What a Mother!

Hello Mother Nature over there in Iceland! Can't believe that almost all of the air space over Europe is closed. Too freaking weird. I can close my eyes and think about what I would be doing if I was stuck on a layover there. I think there are airline crews just hanging out, spending money and thinking "damn my Husband is pissed because my three day trip is now a day trip." Glad I'm not flying now cause it just wouldn't be right leaving the husb for a mini unplanned vacation! Yeah right.

So the Husb and I are actually headed to Germany in May for a wedding. It'll be the Husbs first time to fly over the pond. Can you believe I've been a flight attendant for 16 years and the man has never been to Europe. We are a sad lot. Anywho, sister has volunteered to babysit T and Poppy. She'll then have 5 kids for the week. EEEEKKKK...pull my hair out...give me!!!! Wow, what a wonderful sister I have. I know pay back will be hell. Hell I tell you! I think she'll be fine. Treats my boys like her own!

Husb and I should have a great time..unless that damn volcano acts up again. I'm suppose to be the one that figures how we get there, what city we fly thru, etc. The only request I got was he wants to be in business class. I get that! I resemble that! Should be interesting.

I have got to get things together. I've neglected my blog, my house, the fish tank, my laundry. Dang, the laundry hasn't truly been done in almost three weeks. My sister kept the baby a few weeks ago and felt really sorry for him when she couldn't find any clothes to change him into after his diaper leaked. I hated to tell her that his clothes were all in the dryer. Every morning I'd just go dig thru them til I found something to dress him in. He did get some awesome outfits for his birthday though! hehe! I even went shopping yesterday to get a few pair of shorts for T. My excuse is he's so tall all his shorts are looking like 70's short shorts. So not attractive, even on skinny 5 year old!

The floors of my house are totally gross too. Come on Niki, get it together!!!! Sheesh! The amount of dried grass that comes in is freaking amazing. I should keep in a nice pile and eventually I could craft myself a bale of hay. No kidding.

The baby's first birthday was last Wednesday. Dang he's a cute 1 year old. However with T being 5 1/2 I'd forgotten all the things that babies do that are not always so cute. For example, climbing INTO the dishwasher while I'm trying to unload/load it. Hey, watch out for those knifes please. What about standing at the sink and having your pant legs pulled on...hard. HELLO, you so don't want to see Mommy's panties. When I do actually do laundry, the whole lets throw the folded clothes on the floor gets a bit tiresome. All that being said, dang he's cute. How can you get mad at a sweet angel face? I ask him if Mommy can have kisses and he shakes his head no, no, no! Bad boy!

I guess I better keep this brief, the dryer is beeping. Yes, no underware is not always sexy and 5 year olds really shouldn't go commando.

How many painters...

does it take it fix a crappy sheet rock job? We have a small master bath. We remodeled it. We had a light box taken out and a regular light fixture placed over the mirror. The sheet rock dudes didn't get some of the edges of the wall straight. They had to come back. We have a small master bath...I said that right? At this moment, four guys just walked thru my house tracking in mud, dead grass and wet fix about a foot section of the edge of a wall. One just went into our other bathroom. He did that the day before yesterday too. Don't come to my house for 20 minutes and use the bathroom. It grosses me out. Don't bring four guys in my house for something one person could do. Don't talk loudly in the hallway by my sleeping baby's door. So, one guy is actually fixing the problem, one guy is using my bathroom and the other two are going in and out (dragging more crap onto my floor) to get sandpaper. Then the three stand in my bedroom watching #1 finish the job. We were going to have the other bathroom tub retiled. I think we'll wait, cause as you can see, I'm done.
