You know when you pulled me aside at the rec center pool yesterday and said, "I read your blog this morning. I am so jealous of your kitchen remodel." I smiled and politely thanked you.
Yeah. Well. What I was really thinking was:
Dear Gawd woman I have gained more then four pounds in four days from eating out. Hola Sodium. I have been working out since September and suddenly this remodel is going to ruin it all for me and I am going to be fluffy for BlogHer and my sister's engagement party and the wedding in Chicago this weekend and dear Gawd I found a spider in Fifi's sippy cup this morning because our silverware/baking ware/plates are quasi organized on the fugly kitchen table in my dinning room without a floor:
and oh em gee the kids scarfed down every imaginable box of poptarts/granola bars/years old cereal for breakfast this morning and had two-year-old Mamba for their breakfast "dessert" because my pantry looks like this and it was a free-for-all which I had no control over... their "crack" was openly displayed:
and I should have taken a picture of what my children looked like by lunchtime but you saw them at the pool. Crazy. And then another mom at the pool walked right passed us and whispered, "Ugh, I can't stand mothers that don't get their hair wet at the pool. Like. Hello? You're at the pool you are supposed to get wet!" And I wanted to scream
start a bikini cat fight so much it hurt...
"THIS is all I have right now. A good hair cut!!! And God help me if I am going to let that go to waste."
Yeah. Well. That's what I was thinking at the time I smiled and politely thanked you. By the way, would you like to come over for a BBQ when the kitchen is done. Say... July of 2010 since this is the house that love built.
PS. Why won't anyone invite us over for dinner? Do they secretly enjoy me going to a Cleveland strawberry farm coming home with fifty-eight pounds of strawberries only to realize that I have no oven to bake my pie? UGH!
PPS. Can you please vote for me in the Nick's Parent Choice for best local Cleveland blog? You can do so daily it takes 1 sec. Heh, shameless enough?
