Finally Friday!

*Today is the last day of Vacation Bible School hell.  I don't mean to be sacrilegious, I did outside games & that's how hot it was! 5 days with 100 something children? If it wasn't for the Xanax, I might be spending eternity in that kind of heat. 

*Yesterday was my 2 year Blogiversary!  Retro didn't get me anything for that one either.  You can read my very 1st post HERE. It seems longer than 2 years. I have learned so many things & met some fabulous people! Thank you, Jana, for introducing me to this wonderful world.

*I found a recipe for Bread-in-a-Bag in the newspaper, I thought I'd make it with Sass.  What do you think the chances are I'll screw it up?

*Is it sad that sometimes I get in the Preppy Redneck blow-up pool by myself? I mean, it's Georgia, in the summer with a heat index of 105. Sometimes A/C just ain't enough.

Semi-Slacker Swimming Pool


*Speaking of "the pool", why is it that when I want to lay out be outside, the children want to trash my house be inside. And when I want to be on the computer inside, they want to trash my yard be outside.

*I was very excited yesterday when the weatherman friended me on Facebook.  Apparently, I need to get out more.

*On his page, he had of picture of himself with Drivin' n' Cryin' & that reminded me of the time, back in the day, when several of my friends & I were watching them perform at a local club/bar & the lead singer, Kevn Kinney kept passing out on stage. while performing. Now that's a serious buzz.

*There's a commercial about ovarian cancer in which Kelly Ripa refers to Kim Kardashian as her friend.  Now do you think they are really friends or just like the "friends" I have on FB?

*I want to say thanks to everybody that voted for me in the NOT Mom of the Year contest.  It really was just an honor to be nominated. 

*Just so you know, I am currently experiencing a slight fixation with Chelsea Handler. Oh how I wish she was a Mommy Blogger.  Her snarkastic humor really inspires me.  Gift ideas for the Semi-Slacker Mom (it is my blogiversary after all): any of Chelsea's books.  That's going to be my back-to-school reading.  I don't know how anybody does "summer reading" with all these children around.

Mommy's Idea

*I'm #7 on Friday Follow's Blog Hop!  You should join in the fun!

I'm pretty sure Kelly and Kim are "celebrity friends", the kind that air kiss.

KT said...

Ohh, I have a picture of Chelsea with my 6 year old! I've seen her in person twice and read all of the books. I'd do her! If you want, email me your address and I will send you my Chelsea books.

Oh my kids do the same thing! I mean they trash pretty much everywhere they walk :( Joining in on Friday Follow this week...but I already follow you :)

Sorta Southern Single Mom said...

Girl, it is HOT down here! We are at VBS this week too, but the joy of missing it at your own church and subsequently allowing your children to go with a friend at THEIR church is that I've had two hours to myself every night this week! I'm liking this racket!

Laura said...

I'm shaking my head. WHAT were you thinking for OUTSIDE activities for VBS?? One too many purple-panty-pull-downs, I think.

I see the duct tape is working on the ol' redneck pool!

Have a fun weekend!

Di said...

I'm in Florida and my poor hubbie has been working outside in this heat. He is a grumpy bear when he gets home! I meanwhile sit in my office with a space heater. (New Follower from FF)

FYI I am about to fill up my "Party Pool" in a few minutes :) there's no escaping this heat in Memphis either!
PS-Chelsea is my hero.

Caution Flag said...

We were out of town for VBS this year and I'll admit to being slightly giddy about it.

I'm so happy your weatherman is your FB friend !!! I have such a crush on our weatherman, and wonder what that says about me.

I am your newest follower!

Dee Crowe said...

Found you through Friday Follow and I love your blog---and of course now following it. Kim and Kelly are probably those friends who are paid to be friends and secretly hope each other's hair will fall out...hmmmm....

Have a great weekend!

Steven Anthony said...

chelsea ROCKS! and as someone who did vbs for many yrs, it is hell...hot weather or not, lol

brainella said...

I have that same pool in my back yard. And I get into it by myself sometimes... :)

I'm not familiar with Chelsea Handler. Who is she? And should I already know that?

Jessica said...

It's not sad that you get in the pool... it's just redneck ;-) LOL

Wait... are you complaining about getting alone time away from your kids? Girl!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

I love Chelsea Handler too. She rocks.

Jennifer said...

I want to know how you keep the redneck pool clean.

Mama's Viewfinder said...

My kids do the same things. Love the Redneck Pool. LOL

Found you on Follow Friday. Love the blog.

Diapers and Divas said...

Chelsea's my girl...love her! Yeah that's right...we're "friends".

WeeMasonMan's Mom said...

Here from FF! Happy Blogiversary! You know what's sadder than spending time alone in your green blow up pool? That I'm jealous and want one too!

Following you now. (Huh, that sounds kind of creepy....) Have a great weekend!

HeartsMakeFamilies said...

LOL I remember when I used to have a pool like that.

I'm not quite sure how I'm not already following you - but when I checked after you popped up at Friday-Follow I was like, huh, I'm not. Anyway, now I am. :) Stay cool!

Sarah Wyland said...

I'm all about getting in the blow up pool by myself. Tennessee is hot, man! Today I actually took it a step further and busted out the sprinkler while laying out. My vain desire to have a tan beat out the sensible part of my brain telling me it was 100 degrees and too hot to do anything except sit inside with a glass of ice tea. The things we do for beauty. :)

I am Harriet said...

Thankyouverymuch. xoxo

I'm coming up on my 2yr blogiversary, too. Amazing, isn't it?

So do your kids start school the first week of August too? My niece and nephew live in GA and they start Aug. 5. NUTS!

twifanheather said...

Hi! Congrats on being #7 on Friday Follow's Blog Hop! I'm your newest follower! =)

Helene said...

Yeah I could hardly see Kelly Ripa and Kim Kardashian being lunch buddies!!

I've gotten in our pool too when it's been super hot...and that's after the kids have been in it. So you know I have to be desperately hot since they've probably peed in it.

Sandra said...

I read so I won't have to talk to my kids.
Congrats on the two year bloggaversary. I'd buy you something but I'm recovery from surgery, and I'm still awaiting my own Get Well gifts...how do you feel about re-gifting...maybe I can send a box of chocolates your way!
