Business and Entertainment

Holy schmoly, you would not believe all the things that have been going on over here since I stopped sitting in from of the computer. I am constantly laughing as I catch myself thinking, "Well, since I have nothing better to do I might as well clean the bathroom." And, "Sigh, I guess I could read a few chapters from my book since there is nothing better to do." Or, "Hmmm, there's nothing better to do so I might as well play a game with the kids, make homemade hamburger buns, draw a picture of a mermaid, finally finish all those visual aids for Singing Time in Primary, read with Monster Man, homeschool Pablo, snuggle with Sweet Terror, take the kids to the library, make cookies, etc." How on earth is it that my brain has allowed all these wonderful things to be labeled as "nothing better to do" when compared with stupid computer sitting???? I am thoroughly enjoying myself and I thank you all for your words of encouragement and for being willing to listen to all my bad mom confessions =)

Now, for your entertainment, I would like to present:
Batman Takes Cinderella To The Ball
(Yes, the place looks trashed but I had just finished several art projects and was in the middle of cookie batch #2 and the kids had been "helping" all day)

Your kids are so cute. Batman was willing to go to the ball. That is something!

I am glad the no computer time during the day is working out so well.

My kids loved the video...they asked to watch it about 4 times. You should have seen them giggle.

I'm doing it too and I am finding the same thing. "There's nothing better to do so I guess I'll..." You are so insiteful!

Lisa- Last night "Cinderella" made me play that video at least 10 times.

Packer Family- Yay! I'm so glad I'm not alone.

I've been able to get a lot more done lately, too. Mine wasn't chosen, but my laptop decided it didn't like to be online, so I didn't have very much time on our upstairs computer.

I really have liked it. Now, I have to use will power to do it. It was so much easier when I didn't really have a choice!

That video was some of the best entertainment I've seen in days. You're batman and princess were precious! Good luck keeping your commitment to staying away from the computer. It's amazing what great things you're finding to do.

LAUGHING at how cute they are. If Batman and Cinderalla can hookup, there is hope for world peace. :-)

I'm guilty of "having nothing better to do" too. But the less I have to do online, the cleaner my house is. Maybe bloggers writing-block is a good thing!

I like the painting in the next post too.
