I Can Only Say One Thing: "MOOOOOO"!


My sister told me a joke the other day, and I've been chuckling ever since. It goes something like:

Why do they call it PMS?
Because "Mad Cow Disease" was already taken!

Oh come on...it's funny. Admit it. And if you can't admit it? Well, maybe...just maybe...MOOOO? Heh heh heh!

I don't want to get too personal here, but I've sure been feeling a little bovine-ish lately. I can always tell when the old hormones are racing because I throw a whole bunch of stuff away, I clean like a maniac, and I don't let my kids sass me one little bit. I also have wild, crazy, freaky dreams. I feel like simplifying life. I feel like packing the car with whatever fits and moving to the mountains. And I eat m&m's by the handful. Or cookies. Or cake frosting. Or straight Hershey's syrup. Any chocolate will do.

And one other strange thing...this blog irritates the heck out of me. It's too...something. Or maybe it's not enough...something. It's not real enough, I think. It makes it seem that I have everything figured out...from fixing your cracked heels to raising kids to making a great meal.

The truth is that I'm mostly floundering through life just like everyone else. I'm always amazed that I can do anything well or on time. I'm freaked out that I'm going to mess my kids up for the rest of their lives. I hope I'm a good friend. I pray I'm a great wife. I feel like I'm working my butt off to get things done...only to let everyone down anyway. Truly - if there is good coming from my scatter-brained self, it is only more proof that there is a God.

I have two sisters. Between us girls and my Mom...Dad used to joke (or maybe he was serious?!) that he was just going to pitch a tent for a week every month, and maybe we could sound a horn or raise a flag when it was safe for him to come back inside! I can't say I blame him.

Wait...is that hubby out in the backyard pitching a tent??

I can totally identify with the Mooish feeling and the joke was great! I'll be using that one for sure!

OH, I am afflicted with that same cleaning-frenzy. I like things pretty organized and clean anyway, but throw some hormones in the mix and I'm like a cleaning tornado. At least it's kinda useful! :-)

Well, I've got the messing my kids up for life down perfectly. I like to say that I'm saving money for either their college education or the years of therapy they'll need once I'm through with them.

And chocolate syrup right out of the container drizzled over a banana - nope, never done that! :)

I've been so busy lately, I haven't had time to keep up with anyone's blogs. I'll try to pop in more often. In the meantime, I thought you might like to know I completed the second/last installment of my Seek The Lord Sunday contribution today. You know, I knew it was going to be a long one so I almost didn't write it. I'm so glad I did and I just want to thank you for offering up the forum for me to share it. :)

God Bless!
