My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.


The Friday Mish-Mash

Don't really know WHY I bother to keep up with the days of the weeks really... other than for Friday Mish-Mash. It's all one big Groundhog Day here lately, and I'm just not feeling as peppy as Bill Murray today.

Ava graced us with her (screaming) presence at 4am. Do you know what the "0" in 0400 hours stands for?... Oh gosh it's early! I nursed her for about 30 minutes while she beat me on the head, then finally caved and got up. Around 5:30 I convinced her to go back to sleep, and I followed suit. Of course when the phone rang at 6:45 (it was my personal alarm clock, Big J) I was not ready to get up. So I whacked snooze (he agreed to call me back in 10 minutes) and went right back to sleep. Even after he called again and I faked my being awake thru a ten minute phone call, I still didn't want to get up. So another 10 minutes passed before I dragged myself out of bed, got Faith dressed for school, got Ava back up, and started our day.

It's kind of gone downhill from there- I had some pictures printed and they looked like crap. I went to a grocery store and forgot my member's card and had to pay $1 more for lip balm and that just really pissed me off. The little things like that get me... sigh.

Well, I could sit here and bitch all day I suppose, but instead I will go do something productive like read 'Salem's Lot by Stephen King. And a little laundry too. Maybe clean the kitchen.

Haiku Friday

Michell said...

Sorry about the early wake up call. That kind of sucks. Hope you get a nap today.

I cleaned up 3 piles of dog crap first thing this morning. : ( Then I had to drive K to work because her car is in the shop. Then I took the wrong exit and added about 45 minutes to my drive home from her school. I think I want a do over. I want a nap too! : (

Karate? Oh I'm jealous too. I can't even hit a fly with a fly swatter. Great ku!

You kick some rookie ass. It's their darn faults for coming late to the party! And, sorry it's been a shitty week. Nothing's good at 0400.

Karate sounds like fun, I could probably use some of those moves at my story time.

Serina Hope said...

If karate alleviates these ass kicking urges, I am all in :)

twondra said...

Hope your day got better! I'm telling ya, an awesome plumber who knows karate isn't someone I'd want to piss off. :) Jef better watch those early morning alarms. :)

Patois said...

It sounds like you really needed that karate outlet. Great haiku.

It must be in the air. Doran has not been the solid sleeper he has been for about a month straight, and I'm out of practice. Let's hope it gets better for us all.
