No, it's not "talk like a pirate day" (and besides, that would be "Aaaarrrrr", not "Aaaarrrggghhhh"). ;) I'm just completely frustrated here. I hate promising things and then not following through with them. I know I keep saying that Katie's interview is coming up, and then not doing it. I do have good excuses, but that still doesn't make me feel better.
First, Katie got sick. And really, she's been going back and forth for a few weeks now. Thankfully, none of the rest of us have gotten it yet. Yesterday, she was finally feeling like herself again. Those of you who read Mama's blog know this because Katie posed for Mama's post yesterday.
So now that she's finally better, can I do the interview? Noooo, because Mama is completely freaking out about her oldest daughter's party this Saturday. The house is a disaster area. No, really. It looks like a toy store exploded in the livingroom and playroom. I think a laundry store might have exploded in the livingroom, too. So she's all panicky now, because today she's going to be staying with Papa's grandmother all day, and Friday she's reading to her daughter's first grade class. That leaves Wednesday and Thursday to clean things up. Let me tell ya, we could sure use Mary Poppins and her "snap" and "Spoonful of Sugar" song to help us out here. I tried singing the song when Mama was panicking about the house yesterday. She didn't take it too well.
So to make a long story short, Mama has now decided that EVERYONE needs to pitch in to help with the cleaning so we can get it done on time. Seriously? I mean, what are we, her little servants or something? Maybe she's getting us mixed up with the elves in "The Elves and the Shoemaker" (I know, I know, they didn't clean the house, but they did help out...and no, we're not as tiny as elves, either. Sheesh!! So that wasn't the greatest comparison. Picky, picky!). All I can say is, if she asks us to clean the bathroom, she's going to have a mini revolution on her hands!
Since we'll be busy with the drudgery of household chores this week, I highly doubt we'll be doing any more posts until after the party. Let me tell you, though, we'd better get invited to the "Dolly and Me" party after all the work we're going to be putting in to make it happen!
I guess that's about it. Just wanted to let you know that you probably won't hear from us until next week sometime. And can I just say, 32 followers in a matter of days? Wow, you flatter us! Thanks for being patient. I'd be sending annoyed comments by now. :}
Have a good week...may you avoid housework like the plague!!!! Too bad we can't.
