Breaking Silence

Hey! Long break, right? I know I should have a good excuse like pregnancy or divorce or menopause, but I don't. Wait. Is laziness a good excuse? Because if it is, that's my excuse. For everything.

While I was gone, did anybody do anything awesome?

Here's what I did:

Crafts with kids (Oh, you guys, I have budding artists! If you saw what my kids can do with cupcake liners, you'd be SOOOO jealous. You get the sarcasm, right?)
Girls' Retreat to Las Vegas with my sisters
Doctor Appointments

Jakers broke his leg today? yesterday? a week ago? It's hard to pinpoint the exact moment, but the splint went on today. I'm sure CPS will be calling any time. The doctor looked at me a little funny when I couldn't tell him how it happened. In my defense, it's a teeny tiny fracture.

Rhett chipped his front tooth and he now looks like his name should be Abner. Either that or Jeb. Also, maybe we should plant corn in the backyard and leave a car in the front yard to rot. But don't think I don't find him as attractive as the day I married him, because man, what's not to love about jagged teeth?

Veevs announced that she would like to have a birthday party themed entirely around unicorns. Unicorns that fly and are purple. And then I puked (but not in a pregnancy way).

Spe announced that he would no longer like to wear any kind of underwear, whatsoever. I purposely misunderstood and said that I would buy him a larger size since he is feeling uncomfortable in his current underwear. He insists it's commando or nothing. Wait, that's the same thing, isn't it? Commando? Nothing? Get it?

Wow. I bet you thought I saved up all this great material for my triumphant return to blogging, didn't you? Were you wrong or what! I'm still dishing out the kind of subpar family crap that I'm famous for! Or not famous for, at all, in any way.

Anyway. What's new with you?

Laziness is always a good excuse in my book! ;D

I was just looking at my google reader wondering what happened to you.

Hey! I've been missing you!
I'm glad you started with Breaking Silence, and not Breaking Wind.

Man, am I a 13 year old today or what?

ow, broken leg! MEAN MOMMY.

I'm so boring, I have nothing to say about what I've been doing. I did catch the cleaning lady (yes, I had one) stealing pills. Cool. Exciting. For about five seconds. Then it's just annoying.

(Really, I'm not a pill popper, I just like to stock-pile meds JUST IN CASE)

Kids going commando? Purple unicorns? Your life is very interesting...

And I think that life gets busy and we have to drop out once in a while---nice you're back.

We've missed you around here!

I am amazed by Spe's early discovery of the freedoms that come with no underwear. I assume you'll be purchasing a kilt for him soon? Your family would be so multi-cultural! (Wait--is a white trash snaggle tooth multicultural?)

So fun to catch up on the blog! I burst out laughing with the part about "ABNER!" Haha, Heids. I really miss you and all your sarcasm. So glad I can get a dose of it here on the bloggy woggy.
