Don't Concern Yourself With This Mess You've Left For Me; I Can Clean it Up, You See

It feels so good to be productive. To be able to sit at the table. To load the dishwasher. To make breakfast and lunch all by myself.

To have my pooping resume its regular schedule.

(It's true! It's wonderful!)

I received my magazine swap quite awhile ago, but didn't have the opportunity to post it.


The wonderful Samantha sent me so many magazine goodies from Australia. I've read them over and over, and I'm quite certain I'll read them many more times again.

Yesterday I also received two (two!) boxes in the mail.

The first is from Lori...


We are all specifically lovin' the pillow. As Aaron pointed out, it is so very true -- but it is missing one more word. Lori -- the boys love the book and I cannot wait to start on the bookmark! Thank you!

The second box was from Diana...


Obviously, the boys could not wait to get the water space guns. Everything was from the flea market in Maine. How come flea markets in the ocean-bordering states are so much cooler than the ones in the Midwest? I love the fabrics, and they are an awesome weight, and the juice glasses and caddy are perfect. And in the lower right corner is an apron -- my first apron ever -- and it fits! And it matches my boot!

The pain in my broken foot has increased, but with the new pill regimen and the joy of being up and doing stuff is making it bearable (for the most part).

And because I'm loving today's song and don't want to make you all wait until next month to hear it -- go listen to The Wrecker's single "Leave the Pieces."

I'm sure it does feel good to get things done and having other things moving, if you know what I mean.

How fun to have thoughtful friends to take care of your mailing needs when you're down. I'm glad you got some nice stuff.

I've got that song memorized *grin* It was my theme song for a few weeks :-) Hope the foot feels better soon!

Laughed at the typed "southpark style kid-whine" re: your foot. That's what I say to my DH when I'm in a "pay attention to me mode". Sorry to hear though...can't be fun at all. Bummer.
Also loved the magazine swap - FABOO idea - where does one find one of those?
