Sometimes I’m Just all Glad Inside

Sometimes I’m glad that my sister and good friend are willing to drive for eleventy billion hours to come visit me this whole week.

Sometimes I’m glad to have grownup ladies with me everywhere I go for a few days. It allows me some wiggle room on the whole “mature responsible mom” thing. These grownups sometimes wash my dishes, feed my kids and play games with me. I’d like to hire a grownup to live here full time and take care of us all. Grownup ladies are definitely worth having around.

Sometimes I’m glad that I don’t always have 6 kids under 5 living in my house. I can handle it for a week but SHEESH if I had a couple of sets of triplets I’d be a goner.

Sometimes I’m glad that in our culture, we can use “quotes” to make any statement “true”. Take these pitas for example.


Sometimes I’m glad that the kids go to the zoo just to ride on plastic horses who’ve been shish-kabobbed and bedazzled but then see real horses from the car window on the way home.


Mostly I’m glad that although Magoo’s nocturnal eyesight* is freakishly good, he doesn’t know enough about the miracle of life to ask questions. Strange things are happening in Seattle between an armadillo and a small white monkey. What will that baby look like, I wonder?

*It really is amazingly good. I think he could see the animals better in the dark than the light of day. Don’t worry. I frequently cook with garlic, carry a can of Coors with me at all times, and all of my stakes are made of wood.

    Okay, before you mentioned the armadillo and the small white monkey, I thought you meant Magoo had wandered into your bedroom late at night.

    Unless Armadillo and Small White Monkey are your pet names for each other. If they are, please don’t tell me why.

    You could “practically” write a whole blog about things being in quotes. Love it!

    And I, too, was very confused about who (or what) was caught in the act. But if those are your pet names for each other, you get points for originality…

    Hey, eleventy billion hours are a small price to pay for your scintillating company. 🙂

  4. Cute! Adult women are great to have around. 😀

  5. Sometimes that grown-up time is worth it’s weight in GOLD!!! Hope you enjoy your time together this week!

    Really? Coors? Wouldn’t be simpler to carry a real-and-for-actual bullet made of silver? Or do you just have that to fortify your courage should he begin levitating, hissing, sprouting sharp teeth?

    The other comments are way too funny. I can’t even begin to compete.

    Good grief, I’ve been out of the loop for way too long!

    The “quotes” obviously make the new reality. That being said, I “really look good in a bikini!” There. It must be so. (Don’t worry; I won’t try to make you agree with that bit of truth.

    And seriously, what would that marnkadilley look like? We’ll never know because like the armadillo, it would never make it to the “other” side.

  9. Angela says:

    “Armadillo” ? “Small White Monkey”?
    Jeana made me LOL.

  10. Heidi says:

    A monkadillo? Cool!

  11. Jeana says:

    I didn’t get the Coors remark until I cam back and read bon’s remark. bwahahaha!
