Yes, that's me... the slacker. I have tried to keep up with this blog and everyone else's, too, and I haven't done a very good job at any of it.

I've been engrossed in a book - Middlesex, which I think I mentioned in my last blog. It is GREAT and highly recommended by yours truly. I won't give it away, but definitely check it out if you get a chance.

My boys are doing their Friday Night Freakshow and I am relaxing in our den - kind of half watching repeats of Spongebob Squarepants.

I really need to sort thru all my paper stuff. I keep piles of things that need my attention - bills, and other assorted items I'd like to look at more closely. I try to go thru my pile every few days and seeing as how it's the first of the month, I should pull out my first half of the month bills and get those ready to pay.

I ordered a new front door and screen door (the kind where the screen retracts into the top of the door!) and they're in and scheduled to be installed on Sept. 18th! I'm so excited. So, that's something to look forward to.

I tell ya, this getting back into the swing of things for the school schedule is kinda kicking my butt. I guess we were so busy all summer and now we're thrown right back into more chaos. I feel like I haven't had much down time this summer, kwim?

Monday is a holiday and Buddy's out of school and the Evil Twin is off from work that day, so we all have a long weekend. We have some friends coming over tomorrow and a few other things lined up, so it should be a nice weekend. I hope you all have a fun weekend as well and I promise to try to keep up with other blogs better than I have been!!!


  1. I just finished reading "Bitter is the New Black" by Jen Lancaster.

    It was a tough read at first (her behaviour was selfish and just AWFUL). However, as her life began to change, I began to feel sorry for her. In the end, I really enjoyed it.

    I shall spend the weekend reading "Lean, Mean 13" by Janet Evanovich. I began the Stephanie Plum series IN JULY, and am now on the "last" book (currently in hardcover).

    I don't know what I will read after that!

    Enjoy your long weekend!

  2. I have Middlesex...OK I have 600 books here not read...I have heard from several friends that this one is good, so I will read it soon. Kind of good to start school off with a 3 day weekend!
