Chaos In The House

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Truthfully, I sat down to write a most eloquent diatribe on how I am once again suffering through the 2nd Day Sugar Withdrawal Headache, because of my huge binge on cookies on Sunday. I was going to say something really well-worded and inspirational about how staying healthy is worth it and how giving in and bingeing just means I have to go through this feeling of YUCK all over again. And then I was going to say something about the entire reason for my health journey being so I don't have to feel terrible like this...etc etc.

But, instead, the moment I sat down, chaos ensued in our house. My mother-in-law, who has been gone for two weeks got home. The girls (6 and 9) came home from swimming at the YMCA with their friend, who had so sweetly gifted them with a bunch of cute toys and candy. My 4 yr old boy spied the Ring Pop in my 9 yr old's bag and demanded it. She said "no" of course...and he, being totally exhausted and ready for bed, threw the mother of all tantrums and screamed his lungs out. At this very moment, my 6 yr old came to me and asked me to "fix" her hair. You see, she tried to put her gum behind her ear like Violet Beauregard from Willy Wonka. Are you picturing this scene???

It is at precisely this point my husband decided to DO DISHES. WTH???? The whole entire world was falling apart and everyone was screaming and it was just...uggghhh.

Anyway, yay....inspiring words...healthy journey...yippee...whatever. I just want 3 points for this blog. Let's be honest.

    As a child, I frequently slept w/ gum. Sometimes, the gum migrated to my long hair. If only we'd known - Peanut Butter will take it out. I actually never tried it on hair (and obviously, if you have peanut allergies you can't do this), but i did try it on my dog - she stepped in hot sticky gum and was a mess. She loved the PB approach! (WD-40 works as well, but who wants that on their dog or in their hair!)

As for the whole thing - loved it! It is amazing how things just all manage to hit at once!

A soothing cup of tea, and girl talk.
All better now?

Girl, I hear you! There are so many times I have something in mind I want to say and blog about and just when I sit down to do it that is EXACTLY the time my almost 5 year old son or hubby need me. Ugh!!!

There should be extra points for blogs with a sense of humor!!
