Keeping it Real Recall

I said I’d start this blog to keep it real but I should qualify, real to me.  If you are one of those mums who can get it all done congrats.  I don’t know you and I really think you are a fiction but heck, mermaids are fiction too but it’s fun to believe in them.  Here’s what I have done so far this week that most likely wouldn’t admit to:

  1.  I had to steal money from my big kid’s wallet to pay the cleaning lady.  I couldn’t get my act together to make sure I had the exact amount on hand, $113.00. Really who has that perfect amount of cash together in the age of debit and credit?  Thankfully my big kid hoards all her cash so the $8.00 I needed to top up the fee to get the house cleaned I had to steal from her.  I did replace it with $10 so really she did come out ahead.
  2. I have a pair of navy velvet tights that I love.  They are a size too small but I look fabulous in them when they stay done up.  I wear a shirt long enough to cover the zipper so when it ‘pops’ open no one can see.  But again, I am vain and they look great.
  3. I ate the last chocolate fudge cookie and likely 2/3 of the box. Double frosting. Might be why those pants in point 2 don’t fit. Yes packaged cookies, I don’t bake.  I hate it.  I hate the mess and the time it takes.
  4. To get my youngest to move into a gear I can work worth, I tell her the coyotes will get her.  She will likely speak to a therapist about this and hate me but you know what, I am getting my stuff done.

There are likely more things that I have done but frankly I can’t even remember the drive to work in the morning so that’s enough for this ‘Keeping it Real Recall’.

Enjoy a cookie folks, it’s Wednesday.  Good enough reason as any.
