I am SO resisting Reality Steve this time around, but it's hard because half of me really wants to just log on and find out what will happen. There is like NOTHING else on TV right now, so The Bachelorette is my weekly source of entertainment. I can't stand Ali...such a faker, but I love it anyway!

I will not succumb to Reality Steve... or will I? Should I? DId you?

Meanwhile, UGH... SUCKS that you were the DD. And yes, especially since they were freakin' reminiscing about HS ? C'mon people! Consider the freaking audience. Wouldn't you go out of your way NOT to go on and on b/c there was a peep sitting there who does not care? I would. Whateve. Annoying.

I'm freaking out, too, about this summer w/the kids home. Today is Day 1 (excluding Fri/Mon), and I'm devastated. How awful does that sound?

It really is creepy the way we live on the same wavelength! I'm going to crash the car into a wall if I have to listen to The Chipmunks movie again AND why does preschool have to end so early and why aren't there camps for little ones that don't cost 250 a week, each????

Ok, what do you mean you know how the Bachelorette is going to play out??? Do tell!!

Lots of yummy love,

I don't freak out about losing things...then I'll casually ask Husband if he's seen something and he launches a freaking search party that could rival Elizabeth Smart...he's a nut...I'm cool...enough said.

Laundry mountain...just take it one step at a time. I'm so glad to see that someone else loves Supernanny too!

I hate it when people start talking about high school and growing up here! makes me feel so left out.
Man I would so be freakin out if I misplaced my camera! Probably a good thing that you don't :)
I too was quite enjoying the 2 1/2 hrs. my son would go to K. Kinda mixed feelings about having him go all day in the fall. Part of me is really excited but then I'm sure they'll be mommy guilt too. :)

I forgot about Reality Steve, oh I wasn't going to look last time with Jake. And I did. Temptation......
I know your pain, or at least I'm going to feel your pain this summer with no preschool or grade school for either kid. I'm thinking positively. I'm trying.
I lose sleep over missing items. Seriously. I will tear a house apart looking for something. It must be part of being Obsessive. It's such a tragedy.

Happy Tuesday!

You crack me up!

I have a similar laundry pile...on my agenda for tomorrow. :)

The trackball is THE WORST!!!!! I ended up upgrading to one with the trackpad because I couldn't take it anymore. Good luck! I did try putting a little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip and "cleaning" the trackball to get it to move in all directions again. Usually worked.

I can't believe it's June already! I don't always freak out about misplacing things, but I am starting to freak out about Kindergarten in the fall. Although I am looking forward to more free time.

And yes, the husband owes you! :)

You are such a good wife, offering to be DD when you were probably the one that could have used it more than anyone not being from there! If I couldn't find my camera, I'd be ripping the house apart! Chipmunks the Squeakuel ... snort!!! I still enjoy the The Bachelorette - male drama is rather weird, though. Happy June! Happy PINT!!!

The huz and I tackled the majority of the laundry mountain yesterday. Surprisingly we made it out alive, but only barely. The only reason we both worked on it yesterday is becuase of the upcoming vacation. I get to pack and stuff on my own so I am taking all week to pack. The kids are running around in PJ's only all week! hehe

I can't believe there is another person out there who loses things and doesn't care! I too, also wait till they turn up. NO point in losing your energy and mind about them, unless I REALLY need it, but that's rare.

The Chipmunks have been forever banned from our house since The Girl was a tot. So what did my MIL do as a joke one Christmas? She sends the friggin' CASSETTE TAPE to me so I can play it in our car for her one and only grandchild at the time!

Never been so happy to have a tape "accidently" get eaten!

Thanks for stoppin' by my blog!

I love, love, love your post it's!

As for your BB ball thing, clean it w/ a cotton ball & rubbing alcohol. That should do the trick. The ball gets dirty from the oil and dirt on our fingers, and therefore it sticks every now & then. The alcohol cleaning should help. That was the most annoying thing w/ my old BB -- My new one doesn't have a track ball any more!

I am resolved NOT to watch the Bachelorette this season, despite there being nothing else to watch. So far I have resisted.....

I haven't heard of reality Steve. I may have to look it up. I am enjoying the Bachelorette. Curious to know what will happen, but I think I want to watch it play out.
We have seen the first Chipmunk movie so many times that we can sing all of the songs and say most of the words. We haven't managed to watch the second one yet, but I may go rent it just to have something new to sing. :)
