Just Too Tired

After a scrapbook-a-thon last night that got me into bed at about 1:30 AM and then an early morning appointment for my first ever mammogram, I’ve just got nothing left tonight.

So you’re gettin’ pictures.

And in all seriousness, mammograms are a breeze when you put it into perspective. I highly recommend getting a pelvic exam prior to a mammogram because when you compare the feeling of letting a man you don’t really know see the parts of you that you can’t even see yourself, with going topless in front of a strange woman that has the same equipment you do, well, it’s really a no-brainer. In fact, I felt rather European strolling around shirtless in front of that lady.

So……..pictures!

They say “idle hands are the devil’s workshop” and that is so true in our house. When the kids are bored, they fight and nit pick at each other until I’m ready to scream. So today, I harnessed all that great energy and put them to work.

Allegra got fridge-cleaning duty.


Malachi got to organize the pots and pans cupboard.


And Elijah burned some old records in the fireplace.


And what did I do? I sat on the couch, feet up on the coffee table, sucking a lollipop that I found in the bottom of my purse and reading a scrapbook magazine.

Yes, sometimes my genius amazes even me!
Tomorrow they are learning how to mop!

OK, when you said you had pictures for us and then mentioned your mammogram and vag exam, I got worried.

Much relief to see your photos of slave driving results! :) Brilliant!

So you got the scrapbooking bug, huh? You should post a photo of a page. Unless it has photos of your mammogram.

Gayle!

I think when you mentioned pictures in conjunction with your mammogram appointment, you actually wanted us to be worried! I knew you would NOT let someone take pictures of you during such a compromising position...so I was not worried.

So, now that you're hooked on scrapbooking, does that mean that if I had a scrapbooking party, that you would come?? HMMMM??? Because I AM having one next month, and you WILL be invited! So sorry Emily doesn't live closer!

I have to tell ya'z, your blog is on my top 10 list!

Talk soon......Leanne

Ok guys, sorry about that. I went back through and read my post and it DOES sound like I'm gonna post mammogram pictures.

No-WAY!

So if you are some kinda wierdo looking for naughty pictures, you can just move along. You're in the wrong place.

You're too much! Way to put those kids to work! :) I'll be following your lead tomorrow morning. Bright and early, crack those whips! Who needs a Scooba?

Thanks for your prayers after our accident!

Blessings,

Would you send your kids over to my house? My kitchen is a wreck!

I too was worried about what pics you were posting...

Good job on putting your kids to work!

I smiled when I saw the last job on your list. Burning things! The boys in this house would have fought over that job.

Hmmm lets see -- sort pots, clean fridge, burn something...... no contest.
