I Blame The Twitter ...

So, lots has been happening lately and I wanna share ... really, I do. But, because of the business, sitting and writing a serious, informational and stimulatingly interesting post seems a daunting task. Which, explains why the ol blog has been ignored as of late.

Also, there is the fact that Facebook and Twitter and texting - which consist of limited space capacity, therefor requiring short, concise and to the point bullet point type statements - is just faster and easier. So, being less daunting than, ya know, paragraphs and junk, it gets more of my attention.

SO, in an effort to revive the bloggy bug, I have decided to declare today "Blog Like You're Tweetin Day"! So, the following is a day in the life of me, in Facebook/Twitter/text-like style.

(AKA: a list of the random)


**Nuthin beats waking up, stepping outta bed and landing in cat puke. NUTHIN!

**Dear Cali-Cat ... I'ma need you to CHEW your food. Work on that, will ya?

**COFFEE!!!!!!!!!!! Where is the coffee? Seriously? There must be some in this house somewhere!!!

**It's 32 degrees outside and Hattie picks today to dress like a girl. SO thankful for tights!

**Sophie is watching Monsters, Inc - mainly cause H is not here to scream and hide under the coffee table. Wee bit of a scaredy cat, that one is.

**Meanwhile, there is a road crew at work outside my front window causing my La-Z-Boy to randomly shake. It's like a roller coaster without the thrills!

**Barbie is dancing around my living room with some kinda squirrel like creature ... Note to self: GET THE KID BOY DOLLS!

**CORRECTION - it was NOT a squirrel, it was the Chick-Fil-A cow ... Note to self: GET GLASSES CHECKED!

**Will the person that created Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer please stand up? Let's all give him/her a hand, shall we?

**If I could bottle and hand out the sound of Sophie's laughter, I am fairly certain the world would be a happier place and there would be peace throughout the land.

**If I could bottle and hand out the sound of Sophie's tantrums ... well, let's just say it would not be near as pretty.

**Trying to teach a 3yr old with X.A.D. (X-treme Attitude Disorder) to live with the consequences of her own choices is heartachingly painful.

**Would not trade said 3yr old for all the coffee in the world - even if it DID come with Peppermint Mocha creamer.

**SEVENTEEN DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (that is for my twitter friends, who I will see in SEVENTEEN DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

**Dear Kitchen Fairy - I need you to step up your game. Cause when Barbie goes swimmin in the greasy water filled crockpot basin that you have yet to clean, it aint pretty. Thank You.

**I am in desperate need of the following: GRACE!!! A pedicure. MERCY!!! An eyebrow wax. FORGIVENESS!!! Guess 3 outta 5 aint too shabby. And, ya know, HE is all I really need!!!!

**But, I really do need an eyebrow wax ... (Erica Jean Kirk) ...

**Sophie went up stairs for a few minutes and came back down nekked. This happens with stunning frequency, which begs the question ... WHAT exactly goes on up there?

**Lead Me To The Cross, where Your love poured out. Bring me to my knees, Lord I lay me down. Rid me of myself, I belong to You. Oh lead me ... Lead Me To The Cross.

**Planning out the placement of outdoor Christmas decorations ... and yes, I'm drawing pictures and a map. Cause I am just that nuts.

**I've said it before and I'll say it again. Chocolate is good. All Glory to Him.

**Has anyone seen the attachments to my vacuum cleaner? The corners are startin to look a little funk-a-delic around here.

**Is it just me, or is Dora just a really loud little kid? I mean, should her mama y papa be concerned? How do you say "get that girl a hearing test already" in spanish? Anyone?

**Sophie walked away from Nick Jr and came back with the Mamma Mia DVD ... that's my girl!!!

**This peaceful moment brought to you by nap time ... Aaaahhhhh...

**Laundry ... I blame Eve.

**Celery & peanut butter for lunch. Is it wrong that I pretend it's CHOCOLATE and peanut butter? Cause, if pretending that is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

**Turnin the (faux)pod on and jumpin into Genesis. Beth Moore is ROCKIN my world with the Patriarchs right now. What the world intended for evil, God has redeemed. OH! He is so faithful!

**Watchin last week's Biggest Loser, this show makes me cry. So does laundry, but not for the same reason.

**One of my fave times of the day is watching Sophie stare out the window looking for Hattie's bus to come down the road. She can hardly stand the wait.

**Looking through the Black Friday ads ... and thanking God that I live with a forgiving man. He's gonna be gettin up EARLY that day!

**Sophie has a friend (sweet Evy) over for a playdate ... she is NOT a very gracious hostess ... gonna need to work on that one. (hanging head in shame)

**Little girls in princess dresses, spinning through my living room, singing out of tune and giggling till they fall down. This is my life and it is good.

**I am NOT a fan of the bus being late on rainy days ... my mind goes all kinds of places. More Spirit please!

**Hattie came home in clean clothes (unHEARD of this school year) and immediately spilled juice down her front. Love it.

**I asked Hattie what she did at school today ... and she answered me. She read stories. I asked if it was fun ... and she answered. She said yes. That right there, THAT is a conversation. Praise HIM!

**One girl is sleeping (baby A), two girls are watching Toy Story 2 and one girl is hiding under the coffee table. Three guesses as to which is which.

**There is a large hole in the street outside my front window. The sun has gone down. This could get ugly. I may turn out the lights, make popcorn and watch.

**Phone calls from far away friends at just the right time are just about the sweetest thing there is. So thankful for the AMAZING people He has brought to me. BLESSED!

**Hattie is now GLUED to the TV watching Toy Story 2. Go figure.

**OK, the laundry is caught up ... but then I walked in the kitchen. A VICIOUS circle is what this housework thing is.

**Do you ever go to fix dinner and, after staring blankly into every cabinet and the fridge, wonder to yourself WHY chocolate is not a food group? Wouldn't life be so much easier if it was?

6 of ya left some love:

Been missing your tweets. I was trying to save on phone bill costs so I stopped getting tweets to my phone...didn't work...might just need to get those tweets again.
Anyhoo, so glad to catch up. :)
