My Week: The Good, The Better, and The Best!


Is it considered stealing if you borrow someone else’s idea?  I like the idea of “wrapping up” the week.  Several bloggers do this and I think that it’s a fabulous idea.  I’m thinking Sunday is a good day to do this.  At least this week… So here goes.

buddy on papa elf's lapLAST SUNDAY -I scrutinize the reasons why I love Christmas in Let The Holidays Commence!  And now a song just started in my head.  “Last Sunday I gave all the ways, I love Christmas and all the holidays…” (Think Wham! Last Christmas, and it’s like a virus in your brain).  It’s a gene problem, people!


garfield christmasMONDAY-I delved into the finer points of how to get your house ready for the holidays. TSBWG Exclusive Guide to Getting Ready for the Holidays.  There were no things made from scratch, because Martha Stewart does NOT live at my house.  I also shared my three fave blogs on my installment for the blog challenge I’ve been participating in, The Getting to Know the Blogger Challenge:  Blogs I Visit.  This was hard, because I REALLY hate playing favorites…


Christmas-TreeTUESDAY-I dreamed, and shed a couple of tears realizing that I’ll never be the owner of a fake fireplace.  My Christmas List, No Holds Barred.  The highlight of this particular day was that Amber Dusick (you know, the author of Parenting, Illustrated With Crappy Pictures) liked my post.  You know, when I shared HER BLOG on MY WALL.  My husband was not impressed, and rolled his eyes at me when I jumped up and down.  Still, it’s like knowing a famous person, cept different…  You’ll all know if she starts following my blog because I will probably pee my pants.  I really need to get out more…


purple priusWEDNESDAYAwards! I got AWARDS!  I answered lots of questions, and found out later that I probably was doing the blogging equivalent of a chain letter.  I don’t care, I got AWARDS!  Somebody likes me!  It took me a long time to complete this, because it took me a long time trying to figure out how many famous Wards I knew…  I also wrote a letter to my car, in the post appropriately A Letter To My Car because didn’t you know it’s a little known fact that cars can READ?   Amber Dusick liked my post again.  Her post, that I shared.  DAMMIT PEOPLE, LET ME HAVE MY LITTLE PARTY IN MY HEAD!!!!!!


catsandsmTHURSDAY-I posted a little homage to getting over 200 views on my blog.  Most Views Ever…  I figured I’d better be all over that while it lasted…  Then I finished the blogger challenge, with The Getting To Know The Blogger Challenge:  The Rest.  Hopefully I went out with a bang.


I'm freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...FRIDAY-Life got in the way and stuff.  I reblogged a classic.  The ADD Mom Goes Out…Alone.

SATURDAY-One more reblog, the sequel.  The ADD Mom Goes Out… With Children.  It was really supposed to be a series.  I got distracted.  I really hate when I do that.

SUNDAY-Well, here we are… Sunday.  And I am writing this.

In addition I would like to follow the lead of another blogger, the first one below, actually, because I think it’s nice to acknowledge good reads.  I’m going to list my fave blog posts of the week!

Explaining HeavenAtlantamomofthree-I have kids with lots of questions.  I want to try these books.  🙂

Why Do They Wrap Those?momtimes4– HA HA HA!  I just love her blog!

Say What?  Inappropriately Random (Parenting, Illustrated With Crappy Pictures)-This post brought a new acronym to join LOL and ROFLMAO, ITIPAPMPFL-Stands for “I Think I Peed And Pooped My Pants From Laughing.  It’s not just the post itself, it’s the comments!  She hasn’t been posting as much lately, but this more than made up for it.

Holy Sh*t (Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva)-It’s not just because she follows me on Twitter, which to me is AWESOME, but this is truly funny.  That Sadder But Wiser girl had a funny comment on it too… 😉

I also found some new blogs this week, one in particular I really have enjoyed:  Michael Bradley-Time Traveler. He has cool stuff, geeky stuff, funny stuff, etc.  Yeah, I like stuff.  Please check it out if you like that kind of stuff.  I am partial to the Wookie post.

Stay tuned tomorrow-I have exciting news that unfolded this evening.  🙂
