Are you ever too busy to think straight?
Well… sucks for you-because
my life is tranquil and productive,
…said NO horse-owning-mom-who-works-from-home, ever in the history of the universe!!!
(unless you count the Queen of England. I assume by now she’s got most days down to an exact science. And if there are a few blips, well…they can’t take her crown away. I should think diamonds & rubies help when dealing with blips )
I digress (and defeat the whole purpose of this new feature with its increasing word count!)
Silly Sweet” will contain:
the whole purpose of the posts will simply be,
to amuse in general, the busy, tired, faithful horse-loving people among us in bite-sized portions, because…
we are not those freaks-of-nature-people, the
“duck-whispering-never-experienced-a-Pinterest-fail-horse-is-never-dirty-and-dinner’s-never-late-maintains-patience-even-when-kids-are-fighting-like-alley-cats,” kind of people.
(omg, I’m totally jealous of those kinds of people!)
Oh, no…we are:
(cue emotional orchestral music)
“never-remember-where-the-charger-is-horse-occasionally-resembles-a-woolly-mammoth-kids-rarely-get-to-bed-on-time-math-homework-makes-us-doubt-our-sanity-experienced-in-many-forms-of-Pinterest-fails” kind of people. *sigh…
And ya know, I’d be lying if I said I wish I wasn’t so good at forgetting things, or losing my temper when the children are behaving like disposed royals, forced to- gasp!- do chores.
I do wish I had a knack for duck-whispering-
aka getting all my crap together.
It’s so easy to go to bed feeling bad about my role in the day’s failings,
but when that happens, I try to make myself feel better by remembering that those perfect ducks also make mud, & seriously, their poop is literally gag-worthy, so…it’s fine to stick with chickens.
Those guys,er…girls- are certainly a messy, chaotic bunch of willy-nilly’s, but their eggs make it possible for me to make cake, and, HELLO?!!
If any of that makes a lick of sense to you, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the posts coming up on
ps, a great big THANK YOU to those of you who responded to my pitiful email last week, looking for some help establishing my subscriber lists! You guys are fabulous- you should totally go make yourself a big ole cake!
