Saturday Night Rambling

Ten Barbie dolls and a few Disney princes are watching me as I type. This is going to be one of those improv posts where I stop typing and look off into the distance to get some inspiration. The Barbie chorus line that my daughter set up is all I have to work with this evening. I guess a poetry quickfire is not in the cards for this post. My husband's consistent snoring is not being drowned out by the air conditioner. I'm feeling a little lonely, so I guess I'll chat with you and share some Kelly randomness.
  • Back to the Barbies. My daughter has now decided that the Barbies like to take possession of my couch throughout the day. She lines them up in a specific way and guards them vigilantly when the "brothers" dare to go within 10 feet of the dolls. You would think that my skinny Barbie audience would deter me from eating that last piece of cake.

  • I know that I owe you a post about my latest hair salon experience. I want to post a picture or two, but my hair is not cooperating. I hope that this curly top mad professor look does not become a regular thing. The heat is not helping me in this department.

  • I told my daughter that I would like to take her to the museum. She said, "What's that place?" I told her about the paintings and sculptures. She said, "Mommy, our walls are full of paintings. Why don't you start your own museum?" I hate an empty wall. You should see how fast I put up a print or painting when I have a few extra dollars.

  • Do some of you remember when I posted about my yoga tape of an instructor named Mr. Finger? (I'll pause as you giggle.) My oldest son put the tape in the VCR (yes, I still have one of those ancient gadgets.) and preceded to have a laugh party with his brothers as Mr. Finger got into some tricky poses. I really need to make sure that I do this tape without the boys around. Their laughing will not help me stay all yoga serious.

  • Am I rambling too much? It's funny how I find blogging often to be my most satisfying "conversation" of the day. Is that sad? LOL.

  • I'm starting to think that my kids have made up a schedule entitled, "How to Make Mom Lose It Within 10 Minutes." There are days when it seems like they take shifts to drive me crazy. I'll have a bit of trouble with one kid, and then after it is somewhat resolved, I find that the next one starts up. Usually, this happens around my lunchtime. I just look up and say something like, "Can't Mom just eat her sandwich in peace for 2 minutes?"

  • Should I move away from the pink template? I don't feel so pink anymore. My problem is that my daughter has given this template her stamp of approval. When I'm blogging, I don't want her over my shoulder saying, "Mom, where's the pink? I hate the new color. Mom stop blogging." I think I just convinced myself to stay pink.

  • As my husband is snoring away, I'm thinking to myself, "Wonder if Angelina is listening to Brad snore right now too? If he does, is there such a thing as a sexy snorer?"

  • My seven year old has said, "I'm bored" around 10 times a day over the past 2 days. If he keeps it up, I think I'm going to encourage him to turn it into a rap song or something. At least, it would be more entertaining.
Time to carry two sleeping kids off to bed. Well, I actually mean "walk" two zombie kids off to bed. My carrying days are over. My back wouldn't forgive me if I started that again.

Thanks for listening as always. See you soon!

A sexy snore? Are you kidding me? There's definitely no such thing :)

And I do want a Barbie quickfire post. I think that could have been a ton of fun ;)

Life with kids, right? Kelly, I'm sure you are a wonderful Mom! It's never as easy as Leave it to Beaver, although it took me years to realize it.
Ten Barbies lined up, and all pink on top of that? Your blog is YOU, let's see who you REALLY are!!!! Go for it Mamma!!!!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Having children one has to put up with their passion for certain toys, it's all part and parcel of being a mum.
I enjoyed reading your post.

Thanks for stopping by and read my poems and commenting. much appreciated.

Have a peaceful Sunday.
Yvonne.

Whilst appreciating the pitfalls of motherhood I have to say how much I loved this post. You were definitely inspired by those dolls. And the snoring! Have a wonderful Sunday and thanks for giving me the giggles.

This is supposed to be YOUR space ... Jillian will have to get over it if you want to change your blog! (OF course, this is easy for me to say ... I don't have to actually face the little girl who guards Barbies with the zeal of a prison guard to answer to.) : 0

G said...

My daughter used to do the same thing with her Beanie Babies.

Now I got that "Barbie Girl" song playing in my head.

septembermom said...

Well, as you can see my blog is no longer pink :) It will be interesting to see what my little blog designer has to say when she sees it. Maybe I'll tell her that it matches my sunflower :)

Joanne said...

I second Michelle's comment, a Barbie quickfire would've been fun. Bring it on!

Valerie said...

I like it. Good luck with your blog designer.

I like the tan color...the pink was rather like an ice cream parlor. Either way, it's all about the content not the glitz!

Creativity!! said...

:) :)

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

I find blogging often to be my most satisfying "conversation" of the day...me too! not sad at all, just the truth! There aren't any other intelligent women in my house so...

Hyacynth said...

Llol! A sexy snorer? Well, that'd be my husband then bc he snores with the best of them.
Also, I see orange. I like the orange. And I do, admittedly, want to see hair pictures. :)

Wendy said...

loved hearing what you are up to these days.

Randi said...

I love your Kelly randomness! Random thoughts keep me laughing all the way through.

Color your blog whatever shade you like, as long as you don't take down the paintings. :)

I am among your followers now anxiously awaiting the Barbie quickfire. I KNOW you can do it.

Re: sexy snorers. Here's been my thought on snoring ever since I was a young adult and read Dear Abby. She once had a reader who said she hated the sound of her husband's loud snoring to the point where she would sleep on the couch or get angry at him. Then he died and she told Abby that she would do anything for one more night of loud snoring. So I say, "Cuddle up, ladies and enjoy the earthquake." Besides, I snore and I am positive I am d*mn sexy when I do it.

Here's a cool idea for your bored child:

Analisa said...

Analisa said...

Susan Fobes said...

Okay, Mr. Finger? Man, the guy has got to change his name or no one will take him and his poses seriously. LOL!

Maybe Jillian needs her own blog to decorate - there would be plenty of room for pink, pink, and more pink. Although, probably should wait a few years, huh? Maybe a guest post?!?

Still looking forward to the salon story.

Sabrina said...

You're hilarious!!!

Becca said...

"A sexy snorer" BAHAHA!!! I don't care if it is Brad Pitt. It is just NOT possible!

Jillian cracks me up with her Barbies, pink, and all things girlie! I hope Aubrey is just like that!!

I hope those kiddos ease up on you some otherwise it is going to be one LONG summer break!!! HUGS!

Ken Devine said...

Hi Kelly
Isn't it a good job women don't snore too :)

SwedishJenn said...

I wonder if I'm a sexy snorer. According to my hubby, there ain't nuthin' sexy about it..ha! Love your random posts. Watch those Barbie Dolls :-). xo

Owning the Words said...

My poor dearest Kelly! As a mom, I can relate to your post and staring dolls scare me, always have for some reason. Btw, there is absolutely no sexiness in a snoring man I don't care how hot he is. Things will get better :)

Teri said...

I can assure you that there is NO such thing as a sexy snorer. Especially when you are sitting up for a few hours because your sleep was interrupted at just the right/wrong moment and you now cannot go back to sleep. Ugh.

I gotta see your hair.

Angela said...

Kelly, I can't say enough about how much I love your randomness. I'm right there with you some days with the kids driving me crazy. But, I guess such is life with a house full of boys. Oh, and Mr. Finger? Hilarious. LMBO! Love you, girl! :)

Halleelujah Mommy said...

Enjoyed reading, thanks!

Nature Lover said...

Enjoyed!!!!!

Gerri said...

Hahaha! And by the way, no snore is sexy...lol

He & Me + 3 said...

Mr. Finger! Thanks for the pause cause I had to laugh. No there is no sexy snore...not even from Brad Pitt.
I can't carry mine to bed anymore either. It is a sad day...or night whichever you prefer :)

Don said...

I like this: It's funny how I find blogging often to be my most satisfying "conversation" of the day. Is that sad?"

No, it's not sad. Look at all the feed back you got: all that validation. What's not to like?

Sexy snoring? Yes.

I love the soft snore of my wife. To me it assures me of her presence, her rest, her health. It's the white noise of a good nigh. (Hmmm... we also have twin beds, so the extra 5 feet may add something to the ambiance?) Shhh...
