Another Fun Monday

We all had a long weekend, thanks to the Veterans Day holiday on Friday. The Evil Twin is a Veteran, so we all thanked him and treated him like a king. I mean, come on! The dude's ass was OWNED by the Air Force for 8 years. No, he didn't serve war time, but he did help with things related to Desert Shield. (or Storm, whatever that first one was).

And that's all I will say about that.

But, we did have 3 days off work/school. Except me. I'm here, 24/7 doing my thing. Honestly, do you think a person such as myself will get a break even when they don't bring in very much money, but do a large part of keeping the household running? I didn't think so. I'm used to it by now.

So, that is why I didn't update on Friday.

Today, the Evil Twin is back to work, the children are both in school and I am trying to get in the groove and be productive.

Right now, I'm eating little mozzarella balls marinated in olive oil that I bought at the deli. Don't judge me! I never eat lunch. (This is true - at nearly 5 foot 9, I weigh 114 lbs). I'm very stressed and I am a stress non-eater.

Currently, I'm sitting here in my undies - because my shorts fell off. But, I need to get in the shower and decide what will be my tasks for the afternoon. I have a variety of choices (as per usual)...but do I want to tackle chores to the East or to the West (I only do one direction a day to bundle the errands and save gas). And, I'm not even a hippie. Just cheap.

Have a nice Monday, hooligans!



  1. I'm thinking chores to the North by North/West..... and probably a good idea to solve that shorts falling off issue before going out ;-)

  2. Hope your Monday was productive and you got your chores done. I saw a sign once that said People only appreciate what I do when I stop doing it. Or something like that. Silly but true. Sometimes I'd like to just take a day off. We should just declare Mom's Day off and all run away for the weekend. But the crap would just be waiting when we got back. And it wouldn't be worth it.

  3. Good LORD woman, 5'9" and 114 lbs? How do you exist at that weight?? I'm 5'10" and 150 lbs, and I'm not exactly fat - roundish, yes but average weight for my height. Eat some more of those mozzerarella balls girl! And pass some this way, won't you?


  4. I admire your ability to organize and maintain your home with creativity and frugality.

    I don't know where you get your energy.
