Giveaway follow-up and spring break news

I've been so neglectful of my blog lately. I just haven't been able to think of anything worth sharing. Which is why I'll never be a bloggy rock star. The stress of having to be "on" EVERY.SINGLE.DAY would push me over the brink of sanity on which I spend most of my time teetering already.

So, my hairbow giveaway... I promise to select a winner and post it later this evening. I still have to write all the names down and choose one out and I've been putting that little 10 minute task off for no good reason. I could be doing it right now instead of blogging, but I'm not. So....

I truly appreciate all of you who stopped by my blog for SITS spring fling. It was fun, wasn't it? Anyway, keep checking back and if you win, I'll let you know ASAP.

We've been spring breaking 'round these parts this week and it hasn't gone exactly as I'd planned in my head. We spent the first few days at my parents house doing thrilling things like sitting around on the deck and watching the little angels dig in the dirt and weed the garden. My parents have a swingset, but the boys much prefer using the garden tools and getting filthy from head to toe. While the adults watched, occasionally refereeing arguments before one child got his eyes scratched out with a child-sized rake. Hypothetically speaking, of course.

It sounds like it might have been relaxing, but I'm one of those people who prefers to GO and DO. Unless I'm at my own home. Then it's much easier to sit on my rear catching up on my DVR'ed shows and playing on Facebook than tackling any real house chores. But when I'm not surrounded by an overwhelming amount of REAL LIFE, I like to be on the go and enjoy my limited liberation.

We got home Tuesday evening where I discovered that the Law of Entopy had enacted itself upon my house in our absence. The place was moderately neat when we left. I know this because I spent a large portion if the week before cleaning it. But we came home to a pigsty.

I wanted to take the boys on all kinds of fun outings, but the house was filthy, plus it was cold and rainy outside. The filth, the cold and the rain pretty much forced me to stay home on Wednesday and do nothing. At all. Not to mention my body is still adjusting to Daylight Savings Tine, which left me exceptionlly tired. So not only did I do nothing, but I took a nap to help me recover from the nothingness.

How long can DST be used as an excuse for laziness exhaustion? I'd like to think at least a full week.

But now the end of spring break is too quickly encroaching so we're squeezing All the Fun into a couple of days. I did manage to take the boys to the museum this morning and we're going swimming this afternoon. Who knows what tomorrow holds! But I'm hoping it's at least one more nap.


  1. DST has me exhausted too! I've went to bed by 830 or 9 every night this week!! How sad is that!?!?

  2. I hope you get the nap, too! DST has been unusually troublesome this year. Everyone I've spoken to this year has gotten a good butt kickin'

    I'm just glad you've made it this far through the Spring Break week without anyone's hypothetical eyes getting scratched out : )

  3. I am having a harder time than usual adjusting to DST. I thought it was just me....glad it is you too!

    Have a great weekend!
