I interrupt this repeat post...

...to tell you that I've been taking care of Grandlittles with strep for about a week now and I think it might have kinda/sorta grabbed me.

YIKES!

So I'm feeling icky but I don't want to break my post a day streak so...

I'm bringing you a re-run.

Yes, yes I am.

And I don't feel a bit ashamed...

...cuz this post, sadly, is still totally and completely true.

And even though I'm feeling a bit road-killed here, I still have just enough energy to wish a Happy New Year!

...

...

...I'm thinkin' this is pretty much how it would go...

Not that I know for sure...

...but let's just say for instance...

That person...whoever he or she might be would...

Go to take the ornaments off the tree and one would roll under the couch...

And then it would be icky under the couch so they would have to get a broom and dustpan from the garage...


(ps. This is a googled picture of 'dust bunnies'! The underneath of my couch looks NOTHING like this! I think!)

And that part of the garage would be kind of messy so they would take a moment to tidy it up and while they were tidying they would see a bag with a bunch of little kid stuff that they had taken out of the car and forgotten to put away...

So they would have to sort that out and go to put all the little kids books and art supplies away...

And in the process they would see that the rest of the kids books were all messed up...

And in the midst of the books they would find some coloring books which are obviously not supposed to be there...

So they would take the coloring books to the art supply stuff where they would not only find the new stuff they just left there from the garage but also a mess in the old stuff which would require tidying up and they would also find several pairs of little girls socks that would need to go to the laundry room...

Where there would be a load of laundry reading to go into the washer and another load ready to be hung out to dry...

And after they hung out the clothes...

... they might realize that they were getting tired so they would go make themselves a cup of tea and then go lay on the couch with it to watch a re-run of Iron Chef...

And then their significant other would come out to the living room and say "gee, I thought you were taking down the tree."

Hmmm....

I'm just saying that technically something like this could happen to someone who may, or may not, have ADD.

Sigh.

haha...were you poking around in my garage? Sounds similar to what's been going on here this past week. And now I'm coming down with a stinkin' cold. ugh. This too shall pass! Happy New Year!

Jenny, I swear there is no way all of you got strep throat from my Granddaughter, who missed three days of school the week before the holiday and was on a 10 day run of antibiotics. I swear. I don't think the germs could travel that far.

What a way to end the old year and start the new one!

ananchorage said...

Been there. Done that.

Live, Love, Laugh, Write! said...

Yup - that sounds about how I clean!

Gattina said...

That's not a nice ending of the "old year" so I wish you health and all the best for a Happy New Year !

mub said...

I hope you and the grandlittles are on the mend ASAP. Strep is absolutely miserable!

Happy 2012 to you and Mr Jenny!

H said...

Poor you! How miserable to be ill. I really hope you feel better very soon!

Polly Janos said...

Wanderer said...

Hope you're feeling better soon! Your supposed day reads just like one of mine! Have you been talking to my husband? There's a reason my tag name is Wanderer!
Love from PA. Have a great New Year!

Terra said...

First, I hope you recover quick, and second this is a problem for many of us...start with one project find 12 others to do and never really complete the first one!

Maggie said...

Hope you are feeling better now Jenny.
Happy New Year from Normandy!

Sue said...

Happy New Year!!

We used to take care of Kaitlin and Grace when they got sick. I would tuck them into my big bed and hand them the remote! Well, that's what they asked for!

As for taking down the tree, Rod zeros in on it and forgets there are other decorations as well. He made four trips to the attic before he was done. I think he has tunnel vision. He certainly doesn't have ADD, but I think I know someone who does.
