Bald patches are forming on my head

I'm not dead, I'm not ignoring anyone, I'm just swiftly drowning in a pile of To Do. Yesterday I canned up 15 pounds of tomatoes, which took all day, as anyone that cans knows - you can't plan on things moving at a swift pace. Also put up 10 pounds of corn (freezer) put up 25 feet of rabbit fencing to keep the buns from getting anymore tomatoes (of COURSE they nommed the heirloom Cherokee Purples. Of COURSE they did. For those about to ask, yes, we kept Darthanne inside on our trip, so. Bunny buffet. But not anymore. [/Hannibal Voice])

Also put some bird netting over my strawberry tower, dead headed the last of the spring blossoms, and did two weeks worth of laundry. Simultaneously occurring was: taking my son to the ortho to fix a busted bracket, planning for a dinner party for my husband's 40th/Father's Day celebration with our fathers, which involves making a cheese cake this morning and hoping someone pulls it out of the oven for me as I'll be at a VO audition at 11am, planning for my husband's funtime 40th celebration with friends on Saturday, which involves ordering a keg, getting pool supplies (we're having it at Brainpool's house) food that is outdoor safe, gifts, invites, etc.

I have two auditions today (one for EASY BAKE OVENS, eeeee!) with several hours in between to chill said cheesecake, make my Redonkulous 4 Cheese Macaroni, get potato rolls because I'm not making bread today (I made some yesterday and it's almost completely gone, of course) make a salad and season up the rib eyes. Oh, and get the house cleaned up well enough that I don't have to worry about giving my MiL - who is undergoing cancer treatment - Ebola or some such.

Which means that I spent a solid hour yesterday writing an Edward Cullen as a Dutiful Mormon Boy story which I find hilarious. (For those in the know, he's hosting this week's Family Home Evening and the encompassing activities. Lol.) I was planning on posting today, but if you read any of the previous paragraphs, you'll see why I'm waiting until tomorrow. Also needing to do today: schedule a massage for yours truly. Oy.

Positive energy (or a personal assistant) sent my way would be awesome. Or you know, just sit around and eat/drink/be merry - I'll live through you vicariously.

Here's some positive energy *throws protons your way"*.

Also, heads up on an upcoming issue of projectMAPLE - it involves me ranting how unromantic Eddiekins is.

I loved mine so much as a kid.

Tomatoes! My favorite summer crop. Unfortunately, we're the only kids on the block that don't have dogs or cats, so the squirrels nom all our tomatoes (one bite, spit out ripe tomato, rinse, repeat). We've given up and just buy them at the farmer's market. The corn has been so sweet and delicious, I've been grilling and freezing it for a couple weeks to enjoy.

I hope you get the Easy Bake Oven gig and they pay you in little cake mixes and anniversary ovens that you can share with everyone! It's a toy I bought myself with birthday money when I was way too old to really enjoy it, but I had been deprived as a child and neeeeeeded one! My parents gave it away when I went to college. Jerks.

The easy bake only survived for a short period in my household. Too many kids and too many easily breakable parts.
I would so volunteer to be your PA but I don't think I could keep up with you on a slow day.
But YAY for auditions and YAY for your youngster hubby's 40th bday.
*looks back fondly on my 40th*

My easy bake oven didn't last long because I could use the regular oven just as well at that age. Don't ask how old I was when I got the easy bake oven. Ever.

By the way, I was watching NCIS a few weeks ago and Abby mentioned Blood on the Highway. I'm not crazy, am I? She was referring to the one you were in, right?

I need a job. Hire me, I'll be your personal assistant. All you have to do is feed me and bam, payment.

Also, I want to read that story. NOW.

I'll make you coffee to perk you up, especially with the lacing of drugs in it.

Wow, you and your life and the business of it all. Have you thought about throwing out the veges, peeling off the labels of store brought cans and writing on them 'Stoney's Home Made Produce' on them, because you're really cutting into your drinking time with all this homemaking stuff. If the kids are old enough to order pizza, your job is done.

Holy shit! That is a lot to do! Good luck fixing it all!

No wonder you're exhausted.

Can't wait for new story.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
