Spring break

Readers, my son is at my parents' house all week, and you know what that means. I'm not wearing any pants! Is what it means!

Okay, actually, I am wearing pants right now. But in spirit, I am as pantsless as the day I was born.

When I left Henry today, he was casually announcing to my mom that he couldn't help but notice that right next to the new adventure park in her town (the one where they're spending the day) there's an ice-cream stand, you know, so in case they needed some ice cream after riding some rides, well, there it is! Isn't that convenient! And then my mom said, "And I think after ice cream we should get you some more Legos for our house." Henry concurred, then glanced at me and said, "Okay, bye, Mom." Get out of here before you make some stupid speech about moderation, woman. My boy is going to miss me something fierce! I can feel it!

While Henry's over there, I am going to be here catching up on many long overdue projects and deadlines and plants that need planting. And mulch! My god, there's so much mulch to be, you know. Put down. Around the, uh, plants, and such. It's a wonder I haven't killed the neighbors' gardens, along with my own. Anyway, this is all to say that as I will be Going Wild all week, I will not be so much with the posting on this here web-log Internet site. Barring some sort of extraordinary occurrence, like I'm arrested for speeding while nude and I need you to bail me out. I am almost sure this won't happen again, though, so try not to worry.

I think your lack of mulch has effected my yard. In California. It couldn't possibly be me.

Do you think your mom would be interested in taking a few more kids? Because I'm thinking that some pantsless mulching is needed around my house, too.

Gardening is it?

Well then, you need to check out my latest post on reel mowers. No garden is complete without one. Your thighs will thank me. :-)

So how does one go about convincing people that they want to take your kids for a week, anyway? I think my problem might be that they worry that I might not come and pick them up once the week's over...

But I am still concerned....

Your blog is freakin' hilarious. I am sure you get that all the time, but I don't generally send out many bloggy accolades. I am adding it to my (very selcetive) blogroll. It's mostly comprised of people I know IRL, and a few I find very entertaining. Thanks!

Dittoing the worry, and hoping your heart's weather is smoother today.

Yes, the Twitter is worrying me, too.

Oh, honey. Pantless is only the beginning. If I was alone in this house, just my husband and I, I would be so naked so much...well, it's shameful. Can't wait till they are all moved out!Have fun!
