Crazy Lady Go Bye Bye

I'm FINE! Where's the liquor at?!
This is my busiest time of year. The seasonal clothing migration is STILL not done. The semester is ending and students are emailing me every five seconds about their grades. Every single possible kid-related activity is kicked into high gear AND LIKE A GENIUS, I was all "Sure! I'll help out with that!"

Now please add in teacher appreciation week, two major Mother's Day undertakings, deadlines for Babble, assorted family obligations, 2 kids' birthdays, and a house so filthy that my neighbors are starting to look concerned about my children's welfare. Plus - POLLEN. I am brimming with allergies, which require me to take anti-histamines to function. The anti-histamines have the unfortunate effect of turning me into a crazy person with squirrels in my brain.

Here's what I look like right now ---------------------->

YES. Very attractive. So here's what I'm doing.

I'm taking the next 10 days to get my shizz together. A few days will be spent BEING EXTREMELY PRODUCTIVE. A few days will be spent totally unplugged with my kids and husband. Guru is in charge. Remember, she's super pregnant, has two little bitty kids to chase after, and she just moved. So basically I'm being a crappy friend by doing this to her.

Remember how I co-authored this amazing book with 35 other bloggers? Well, we've become friends. A little tribe who provides each other with support and kindness and dick jokes. So I've decided to use this time to showcase them. In fact throughout the rest of the spring and summer, I'll be featuring guest posts from these hilarious, wonderful ladies.

I'll be back right before Memorial Day weekend which crazily is less than 2 weeks away. Hopefully by then I will have gotten my shizz together and calmed down a little bit. JUST KIDDING. You know I can never calm down. 

The goal is to go from feeling like this:

To feeling like this:

Yes, that is Paul Rudd dancing. He is my favorite.
You're very welcome.

xo, Lydia

PS: You might need one more, here it is:

I KNOW. I know, you guys.

  1. Thank you for reminding me I am not alone on this crazy end of the year madness! Best of luck to you on completing this.marathon with your sanity in tact. :-)

  2. Thank you for reminding me I am not alone on this crazy race to the end of the year. My house, the kids activities, my crazy teacher obligations - may we all cross the finish line in June with our sanity in tact! :-)

  3. Omg....Paul. I am dying. That shiny suit is the best! I agree with the crazies right about now....I haven't blogged in a bit and I haven't even had time to figure out what I would say besides mumbled garbage.

  4. Feeling your pain. Fortunately, grades are in and the kids' school has already written me off! Suddenly, I have all kinds of blogging time.*** Why, I've written three posts this week (well, two, plus a wordless post with maybe the best picture ever), and it's only Tuesday!

    ***Unless, of course, you count the articles I'm supposed to be writing and the fact we're taking this shizz on the road with a major move in about 6 weeks. Ahhh, Denial, you've always been there for me. Please don't leave me now.

  5. They should put those gifs of Paul dancing on electronic highway signs when there's a traffic jam. How could anyone be annoyed when they're watching that action?

  6. You have certainly earned "time off" from keeping us all laughing! Enjoy.

  7. Ohhhh *le-sigh* How am I ever going to make it through my personal crazy without my semi-daily dose of your crazy? Enjoy your somewhat-less-crazy time :)

  8. I can certainly commiserate. I have to take this Friday off to clean my house to have friends over on Sunday. FRIENDS. Good, working Mom friends that would totally understand the amount of mess in my house...yet, none the less I feel the need to at least show them I remember how to scrub my toilet.

  9. Well I, for one, think you look GREAT!

  10. Paul Rudd has really long arms.

  11. oh, those dancing ones are The Best. they just made me pee a little. oh, and I think you look fab, too. have fun unplugged!

  12. Is that Paul Rudd doing the Carlton? Yeah, that's pretty damn cool.
