Strawberries and Snowbanks
I suppose I should admit that I didn't quite accomplish goal #1 yesterday.
I seem to be falling under the "needs an excessive amount of sleep" category these days.
In fact, I just woke up from a little siesta on the couch that occurred when I tried to stay up long enough to watch the 2 hour season finale of "Major Crimes" that I had taped.
(Considering it is now 1am...I'm kind of guessing that I might not achieve the whole "get out of bed before 10" thing again today either.)
Fortunately...the fact that I'm a lazy bum in the mornings did not hinder my ability to be productive on my one day of freedom this week.
Oh yes....I was a little worried that my Monday would be yet another day in the long list of "where did my day go?" wasted day pile...but instead, I gave myself a little pep talk, and got to work.
I decided that I was going to tackle the rest of that darn laundry/craft room disaster.
And oh, what a disaster it was.
After seven hours of sorting and organizing and throwing and cleaning and moving and wanting to throw myself in a snowbank....I am almost done.
(Pictures to follow.)
But....it will all be worth it when it's finished, AND...this happened!
(Mint oreos, dipped in chocolate.)
This is what happens when I send my daughter to get groceries, and say "if there is anything delicious you think we just have to have...pick that up too."
But...what made life worth living (and what I could honestly live on, happily, forever:) is this!
I have eaten WAY too many of these....and I am soooo okay with that.
The girl might not win any awards in the "good at cleaning up after herself" dept....but when it comes to making crepes or covering things in chocolate, she gets an A+.
I will say, Lexie has gotten a little too big for her britches, and has left a sign in the fridge that says we are supposed to "ask her before eating any strawberries."
Yeah. Ok....I'll get right on that.
And...for further entertainment, my dog has been reverting back to puppy behavior.
When he was little, he used to love to dig holes in the dirt during the summer, and run around like a maniac in the snow every winter.
Now, he is almost 9, and fat and lazy.
(Gee....must take after his mother!)
However, in the past week or so, he has started to go outside, stick his face in the snow, and dig and act like a total goof ball.
Then, he comes back in, and looks at us (with his snow covered face) like
"What? What are you looking at? I wasn't doing anything..."
We always give the dogs a tiny little treat after they go outside and do their business. Of course, Cooper (who is ALL about eating, now that he weighs about 15lbs more than he should) will also bark to go out, stick his face in the snow, turn around, come back in, and sit and wait for a treat.
I have to tell ya...it's hard to say no to that face.
I hope your Tuesday is terrific.
I am going to get some sleep...so I can take on Tuesday, and hopefully get started sooner rather than later.
Baby steps....but maybe today, I will try some medium sized steps.
