It's that time!

It's time for the first TUSAL report for 2012.  Of course, you can't take a picture if the batteries in your camera ARE TOTALLY DEAD!  I found my beautiful vase hidden behind the Christmas decorations and was so tickled to find it again.  I excitedly grabbed my camera, turned it on, and immediately got the red light and it shut back off.  Crap!  How could I have forgotten that I ran the batteries down on ALL the cameras on Christmas day???

Anyway, back to the TUSAL.  It stands for Totally Useless Stitch-a-long.  It's where you just keep your ORT's in a pretty glass container and post a picture and a little wordy post about it each month on the full moon.  Now this is a SAL I can do.....if I remember to charge the stupid camera batteries!!  Go see Daffycat to sign up!

You're still here???? Okay, here's a little something to make you laugh.  This weekend through this morning I've had the worst of luck.  Saturday I dropped a glass jar of spaghetti sauce on the floor and somehow the sauce went one way and the glass went the other.  Yeah, I have no idea either and at that particular point in time I really didn't care about the why, just the "how in the HELL am I going to clean this up without stepping on any glass???"  Sunday, taking down the Christmas tree and decorations I found two missing DVD's that my son had been pitching a major fit about in the tree.  It's almost like he was trying to help me decorate it.  I also found several ornaments just thrown in the tree.  Me thinks the boy wanted to play with them but then put them back wherever he thought they may look good.  Taking the lights off the tree with help from DH was an amusing time as well.  At one point he asked me if I had been drunk when I put them on.  Uh NO, but you try to put the lights on while your four kids are wanting to help you do everying all at once and see how it turns out!!  Last night, Marie helped me get Logan out of the bath.  I came in to dry him the rest of the way and realized that she just used a towel that REEKED of urine to dry his hair and upper body.  #@*& Apparently, when Katie had her accidents (YES PLURAL) yesterday she used a towel to dry up the floor.  It was just thrown over the clothes hamper to dry.  I had to get in the shower with Logan in order to get him cleaned back up FROM HIS BATH.  Please, tell me you are laughing so hard that you have whatever you drink spraying your computer monitor.  It's okay, I'm laughing now too but yesterday......not so much.  Today I just put everything in the crockpot at 8:00 a.m for tonight's dinner and walked out the door WITHOUT TURNING IT ON.  No biggie, I turned it on high when I got home at noon.  It's still early so who KNOWS what else I can damage do today.

I will leave you now that I've given you at least a little giggle for the day.  I'm hoping to be able to come back to edit with a picture of my TUSAL but at the rate my luck is running......
