I am a loser.

I have failed at Wordless Wednesday yet again.

Yes...I awoke this morning clear-eyed and focused...ready to face this daunting challenge.

And now...less then three hours later I am branded once more... Sigh...

How can I be wordless when I need to tell you that when I took Mo to preschool this morning we played our usual game? She sits in the back in her car seat and I sit in the front and we take turn making animals noises. "Mooooo..." I will say and she will giggle and say "Uh oh, there is a cow in the car! Oh that is you Gwamma!" and then we giggle. And then she will say "meeeoooow!" and I will say, "oh no, there is a cat in the car!" and she will giggle and say "Is me Gwamma!"

Today she got me, though. After we had exhausted pigs, snakes, ducks, birds and chipmunks she said "poke, poke, poke!" And I said "hmmm... what is that?" So she repeated, "poke, poke, poke!" After a few more questions she finally blurted out..."Gwamma, there is a CACTUS in the car!" Now see? If I actually stuck to my wordless Wednesday plan you would have never heard that adorable story!

And how can I tell you that my husband and I attempted to do a Pioneer Woman Word Nerd contest last night and we barely even argued? It was cool. I'm thinking we won although it did take us 26 minutes to do it. I'm thinking PW will let us win when I tell her how romantic it was...doing a Word Nerd contest cuddled together behind my little desk! Awwww.... sweet!

And how can I tell you that I sent an e-mail to American Pickers with a link to my blog? I think they're gonna e-mail me back. I just know it. Probably right about the same time that PW does to let me know we won her contest! Hmmm....

And how can I tell you that Vicki has probably eliminated almost all fire risk at my house? It's true. She is a sales rep for the coolest idea I've seen in a long time - Fragrance Fans. Have you heard of these things? I am ordering several just to eliminate my husband yelling at me when we get home when I have left candles burning. Geez...I'm thinking he may need to take some anger management classes since all I'm trying to do is make my house smell good!

I hope you visit Vicki by clicking here to see these great products! to eliminate your husband yelling at you, too. Vicki is having a sweet giveaway with purchase right now.

And while you're there make sure to visit her second blog. She has a great ongoing pioneer story going on right now...just click the link at the top of her post to visit All My Yesterdays while you are there!

Geez. I'm getting tired and my fingers are cramping up. How can Wordless Wednesday be so seriously exhausting?

But one last thing. Do you all know PJ? I have to remain wordful just a bit longer so I can tell you that PJ is having a ridiculous (that is the cool word now that means GREAT!) giveaway on her blog to celebrate her upcoming Blogaversary!

PJ tells me that not only does she want you to visit her blog to help her celebrate but she's also hoping visitors find "The missing sock, that word that was on the very tip of their tongues but never materialized, their keys, their tempers, their virginity, a good parking space, a self-cleaning family, the ability to remember what they went into the room to get, truth, justice and the American way" while you are there!

I think this little quote gives you just a small idea what PJ is all about.

Go there! Enter! Read! Find your missing sock or something more personal!

She is giving away some great prizes.

Wait! What am I doing?

If I send you over there then my chance of winning becomes less.

Hmmm...

Hmmm...

OK, I'll do it anyway because I like PJ and I like you all... so yea...

Just click here and you will go to her giveaway!

Geez. Louise.

I am exhausted. NoSirreeBob, I cannot go any further with this Wordless Wednesday post so I will stop now.

But in honor of the sentiment of that MEME I would like to observe a moment of silence now.

...

...

...

OK! That was long enough!

It's official. I am done writing. There is nothing left I have to tell you.

Goodbye.

...

...

oh...

...ummm...

...don't forget tomorrow is Alphabe-Thursday and it is the letter "F"!

Bye for real now.

...

Bye....

No, you hang up first!

Sigh.

LOL! Your blog is so entertaining Jenny! I just came over from PJ's blog ...love her sense of humor too!

I have my "F" post up already as it fit both Outdoor Wednesday and Alphabe Thursday. I actually want to do a Wordless Wednesday someday ... I have photogrpahs galore to use and I wouldn't have to do my two finger hunt and peck style of typing, spell checking, and editing for an hour type of post and then I might get to bed before 2AM..lol!

Hugs, Pat

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

See -- I can't type! I meant "photographs" sigh!

Debbie said...

Heading over to PJ's right now!! Very hard for me to be wordless...we use to try to play that game with the boys in a long car ride, I would bribe them who could be quiet the longest.....it's not in their genetics LOL!!~ See you later Jenny, thinking of my F now!~

Eva Gallant said...

thanks for visiting my SITS day blog. And by the way, this was the wordiest wordles Wednesday ever! lol

The Muse said...

crazy...and i loved every word (not said) lol...
now...where and how do we do sign up up for the alpha meme...
is there a mr linky :) ?

My name is PJ. said...

Matlock, You killed it! "Killed" is a cool word now that means "You rocked it!" "Rocked" is a cool word now that means "You da bomb." "Da bomb" is a cool word that means you're the best.

What? What do mean it's 2010?! Oh...uh...then....um....none of those is a cool word any longer.

But your are still the best. Thanks!!!! xo

Keetha Broyles said...

You could do TWO Wednesday posts - - - one wordless and one wordy!!!

:-)

Justine said...

No, YOU hang up! heeheeheee!

Okay, what is this PW word thingy? I don't usually go to her blog anymore. I felt like a grain of sand on a mile-long strip of beach, if that makes any sense to you.

Cawwwwwwwwwww cawwwwwwwwwwww! Oh no, there's a crow in your blog!

Justine :o )

~Kristen~ said...

Girl, if you are a loser (which you are soooo not!!!) then I am right there with you!!! I just can't do the Wordless Wednesday thing!!! Never could. I don't think I can do anything wordless....at least that is what my husband would say (to which I then have many words in response!!! ;-)

Drama Queen said...

Dang it. I was really hoping you'd write what a chipmunk sounds like. I'm having a hard time with that one.

I always have skunks in my car...yup, they're called "little stinkers." :) My kids love that one.

Have a great day!

Deb said...

Jenny...there is no way you can be wordless...we wouldn't want you to be either..

Julie Schuler said...

I do read PJ's blog, pretty regularly now. Wonderful introduction, this AlphabeThursday. I can't wait for tomorrow!

Dee said...

I am glad you did not stay wordless today. Your little Mo seems to be very bright to think up the poke for a cactus. :) I do enjoy coming to your blog. It is so up beat and fun.

Nora Johnson said...

So witty - and have a great day tomorrow too!

x Lola:)

Helen McGinn said...

*LOL*! Yeah, my wordless wed was a wee bit wordy too....gorgeous wee story of the wee 'un. I'll go check out the blog! xx

Megan said...

Now Jenny...I'm expecting my email from PW letting me know that she'll be shipping my Kindle tomorrow. And because Q-Tip needed me I was unable to enter the contest until late last night...So you MUST be the #1 first place winner and I am going to be the randomly selected first place winner. Deal? DEAL!

Love your Wordless Wednesday post! :-)

Theresa said...

What is a blog without words? Hmmmmm? I like words so you just keep on chattering my friend! Love the games you and Mo played in the car:) Aren't those grandbabies just the sweetest? Hugs dear Jenny! Big hugs!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Jenny, I sure wish I could play tomorrow because I have a lot of F words. Good ones. Not anything, uh, questionable. ;-)

Out the door again, but I hope to be back next week...

XO,

Sheila :-)

All My Yesterdays said...

Hey Jenny, I'm so glad you did the wordless thing again this week..hehe
And thanks for the ME thing! (I can't wait for you to see how great these are. And to hear your hubby smile) And Pj's too, like Pearl says, you two Rock etc.(I should share the email she and I did today with you..funny!) Anyway, I better go see who visited today...
Keep playing the word thingy with little Mo and see what else you come up with. Ok I better stop all this chatter. Guess it makes up for my wordless wednesday :P

See ya yesterday..

Live.Love.Eat said...

That game with your little granddaughter is precious!!!!

And fragrance fans? I am def going to check those out right now. Thanks for your recent visit.

SquirrelQueen said...

Sometimes wordless just doesn't work, we would have missed the cute story. Mo has a wonderful imagination.

Busy Bee Suz said...

You are a silly/crazy woman. And I love silly/crazy people!!!
I have never ever in my life been good at wordless wednesdays. I have tried. But I am a loser as well.
moooooooo.
There is a cow in my family room.

I LOVE PJ!!!!

Brenda said...

It has been fun as usual! Liking the music I am listening to so I might just have to sit here staring at what I have already read. Love the car game. I think I will try and remember it to play with my grand daughters when I next pick them up for their monthly visit. It is about a 45-50 minute drive and the oldest 4 1/2 usually stays awake and the 3 year old falls asleep. Do you take yours to school each day? How lucky you are!

Bumpkin on a Swing said...

I love Ree! You should see the pic I entered in the doggie contest.

Your wordless wednesday wore me out Jenny!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

I will be sooooooooooooooooo *jealous* if 'American Pickers' contacts you! [Especially the tall one] >,-)

But, you knew that! >,-)

But if you tell us that George or Jean contacted you.... Wellllll... I may not be able to *handle* that! Not... at... all!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Don't you all just hate it when people leave inside comments?!?

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

haha!!! Good thing that you didnt have a wordless wednesday! We would have missed out on so much fun! Love the poke, poke, poke! :o) Good one!

and I'm married to the original Mr. Safety, so I totally understand the candle thing. haha

Love your moment of silence too...& I am so like that with the phone...you hang up first! hilarious!

Blessings & Aloha!
I have something for you...and even if you are a blog free blogger...just know that I was thinking of ya! Please come and take a peek at what it is...

Pondside said...

Just a minute while I take a breath!
No Jenny, you do not get an "L" for loser - you get one for "Living" because it sounds like you do a lot of just that - you pack a lot into a day!

Linda said...

I love the game you play with your granddaughter. So cute and fun. You have had a busy day but I will see you later for Alphabe-Thur.

Mrsblogalot said...

Haaa! Wordless is so overrated! I much prefer your way!!
(-:

Thanks for stopping by today Jenny!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

You are too cute! I really hope you hear from the pickers...

My Grama's Soul said...

I am SO GLAD you seem to be UNABLE to participate in Wordless Wednesday. If you did, how would we have been able to ready this over the moon funny post!!!!!

Blessings,

Jo

Annesphamily said...

You crack me up! Everytime I come over here I am leaving smiling, laughing and generally feeling like a silly kid! Thanks for your cheerful blog!

Jo said...

it's okay ... most losers are in fact very funny, very lovely & quite genuine ... love your blog Jenny, you keep me laughing :)

Sares said...

What a relief for you to get this all off your mind! There was a great lot of fantastic information there, thank you very much for passing it along! The car ride with your Granddaughter was very cute, she sounds like a real character with a vivid imagination! I hope you are having a great week Jenny and good luck to you on PJ's giveaway!

Bits-n-Pieces said...

we can be losers together.
I remembered it was Wordless Wednesday while I was at school today. Started pondering on what pic I could share...
even sat down here tonight to post something....and then for some reason, my brain skipped right over it and started on my alphabee entry instead.
so...a pic-less Wordless Wednesday today!

maybe next week?
