Un stinky smell and une question

I have a stinky smell in my house.  Lullibell says it smells something like the dead squirrel on the playground when she was in second grade.  She went on to describe the smell as kind of a sicky sweet smell…Nice, right?  The weird thing about it is that it is only in the closet where I keep the sheets-the hallway linen closet.  So far it only affects the closet, not the laundry itself but I think  it might be pressing that I clean out the closet and take out everything until I can put some bleach and baking soda in there–hopefully something will absorb the smell!

BADBADBAD!!!

On a different note-I am able to get a new phone next week.  I thought I wanted a droid but I am not sure now.  I mean an iPhone would be cool.  Even a new blackberry.  I just don’t know.  The new blackberry would be the easiest transition because that is what I have now…but the apps for the iPhone and droid are very tempting.

Anybody have any thoughts on the sitch?

One more thing-Bubba has his first football scrimmage today.  The Mites scrimmaged the Mighty Mites a little bit last night but this is his first time against a real opponent…EXCITING!!!  GO BULLDOGS!!!

How you like your salsa? HOT HOT HOT

Momma and I got back to my house last night.  We hit the ground running this morning!

Mom made 3 quarts and 2 pints of salsa!  And I continued with my schedule of cleaning to be a better house keeper.  Laundry is about to get the better of me! I still think they are trying to wear every stitch of clothing they own!  PLUS, I got out my fix it and forget it cookbook and made saucy porkchops.  We’ll have those with some of daddy’s corn for dinner after football practice tonight.  Just gotta wiat for it to get shady on the backporch so we can shuck it!

Silent Sunday

I got a plan

I’m gonna take the kids to Busch Gardens today.  Even though it’s supposed to be hot.  And I am supposed to be super-hydrating Bubba.  Because it is supposed to be super hot today.  And he will probably be practicing in full gear today.  Which will probably get me in trouble.

But, you see, I have this other monster.  This girl monster.  She really likes water.  She loves water.  And not just for drinking or swimming.  She likes to be splashed, sprayed, sprinkled or otherwise inundated.  The look of joy on the child’s face when getting soaked is beyond comparison.

So I will take them to Busch Gardens, where we will stay only long enough to ride three water rides and possibly a roller coaster…just to dry off!

Fall…does it really rhyme with football?

I need STRUCTURE!!!

Today is my third day posting on my blog again! “YAY ME!!!”

It is also day 2 of week two in my attempt to be a better housekeeper.  And it started off with a bang…or maybe a wretch…Claude the Cat barfed twice on my light colored carpet in my bedroom…sigh.

Claude is a big fat beautiful fur ball that eats constantly.  If his bowl, and thus his belly get empty for a period of more than, say, 4 hours he throws up somewhere in the house-this house that has more than half hard wood or vinyl flooring-usually on the carpet.  It’s a darn good thing the boy monster loves him because if he didn’t we might have a problem!

Today on the Momma’s Super Plan for Cleaning is the day to day necessities (wiping down the kitchen) as well as dusting and vaccuuming, and starting the laundry.  I say starting the laundry because I believe my family tried to wear ever stitch of clothing they own this week!

Yay-Happy ending!

I have raised a Phoebe.  I love Lullibell dearly and one of  her most endearing qualities is her LOVE of happy endings.  She only wants to watch movies with happy endings, read books with happy endings.  Everything must end justly with all of the “good” characters living happily ever after. Much like Phoebe on Friends-remember how she thought Ol’Yeller had a happy ending…and Bambi…I wish life was all happy endings.

Over the weekend I watched a movie I wanted to tell you guys about.  If you haven’t seen Julie and Julia you really should. Funny, sweet and a relatively happy ending…I just wish I could cook like Julie-she was brave enough to try all of the recipes in the book. I don’t think I could pay my family to eat some of the things in that cookbook!  And the things you learn about Julia Chiles-I really had no idea what a saucy, naughty thing she was!
