If you give a Moose a Muffin...

Have you ever read the children’s book "If you Give a Moose a Muffin" or "If you Give a Mouse a Cookie"...?? Well, short story shorter, if you give a moose a muffin, he will want some Jam to go with it...he ends up eating all the muffins, and wants to go to the store to get more muffin mix, but somehow gets side-tracked and does a puppet show, and a whole lot of other silly things...


You get the idea...


This is about how my morning started off. I was reading a blog and saw this cute idea I wanted to make...


before I pulled out my sewing machine, I decided I needed to wash my kitchen table off so I didn't get any of my "crafting" stuff all cruddy. While I was wiping the table, I noticed "crunchiness" on the floor, and wanted to vacuum, but the I realized my vacuum was upstairs. Since the vacuum was already upstairs, I decided to vacuum the up there, and then work my way to the kitchen. Ambitious...?? YES...35 weeks pregnant...vacuuming anything these days seems ambitious...

Anyhow, I begin vacuuming the upstairs. As I get to my room, I realize there is a bunch of laundry baskets that need to be moved. Moving the laundry reminds me that Brian and I have been talking about re-arranging our bedroom to make it more accessible for a basinet and our new baby...who will be here before we know it. I decide to move the room around. As I am moving the room around, I realize that not only can I NOT move my bed...I probably shouldn't. So I call the neighbor over to help me. He was super nice, and came and helped me!! SWEET!! I give him some cake, a doughnut, and some milk, and then go up and finish vacuuming my room at which point Brian comes home for a short break...


He sees the room, and is not sure about where the bed has been placed. He comes up with a better solution, and I talk him into completely re-arranging the furniture all over again while he is home on his super short break. He was THRILLED...let me tell ya...I re-vacuum again since the furniture is ALL in a new and different spot, and put all the laundry in a better spot...

Doing all this reminds me that I am 35 weeks pregnant, and my legs are REALLY swollen, and now I am having darn contractions...well, I always have them, but they are seemingly more frequent....so I decide to take a break from my projects and sit down and write about my morning...and how side-tracked I got, because it reminded me of a couple of my favorite childhood books...

As I sit down to blog, I notice that I have left up the instructions to that super cute idea I wanted to try....I am now wondering if I will be able to get to it today...I still have to vacuum downstairs...!!!

That's funny because when Forrest was going over to help you I said, "So how many different times do you think she have you move it?"
LOL :)

Trina said...

Tamra, You are hilarious. That is exactly why I don't accomplish as much as I'd like, because I do this constantly! I hope for you that it doesn't become a virus like the one that plagues me. Lol.

Nate was home this weekend and did all the cleaning I wanted to get done, but hadn't yet, because I'm way pregnant. I did get the laundry done. He told me that he wad doing the 'nesting' for me and that our girl can now come anytime. :)
I have started so many things lately and also get distracted by something else. I'd blame it on pregnancy, but I do it when I'm not pregnant too. I just comes easy for some of us. :)
Take it easy there dear.

It is soooo good to know that I'm not the only one who gets sidetracked like that! It's so darn frustrating cuz then I forget what my original goal was! hahaha! I still can't believe all you're trying to do WHILE being so pregnant! All I know is you best post some pics of all these crafty projects you've been doing before you have the baby...cause we all know once she's here, you won't have time to blog or do anything else! :)
