No good very bad days...

aren't just for people. George, our normally happy camper, had to have a tooth extracted today. My wallet may never recover.

Not amused.


I can't be seen outside like this!

Slices of Life...

I Heart Faces Photo Challenge for this week. 

This is one of my favorite photos and popped right into my head as soon as I read the challenge...
  

Check out all the other entries at 

5 days...

     Five LONG days since my back exploded and my world shrunk to the four walls of my bedroom. This is getting old. I forced myself out of bed and downstairs yesterday, thinking "this isn't so bad". Between the drugs and the rest "I'm getting better". ::insert Pollyanna whistling::
    
     Windex bottle in hand I cleaned the accumulated finger and nose and paw prints off the windows. Tom took down our curtains for a much needed and overdue washing. The walls were even nastier, so I scrubbed away the grime... while sitting on the steps. I'm not a complete idiot. Or am I?

     This morning I am in pain. No, not achey.... pain. It is radiating up into my shoulder and down through my legs. I'm in noonebetterspeaktomedon'taskmeforanything pain. Now I'm waiting for the drugs to kick back in and my world to become comfortably numb again. I am stupid.

At least my curtains are clean, right?


     In better news. We have a tutor. She is taking over my job as Learning Coach for Gabe for the next two weeks.

This is the song running through my head... over and over and over...

Step on a crack...

MRIs are FUN!!

It's not true, you know. Stepping on a crack has never once been proven to break your mother's back. 


Struggle with mom when she's putting your 34 pounds of whiny little bum in the tub, however, is a totally different story. 


Now I see this most of the day...


Ruby and Max keeping me company.


and these...

Drugs are good.

The boys are learning to help each other... sort of... maybe...

No, mommy do it!!

On the bright side, I discovered a whole new world of people who are willing to do what I did, but for money. Now why didn't I think of that? Check out all the nice people at Care.Com who are more than happy to help you out when you are down for the count. (Pretty good slogan if I do say so myself... maybe they should pay me!)

Blue-green, greenish-blue, teal, aquamarine...

Whatever you wanna call it, it is now the official color of our family/living/class room. 
Only three more walls to go.

I've had this song going through my head all morning.

Mom Guilt

Do you ever feel like one of your children gets more attention than the others? One that is more fun to shop with... slightly better at conversations... shares the same hobbies... appreciates your sense of humor...? ::shifty eyes::  Uhm.. yeah, no, of course not. Who does that??

OK, but, what if one is an AWESOME model compared to the others. Cause you know, it all comes down to the photos.







In other news, I might be narrowing down on the paint colors for my hall and living room.  I'm not totally helpless, I really like this blue for the living room... 



but I'm having the hardest time picking for the hall. Now is your chance to affect the lives of people you barely know... WHICH COLOR????
From bottom to top is Olympic Timeless Taupe, Valspar Celery Root and Valspar Pine Bark. Help me! You don't even want to know how long my walls have been multi-colored.

OMGOMGOMGOMG!! It's SPRING!!!

Yes, I know, it isn't officially spring until tomorrow. Stop bringing me down you haters. It's just that I was raking up all the thousands of leaves that somehow were missed in the fall, and peeking out from under the damp, rotting piles were these...

and these...


and this...


I don't even know what THIS is. I was in such a frenzy of bulb distribution last fall that I can't remember which ones I planted, or where I planted them. Should make for edge of your seat excitement in the next few weeks. Heeeeeeeheehee!!!! Shut up, I am not a loser.

Had to share this... Yesterday I discovered my new favorite musician. Check her out HERE. Thank you Nie Nie!
