A Letter from the President

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has been stopping by and leaving me such wonderful comments.  The stories you read here are true, only the names have been changed to protect the guilty.  I have been married to the same man for the past 20 years although he has tried to break free a couple of times.  We have 3 boys and 2 girls (the 'other brother' doesn't count), and they are a constant source of joy and frustration not to mention the main characters for most of my stories here.

One of the comments stated that I was a mess.  Well, yes, I am!   I truely do hate cleaning the house, and I would really rather just go out and buy new socks than to wash and sort dirty ones.  My gardening skills are limited to sprouting eyes on potatoes and mold on left-overs.  Plants cry when I approach.  I swear my grass moved over to the neighbor's yard because one day it was there, all nice and green, and the next day, POOF, it was gone!  I have some kind of weed growing now, its kind of like a vine or something that is slowly taking over the front yard.  I'm actually starting to like it, I mean, its almost the same color of grass and it hides the dirt.

I've noticed that I have 2 kinds of reactions to my journal so far.  There are those who read my stories and laugh out loud (or giggle quietly if its late at night like it is for me now), and then there are those who read it and think  "So whats so funny about that, I do it all the time?".  Either way I really appreciate the comments.  Thank you!

I would rather eat dust bunnies than to clean them.

I admit I'm a giggler.  Your stories are oh so funny, and soooooooooooo true.  I don't think there is a mother alive that can't identify with you on some level.  I think what I appreciate about your journal is your honesty mixed with humor.  Life is about so much more than what we make it sometimes.  I think you've found a joy that a lot of us are working to obtain.  So I say cheers to you and your dust bunnies. :)  I do have a funny story for you. Last winter I had my carpets cleaned.  They did a nice job.  But they told me about a woman that called to have her capets cleaned.  When they arrived at the house they started to move the furniture around and realized she had about 3 feet of trash stuffed behind things.  What did they do?  They simply pushed the couch back into place and said, "You've called the wrong company.  We aren't Merry Maids."  and left!  I thought, "Oh boy, if you only knew the junk I pulled from behind things before you came."  I think they'd have died.  lol  *hugs* Thank you for the giggles.  I truly hope you have a wonderful day!

I love reading your journal!!!  It's nice to read something different. Everything isn't always neat and perfect and I love the way you take that and make it funny. To me when it comes to cleaning I hate it too but when I do, I'm very anal about it

I usually hiding the dust bunnies under the couch, the throw rugs & any other random place that will accomodate the additional roomies.  -=)

I feel your time is well spent loving and enjoying family. Lets face it when we are about to meet our Maker no one ever says, I wish I could have spent more time cleaning and doing laundry. Thank you for sharing this portion of your life with myself and others it gave me a giggle. Best wishes to you and yours.
