Sometimes You Just Have To Say...WTF?

I had such good intentions this week~

  • I was going to paint every day.
  • I was going to write a review about The Other Boleyn Girl.
  • I was going to be well-rested.

Go ahead - ask me if I did any of these things - come on, ask!

The answer, as you can well see, is a resounding, "Oh, Hell No!"

I didn't get Jack Doodly Squat done, and whats more; I'm completely okay with that. The boys and I walked all over our little downtown the other day, which was really fun. We went to the old Pharmacy and had milkshakes at the groovy old lunch counter. We went several times to the new bakery for bread and scones, and cinnamon rolls for breakfast. I even took them into the (rip-off) antique store and (miracles of miracles) they not only didn't break anything, we had a blast looking at all the crazy stuff they had for sale in there. I promised them that today, which is payday, we would go and check out the other, newer consignment/antique store and they are champing at the bit to get going. I can't pass that up - I might have the makings of two treasure hunters on my hands, and next to hanging out in a library full of old, crumbling books, my second love is hanging out in a store of old, crumbling stuff, looking for the incredible deals.

I know - I'm never going to be really cool (kewl) at this rate. But you know? As long as I have my two great guys by my side, I don't really need the coolness affirmations.

And the review I promised to you this week? Its just going to have to take a back seat to hanging out with my very kewl kids.

Until next week!

If you DIDN'T shelve the review for hanging out, I'd be pissed as hell.

Enjoy your afternoon.

You have given me hope for a brighter future. Kids going into antique stores and NOT breaking anything? WTF, indeed. My little creatures break things at the HARDWARE STORE at this point.

What you did was WAYYYYY more "productive" than anything on your list. I know you know this, but I feel the need to point it out anyway. Good on ya, mate.
