Bingeing

It's been the binge weekend.

We did binge yardwork. We live on a fully sodded and landscaped acre and got rid of our lawn service in January. (I posted how Ringo has run into our back screened porch. We got found out before it was fixed... so my husband hired someone KNOWING that Ringo and I would not get it right and knowing he didn't have the time to do it. Sheesh. No faith... anyway, the doors were all broken and the kid that fixed it needed work and in the end, he knew what he was doing and I didn't, and the whole thing got fixed including doors for less than we paid a month for lawn service... so it was worth it.)

So Ringo cut the lawn, my husband edged, the boys and I replanted my garden (Ringo insisted on being point man for replanting my garden "MOM. Listen to me. YOU will KILL it." Nice.), I transplanted my Hydrangea assuring that it will now die, we raked, and moved stuff to the front for pick up. It was a full day's lawn work and it looks wonderful.

There was binge laundry where I washed 10 loads and the boys folded them.

There was binge bathroom cleaning, where I cleaned the bathrooms while they were all outside doing yardwork.

And binge organizing as we try to prepare for this week.

I had a girlfriend once that told me that she and her husband had binge $ex. I'm still trying to figure out how in the world they did that. She said they'd go weeks and weeks without it due to lack of time, and then one weekend, that is ALL they would do.

How in the heck do you do that with kids? Really? Obviously you have to ship the kids off somewhere because what do you do, hide in closets, lock bathroom doors, and continually throw them outside? How stressful would that be?

Anyway, today you get binge blogging, as I try to get in as much as possible as I'm not sure what this week has in store, but considering I'm now full time (or thereabouts) and my husband is out of town this week, it's going to be a tight week for blogging.

Hopefully things will seem funny... with that much stress it's a toss up. Either everything is REALLY funny... or there is NOTHING that is funny...

'Twill be interesting.

I have one more post to put up... binge blogging. Three posts in a day. Sheesh.

I think I like this whole being known to the software thing.

After 5 years of no contact I was in touch with one of my cousins who accused my mom of having a garden. I instantly denied that and said she and my dad maintain a squirrel playground.
