Get comfortable - we've got a lot to cover.

I'm waaaaay behind on Blogstalking, so let's jump right in, beginning with Week 6's assignment - A Day in My Life.

First of all, there is NO such thing as a typical day in my life. There are some things that I do pretty much every day, but very rarely do I have two similar days in a row. And that's how I like it.

The first thing I do every day, as soon as I get out of bed, is make the bed. It's really the only thing I'm anal about.

I absolutely LOVE this bed.

I take a shower every day. The nudie pic comes later, pervs.

Post-Shower, in my fluffy pink robe.

And then I walk into my walk-in closet to pick out my ensemble. I'm still organizing in there, but you'll notice the picture Pie drew of me for Mother's Day last year.

Here's what I'm wearing today.

I didn't make the sweater, but I love to wear beautiful knit sweaters around people who know I knit, just so they can assume I made them. Tee hee!

Here's my entry for the current Week 8 assignment - What's For Breakfast? A Caffeine-Free Diet Coke. Or sometimes a Caffeine-Free Diet Pepsi. Whichever's on sale.

Then I ask my favorite ubersexy weatherman boyfriend Glenn what the weather's going to be like today.

And I check the time.

Then I walk Beebie down our beautiful tree-lined street to her bus stop. And I wave wildly like a crazy person, just to embarrass her. Such fun.

So now it's just me and the boys hanging out until 12:45. What to do, what to do...?

Well, I guess I could clean my bedroom.

Or Beeb's room.

Or the basement.

Screw it, I'm gonna dick around on Knitty for a while.

I need to put some clean laundry away. Most of it goes upstairs to the boys' room.

So I'll clean the boys' room.

Two hours later, it's pretty much as good as it's gonna get. Notice the bins are even labeled!

Oh, shit - I almost forgot to take Pie to school.

So now I'm hangin out with Tito until Beebie and Pie get home. I think we'll go to Hobby Lobby. Where they DON'T sell size 9 wooden DPN's, FYI.

So then I hang out with Tito, maybe take a nap or play a game or watch a Thomas DVD or something. Or maybe we'll take silly pictures of my bellybutton. My bellybutton's name is Neville McNavel.

I was gonna do A Day In the Life of Neville, but it didn't come out as clever as I wanted. My bellybutton looks weird because of the vertical scar under it from my gallbladder surgery and the fact that I have a tattoo right above it, behind Neville's eyes. And I'm not even going to mention the stretch marks. I certainly hope that seeing my bellybutton makes you feel better about yours.

Back to the story - big kids come home, and Pie shows me his homework.

It says "I showed perseverance when I made comic books." Only it kinda looks like Comic Boobs. Which, obviously, is WAY funnier.

Next I'll start dinner, and we'll eat at the dining room table I scored for FREE on Craigslist!!

And if you've made it all the way through this post, here's your reward. GRATUITOUS NUDITY, as promised.

That's my Week 7 - The Oldest Pic of Yourself You Can Find. I think I'm about two years old there. Same impish grin, though, ain't it? ;)

My place looks very similar to yours and I don't have kids!
Great post.

Your day is so much more interesting than mine.

Jesh said...

Comic boobs! Ahahaha, very clearly your child, there.

Eryn said...

Comic Boobs! That's going to be my phrase of the day.

turtlegirl76 said...

I love your belly button! It's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

Jo said...

Kudos to you for posting a belly-button picture - it looks like one of the characters in Oobi to me. And oddly, I think that is a a compliment.

Bezzie said...

Ha ha! That picture looks like it could pass for one of your kids' pictures!

DomesticOverlord said...

Nice legs, hubba hubba.

I got my week 6 up today tomorrow I'll do week 7 then Thursday I'll do week 8 which will make me all ready for week 9 on Friday. Yeah, let's live the dream. lol

Elspeth said...

Sorry, my belly button is 10000 times worse than yours. And you had 3 kids like me! I'm very jealous.

Anniebananie said...

I love the belly button shot. And comic boobs... that's what I have - comic boobs! Thank you - that is going to make me chuckle for the rest of the day... your kid is brilliant.

Batty said...

Comic boobs! If there were any way at all to deny maternity, this sentence would have just spoiled any chance you ever had. His mother's son, obviously!

Your closet looks like mine.

SiressYorkie said...

I don't know what you're complaining about. You have a son that can spell BOOBS. I think your future's pretty much set.

And do you know what I'd give to have a craft store near me?? The nearest one is in Sheffield, a terrifying 2 hour ride from me down M roads which all terminate, I'm certain, at the gates of hell.

Or Rotterdam...never really followed them to their conclusion.

SiressYorkie said...

BTW, what happened to your tits in that shower pic?? Did you hoik them over your shoulders? Coz that's just scary.

Lili said...

Okay, let me just tell you how happy you made me by posting that belly-botton pic. Yours looks just like mine (except I'm a brown girl, so my stretch marks are much more—let's say DRAMATIC :) ). I have the the scar from my gallbladder surgery. I thought I was the only one!!! Of course, I never had a cool tattoo like you...
