Like sands through the hourglass...

People, time is running out! I love you people - friends of mine in Chicago - but I don't have time to see all of you individually anymore. We have to pack! do you hear me? We HAVE TO PACK! Things are getting desperate around here. We have to take the dog in to get some shots. Will has to take the Praxis and apply to UNLV and apply for financial aid. ARGHH. In addition to Maya, we're watching another little guy every day, and babies don't like to pack! Scratch that. Babies LOVE packing tape, and the crinkly crunching of newspaper around SHARP and DEADLY if dropped martini glasses, but Mamas and Dadas don't like babies to pack!
Apparently, babies don't like to take naps anymore, because as I write this, Maya awakes after 23 minutes of sleeping. More later!

Like sands through the hourglass...

Oh I know all too well what you're going through. All too well.

Stay strong, separated-at-birth sistah!

Just tape the little kids together for a little while and speed pack!

Or no...maybe that's not such a good idea...


:D

Just so you know, I DON'T WATCH SOAPS. When I got my hair done yesterday, chickie had her stories on, so I was forced and it sucked.

I do, however, celebrate Shakespeare's birthday, also known as the anniversary of my first date with mister mrtl.

My littles like to UNpack. Yeppers, you put it in a box and put it within their reach, and they'll knock each other over to get to whatever the hell is inside that box!!

Of course, if you're packing up their toys and happen to put them in the same room with the littles, you're just asking for trouble... BUT, if you need to pack somewhere else in the house, pack up a few of their toys in a box you don't need and "accidentally" put it within their reach, then go and speed pack in the other room or something. This works better than taping them together... they get SO bent out of shape when you do that...

Uh... not that *I* would know...

Good Luck Mamaramma!!

I actually thought of doing that once when they were fighting with each other.

LOL
