Come on in, and please excuse the mess.....

Welcome to my new digs. It was time for a change of address. Sophie is home and to be honest it is hard to remember when she wasn't! I am hoping to continue to document the little things as well as the big things that happen around our house.... particularly since I can't scrapbook or even put pictures in photo albums! This blog will be a little less censored of my opinions:) with little more snark for your reading enjoyment!

I love the quote for my blog, I have been using this quote for years and it truly sums up my house! We all have cleaned the house and turned around and it looks like nothing has been done!! If you are lucky enough to be a SAHM with kids in school at least you get to enjoy your clean house until the little gremlins get off the school bus! I was talking with a friend who recently went to work outside of her home and she was telling me how tired she was....well of course she was tired! She works an eight hour day and comes home to start her "second shift"! Yup, time to make dinner, throw in a load of laundry and vacuum the living room all before your youngest has a snack and a story and it is time for bed. And whatever you do DON"T SIT DOWN! If your ass even hits the sofa and you can reach the remote....you will be watching reality TV and nothing will get done!!

I recently read an article about the new standard that workingwoman have set regarding housework . I am happy that the new "clean enough" standard will now leave me enough time to watch "The Amazing Race".

G'day! I had swung by your old "place" a few times, and thought I'll sticky-beak your new one! Love the new layout!

Don't get me started about cleaning house - we're trying to sell ours, so it's mostly what I whine about on my blog!

THE AMAZING RACE! Our season just finished, here in Australia - and I missed the FINAL!!! Can you believe it!!! Do you know who won the Season where the final 3 was and Asian Father/Daughter team, a Grandfather/Grandson team and a couple I think it was CJ & Rachael? Who won?!! I'm desperate to know!

You can email me four2five@gmail.com or swing by my place

You can link me if you like - I've bloglined you!

Love the new digs! Love the quote and couldn't agree more with..if your a$$ hits the sofa with the remote close by and reality TV on.. NOTHING and I mean NOTHING will get done around the house! That is totally my life right now. I'm making the hubs go house hunting with me so we can downsize. I'm overwhelmed with everything there is to do around here! UGh!

Colleen said...

Maryellen,

I need your help.
Someone just left a comment on my blog, I have no idea who it is...
seems creepy to me...
How does one make the blogspot more secure--IE--no wierdos leaving comments?

Colleen said...

I love your new blog!!!! And I love your quote. Very true in this house. I am a SAHM but with fifty billion kids so I clean 24/7. I swear the laundry grows over night.
Bring on the snark I'm ready!!!

Totally diggin' your new digs!

I had no idea who 'a beautiful mess' was when it appeared on my blog and said we had talked the other day. I thought, "who the hell is this freak" so I clicked over and still had no idea who you were, it took me a minute. Of course I haven't had coffee yet.

This is so you and I'm so jealous. I want a new look bad! I'm waiting till the tot comes home. I might be waiting forever.....sigh.

Love the quote!
L.O.V.E. it!
