Here it is Sunday again. We have freezing rain, isn’t that lovely? Fortunately, everything here is pretty much iced in, so we have a good excuse for NOT going anywhere today. That means my husband is hiding in the bedroom playing Skyrim, and I am tortured with kids’ television while I try to catch up on some REALLY important work. Wait a minute, I stay home every day…
Many of my blogger friends are participating in the Circle of Moms Top 25 Funny Moms 2013. I got as far as staring at the registration form, but can’t bring myself to do it. I’m not a big self promoter, but I am curious how far I could go in it. Included in the running is Menopausal Mother, the blog I guest posted on this week, as well as many other blogs. Guess what? I found out you can vote for as many people as you want! If I change my mind about doing it, I guess you’ll see my blog up there with the rest of them. UPDATE: Oh hell, I did it, as you can see by the sidebar… so I’m “pending” if you would like to cast your vote.
Here’s all the fun stuff I did this week:
Monday Mr Coffee/Superhero/Robot Make Me Some Coffee! The perils of owning an automatic coffeemaker, in that its not as automatic as we would like it to be…
Tuesday How Mr Ed Could Interview for a Retail Job The group interview where I think they would have taken anyone. ANYONE!
Wednesday I took a mental health day. It didn’t help, I’m still insane.
Thursday Theme Thursday: Breastfeeding Gave Me Super Powers Really, I wouldn’t lie to you about that.
Friday The Sadder But Wiser Girl Visits the Menopausal Mother My first guest post-Twitter in Biblical times, with horrible reenactments by Barbies. Go check it out, and read her hilarious blog while you’re there.
Saturday REBLOG: Where Have All the Humans Gone? I voice my disdain for automated menus, and fantasize about having an automated mom menu. It could totally happen.
I was also one of the featured blogs on Bloggers.com on Friday, I thought that was pretty cool! If I can ever find an icon bigger than an eyelash, I’ll add it to my sidebar. Why are they so teeny? I don’t get it!
Posts By Others That I Loved This Week:
First, a confession. I am terribly behind on my reading all of my beloved blogs, due to my pain in my neck. Yes, it’s still there, not as bad as it was but it’s still somewhat bothersome. I vacillate between thinking it’s just muscle strain and thinking that I’m dying of one of seven different dread diseases. But enough about that, I’m hoping to get caught up for the week today, perhaps while sitting on the exercise ball or doing stretches.
However, there were a few great posts I DID read this week:
Chewed Gum and Other Treasures–Ninja Mom Because it’s happening at my house, right now.
The Dangers of Watching TV With Kids–Funny is Family Watching grown up TV with kids can be scary. I find it disturbing that my kids hear the word “trans vaginal mesh” and want to know what “mesothelioma” is…
Cats are Aliens and Bed Real Estate–Parenting, Illustrated With Crappy Pictures This explained so much to me…
(By the way, if you ever want to buy me a present she has her own “Crappy Shop” now!)
Best Search Engine Terms of the Week:
Troll farting glitter-No, I distinctly said unicorns fart glitter, not trolls.
Toilet girl tube-Hmmmm… I know how they found my blog but what the heck were they looking for?
Homemade fart-I thought all farts were homemade.
Fast cheese puns-Sorry, we only have slow cheese puns here.
Cats in cars-All I can think of is “All cats in cars, ALL THE TIME!”
Herpes must suck-No idea.
That’s all I’ve got. Have a great rest of your weekend, and let’s be careful out there! I mean that literally…
