Hey Girl

Pull up a chair and get comfy because here is the low down on what's going on around my parts.

This morning I woke up and decided not to wash my hair because it looked great.  At around 10:00am it was starting to look a little more not so great.  After some time letting the kids play outside in the humidity it was an official train wreck.  We came in and I put it up in a pony tail, keeping the swoopy bangs free to try to redeem the 'dew.  It is 3:30 and bobby pins have made there way into the 'dew looking very ghetto-ish.  I have a jewelry show tonight and am currently pondering the value of refixing my hair or just embracing the bobby pin within.

Let's talk food.  At around 10ish this morning we all got hungry and I was in the mood to chop and dice veggies.  My mom gave us the prettiest red, orange and yellow peppers from Sam's.  We sauteed finely diced onion and peppers in butter, added eggs and scrambled them and topped the entire creation with freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese, salt and pepper.  We ate the Omelet Scramble (the way you can lovingly refer to this recipe if you make it) with toast and it was the best lunch.

Which leads me to the "I want to be a better Mommy and feed you more vegetables" talk.  My 5 year old was NOT DOWN at all with caring about me being a better Mommy and feeding him more vegetables.  Normally at the table I have an eat or don't eat mentality, but I'm not going to make a big deal about it...just  don't go asking for snacks between meals.

Today, however, we played a game. If he tried 3 bites I'd let him have a snack of my choosing.  He decided to play.  We were hootin' and hollerin' and cheerin' him on.  He earned a banana for snack.  If he decided to play again, which he did, I'd add another snack choice.  It was an apple.  He had the chance to play for the grand finale snack of popcorn for 3 more bites which he won. Then the icing and final chance to play was for 3 more bites for popcorn and Coke.  It was a fun little time.

OK, bad hair, eating more vegetables, oh yes, now let's talk about the laundry.  I think you'll be excited to know that I started laundry yesterday and did not finish.  So, there's still clothes sitting in the washer and dryer today.

I also have not cleaned the kitchen yet today because we played outside and went to the church this morning.

This afternoon instead of finishing my chores I got on Facebook and was having a grand old time until the loud screaming started from the bathroom.  Running toward the scream I could heard a bubbling brook.  Yep.  The toilet was overflowing.  And a 2 year old was scared silly.  Talk about funny, ahem, I mean nasty and unfortunate.

So, that's my day in a nutshell.  Oh that and we have crazy storms comin' our way.  That will be a nice way to end a nice day I think.

Chores (and laundry) can always wait. Yay for you for choosing a memorable morning over a kitchen that will forever need cleaned.

I, too, am showerless today. Since I have a bunch of 6th and 7th grade girls coming over tonight for biblestudy, me thinks I need to be a good example in good hygiene. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. ;)

I am picturing the ghetto hair and laughing! What a great word for my hair...a.lot.of.days. I get so tired of "getting ready." Thus why I don't most days. You know it's been a while when your husband notices when you have on real clothes and a shower...it's probably been too long at that point:)
