Lazy Much?

Week three...unemployment...laziness has set in. Not by choice, mind you, but because...well...there just isn't much to do. Especially when it is raining all the daggone time!

Today I got up and got Michael ready for school. Once he and Frank were out the door, I literally crawled back into bed and slept for another THREE HOURS!!! How much of a slug am I? The answer? A HUGE ONE! I finally got mobile and dragged myself over to the computer to check e-mails and whatnot and eventually had some lunch and somewhere around 1:30 made it to the shower. Even that didn't quite revive me.

At around 3:30 we left the house and went to the library, grabbed about a half dozen books to read - I LOVE to read - and then headed over to the Super Target just to browse. This was not a good thing. I needed hair spray and blush and somehow ended up looking at clothes and purses and hats and well...I bought myself a hat. I have always wanted a cool, straw hat. Always. I don't know why but I just have. So I found one that I liked, it looked good on me, I used the logic of how I was going to NEED a hat while down in Florida because I am so fair-skinned and it will be July and so really, I have to protect myself and therefore NEED the hat! So I was pretty happy with myself and when we were checking out and I showed it to the boys, they mocked me! Totally, loudly, mocked me! Nick was like "Hey, Taylor Swift!" Now, in his 17 year-old mind, he is insulting me. But what my somewhat cluttered 40-year old brain heard was "Hey, mom looks like some hot, blonde, 19-year old!" There are worse things I could look like, right?

You know, had he said "Hey, Troll!" or maybe "Hey, Uggo", I would have been offended. I mean, I'm not a FAN of Taylor Swift, but she's adorable! So HA! my son, you thought you were insulting me but all you've managed to do it boost my ego!

And yet still all I want to do is take a nap!

I love this blog! You make me laugh:-D Sounds just like something one of my teenage sons would say, and heck no, I wouldn't be insulted by that comment either!

You will have to post a pic of you in your cute hat:)

Take care

Hello there!! I haven't had much time to blog, but today, now, I am trying to catch up on what everyone else has been doing this week. Of course, I check your blog first thing, because I've been dying to know how the unemployment situation is going. I totally understand the "fuzzy, tired-brain" syndrome...just ride it out, and pretty soon, your brain will clear up!

I agree with Angel..I wanna see a pic of you in your "Hot" Taylor-hat! :)
