Mildewed Legos and Pure Exhaustion

Y'all know I love y'all right? Every person that ventures onto my blog, and especially those that choose to return on a regular basis, I'm thankful for each of you all (though I do have more love for those who stalk me than those who are just googling weird ass crap like 'denture fetish' and end up here).

So, I hope that y'all know I'm not ignoring Inklings, and I haven't abandoned it.

The move is at the end of the week, movers will be here tomorrow, and I'm purely exhausted. In between packing, cleaning, sorting, etc, I manage to jump on my mom groups for a second (it's an addiction I can't stop right now... it's my daily dose of drama that I'm not in, but can sit back and laugh my ass off at it), and pass out for an hour or so nap to recharge my battery.

I'm seriously heading to the doctor when I get to Arizona. I know I'm under stress, but I'm 99% sure I've got hypothyroidism. We'll see in a few weeks.

So, know that I love y'all, that if I do jump online real quick to post some craziness or do an update, it's on the Inklings facebook page. (We have over 400 people over there now- Inklings is growing!!)

It's funny, though. When I get an idea for a blog post, I do manage to pull up my computer, type a few words to get the idea out of my head, hit 'save' and then keep on with whatever I was doing. So, when things calm down, and this move is behind me, I do have some hella good posts planned.

Keep voting daily please, if you don't mind, even if there isn't a blog post. If we fall out of the top 25 because I was moving, I'll be a sad turtle.

I'll leave y'all with a quick few Tatted Mom tidbits to ponder...

Fun Game to Play with School Aged Kids: While they are watching TV or playing video games, stick your finger in their ear and say, 'Hey, there's something in your ear.' When they reply 'What?', yell out, 'My FINGER!!' It's amusing.

Appropriate Answer to Any Question Nowadays: Zombies. 'What does this weird rash look like?' 'Zombie bite'. 'Why is my kid acting weird?' 'Bitten by a zombie.'

What does a bucket of mildewed Legos, bleach, a bathtub, a colander, towels, and New Kids on the Block bed sheets all have in common? An hour of my life on a Monday night that led to my lower back giving out, that's what. But hey, now the Legos that were all funky are now clean and sanitized (and dried out so this doesn't happen again.)

Guess what's happening to me in 3 days? I get laid!!! Maybe I'll quit being such a bitch then, huh? Ha! I now, that's a good joke...

  1. Go take some vitamin D3. See if it helps. It may. It may not. It won't hurt. I suggest about 5000 IUs daily. If it helps, your move will be easier. It won't hurt you.

  2. I just found your blog, I thought the picture was really cute so I decided to read. :) I am one of those people who picks the book in the library with the cute girly cover and most of the time this method produces good results and it great when I don't have a particular book in mind. I loved this first post I read and I am looking forward to reading more. I read it with Paula Deens voice in my head, lol but then I watched your Vlog so don't worry I have your real voice in my head now. Loved the Vlog too and couldn't agree more. Anyway I am rambling as I tend to do. Just wanted to give you props and look forward to reading more. :)

    1. So glad you found my blog! I'm a cover/book person, too. I know I shouldn't be, but I am. Glad that my cover accurately represents my book... or however it should go in this metaphor, lol. Hope you continue to enjoy it!

  3. LOL on the NKOTB sheets too. From a former Jordan fan.
