October 15 07

this is how i woke up on friday morning: “Mommy! I awake! I need some milk! and some DoraBoots! Or maybe wondapets! mommy! mommy? are you dere? mommy!” at 6:00am.

this is how i woke up on saturday morning: in a hotel. in niagara-on-the-lake. at 9:47am. bliss. no kids. no kids. no kids. (it was so good, it needed to be said thrice)

this is how i woke up on sunday morning: “mommy! lookahme! i paint!” she sure did. she painted. with this:

all over herself. her pajamas. the rest of my make-up. the carpet. oh, it was fantastic.

this is how i woke up this morning: “mommy. i awake. and i wet. i soooo wet.” at 7:30am. i usually leave the house at 7:30. i left the house at 7:41 (i’m pretty sure that’s probably a record. or something)

so, you can imagine how good i look this morning. I got ready in 11 minutes…and i have no makeup to speak of.

oh yeah…i’m HAWT.

i’ve taken a vow.

The No Candy Promise 2007

from now until November 7th (one week after Halloween)…I’ve sworn to the lovely miss petroville…that no candy will pass my lips.

and now i have someone to answer to when i’m tempted to eat

who’s with me???

come on over to Fabulous this morning and see what my son decided to go and ahead and learn to do while i wasn’t looking…

  2. I am soooo not with you on the chocolate thing. But, I’ll happily send you my address if you would like to send me any spare chocolate. That Reese cup in the picture looks really good!
    And, 11 minutes??? Impressive.

  6. Okay I am in desperate need of some sort of challenge to get my butt back into gear. So I am with you on the no candy!

    There may be one week in that time during which my husband and children may leave me if I can’t have chocolate to calm me, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. haha

  8. Foundation is BRUTAL to clean up. And I look worse than you do today – I realized with a dizzy shock at EIGHT that I needed to get my kids to school so I quickly threw on some jeans and a sweatshirt and ran them there without BRUSHING MY HAIR, let alone putting on some makeup. Eh, who cares? I’ll look cute by the time my husband gets home.

  9. No ca-ca-candy? Bossy can’t even say it let alone achieve it.

  10. I’m pretty fortunate, because the candy is not my problem, really. If someone were to make me vow that no cheeseburgers would pass my lips, well, that would be helpful.

  11. Does no candy include cookies? I want one of those Starbucks’ white chocolate macadamia nut cookies NOW! Ha — good thing I’m trapped in my house with the sleeping kids! Hopefully the craving will go away by the time they wake up!

  12. when we were away at a friends cottage, i was so impressed with how quiet yitzy was going to sleep. until i went into his room. which was also my room. he had drawn all over his hands feet and face with my favorite lipstick and lipliner. it probably would have been a good idea to make sure that my makeup case was safely closed inside the suitcase!

  16. Oh, you HAD to put the Peanut Butter Cup smack dab in the middle of that photo, didn’t you? Now I want one. Or four. Which is why I don’t buy chocolate bars for Halloween.
