Some days you have to laugh or else you'll cry. Today I laugh.

Someone Stop Me!
I HAVE to stop looking at pets on CL and the Humane Society's website! I already live in a zoo. I feel badly that Zoe doesn't have a playmate, though. My in-laws brought their little dogs with them when they came to visit earlier this month and Zoe has been very lonely ever since then. There's an adorable lab on Craigslist right now that needs adopting and they only want $40 to help recoup the cost of nursing her back to health. She's about 5 months old and just precious looking. Zoe would have a blast with her! But alas, not only do we currently have the $40 to spend on her, we already have a zoo. Although, if I had the money right this second ... yeah, I'd so be picking her up tomorrow.....
I'm Mommy, Mama, or Mom -- depending on my daughter's attitude and current desires. I use my super-mommy powers to keep children's attitudes in check, gourmet meals prepared, a house clean, Daddy's uniforms clean (but not ironed--that's his job), make-up perfect, and to stay well the whole time. And if you bought that I do all that ... call me, I have a perfectly behaved cat to sell you. :D
In reality, I am a Navy wife with two kids that are way too close in age. I work hard at keeping my house clean (but fail most of the time). I keep my family fed (not promising that I'm the one that prepared it, but at least I try). I apply my MaryKay everyday, as I should because I sell it, but rarely do I truly put forth the effort I/it deserves to make it look good.
I love my life, no matter how imperfect it may be, and work hard to find laughter in my children's shenanigans.
Wondering what our family is eating for dinner? Or need help coming up with your own menu plan?
Unless otherwise noted: breakfast is cereal bars or (beef) pigs in a blanket or eggs or (maybe) instant oatmeal -- I'm all about fast and easy -- and lunch is leftovers from the night before.
