I created a diversion for the pirates today. I had purchased this online bargain ($19.99!!!) months ago. And decided today would be a great day to introduce it, to keep the kids 'occupied'. I am so smart sometimes it scares me. But I digress.
Today, I built a pirate ship.
With my own two hands, and forty-two screws. Even though there were forty-three screws in the box.
To think, in the past year, I learned how to play handbells (even though I can't read a note of music and Bell Goddess Miss Rita has to color code my notes for me), became a level 3 MASTER scrapbooker (this can be verified by Dr. Crop), started a blog, developed a more laissez-faire attitude by sometimes allowing my children to have ice cream for breakfast on Saturdays, and well, heckfire, me built a damn pirate ship!
Surrender the BOOTY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Me's got a HOOK for an ARM!
Shiver ME Timbers!
All I have to say is........
Where's the RUM?
