Call the Discovery Channel!

Call the Discovery Channel because in the last week I have discovered . . .

-57 unmated socks.  I have been using mating the unruly pile as a form of punishment for the kids.  Yes. They hate it.

-Ellerie using Paul's back massager in a very unorthodox and Sex in the City's Samantha-like fashion.  On the bright side, at least she did not resemble Linda Blair.

-the puppy chewing on my favorite pair of red sunglasses.  And no.  I do not care if I look like Sally Jessy Raphael.

-that my car smells like Easter eggs after I gave it a thorough cleaning with white vinegar and then proceeded to spill the entire gallon of the white vinegar in the trunk space.

-petrified dog poop in my storage room.  Yes.  I gagged.

-that Ellerie will cry at pre-school, but only when I pick her up because she does not want to go home.  Go figure.

-that I am looking forward to 2 hours a day with no kids for the first time in 10 years.  To fill this time, I have approximately 17 projects lined up that I am sure I will not complete including (but not limited to) painting the exterior of my home, installing granite in the bathroom, tiling the basement floor, and training for my second half marathon.  No.  I have not been smoking crystal meth.  I am serious.

So, Discovery Channel?

Don't you think that this could make a great reality show?

Any titles out there?

Don't forget to join me on twitter   @annieinsanity


  1. Oh I think these would all totally make a great show.

    I wanna watch.

  2. 2 hours all to yourself. I'm so far from that but also know it will be here before I know it!

  3. I would say that I would watch, but both my munchkins are in public school, and I need to get to my own list!

  4. Ahhhhh....so it's PAUL'S back massager, is it?

    Loved that story and all your discoveries.
    My smile for this Tuesday, for sure.

    (I may or may not also be smiling because my kids go back to school tomorrow morning...oh yeah.)

  5. I think your list of projects sounds totally realistic. I mean you are going to have TWO HOURS EVERY DAY right????


I love, love, love to read your comments!
