I didn't really do it . . . .

. . . ya' know - steal the ketch-up! I meant to put that at the end of Friday's post, but then forgot until after I got a few comments. I figured I would just wait until my next post to fess up! ha - Surely you didn't believe me?!

I also have to fess that I've become the worst blogger ever! Pitiful really! I'm going to try to start blogging more frequently. I noticed I like to read blogs that blog regularly. Not that I have much time to read blogs really - but when I do, that is the kind I like! I had plans to blog Saturday, after my kids went to bed - BUT then Carson threw-up and I've spent some time cleaning him and his bed. He is now on the couch - temp free {I hope} with Lonnie on guard duty. I figured I'd stay up tonight to catch up on things - such as painting, blogging, invoicing, receipts, etc . . . . - You get the picture! I said all that to say "although it is 1 am on Sunday morning - I'm going post this one with Saturday's date!" I mean, I was going to post anyways - and I have a post for today {I mean tomorrow - because it really isn't Sunday!}

Anyhoodle - I had this floating shelf on the wall in my studio. You could see it when I took pictures of myself. The other day, the joker fell off the wall! On some art I was working on to boot! It was the craziest thing. It probably had something to do with the 89 lbs. of crap that was on it! Glass was everywhere! I also had a ribbon holder that held some small rolls of ribbon. The ribbon I use to tie up my Thank You's and my Gift Certificates. It took so long to clean up the glass and drywall dust {from the screws leaving the wall anchors,} I just piled everything up in a pile On.The.Floor {big mistake} thinking I would find new homes for everything later OR put the shelf back up!


Thanks Em.

You like that, don't ya'? One.hot.mess. My plan for Sunday - roll it all back up and put the box somewhere other than the floor. Funny thing is, she put it all back in the box! Just what you see. I carried it downstairs and put it on the table for the photo op and to remind me to do it in the daylight hours on Sunday.

I know you guys are sick and tired of hearing about Shrek - I sure am. But I have a really funny story. That involves my kids favorite part of the movie {Shrek 1.} I know you all have seen it. Remember the part where Fiona wakes up before everyone and she is out and about, singing in the woods. She happens onto a bluebird and they sing a little duet . . . . until Fiona sings such a high pitch shrill scream that the bird blows up and bust?? Okay - keep that in your mind.

The other day the kids {all 4 of them} and I went to Target! Now, I don't know about your Target - but little cutie birds hang out in the parking lot of ours - usually around the buggy corrals. I always park by the corrals {for obvious reasons.} I saw a bird hoping around looking for some discarded popcorn {or something edible.} He was so close to me that if I bent down I could have pet him! Well I had everyone unbuckled and they were all standing {except Em} waiting to jump out of the van. Picture it - They are all at the door in front of Em's car seat - all waiting to jump. I said in a whisper, "aw, guys look it's a bird." Like robots on speed ALL 4 OF MY KIDS turned as quick as they could towards the bird, even Em is straining as hard as she can to see the bird - and like a choir of angels singing God's praises, all in tune with one another, ALL 4 OF MY KIDS started singing Fiona's high shrill song - at the top of their lungs! ALL 4 OF MY KIDS were trying to make that bird explode!!!

WHAT AM I RAISING!?!?!?!

Of course that bird took off like a bat out of hell! I just stared at all my children as they started cracking up. Hudson even said to Carson, "give me 5!" I got them all out of the van and gave them the big "I can't believe you guys did that" convo. I even said to Em that I expected way more out of her - who cares that she is only 15 months old!

Yes, I need alot of prayer!


I have a sneaky peeky that I should post the finished piece on Sunday! I never change the lens on my camera. That is why YOU always see the blurry. It's that special lens that does that. It makes a great photo for these sneak peeks!

So, has anyone else been watching Harper's Island?? I normally have to watch it online or on Demand because it comes on while I'm getting kids in bed. Uhmmm, just watched it before I started this post . . . . FREE-KAY! My favorites got hacked off tonight. I'm so sad!!! And freaked! At the same time! I don't know about you, but I think I would swim off the island at this point! And please, oh please don't let there be a second bad guy with Cutie-McCute-Cute Jimmy!

I have to finish up the above painting! Until tomorrow!

Totally relate to parking near the cart corral and everyone waiting in line for the door to open so they can push each other aside to be the 1st one out of the truck!!

I'm thinking you're in soooo much trouble when you're gang of 4 "learns" more inventive and ingenious ways to get at mom. Can't wait to hear of those stories!

Roxanne said...

We've been watching Harper's Island, but we've been out of town (for 10 long days), so we haven't seen the past two episodes.

But I agree...it is freaky-weird.

i am in LOVE with harper's island! i'm going to be so sad when its over in only a few weeks. i'm not typically one to like the scary movie and yet this one is strangely intriguing. perhaps it is the one hour time limit - it keeps the intensity level more manageable...and leaves you wanting just a little bit more. SO GREAT!
