Lost passwords & shiny objects

I started reblogging again on Monday; Tuesday I forgot my password. I either saw a shiny object or a squirrel...or maybe it was a shiny squirrel. At any rate, after a day of trying to figure it out, I figured out how to reset and this time have written it down. Now to remember where I wrote it down.

As of today, I officially have only 6 days left until I go back to work. I took the first two weeks of the new year off to organize my house, and hopefully, at the same time, organize my life. I think this would have been better accomplished if I had started on Vyvanse prior to taking the time off. I find it extremely hard to focus and/or concentrate on any one thing at any given moment for longer than 20 minutes before another thought pops into my mind and I MUST immediately go do that task. I have always been like that but I think that as I age it is either getting worse or I am more acutely aware of it. Either way, it's time to do something about it.

The downstairs, minus the playroom, is complete. I completed my bedroom yesterday. I will work on one of the boys rooms today and the other tomorrow, and lastly, it will be my office. I need that to be as orderly as possible in order to create a zen like work atmosphere. January is almost half over and I would like this to be THE year that I accomplish somethiing and get out of the rut that my wheels have been spinning in for far too long.

Off to start on that task.....awwww, look at those squirrels chasing each other....what was I going to do???

Its been a long time, been a long time, been a long, not so lonely, time...

At the behest of my "old" friend, I am going to try to write a new blog entry every day. This was supposed to have started on January 1, but I am on vacation from work and as such, my New Year doesn't officially start until January 17, when I am forced to rejoin the work force. If it doesn't make sense to you, that's's my blog and my New Year....I can do what I want.

I haven't really given much thought about what I'll write or if I'll have a theme. I'll go out on a limb and say that there will be no theme and, as with most things in my life, I'm just gonna wing it! I have pretty flown by the seat of pants thus far, why change??

Just read this "word of wisdom" regarding chaos (which, incidentally, as I've said before, I am a dweller in the City of Chaos in the State of Denial): "Our real discoveries come from chaos, from going to the place that looks wrong and stupid and foolish." Not certain how I'm supposed to discover something by going somewher that looks wrong, stupid or foolish...that just seems, well, wrong, stupid and foolish.

Are you happy, T~F'n~P?

He just full of 'em.....

The other night on our way to taking Michael to wrestling practice, I heard Daniel sniffling loudly from the backseat. I turned around and asked "Do you need a tissue?". He said "No thanks, I can just do this {SNIFF SNIFF} and the boogers go back up." I then said "Wouldn't you rather have a tissue to blow the boogers into and then you don't have to worry about them anymore." His reply was priceless. "No thanks, Mom, that would be a waste of boogers."

We worry about that boy!!

Conversations with a 4 year old

My conversation with Daniel last night went something like this:

Me "Do you want some macaroni and cheese?"

Daniel "Will it make me yellow"

Me "Will it make you yellow? No, it will not make you yellow."

Daniel "Okay, then I'll have some"

I just love that little guy!!
