Just think, if it wasn’t a Leap Year, today would be the last day of February instead of tomorrow. Those born on February 29th are lucky, because you only get older every four years instead of annually. Something to ponder. What, it doesn’t work like that? Darn.
Saturday morning I woke up and while I was getting my first cup of coffee, thought up an awesome anecdote that would have been entertaining to you all. Except that once I had my coffee in hand, I was distracted by the usual flurry of activity clothing and feeding the rug-rats before finally sitting down for that first cup of coffee (good thing my coffee cup keeps my coffee hot for 4 hours, or pouring that first cup would have been a disappointing moot point).
At any rate, when I finally sat down, I couldn’t for the life of me remember that anecdote. At all.
Too bad there’s no antidote for a forgotten anecdote.
In other news… Little Dude is a major challenge when it comes to nap-time. Some days he does great and falls asleep within a half hour of getting tucked in, but other days he decides he’d much prefer to play in his bed – with his feet, his hands, his hair, his blanket, his pillow, his socks… doing anything and everything to keep himself awake rather than fall asleep.
On those days (which are more often than not) he’ll finally fall asleep around the time he’d be getting up. Then there are days, like Sunday, where he falls asleep like a champ – only to be rudely awakened by the devil tween next door and his obnoxiously loud dirt bike he insists on riding up and down their driveway – which reverberates even louder through the windows on that side of the house, including Little Dude’s bedroom windows.
It didn’t appear there were any adults at home, which is usually when he chooses to be an ass and do just that. For three hours. Moron. I can’t wait until we move. Can’t be soon enough for me.
Now for some real fun… The lovely ladies, Shawn and Impulsive, (who host Talk To Us Tuesday) decided to host a Seriously Impulsive Swap. When I received the particulars about my swap partner, Liberty of Liberty Original, I was excited – it appeared from her likes and dislikes that we were pretty much twins separated at birth. I had fun shopping for some unique gifts for her, and when I received the box of awesomeness from her, I was thrilled beyond words:
the cool notepads and personalized initial paper clips (and sweetarts and gobstoppers that Princess Nagger quickly absconded with except these pictured):
I loved absolutely everything – thanks so much, “sister” Liberty! Your thoughtfulness and generosity is appreciated so much more than words can say.
And thank you to Shawn and Impulsive – ladies, your hostessing and pairing of partners was stellar, and I thank you for the privilege of participating. Should you decide to do another one in the future, you can count me in. Thank you for everything.
That’s about it for this week – feel free to link up and hop around to all the other awesome randomizers – they’re all so entertaining. If you’re visiting from Talk To Us Tuesday, feel free to link up, too – the more the merrier. Rebel On!
We’re still rebelling while Keely is still hiatus-ing (which is closing in on a full year of hiatus, so I’m thinking she might not be back and I’ll just have to wear the Random Crown permanently and make a new badge), if you have a smorgasbord in your brain and want to let it out, c’mon and join in the fun! Rebel On!
And I’m joining up with the Tuesday Friend and Follow – if you’re stopping by here from there, please do me a favor and follow via LinkyFollowers – as of Thursday, GFC will be defunct on my blog since the cads at Goggle are boycotting non-Blogger blogs.
