because I was feeling a little blah.
So I threw on these:
heehee, I know you are totally OVER seeing my fuzzy toe socks.
But in all honesty, they really do make me happy.
And those green striped thingys on them that look like spinning tops are actually upside-down Christmas trees.
I wish they would make toe socks with images that the person wearing them could see right-side-up. They seem to be designed to be viewed by the people who are not wearing them.
Because seriously, when am I going to be prancing around out in public in just my toe socks? No one else will frickin' see the design!
Anyway, back to me feeling a little blah.
I guess this post is about what I'm trying to do to get out of this state of funk that I'm in right now.
It's raining outside, which makes the INSIDE of my house quite dark.
So I lit this candle:
and now my house smells divine. So at least, for the time being, my house smells "good"...not like the dirty laundry that is sitting in my boys' laundry basket, waiting to be washed :(
I peeked out my window, ready to curse the rain and noticed this:
The rain actually made my dirty car look a lot cleaner.
Positive outlook, right?
So, as of right now this is what my:
"GET OUT OF YOUR FUNK AND MAKE YOURSELF HAPPY" list looks like:
1. Wearing happy toe socks with green-striped spinning tops :)
2. House smells like pumpkin spice....not dirty boy underwear.
3. Car looks clean when rinsed with rain water.
Pretty good right?
Now tell me.
What. Do. You. See. Here?
Let me help you:
For those of you who are "tracking with me"...the first word that comes to mind is.
Those. Are. ROCKS.
Pet Rocks, to be exact.
They belong to the boy who once owned a groovy
But whose stupid mom convinced him that we need to be mindful of the environment.
So what does this clever little boy do?
He brings the environment INDOORS.
And decides to save our planet....
3 rocks at a time.
But sadly, I know that these 3 pet rocks
They will have brothers, sisters, cousins.
And before I have a chance to exhale.
We will have a small quarry in the middle of my livingroom.
But this mom has learned her lesson.
I will not chuck those three "ROCK ANIMALS" (who I'm sure have names by now) into the garbage.
I am just wondering...
Why are they sitting on my leather cushion in front of the window?
Was his bedroom too dark for them?
The window overlooks our pool.Are they sunbathing?
Does he plan on letting them take a swim later on today?
One. Last. Question...
Should I be afraid?
Yes, be afraid....
Be very, very, afraid.
Okay. I have to say, those three stupid rocks overlooking our pool did make me laugh today.
Isn't it funny how our children can truly make us joyful even when they're not physically in our presence?
Gotta love a creative mind...
So before I go, here's my final list of
THINGS THAT GOT ME OUT OF MY FUNK TODAY:
1. Happy toe socks with green-striped spinning tops :)
2. A house that smells like pumpkin spice....not funky underwear.
3. A clean car washed with rain water.
4. Little boys who leave rocks by the window to remind me that I truly have a reason to be happy...ALWAYS :)
