Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to title this post "Thank God It's Friday" really. I am a Mom and like all Moms my work is NEVER done! There is always something to do. But, to me it means that MrKB is off work for the weekend and can at least help out with the kids, and maybe let me sleep in since he's used to being up at 4:30 in the freaking morning every day, he gets up waaay before I do on weekends.
But anyway...so I have finally joined the ranks of the MANY HNTers and posted my first HNT pic. As of this writing I had 13 comments on my baby girls chubby little hand! Wow! That means that at least 13 people made their way over to my humble little space out here in blogland...the most comments I've had in one day so far since starting my page of rantings and ravings. Even more than that, last night when I checked profile visits before I went off to bed (somewhere around 3:30a.m.) I'd had a grand total of 16 visits. Just awhile ago I checked again and there's been 76! WooHoo! People know I am here!
My first HNT experience was great, though somewhat exhausting. By the time I got my little pic up and posted about it over at Osbasso's there were already something like 223 people who had theirs up before I did. I spent the rest of the night checking out these many HNT pics and bookmarking blogs that I wanted to go back and read more of later. I now have 30 marked, and I'm sure I will add more. This blogging and blog-reading thing is gonna take up much more of my time than I thought! Which is not a bad thing, as I really enjoy it. :)
BTW...I need to get me one of those hit counter thingies...if anyone can tell me how, please let me know! Also, while surfing all these blogs, I was amazed at how creative and beautiful so many of them look. Mine is so plain and cookie cutter boring! I have no idea how to make it more "mine".
Today I spent the day with 5...count 'em...5 kids in my house. My mom-in-law brought her two (who happen to be my niece and nephew, 8 & 9...half brother and sister to my kids...long story there, maybe I'll go into it later sometime) over this morning because they are on Fall Break and she had to work. And later that morning the 5 yr old we are still working on getting in our home got dropped off by his current foster parents for a weekend visit with us. Then of course I have my 2 yr old and baby girl.
The day went pretty well. Kids behaved themselves for the most part. 2 yr old got a goose egg on her forehead though, from her attempt to climb on the crib...she fell and whacked her head on it pretty good. The way she cried and carried on you'd think she'd split it clean open! Sheesh...
When mom-in-law came to pick up her kids, my 2 older ones wanted to go to her house, and since she said she didn't mind I was like "Take 'em!" So they went, and I got a couple hours or so of relative peace and quiet by myself while baby girl took a nap. MrKB came home with stuff to make homemade hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill and has gone to go pick up 5yr old from Grandma's. He is bringing 9yr old back with him to spend the night and 2yr old is gonna stay the night there.
Man, I'm tired...
