What Day Is It, What I Know For Sure (this week) & #iPPP

I'm confused, I don't know what day it is.  No, it's not all the drinking I've done lately.  It's just been a wacky week that started with the kids having a winter break from school on Monday and Tuesday, a sick kid home from school the other days, a husband out of town-- which can all lead to I-don't-know-what-day-it-is-itis.  Symptoms include confusion, exhaustion, mild irritability and anxiety, finding ridiculous things funnier than normal, losing car keys, craving comfort food.  I know it sounds a lot like PMS, it's very similar.  

My kids have been a little out of whack too.  Not in a bad way.  They've actually been getting along better than normal.  (That didn't help with my confusion symptom.)  

My little boys have hung out all week.

They even ended up sleeping together like a couple of puppies.

I really don't know much this week except that I think it's almost the weekend and that means nothing because I'm a mom and Saturday is just another day, duh.  But I am extremely grateful for cute puppy/children that get along on long winter days inside, that I truly know for sure (this week).

Here's what else I know for sure (this week):

  • Spontaneous moments of getting along need to be photographed and documented.  Here are Lucy and JT just hanging out playing the iPad. I usually hate electronics, but if the iPad can make this happen more often, I think I love it.
  • Haters are gonna hate, but I love Beyonce.  And I love her more after watching her documentary on HBO.  I was moved.  Yup.

  • Fake mustaches from the dollar store are priceless.  We enjoyed the heck out of wearing these all week.  Lucy even wore one to school for fun.

  • I'm watching the Oscars on Sunday night (and live Tweeting, come play @AngelaYBlood).  I love movies, movie making, story telling, all of it.  My fingers are crossed that the speeches will be good and the host will be funny.

Yeah, there's an app for that.  An Oscar App, I'm not kidding.  Check it out. 

  • Sometimes the shows my tweens like are funny, sometimes.  The older my kids get, I am finding their choice in TV shows more obnoxious.  (I miss Playhouse Disney, which is now Disney Junior, which Wade still loves.)  The other day Lucy and Peyton called me into the living room to watch a show on Cartoon Network and I laughed, it was pretty funny.  Even if they made the mom look totally dorky in the video.

  • The Harlem Shake is overdone and let's face it, weird.  You know the Harlem Shake right?  The crazy video EVERYONE was making the last couple weeks on YouTube.  To be totally honest, the only reason I didn't make one is because my family refused to do it with me. Whomp. Whomp.  Here's my all-time favorite version.

  • Join the Instagram party and come follow me.  I finally figured out how to tag people.

  1. I know for sure that I have don't-know'what-day-it-is-itis as well, and yes, I have ALL the symptoms. My kids were out Monday, of course, sick Tuesday, at school on Wednesday, and have had snows days yesterday and today. I think that makes it Friday?

    I've heard a lot about the Harlem Shake and have never seen it. Every time I hear about it, someone is saying how overdone it is. Which means I am WAY BEHIND.

    Those pictures of your boys are so sweet! And Lucy. Well, Lucy's a little rock star. I love her.
