You've Been Waiting With Baited Breath

I'm feeling very Dr. Seussian today.
The time has come, the time is now.
Just read read read,
I don't care how.
The CSN giveaway winner will be announced at the end of this post.
If you happen to be the winner you will be asked three questions.
The answers will be found on this page.
So you may as well read it.
Sneaky huh?
Can you tell I was a highly hated revered Junior high teacher before I started this gig?
I have many tricks up this proverbial sleeve.

I mentioned we went for a picnic a few days back?
Well I took hundreds of pictures. You've looked at three so far.
They will have absolutely nothing to do with what I'm writing about.
Just thought I would warn you in case you are one of those people who would 
desperately try to find the connection between my words and the image.
There is none.

I chose sleep over writing a post last night.
Can you tell I'm getting older?  That extra year just did me in.

I did write a few really funny things in my head though.
But they're *poof* gone,  just like that.

I haven't told you yet, but I almost died two days ago.
It was a crazy close call.
It was my own fault.
I have no business trying to play soccer with my kids.
Especially in sandals.
When I've had a chance to fully recover I will tell you all about it.
I don't have any pictures though,
so I thought I would ask my kids to draw what they saw.
It might be a good way for them to work through their trauma.

Boy I wish I could remember that funny bit I thought of last night.
It's killing me.
Did you know I'm a worrier?
I am.
Big time.
Just thought I'd share.
Did you know I'm a sharer?
I am.
Big time.
And I'm going to share that my current worry is that no one is reading this as you've all decided to click to another blog.
But then again, how would you know if you are leaving behind $40 smackaroos?
Life is full of difficult decisions.
Should I Stay or Should I Go?
(name that song)
Now for that which you have been waiting for with baited breath.
I put my girls to work.
This was an exciting event in our house.
Can you sense we don't get out much?

Congratulations you lucky duck!

And last but not least...
A Big Huge Thank You to
The Empress
Good Day Regular People
for featuring my blog this week.
I have  to admit I've been a little worried,
as I've never hosted Royal Subjects before.
But to my relief there has not been any tomato throwing or jousting throw downs.
You have been wonderful gracious guests,

Good Tidings and other Highness-y good wishes to each and every one of you.

  6. Congrats to the winner! I'm sure I'm completely wrong, but I'm going to chime in and answer the name that song it "Should I Stay or Should I Go" by The Clash? Unless they title their songs the way Zeppelin did in which case, I don't have a clue (how is it that I know *a lot* of their songs but have no idea the name of their songs?).

  7. You have such great helpers. I can't wait to kids that are old enough to help out ;o)
