10 on 10: March

This month’s 10 on 10 caught me off guard.  The hours and days and weeks have been flying by lately and I could have sworn I had another day or two before the 10th.  Not so.  I remembered (got the FB reminder from our group) while sitting at the animal clinic with our sad pup.

Our Saturday took an unexpected turn when our dog tried to dig his way through a rotted tree trunk to catch a chipmunk.  Chipmunks might be his undoing.  He loves them so…or at least he loves the chase.  He’s doing very well…although he’s none to happy with the bandage.  Taken with my iPhone.  1

Home again and resting easy on the couch.2

I promised Legos today.  Scissors at the ready….she was in charge of opening the new lego bags.

I ate a brownie and contemplated the disaster that is our kitchen counter. 6

See? 48 hours ago this was spotless.  The pile is growing.  It morphs into a life of its own at an exponential rate.  Within the pile: matchbox cars, Skipbo, a Dr. Seuss hat, finger painting, art work from school, mail, tissue paper with stickers, orange felt used for a mushroom costume, a homemade placemat, and a lightbulb.  And a dog leash. My children are convinced that all of these items are essential.  There’s a big part of me that agrees with them.  I just wish I could contain it better.   7

Exhausted.  He spent the afternoon playing outside at a birthday party for a friend.  He was asleep by the time we pulled into the driveway.

Dinner.9

And movie night.  The Jungle Book and popcorn.  10So there you have it.   A last minute 10 on 10.  Crazy, chaotic, but real.

One of my favorite ladies is up next!  Head on over to see Jessica Lewis and her 10 on 10!

    Seems like a fairly normal day . . . love the look of determination on C’s face with the LEGO directions. Hope Bilbo is on the mend . . . xoxo.

  3. I’d have to agree on the essential pile of treasures. I’m sure your pup will be back at those chipmunks in no time!

  4. Oh, poor Bilbo! I hope he heals quickly (and maybe learned his lesson, too?)

    I think you’ll be able to contain the piles once the kids are grown and gone. In the meantime, look the other way. 😉

  7. My kitchen and clutter is worse. The popcorn shot made me just go to the microwave and make some for myself. And your dog is trying to get chipmunks?? This makes me giggle and want to see more.. not more bandages, of course! But more of this story – maybe like one of those old school narrated nature films. Get on that. And do it in film, because that makes sense. 😉
