First off, I am here to tell you there are not any pictures of our mundane-ness over the past two weeks due to the long and slow death of my camera. Unlike Michael Jackson, it did not get any hoopla for all the years of great memories it gave me. We did not sing songs or even buy it flowers. But I am about to spend a butt load of money on a new one. Lord help me.
Between a new found love for the two year old toy, Barbie mini-kingdom, (which I had posted for sale on Monday, only to be told within minutes that "WE ARE NOT GOING TO SELL THIS, I LOVE IT, AND WANT TO KEEP IT FOREVER!), there has not been a great deal of excitement around these here parts. It has rained almost everyday. I have all but called DISH and canceled our package due to the innumerable hours my daughters have spent watching Hannah, Carly, and Sonny. I cannot even bribe them outside with a Popsicle...because it is too hot, and they would rather eat it in the A/C while watching TV!
My carpet is now multi-colored in areas because I had this crazy idea of turning off the television and painting. Even with new canvases, their imagination seemed to be stunted in the off mode, yet they were able to drip NON-water color paint onto the beige carpet.
I have closets to clean, a school room to organize, bathrooms to scrub and bills to pay, but instead I too have found myself lost in the mini-kingdom wondering if Rapunzel or Annalise will pick up the cake from the bakery or get the cat from the vet. I will let you know later...gotta go, there is a flood in the castle....
