I'm still here!

I'm still alive!  It's been one of those weeks...sick kids, no energy, gloomy weather (SNOW?'s snowing right now in Oregon) trying to get ready for Easter (Happy Easter!) and attempting to finish one of the million little projects in my head!

Dealing with this (poor crabby Binks):
 She just cut her two lower teeth and has a bad cold.  Being a NICU graduate and the youngest, she's naturally spoiled rotten, so she's spent most of the last week on my lap.  That means no computer time because she tries to bite the keyboard!

Feeling like this:

If You Give a Mom a Muffin

If you give a mom a muffin,

She'll want a cup of coffee to go with it.

She'll pour herself some.

Her three-year-old will spill the coffee.

She'll wipe it up.

Wiping the floor, she'll find dirty socks.

She'll remember she has to do laundry.

When she puts the laundry in the washer,

She'll trip over boots and bump into the freezer.

Bumping into the freezer will remind her

she has to plan for supper.

She will get out a pound of hamburger.

She'll look for her cookbook

("101 Things To Do With a Pound of Hamburger").

The cookbook is setting under a pile of mail.

She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow.

She will look for her checkbook.

The check book is in her purse

that is being dumped out by her two-year-old.

She'll smell something funny.

She'll change the two-year-old's diaper.

While she is changing the diaper, the phone will ring.

Her five-year-old will answer and hang up.

She'll remember she wants to phone a friend for coffee.

Thinking of coffee will remind her

that she was going to have a cup.

And chances are... If she has a cup of coffee,

Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.

And enjoying every minute with this (Say it with me now: "awww"):

  1. That muffins story is awesome! Thanks for sharing that. Sorry you're having a rough week-- hope the babe is all better soon. Can't say I'm sad that the teething era is mostly over around here.
