Uggg! I want someone to explain to me why youtube insists on choosing the most ridiculous still shot for the “cover.” How about the first frame when I don’t look like I’m surprised a fly just flew in my mouth?

Here are the other two options youtube game me. Equally frightening. If someone know the answer, please be so kind as to email me.

Now, as for the video, it is about Synchrodestiny: the idea that nothing in life is a coincidence. Getting my video-legs back on, so I promise they won’t all be 5 minutes long! I just got on a roll…

I got some hilarious emails & comments from readers and friends about my Friday’s post that prompted me to take some snap shots from a different perspective.

It is easy to zoom in, filter out the noise, and see beauty in everyday objects around you. Zoom out, however, and I live in the heart of the Chaos Theory.

Let’s start with my desk, which looks like this every day. I have an organizational rhythm beneath the exterior mayhem which Dalai Dan cannot appreciate. This desk is possibly our biggest threat to our marriage, second only to his milk expiration date phobia.

My bathroom is not much better. If I know I’m going to use all of this stuff the next day, why bother?

Let move onto the animals, who try their very best to add a unique imprint on our home. Remember my favorite chair? It is right next to this mess created the same day by our bladder-challenged dog.

Moving onto our cat, who poops no less than 12 times a day. And every time she does, she digs a whole big enough to conceal a dead body, enthusiastically flinging her litter all over the floor.

Notice the towel under her litter box? It is there because she constantly underestimated the size of her butt. I can’t tell you how many times I have watched Mia squat her bum over the edge and pee all over the floor.

There is the dirty girl…

Our children are no better than the animals. Their destructive force is immeasurable. I have commiserated about it with you here.

Dalai Daniel’s lego obsession has not been thwarted. His lego men, heads, arms, and pieces are still all over the house. And in the vacuum cleaner bag. I bet there are 3 dozen severed lego hands in there.

This is a light day for the air hockey table. Only home to 3 coats, 2 pairs of socks, 1 plate with cemented quesadilla cheese, 2 granola bar wrappers, 1 backpack, 1 guitar, 1 tennis racquet, and 27 school worksheets.

I have my limits. I refuse to show you what I found INSIDE the toilet, which could be anywhere from 8 hours to 3 days old. We are still working on flushing in the Dalai household.

All-in-all, an accurate reflection of a typical Sunday mess.

I hope this makes you feel better about your stained carpet, overstuffed drawers, and out-of-control clutter. You are in good company 😉

I’m off to clean! Have a fantastic, clean day!

Ever since Jess Ainscough posted this on Wellness Warrior (an awesome site you should check out – she has an amazing story) I can’t stop watching it. It completely gives me the giggles.

How is it possible that there are people out there so weird creative, they come up with talking shells…and it works?

Trust me, it will give you a smile during the last, crazy Christmas push…

Mid Holiday Review: Here is a recap for all of you who don’t follow me on Facebook or Twitter.  (hint hint)

There was our first snow…

The birth of our tree

Its quick and untimely death

And after seven days, its miracle resurrection. A little drier. A little uglier.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without 4 different school programs and a child who thinks they are lame. And having to wear a red sweater is undignified.

Then the Amazon boxes started arriving. Forgive me, sweet and precious trees. It was either you or my sanity.

Now it is time to wrap. And wrap.

And eat cookies.

And drink



May your weekend be filled with great fun and productivity!
