I’m the Lowest of the Low

OK, right off the bat I’m going to admit that I’m the lowest of the low. I totally suck, big-time. I haven’t posted in forever. OMG, has it really been a month? I’m crawling into a hole now… The only excuse I have is that I’m busy. Sounds pretty pathetic – I mean, we’re all busy aren’t we? But honestly, ever since January I’ve been telling myself “Once summer gets here it’ll be better. Once summer gets here I’ll have time to catch up. Once summer gets here…” Unfortunately the reality is that summer is half over and it’s not better. I’m still not caught up. I still don’t have time. And all I have to look forward to is the beginning of fall and school-year activities. Stresses me out just thinking about it… so I won’t. And you can’t make me!

I wanted to come up with a Top Ten list of things to catch you up with the happenings in our zoo, but I really stink at top ten lists so I thought I’d spare you the agony. You can thank me later.

If I had done a Top Ten list this would be #5 because I was #5 at one point in the Blackhat Fish SEO contest. I didn’t expect to win – honestly, no sour grapes here – my goal was to do what I knew how to do and see where I ended up. I’m not sure exactly what my ranking was when the contest ended because I forgot what day it ended so I didn’t look. Too busy, I’m telling you! I also discovered that there are different databases that Google results are pulled from so a site may have one ranking in one database and another one in a different database. Interesting, huh? Makes it even harder to figure out what my final ranking was. But in any case I’m happy with my results even if I didn’t win buko bucks. How the heck do you spell “buko” anyway? Bucko? Booko? Boucko? Beats me…

I could have put this as #2 because we have two major home improvement projects we’re working on this summer. One is to remodel the main floor bathroom. We spent Fourth of July weekend working on that. I’ll write a separate post with photos later about it later but for now I’ll just say that it’s almost done… almost…

The other project is to remodel the basement playroom. This spring’s torrential rains and melting snow found their way into the finished part of our basement for the first time in the 9 years we’ve owned this house. Now we need to replace the carpeting but first we need to get to it so Teacher and I have launched a massive purging effort. It’ll be a long project, but I think it’ll be worth it when it’s done. I’ll take photos and post about that project as we go along.

So anyway, that’s all for now. I’m done with daycare early today, I have clothes to hang on the line, and a bathroom to paint. Catch ya later… PROMISE!
