HELP! I Need A Girls Night Out!

My children are trying to hurt me. I believe they are trying to crush me from the inside. They're breaking my heart!!!!
**** Insert Elvis Costello's "Peace, Love & Understanding" ****
I don't know how homeschooling mother's do it all year!?! (Is there some club full of libations for homeschooling moms? Something like Costco only with a full bar?)
Tonight I feel that if I have to spend the rest of the summer with these little darlings I think I'm going to pull all of my expensive highlighted hair out of my head!!!


Now, let's go in a different direction to put my heart, and spirit, in a better place.

It's Friday Night so let's have a blog party!!!! (Pour the wine. Turn on my Playlist...NOW.)

First let's play a game. "Six Things You Need To Know". This game is being generously thrown in my direction by a personal favorite Tiffany from The R Family Diaries.

Six Quirky Things About Me:

1. While I type at the keypad, if music is playing, I pretend that I'm playing a piano, and singing as loud as my family will allow.
2. I have imaginary interviews with Oprah and Ellen.
3. When I wear a bathing suit I think everyone is staring at my huge thighs and my cellulite.
4. I need to have a window open somewhere in the house. (Kind of like a dog in a car. Air! I need AIR!)
5. I read a lot into everything people say to me. It's not healthy I tell ya'!
6. The relationships I make through my blog truly mean a lot to me. (And no one outside of the blog world will ever understand that.)

Now, "quirky" is subjective. What I think is "normal" just about everyone I know finds "funny" or "quirky". But I have to say... I'd rather be Quirky, with a capital "Q" than anything else.
At this point I should tag people. So let's refer back to #6 and go with that. You know who you are! I expect you to share some quirks with me!

Let's continue this party with gifts!

I received a special gift from Jenn who writes The Peacock's Nesting Place.
I appreciate this so much. I'm truly honored. I'm wearing the biggest smile.

Please visit Jenn's blog. She and her family are returning from living in England and she has wonderful stories to share.

The rules for receiving this award are:

2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on yours.
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

Now, I have every intention of doing this. And I will. But tonight, the music must continue!

Time for a Dance Party!!!!!

Metro Station "Shake It"

Gay music and video from NewNowNext.com

(**I dare you not to dance!!!** And for those of you that don't know, the tall boy is Miley Cyrus' brother.)

Ting Tings "That's Not My Name"
The Ting Tings - That's Not My Name

The Kooks "She Moves In Her Own Way"

That should get this party started. Now, I just need to get the girls in bed, and some of 'mommies juicebox', and I'll be good to go.
This just might need to last all weekend. Would you like to add to the songlist?
Or perhaps a good ol' fashioned mommy rant?

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. Pounding a beer. I'm in. And, yes, my kids are also driving me DRINK....how many more days left until school starts?

    I think you should do a regular segment of your imaginary interviews with Oprah and Ellen!

  2. So uh, as always...a day late, and a dollar short, lol I just found you this morning, but I WHOLEHEARTIDLY agree about summer being over SOON!

    I have a friend who homeschools and loves it...I don't get it. My kids keep asking me to homeschool..uh, I want them to LEARN something other than how to mix drinks and cus, cuz that is all that will happen if we were home 24/7 together! LOL

    OK..is that REALLY Miley's brother?!?!! And now that song is going to be stuck in my head ALL day, thank you very much;) LOL

  3. You are off to a fantastic start with the music. I "heart" The Ting Tings and The Kooks!!! May I suggest checking out The Fratellis? They have two albums out but the first is my favorite.
