(Insert horror movie music here) Anyone that knows me also knows that Wednesdays are almost NEVER good days.  Especially if the following Thursday is NOT a MOPS day.  I’m not really sure how it happens but it seems that it is a guaranteed bad day.  The kids know it and I know it.  If they are going to misbehave they’ll save it up and pour it out on Wednesday, trust me, they wait for this, they’re smart!  Sometimes I’ll forget it’s Wednesday but by the time 10AM rolls around something has happened to remind me.  So now you’re thinking, "Not her kids, they’re so well behaved, look at those sweet faces." I say, "HA, do you know my kids!?!?!"  Who knows maybe today will be different.  That would be great…

So did you miss me yesterday?  Have I gotten you hooked already?  I’m trying.  Are you wondering what Monday ended up like?  Well, I got a call from the ReMax that they had booked a showing for between 5:30 and 6:30, "Is that okay?"  Oh sure, I thought, just don’t mind that it is my family’s dinner hour! (It’s a good thing I was making chili, or I would have really been upset)  Of course the house wasn’t really ready, it was a rainy day and all the kids were stuck inside all day (you’re getting a mental image right?) I finally wrangled them up and headed for the mini-van but it was too late, they were already in the driveway. I excused myself and took the littles for a walk down the street. They were only here for about 10 minutes… we’ll see.  Yesterday our agent called us and asked if we would put the situation to prayer (obviously she doesn’t know us very well) as she had just finished faxing some paperwork over to the dinner-time agent and was looking forward to an offer (We haven’t heard anything yet) and that another agent from the same office had scheduled a showing for Thursday between 6:00 and 7:00.  Okay so are you also wondering if that office ONLY schedules showings during dinner time?!?!?  Guess who’s not cooking on Thursday!  I’m thinking of suggesting Chipotle. I could go for a good burrito.

Oh, did you catch the 7th Heaven finale on Monday?  So sad to see the show go. I thought they crammed a bit too much into one hour, they should have had a longer finale, oh well.  Nice how they brought everything back together and gave us all a bit of closure, very kind of them.  Maybe they’ll do a reunion show some time, I’d watch it.

I went to Recollections yesterday on my search for ideas for Mother’s Day.  Such fun.  It’s been a while since I’ve shopped there now that I am my own scrap and stamp store (You’re supposed to laugh at that Vince).  I got a few good ideas, now we’ll see if I can get them done and out on time (pipe dreams).  I also picked up a book for myself "The Big Picture" by Stacy Julian. All I can say is WOW! I couldn’t put it down.  It’s a very neat look at scrapbooking and totally liberates you from the idea that in order to be a "scrapbooker" you have to have volume upon volume of chronological albums and every photo you touch much see the inside of a scrapbook.  I’ve been feeling that for a while, guess I just needed to hear someone else say it.  Of course this means I’ll be hounding all you self-proclaimed non-scrappers a little bit more.  You can DO it (think Waterboy)!

To celebrate my find at the scrapbook store I had to bring a little something home for my hubby… His treat.  Yup, I think he liked it.  It was no Harry’s (too cool for a website, I checked) but it was pretty good.  Even the boys couldn’t help finishing their dinner, but maybe that was because they didn’t have lunch (yup I starve ’em when I want them to actually EAT dinner, at least that’s what Evan will tell you) or that we bribed them with ice cream for dessert.  Both methods teamed together work really well!

So, now you’re updated and we’re back to Wednesday… Vince just headed out to NJ for work (today’s gonna be a long day) the boys are munching on their knock-off Lucky Charms and the princess is still asleep (on my bed of course), maybe today will be okay…
