Random 10 Friday

Is it Friday already? Where has the time gone? This week has whizzed by so fast, I hardly noticed it. I feel like I've been constantly doing laundry all week, and I'm still behind. How do we go through that many clothes in one week? Seriously? Nobody went out of town this week. We had a pretty normal week, as far as clothes wearing goes.
I'm sure it has something to do with my two little dress-upers who like to change clothes every 15 minutes. I don't wash their dress-ups every time they wear them either. I seriously wonder if my kids pull things out of their closets and put them straight in their dirty clothes baskets (they each of a dirty clothes basket in their closets). I should probably pay closer attention. I just hate to risk not washing something that was worn, because that's disgusting.
Maybe I need to use Motherboard's method of laundry abatement, and make a visit to the D.I.
For the record, the "niece" that wrote that Prop 8 post isn't MY niece. It's just a forward I got in my email, so I posted it. So, don't give me any credit for it. But, I do feel pretty strongly on the issue. I DO NOT want my 1st grader learning about sexual relationships. Period. Gay, straight, or otherwise. She is too young to be exposed to that. And it's been said that if this doesn't go through it could affect temple marriages being recognized as legal marriage. That is a huge deal people!! I know there are many who do not share my opinion on the subject, but that doesn't mean we can't still be friends.
OK, sorry for getting serious. And BTW, sorry, if I've been a lousy commenter lately. For some reason, whenever I click on a link on any website that opens another page on the web, my whole system shuts down. It's happening ALL THE TIME. I think I have a virus or spyware or something. So much for the expensive anti-virus software I put on my computer.
Tonight is our ward Halloween party. I'm kind of excited for it. Mostly because I'm sick and tired of my kids whining at me that they want to wear their costumes, and I won't let them so they don't get ruined before Halloween. So I'm happy for an excuse to let them wear their costumes. But, also because I got me a killer costume. Remember the crazy lady picture?
Remember her?

Well now, she's me. See?

Love the costume!

And I hope I didn't say anything in my last comment that offended you. I completely think that Prop 8 is necessary, and I wholeheartedly support it, but there are some political/church things going on that make me uncomfortable.

I'm done! :)

Jessica said...

I really do love your costume! That's kind of how I look when I clean and do laundry all day and don't get ready until 4:00!

Peggy said...

Awesome costume!!!!!! You go girl!

I was just asking a friend the other day if she does as much laundry as I do!?! It's a lifelong task that is for sure!

Your costume is crazy cute!!!
We don't really do Halloween but DO love giving out treats and seeing everybody dressed up~♥
I hope you have a great weekend and alot of fun tonight!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said... creative! I love that costume...

About your post...YES...I can definitely take pics of you on a Grand Piano and then photoshop you into a Meadow...It would be SO cool if we could actually get you out in NATURAL light to take the photo...then again edit it in PHOTO shop...I hate artificial lighting...but we could do whatever...

:) I would love to try for you!!! :)

Let me know!

LOVE the costume! So cute.
My husband is dressing up as me, and I'm dressing up as him. SHould be pretty funny. We went back and forth a little on it. For a while he was just going to be a crazy old lady, and I was going to be the grumpy old man to go along.
I'll be posting pics tomorrow--that's when we're having our ward party.

That's your halloween costume?! I feel so embarrassed, that's how I look every single day.

Elizabeth said...

Where did you find that awesome jacket? I seriously need one.

atsimms said...

We had our ward trunk or treat tonight. I dressed up as a witch and got one too many comments like "too bad sister simms forgot her costume". I guess I'll figure something else out for the next go round. Your costume looks awesome! Love the teeth.

Marivic_Little GrumpyAngel said...

Awesome costume! I love it! :-) I'm not sure what I'll be for Halloween yet...

I like yout tunes. I have on my iPod #1, 2, 4 and 5.

Um, your blog kind of opened slow for me tonight when I clicked on your link...weird, ha?

Andrea said...

You did look great! BTW I think that when you have each of your kids and you and your hubby all wearing an outfit each day, and jammies, that equals at least one load everyday of clothes. That is the sadness of it all, you are NEVER done.

Motherboard said...

You totally rocked the house last night as the crazy lady. I laughed all night about that!

Were we the only cools ones or WHAT??!

Frumpys coming to town in 2 weeks and wants to do a lunch-- wanna come??

Annie Valentine said...

I know how to solve your laundry problem: invite my mother to come stay for a week. I had forgotten what my bedroom floor looked like. She leaves Tuesday, sad for me and my laundry pile.

Cute photos, nice to meet you back.
