gimme five minutes... my kingdom for FIVE minutes!

i SWEAR! i PROMISE i am going to post to this blog regularly again...

honestly, i have draft posts up the wazoo right now. but the paloma is on spring break and has giddily woken up every morning to put on her cowhide chaps and ride me like a rodeo clown on mechanical bull. i sh*t you not.

last week and last weekend were pretty busy too.... we've had some exterior and interior work done on the house. we had the yew bushes in the front and side yards extracted. the yards look pretty bare, but better bare than claustrophobic.

then, we finally had an electrician friend/neighbor come by and install our dining room chandelier and sconces. *sigh* it's really quite pretty.

lastly, the painters came by and painted our dining and living rooms. hey kids, can you say "contact high"? photos to come...

saturday, i stepped into a chuck e. cheese for the first time in decades. why can't ADULTS have birthday parties there? i would SERIOUSLY kick your *SS at skee-ball. oh yes, i would. you will kowtow to my skee-ball greatness.

and sunday, after easter lunch? dinner? lunner? dinch? i don't know what we ate really.... i saved the paloma from a harrowing experience with her cousin. they were playing QUIETLY downstairs in my sister's basement. so i knew something was wrong. when i got down there i found that he had tied her up with headphone wire to a table leg. and proceeded to draw on her with sidewalk chalk. don't ask. i'm still trying to process it myself. thankfully, no nightmares so i don't think she's scarred for life.

and yesterday, like a good responsible mamazilla, i checked out. and did nothing. oh, except for writing another post that is still in draft form....

anyhoo - today, the paloma and i have an aquarium playdate set up. the porkchop will be with a sitter today. (already i know my mind will not be at peace. not because i don't trust the sitter. i don't trust the porkchop. that poor, poor defenseless woman....)

Hey Mamazilla, I know how you feel, we just got back from our vacation and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. I'm slowly getting back to the blogworld, reading posts and commenting. I haven't had time to post on my own blog yet, maybe tonight...

I think all the Moms in the world should get an extra 2 hours a day to catch up all their own personal stuff and have "me" time, yes, I know in a perfect world, this would happen, but hey, a girl can dream, right?

You have a kingdom? I have nothing to give, but I would LOVE 5 minutes! I would give all my shoes for 5 minutes.

angela - yay! you're back. i was worried that you'd never come back from vacation! :) i used to love my google reader - now, i'm afraid to look at it. sometimes, i feel like i used to feel when i'd come back to work after a few days off to a gazillion emails...

irene - but of COURSE i have a kingdom! there's a house and a firestation and a car wash and an ice cream store and an ark and a woodland fort.... it's made of heavy duty, brightly colored plastic and lots of cool little people come with it... ;)

whoa. i couldn't part with my shoes. the shoes are a deal breaker. ;)

Must be remodeling season. I find it really disruptive to have people working on the house, so I empathize.

I know what you mean about Spring break. No break for us, eh? And yes, it's always bad news when they're too quiet.
