I will begin with a disclaimer. I, in no way, intended to be "complaining" in my last post. I have been told that I have a "dry" sense of humor (would the opposite then be a "wet" sense of humor, I would love to hang out with that person) and my story could easily be misunderstood. I simply wanted to express reality. I am very thankful for all that I have and have to do. Actually unloading the dishwasher is a great feat and I am awfully proud of me for accomplishing that.

Anyhow, true to form for me, I got distracted while microwaving a bag of popcorn the other day. Let me just tell you 7 minutes is TOO long. Once I got the small fire out, we were good to go. Or so I thought. Every thing I put in my microwave now tastes like burnt popcorn. Does anyone know how to eradicate that??? My microwave burrito just isn't the same anymore!!

I thought it was an awesome and truthful picture of our lives as SAHMs. Not that we don't love it or our kids, but there is a sense of running on the hamster wheel. One thing that is really hard to adapt to is never having the feeling of accomplishing a task. Since as soon as you're done unloading the dishwasher, it needs to re-loaded!

Kinda like them babies of ours~they want to eat ALL. DAY. LONG.

Love ya babe, :-)

I thought that you had completely lost your faith, and were in serious need of counseling. Those kinds of attitudes and thoughts are simply unacceptable in a supposedly Christian woman.

I didn't feel like you were complaining at all! I thought it was great to see a day in your gives me a good reason as to why you aren't blogging as much anymore! ;)

I thought of you yesterday as I was vacuuming my dining room - I moved all of the chairs out from around the table to vacuum, and I swear I went back to putting those chairs away about 5 times, before I actually completed the task. It was crazy!

Candi, your post was hilarious and sounds like my life EXCEPT I have no kids. Now I'm worried if I'd just gonna get more ADD or simply won't achieve anything!!! This is why I ahve you around - to help me through life's craziness!!! Onto the microwave - stick a bowl of lemon juice (can be that squirty kind) mixed with a little water. heat it for a minute then leave in there with door closed. Read it in Simple Living or whatever Martha's mag is!

We just had the same problem with microwave popcorn-it smells like nothing I've ever smelled before!! Horrible!! Thanks, Clair for the infor, I was just about to throw out the whole microwave!! By the way, I agree with Clair, I thought I had ADD also, I start one thing and then my whole day is filled with other stuff. You are a normal mom!

Who in the world said you had a dry sense of humor? How weird.

I also thought you needed some counseling as well as a swift kick in the bootie. :) Not really! hey - camden is getting older by the SECOND. lets schedule some photos little lady!

i agree with Kathy - you should write a book one day when it's all over :)
