends, perhaps PB. But no.
It was the mother. I barely got “hello” out.
“WHERE ARE YOU?!” she bellowed. The emotion in her voice was palpable. I was confused. “I’m at work. Where else would I be?” For a second, I thought maybe she had thought I was only working a half-day or something.
“Why are you at work? It’s Saturday!”
I almost didn’t have the heart to tell her that it was Friday. Once I did tell her, she asked me if I was sure. “Well, if it’s not, there’s a whole hell of a lot of people in the office today who are confused.”
I think the lack of sleep, the overwhelming amount of house activity, and all of the chaos of our little zoo is taking its toll.
