I Survived Halloween in May

Today felt like this:

My little hot dog was cranky, I had an aggressive dinosaur on my hands, and I felt like a very-busy-hot-dog-dinosaur-holding cow…
Everyone woke up around 5 a.m. so I had to find extra cow patience for them, despite their shrieks and inability to use their ears for LISTENING. .
It was a productive day. I thwarted a roly poly bug smuggling ring in my living room. Roly poly bugs can only be played with OUTside.
A U.S. Census person came to my door during nap time and I learned that on April 1st of this year, Sheldon was 000 years old. Whatever.
I learned how to clean my bathroom with a spray-bottle-obsessed two year old: I put him in the bathtub and scrubbed while he swam around.
I bought meatballs and planned a nice dinner at home. They ended up being BUFFALO and Blue Cheese meatballs. Who. Eats. Those?
I think the only people who buy them are people who have to take a small cranky hot dog and a dinosaur with them when they go to the store: people who don’t have time to read packaging.
Now they are in bed and I’m putting my feet up and “mooing” with happiness!

  1. I'm mooing with you. Today was a crazy, couch jumping, closet door breaking, chicken pooping on the rug kind of day.
    The census people came during Dinner time Monday!


  2. HI-larious! Didn't you girls see the TV commercial “If you don't fill out and mail back your census, a census employee will be sent to your door.” 🙂 Anyway, as much as I miss having littles, I'm glad to be done with the crazy days. But I must say, JoAnn, I am impressed with your smile in the midst of it all. I have to let you know, your posts are so funny that my whole family gathers around the computer to read them. REALLY. I am curious, though: why was Halloween in May?


  3. Jodi, My husband threw it away! It was halloween in may because…that picture was my day? I just name my blog posts kookie things for the fun of it. 🙂 Funny how your family thinks I'm funny…MINE doesn't! 🙂 Maybe I'm overwhelming in large doses..:) tee hee.


  4. p.s. Jodi, I was smiling, but if you look closely (not at the handprints on the window) I have crazy eyes. CRAZY!

    Susan: What the? They came to your house anyway? Maybe they couldn't believe you actually had seven children that you homeschool….

    Lumberjill, I just read about your day, and you win. By a mile and a half. You had me at dog barf.


  5. Haha, I am laughing to myself as my husband thinks I am nuts…I had to fill him in on the “and I felt like a very-busy-hot-dog-dinosaur-holding cow…”


  6. I love the range of emotions in the picture! Hilarious…

    How funny would that have been if the census worker showed up at the door when you were dressed like that!?!
