Friday Ramblings

1.  I think Denise and I were having the same kind of day yesterday.  (Please note if you're new to Denise's blog...Denise is always positive and encouraging in her posts.  And, she loves and enjoys her boys tremendously and it shows!  She gave a rare peek today into some of the more frustrating moments.)

My day yesterday was one where I couldn't take one more moment of bickering, yelling, name calling, teasing, complaining.  I was done.  And, by the time my husband came home for dinner the stress was through the roof.  As a matter of fact, he had planned to work on our van last night after dinner, but he quickly realized it might be better for everyone if Daddy stayed home. 

After dinner I went into the computer room & shut the door so that Mommy could have 5 minutes alone.  Well, after about 10 minutes of various children and a husband walking in and out, it looked like everyone was finally settled watching 'Swamp People'.  And, my 5 minutes was going to begin. 

But, about 45 seconds into my 'alone' time I heard it.  Small feet walking into the kitchen.  Coughing.  Gagging.  Oh no!  Is that the sound of someone getting sick to their stomach?  Yup.  It sure was. Sigh.  Mommy was back on duty.

2.  Hey I have a question for you guys.  I love the new 'reply' option that we have in the comments section now with Blogger.  But, I'm wondering if you get a notification when I reply to your comments.  I know I get an email with my reply, but I'm curious if you do.

3.  We got a new filing cabinet to replace our cheapy, coming apart Staples filing cabinet.  We found a post on Craigslist for the heavy duty metal, 4 drawer filing cabinets for $20 a piece.  OR if someone took them ALL (it was a company changing over to electronic files & they had about 20 filing cabinets) you could have them for $10 a piece. 

My husband bought them all.

He figured he could sell them for $20 a piece & make a little profit.  I was dubious.  But, as it turns out, he was right.  Folks from his work snatched them up in the first couple days of him picking them up.....which is good because we wouldn't have had anywhere to store them!

So, the last several days I've been working on transferring files from our old cabinet to the new one, reorganizing & sifting through un-needed paperwork as I went.  Quite the job!  But, now that I'm finished I feel great!

4.  Today looks like it's gonna be a good day!  I hope you all have a fabulous Friday & a wonderful weekend!


  1. I so need a file cabinet.
    I somehow feel this will help with my messy desk.
    My kids have been bickering a whole lot lately.
    The husband told them that he will not take them for an anticipated trip to Florida if they continue to fight like they are because he wont be able to handle the car ride with them.
    He thinks this has done the trick.
    I am dubious!

  2. I love that your husband made a profit like that! It's almost like storage wars but better as you knew exactly what you were getting.

    I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!!!!

  3. Now that Swamp People is on we are sure to get a regular once a week break. :)
