What I Did Today

What I did at home:

-wore a hat all day, one of my three turquoise hats, to stay warm

-had hat head, but didn't shower

-finished The Help and cried a little. Fantastic book...

-entered the Target sweepstakes to win a $5,000 Target gift card- for the third time

-had 2 children home early due to a winter storm

-talked briefly to EC Anne... and missed her terribly

-pulled Posie out of the dryer-for the 2nd time in her short life- while putting a wet load in... and was so thankful I didn't start the dryer with her inside

What I did on line:

-talked about how Marin, at the age of 40 months, has suddenly realized that SHE doesn't have a twin sister. It never occurred to her, until today, that she won't EVER have a twin sister. She was heartbroken- sobbing. Poor baby, I thought, as I felt my own heart break while ALSO trying not to laugh

-wrote a haiku for a friend of fb:
"Snowing and blowing
Please send food and strong liquor
Wait, I'm off to ski"
(please note, HE skis... not me. THAT is a whole 'nother post.)

-felt inspired to write a blog post of Winter Haiku... until I realized I really wasn't good at writing Haiku and that I also didn't feel like writing about winter

-sent out several emails that I've been needing to send out

What I did NOT do online today:

-send that email to Girlfriend (not going to either... won't help)

-update my facebook status with the color of bra I was wearing

-accuse anyone of lying about what color bra they were wearing... though I thought about it

-google search to find out if more than one "haiku" had an "s" on the end

What I did around town:

-had coffee with a friend

-almost got stuck in my own driveway

-decided it was too crappy to go to the grocery store... which I regretted later when there was no food in the house

What I'm going to do next:

-fondly pet the necklace and earing set that has been lost and now found... and whisper to them how much mama has misssssssssssssed them

-spell check this, and then hit publish instead of deleting for The Lame

-see if there are any new episodes of Brothers and Sisters to catch up on

-go to sleep

My life, it is super fascinating. Please don't envy me because I'm interesting.

I don't know what you're talking about, "The Lame." pssshh. I can't think of a single thing *I* did today, and it didn't snow where I live.

Oh, and ditto about the not calling people out on the bra thing. After reading all the "purple"s and "red and white lace" I felt like I needed to DEFEND my "white" but really people? It's a boring Thursday afternoon and I am a stay-at-home mom. What were you expecting?? And are you seriously posting "lace" in your description? Publicly??

Oh, I really liked this post! And I feel so sorry for Marin! One of my many reasons for wanting one more baby was that I thought Henry might feel left out: the two big boys, the twins, and then him all by himself.

clueless but hopeful mama said...

I, too, loved this post. Does that make me The Lame? (Don't answer that.)

The Help! LOVED IT! Still have yet to read something as good since!

Facebook almost-updates: HAHAHA!

Marin: Oh my. So sad. So sweet. Isn't it amazing how their minds work?

oooo! I'm going to copy you AGAIN! And I wore a hat all day yesterday also. Our house is COLD.

I just realized I don't have a twin either- now I'm starting to cry.

Aw, poor Marin. I felt the same way about the bra colors. lol

Poor, sweet Marin.

I just started The Help and am really liking it so far.
