Can Somebody Please Tell Me…

I’ve been really busy lately. Busy doing what? I dunno. I have managed to avoid playing Bejeweled for the past 4 days. Well, 2 days, really. Then I fell off the wagon yesterday. But I haven’t played at all today. So that makes 3 days in all.

In any case, I wasn’t spending ALL my time playing Bejeweled. But I wasn’t preparing for the holidays either. I have about a dozen to 15 people to buy gifts for and I have exactly 1 gift.

Was I busy shopping for the perfect gift for Jake’s 18th birthday or preparing for a huge birthday bash? Nope. I took the advice of my highly intelligent readers and spent 30 seconds writing out a check to the boy. No birthday bash; as per Jake’s wishes, we went out for supper and then came home for cake. A cake, I might add, that I BOUGHT and didn’t make myself.

So yeah, what the hell have I been doing with myself? Can somebody please tell me? Anybody? Because I really need to know what has kept me so busy that it’s taken me 4 days to answer 3 emails. So busy that I haven’t written a post in 4 days.

So busy that I kept forgetting to make this child an appointment for a haircut.

boy with long hair, hair in face, brown hair

Seriously. Nobody is THAT busy. Somebody smack me.

Sigh. Think he’ll get shoved into a locker much if I just stick a bowl on his head and start cutting?

  • Ha. I know the feeling. I’ve been running circles and accomplishing NOTHING.

  • I’m with you.  All I do is stay busy but I can’t tell you what I’m busy doing. 

  • If I were God…

    You’re hardly the worst mother ever, or even just this week.
    Those bitches get put on the news, and then in jail.

  • We all have days and/or weeks like that.  Lists are good to keep track of you need to do and have done. 

  • I haven’t jumped on the bejeweled wagon yet, I’ve been hanging on tight to stupid ninjas and stupid zombies, I spent the whole day after thanksgiving killing zombies, the whole day. So I wish I could help you figure out where your time went, um how old is that boy that needs a haircut, can’t he make his own appointment, that will free you up about 5 minutes.

  • Nicky, take that pretty boy in and get his hair cut.  And then go scrub the kitchen floor.  Oh, and you need to put up the tree and decorate for Christmas. And wait, why not just make the 14 Christmas gifts you are lacking.  You can give everyone locks of your son’s hair enclosed in a fetish bag.  People will be astounded at your ingenuity.  I’m going to start playing bejeweled.  It sounds much more fun that the things I’ve told you to do.

  • You, my dear, have a completely justifiable reason for running around in circles these days… a reason I wish you didn’t have! I, on the other hand, have no reason at all!!

  • You know, I thought about cloning myself but then I realized that would just mean there would be two of me getting nothing done.

  • I don’t know.  I think he looks kinda cute.   And make that gift giving easy on yourself.  Buy 15 of my books.  😉    

    “Well, Jayne.  That was certainly self-serving, tacky and rude.”

  • Thank you for that Divine endorsement, God! I’ll remember you when it is time for my one phone call 🙂

  • Lol!

  • I started a list, but it got really long really fast and then I got discouraged! 🙂

  • Trust me Madge, stick to the ninjas and zombies! You’re really not missing anything in Bejeweled.

    The boy is 14 and hahahahahahahahaha, make his own appointment! LOL good one, Madge!! Oh, wait. You were serious?

    *stares at the computer confused by the concept of any of her children doing anything at all for themselves.*

  • Ugh, those things are exactly what I do need to do. Well, except for the fetish bags.

    Can I just hide over at your house instead? I’ll teach you how to play Bejeweled! 🙂

  • Come on down, Nicky!  Leave the rest to Jepeto and all them kids.  We’ll have such fun!

  • I thought that somewhere in the world a deer was caught in the headlights, little did I know it was you! Give him 10 to walk down to the barber shop, there has to be one near you somewhere.

  • xoxoxoxo

  • Ha ha!  I took my 18 yo for a haircut this week… that poor boy didn’t have long pretty hair like yours.. mine’s was just LARGE, like a big fat HELMET LOLOL!

    Maybe you’ve been daydreaming. Nothing wrong with that.

  • Self-serving, tacky and rude are why I love you 🙂

  • Oh oh! Now you went and did it, Katherine! He was all ready to forgive me for forgetting to make his appointment when you went and called his hair “pretty”!! 🙂

  • You caught me. I’ve been daydreaming about a Spanish cat, dressed as Zorro, coming to rescue me from the drudgery that is my life. 🙂

  • It does set me apart, doesn’t it.  🙂

    Some day, perhaps when you least expect it, the Diablo Gato — the Furry Lover, Chupa Cabra, Frisky Two Times, the Gingerbread Man — the one most people know as Puss in Boots — will arrive to set you free. Until then, hold fast to your dreams. And that bottle of whiskey.
