Sunday sundries

If you’ve been living under a rock, or following the Mayan calendar instead of the regular calendar, it’s November. And this year, because I’m INSANE, I’ve decided to ATTEMPT NaBloPoMo.

Like I said.

I’m insane.

But you know? I feel like I’ve been off my blogging game since Emma was two pink lines on a pee stick, so maybe this will help me get my groove back.

What it means is that I’ve got to 1) come up with stuff to tell y’all every day, and 2) come up with time to tell it.

Easier said than done when my kids wake up at the crack of dawn and then don’t sleep all day, but what the hell. I’ll give it the old college try. Whatever that is.

Tonight? I have 7 minutes until the second-most insane night of television I have all week starts and so I’m going to tell you seven random things about me.

Ready, go.

1. My favorite grocery store is Publix. It’s like they have “Are you nice?” on their applications and if you check “yes,” you’re hired. And then you’re actually nice. Plus? I’ve never had a bad dessert from their bakery. Ever. Like, this ganache and the chocolate covered cheesecake I’m eating? DIVINE.

2. My life is overrun with laundry right now. I can get things washed, dried, and out of the laundry room. I cannot get the laundry folded. Almost ever. THIS IS MY GOAL FOR THE WEEK.

3. Joshua’s developed the annoyingly cute habit of deflecting any and all serious conversations about his behavior by saying “I needa touch your nose!” And then he touches my nose and says “boop!” Just like I’m some kind of Jim Henson muppet. And then I can’t remember what I was trying to correct him for.

4. I watched an episode of Pete and Pete once where the brothers proclaimed their love of Daylight Savings Time because you got to “go back in time” and relive an hour of your life. That episode sort of romanticized DST for me and I was all “Ohhh, this is awesome…I will make sure this extra hour COUNTS!” Usually by gaining an extra hour before Last Call. And now? Let’s just say it is not my favorite thing.

And now it’s 9:01 and Dexter is starting and it’s actually 10:01 and I can barely keep my eyes open. So you’re only getting 4 random facts instead of 7. Sorry. I did my best.

In the spirit of NaBloPoMo and giving you things you actually want to read and not just drivel such as this, what do YOU want to know this month?

I'm not even attempting NaBloPoMo. You are a brave, brave woman. You can do it! Even if the last few posts are just pictures of your kids.

Your number 3? My kid does something similar. His default answer to every question (or instruction) that he doesn't like is "PIE!"

Me: Jack, stop touching your sister! Jack: PIE.

Me: Get in the car! Jack: PIE.

LOL! Anyway, good luck with NaBloPoMo! :)

I would LOVE LOVE to see how you make it work day to day (like a schedule of sorts) because we are trying for a second and it scares the poop out of me. Also, you probably don't want to talk about money in particular, but how do you make it work being a stay at home mom because holy moly this one income thing sucks and I always like to hear how other people make ends meet!

Um, the nose thing? I sort of die over how cute that sounds.

I'm participating this month too. I have two websites (including BlogHer) that have prompts but I'm really trying to roam around Tumblr because it's filled with amazing quotes and pictures that can inspire anyone. I'm sure of it.
