Went to visit cousins and Nana and go swimming. Good for the soul!

Here is where I pretend all is easy and blissful and ignore what is really going on in life until I can get a handle on it.
Thanks for pretending with me. Here is a hot tip though, don't ask the open book woman cause she will tell when she is ready.
So .......I made this chore chart.
And it's been working . Obviously the kids moan and complain about it but it's been pretty effective. We rotate it on Mondays and take turns who gets to rotate it. I need to make a second one with deeper cleaning chores like bathrooms ... Maybe for Saturdays. Will get on that as soon as I can concentrate on anything besides the big thing that will not be named. I have made time to eat a hefty amount of sweets... But what we talking about it.
This chart amuses me cause I did it on a whim and looks like me (ie: messy) and it makes me inwardly smile to think of how different all my organized people in my life would make theirs. But this works and more a get-her-done-life anyway.
Now let's all gaze and sigh at my beautiful chore chart which you are allowed to comment on and tell me how gorgeous it is and so beautiful it makes you want you want to cry?

These kids are cute.
My mom is awesome. Sent me my favorite picture growing up that used to hang in their young married living room.

Last week the universe gave me a big hug.
It was in the form of bunco. One group i used to attend a long time ago but now didnt know many. but the few were good old friends who used to hold my babies when they were born and when I was in my 20s. And I won the whole enchilada.
Like the most winningsome winner of the world.
Here is me with my grand prize.
Playing fee was $5. Plus I got dinner and didn't have to bring anything. Plus I was wearing my new favorite shirt.
Here is who coaxed me out of hibernating... My texting pen pal Sarah.
My head looks very large here ;)
