Getting ready for another surgery tomorrow (Tuesday). Sheehan’s having surgery on his lip this time. It’s called an Abbe Lip Flap procedure. It sounds pretty barbaric, so I’ll save the description for a different post – one more serious. But if you’re curious, here’s a website with photos – it’s pretty graphic, you’ve been warned. This isn’t the exact procedure he’s having done, but it’s pretty similar. He’ll have another surgery in two weeks to cut the flap. Fortunately, these are the last round of surgeries for about five years.
Dang. I just looked back at my blog and I hardly ever blog anymore. It feels like I just did a roundup of my best tweets like three weeks ago, but it was actually two months ago. I made a list of things and stories I want to blog about, yet I’ve done nothing. What have I been doing? Well, here’s what I’ve been doing according to my tweets…
I reminisced about memorizing phone numbers.
Remember back when we knew the 7- or 10-digit phone numbers for ALL our friends and family. Now the only phone number I know is 911.

I thought about what would be ideal for moms to find on St. Patrick’s Day.
Instead of gold at the end of a rainbow, moms will find a nap, a maid and someone to listen to their kids talk about video games all day.

I made big plans one weekend…
Big plans on a weekend used to mean hitting a cool new dance club, now it means buying an end table at Ikea and splurging on a hot dog.

I played jeopardy.
Me: Parenthood for $800, Alex.
Alex: The answer is "Everywhere"?
M: What is "Places my kids whine?"
A: That is correct!
[Crowd goes wild.]

I went to church.
Churches now have gluten-free communion wafers, in case that was holding you back.

Yes, they’re a real thing.
My daughter sang a song for me.
"I'm Uranus, I'm on fire. It's your desire."
-my 7yo's rendition of "Venus"

I thought about being a better parent.
If I ever really want my kids' attention I can just make a YouTube video of me "unboxing" whatever I need to say.

I asked my daughter to help with chores.
How come I have to do all this work and you do nothing all day?

I made it through another day.
Exhausted after a long day of holding my head up.

I looked around my house at all my “stuff.”
Day 1: [puts thing down] "I'll take care of this tomorrow."
Day 286: [walks by thing again.]

It was “bring your kids to work day” so I joined in the fun.
Brought my kids to work today. 1st, they did dishes, then laundry, then made a meal that I complained about how yucky it was for 30 minutes.

Then it was screen-free week. So we went screen-free for a day. I wrote about my experience last year on Huffington Post HERE. It was about the same this year as last year.
I had a conversation with my kid.
Kid: Mom! You know the Youtuber that-
Me: Nobody cares.

I got my kids some fidget spinners. Dumb.
Fidget spinners might be more effective if they had the power of a helicopter and could carry me away from all this.

I reminisced about the good old days.
I'm "called my crush and listened to them say "Hello" over and over again without them knowing who was calling" years old.

I compared my son’s energy level to mine.
My son's daily energy level = a rabbit
My daily energy level = a pancake

I celebrated World Naked Gardening Day.
Today is World Naked Gardening Day. Just be careful with your loppers.
— Kate Hall (@KateWhineHall) May 6, 2017
Just kidding. I don’t do anything naked. Even shower. I wear sweat pants. I really makes it hard to shave.
I thought about dieting.
Oh my gosh, IM NOT GOING TO MAKE IT!
– me, three minutes into a diet

And then I thought about all the things I was going to accomplish the day before Mother’s Day.
Woke up thinking of all the things I was going to accomplish today and then I laughed and laughed and flipped my pillow to the cool side.

Over on my Hall of Tweets blog I shared the TOP 15 FUNNIEST TWEET OF MARCH AND APRIL. I changed it from 10 to 15. Jam-packed lists now. I also interviewed @yenniwhite, @PerfectPending and @ObscureGent.
Also, I created a cool MEME PAGE on my blog here. It’s got my best memes, which are taken from my tweets – they just look prettier. You can see them all in one place and pin them straight to Pinterest if you’d like.
And that’s about it.
So what have you been up to?
