Two Tasks

How hard can it be, I ask? I had two things to do before I put the boys down for a nap. I gathered my keys and the trash and out the door I went, hurrying so that Boo wouldn't be climbing on the baker's rack before I came back inside. Or maybe calling China on my cell phone. Run outside, do the jobs, come back in. Quick.

I put the dirty diaper in the mailbox.

Emily said...

NO WAY. That's worthy of a blog picture. How could you deny us?

MaryLu said...

Well, Emily, that would require that I go back inside and get the camera and further embarrass myself in front of our NEIGHBORHOOD mailbox, all the while with the Water Department guys sitting in the truck across the street. Believe me, it was embarrassing enough to have to go back and unlock the mail door and dispose of the little bundle in the proper receptacle.

Hee hee! "Mommy brain" strikes anytime, anywhere! :)
I am sure your mail carrier is just glad you realized your mistake before he or she discovered it!
Oh, and we are not Star Wars snobs. :) We love Star Trek, too. There is a clipping of Zachary Q. from the new movie coming out presently residing on my fridge. I have to look at Spock daily. My husband is super excited! :) Me personally, I'm a Generations and Voyager girl. :) Oh, my. Did I just type all of that on your comment page? So sorry. :)
Have a great day!
:) K

Love it! Can't say I have done that yet, but I have found the phone in the fridge! :-)
As far as homeschooling - I am only doing it this semester and it's only kindergarten so it's about an hour a day. I just couldn't bear to put my 5 year old in 3 different kindergartens. I sent her to public school til Christmas break in NJ but after we moved to SC (and knowing we would be headed to NY in March), I opted to finish the year at home.
