Can I Just Freak Out for a Minute?



It's the flies.

The flies have pushed me over the edge.

The flies and the bits of glass from my studio all over the floor.

and the Legos.

and the dog hair.

and the money. Or the complete and total lack thereof.

If only the flies and bits of glass and the Legos and the doghair had some monetary value.

And the kids. The door opens and they rush in with 45 more flies, getting the dogs all wound up causing their fur to fly. They rush in to play Legos. And then they eat popcorn and ask what time is is and what is for dinner and can I...can I....can I????
And there are so many of them. For ever kid I birthed or signed papers for, there is an extra 1.5 kid in my personal space, and I might be paranoid, but I think they might be staring at me wondering why there is so much dog hair and Lego and popcorn and flies in my house and why don't I clean it up like their mothers do?

I haven't had an Etsy sale over 5 dollars in days. And $7,000,000 extra bills came this month. I am working. La La La. I'm working. I can't hear you....I'm not listening...

But I am listening. It sounds like buzzing. It is a fly. In my coffee.

And what IS for dinner?

Awwwwwwww! Sounds very hectic. But joyful and full, too. We all could use a money boost :) I don't have the kids or the dogs or the flies, but sometimes I have too much boredom and I'm too lonely. Sigh. My hubby comes home soon :) Your mosaics are lovely.

OH you are so funny.......I understand the insane feeling too! but I wouldn't trade summer with the kids for anything because once they go back my house is eerily quiet and creepy and I miss them so much. Thanks for making me laugh, I needed it and its nice to know that other moms tend to loose their sanity at times as well...

Oh good, it's not just me. Ash walks in the door and first thing out of my mouth is, "do you know what your children did today!?"

BTW your verification word is "hugge" which is obviously the word hug and huge smooshed together. So here's a hugge for ya.

But they are such happy sounds(well, except for the flies)! I used to love the sounds of kids in the summer. Now I love the sound of grandson #1 (and #2 will be here adding his considerable noise next week).

Love, Mary P

it's amazing what leftovers, a good cry, a good night's sleep and a good sale will do for one's psyche : )

It's SO good to hear from you Mary!

Lmao! It's only 6:30 am right now and I'm already on that crazy-land train, Sis. :) so you just gave me a good laugh and a chance to change perspective for a few minutes. Thanks!
I have to say, I've been in a house with dog hair this week and I KNOW they had more than you--trust me. Skeevy.

Life with Kaishon said...

: ) Oh my. Oh my. Oh my.
I thought of you this week because I tried to sell some books on ebay and it was disastrous. I am not sure if that is how you spell that word and I don't feel like looking it up. Please forgive me : )

We went horseback riding yesterday and I swear, the flies had to have followed us home. They were in my car. They were at the pool. And last night, when I was all cozily tucked into my bed, there were MORE FREAKING FLIES. I think I am going crazy too.

Kaish and Naji have 5 extra friends in the house as I type. I like them oodles. But holy heck are they ever messy.

I hope your flies go away soon. And I hope you make 7,000,000 dollars this week to pay all the bills! Crossing fingers!
