Mad Monday

I felt like such a fool. First, I was FURIOUS. I brooded, I'd been ripped off. I'd just spent 20 minutes in the bathroom waving a Fairy Wand around!

{{Which by the way, the guy at the fair SWORE to my nearly three year old was REAL}}

It makes a great

☆☆bli..bli..bling sound☆☆ and flashes pretty lights and all ☆☆


Someone point me in the direction of the complaints department right this moment, I wanted to scream!

I wanna report this guy to Santa. Put him on the naughty list Big Guy!

Then a small hand took mine and a little voice calmly said to me...Mummy, it's a Light Saber not a Fairy wand!
And all was suddenly clear, so obviously clear...how silly I had been!
I threw away any thoughts of fairy dust and glittery wings...
...and I used 'The Force'
Brute force, muscle power and a good dose of CLR...man the calcium deposited by our water is mean!
I swear I was in there for two hours...Housework can be brutal!
What a workout...Master Yoda would have been proud!
I reflected upon these words of his.

“Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.”

I'm small but I used the force and am suitably satisfied.
A small but tediously physical job done.
Energy levels increasing, all because I now have a scum/calcium build-up free shower!
All because I got around to one of those jobs you always push to the bottom of the list. So today I thought I'd turn my list upside down.
If you turned YOUR list upside down...what would be the next thing you tackle...what have you been avoiding?
Crossing it off your list might just make you feel better than you'll ever imagine!
Go on...give it a go.
Let me know how you go ;0)


  1. Organizing my gazillion scrapbooking supplies and trazillion-goo-goo-plex photos.

    Catching up on my scrapbooking.

    Parting with the children's clothes (but I swear I can't do that, because although I don't know how to sew I am going to make a quilt for each one of them and somehow incorporate favorite pieces of articles of clothing with pictures onto them, you know like in the movie Stepmom?!)

    I could write a list that could go on and on and on........

    Thanks Jewelz! I'm off to therapy now (:


  2. Points to the Studio >>>>>>>> Scrapbookers Heaven!
    Points to self <<<<<<<< Non-scrapping scrapper!

    Sleep with Angels

    All the L♡VE in the Universe

  3. The bottom of my list has that big basket of "hand wash" laundry sitting on my dryer on it and it is beginning to overflow. I think I will have no choice but to turn my list over soon! Oh and that stupid Tupperware (lazy susan) cupboard that needs cleaning because it is such a pain to find anything in there! I also need to go through the baby's dresser, take out the small clothes and put the next size in... Now I am afraid I should unplug this computer and get some real work done! Blech! ;)

  4. Missed you for coffee this morning, I will make us a fresh pot for tomorrow morning.
    I soooooooo enjoy you, you make me giggle!

    Hugs and all the love in the universe from moi to te.

  5. So today,
    I slapped on my dirty old sweats with the stains all over them, and then of course they just wouldn't look as good without my shiny red patent leather stilletos, then I went over to our armoire and slipped on my black lacy corset, then as I stepped outside I notice this chill in the air so I then of course had to run back inside and get my hoodie with the holes all over it but it was a brilliant red and it so matched with the stilletos! Let us not forget about the hair, the rollers in my hair were not quite dry yet so I then had to wrap it with this great polka dot gauzy kerchief that I found at this wicked yard sale at the trailer park.
    What was your attire for Walmart!
    I am so motivated and pumped now everytime I decide to shop there....I mean I really feel as though I can express myself, it is as though I am walking down a runway in Paris.

    Hugs and I really do miss you.
    All the love in the universe from me to you!
