Maggie's Memos: My Tirade

Yes, we're still alive.  No, we're not giving up blogging.  Yes, we realize it's been two weeks since we've posted anything.  Yes, we're very ashamed of ourselves.  Well, Tess is, at least. ;)

Blogging has been a bit difficult over the past couple of weeks.  Mama has been going crazy trying to keep the house clean between parties.  Yeah, like that worked.  She just got done doing her own blog post...when she was supposed to be doing laundry and dishes.  This is what the woman does.  She procrastinates until the last minute, and then she freaks out and makes all of us help her, while she runs frantically through the house, tossing dirty laundry here and collecting trash there.  Yes, it's been a joyous two weeks.

So, why on earth did I start this stupid post anyway?  Oh yeah, just to say that we will be back to regular blogging again in the next week or so, once Mama returns to her normal, sane self and lets us actually have computer time.  (Did I mentioned she also started Weight Watchers this week?  So she's stressed AND hungry...not a pretty combination!)

In other news, all the gang is fine.  We've been pretty cooped up between the house guests and the sudden weather change (gale-force winds and pounding rain for a week!).  Oh, and Charlie had eye surgery.  She's all recovered now, and her eyes can actually open and close like they're supposed to.  When she first got here, she had a painful eye defect, so Mama's been wanting to get that fixed.  She scheduled an appointment with Dr. Jodybo on AGPT (that's agplaythings.com, for those of you who don't know) about a week or two ago, and now Charlie's back and as good as new.  Maybe she'll even share about it later...we'll have to see.

Sorry things have been so sporadic lately.  I hate it when circumstances beyond our control make US look flaky.  Thanks for that, Mama.  We have adoring fans that we have to appease, okay?  Work with us here!

Okay, that's all.  Hopefully we'll have a real post up sometime next week.  Laters!

P.S.  I just checked out our popular posts at the bottom of the page, and most of them are Belle's Bulletins posts.  What's up with that, people?!!  If you want to read those posts, go to Belle's blog!  This blog happens to be about 18" dolls, not sappy 12 inchers!!  Sheesh.  Just when you think they appreciate you.

P.P.S.  Tess just reminded me that today is Lucy's birthday.  We wanted to give her a shout out even though she's not living here anymore.  Happy Birthday, Lucy!  Hope you have fun at Mama's Mother-in-Law's house with your friends! :)  Oh, and Sunday is Piper's birthday, so just in case we don't get a chance to get on again, Happy Early Birthday, Piper!  Hope you have a fun bday at Mimi's. :)

Hi Maggie! I'm glad to see that you're blogging again! :) I'm glad that Charlie is all better now! Happy birthday Lucy!

Glad to hear Charlie is recovering from her surgery!

And happy birthday, Lucy!

Don't feel bad about not blogging. Sometimes you just get busy and something has to fall by the wayside. We understand. We're just happy to see you back.

Also, your Mama shouldn't be embarrassed about procrastinating. Everybody does it. Yeah, it's not the greatest habit, but she's only human. We think she needs to cut herself some slack.

*hugs*

Love,
Bree

Thanks, Bree. :) We're glad to be back.

Tess is always telling me that I need to cut Mama some slack, too...and she's a lot better at encouraging Mama than I am. I guess I should try to be a little more patient...but it's just so fun to be ranty! ;)

Hope you have a fun trip!

Wow, Maggie. It's very predictable to find one of your post labeled: My Tirade. I mean really, was anyone surprised. (hehe)

Sorry you haven't been on the laptop lately. Our mom isn't exactly on top of her blog either. She hasn't been using her laptop often (probably for the best) so when we try and get on we don't know the password! Well that's our life for now. Sorry you had to listen to that.....I guess that's MY tirade. ;)

Lol...hey Maddie. Yeah, I guess my tirades are no surprise by now. But that's why you all love me, right? ;) I mean, think how boring this blog would be if all you had to read were Tess and Emma's nice, polite, Austeny posts! *Shudder*

Sorry you haven't had much computer time lately either. What's up with our humans? It must be an epidemic!

Honestly... yeah, Maggie, that's one of the reasons we like you! ;-)

Not the only reason, of course. You have many good qualities. But yes, we like your rather rebellious enthusiasm.

Love,
Bree

Aww, thanks, Bree. Nice to know I have some fans...er, friends here too. ;)
