I texted Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets, the fine host of our weekly Week in Review, that I feel like a bit of a farce because I don’t really give all the dirty details of what really happens around here each week. It’s so frustrating because I put such an emphasis on being real because I love how much my stories help other people and I’d honestly die if anyone reading my stuff ever came to the conclusion that my life is a lot fluffier than it really is. So I guess I have to come to a truce with myself (my lower half is much stronger but my upper carries some brain tissue so it evens out) and just be okay with not telling everything. But, hang tight because I heard there’s been some media leakage around here so you may just be getting an inside scoop after all.
This is where I really need to insert a photograph. Dammit, blogging is tough. Here’s one of Lora and I from a long time ago. We sang karaoke that night. Christy is there too but she was probably getting hit on by someone off to the side of the camera. Hopefully not by the guy in the Hawaiian shirt. Where were we, anyway? That pub looks seedy af.
Can I just say something totally off tangent? Yay! Okay so see the wrinkles around my eyes? I LOVE THEM. I love it when people have them! I super huge adore smile wrinkles. If I could, I’d spread them on toast and let them drip down my finger. I don’t like the sun spots from all the years of obsessive tanning, but I love my smile wrinkles.
This is supposed to be about my week. Can you tell that I don’t have anything to say? Well, I did a day in the life of Monday last week and you can read about it here. The rest of the week was pretty decent, actually. I am in a huge organizing mood. I donated 6 bags of clothing/linens, got rid of a few bags of broken toys and miscellaneous garbage, and? I CLEANED OUT THE HOTYSSEY. My van was absolutely disgusting. I felt like I needed to offer people tetanus shots each time they got out of it.
But… I didn’t take any before or after photos. DAMN.
My sister Lori took her kids and Katie to a cool lodge in the middle of nowhere for the weekend. They picked Katie up on Thursday and she’s coming back today. While she was gone, I organized her room and put a little mattress on the floor in the corner for Callum to sleep. To say he loves Katie is an understatement; he loves her more than he loves me. Seriously. So we’ll see if he sleeps in there tonight.
Does this even qualify as a week in review? Man, I do a shitty job of blogging.
In case you’re wondering if the sun has come out at all lately, IT HASN’T. I’m pretty sure that God is getting me back for all the times that I didn’t clap during the singing segment at church.
I think I should probably stop typing now.
Anyone else in a Spring cleaning mood? What else should I tackle?
What kinds of secrets do you think I’m harboring? Wouldn’t it be great if I told you that Andrew wears women’s underwear? Or that I work as a stripper once all the kids go to bed? NOW we’re talking. Man, my life is dull.
Favourite Easter candy?
If I really was a stripper, I’d pick Peeps.
