Lost in my translations

I am so excited to get this move under way…if by excited you mean I nearly break down into tears at the very thought of having to start stuffing boxes full of our belongings.

I have been so productive lately…if by productive you mean I spent the better part of two hours on Google so that I could finally figure out how to download the ringtones I had on my first Blackberry to my second Blackberry and can now have all my friends call me to tunes I liked five months ago, but am really tired of now.

I am a wonderful mother…if by wonderful mother you mean I totally forgot to prank my other two kids on April Fool’s Day, which sort of left one feeling like I was just picking on her to be a real wretch.

Wow, I’m totally getting into spring cleaning time…if by cleaning you mean staring at the dirt and thinking “WHY? I’m just moving in a couple months, I’ll have someone do it when it’s empty”.

I’m looking forward to swimsuit season getting underway here in Florida…if by looking forward you mean making sure my flask is clean so I am fully armed to drink heavily throughout the entire trying-on portion of our visit to Feel-Like-A-Sausage-Land.

Next week is our spring break…YAY!…if by YAY you mean not having to get up early and wrestle the kids into the van, no homework and a long extended trip to see family and friends…oh wait…that actually IS a YAY!!!!

I knew if I did this long enough, something would work out.

    Yay for you!

    I hate moving. Ugh. But you’ll LOVE when it’s over! 🙂

    I’m missing you at Suburban Scrawl. You never call, you never write. But I still lurve ya.

    I think that you and I have the same dictionary. Moving is so tough. If by tough you mean super tough.
    (So funny about forgetting to prank the other kids!)

    Enjoy Spring Break next week. Have the kids slave…er, I mean, help out. Then you can knock the spring cleaning on the list :O)

    So excited for your move!

    Feel-like-a-sausage-land: Out of that entire post, this is the one statement with which I completely identify!

    Have a great spring break! We are taking a week off further into April for our spring break. We will be heading to AL to visit our families. Talk about lost in translation!

    Good luck with that whole packing thing. The prospect of moving makes me want to, well, barf.

    Just came across your blog and thought I’d tell you that I LOVE your ABOUT US entry. I had no idea what your blog was about but after reading that entry, I am already loving your outlook on life.

    Will be back for sure.

    Funny stuff! Every dressing room is feel-like-a-sausage-land to me. And moving? Exciting, but sooooo much work! Glad to see you’re pacing yourself.
