What's the Buzz? Tell Me What's A-Happening

Hello, lily.

Today was my first full day sans girls. I thought I'd write a list of what my life was like without them. I figured it would help you all to feel better about your own lives in comparison.

1. Woke-up after hitting the snooze about 100 times and with only a few moments to put on clothes and rush out the door.

2. Heard a strange buzzing sound while I was getting ready for work and wondered if I hadn't accidentally let a large mosquito in my house the night before.

3. Sat at work all day multi-tasking by inputting info into my computer, eating Chex mix, reading blogs, checking Myspace, trying to figure out why I had another migraine and then realizing it was probably a result of my screwed up sleep schedule the last few days.

4. Walked home in all the heat and humidity and managed to make a neat little sweat patch where my tank top met my stomach. Pretty.

5. Tidied up a few things at home and heard the buzzing sound again. Wondered if it was the noise an air conditioner made right before it blew-up.

6. Quickly decided to drive to my friend K.'s house and check out the garden where I'd be safe.

7. Helped K. tie up our out of control tomato plants and then stood around watching her weed things, while I bitched about how hot I was. The humidity fucked up my hair so badly, that braids became my only practical hair choice.

8. Went into K.'s house and shared a fizzy-ginger-tea-soda like beverage and talked about boys. (I know, again with the multi-tasking)

9. Went to Mr Datetman's house and messed around with Google Earth Maps. We checked out our current abodes as well as the places where we used to live. We also took little virtual trips to other cities. Who says I can't afford a vacation this Summer?

10. I went home and got ready for bed. I heard the buzzing again and realized it was Stinky's cell phone in her bedroom set to vibrate. I wondered how long it would take for the battery to die.

Good post, I had to laugh at the sweat patch. It's all too true. I love coming back to the office from lunch with a sweat patch. Good times.

I would've freaked if I had heard that buzzing. I'd think it was a huge bee flying around. My cat won't eat them anymore..Bees, not cellphones.

The buzzing thing! The buzzing thing! Sometimes things buzz in my house and the boys just look at me like I'm nuts. (yeah..don't even say it.) and then we find out it's the dryer alarm or something.

So I take it cell phones weren't allowed at camp?

Quit being busy even when you're not supposed to be busy!!! It's CRAZY.

Coincidentally, I just discovered the MSN earth map. (Maybe it's the same thing as Google). Oh my gosh, it was so fun, even if all you can see is the tops of buildings. It's the best way to waste time I've found in ... days!! I've bookmarked them all, just so I can do it all over again.

I laugh that your kid left her cell phone behind!

I saw my car on google earth once.

Sounds like a full day. Buzzing, girl sweat, Google Earth, Chex Mix, and heat. Cannot beat that.

Sounds like a mighty day. Glad you solved the buzzing mystery. Stuff like that drives me more mental than I already am.

1. You should have stopped at 99.

2. Maybe it was a two pound mosquito.

3. Don't get pretzel dust in your keyboard.

4. What? No Pictures?

5. Get out of the house now.

6. Phew!

7. Gotaa watch those tomato plants, they may strangle you in your sleep.

8. Fizzy-ginger-tea-soda?

9. Google. Finding new ways to keep people in their homes.

10. Well, at least it wasn't the Amazonian mosquito sabotaging your air conditioner.

Have a nice day.

I'm glad your cat won't eat bees or cell phones.


No they couldn't take their cell phones, thank god.

Booda Baby,

I know. I slowed everything down tonight and it feels great.


She had to, or else it wouldn't be here to buzz.

David in DC,

That's so cool. I wanted to be able to see that, but the image of my house wasn't very clear.


Ha ha. I would like to beat the girl sweat, though.


Yeah. It was kind of disconcerting.


I have no doubt the tomato plants might strangle me in my sleep. They seem to be a little on the evil side.

I was hoping it would be a giant Mosquito in the end, or atleast the cell phone of a giant mosquito.
