The Neglectful Blogger Does a Post


First you need to know that this little beauty, complete with chipped fingernail polish went to church camp.

And left her little sister all alone with nobody to play with. The same sister who is dependent on knowing the exact whereabouts of her big sister at all times...Even if it means lying on the floor outside the bathroom door, waiting (im)patiently for her to finish so she can bully her about playing a game...

Then, my brother in law and his two oldest came and helped paint our house. I did not take a single picture as I was determined that Studmuffin had my camera and placed it somewhere unknown to me...


However, after my children returned yesterday from five DAYS at my sister's house, and she sent this mug to me, I became desperate in my search for the missing camera. After all, a gal has her priorities, right? Of course, after Studmuffin continued to deny misplacing aforementioned camera, I decided to investigate with the girls....

Who also claimed complete ignorance on the whereabouts of the missing item...

Then, I had a small epiphany.

I had placed the camera in my work bag to show off pictures of my family at work!!!

And promptly forgot all about it and did not share one tiny snapshot with a single coworker!

Now, if that ain't motherly love and pride and all that jazz, I do NOT know what is!


So, here I am today, doing a post inspired by a mug given to me by my sister Paula. You remember, the sister who doesn't have a blog, but totally should?

Yeah. That sister.

Anyway, my kids HAD to be gone all week, as my nanny was at camp, and Studmuffin was going to be traveling this week, and really, who wants to have a friend dump their kids on them for undetermined periods of time so their mom can work?

Well, apparently, aunts are just the solution for such a dilemma.


And, WHAT ABOUT THAT MUG? Is it not too perfect for an obsessed coffee lover such as myself? I texted her that I love, love, LOVE it, and she said she saw it and thought of me and knew she had to get it for me.

What a great sister!


This morning I enjoyed using my new mug to get myself perked up to work on painting the trim of the house. Bryan (Studmuffin's brother, whom I did not take one single photo of) came last weekend and used his super duper power painter to do the gables....



As you can see, I still have some trim to go. We worked until about noon, ate lunch, and after cooling off in the house, we decided to wait until this evening to start in again. Well, the heat and the fact that we ran out of brown paint put a stop to our productivity!

Anyhoo, now you have a brief update on the goings on in this rambler's house.

You may now all resume your regularly scheduled lives...

So I didn't realize the mug had two women on it...the one I saw looked just like you when your hair is short so I knew it was meant for you...but then I see the other face on the mug strongly resembles me. Hmmmm very interesting!!!
