Oh my gracious, you guys! I miss you! How are things? I hope they’re wonderful!
Let me explain my absence via random thoughts I’ve had in the past few days, k? Okay… here goes:
Fin has a project due soon – create a diorama and write up a mini report. -after a trip to the dollar store, the px and walmart, we switched from sharks to polar bears because it’s nearly impossible to find a shark figurine.
School pictures thoughts: “oh my goodness, they’re so cute!”, “what kind of packages are these? They just don’t work for me!”, “Good grief, there should be a ‘multiple kid’ discount”, “okay…. I need so many 8×10’s, 5×7’s, WAIT…. I could get this one! HALLELUJAH! Oh, just kidding, I need one more 5×7 than that….dang”. “crap! They’re due soon, Amber! PICK A PACKAGE!”.
Maddie has a field trip coming up — remember to send that money in.
Maddie’s class needs paper towel rolls. Spent the weekend unrolling and rerolling all of your paper towels to be able to send a lot in.
Enjoy the weather!
David went golfing, that whole day was a chaotic who know what’s going on kind of mess. It turned out to be a good day overall but there was a lot of confusion and indecisiveness happening.
Bo got fixed. Don’t forget to take him in to get his stitches removed. Call to see what day that was because none of the paperwork says which day. Called – “check your paperwork”. “okay? Thanks?” Pick a random day to take him in to get them removed.
Call maintenance about stove, dishwasher & light bulb. Hope they fix random other things while they’re here so you don’t have to point them out or call again later.
Crap! Do the kids need more lunch money in their accounts?!
Declog the vacuum for the bajillionth time. Seriously, you need to save up and invest in a GOOD vacuum! (Anyone wanna send me one to review?! Haha)
BLOG, AMBER! BLOG! For the love of God, you haven’t put up a post in forever! Sit down, focus, okay, good!
Sits down only to forget every thought that entered my brain.
Don’t forget to get Alex, Kayla & Ryan birthday presents.
Ask what they all want because you’re clueless.
Figure out a Halloween costume for Owen.
Thank Fin & Maddie for being so easy when it comes to costumes.
Remind Fin & Maddie that they can’t constantly play in their costumes or they’ll fall apart before Halloween.
For the love of all things holy, lady! Shampoo your damn carpets!
Figure out what David has going on on the night of the kids’ Fall festival.
Oh, he has to work…okay, not going to that then. Crap. Oh, the kids won’t really care. Or will they? Oh well, they’ll live.
Don’t forget what day Owen’s heading to the sitter next week. Man, what should we do with those free hours?! Target? Clean the house? Nap?
Don’t freak out when you see the phone bill! Remember that you upgraded and it’s that weird, “Next” plan.
YAY! I’m getting a new dishwasher! That was unexpected but exciting! Wait, it’s a rental home… does it really matter?!
YES! At least you won’t be hand-washing dishes anymore. Man! We go through a LOT of dishes!
Did you thank Michelle for the cake?!
Crap, did I send a snack with Maddie?! Oh, it’s Tuesday! Nevermind…. it’s not snack day.
Man, I miss the PreK snack set up! Once a month send in enough snacks for the whole class –soooo much easier than remembering it daily (except tuesday).
Figure out a plan for Maddie’s birthday already! YOU NEED TO LET PEOPLE KNOW! Gosh.
Amber, good grief….did you eat lunch today? Or anything?
Man, Pot roast sounds really good! Gonna go to the store tomorrow to get stuff to make it! Yum.
Man, that pot roast hit the spot.
SHUT UP BO! It’s a yard sale! They’re not going to come eat you!
Good Lord, Bo! It’s the freakin’ mailman! It’s a package! It’s not going to kill us, Bo! Shut your trap!
Damn it, Bo! Don’t jump the fence with that cone on your head! You’re going to pop a stitch!
Man, I’m surprised that dumb dog hasn’t popped a stitch out yet. Thank God for that!
Man, I’m tired! It’s too early to be awake…. oh crap! It’s 7:30! Get out of bed, woman! Wake up your kids! Shit!
Crap, what should I make for dinner?! Dang, this is why I used to meal plan! I really should do that again!
Don’t forget to cut those book things out for Maddie’s class!
And that’s not even half of the crazy thoughts going through my mind right now.
See, guys! See why I’ve been too distracted to live in blogland?! *insert sad, pouty, forgive me face here*
So tell me, what have you all been up to?
Oh & here’s a photo because no post is complete without at least one photo, right?! *wink*
These kids…. I just love em!
