Still Here, Just Lazy...

Who says knitting can't be relevant to our current economic situation? Check out this story on knitting's potential to bring peace of mind to the newly unemployed. All you non-knitters? Watch out. We are taking over the world.

Now I'm just waiting for our venerable First Lady to pick up those needles, during one of those interminable state dinners, say...

*****************

Speaking of Mme Michelle, does she have a blog? No? Why not? She's got a chef and a maid and a babysitter - so it's definitely not a time issue. Maybe she's afraid she wouldn't get enough Followers. C'mon, Michelle! We're all waiting for it - MomInChief.blogspot.com! Can't you all picture it?

I don't care if he is the POTUS - I'm not going to pick up his underwear from the bathroom floor.

Sneaked down to the kitchen for some of that great pie late last night and was caught...damn Secret Service...

Don't know if I can go another 3 whole years without yelling at the girls...or my mom...

If one more person comments on my upper arms, I'm going to appear in the Rose Garden naked. That should change the focus a bit.

Hmmm....actually, maybe she'd be better on Twitter....

My job starts next week, I have been assured. Thank goodness. I'm finding (much to my surprise) that I cannot stand being home every evening. It used to be relaxing to sit around the quiet house after all the young ones had gone to bed, knitting or editing photos or maybe just reading; but now that we have teens, there is always some other non-adult who is also awake. And, as all parents of adolescents know, the teens never need anything until after 9 PM. Then they are all, "Oh, I need this medical form filled out by yesterday" or "I was supposed to have the teacher recommendations in by tomorrow, but I forgot" or "Did you sign me up for [fill in the blank] yet?"

Relaxing? I think not.

  1. I REALLLY want to learn how to knit- but I imagine I would get to frustrated and kill someone.... so for now, I will just crochet.

  2. I love knitting! Just started my first sweater ever! I do think I knit a little tightly though, its not quite as relaxing as one would hope and my wrist hurts... But I keep trudging along and trying to relax... :)

  3. Thanks for directing me to site meter! It was easy to sign up and I'm relieved I can be like the rest of the normal bloggers checking their stats! :)
    Oh, and knitting look lovely, but complicated... I would really like to learn. Paper crafting is more my deal.

  5. There is a reason I work in another state 4 days/week. ;-)

    I love your take on Michelle. She should SO start a blog.

  6. I've given up on time alone at night--half the time I go to bed before the teens do.

  7. I do, too, sometimes - just to hide.

  9. Sometimes I stay up with my teens, just to make sure they go to bed! Bonus: it is one of the few times I can get my oldest teen to say more than 2 words to me.

  10. Your teenagers sound more prepared than my sons who always remember that stuff 5 minutes before we leave the house for the day.
    YOU should write Michelle's blog--it would be brilliant and funny and witty--like both of you come to think of it! (Yes, I am a butt kisser)

    In my house, the children have been replaced by vampires! My oldest went to bed at 5 a.m. yesterday morning. Last night we had the "Come to Jesus" talk about how he needs to get up during the day and start looking for work. That's what he got a college degree for! The younger one ONLY wants to talk to me after I've announced that I'm heading for bed. Then she needs to outline complicated plans for this and that which mostly involve me spending my money to further her pleasure. I go to bed to avoid these conversations!

  12. I love the idea of Michelle writing a blog.

    Last night I was up late making a costume for a certain teenage son for a report he was doing today. The report would be a major part of his grade.
    As I was working on it, I had to keep telling myself "This is easier than having to drive him to summer school."
    He said I was "Awesome"

  13. Too funny! good luck with the new job. Although, I suspect you already HAVE a full time job.

    PS you can have my job. I'm pretty much done with it.

  14. And then after they leave home? Still no peace. They read your blog posts and say, "Oh God Mom!"

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think the peace ended the day they were born. I think Michelle should totally go for the blog, that would make for some great transparency behind the scenes at least.

  16. OMG - I am JUST finding out about this nighttime/kids around thing. It is TERRIBLE. TERRIBLE, I tell you! What the heck? It's like you NEVER get a break, now!
