S**W!

My goodness Blogger has been as grumpy these past few days as I have!


Here is a happy snowman... Do you see him in all his wintry glory? Do you see how jolly he is? Switch it up and that is exactly how grumpy I am at his very existence.

Sure he's handsome... and the girls love him to pieces, I'm just crusty that there was enough of the blasted "whitestuff" to even make him.... see? no four letter words on THIS blog site! My only consolation is that he is as bald as I am becoming. That's why he wears the hat. I need a hat. My hair is coming out by the fistfuls and it it very.dark.brown. That is... when it's not grey.

Also? I am exhausted. Pearl has been playing at sleeping the whole night through for the past two weeks. Just when I think she really means it, she gets up every two hours for a night and my body is shutting down. Oh... and the Chaos Girls all of a sudden need only nine and a half hours of seep a night. That's what they tell me anyway. I, myself have gone from
needing a total of seven hours of sleep in a 24 hour period of time to needing nine or ten hours. WHAAaaaa? This sleep crap is really cutting in to my blogging habit!

On Saturday before we got dumped on again I was taking a nap. Ahhhhhh... blessed survival! Birdie wanted to go outside to play so Dadguy said she could if she got herself dressed. She did such bang-up job that he told her she just needed to grab a jacket before she went out. She did. Her two year old sister's jacket. And she wore it. As you can plainly see. It is the pink thing on her head.

The shoes? They are from last winter and I have NO IDEA how she jams her feet in them let alone how she can stand to hobble around while wearing them. Holy foot binding batman! But, y'see... they light up when she limps about in them so it is....
well, still a mystery.

I hate snow more and more each year. Why I have lived in the midwest my entire life is beyond me. I keep telling my wife that if I ever win the powerball I won't even take the time to quit my job. I will be on a plane to some tropical island and never come back to the midwest. My plan has a serious flaw, I never buy powerball tickets, so I guess I'll be here forever.

I went through a serious case of the grumpies a week or so ago. I was blaming it on my meds since I could think of no good reason why I should have been so grumpy. It only lasted a couple of days.

Birdie sure did do a nice job of getting dressed! That sounds exactly like something my kids would do.

Mama D said...

Yeah, what is with Blogger lately?? Grrr. We have had such a mild winter here but it's still hanging in there. I wish it would just go away. I can't wait to get Audrey in her stroller and out for walks! By the way you have a gorgeous fence!!

Blogger has been moody....

I am hoping the snow stays away - supposed to get some to the south of us and it certainly is cold out today. Still home with sick ones... The pic are great. Pan went out to the mail box today - NO Socks- ugh!!

Nancy said...

LOL at Birdie's outfit. But hey, she did wear a jacket...

Here's hoping for nice springlike weather soon!

Diana - Teacher Mom said...

Good job Birdie! Light up shoes are cool. What we girls go through for fashion's sake...

Lei said...

Yes, what is up with Blogger? Grrr... anyway, I'd love to send you some TX sun... before long I will wish it were snowing! Lol! And so funny with the too small clothes... my hubby is constantly trying to dress my kids in sizes 6 monhs to a year old. Yeah - can't find the Windex but manages to locate last year's clothes!!!

Nobody- yeah... my Dad is always telling us the cool things he's gonna buy us with his lottery winnings. To my knowledge he's never bought a lottery ticket in his life.

Mama D- Yup! that fence was put up by the developer and was a chunk of the deciding factor for the lot we picked. I LOVE THAT WALL! It's only along the very back... the sides of our back yard are the standard (for Utah anyway) 6 foot high blindingly white vinyl fencing. meh, to the ghastly white.

Fantastagirl- no socks? Woman I HEAR YA! only in my house they are just as likely to not be wearing any socks because they cannot find any. that are clean.

Nancy- Amen

Diana- I guess I should be grateful she's not hitting me up for a pair of Jimmy Choos.

Lei- In Dadguy's defense... this was her own couture concoction. I have since located and adios'ed those shoes. We have been going through our storage in the basement and she found them in the collection of her old shoes that I am saving for LaLa. Shoes... I should write a post about all the dad-gum shoes around this house of Chaos.

Linsey said...

I see pictures of snow and am grateful that we are still in shorts. I hope you get spring weather soon!!!!

Diana - Teacher Mom said...

Shoes by Jimmy Choo. Now those are expensive shoes. If my girl ever asks for Jimmy Choos, I'd reply: Jimmy who?

bon said...

Linsey- are you rubbing it in?! I HOPE you are not rubbing it in, or else... well... something!

Diana- No doubt sistah! those bad boys are sooo outside of my budget that I had never even conciously seen a pair till emmabee blogged about 'em!
