Time Flies...

...when you're procrastinating.

I was supposed to clean the house today in preparation for Auntie Kate's arrival on Tuesday, but instead? I spent it researching (with Theo) the accusations implicit in yet another election-related, out-of-context audio clip e-mailed to me by a friend. The entire afternoon, we did this. I call it a homeschool crash course in critical thinking and analysis of sources. I also call it a great way to neglect my younger children and fall even further behind on laundry.

One more week, right? I really hope Auntie Kate doesn't want to talk politics.

I'm relieved to hear that I am not the only one leery of messing with gas appliances. I swear, your comments make me feel almost normal. Or, at least, less lonely...

Almost midnight - more tomorrow, after I indulge in a desperate housecleaning frenzy...


  1. One more week? *Sigh* It seems like the end is taking forever...kinda like pregnancy, doesn't it seem? The end gets slower and slower!

  2. I'm over it already. I don't want to hear any more from EITHER side. Happy housecleaning. That is what I am procrastinating on doing RIGHT NOW.

  3. Only clean the bathrooms--I read that once--it's the only room people are alone in so it's the only one they notice is dirty.

  4. I'm with you. Sick to death of the whole politics thing and so ready for it to be over. Yep - one week from today, except I have a feeling it won't end next Tuesday. Then there will be the "aftermath" Ugh!!

    I left you an award on my blog. :)

  5. yeah, time seems to pass slower in the last few weeks, and I get more uncomfortable. I'm having trouble breathing. Nice analogy.

    Thank God for Jon Stewart, host of the Daily Show and Vicki Iovine, author of "The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy". Humor appears to be the key to surviving this all. Thanks SuburbanCorrespondent!!

  6. very nice blog site. I found you some how looking for things on our sons irth defects well one of them esophageal atresia and down syndrome and tracheomalacia and so on. Anyways very wonderful, I wish you all the best.

  7. I am equal parts excited to have it over and fearful it won't go the way I want it to.

  8. Glad I could distract you from the Pants on Fire ratings (man, I love that one!) and the like going on and divert you to the Hair On Fire rating of the idea of using gas grills.

    Notice that I'm typing this as I'm procrastinating cleaning house. You're in good company.

  9. one more week and then thank god, it's over.

  10. I'm having people over the night of the election. We'll either celebrate or cry! For some reason, my husband thinks that this is a good reason to clean the house. We haven't done that much in the last 8 years, why start now?!?
