Twisting of ARMS and LEGS

Well, I have been getting all kinds of FLACK for having a busy life, I guess. I haven't posted anything for about a week or more and I get calls and posts about me HIDING!!!
Believe me at times I would have rather been hiding but no such LUCK... It is called BOYS and Baseball. They have both only had one game and that was on Monday night and I am already ready for this season to be over. I guess I just wasn't ready for something to rule my life...as if I have time for something else anyways. Anyways I guess I should get everyone caught up since it seems that I have some people concerned. Lets start with this past weekend. Well, I have told you about my laundry problem and how it is much WORSE than any of yours. On Sunday after church Bubba decides it would be a NOVEL idea that we get all of the clothes out of the whole house that are dirty(which is 95% of everything we own) and bring them to to living room and sort them and then wash them. Well come to find out we had a lot more than we even thought possible. So being the semi-smart person that I am I decide there is "NO WAY IN H$##" That I am going to do all that LAUNDRY because by the time I am finished it will all be dirty again, hince the vicious cycle. So I load it up and take it to the Laundry Mat.
I think I did about 30 loads of laundry and I got it all done in one day!!! So that was an accomplishment. But it was Bitter Sweet because on my last trip to go dry the final loads I got a speeding ticket on the way there.
THAT WAS A LOW BLOW!! Now comes Monday, I get up to go to work like always, but guess what is different about this morning, I have clothes to wear!!!! Go to work, then come home and realize, OH CRAP, Blake and Carter both have games tonight and Carter needs a helmet and Blake needs socks, belt, and white pants. So off we go to the store..Walmart had the socks and the helmet but not the pants or belt so now we have to make the trip to Tyler. On a normal day the 15 to 20 minute drive is No Problem but today time is of the essence and I hate to be rushed. So we get home with all of our LOOT and get changed for baseball speedy fast and jump right back in the car and go to baseball for 2 hours. We get back home and take baths and go to bed and ofcourse they are hungry again but TO BAD tonight! I already fed them supper and they both had a snack after thier games and that was just the best I could do for them. Tuesday, Blake stayed home for school for the first time this year I think because his ears hurt and his right ear was draining. But he felt ok that afternoon and he had a musical performance at his school at 7:00 and didn't want to miss it so we packed up and went. He did great and I am glad he went. Wednesday, Blake goes back to school but his ears still hurt, so after school we went to the doctor, and he has Swimmers Ear is both ears. We went straight from the doctors office to the park for our play date that we have every Wednesday with some friends. We left there at 5:00 to come home and eat supper SUPER FAST because YOU GUESSED IT, Baseball Practice....Tonight is Thursday and Blake has a game at 8:00, which I am really hoping gets rained out.. Then tomorrow Grammy(Kathy) is coming to take them away for the weekend...Can You Say HALLELUJAH!!!!


I hope this satisfies my POSSE!!!!

I am very satisfied with your posting! It was hilarious and I want to know how many washers you were using at once? Ben says,"What a potty mouth!"
Hope to see ya soon! Tell Blake to get feeling better!

I used about 15 at a time!!! That is all of one side and about half of the other side. They are small washers though.

I think next time the owners of the laundry mat will just ask Windy to pay a flat rate to use the whole place...you know, rent it out for a couple of hours or so. It is nice to see your sense of humor is still intact, even though I think you deserve a nice quiet weekend....doing something just for you, like blogging... here is my new line...
"Hello, my name is Patti and I'm a blogaholic!" Can you say Blogaholic?

Patti said...

And she gets her potty mouth from her daddy!!!

Wonderful Windy said...

Isn't my mom the one that thought it was necessary to make sure all of us knew what SOS really meant..I think that is all the evidence you need to determine where the pottiness came from.

Michael said...

So true, Windy. My mom never told me what it really meant, she said the oldest kids had to set an example....apparently, she didn't set a very good one for her little sister.

Me, on the other hand, I've always set a good example for my siblings. ;)

I am extremely impressed with your creativity and awesome work in such a short period of time...which was probably more like all day....Did I hear you say,
"NO BOYS FOR THE WEEKEND?" You can blog like crazy for at least 2 days.
