Here is my new desk and craft table. I hate the cords below I need to work on those. I am also on a quest to fill that big open space above.

Friday night we were invited to a dance party. It was a lot of fun. The family moved the table out of their dining room and set up professional color lights and a hanging ball light and profession speakers. (The daddy is or was a DJ). The children were wild, the moms ate in the kitchen and talked over the music and the daddies drank beer and got to know each other. It was about three hours and really reminded me of a junior prom or a sweet sixteen party. It was so fun and interesting. A mix of grown ups and kids but dads were there. We were home by 10:30 and kids were fast asleep!!

BUT

The boy was still up at the butt crack of dawn.

Men and Women are different example two:

 

1am child one comes into parent’s bed.

2am child one is removed (asleep) from parent’s bed.

3am child one comes back into parent’s bed.

3:30 child one is removed (asleep) from parent’s bed.

4am child two comes in parent’s room to inform them she has puked in her bed and would like her sheets changed and floor cleaned.

4:30am both children are on top of parents in their bed.

5am both children are removed (asleep) from parent’s bed.

 

6am

Me: man I’m beat after last night….

J: Why what happened?

 Today a very close friend of mine, perhaps one of the few people who really know me told me she thought I might be a bit off lately. My blog posts have been odd, my recent communication has been less then normal and my daily activity with others has decreased. Other then the communication with her which I need to have and miss (it seems to be a victim of poor timing) the truth is I think I am trying desperately to be off on all other aspects. With this food addiction I am trying to be less indifferent and focus on what really matters. 

 

I cleaned my house today from top to bottom and don’t get me wrong it feels good no great to have a clean house but this is the first time it has been cleaned (I mean more then a spot mop and a quick sweep) in months. And I was always stressed out by that but not now. Not if it means spending time doing something worthy of my time. I think in the past I have felt a certain responsibility to all around me and another truth is other then my children, folks can do fine all on their own without me. That is a freeing revelation. I am not responsible for everyone’s happiness. Talk about a light bulb moment. 

 

So if you come to my house and you stick to the floor I’m sorry or if I haven’t offered to host a playdate I apologize but I have spent the last six years realizing the world goes round and round whether I’m peddling it or not so I should just enjoy the time I have in the moment.  

 

 

Plus there’s always laundry….

I really love Lily Allen so much!

Lily Allen – Everything’s Just Wonderful

Do you think, everything, everyone, is going mental,
It seems to me that it’s spiralling outta control and it’s inevitable,
Now don’t you think,
This time is yours, this time is mine,
Its temperamental,
It seems to me, we’re on all fours,
Crawling on our knees,
Someone help us please

Oh Jesus Christ almighty,
Do I feel alright? No not slightly,
I wanna get a flat I know I can’t afford it,
It’s just the bureaucrats who won’t give me a mortgage,
Well it’s very funny cos I got your xxxxxx money,
And I’m never gonna get it just because of my bad credit
Oh well I guess I mustn’t grumble,
I suppose that’s just the way the cookie crumbles.

Chorus
Oh yeah, I’m fine,
Everything’s just wonderful,
I’m having the time of my life.

Don’t you want something else,
Something new, than what we’ve got here,
And don’t you feel it’s all the same,
Some sick game and it’s not insincere,
I wish I could change the ways of the world,
Make it a nice place
Until that day, I guess we stay,
Doing what we do
Screwing who we screw

Why can’t I sleep at night,
Don’t say it’s gonna be alright,
I wanna be able to eat spaghetti bolognaise,
and not feel bad about it for days and days and days.
In the magazines they talk about weight loss,
If I buy those jeans I can look like kate moss,
Oh no it’s not the life I chose,
But I guess that’s the way that things go,

Chorus x2

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba etc.

Oh Jesus Christ almighty,
Do I feel alright? No not slightly,
I wanna get a flat I know I can’t afford it,
It’s just the bureaucrats who won’t give me a mortgage,
Well it’s very funny cos I got your xxxxxx money,
And I’m never gonna get it just because of my bad credit
Oh well I guess I mustn’t grumble,
I suppose that’s just the way the cookie crumbles.

Oh well I guess it’s just the way that things go,
I suppose that’s the way the cookie crumbles,
Oh well I guess it’s just the way that things go,
I suppose that’s the way the cookie crumbles
