Just another Manic Monday

I’m panting and ready for a nap already and it’s barely 9:00. I hate Mondays. And today got switched up because the kindergarten is going apple picking and instead of making two trips, they take morning and afternoon all at the same time. (Brave, brave teachers.) So the short kid goes from 8:30-11:20 instead of 12:40-3:15. *makes crazy googly eyes*

Saturday we went to Maine and the kids and I visited with my sister and nephews while my husband went to my brother-in-law’s shop to get new tires/wheels/exhaust put on the truck. Chrome wheels, big tires and a bad-ass Flowmaster 3″ dual exhaust. No, my truck does not sound like a girly truck anymore. Better gas mileage, too.

Plus we’ve been playing on eBay. Bought a new toy, selling an old toy. I love eBay. Not for little things—I rarely buy everyday stuff from there, but for the big toys with wheels, it rocks. We bought a camper—no more cranking that pop-up, YAY!—and we’re selling the MGA. Two-seater + 2 sons = You love him more than you love meeeeeeeeeeee *whine*. Yeah, bu-bye car. In the spring it’ll be bu-bye pop-up.

Only a week until Kiss Me Deadly comes out! Have you hugged a werebird today? Or at least drooled on his cover?

I shall try to come up with some less hit-and-run blog post in the very near future. For today…chaos ensues…

    I wonder if we did put our children on ebay if social services would take them from us permenantly…might not be a bad thing. I’m so kidding.

    I want to hug your werebird just via the cover and the excerpt ROCKED. Thank you for teasing me once again. You suck. LOL

    Back to my football playa.

    *sticks fingers in ears*

    I’m not hearing the word “football” today.

    I’m supposed to be selling off all my wordly goods on eBay, in anticipation of my move to a much smaller house with no damned closets. But photographing and measuring and listing is SUCH a pain in the ass!

    Well, my desire to downsize my “stuff” by selling it on eBay lies in direct conflict with my abhorence of the post office.

    So…we rented a giant dumpster and threw it all away. :rofl:
