The Non-Post

So I was all set to whip out a post tonight, complete with pictures, because we have done some things, and Mama has documented it all digitally.

Because that’s what we do around here.

We play.

And Mama takes the pictures.

And then do you know what?  Well, apparently I am not only good at taking thousands of pictures, but I am PERFECTLY OUTSTANDING at deleting a post that has already somewhat been saved.

Aim.  Shoot.  Score.

Apparently when I have two thousand things on my mind, and a little pop-up box appears before my eyes that asks me if I’d like to save the changes I’ve made, and I go ahead and click the NO option, the computer listens to me.

Sometimes I think my Mac is the ONLY thing that listens to me.

So, people, there will be no post today involving pictures.  I don’t have what it takes to start over at ground zero.  This is all you’re getting in the way of a Tuesday evening addition to Jedi Mama, Inc.  I’ve had a long day, and if I could stretch the word LONG out like a Hollywood limo full of prom-goers, I would, because those four little letters squished together so that they spell out LONG doesn’t even begin to do my day justice.

In fact, I had to actually make myself a handwritten itinerary like any organized travel agent would do, so that I knew where I had to be at 9:00 this morning, and where I had to be at 10:00 this morning, and where I had to be at 11:00, and then I had to remind myself that HOLY SNOT, BATMAN!  I still had to squeeze all of my PE classes in there, so I had to stop over at the gym and play games involving parachutes and 1st graders, and then I had to consult my itinerary to see where I had to be at 3:30, and again at 4:00, and what I had yet to do when the clock hit 4:45.

Because if ONE appointment is good in a day, then NINE commitments are usually better.

My head looked like Wile E. Coyote’s, when the stars and the exclamation points are circling it because the Road Runner has gone and cracked him over the skull.

And then the STEAKS!  The steaks took a sweet forever to cook tonight, because apparently I bought THICK steaks.

And by THICK, I mean that I basically bought a side of beef that was only missing the hide and the ribcage, but since we all know how I feel about bones in my dinner, you can bet that I double- and triple-checked to make sure we had BONELESS steaks.

Oh yes, ma’am.  I did.

And then I had to microwave the broccoli, and after today… Well… Slamming a bag of frozen broccoli in and pushing buttons to program the appliance to cook for six and a half minutes about did me in.

And then I successfully deleted my blog post, and I don’t have what it takes to redo things around here tonight.

But tomorrow!

Tomorrow Jedi Mama, Inc. will be up and running again, with all the usual nonsense that you’ve come to expect around here.

Happy Tuesday, people.
