So Happy It's Thursday

I came across this blog idea and decided to run with it since I am happy it's Thursday.  Reason 1 is Burn Notice which has just started up  again and is really getting good.  Reason 2 is I'm packing for my first ever night away from my kids.  I really should be sadder about this but I'm not.  and Finally I'm going to be in Atlantic City tomorrow!  I've never been so can't wait!  Aren't those good reasons?

Pay absolutely no attention to the fact that it is no longer Thursday.  I WAS happy it was Thursday and gonna be crazy happy on Friday too.  That's the plan!

And then I wrote a blog post...

I know.  You're shocked, right.  Well usually, my job and three kids leave me strapped for imagination and time to sit down and actually write a blog post.  This week the boys are at Bible school.  (doing a little dance for joy)  OK.  and AnonyMOMous begged.  Cause that's what it takes.  begging.  and cash prizes.  I am very susceptible to bribery.  Anyway.  She wrote a very excellent blog post on the contents of her purse and challenged the blogger community to give up theirs..  Well here goes nothing.  Cause I got nothing in it.  I kid. 

Well I, in my infinite wisdom have decided that I do not like lugging around multiple bags and since I have to carry the diaper bag around and the baby (she insists on eating and pooping on a regular basis)  I just stick my stuff in the diaper bag.  Of course I'm not totally uncool, my diaperbag is BabyPhat afterall.
And a must have for all diaperbags no matter how glamorous... matching changing pad, diapers and wipes

A change of clothes and baby accessories
Reading material, because you never know when you might get a moment to read.

Batteries, I don't know why, don't ask, chapstick, lipstick, pictures, band-aids, spare change, crayons and that may or may not be some bills I was supposed to mail last week.  Sorry PSE&G. 

Then the usual stuff, wallet, name badge from work, my phone, my camera, keys, gum,

And after that, you know what's left?  8346294 receipts from everything from the supermarket to the gas station.  I'm not keeping them for a reason, they just get shoved in there until someone forces me to empty and show the contents to the world. 
So your welcome for that tour of everything I have to carry around on a daily basis.  And also for blogging.  If you think your bag is worse then mine prove it by linking up!

What I am up to..

Well you might be wondering what all I am doing that I can't manage to fit in a post here and there. Well besides taking care of the baby girl (who for some reason insists on waking up every three hours, just because...) and working part time, I am still trying to give my children the life they are used to. For instance Tuesday afternoons is piano lessons and Wednesday afternoons is Chess club. And don't even get me started on Saturdays. This Saturday I have Baseball at 8:45am, Soccer at 10am, and Swim lessons at 11:30. Luckily I took the day off because instead of going to work at 2pm, I have a mandatory church retreat for the seven year old. As usual, in order for my son to get his Holy Communion, I have to attend fifteen different scheduled events. (Frankly, I thought this was why I sent him to Catholic school, so they could handle this stuff between 8 and 2, but apparently not.) So think of me as you're enjoying your leisurely Saturday. I'll see you around if I survive...

For those that still care...

So here's the deal. My life has been one non stop hectic mess and I'm sure by now everyone has deleted me as not worth the space on their readers, e-mail etc etc. However, I do need to connect so guess what?! I joined Twitter!!! (Cassiewithkids)You can't see but I just patted myself on the back. HeeHeeHee. Anyway, I always had the blog posting to the twitter but I never checked the twitter itself but my new plan is to be able to update those that care via my handy dandy Blackberry. So I make no promises to sit down and write whole blog posts. As you can see I am terrible at it. Since my husbands is now working regularly again. (Thank you Lord Jesus!!) He isn't around to hog the computer and make snarky comments when I'm on instead of say, doing laundry. So I may. Anyway the purpose of this post is to ask if anyone's out there (echoing......) comment with your twitter handle and I can keep in touch when I'm not on here. More on my upside down crazy life later....

WTH is with me lately?!?

My kids being red blooded Americans did their patriotic duty and brought home a butt load of candy for Halloween. Now here's where I let you in on the dirty secret. I rarely let them eat candy. Okay on Halloween they had a couple of pieces and maybe two additional pieces since then but that's pretty much it. So what have I been doing with all this junk? I'll tell you. I've been eating it. I, who generally doesn't have a sweet tooth, and would rather have a beef patty than a chocolate bar, have been scarfing down the candy at regular intervals. I would excuse myself if say, I was having a craving for skittles or snickers and then went to find one. No, me?, I've been going in the kitchen and out of a utter laziness to make myself something eat a piece of candy in lieu of what I actually want. Seriously, I need help. So should I just take the entire bag of candy and chuck it or what? Do you ever find yourself eating things you don't really want?

My Bucket List

Okay so my sister sent me an article written by Jen Lancaster. If you haven't read anything by her, you're missing out cause she's amazing. Anyway she's thinking about if she should write a bucket list and reading what's on other people's bucket lists. Apparently, people have these visions of themselves going on African safaris, jumping out of airplanes, climbing tall mountains and other extremely hard, semi-suicidal things.

Personally, I'm with Jen, "not-dying" is pretty high up on my list. I'd like to live to see my grandchildren, which means I need to live at least thirty more years cause my daughter is only four months old. I'd also like to retire. Isn't that boring? I was talking to a co-worker who just got laid off her day job and pretty much she described my perfect day. All day in bed reading, get up to eat, pee and then...go back to bed. Yeah I'd like to live to see a couple of days like that. I'd also wouldn't mind being able to burn that mortgage. Sooo 29 years, eleven months and counting..... I guess I don't need a bucket list since I don't have any lofty goals for myself. Does that make me boring or just lazy???

To Blog or not to blog

Did you know that it's National Blog Posting Month? Well it is. I have it on good authority. Unfortunately I am a certified blog failure, since I can't organize any rhyme or reason to my posts. I have just come off a six day straight work week which especially sucks since although I got a lot of hours in, there were very few customers. Don't ask me why. Don't they know it is 50 days to Christmas? Someone should be shopping. Anyway since my garage is still full of boxes, my four month old still won't sleep through the night, the economy has dictated I must work myself into the ground, this is basically all you're gonna get for a blog post. Tune in for your next episode of the young (no wisecracks) and insanely busy.
