Top Ten {Tuesday}: Things That Distract Me

1. Skype. The sisterchicks have been skypin’ it up this week! Every night it feels like a sisterchick party and if you remember…ain’t no party like  a sisterchick party, yo!

2. My Husband. He is actually working right now. So, he’s not much of a distraction. We look like two computer geeks sitting at the kitchen table. Or rather, we are two geeks sitting at the kitchen table.

3. Discipline. We have been up to our ears in bad behavior over here. I checked out two parenting books at the library today. I have safely come to the conclusion that I am a terrible parent.

4. Squirrel!

5. My other blog. I have had record traffic at Impress Your Kids this month! As of today Impress Your Kids has had 1000 more hits than last month—and we’ve still got 9 days left in June! {That was a HUGE plug for you to go over and ogle at IYK’s greatness!}

6. Cut and Paste. I don’t know. I had a #6 earlier and then when I clicked back over here to type some more, it was gone. So, apparently I cut without pasting. *sigh*

7. My Contacts. Not like my email contacts, my actual in-my-eye-contacts. They are totally dried out and tired by 7pm. And it makes it hard to type. Also. I was promised laser surgery after I weaned Asa. I think I’m waaaay past that. Show me the laser!

8. The Kit Kat in my cupboard.

9. Camp Primo. My kids will be at “cousin camp” in two days. And it is the first ever THREE DAY Camp Primo. My parents are saints. Or crazy. Or something. Me? I’m just happy I get to sleep past 6:30am for THREE DAYS.

10. Brilliance. Wait. No, brilliance doesn’t distract me. It eludes me.

:: :: ::

So, show me your best list! Or if you’re like me, just show me a mediocre one! I have to apologize for not getting to everyone’s posts last week—that Performing Arts Camp was a major distraction from my blog.

OK, you know what to do: WRITE a Top Ten post. LINK back to me. PASTE the link below. LOVE on the rest of the participants.

  1. Wow, I can’t believe I beat you to your own carnival. Totally random coincidence. Just got the baby down. Look! Another hit to IYK — what a great resource for summer.

  2. Oh, I totally feel you with the contact situation! Only, I’ll just stick with switching over to glasses rather than laser surgery!

  3. I wasn’t going to link up this week but it just didn’t seem like Monday night missing out on the Top Ten fun so here I am.

    Congrats on the high traffic! I hope I helped a little cuz I linked to you on Sat. Stumbles. A link that was long over do. I appreciate you!

    I hope you see the laser! lol

  4. Mmmmm! I love Kit Kats. I love them so much that I think I am distracted by the Kit Kat in your cupboard.

  5. Kit Kat or really any chocolate, is my biggest distraction. In fact, there are some chocolate chips calling my name.

  6. If I had chocolate I would be distracted too….mmm…. chocolate…. off to explore the contents of my kitchen…. 🙂

  7. Distractions…mine would be work, and the Princess, and all of the sudden Farmville. The Princess wanted to play and she’s using my account. Sucked me right in. Oh wait, I think my soybeans are ready. Gotta go harvest!

  8. You are NOT a terrible parent!!!!

  9. Oh, thanks for the chuckles! I am feeling so stressed prepping for a huge trip, I *needed* THIS distraction. 🙂 Squirrels! Too funny.

  10. Oh my gosh, you had me dying at “Squirrel!” LOVE it.

  11. How do come up with this stuff every week!! You’re killing me! And by the way, you ARE brilliant, my dear!

  12. Can Libbie come to cousin camp? PLLLLLEASE? I mean, not because I want to get rid of her for three days. Ahem. Because she doesn’t have any cousins and probably won’t for a long time. Yep. That’s it.

  13. I totally cracked up on #4. I can help you with one of these. re#8–Eat the Kit Kat and it won’t be distracting you anymore. Simple!

  14. “Squirrel!l” LOL. UP!!

    My kids talking distracts me. I can’t tune them out so it’s almost impossible to write a coherent blog post when they’re around.

    Cousin camp sounds like fun!!

  15. LOL – I think you should just eat the chocolate. Then there would be one less thing to distract you. Although, once you eat the chocolate, then you’ll be distracted by the thought that you are that much closer to running out of chocolate. It’s a nasty cycle…

  16. Very appropriate topic for me! Getting my hair done last night distracted me from my Top 10 post so I’m late. Oh well….better late than never….right?
