C'mon Brain, Let's Think up Something Clever to Say...

It's not working. Between PMS and post-flu flakiness and stress overload (we just moved my mom AGAIN) my brain isn't even making those mental blog posts that it usually is; no humorous anecdotes, no clever observations, no deep reflections, no fantasies about space aliens. It's been a very barren brain week!

Besides that, I am not really here today, instead I am in Hawaii taking over guest posting on Kailani's Blog. Come on over and join the luau!

But since you did come over here, I'll give you a boring ole bullet post just so's you know what's up and what's down on Groovy's Funny Farm.

- We're in the middle of an icky end-of-winter-beginning-of-spring snow/sleet/ice/rain storm.

-HEY.....That means that today is SPRING. It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring! It's Spring!

-I've gotta buzz out in the snow/sleet/ice/rain storm to take GrammaJ to physical therapy and to go over and clean her old apartment of inhospitability and gloom. Then we can turn in the keys and be done with it. Yessssssss!

- I started using my Diva Cup this week. I'm having some difficulties, but feel sure that I'll master the proper use of it. I found it rather humorous that the cup comes with a pretty little lapel pin with a flower and the word DIVA on it.

After all, nothing says, "Hi, I'm on my period" like a lapel pin.

- Homeschool just isn't going well this year. Between moving my darling mother twice and a month of fluishness, we ain't gettin' much done! Fortunately, the girls are young - Silly-Head isn't even mandatory school age yet. But somehow I need to make sure that Girly-Girl gets in 175 "official" days. We're up to 95 days now...

- Man, I love Tim Horton's coffee. Yes I do!

- I currently feel like a semi has run over my head.

- The other night I got up to assist a coughing child. I didn't want to disturb Mulletman's repose with my stumbling about, so I shut our bedroom door. I tottered into the kitchen and got said child cough syrup, gave her some snuggles then headed back to my own bed.

Except I forgot the door was closed.

WHAM! I stubbed my toe and screamed. Mulletman shot out of bed to rescue me. Good thing I was trying not to disturb him!

In the morning I found that I had REALLY stubbed it. My sock was all bloody and my toenail was split down the middle.

Eeeew!

- My mom and my husband are both eccentric. (That sounds much nicer than asserting that she's neurotic and he's psychotic!)

- I miss my big kids. Sigh.

- I'll be featured as a guest poster on Marianne's blog on March 26.

- I'll be interviewing an artist friend of mine in April and having a fun related giveaway.

- I am out of things to say.

I want a Diva Cup.

I am going to Kailani's shortly to read all about you.

I hate this rain/sleet/snow garbage... but I'll take the first day of spring.

We're going to be homeschooling until August at this rate, so I completely understand!

Sprayed. Coffee. Everywhere.

Hee Hee! Right after you tell us how you walked into the door after intentionally making sure you closed it, you tell us that your husband is eccentric. Well, I guess there's a difference between eccentric and forgetful! Sorry, I know it's cruel to torment the sick. Hey cheer up! Here in SC, we have to do 180 days! Does that help?

What? Not ready to throw yourself into the "unschooling" camp yet, and declare every day an educational experience?

I've got an idea for a unit study. It's called: Trusting in the goodness of our great God, and Savior, Jesus Christ as we live for Him in a fallen world. How about it? I don't think it will take too much prep time. It's kinda like a "plug and play" thing. It's ready to go whenever you are! I'm praying for you, and I love you!

I hope you all feel better soon.

I hope you're feeling better and that you had a great Easter!

I, personally, believe that we Divas should wear our pins with pride. And perhaps come up with some sort of secret hand gesture to flash at each other. Perhaps a "pinching desperately" motion. (The DC and I didn't like each other so much with this last cycle.)

Damselfly said...

A lapel pin that says diva?! Hysterical! Everyone knows real divas wear T-shirts that say diva, not lapel pins....

I feel so bad about your toe!

Corn Dog said...

oooooH, I SO want that lapel pin! The only good part about chemo is it kills your period. YAH! No need for Diva. I want to write Playtex Tampons and tell them in the game of 'Rock, Paper, Scissors" chemo beats the fool out of your tampons. ha ha ha ha.. Then I kind of think..am I laughing because I had cancer? I am sick-o.

Ok...off to another blog to depress someone else. That's my job. I get paid a lot to do it.

Dawna said...

I didn't know you were a Diva girl too :). I love the freedom the DC gives me. The first month I used it my period only lasted 7 days rather than the "normal" 14 day cycle I used to have. I felt like running through a field a singing an "ode to the Diva cup" (picture the Sound of Music here).

Anyway, maybe we could work on a secret handshake thing... wouldn't that make people curious on Sunday mornings. ha ha ha.

Love ya!

PS: Your blog inspires me... I need to learn how to make mine cooler, I am sure writing in it once in a while would help. :0)
