Maybe it's just because I'm a stay-home-mom, but I have to say, weekends are CRAZY around here, and my Mondays are actually as welcome as most working-out-of-the-home people's Fridays. That probably doesn't make much sense.

ANYWAY, the party on Friday went well! I am happy to report I had zero wardrobe malfunctions, I didn't break the itty bitty spiky heels off my pumps, I didn't drop/spill/projectile missile any food on my clothes, and things were pretty...normal.

Saturday was a lot of running around, and Thing One had her first basketball game. They lost, but put up a good fight. (Although we were shaking our heads when Thing One got fouled and instead of having her go to the line to shoot, they put another girl at the line, who had the same identical blonde ponytail.) Thing One didn't speak up, which surprised us, and the girl missed both shots, which made me mad, because Thing One would have made those free throws.

Oh well.

Sunday was a little less crazy, but I was ready for today. And I am not sure WHY, because I had to take the kids to school, take Thing Three to the Dr., then take him to school, go to the dry cleaners, go to Southpark (last day for extra associate discount at Belk) call 8 stores because they were sold out of every single pair of Uggs in size 10 (I finally found a pair in Knoxville, TN and had them shipped here), go to the grocery store, go to the playground and freeze my butt off while Thing Four ran around pretending he was Iron Man, and now I'm finally home. But I still have to pick up kids from school, run to South Carolina to pick up my Christmas cards from our photographer (don't worry, I'm being melodramatic, SC is only ten miles from my house) and cook dinner and do a load of laundry and take Thing One to Basketball practice and plan a lesson for Family Night.

So, I guess the title of my post is moot.

My name is Matt and I work for We're looking to connect with some soccer mom bloggers and love your site. We're hoping you'd be open to reviewing some youth soccer shoes for us, which you could keep in exchange.

Let me know if you interested,
