Things I Should Be Doing:

  1. Going to the hardware store for drywall mud and another paint roller
  2. Mudding nail holes and painting my bedroom
  3. Mopping my kitchen floor
  4. Cleaning all three bathrooms from top to bottom (though I did hit two toilets and the tub and shower in my bathroom last night)
  5. Getting the spot out of the white living room carpet where one of the cats yakked up a hairball
  6. Organizing our school space in the basement and getting it set up so we can start school on Monday
  7. Cleaning all of the miscellaneous crap that we don’t know what to do with since we moved off of the pool table
  8. Cleaning up my kitchen desk area
  9. Grocery shopping
  10. Laundry — I need my “La Push Cliff Diving Team” t-shirt to be clean for book club tonight

What I am doing:

  1. Avoidance blogging

To be fair, I did wake up with a bit of a headache this morning (am I the only person in the world who wakes up with a cookie hangover?), so I’m having to kind of ease into the day.

But anyway . . . here is what I really want to say:  Thank you!

I know I’ve said it before, but I probably don’t say it enough:  you bloggy folks rock!  Thank you! 

Your comments on my dog post were so sweet and unexpected.  I don’t know why they were unexpected.  I should, of course, know better by now. 

And there was Ren’s comment!  My word, she is over in Vietnam without her husband, caring for their brand new son, facing some unique challenges, and she took the time to give me free, unsolicited professional advice!  By all rights she should just be in a puddle of goo on the floor, and she is instead helping me with my dog problems.

See?  You guys rock.  Really

This whole blogging thing . . . what can I say?  Not only have you all helped me through the stresses of an adoption and parenting and a million other little things along the way, you have helped me move.  Did you know that?  You helped me handled this move much better than I would have otherwise, because you all are a portable community.  I had to leave my real life community behind, but you all “came with”.


Now, hopefully sometime this week I will have the time to tell you properly about the scary critter in the middle of the night.  Quality control has been on strike or something for a long time around here.  I owe you a good story.

And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt says hello.

    Awww, you’re so sweet! Thinking about other peoples’ issues takes my mind off the craziness that is my life right now :). And I feel the same way about the blogworld – the comments left recently on my blog have really helped get me through the last week.


  2. Ugh! Thanks for the reminder. One of our kitties yacked under the guest bedroom bed. Thanks for making so easy, Sabine! I know it was you! Sorry. Lost it for a minute. Must tell hubby to clean it up. Yeah, I’m the boss of him.


  3. Oh my, your list wears me out! Fine, doesn’t take much these days, but still. And don’t get me started on pet stains on anything and everything in your house, stupid-fat-cat-of-mine.

    I’ve been feeling the same way about the bloggy-world lately and hope to get something up on mine later this week though you’ve said it better than I could. Please keep us updated on the dog, I really will be hoping that things are not as bad as you think they may be.

    I just can’t wait to hear how the BBQ goes this weekend – I suspect you’ll be full of blog fodder for eons to come!


  4. phew- you and Nicki and your energy… where do you get it?
    just readin your list and Nicki’s homeschool day wore me out.
    In fact I am going to bed right now. 9:04 pm.
    Loser. me.
