I Post; Therefore, I Am.

I will now rationalize how living a few days without motivation to do anything productive with my earthly probation is probably okay:
1) Not changing into real clothes -- especially an underwire -- can sometimes be therapuetic and therefore is not a sin. Right?! Right?! I think so.
2) Not cleaning the bedrooms is okay because flibberdy diggit, I just don't want to!
3) If sitting on the couch watching Oprah and N.C.I.S. reruns makes me a little softer, so be it! I will hold my head up when the Double B comes home from work, because dangit -- flab is not a sin!

Oh, guess what. I just saw my neighbor walk into her backyard and put her children on the trampoline IN HER PAJAMAS!!! muh-ha-ha!!! Female justification is at hand!!! Just kidding. All this really means is that the poor woman did not realize I am sitting at my computer with the blinds open and could see her. I caught her unawares. And she's picking up trash, so I'm seeing a nice rear view. Ah. I'm glad for neighbors for that reason alone -- it makes us feel like part of a community, shall we say.

The song playing is "If Only," by Goldfinger and probably the song I listened to the very most between 15-17. I simply adored it, bet you didn't know that.

I will now share a charming story: Tuesday was K.J.'s preschool report. He chose to do it on dinosaurs, so we made a poster of his various illustrations (he's really quite a talented artist, his mother modestly admits) and prepared a few comments, including informative tidbits. He brought one of his dinosaur books and two favorite dino's, and a little wooden triceratops for each classmember which I found at Roberts for a mere .50 cents a piece. He was VERY excited and did such an adorable job, I was really proud of him. At one point a wee little classmate asked him how they know about dinosaurs and he said "the museums, and the ... museum-ers." (meaning paleontologists). We recorded it, so one day when I get REALLY hightech I may put a little clip on. That's one day.

For the last half hour Olivia has been running around the house screaming "hot dog! hot dog!" It took me a long time to figure out what she was saying, and a long time to comfort her when I told her that we are currently out of hot dogs. Sigh. It's cruel to withhold a cheese frank from a deserving little girl. I'll have to see what I can do about that.

Well, with that exercise in typing, I bid you adieu. Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say adieu 'till it be morrow. (Or whatever it is Juliet says). Cheddar-filled sausages for you all!

You are sooooo funny. It makes my heart ache to see you and be in your physical presence. I hope we don't have to wait until the Burdette reunion. You are so great and it's so great to hear that other people don't get dressed and are sad when the hot dogs run out! Love ya!

reeser you are too funny. braden was sitting on my lap while i was reading your post (i was trying to talk him into a few nachos but he wouldn't go for it so i ate the entire plate myself :)) and i kept laughing and so he would start laughing. then he got off my lap and was playing with toys and i was still laughing and then he would start laughing. i think he may have thought he was being funny but i'm not really sure. thank you for the lovely post. k.j.'s dinasour presentation sounds amazing and i must urge you to post the video. it's really quite easy--although it took me a while to figure out. and by the way i love pajama days. so you rock and i'm glad to know that flab is no sin! p.s. your valentine layout looks cute!

I love your posts. They always make my day. I'm a big fan of pjs as well so I don't see a problem with staying in them all day. It's fun to hear about your kids and get to know them a little. Vidoe's really aren't too hard to post and it would be fun to see the dino presentation.

I am still laughing about your unsuspecting neighbor!! Chester has a book report today on Alber Einstein. I actually had fun working with him on it last night. He was practicing the oral part of the assignment and he could not say 'World War II'. We were laughing so hard...all those "w"'s and "r"'s! :)
