Mr Picky and the Peas – Epic Battle

Go-Go earned the nickname “Mr Picky” during a now-epic battle over peas.

He wasn’t quite two.  And the battle left no doubt in my mind that he was the strongER willed of my two strong-willed boys.

You read that right – I am the proud momma of TWO strong willed boys.  They are 16 months apart.  And I love them.  I’m a proud surviver of the “two under two” club.


Even now, it’s hard to explain. [Read more…]

Monthly Goals – August

monthly goals from thishappymom.comMonthly goals are a good thing, right?   The theory is that having goals means we accomplish more stuff, and that without goals we end up just meandering through life.

I pretty much blundered my way through the summer and ended up accomplishing very little that I had wanted to do.  Based on my personal experience, the whole “goal theory thing” is right.  So I’m being all mature and grown up and I’m trying to set some monthly goals.

You’ll note that I’m posting this at the last possible moment.  It’s not like I had monthly goals just sitting there ready to go or anything.  I am totally flying by the seat of my pants on this one and I’m running the risk of spectacular public failure.  (entertaining for you, but not enjoyable for me).

Laundry Battles – Winning the Laundry Wars

winning the laundry wars

I sometimes wonder if winning the laundry wars is possible!  I am at constant war with Mt Washmore.  Mr Washie may be my friend, but Mr Dryer is my mortal enemy.

I would do most anything to win the laundry wars!

A friend posted today that she was seriously lacking motivation to get her laundry caught up. Instead of tackling the post-vacation backlog of laundry, she wanted to do something fun (like nap). I’m having similar issues today, so I challenged her to a laundry battle.  I sent her a message that said

I challenge you to a laundry war! Whoever gets the most loads washed, dried, and folded today wins. If its just clean and needs folding, that counts too. The other person also wins, but they get to buy the coffee. 🙂

She hasn’t responded yet, but I’m starting anyway.  I have some serious laundry problems.   More later.  Feel free to join in the battle.

Or tell me… what crazy thing do you do to get motivated?

Crazy Laundry Battle Update

laundry battle laundry wars

My friend and I are in a week long laundry battle to get caught up on our laundry.  This is day three.  I thought I would give you a quick update of our progress.

Friend: Yesterday got 3 loads washed and dried, two loads put away plus put away all the clean clothes left from our trip. Will be gone a good portion of today (swim class, bible study, swimming pool) so you will probably win 😉 Getting load number 4 (of 6) in washer now, will dry when I get home later. [Read more…]
